I recently enjoyed a lovely vacation in Hawaii and was asking my Soul what primary resonances and energies I should focus on while I was there. The phrase “original source” immediately came to me. I thought about how the land itself feels particularly connected to its origins because of the lava flows coming directly from the Earth’s core in magnificent, fiery fountains and then hardening into solid landmass that can support life. I connected with the soft, gentleness of the Divine Feminine energy which is so prevalent there, both in the fluidity of the ocean and in the more easeful and welcoming lifestyle of the traditional culture. And then I asked, “What does original source mean for my spiritual evolution?”
In Standing in the Light®, we teach that we are all in the process of coming back into alignment with Source and fully experiencing our Oneness with All That Is. We have never been separate from Source, but we have believed in the illusion of separation for so long that it feels real to us. My “original source” feels like my original spark of uniquely creating as an individual consciousness, before all the stories and emotions I created about who I think I am. So, by focusing on that origin energy, I was bringing myself back to that basic remembrance.
In the Fall season, we have many rituals that lend themselves to “taking stock” of where we are and where we’re going. We have the energy of going back to school, reviewing what we know and what we will be learning in the coming year. There is also the energy of the harvest and gathering up what we’ve grown to see what we now have to sustain us through the next year. We process the fruits of the harvest and store the seeds for the next growing cycle. These activities have in common the questions of “Where are we now and what is our next step going forward?”
We can make use of the natural energies of this coming season by taking stock of where we are spiritually and bringing awareness to the spiritual basics. What are my priorities? What is my divine truth? If I strip my self-perception down to its essence, who do I believe myself to be? How can I simplify my life back to the basics? Fancy retreats, juice cleanses and even special meditation techniques can all be useful tools at the right time, but they are still just ways to take us back to the simple remembrance of who we truly are. Who am I in the stillness and what do I know to be true? It really is just that simple when we take a quiet moment and listen.
