In case you didn’t get a chance to read it, my last post was about how to follow intuition through the storms of life. Not only does this help us find peace in the presence of fear, it also helps us act peacefully and powerfully in the face of doubt and uncertainty.
There were moments when Hurricane Irma rattled my fears, mostly before she did her crazy dance over Central Florida. The news spoke of possible widespread destruction and loss of life. In contrast, my inner guidance told me that while it would be messy, we would clean up and rebuild quickly. So, instead of trying to control outcomes by worrying and envisioning the worst, I took a deep breath and leaned into the experience. This week I’ve been so grateful for how fast things are getting back to “normal” and cleaned up around town. I am also feeling very…. humble.
As I practice gratitude for still having power and minimal damage to my community, residents of the Florida Keys are coming to terms with the total destruction of their homes and towns. An earthquake-rattled Mexico experienced yet another major quake less than two weeks later. Wildfires still burn across the western U.S. and Hurricane Maria is decimating even more island communities as I write this. Battles are still being fought in war-torn nations and countless tragedies we don’t even hear about are happening every minute of every day throughout our world.
As grateful as I feel for my current reality, I have been walking with a sense of humility that comes only in times of great turmoil, challenge and loss. These things could visit any of us, at any time. Life has a way of revealing our wisdom to us through the way we deal with a shape-shifting reality; whether that be traumatic loss of a loved one, home or even a way of life. The idealist in me wishes that such struggles would never come to any of us. Yet I have seen many such stormy moments myself and know that without them, I would never have learned a critical lesson that would connect my conscious mind more deeply to the power of my spirit.
That lesson is about allowing a deep sense of humility to reign over any illusion of control we have about life. This illusion of control comes in many forms. It can be overt, like a tyrant attempting to control others. It can also show itself as the part of us that feels entitled to our comforts, demanding anything that will numb us to the pain that comes with being present to our own grief. Another way it can show up is by urging us to play small and act as if we “don’t know” what we know within – because we think its easier for other people to interact with unconscious patterns than it is to be present with someone who is aware of their intuitive truth.
Thing is… Humility allows life to be as it is so that spiritual energy can flood in to heal and restore that which has been wounded. When you allow your conscious mind to become humbled by your own spiritual power, whether that be a strong intuition, connection to the spirit world, energetic healing ability or even just holding the frequency of light to balance the darkness and chaos of the world… it is then when you are truly present and truly powerful. Clever tricks of the mind are nice. Strength of the body is helpful. The comfort of wealth is a blessing. But without strength of the spirit, true power will always escape us.
