We talk a lot about feeling calm and grounded. How about when your center of gravity is off? What’s that like for you?
I rode my bike a couple miles to the grocery store to pick up a few things and brought a backpack to carry it all back home. Of course I had too much for the backpack and had to load up my two handlebars with bags of groceries too.
My center of gravity was WAY OFF. Today I felt 5 years old again. Wobbling around with my center of gravity no where to be found. Stopping when people needed to pass me and hyper focused on the path ahead.
How symbolic this is for real life. When cancer knocks on the strong athlete’s door or Lyme & PANDAS snatch a child from it’s mother’s arms.
Where is your center of gravity then?
When life rolls in like a dark howling storm, threatening to destroy our crops and livelihood, our home and loved ones. When we feel helpless to the gods and at the mercy of the path unknown.
Where is your center of gravity?
During these times of helplessness and distress, we ride forward with awareness and caution. Watching the road ahead. Butt IN the saddle. Veering off to the right when the ride gets too tricky.
We need awareness for what we need to feel safe and nurtured (yes, I said nurtured. It’s the opposite of neglecting ourselves) during these hard hard times.
We need caution to use our third eye, our place of wisdom to help us see when the road gets too dark.
We remember what grounds us. What keeps us steady and DO IT.
We allow ourselves to emulate the energy or the DRAGONFLY (another post on the soul lessons of this creature to come) and we learn to change directions in the moment, without warning.
When is your center of gravity off? Do you notice? Becoming aware of what this feels like in you is the first step and determining what you need comes next.
