Never mind being in the present moment , that exalted state of spiritual awareness. Do you resonate with having time? Time is such an elusive entity. On the one hand the tic toc world of contracts and obligations tugs on our field of energy to direct it into space-time co-ordinates such as due dates, showing up for work and a specified length of work day, date of retirement etc. We push the boundaries of our energy field to make time, be on time and give time to our obligations. Sometime we oblige our time to others because we can’t say no, or feel dis-empowered to do so. The ticking of the clock (okay, digital movement) seems to release something in our brain that moves us forward, often robotically.
Among other factors, this forced use of time, if not tied to our personal goals and life direction with a heavy dose of self-esteem, causes us to stop resonating with our own innate sense of time and timing. To cope with the energy field imbalances, we become attracted to time-wasting activities, crisis based activities and activities that don’t matter. For the things that do matter a great deal, we may find ourselves with no time or not nearly enough. You can imagine how anxiety is fed by these time patterns!
On the other hand, I note that man is the only species that carries a watch, cares or asks ‘what time is it?’ The rest of nature shows up in some inner timing for what they are moved to do. The looming equinox has me thinking about our sense of time, timing and definition of time. Before electricity and industrialization our energy field was more tied to the sun-dial. We were active when the sun was up and asleep shortly after it went down. We slept more in winter than in summer.
Personally I can feel a shift in the energy patterns brought about by the shortening daylight hours. I am gravitating to going to bed earlier and when I do ,I wake up more refreshed and noticeably happier.
The question is – If we resonate with our own natural inner time clock could we be less dependant on clocks and more driven by a goal or intention or a chosen direction in life? Would we be less anxious? What would life be like if we could spend our days in the natural direction of where we need to be for our needs to be met at all levels?
This week I invite you to notice your energy level in relation to your use of time. What is pulling on your time? What releases time? How are you thinking about time? Do you have time for everything you want to do or is your use of time governed by others? As you notice how time is working in your life or not, notice your energy level.Comments welcomed.
With love and light Carolyn
