INSIDE AND OUTSIDE BECKONS
My capacity to communicate effectively has been challenged repeatedly the past few weeks. Like character assassination, my treasured tool—the fine art of listening, restating and enhancing rapport between beings has been pummeled. At the same time, I have been receiving constant validation regarding my skills as a master exchanger.
When I wrote “Mental Illness Can Not be Healed with Mental Processes”, the declaration opened floodgates of mental challenges especially when others in my life desperately want me to engage in analyzing, judging and defending. With my unwillingness to participate in these forms of analysis, It’s left me pondering if I am going stupid or am I just too lazy to reeve up the mental mind and engage.
Last night I had a steeped dialogue with my son. The prior weekend I shared a touch therapy session with him. My training has me begin every session with a metaphorical tree breathing exercise that assists to bring in spiritual guidance and influence. My son was impatient during the initial step of our session—he wanted me to get on with the realignment of his body and his mind rejected my “airy-fairy” guided imagery.
I had the opportunity to share that this step was essential for me to participate in healing. The work is done in alignment with my higher self. My little self, ego self, is just an observer. To do the work it requires the recipient and myself turning things over to the highest good.
My hardheaded thinking, thinking son heard me. A man whose motto has always been “I’ll do it myself, knows his situation is out of control. He needed help and that was scary. Then to hear his mother share she calls out for help, opened a long closed doorway to the spiritual, the mysterious. He petitioned me to keep on dialoguing with him maybe sooner or later he’d get it.
Why does it scare so many to recognize that when one is vulnerable and the situation is too complex, it’s perfect to call out for assistance?
My son stated “I see too much and then I fail to act upon what I notice.” Once we promise to be in our integrity, if we see and fail to take action, we fear. We fear our true self and our capacities and often pummel others with our own projections especially if the others are courageous in their actions.
