I am a Healer, Psychologist, educator and Sound Therapist with an avid interest in consciousness and transpersonal experiences. Oh and did I mention Astrology?
I was contemplating avoidance as a totally ingrained practice that we all seem to have mastered above and beyond its true value! Indeed it is the cause of so much lack and loss in life. Not daring to go beyond the narrow confines of the familiar, we miss out on so many opportunities - people and events that could rapidly transform us and accelerate our personal growth and evolution.
It seemed to me that the word 'avoidance' expresses:
"a dance we do around a void created
in order to ignore the calling of our hearts to open"
We avoid things that we do not wish to face up to. The longer we practice avoidance the harder it is to see the situation clearly or dream up a solution, let alone gain the strength to physically carry out the necessary actions. The impetus to act is smoothered by our fears. Yet once we muster the courage to overcome our self doubts we automatically empower ourselves. The world is changed by our endeavours and life takes on new meaning. We also inspire others in the course of our day by avoiding avoidance!
Abundance (generally defined as plentiful, possessing more than sufficient) on the other hand is a very different beast in today's climate. Many seem to be fired by a desire to grasp what they can from others, eagerly clutching at so called wealth and material possessions as a form of security. Presently we seem to have
"a dance created around celebrating enough personal 'dough' in one's life,
to have your bun/cake and eat it!"
At least this would be the interpretation in a world dominated by financial concerns and constraints. Whilst we are caught in this sticky web of deceit and lies by a system that only appears to serve the 'bun dancers' right now, things are changing.
"Something's afoot" said the reflexologist, and rightly so. Many people are on the move across the globe; dancing to a different tune, the drum beat is getting louder. The feet on the street are growing in numbers as ever more corruption and betrayal comes to light. Those propping up the old paradigms and status quo which disempowers the many can no longer practice avoidance of the issues raised by a closed heart and are being questioned about the source of their personal abundance.
I believe there is a new age dawning in which abundance we can all share in is the norm, a world where avoidance will no longer be the counterpart to this beautifully choreographed life we are all born to live.
