Sent off my article for the January 2013 edition of The Nimbin Good Times yesterday. . . titled ‘2013… coming from my strength’ . . . you can read their great paper on their website. . .www.thenimbingoodtimes.com . .. . takes a few days till new edition is uploaded. I’ve been thinking, as I’m apt to do, about ‘coming from my strength’ for some days now. So being on the cusp of 2013 . . . a very strong Full Moon in Cancer today . . . which is bound to stir up some emotion . . . and ‘past’ memories . . . I’m focusing on my strength . . . . my feelings . . . my needs. We’re not happy chappies when our needs are not being met!!
As humans we’re bound together in the one primordial energy . . . but with Bodies entombed in our own skin and flesh . . . our own memories, our own unique process. . . and our own path to tread, our own lessons to learn. Kindness, Love, Compassion and Caring. . . go a long way in making our journeys a joy to experience, and for some. . . a reason for living.
I love warmth, kindness and caring . . . a warm welcoming spirit helps me feel appreciated. Getting in touch with my needs . . . once again . . . oh, how easy to forget. Of course my ‘feelings’ are always around . . . being Kinesthetic, Empathic, Intuitive. . . with a psychic inheritance . . . . etc etc etc . . . my body feels like one big Feeling Machine. But then I jump to my familiar analytical process . . . to make sense of it all . . . not always a successful route, but it can be helpful if it leads me in the right direction . . . we have a mind/brain for a reason . . . it’s not always the boggy man!
So once again getting in touch with my Needs . . . they are after all . . . the basis of all operations here. I’m sure this brilliant Full Moon in Cancer is helping heaps. It’s not always easy for humans to identify their needs . . . we tend to focus more on behaviour, reacting to outcomes. But there’s always a reason we feel as we do . . . . it’s been a life long lesson, that one, for me. Our feelings are connected to our needs . . . they’re the messengers, like our emotions (and often they come tied together . . . ‘specially for us girls. . . .). When our needs are not being met . . . we’re being told . . . we just need to become more familiar with the language . . . .AND have the courage . . . . to speak UP!
We are worthy. . . to have our needs met . . . well, it’s not really an option . . . it’s a necessity . . . if we want to be healthy, wholesome, functional human beings. ‘Cause when they’re not . . . all hell breaks loose . . . we definitely then don’t come from our strength.
On the Macro . . . . I see 2013 as the Year of Peace . . . on the micro . . . I’ll be coming from my strength. Oh oh . . . that means speaking up! But. . . . and a big but . . . in the kindest, caring, loving, respecting way. It’s an expression after all . . . not a direction. It’s building . . . not destroying. It’s acknowledging . . . not denying . . .. it’s caring . . . it’s coming from my strength.
So when those feelings come up. . . which they’re bound to over the next couple of days . . . sit for a moment . . . zoom into your internal world go a little deeper . . . descend with loving kindness, gentleness and sacredness. Ask to be taken to your Chamber of Needs . . . gently respect the environment you’re in . . . you’re the most amazing Being this world has known . . . you’re born from the Sacred . . . you’ve never left, it’s where you reside. The door to the Chamber of Needs opens slowly . . . a shining, Golden Light immediately envelopes you. And there you sit . . . in the centre of this brilliance . . . . yes Sacred One . . . your needs are the most natural part of you . . . they are a part of who you are . . . and they need to be fed . . . just as your Body needs this precious Breath.
May 2013 be a year of Strength for you. . . recognising yourself . . . and shining so brightly . . . that only the strong and loving, kind and gentle . . . are attracted to you. We can only ‘attract’ . . . we cannot pursue . . . .
lots and lots and lots of gorgeous, brilliant Love, Love, Love . . . to you . . . remember, you are precious, precious, precious . . . beyond words.
