Sometimes you just have to Listen to that Inner Voice, and since the beginning of December I have been in need of just sitting in my quiet time, meditating and breathing in the peace I so needed..So how do you explain?
So I will embark upon a story…. And hope as the narrative is guided we may both emerge wiser from reading.
For weeks the Woman had found herself crying at the least little thing, her nerves shattered as the world about her seemed to dissolve into yet more madness. She would take herself off to her favourite places and talk to the trees as she pressed herself close to their strength, they absorbed her fears and she would return home feeling brighter.
But her nights were tormented by a sea of faces; she felt the cords of long ago pulling and weighing her heart down. Her empathy reached out and joined a part of everyone, she knew she needed to let go, learning to detach from outcomes, for she also knew within her being that ALL things were meant to pass, and that her journey was like many others was all part of the Universal plan. She needed to remember others too had chosen their path along their own particular road.
Her sleep was fitful, filled with dreams, which seemed to contain so many children’s faces. Large sad eyes, haunted with fear. The children were in the ocean, shouting for help, she would dive deep to pull them up one by one, but there were too many to save… She would swim to shore with jagged rocks, and lift the children up to those stood on the shore to be saved. But they folded their arms and turned away, saying they were not their responsibility. She trod water pleading for them to hold out their arms to take the children, but all looked away…. She sunk back into the ocean, into the cold blackness and would awake with the taste of salt upon her skin..
Her waking hours she would read many others thoughts and find so many synchronicities of similar emotions being expressed and she knew the energies right now were gathering momentum for Change.. And those who were in tune were also feeling the need to withdraw and send out love and compassion… She also knew from her guides that she would be tested, to keep her patience and hold her peace, as others would try to sap and unbalance her energy…. So she would walk, and garden and keep her own council.
It was while the woman was in the garden one morning that she was trying to interpret another dream and again the message was about the state of the world and her role within it.. She felt so heavy so sad that she could feel so many hearts all at once… She continued planting the plants that would bring forth the flowers in Spring.. But the tears blinded her and her hands shook. She collapsed to her knees in great sobs, as the world closed in on her shoulders… She knew she had to let go of all the past hurts, all the past injustices, and she knew she could not carry the weight of others. She cried out as if in pain asking the Universe to take away the burdens she was choosing to carry..
She looked up as a ray of light broke through the misty gloom of the Grey overcast December day and couldn’t believe her eyes… For there fluttering right above her head was a Peacock Butterfly, it hovered over her for maybe a minute flying around in circles.. She was motionless, speechless and watched as it disappeared as it flew into the Sun…
She cried even harder, but now her tears released something inside that had long been held within.. She opened her heart and understood… We need the Compassion, and only through such pain can compassion be felt.. So many souls choosing their paths, each within their own journeys within this time frame going through their own experiences. Choosing to release and let go too of possessions of this Material World..
The butterfly the symbol of Transformation.. She knew within her inner knowing Now was the time of Great Change..
And it was time to LET GO, and TRUST in the Universal Plan..
To be continued ..
