This dance between the heart and mind is a crazy and wonderful thing. Who leads and who follows? Maybe that depends on the song that’s playing and who has more experience cutting the rug. Lately I’ve been getting the feeling that the tune is about to change in a big way. And I’m not talking about switching out the Johnny Cash CD for a little Jay Z. I’m talking about music we have never heard before. A song that sounds so foreign yet so familiar that it captivates. You want to listen to it over and over and then you want to hear more songs just like it. You know that feeling?
Last Thursday I kicked off a two-day book giveaway. That entire morning I had this warm, happy glow that just came out of nowhere. It felt like Christmas or Thanksgiving even though I knew it wasn’t. I had the feeling I was getting ready to go somewhere special and spend time with family and friends I don’t see on a regular basis. It was a feeling of joy, excitement, gratitude and that, in general, this was not going to be a routine day.
I had a pretty busy schedule so before I got started I went outside to enjoy a moment of stillness and take in the unseasonably warm weather, ground myself and offer gratitude for my health, my home, my friends and family. I try to do this everyday but again, this day felt different – special in some way.
Fast forward to the end of the book giveaway. Two things happened – Over 1200 books were downloaded from Amazon and – thanks to an overzealous paddle boarding adventure – my lower back gave out causing some severe pain and making it really uncomfortable to sit, stand, walk or do just about anything.
To the first point – Yay!! The book was downloaded enough times to boost it to #1 in its genre for at least part of those two days and it hit #162 overall in free downloads. Not too shabby! I was very happy with those results.
To the latter I found myself wondering, what the hell? I just finished expressing gratitude for my health. It was the first thing I gave thanks for that day. Now I can barely walk. In true ego fashion, my mind was reacting to the situation.
But my heart would have none of it. Despite the pain and inconvenience, that special day feeling had not faded, even days later. I was excited about how many people would be reading the book and the unlimited potential that would come from that. I pressed on through the next few days even doing some physical work that I would normally refrain from when injured. I just did everything much slower. I was very deliberate and extremely careful. Every night I would stretch then meditate and ask my Angels to help heal my back quickly. Every day it felt a little better. That practice got me through to my appointment with a chiropractor and holistic healer.
In the past I would not have handled this with such grace. I would have been angry about my injury and depressed I couldn’t do anything. I would have been throwing those low vibrations all over the place. Whoa would have been me.
But now it was as if my heart stepped in and said, “Stand down brain, I got this.”
I’ve spent a lot of time and put a lot of effort into making the ascension from head to heart. This is an ongoing and eternal process but in this instance I didn’t even have to try. It just happened naturally. Exactly the way it should.
This just boosted the good feelings I already had but being a curious person I asked myself why now? I think I found part of the reason in a major change in energies happening today.
There is a powerful gateway opening on 11:11. The energy leading to it has been building and the echo of that energy will continue after it passes. It’s here to help us take another big step in remembering who we are and what we are capable of. We are becoming more intuitive, our hearts are taking over and our vibrations are rising. We are getting an upgrade. There’s a ton more information on the 11:11 gateway at www.spiritlibrary.com.
So it would seem that when it comes to this brand new style of cosmic music the heart has taken the lead. Of course along with this new music comes an endless variety of new dance steps. We no longer need to trace old patterns or learn outdated moves. We get to invent them as we go. Just like the universe and the ways in which it can bring us our creations, the possibilities are endless and cannot be fathomed by our thinking mind. Set your intentions to create the life you want, align yourself with those pillars of light and boogie down to your hearts content, people!
