When the Sun, Sol, Soul, goes into stasis, stillness, stops; Solstice…
This is probably the best example of what it feels like to hold space for a part of you.
When you go still, when you stop all vibrations coming from you, when you stop generating any noise; in that moment, you can hear and feel and see all the noise, vibrations and sounds that are around you, or ‘in your field’ without being them.
You are holding still space.
What’s cool about this, is that a higher self version of you, which YOU also ARE, is the one that can go still. This higher self you then holds the space for the parts of you that can’t go still in that moment.
You don’t have to stop the noise. You just need to be willing to stop to hear the noise.
In the stillness, hear and feel all the nuances of the waveform sounds coming at you. A jackhammer from construction or birdsong in a nearby tree – go into it. What’s under the noise? What is there to feel? Feel your emotional landscape in the same way.
Then notice in the stillness, what moves or happens as a result of your alchemical stillness. What shifts in your presence as you let go of consciously holding still space and return to the focus of tasks or goals?
Imagine that. Things happening in the stillness, and as a result of the stillness! Of course it is, because even complete stillness is sourced in love, which isn’t still or passive in any way.
Love is in hot pursuit of you, and not in any ambivalent ‘I’ll be here when you are’ kind of stance towards you. Love is aching to connect with you, heart, soul and body.
Stillness is the voice and vibration of love that you can enter as your birthright, as often as you wish, where you can stay for as long as you like.
Happy SOLSTICE day!
