Here’s what I KNOW:
⭐️Our intuition has not be shut down⭐️
It still functions beautifully, accurately and reliably. Maybe even more so, right now.
All we have to do is Ask.
And then listen.
Listen to that little voice inside, before the bigger voice tries to quiet it.
Sometimes it speaks out of other people’s mouths, or books or songs, or road signs.
The more we practice hearing it, the more it reports to us, the more it trusts us.
So yes, it’s a trust thing. And we have to go first.
Which we can do. Which we must do.
Because the wobblier the outside world gets, the sweeter and more important this relationship becomes.
I have not done a very good job of Accepting the Gifts, lately.
I have known their names but I have not let them in all the way.
I know how it feels in my body when I Accept the Gifts
A shrinking, almost to shriveling.
I also know how it feels when I do.
An expanding, a softening. A daring , a vulnerability. A not knowing exactly where I will put these new Gifts, how they will dance with all the other Gifts that already live in my life.
That part too, that re-arranging, is a Gift.
Today, I intend to Accept the Gifts.
Want to join me?
We sat in our rooms for weeks.
We have been quiet, even wearing fabric over our mouths.
We sat quiet for a long time.
We sat quiet with less distractions.
We sat quiet and saw people all over the world with fabric over their mouths. Just like us.
And then, we sat quiet for eight minutes and forty six seconds and something inside of us broke and woke up.
Something that might have needed the quiet of the previous weeks to feel its full dark red pulse.
Something that made it impossible to stay in our rooms and to stay quiet.
Now, after weeks of rest and quiet, we are loud and we are out of our rooms.
We are heart broken and we are powerful.
🟡 Like maybe never before.
