All the natural movements of the soul are controlled by laws analogous to those of physical gravity. Grace is the only exception. Grace fills empty spaces, but it can only enter where there is a void to receive it, and it is grace itself which makes this void.
- Simone Weil
We put so much emphasis on when we’re at the crest of the wave, as this is when we experience the heights of joy, love, achievement….yes, that. We are after all, placed on this earth plane to achieve our highest purpose. So ascending the wave to the peak is where we create, we build, we do, we physically manifest onto the material plane that which represents our innermost desires. However it would do well to be aware when the wave turns on a downward slope.
The valley that corresponds to the peak. There is so much hidden treasure here. This is the period of introspection, the time when we allow ourselves to receive from the universe new inspiration. In the body it feels like we are being guided to slow down. We do more sleeping and consequently more dreaming. We feel like we need less stimulation, we’re feeling the need for silence. We are being guided to rest our physical senses and open the inner gateways to our higher wisdom, to visualise new desires, new ideas and new ways of being. Because when we deliberately close our physical eyes and ears, our inner psychic senses switch on and we open ourselves to seeing and hearing our guides, as well as messages from our higher self.
So let’s stop judging this “slump” in activity as a slack period where nothing is happening. Alone time is a marvellous gift. Your inner life is a hive of activity. This is a time of renewal, a time of meditation, a time of dreaming multiple possible realities, a releasing of the old forms and a reimagining of the next part of our journey. This is also a good time to explore your shadow self. Become more familiar and perhaps glean something from this new friend.
Then once the energy of inspiration starts to take form, you can start to attach words, colours and structure. And the next phase of creation will naturally place you on the ascending part of the wave again. And so it is that we as energetic beings also flow as waves. Pulsing in and pulsing out.
