Surrendering to Emergence

Dear Richard,

Emerging is a theme that is happening constantly all around us.  Whether it is transforming within embodied form or  passing on to become part of the vibration and energy that is a part of all change.  Everything is interacting with everything else and co-creation emerges.

Your last post Richard points the way to this within and without of the emergence that is constantly present.  This unseen rhythm is felt, and somehow is becoming more real to many of us as we remember the deep interconnection that orients all of life.

It is just this that I want to give a personal example of from last night.    Let’s just say that events of the last few days have conspired to test my awareness and my willingness to be out of balance.  Black and white anxiety based thinking, and ego driven control resulted in what I call a “crash and burn” syndrome tipping me way off center.

It is not important what the “crash and burn” details are, but more relevant are the ways in which I was informed that being out of balance had some definite rewards and rich territory within to explore.  Releasing attachment to being “in” balance brought me back  “in balance” if you can believe that!  It also brought experiences  that will serve well the next time a tidal wave comes into my life!  And there will be those times for all of us.

What I couldn’t see, feel or even conceptualize was right there within the territory of imbalance.  After a few days of dwelling in this place of imbalance an event happened that took me so far into an emotional outpouring that my black and white thinking and presupposed conception of what next steps to take were shattered.  Other possibilities then emerged…and I surrendered.

Last night was the second night in my new home sanctuary here in Austin, Texas.  There is quite a bit of space as no furniture or other niceties of home have been placed or chosen yet.  Now I could be in a hurry to get this remedied (black and white thinking) or I could surrender to the feeling of spaciousness and light coming into and out of this dwelling surrounded by trees and green space.

I chose the latter – and nature contrived to send me numerous messages within my dream and awakened sleep time.  There was a visitation.  Right about now you may be thinking that I am certainly crazy, but I do believe that it isn’t until we remove ourselves from a rigid cultural and past experience controlled perception of how and when we should think and act that we can truly open into our lives.

I was visited by what I call the Spirit of the Breath….and the force and flow of the rain.  Deep in the wee hours of the night my entire being was aware of “being breathed”.  There was absolutely no effort involved and the freedom and sensual feeling was way beyond what I experience in my day-to-day life.  All breathing spaces within my body were expanding softly, fully, powerfully and with grace and absolute ease.

The pleasure and ease of being breathed is what I believe we innately are coming to as the global shift speeds up.  As we individually and mutually agree to move into and out of balance deep trust will emerge that we will find our way.

Our breath moves out of shallow, holding and contracted states in order for the Earth and all life to heal.  We are living in and connected to a breathing Earth and are a direct reflection of what is going on throughout the cosmos. We are the Earth.

Woken up from within this deep breathing state the rain came next pouring through my open sliding door reminding me to come back home to flow.  Informed by this water element, of which we are a major part, that there is a way around obstructions by surrendering to the pathway that is always to be found.  Going out of our way at times…… trusting that the larger Source always calls us home.

Natures messages and the rhythm of my own breath remain signposts along the way as a reminder to come home to the possibilities imbedded in each moment.  Are we waking up and collaboratively emerging? Or are we demanding control, in denial,  or running away?  I trust that I am part of the first group.  How about you??

With Love,

Gaye

  1. Helo Gaye. Hope you have come to terms with your recent experience.
    What you relate to in the second half, sounds like you had an OBE, “Out of the body experience”. It is wonderful when that happens and with you, it came “out of the blue” so to say,never intended. But was it ???
    Spirit deemed it to be that way, as when we are in thinking mode, we do not always see what is at hand. Once we let go, everything becomes real reality !
    For that to happen to you, you had to be first totally relaxed and that was in
    sleep mode ! You have so much on your mind, it needs clearing to make it possible

    room for what is to come. Once you were “elsewhere”, Spirit was able to come through to guide you and show you the way through symbology.

    Sometimes one is able to do this

  2. Sorry, message seemed to get too long and cut out.
    What I meant to say was that clearing is needed to make it possible for Spirit to give you the guidance, often in symbology.
    It is great to have the ability to have an OBE when so desired. To train yourself go easy and ask for the guidance. To start, always ask to bring you back say after 5 minutes, then gradually extend the time.
    That way, Spirit will help you as you are making the effort and endeavour to raise your vibrations higher to be able to receive and understand their Guidance.It gives you great Peace of mind once you are able to do so.
    That is when you hand yourself over into their care to be guided to your Highest Good.I wish you well and all shall be well. You will see this in hind-sight. Hand over the control and let be. Love and Light Louise.

  3. Hi Louise!
    Your comments are always so meaningful to me. This actually was not my first OBE as you would say. I have had them many times throughout the years since a child, sometimes with intention, and other times like the one that I had last night. The Spirit of Breath has visited me many times before and I find, like you say, that it is always meant to assist me in a time when I forget who I am. All I can say is what an immense pleasure it is to be guided in such a profound way! I surrender…. Much Love! Gaye
