Back in January, I shared that I’ll be exploring the elements one at a time throughout this year, beginning with AIR. As I began my journey, I had thought that I would come in like a whirlwind – blogging more, sharing all of what I had learned in previous explorations of Air. But instead, Air showed up as stillness, as quiet, as that small space between each breath.
For many weeks I was forced to slow down with sickness, teaching me how to spend time with myself alone with no agenda, showing me the gifts of stillness and awareness.
Throughout that time, I learned so much about myself and I finally learned how to sit still in silence, which I was never able to do previously. Although it was a rough couple months, I am grateful. Grateful of the changes it made in me. Grateful that I can now enjoy a (semi) daily meditation practice to listen to my Soul. Grateful for the new fresh eyes on life. Grateful for this new found ability to tap into my heart and write to you with ease. Grateful.
So grateful in fact, that I’ve been resisting this feeling of Water coming into my world these past couple weeks. I’ve been feeling the shift. The Air energy I’ve been getting used to has been slowly lifting as the quickness of Water rushes in.
I’m a little anxious about it actually. Through my lessons in stillness, I’ve seen just how much I have stuffed my emotions down throughout my life. And do you know what Water usually represents? Yup. Emotions. I have a feeling that this cycle will not go as planned, just as Air was surprising.
In my first experience exploring Water last year, I thought much about how our society places its value on product, on the final result of creativity, and how, really, creativity is so full of mysticism. And so, the Water e-book I have prepared to gift you (which will be arriving soon!) is all about being in the flow of creativity. I had planned to spend my time writing about all the different ways we can be creative in our daily life. How we can tap into the easeful flow of the magic of creativity.
I hope to still touch on these subjects in the next couple months as we explore Water. But I have a feeling that Water has its own plans for me. We’ll just have to wait and see!
In the meantime, I would love to hear your experience with the Air cycle. Did you invite it into your life? What did it teach you? Share with us in the comments below!
