Mermaid Monday- connecting to water, associated with creativity, cleansing, healing, intuition, and psychic abilities.
The current post-election emotional atmosphere has had this Empath working very hard to find peace. Empaths are very tuned in to energy and the emotions of others. We transmute for the collective. Besides just having compassion for people, my own feelings were especially churning after an online discussion with someone (a family member who has very different political views). Eventually, I left it at acknowledging that through what we said, I believed over all that we were seeking to be understood and that was more important to see than proving ourselves right. We both expressed love and respect for each other.
It also led me to realized that there were stories I had been telling myself about my child-self that maybe weren’t complete. It was time for me to process more and let go of everything from this story and what transpired over the last week.
We spent the weekend at my parents’ farm with most of my siblings and their families. There’s a creek there and I knew that by spending some time alone by the water, I could more easily release the jagged energy. The sun was shining, making the water sparkle so beautifully. The spot I photographed is actually the place we drive through to get to the house, so it’s quite low (when it’s drivable). The delicate trickle of the water was exactly the gentle sound I needed to let the negativity ease out and away. A particularly nice tree let me hang onto it while I turned my face towards the sun and cleared my vibration. It feels like perfect timing that I was there to be able to do this at this time and I am grateful.
A friend, Marcia Peters Coleman, shared this description of the frequency of Joy and I thought it relevant to what I experienced this week as well as the general energetic weather: “As Love becomes more and more unconditional, it begins to be experienced as inner joy. This isn’t the sudden joy of a pleasurable turn of events; it’s the constant accompainatment to all activities. Joy arises from within each moment of existence, rather than from any other source; this is also the level of healing, and the domain of saints and advanced spiritual students and healers.
A capacity for enormous patience and the persistence of a positive attitude in the face of prolonged adversity is characteristic of this energy field; the hallmark of this state is compassion. People who have attained this level have a noticable effect on others. They’re capable of a prolonged, open visual gaze, which induces a state of love and peace. …
One’s sense of responsibility for others at this level is of a different quality than that shown at the lower levels. There’s a desire to use one’s state of consciousness for the benefit of Life itself rather than for particular individuals. This capacity to love many people simultaneously is accompanied by the discovery that the more one loves, the more one CAN love. …
Within this realm we experience deep Transfiguration of the Soul, defined as ‘the complete change of one form or appearance into a more beautiful or spiritual state’. Our gifts and blessings are not longer enjoyed solely for ourselves, but in service to the Whole. We delight in the interconnectedness of each living being, and enjoy the consciousness and light of awareness available through authentically living our unique purpose in the web.”
