What do a roadrunner and summer stillness have in common?
Right before the beginning of July, we experienced a heat wave that knocked us off our feet. We had no choice but to stay inside and do as little as possible, as slowly as possible. Now that it is July, I asked Spirit for healing messages. I heard the word ” snail.” We are to honour the snail as we “shed , release, and cleanse away the old .. all the while being patient…to submit and be still.” ( quotes are from the Book of Runes ) .
The challenge as we move through July is to not be a roadrunner; it is so easy to run from project to project , never achieving our goals. Stop! We can make a difference. Spirit says to ” not be indifferent to making a difference!!!” Even though we are tiny pinpricks in the huge universe of light and space, we must continue to carry out our lives with strength and purpose. We must believe in ourselves, casting aside the shadows of doubt.
Our self care as we move through this month is to rest when weary, to stop, look and listen within. The image spirit showed me was a gladiator from ancient times. At first I thought it was about courage and strength in the face of adversary. Then I realized Spirit is reminding me that we are not slaves in the arena of life, awaiting the thumbs up or down of the crowd. When we remember that we are already whole, we need seek no one’s approval as we stand in our own ‘AMAZING GRACE.’ I have included a lovely rendition of this song.
During this month, spirit asks us to give ourselves peace and quiet, trusting we are making a difference in the arena of life. Stop, look and listen!!! Thank you, Spirit.
