Since my birthday last month, Spirit has strongly guided me “underground” and the last 10 days or so have been a fight against that pull in order to organize a birthday celebration for my daughter. With the help of my village, it is all done and now the call has come again to descend back down into the cavernous realm of the Deep, the belly of Pachamama, to wait patiently, to do nothing, or as she herself has described it “to gestate”. She was very clear that there is to be no adding or creating anything “new” until Spirit is ready to birth me back out into the world. I don’t get to decide the timeline, which is perfectly fine by me.
I used just hold these downloads like a golden ticket with absolutely no idea how to integrate the information. I’ve learned over time that it is helpful to ask questions.
What does going underground look like? It looks like quiet, soft, present awareness of the looks-within place. It looks like slowing down. It looks like saying no. It looks like putting my needs first. It looks like listening everyday in the presence of Fire. It looks like paying attention, observing, saying less and sitting more. It looks like disengagement, retreat and sacred silence. It is practicing patience, reverence and deep respect for the powers of Nature and the web of life that is much greater than what can be seen in material form.
Happy birthday to the most incredible, lively, kind and vivacious 4-year-old I know. And now, a deep dive back down to pick up where I left off 10 days ago...
