I am writing to you on a beautiful Saturday in Autumn here in the Midwest, in my home in Cincinnati. We have a kaleidoscope of colors in every direction as far as I can see, as the leaves are changing their colors and falling to the ground. This is a season of change, even though this summer has stretched a bit longer into the fall (much to my delight!). The trees are reminding us that it is time to let go and to begin the regeneration / recycling process that is inherent in humanity and nature.
As I have reflected on what to share of my journey for this week, the word that is most present is Conduit.
Conduit - "A channel for conveying water or other fluid; a person or organization that acts as a channel for the transmission of something; a tube for protecting electric wiring..."
For many of us, the conduit / channel for water is an easy and familiar one to understand and visualize. We can see where the water sits in a reservoir or dam... and then is funneled through pipes, with the support of pumps and compressors into the network underneath the earth... up through the pipes... into our individual homes. And then we control the faucet as we turn the water on and off when we need it.
That water supplies us with life. We use it to cook, to clean, to drink, to take care of our bodies. Water is an essential element for our human bodies and so we pay attention to how those conduits are transferring that water into our experience.
What we perhaps do not visualize as easily is the process through which energy flows in and out of our daily human experience. The conduits are unseen. The reservoir is not visible. And so many of us do not pay attention to how energy is flowing and moving through our physical bodies and in our human lives.
It is my firm belief that our understanding of, and increasing awareness of, our roles as Conduits of Energy is the KEY to healing life as we know it on this planet.
And each of us is individually responsible for our own energy flow.
Let us go back to the example of water. When we need more water, we turn the faucet on. It's a conscious choice to allow more water to come into our glass or sink. When we are complete or satiated, we close the valve and the water supply remains harnessed, waiting for the next time we open the flow.
It is the same for us with our energy.
As we develop practices that help us navigate or manage the flow of energy into our physical bodies, we become more efficient with how we use the energy.
Meditation is the gateway - the faucet.
Some may call it prayer or mindfulness or yoga... there are many ways to meditate, but the foundation through all of them is the same. It is a focused awareness where you harness the potential of your own energy. The more you do it, the more you trust the flow and the faucet... the more you are able to manage the flow of energy through you.
The beauty of this is that it's as simple as using a faucet for water. Anyone of any age can do this. It is not the exclusive secret of just a few. It is available to ALL.
As we become more comfortable with this process of managing our energy, it is natural to come into alignment with the greater collective energy.
We start to understand where the reservoir of energy is coming from, just like the reservoir of water. Staying with this example, we can see what happens when the attention of many is focused on water at a collective level, especially when we have an abundance or a lack of it. When there is flooding, a community will bring their attention on how to support that extra water being directed in ways that serve the greater good. It is the same when we are in lack in a drought. We conserve water as a community and we start to share our resources.
Using that imagery, it is easier to see our individual impact on the collective, global energy field of our ONE humanity. As each individual becomes aware of his / her own power to harness energy, we can start to connect this energy into our Earth, much like solar panels harness the power of the sun or wind turbines harness the power of the wind.
Humans are able to do that same process. We have an immense individual reservoir of Source energy outside of this planet that is available in every moment to every individual.
As we individually start connecting ourselves to that Universal Source of energy and we fill ourselves up first, there is naturally going to be an abundance, an excess that we can then direct and funnel down into our Earth to help power up the energy supply of our planet. We send our extra energy through the ground, into the invisible piping just like the water, creating a new field of excess energy within the foundation of the earth... available for those who need support to draw from in times of need. With this vision, we are able to co-create a reservoir of energy held in the ground, unseen but so, so powerful.
We, as humans, become the conduits.
Our Source energy flows through our physical form, through our energy chakras, and into Gaia, our planet, through the earth.
And then that energy resource, that surplus, brings equilibrium.
I call this process Infinite Embodiment and I offer an activation, a portal through which we can ALL create our own ways of being conduits of energy. Mine is just one example.
I invite you to explore this 22-minute meditation and then share it with those whom you know.
Let us start co-creating this web, this wave of healing that is ready to move around our planet.
Let us all step actively into this role of owning our full potential, our full power, our harnessed energy and maximizing it for the good of ALL.
These are exciting, yes - chaotic, and also, absolutely beautiful times to be alive on Gaia, Earth!
Autumn is a time of much play and delight here in my own journey. The next New Moon Circle is on Thursday, October 19th at my home. I am excited to chat, eat a yummy dinner, and set intentions with all of those who are able to attend, so claim your seat here.
On Sunday, October 22nd, the GuruGanesha Band is coming to Cincinnati for the second time and it is going to be a celebration of music, dance, and sacred chanting with the highest vibration possible! It is my hope that you are able to join us for this amazing evening. The link to purchase tickets is here (100% of profits supports children at Ramana's Garden).
And each week, we tune in to our own channels or transmission of energy on the Sunday group meditation call. If you have not yet joined this community, I invite you to come and play, expanding your understanding of how you move energy through your physical space. It is one of my favorite hours of the week!
Wishing you a beautiful Autumn weekend, filled with magical colors and lights and sounds!
So much love from my heart to yours,
