Did you feel that earthquake on Friday night?

email Oct 14, 2020

I fell asleep early so when I woke up I initially thought my neighbors were being rowdy. I was all ready to let them know my feelings in that moment. But, before I knew it, my dog leaves the bed and we were rocking and rolling in the rumbling. I fell back to sleep shortly after, but before I did, I realized something about myself that I wanted to share with you today.

The first earthquake I experienced was very scary for me. It’s an experience unlike any other. I’ll never forget... it was like the world was dismantling itself, the air in the room was being sucked out, and afterwards there’s the processing of the experience.

After that, each time I experienced another earthquake, I found my center again sooner and with more grace and ease.

It’s been 20 years since that first quake. After being woken by our Mother purring like a cat on Friday, I had no trouble falling back to sleep.

The point of this story, is that when it feels like the world is dismantling itself around you - when it feels like the oxygen is being sucked out of the room - when it feels like the tides will never turn...

Remember this, Goddess...

This too shall pass.

Ride the wave.

Don’t fight it.

Don’t resist it.

Find a door frame, hold on, and remind yourself, “This too shall pass.”

When you get to the other side, when the rumbling stops, when you’re more spacious than ever, imagine what it will feel like.

From that place, imagine what becomes possible for you, your family, your community, and your world.

Thank you, Goddess. Thank you for receiving my share. If this resonates with you, or if you want to connect on anything coming up in your life, please know that I’m here with you - just click reply on this email to let me know.
