Flow 3-26: I see only love where you stand
1:4 Naming is a holy act, an act of power
In the fourth piece of the first transmission, the guides talk about naming as a holy act of power. They give me an invocation (blessing, spell) to remove the bindings of condemnation from a person I love - to release myself from shame and grief and release her back to blessing.
And now we will talk about naming.
Naming is the act of drawing attention to one part of the wholeness, looking upon it and binding it off as a separate and distinct, as itself. As such, naming is a holy act, an act of power - for naming defines a thing as its name. As such, naming matters.
Now this is not to say that naming is SO important that ‘little you’ cannot approach it, and we can feel/sense in your energy, that these words ‘holy act’ and ‘act of power’ hold some threat for you.
We will soften these words so that you can integrate/absorb them. However, we do not need to turn down the intensity of this function.
In truth, naming IS a holy act, an act of power, and we want you to get used to the truth: you are allowed and capable of performing holy acts. You are allowed and capable of flowing power. And you will become accustomed, through this work, to flowing power – to moving energy through your own voice, your own body, your own word.
As we are just beginning, we will soften the words: ‘holy act’ and ‘act of power’. And by ‘soften’ we are saying that we will untangle them for you – with you – we will extract/unpack the layers of misunderstanding and projection they contain.
And yes, words contain energy. They are carriers of thought and meaning and often, overlaid/bound up with feeling/emotion, especially words like ‘holy’ and ‘power’ and, as noted earlier, ‘God’, words which have been claimed by your religious traditions and infused with interpretation, rules and limits on their use. (This is an example of the way in which your punishment/reward consciousness responds to bindings; and how you are discouraged, by self-censoring, from asking questions and seeking answers. Inside of these bindings, you are encouraged to repress the rising of joy, of curiosity and openness. This book is an invitation to follow joy - to be led by joy, for joy will always return you to wholeness.)
Holy, Power, God. Holy, Power, God.
You will get used to writing these words with us. This writing with us will liberate these words for you in other contexts, when speaking them or writing them on your own. And the reader, following along, will notice the softening and liberation of these terms in his or her own life, as well.
In fact, Amy, you will see that writing with us will liberate your ability to flow your own work, your own books, your own power. You will get used to it – and you will unbind the habits and stories about ‘not ready’ and ‘inherited habits’ from your mother.
And here we will stop to offer counsel about that.
You (Amy) have bound an image, a memory, of your mother sitting at her desk with piles of revisions of her poems – overflowing in drawers and desktop baskets – which she went over and over and could not release.
You have bound this image to the words ‘tongue-tied’ which you were given, at age 29, by (the psychic) M.B. Dykshoorn. This image bound itself with other things he said, words of prophesy which you cherished and so, you kept it all.
We are working with you now to liberate this image from binding and to release the fear and sadness you feel when you re-mind yourself of this memory when your energy feels “too big’ or moves ‘too quickly’. When you re-mind yourself of your mother’s struggle to express herself and you name yourself as ‘her daughter’ you bind the inheritance of these traits in yourself. Like a magic spell, this softens your fear [of being too big] in the moment but it binds you to an inheritance [being tongue-tied] which is not real.
In truth, you are not tongue-tied. You are fluency and this inheritance you believe in is mere illusion, an image you made when you condemned your mother for being less than you thought she should be.
Unbind this condemnation from her. Unbind this inheritance from yourself. Return your mother to blessing. Then, re-name your true inheritance.
Re-mind yourself of your unique name and body. You are Amy. She is Kent.
Re-member your mother as she really was. Re-member her ways of grace, of beauty, and kindness. Her way of gentle wisdom. She was not ‘less than’ she should be. She was fully herself - and as such, a part of the wholeness of the good.
Use these words of remembrance, which we have taught you: I love you as you are.
These words remind you what is real - and automatically invoke the next step.
Re-union with blessing. Use these words of re-union: I bless you back into the good, the flow of love. I’m sorry that I used this name of condemnation (tongue-tied) to bind you outside of blessing and to hold you separate from my love.
I release you from this name. I see only love where you stand.
You and I are returned to love. For love is our true inheritance.
As you become more facile with this practice, you will need only this simpler version of the prayer to dissolve bound memory: I give this back to Love.
If you are enjoying The Flow Materials, I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment, like the posts - and by all means: Ask questions and share your own experiences in the comments.
As the guides have shown me, the more we engage with the work, the more the work expands in us and around us.
As I review the Flow Materials, I am increasingly attuning (again) to their message and frequency. As a result, I am rethinking all of my offerings for 2023.
I want everything that I offer to say: You are welcome here.
There, you’ll find Journey, a weekly Zoom call. A walk through your own interior landscape. There’s a tent at the top of a hill. A labyrinth. A forest. This is illuminated work - awakened dreaming.
Bring your journal and your open heart. You are welcome.
Join for the year or join month-to-month.
You’ll find The Well, a monthly gathering for guided meditation, delivered live (in a Zoom call) and then offered by recording. You are welcome.
Join the live call or listen by recording… or both.
There are one-on-one sessions. You are welcome to talk with me about anything, everything. I will listen and tell you what I hear and what I see.
Finally, there will be Salon.
Four week deep dives into juicy things.
I’ll tell you more when I know more.
I look forward to hearing from you - meeting with you.
