Holding Space Without Interpretation

This post is for my 2/16/24 Group Distance Reiki Session. If you are reading this at any time please know the energy and message, as it resonates, is perfect for you.

 


As I was adding my usual "starting post spiel" I found a hesitancy about the phrase "as it resonates", and this came through for the day:

Resistance has a message.  Sometimes (especially in a group session) our instinct in feeling this is that the message is ‘not for me’ – yet verify this is a neural dismissal.  If there is an emotional response of disagreement this too has a message of it’s own.  Sometimes it’s "not the time" or we’re not ready, but if we notice we are emotional yet are in a space we can handle it, looking at what we reject or resist is a great teacher.

 

I was drawn to create an altar of orange and yellow, perhaps for the Solar Plexus and Sacral Chakras, and perhaps beyond them as well... yet, when I went to thank and clear our previous group altar I was hesitant. It felt the "leaf stack" of items needed to stay and continue to contribute. I gently moved it to the left, while I incorporated the pieces calling out for today. It feels they will be working in tandem - wrapping up for the past energies and moving forward in this sunshine-y new pilar.

 

As I started out there was a strong feeling of animal powers and energies. A wide variety. The most prevalent for me was serpentine, yet there was a sense of looking wider. Is there an animal that has been coming up for you? Perhaps something you don't usually relate to, or look at in a spiritual light? I had this sense of spirit animals, or the zodiac, or the Chinese zodiac - and how each has its place... and while we identify with one (or some), all have their parts in us as well. We can't recognize the that the panther stalks and hunts, or that the bee pollinates and stings, until we understand those actions and functions on a human level, and we all do understand them at least somewhat. We can all stalk, hunt, pollinate, and sting in our own ways; at our own times.


So, know that many animals were with us in this session, and see who -and how- that comes to mind for you. 

 

Much of the session was spent holding Reiki for the Aura and the Heart.

 

With the Heart I was associating healing of The Central System.  I thought perhaps this was the circulatory system but couldn’t get clarification beyond “the central system”.

 

This area of clearing seemed to speak to, "Going through whatever it is you’re not going through."


After staying in this energy and with the Heart Space a while longer I found the message to be with what is.  Today was less about information and sensory feedback, but rather holding space and allowing.  Settling into the present moment in however it presents itself, and releasing any will to change.  What is now?  Be Here.   Stop in the moment and let go.  Sometimes energies need to be allowed to do whatever they will, and we don’t need to interpret or understand.  Inviting stillness often is the catalyst to natural movement and it’s inevitable change.  Energy will always be moving with or without our help and our will, so right now set an intention – and set aside still time – to be with it.  This may result in more change (the flow of nature) than any force or effort could create.

 

(I recognize even the most practiced can have times when stillness is difficult, and for most of us even more so, but consider giving this a chance. Know that even a minute or two counts.  And, either way, I spent some time holding here in stillness for you.)

 

I went into closing with an air of detoxification, which came with an inverted card draw of #7 COMMUNITY (from Sandra Anne Taylor's "Energy Oracle Cards" deck, with image and full description below).

 

Lastly, I want to reiterate the starting inkling I had in regards to what you may have read and felt about this post:

   Resistance has a message.  Sometimes (especially in a group session) our instinct is that the message is ‘not for me’ – yet verify this is a neural dismissal.  If there is an emotional response of disagreement, then this too has a message of it’s own.  Sometimes it’s ‘not the time’ or we’re not ready, but if we notice we are emotional yet are in a space we can handle it, looking at what we reject or resist is a great teacher.

Connection with Kindred Spirits

 

Reversed

This card reversed indicates feelings of isolation and perhaps loneliness. There may have been a recent disconnect with old associations or even a dissolution of some wider partnership. This may result in feelings of loss and grief, but take heart.

   It is often the case that as you shift your energy into a higher vibration, you may find that you no longer resonate with old acquaintances the way you used to. If that is the case, it may be time to move on to more resonant associations. Let yourself network in ways that reflect your higher intentions. Meditation groups, classes, book clubs, and the like are all places you may meet new acquaintances that are in closer harmony to you. You needn't allow your isolation to continue. It may take some conscious effort on your part, but now is the time to reconnect, network, and gain the sense of support that you are looking for.

 

AFFIRMATION: I open my life to the wonderful people around me. I am making strong and beneficial connections in both my personal and professional life.
