A Lighter Way

Over the last few years, and especially leading up to 2012 and the aftermath of 2013, I felt a lot of heavier, more serious energies. Given the importance 2012 had for many, and the relief of still being alive in 2013 for some (!), we are now at a point of creation again.  The ending of one era has given way (finally) to another.  And just what does that era entail?

In my own being, I feel the sense of enormous possibility and release of old ways and expectations. In relationships, work content, and intention/purpose – there is a sense of “lightening up the load”.  What was once heavy and dense, having to be worked through and released, is now lifting and leaving a great sense of air, expectancy, miracles and surprise.  

Like a jet airliner that has been landed too long (and perhaps needed extensive de-icing after a long winter!), we are now ready for lift off!  The runway feels a little bumpy, but once we reach the air it is smooth, crisp and clear.  And the sun is shining enormously bright…

But… Where are we going?

Who knows!  The land of possibility –  perhaps a multi-stop pop into the skies of life, gaining an aerial view of everything, and touching down where it feels warm and bright.  Can you relate?

Aaaahhh…  the sense of wonder. The magical nature of life unfolds.  Promises once made in a sleepless night begin to realize themselves magically without any effort or dense forethought.  Things just float along.  There is happiness and a song…

I feel this in the air as travel – unexpected trips, surprising new relationships, the miraculous impact of uplifting sounds and rousing music, dancing and singing as I wake up in the morning, greeting the day with more than a somber and “mercurious” meditation, but instead a delightful 2-step or highlander foray, as my feet gleefully pound the floorboards (my Irish/Scottish roots are showing!)…

I can’t get enough. Though I still mourn yesterday at times, and have my odd bad day – I sometimes get delayed (like an unwanted stop-over that never seems to end as your true destination awaits). But there is still the knowing that more is on the way. Patience, love and understanding keep me safe until I am back on the sky highway again.

This is where I am.  Turbulence, rain, shower – sure, they drop in.  But the rising sun delights me, and the whimsical air has my name on it. Krista is coming!  There is a sea of doves rushing in, and ancient places to go with a lighter heart and new mind. My steps are lighter.  My voice less rigid and somber.  A new way is slowly unfolding, and perhaps a new miraculous and enchanting era that is not mine, but shared.  

I look forward to this new time.  God knows, we have worked hard for it – mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually.  Maybe it’s time to let go and walk (or fly with the angels) a lighter way.  

A way that has been calling us all along.

Amen!
