“This well just did not want to be drilled”¦it was like we were messing with Mother Nature…” Statement from a worker on the Deepwater Horizon rig about the obstructions encountered from the beginning of the operation.
The earth has consciousness. It is a sentient being. It feels what is done to it and it reacts. That vast information-energy-consciousness field that gives rise to us as humans gives rise to the stars, suns, planets and our very own earth. The earth has its blueprint. The ordering forces are always at work to sustain the life of the earth, to return it to balance, to bring order, balance, harmony and flow.
When we practice energy medicine we know that when the body is out of balance it will seek to restore its balance, and often that attempt will look like illness. Through accumulated experience, through accumulated karma, illness will develop; obstructions to the flow of healthy information from Source will develop. The earth is now a body out of balance. It has its own karma, its own accumulated experience, which includes centuries of abuse at this point. Greed, anger and ignorance are the forces that block the information of order, balance, harmony and flow, whether it is within our own minds, or played out at a global level. From this perspective the tidal waves, the earthquakes, the volcanic eruptions and the oil spill are not isolated phenomena. The energies of order, balance, harmony and flow are responding to the obstructions, blockages, disorder, imbalance and conflict present in the earth’s field.
These events are indications that the earth’s blueprint is at work; that the earth is deeply connected to the information of order, balance, harmony and flow, and it is not in the nature of those forces to tolerate the abuse the earth continues to receive from us human beings. The body has guardian energies. So does the earth, and the guardian energies of the earth are doing their work. The earth will be around for millions of years to come. It has the power to heal itself. The cycle of life will continue, but the question is: will human beings choose to participate in that cycle of renewal, transformation, rebirth that is the activity of the blueprint? Or will we destroy ourselves?
What I understand when I tune into that information of Source is obvious to those with eyes to see and ears to hear. It’s nothing we all don’t know already, except for all those who don’t seem to know it. All these events, with the loss of human life, plant life, animal life, the life of the ocean itself, are saying to us: You have to STOP. You have to radically redefine what human life is about, or there will be no more life as you have known it on the earth.
What does it mean to “Stop?” I can’t even imagine. I have to believe that bringing in that information of Source in healing work, in my personal life, and in every way possible is the best thing I can do for the earth right now. I feel this especially deeply in relation to the oil spill. This event has helped me realize how the landscapes of our childhood are mapped in our body-minds. I grew up in the Florida Panhandle and days at “the coast” are woven into my memory body. I can remember the feel of the sand under my feet and the endless miles of shallow, warm, clear water. You could wade out into it forever, and you could see every grain of sand under the surface. It was that clear. I bring that map to my meditation daily.
I believe profoundly that what I do to the web I do to myself, and what I do for myself I do for the web. That means every time I work with the Diamond Points, I am making that connection to the energies of order, balance, harmony and flow not only for myself but also for the earth. And every time I invoke the guardian energies of the body, I am also invoking the guardian energies of the earth.
Next week: a SourcePoint meditation with the Guardian Energies of the Earth.
