My message from my craniosacral session this week was about further integration of the left and right sides of my body.
The left side of the body corresponds to the feminine.
The right side is the masculine.
In my body, this delineation is so pronounced that my fingernails on my right hand are just like my Dad’s. And my left hand has my Mum’s fingernails – and no, they do not look anything alike!
The feminine (yin) is all about nurturing, being receptive, listening, intuition, empathy, compassion, receiving, etc.
The masculine (yang) is about taking action, manifesting, boundary-setting, protecting yourself and loved ones, making things happen in the world and physical realm.
So in my craniosacral session, my body was calling me to integrate my left/right, feminine/masculine further. This is something I’ve been working on for a couple decades, but hey, there’s always a new layer or aspect to take it further! So at this point, further integration means that I am to ACT decisively, powerfully, quickly etc. but at the same time be tuned in, listening, and receptive; to my intution, divine guidance, signs and synchronicity.
I realized that my tendency is to tune in, get my guidance/vision and then go act.
But I am being called to toggle continually between the two, ongoing, and gradually lessen the gap to where I can hold the space of both doing/being simultaneously.
So here’s my challenge to you:
Combine action with listening to your gut. Do them both, simultaneously – be ready to chop and change, about-face, or change directions, zig and zag. As long as you’re staying in action/motion, listening to your gut, it’s all good. It doesn’t have to be easy, or smooth.
Ease and speed are not always the markers that we’re on the right path – sometimes they are, and sometimes not. For example, healing is VERY hard, there is lots of difficulty, set-backs, struggle, but it is still the right direction, it is still the right path, with the mandate that – no matter what – we MUST MOVE FORWARD. We must move into wholeness.
At any point in your daily movements, pause and check in to where you are holding tension in your body. Breathe into the place of tension, or send energy there until it can soften. If it can’t, change your posture so it can. The idea is to move powerfully, but without tension or bracing.
Eventually, may we all get to the point where we can move through our days as powerfully as my horse, Montaro.
