As the washing machine of life continues on fast spin, it is all too easy to get disorientated in dizziness from the spin cycle. We can become confused and befuddled by even the simplest tasks; a bit like trying to concentrate at high altitude where the air is thin and lacking in oxygen. Of course, we find ourselves in this spin for a reason, for it is part of the cosmic super spin or ‘wash’ cycle taking us from one state of consciousness to the next; we have to go through the spin cycle in order to become free of the excess in our lives in order to be free to embrace the next step in our evolution.
The spin is part of the cycle, and we can choose to avoid it, and try to slowly drip dry over a longer period of time, or we can ride the spin knowing that the destination makes the dizziness worthwhile. Of course, it is only when we can look back on the spin whilst we are gently drying in the brilliant sunshine of a new day, that we can see the value of the experience, for riding the white knuckle ride makes rational thought somewhat challenging!
So we may feel a little battered and bruised, squeezed, twisted and wrung out, energetically speaking, but there does seem to be a ‘higher purpose’ to the madness. However, knowing this and living with it are very different things...
Keeping on, keeping on can be exhausting and arduous, and it can be hard to ‘keep the faith’ when life feels like a series of brick walls or locked doors to breakthrough. Of course, we know that each wall or door is another layer to face, heal and set free, but when each one comes relentlessly crashing in like huge waves onto the rocks of our personal reality, it can be hard to come up for air. Yet, we have a choice; we can either give up letting the waves consume and devour us, or we keep on, keeping on. The warrior within us may not always feel strong, but as our inner light and guide, the warrior keeps us riding the wave and keeping the faith.
Of course, keeping the faith and championing ‘love and light’ is hard to digest when life is hard, but when we keep our eyes fixed on the destination, it somehow becomes easier. At the same time, we intuitively know that change is happening, albeit quite subtly on many levels, and we can begin to sense the shift towards more freedom and liberation in life.
At the current time there is a ‘push/pull’ effect occurring in the wash cycle, the push comes from an emerging sense of strength, energy, passion and focus; a desire to be active and to ‘be the change’. On the other hand, is a strong inner pull, seeking out healing and release within, and experiencing the ending of cycles or patterns (which, whilst necessary, can be hard to bear). As the inner world grows more intense though, strangely the confusion begins to subside, for our true strength, passion and energy surfaces as we realise that we are not powerless pawns in the game of life, but we are warriors, pioneers and visionaries! Sometimes, we need to experience the full power of the spin cycle to realise our Truth and to connect to our true essence.
So, whilst it can be hard to have faith when the going is so bumpy, riding the wave on this tumultuous journey to Self seems an important step, for it is only when we stop fighting the process that we realise by going with the spin, we can overcome the dizziness for we can go with the spin and enjoy the ride. It is at this moment, that we can fully embrace the process and know that we are ready to surrender to our true magnificence and to live the life that we are destined to live...
