Do you ever feel like life is one big paradox? You know, when something in your life seems self-contradictory or absurd but in reality expresses a possible truth. Or everything you are experiencing seems contrary to that which is right in front of you.
That is how I am feeling this week!
I am acutely aware of how much ‘energy’ has become a primary tool for navigating life for me these days. If something doesn’t “feel good”.., I don’t do (buy, choose, follow, accept, etc…) it. I am very comfortable with sensing energies and usually trust them more than my five physical senses.
This is kind of a big deal, right? It is kind of like saying.., “Oh, by the way… I have a super power!” And mind you, I don’t think I am the only one! Many of us, through our own life experience and journey, have come to trust the ‘vibes’ we get.
But for some of us, we cross a threshold where we trust the energies someone or something gives off more than anything else. More than how it looks, how it sounds… No matter how pretty something is packaged. We trust that which is unseen more than what is seen.
Recognizing that this is how I am navigating life these days can be a big damn deal for a practical guy like me! I like logic. I relate to pros and cons. I cherish the ability to sort, organize, prioritize and evaluate. I like hard and fast rules. Or at least I use to!
Sometimes I still revert to, or think that I will use these old ways of navigating. But when it comes right down to it.., these days I always trust my gut or intuition first.
So what happens when you are constantly using these super power to navigate life; yet, still have no idea where you are or where you are headed? Is it still a super power? When you know something doesn’t feel right, but don’t know what does; what do you call that?
It seems to me that we are giving up many old ways of navigating. Beliefs, rules, expectations, requirements, attitudes and even some of our skills and tools are changing on us. What felt right yesterday, no longer does. Where we thought we were headed, we’ve past or is no longer visible on our map. What motivates and inspires us has changed too.
I am still in that in-between place. I am crossing the threshold into something new. But still in the liminal. And perhaps this is the source of the paradox.
Knowing, sensing and feeling that the change I am creating in my life is already here. While at the same time not being able to actually see, hear, taste, touch or smell what is different or what that means. Maybe it is time to really lean into the energies of what is happening! Super Powers On!
