Inviting space energy (the energy of space) in our lives
This week’s theme feels like an invitation, or a creation, for the energy of space to manifest in our lives. Space, and the quality of spaciousness, are what make things possible; sometimes when we expect it the least.
I had a beautiful experience this weekend that taught me so much about creating and inviting space in our lives; almost, I would say, creating away from, or without, our mind. The mind, as we know, doesn’t invite space; it fills space with all kinds of busy thoughts, plans and worries.
I’m having sinuses congestion coupled with headaches; what I’ve been taking thus far didn’t seem to effect any change and I felt the urge, responding to my mind, to make another appointment with the doctor. The one I obtained for early Saturday seemed to conflict with a swimming activity we scheduled that same morning. I had two mental choices; one was to push for both activities to take place, and the second, to let the swimming activity go.
I chose the second and truly let go (far away from my mind) of that swimming activity.
The doctor’s appointment went well, I was done fairly rapidly and only needed over the counter medications. I got home and was under the feeling that we could possibly do something together later during the day; shopping perhaps, and I went about some personal activity at home. Twenty minutes later, my wife suggested that I take our son swimming. This suggestion totally blew my being out as I had already cleared the space for whatever wanted to manifest—except the swimming lesson.
This is exactly what clearing the space in our lives means, not attaching ourselves to any mental expectation or outcome; and it does invite an energy—a non-mental energy—that is creative and that will manifest according to WHAT wants to manifest, and not so much what WE want it to do for us.
The lesson was so much in my face that I intend to practice ‘space energy invitation’ as much as I can. Yes, of course, but how?
Yet, what happens when the picture gets much bigger and we want to create more space in our lives for something bigger to manifest? Dreams for instance. How do we let go on a higher, bigger level, without any mental attachment whatsoever?
And what does this energy mean for manifesting at a higher, collective level?
How do we invite the Divine to join into this space of creative energy?
How do we commune with the Divine? Letting the Divine in, running the show, so to speak!
