Move Out Into the World
Spring is a time for adventure—all that new sprouting energy encourages us to move out into the world.
A few springs ago, my husband and I took an adventure to Guatemala. We spent a couple of days in the Peten—the Mayan region in the northern section of the country.
While there in the heart of the rainforest, we visited the Mayan ruins at Tikal.
Now you might think that with my sensitivity to energy, hanging out on the land where tens of thousands of people mysteriously died/were slaughtered was a traumatic experience.
And I’m sure it would have been, if I’d chosen to be open to those vibrations.
I often work with fellow sensitives who go through life being battered by the energies of the places and people around them.
“It does not have to be this way,” I tell them as I show them how to ground and center themselves, and seal their auras against unwanted energies.
Of course, some people get addicted to the drama of feeling many energies. And others feel the need to serve by running these energies through their bodies to cleanse them. I suggest that neither of these approaches is ideal.
Instead, at Tikal, I chose to embrace and enjoy the energies of the rainforest—the huge trees growing among and overtaking the pyramids, the ortolans weaving their spherical nests in the trees in the grand courtyard, the toucans and parrots flashing in the trees.
I marveled at the buildings the humans had made, practiced walking like a high priestess up the steep stairs to the great pyramid, and listened raptly to the stories our guide Manuel told us about visiting the temples decades before when it was evem more overgrown, before the government started cleaning it out as a tourist destination.
Often in a new spot I will tune in and ask if there’s any work I can do to serve that piece of earth. At Tikal, my job was to spread the energy of awe and wonder at the human and natural world, at the resilience and diversity of life. I did not need to get caught up in the dramas of long-lost people.
If you are planning to visit an ancient site, and want to know how to prepare yourself for a good experience, give me a call.
