Tuesday morning was odd. Talking with Lea H at Sisters I noticed the flickering lights. then, a sudden headache threatened to overwhelm me in yoga, so I took “the big guns” to ward it off. Sauna meditation was all over the place. But, the one consistent thought was “Regis Labyrinth.” OK, I had time. On the way to teach I thought of all sorts of reasons I didn’t want to stop at Regis. But, I found myself waiting at the stop light in the left turn lane perpendicular to the road to Regis. OK, I’ll go. Once there, I just sat in the car with the sun streaming through the sun roof.
I simply started to cry. “Why am I here?” and a clear response was, “I need you to be here. I need someone with me.” Gosh, even Universe needs companionship. (Which I have thought of before.)
The mantra and image of breathing in Love from the Universe and drawing Energy from the Earth then breathing out Loving Energy has long calmed me so that was the drill for a while. Starting with myself, extending to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the US, the Northern Hemisphere, to the Southern Hemisphere, the Oceans, the continents.
Then, the people on the Energy Keepers List of which I am a part received the healing energy and outcomes for the highest good. For those who have died and their survivors may peace be with them as they heal. Jane and David W. were before me as they work through the debilitating Lou Gehrig’s disease. Margee C. with whom I teach who traveled to Kansas City to be with family during her mother’s emergency heart operation. Gratitude to my family – immediate – Rich, Dan, Nancy, Brian – and extended including cousins. Friends near and far.
So, I sat as calm descended. Images of Palm Sunday, Holy week, Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane with his disciples who repeatedly fell asleep and Jesus’ admonitions to them. I felt very much there.
Again, the question, “Why me?” and the clear response which has come to me before was simply, “Because you will listen.” Wow.
I walked to the Labyrinth, stood for a few minutes and on leaving noticed the brick, “Instruct”. And, know that I am called to do that.
