“I wish it need not have happened in my time” said Frodo. “So do I”, said Gandalf, “and so all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us”J.R,R. Tolkien
I find myself during this time of the Pandemic and Stay-at-Home policies alternating between complete vegetation, binging on old TV series, working at home on my website, cleaning my closet, spending too much time on FaceBook, and every once in a while sitting quietly with my thoughts and feelings. When I do go just a little deeper, I feel the chaotic emotions surrounding our world today. In fact, that’s why binge TV watching may be a necessary distraction! But what can I really do to help? I can Hold Space.
Holding Space is the process of witnessing and validating someone else’s emotional state while simultaneously being present with your own.” It’s a process of giving your heart, letting go of control and offering another unconditional support. Join me in this very unique moment in history to hold space for others.
Hold Space for those who are ill, and for their families going through the torture of not knowing whether a loved one will live or die. The thoughts that come can be some of the worst in the world. They alternate between optimism of recovery and sadness of possible death. The family trying to picture life without him or her, the patient struggling to survive. Hold Space for them all.
Hold Space for those who fear financial ruin, either from lost wages or the loss of a business. Those who are doing everything they can to stay in business while the government has closed their doors. Hold Space for them.
Hold Space for the workers who are keeping our country going- from health care to WalMart. Hold Space for them all.
Holding Space is setting an Energetic Field to initiate the Shift of Consciousness for which we have been waiting. We are the Ones we have been Waiting For, and its our time to emerge. All things need Space in which to form. In Polarity Therapy, Space (the Ether element) comes first, out of which the elements of Air, Fire, Water, and Earth form. Today, right now, we hold the space for a new world to form. We acknowledge the greed, anger and fear while allowing generosity, love and faith to unfold in all beings. We hold the space for each other. And it is enough for now, May you live each moment of this new Now to its fullest.
May you hold Space for your Life to unfold.
May you hold space for all Beings.
May all Beings hold Space for you.
