Get out into it! That's the guidance today.
In the dream, a kitten wakes me up :)
Two days ago, I received this message: Get out into it! That's the guidance today.
You may have noticed that I haven’t posted lately. As The Flow Materials began moving off the page and onto this blog, the energy of my own life increased. Everything sped up And then, suddenly, Wait. Listen. Hold. Was it guidance? Was it resistance?
It felt like a wall - but on the interior, invisible. It behaved like a membrane, elastic but strong as the surface of a trampoline. Try as I might, I couldn’t push through it.
For two weeks, the wall stayed and so did the momentum. Though The Flow is on Wait. Listen. Hold. mode. I’m not. I am burning through old writing, starting new projects and putting together a book. Everything (well, almost everything) that I’ve been putting off ‘til later is coming to the front of the queue.
Of course, this is another stage of creativity. The doing part. The part where I take my ideas and make things with them. Where I stop listing all the yoga classes and start attending them. So, I’m asking myself: What if the ‘wall’ isn’t a wall at all? How might I approach this as a gift - a pause between the last month and the next. As space, an opening in the fire hose rush of FLOW where I might take a breath, sip this tea and rest.
Last night, I dreamed that a small furry animal was in my bed. As it scrabbled around between the back of my neck and the pillow, I work up (inside the dream). I pushed it to the floor. “Get out! Get out! Get out!” I shouted and I threw my new notebook at it. Now there were two small creatures skittering around the floor. What were they? Baby ducks? Chipmunks? I couldn’t see in the dark so I reached for my bedside lamp. I clicked and I clicked but it wouldn’t go on. I sat in the dark, listening to the scurrying and, It won’t illuminate. I heard. Suddenly, I became curious. I leaned toward the little creatures in the dark. Who are you? Then, Oh, I realized, You’re kittens! I woke up with a rush of emotion. I love you. I gasped. Why am I chasing you away? What am I afraid of?
In my personal language of dream symbols, cats represent creative projects. So, a kitten showing up to get me out of bed could be a ‘wake up call.’ Or maybe a new project tickling the back of my neck. In the dream, I threw my notebook at it, shouting, Get out! This rhymes with the guidance of two days ago - and the frustration I’ve been lately feeling as spring calls me back to life and I struggle (a little) to get my soft winter body into new habits.
Also, I know the guides are always here but I can’t see them and there is often, a sesne of working in the dark. I want very much to throw myself into it - to ‘get out’ the work but I hesitate (often) because I can’t see the future - where it’s leading me.
This morning, as I lay in bed listening for guidance about this, my pen began to move across the page. This is what I wrote:
Stop making lists and DO the list. Walk through the list now step by step. GET OUT THERE. Walk toward it and it will be. The map is beneath your feet. TRUST and MOVE the flow.
Okay, I get it.
Let’s get out there.
New. No paywall, only invitation. Paywalls just do not make sense to me. I trust that you’ll subscribe (it’s free) if you find value. If you choose to support the work (and me) with a paid subscription, thank you. Here’s a little button so you can check that out.
The Flow Materials
We’ve been quiet for a couple of weeks. Maybe use this pause to catch up.
I think of the Well as a tap on the shoulder from a soul friend. Little nudges and prompts to help you stay connected to magic - and to yourself.
In this 17-minute meditation from last week’s Journey call, I invite you to close your eyes and explore the landscape of the interior of your own heart - and from there, get the heart’s perspective on the landscape you inhabit every day, your own life.
The Well is a gentle touch from a soul friend. It’s included in your subscription. I offer it with an open heart. Do let me know what happens. I always love to hear from you!
This week on our Discussion Thread: Cultivate Beauty. Engage Silence. Open to what is opening to you.
