The First Hurdle – Unravelling Detachment

Between God and your heart, between you and home sit 5 seemingly insurmountable obstacles, the first of which is time.

The concept itself is flawed as in heaven time does not exist. Now don’t get yourself into that headspace where you start believing that you live outside of heaven because you dont, anymore than you exist outside of hell… these two opposing constructs are simply manifestations of your state being and your perception of it: heaven is home “Holding The Grail” whereas hell is feeling separate from, locked outside of and finding the cup empty.

It is said that time heals all things, this concept too is flawed. Recognising here and now that you are whole even in your emptiness allows the healing to occur and takes time out of the equation… the saying is therefore only true if you consider that the removal of time (or waiting) heals all things.

You can wait for an eternity to feel better or you can choose to feel better now. You can wait forever to have what you think will make you happy or you can be happy with what you have right now. Time makes no difference to how far from home you are or how far from God/Yourself you are, time is an illusory excuse to not take a chance on embracing all that you are meant to be… which you already are in this moment.

Time opens up a chasm between the wounding and the wounded and the wider the chasm, the more forgetful the wounded becomes… but the wound still exists. Closing the gap by taking time out of the equation completely allows you to face the hurt, pain, emptiness etcetera, head on, recognising that when you sit in the presence of your own vulnerability and don’t try to distract from it, fill it or obscure it in any way, shape or form that it is not your enemy it is your trusted ally, your best friend and your faithful servant. You have allowed time to hold you apart from you because you couldn’t face the intensity of who you really are.

Now you can see the first hurdle – unravelling detachment, don’t allow it to spill the contents of your cup again. Whatever you are suffering from or for, time is not your ally, being present with what’s true for now is.

Principle 2: I AM Detached

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
