The Absent Intimate

Grail Oracle 2 Grail Oracle Orange

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock…

I can actually hear the clock in my office very loudly marking time as I write this piece and I have to admit that when I pulled the combination for us all this morning, I was secretly asking myself whether or not I should put the cards back in the deck and choose again… but what good would that do any of us? Instead I went off to do my healing sessions and began to contemplate each, seeing how the energy was playing out through the day.

This combination from the Intuitive Chalice Oracle blends Principle 2: I AM Detached, with the brilliant orange of the sacral chakra, the centre of intimacy and creativity and at first glance its a garing reminder of the biological clock running amuck and making no apologies for it… The truth is so much deeper than that and is the route of all impatience.

I’m one of the least patient people I know. Others tell me the opposite. Don’t get me wrong, I can wait forever if I know what it is I’m getting at the end of the waiting period but patience is about “waiting with grace” and I’m damn sure I’m going to make a song and dance about it whilst ever I feel like I’ve been promoted to “Advanced Mushoom Status” (Keep ’em in the dark and feed ’em on shit). I’m sue the angels despair of me regularly when I get into this mode but as always look on with deep compassion and endeavour to show me what this energy is really about… I remember when I was young, I was a drum majorette and we used to do something called “marking time,” most military marches involve this at some point, it’s where you march on the spot literally going nowhere…

Have you forgotten to create?

Whilst you are waiting (clock still ticking) for something to happen, someone to appear, dreams to come to fruition, or even just for your lift to arrive, you could be fully connected to your source of creative potential, your inner muse, and using the time to bring something else into being. Intimacy is the perfect joining of masculine and feminine, the divine marriage which sparks into life the birth of the perfect child (Oh God, I’m back to that biological clock), but it isnt just about man and woman and the “how long is it going to take to find that perfect partner with which to officiate that divine blending?” its about the masculine and feminine within you producing the perfect creation, whatever it might be.

Masculine creative energy needs feminine receptive energy to incubate and gestate an idea into existence, and if you are in the impatient stage, allowing yourself to become attached to the outcome and the deadline and the “what if?” and the “what’s the hold up?” then you have lost connection with the feminine aspect of self… She is The Absent Intimate.

If you have found yourself experiencing this impatience then may I suggest that you call on the very gentle energy of Quan Yin this week to help you find the feminine key to just being.

And if you’re waiting for something specific that you have no apparent control over, why not focus on creating something else in the meantime?

More next week… x
