As we spend time with our friends and loved ones, it is easy to notice many conversations include similar comments such as: “Gee, life sure has been intense lately,” or, “I sure have been experiencing a lot of challenges,” or “Things seem to be speeding up, and events have been pretty difficult.”
From one person’s perspective, current times could seem to be presenting pretty chaotic life events that are unrelated but full of unfortunate circumstances. From another vantage point, one could imagine an inner connected dance that gains momentum as it weaves through everyone’s experiences.
The following is a demonstration of a pendulum wave that was initiated by a single movement, and offers an example worth reflecting on.
A Pendulum Wave
In this demonstration, a single motion started the movement that affected each individual pendulum. If we viewed each ball separately, we would notice its movement and not think of its connection to the other balls. We would never notice any synchronicity. But when viewing all the pendulums, we can see how one action affects all the balls both individually and as a whole. At some points, the pendulum’s movement completely seems chaotic. However, it quickly becomes obvious they are connected as the movement flows into a pattern.
Filling The Space with Your Light
When I reflected on the pendulum experiment, it got me thinking about the effects of being happy or unhappy.
When we are unhappy and stuck in a fearful state due to what we notice out in the world, what we broadcast to those around us is that we live in a pretty scary place.
What if instead we punctuated our fear by embracing how we feel and then moved into a heart space? We could then take a deep breath, and move our fear into a lighter place that is capable of transforming our state. Then, with a sense of our inner light, we could turn toward another and share our light. It makes sense that this light would ripple and have an impact on others.
To help, take a moment and breathe in your fears. As Alana shares in the Seven Sacred Steps, place your hand on your heart, and let your heart transform these fears. The following video provided by WildDivine is a delightful reminder to also shine your light.
