Joanna Macy ~ The Gifts of Uncertainty

Joanna Macy is my hero. For real, not just an expression. She is truly the woman I most admire, and she embodies the courage, determination, heart, wisdom, compassion, and love for this Earth, humanity and this uncertain moment on our planet, that I try daily to embody in my own little way.

Some days are better than others.

Today, after walking outside and being bombarded by trains, cars, horns, exhaust and blowing trash leftover from this morning’s pickup … after feeling confronted by the ugliness of factories, bare trees, dirty streets and the sad stumps of trees who used to reign supreme on our property before it called to us last Fall … Today, I really needed to hear this Joanna Macy speech. It’s one of the most poignant and inspirational talks I’ve ever heard:

Here’s the Rainer Maria Rilke poem she quotes at the beginning of Part 3:

Quiet friend who has come so far

Part Two, Sonnet XXIX

Quiet friend who has come so far,
feel how your breathing makes more space around you.
Let this darkness be a bell tower
and you the bell. As you ring,

what batters you becomes your strength.
Swaying back and forth into the change.
What is it like, such intensity of pain?
If the drink is bitter, turn yourself to wine.

In this uncontainable darkness,
be the mystery at the crossroads of your senses,
the meaning discovered there.

And if the world has ceased to hear you,
say to the silent Earth: I flow.
To the rushing water, speak: I am.

Happy Summer Solstice

Today’s post comes from a Raph channeling client turned dear friend. “Vi” is a Reiki Master Teacher and all around deeply compassionate woman who has found a way to personalize the Blue Room Meditation (originally shared with me by Tim Glenn). As Vi describes below, instead of inviting other people into this soul- and energy- balancing meditation, she invited different parts of herself. I love when people take tools and intuit new things to do with them — and then decide to share those new applications so that others can explore and recreate as well. Somehow it seemed important to share this on Summer Solstice, right after a New Moon, and the day of greatest light in the Northern Hemisphere. Let your Light so Shine!

Many thanks to Vi. I’ll let her share the magic below:

I wanted to share an amazing transformative tool & experience. This personally dovetails on much that has been unfolding for me over the last few days, maybe even weeks. So without going into long detail, let me just offer the tool and you’ll know if you want to explore as I did.

First, I started with Laura Bruno’s Blue Room Meditation. Last night before bed, while holding 2 heart shaped pieces of jasper two dear friends gifted me and small pieces of rough ruby & emerald that “Raph” suggested might assist me with my abundance manifestation… I went into meditation, inviting in my guides, etc. ultimately making my physical life experience here & NOW into a “blue room”. That’s right. Then I invited both my ego/mind and heart into the space. After a period of time I discussed what they had both brought to my experience and asked that my ego/mind now allow my heart to take the lead. It had done well, and in appreciation for all it has offered, it was now time for it to allow another to lead. Those who are students of A Course in Miracles will particularly appreciate this, I think. I really put my heart into this and truly felt a shift.

THIS MORNING, I went into the same space, this time however, inviting in all of the karma, drama, experiences, etc. of ALL my lives; past, present & future, in all dimensions and all realities. It was a crowded space! Again in a loving, acknowledging and gratitude-filled way, I asked Archangel Michael to escort out of the blue “true” me all of the karmic drama (from everywhere mentioned earlier), while leaving behind the lessons and understandings without any attachment or judgement — releasing ALL FEAR. Leaving behind only LOVE, JOY, PEACE, FREEDOM, ABUNDANCE…. and more to come with grace and ease. I stayed in this later space a long time just blissed out focused on being Love-FULL and Fear-LESS!
Coming out of it, it took me at least an hour to get grounded. Huge stuff has shifted, and it feels like it is still ongoing 3 1/2 hours later… like a DNA shift. I am breathing different.

So, I had to share. Hugs to all of you who I adore so very much! ~Vi
