My plan was to start out on Friday with a facial and hot stone massage. Tick that one off. Settle in with a glass of wine and a good book. Tick that one off. Historically when I am over tired, and just a little fed up with the volume of work that I love and have created I tend to curl up on the couch with good music in the background, a bunch of candles lit around the room and open the pages of a crisp new junk read! Candy for the mind is how my physician refers to them and maybe so as I can easily get lost in a fine mystery for a few hours and somehow my mind, body and spirit seems refreshed when I figure out "who done it". Having devoured Dan Brown's new book earlier in the week I settled down with Diana Gabaldon's new tomb An Echo in The Bone. I've waited 3 years for this sequel to Ashes in the Snow and before that I had read everything she wrote and was always equally fascinated. I experience her as a marvellous weaver of historical fiction with and a great ability to insert snippets of quantum science and philosophy in the most unlikely places.
And so I sit on day 3 of my restoration plan reading with Samson (my 17 pound Lhasa Apso) curled up beside me........no candles as it is only lunch time but everything else that speaks to me of "great reading" in place. And suddenly the waves started to roll and with it came a primitive howl and tears and a great urge to run to the bathroom. After considerable deep breathing my body started to stabilize so I did run to the bathroom and came back to the couch not to my book but to my computer to share what has triggered such a strong wave. I know with great certainty the wave is related to the upcoming launch of Guardians of the Vision Parenting For The Birthright of Potential. My visceral response to the content of that book triggered a similar response. Wave after wave as I read the contributions of my fellow authors. Those willing to stand in their truth and decloak significant details of their life so that the lives of others particularly children may claim the birthright of their potential. We share how in the context of the WEL-Systems body of knowledge we reclaimed our birthright our potential to manifest a different world. Us first and then a world where kids claim their potential rather than injury themselves to silence the messages of their body that they haven't yet learned how to move. The simple process of breathing the wave rather than clamping down changes life in a second.
Much has changed in my life in the past 6 years since I first laid my hands information about the WEL-Systems body of knowledge. And to my delight "there is always more!"
The following statement in my junk read triggered my wave today Claire, the main female character says"why is it that women don't make war, I wonder? Her husband says "ye're no made for it.......and it wouldn't be right; you women take so much more with ye, when you go." He continues and says. "When a man dies, its only him......and one is much like another. A family needs a man (the novel is set in 1776) to feed and protect them. But any decent man can do it. A Woman.............A woman takes life with her when she goes. A woman is...................infinite possibility." Highlighting mine! Although I know that repeating words in your head actually slows down your ability to read I still do it and as I spoke those words a spontaneous wail came out of my mouth and one more layer of poisonous pedagogy unravelled. The stark wisdom, the sense of authenticity in those words reverberated in my cells so foreign to much of my earlier experience and I know them to be true. As true as the authenticity of the words in Guardians of the Vision. And so to anyone reading this blog
