Rubies on the Road Less Travelled!
Updated: October 11, 2015
Dearest spark of the Divine – you!
What do you do to mark a shift in your life? Do you create a special ritual or buy a piece of jewelry, adopt a plant, say special prayers by a river or a beach, write a poem, or maybe change your hair? What is your sacred journey marker? How do you claim the new section of your journey so you are reminded of your commitment to Spirit?
We’ve all gone through a ton of changes this year (which I’ve shared with you, and the bravest of you have shared with all of us).
During these past few weeks this mercury retrograde has summoned up some old stuff to be sorted out. Truly though you either walk through it asleep and deal with it all later because events will force you to or open your eyes and do the work now.
Never ends. Sigh.
Personally I just think it gets a bit boring, but I don’t question it, or analyze it. Besides when you’re willing to do the work of self-love, compassion and forgiveness the nasty doesn’t last nearly as long. In fact it’s pretty brief.
What? I thought you little goblins were sleeping! GO BACK TO BED. Oh…. Right I remember you need love? You need to trust the universe? Spirit has your back little goblins. The Light is where it’s at.
The Light is Love.
When I allow the invitation of mercury to look again into the dark, I remember that in the real truth of all things all is well even if conditions look bleak. They are temporary.
Yes even the horrible things you just saw on the news that make you feel like your commitment to a better life, to stay plugged into Spirit is for nothing. You say to yourself nothing you will do will ever have any impact.
Everything we’re seeing playing out now in world events reflect the wounds of cultures and the consciousness of the people that have not been healed. This is why cycles in history repeat themselves. Each cycle is an invitation to heal. But the people need to wake up.
And, we are the people.
I sometimes yearn for the feelings that drove me so deep on this path in the beginning. Did it happen for you this way? You know the feeling when you’re on a pink cloud and just starting your spiritual journey, snorting every book and workshop hearing every word as if Spirit chose each one just for you. Remember that time when you get an awesome reprieve for a while, sometimes a long one too?
Isn’t it true when you first set out on the Road Less Travelled its like you’re walking down the yellow brick road with cheering munchkins and fairies and magic and finding sparkling rubies everywhere (and then there are those [email protected]!!? )
You finally got here WOW!
I think that happens because no one would stay if they knew that the price to remain is the pain of healing. Isn’t it true avoiding that pain just causes worse things?
It’s so freeing when you’re able to forgive yourself and the past and make a commitment to a new you, bravely facing the dark and shining your light in spite of the fear that comes up. Bravery and courage don’t happen in the absence of fear. The Road Less Travelled isn’t called Easy Street for that very reason.
Eventually when you do it enough and often it settles in your bones until it’s not necessary to do it. Then you move on to the next layer, taking each one down to the core of your true self. And every time you do that you get some time in that beautiful pink cloud and get to play with some sparkling rubies that hold so much joy and wisdom.
I’m all for that!
With Spirit it’s possible to change your life radically for the highest good. If you’re reading this I know you know this intimately. It’s also a lie that you will not ever suffer, or feel the world’s pain some days, or revisit your fear of financial insecurity etc.
But living in the solution is the answer not analyzing who did what to make you this way etc. We have to do the solution- plug into the Field of Infinite Possibility and trust that the crap in front of you will shift the longer you affirm and believe in Spirit. It will – it always will.
I have come to a new layer of my work to be as authentic as I can be, and this weekend I knew I had turned a corner and wanted to make some tangible marker to remind myself that Spirit is my co-creative partner and that I believed in the path of Light beyond all others. I wanted a talisman that would be noticeable.
So I went to get a new haircut!
I knew on the way there I wanted something radical. I said a prayer, asking for guidance and a jolly chorus of voices in Spirit said red red red!)
Sitting in the chair chatting with my awesome colorist Tracy who I have known for 30 years, I blurted out – make it seriously bright red and pointed to my scarf that is a beautiful ruby red.
And so, my sacred journey marker for now is on my head! Let me always remember the inner work brings me closer to the Light, closer to Spirit, and on that road collecting sparkling rubies.
Yes its bright but as you know, I’m no shrinking violet, and since I can’t wear those ruby slippers I think I will wear those rubies in my hair!
Love you always and forever!
Ok what’s your marker to remind you? Tag you’re it!
