When it feels like you’re hanging by a thread, remember this
Life force, and the connection to the divine always shine on in the darkest of moments. Even when it feels like we’re free falling, as if we’re suspended in an abyss of pain or suffering, a knowing and an almost physical sensation of the thread that keeps us connected persists.
I have quite often felt like I was hanging by no more than a strand of silk, but always tapped into a profound comfort in remembering that I could explore those depths. That the connection–part umbilical cord, part spider’s silk–would continue to nurture me and be there when I was strong enough to climb out. Like a spider’s web, it would never fail. Like the mother’s lifeline forever extending itself to its child, never let me wither away beyond repair. Feeling that connection, albeit worn and battered, I could access the safety within my core. Safety allowing for reflection.
“And from this point of safety (you) look quietly about (you) and recognize that the world is one with (you.) The peace of God passeth your understanding only in the past. Yet here it is and you can undesrtand it now.” A Course In Miracles, Text, 255.6.7.
Close your eyes and follow your breath to feel into the connection. It’s in you, and it surrounds you. You are love, and you are loved. Always.
An offering of words for dark days
Hanging by a thread, be grateful
The connection is, without end or flaw
It’s one and the same, always
It may thin, it may fray
The eb and flow is eternal
Eternity knows no weakness
It is, as now is forever
If you find yourself in a place, where it feels like your soul is shrouded in sheaths of negative emotion, picture an actual golden thread running through the center of your body. Extending from your first chakra, running between your legs like a tail, rooting deep into the earth. And on the other end of your glorious body, continuing beyond your seventh chakra into the far reaches of outer space.
Picture your body as the meeting place for the flow of the earth’s nurturing mother energy, in confluence with the paternal energy of the ether. All of this energy being channeled to feed your mind, body & soul. Your whole being supplied with the magic of the entire universe. You are bound to feel into your internal glow, the divine connection that always has you covered.
“And what you call with love will come to you.”
