Going through a spiritual awakening can be somewhat uncomfortable, and the more I find myself opening up, the more I see some similarities, yet differences with others along the same journey.
For me, I can get really cold, and I’m aware when I experience this sensation now, that a deep healing is taking place. I connect with the ancestors, my human design chart is full of depth – so this makes sense to me, and feels somewhat natural.
What becomes confusing, is that everyone has always told me to look up. Pray to God for help and guidance. Look Up.
I pray, yet I am asking to go down, which is against the mainstream current of all I have been taught by so many in the past. I was afraid at first, as I had been conditioned to believe that hell is down and heaven is up. To look down is bad, evil, sinful. Why would you want to look down?
Why? Because the Ancestors are buried within mother earth and I’m on a quest for knowledge.
I wish to learn, to observe, to play witness, and most of all offer my gratitude. We are a species rich in culture, history, and diversity, and there is so much to learn from the past.
To look down is not bad or evil, and it certainly is not “going to hell.” It is a sacred place of honour, where one can trace the foot steps of those who walked before.
It is easy to judge others for being “different” but before you do, I ask you to consider this simple verse “As above, so below.” There is as much beauty in the past, as there can be in the future, what’s important is living in the now. This exact moment in time where you draw in your breath, and have the ability to ask, “What can I do to help?”
We are all part of a past-present-future. Change starts from within and often through seeking to understand, instead of trying to be right.
Personally, I will be a life long student. Curious, seeking, playing witness, and always offering gratitude.
I vow to be different, to just be me, and accept the beautiful journey as it unfolds. I will look down, and up, and consider all angles, for I seek a win-win solution and welcome diversity with open arms.
