I recently enjoyed a singing bowl treatment. If you’ve never had one, you wouldn’t believe what it can do to your body and soul. Before the treatment, we always talk about whether I have any specific requests regarding the outcome. I usually tell her to just do what she feels is necessary. I want to keep my head out of it and let happen what needs to happen. But last time, I wanted her to consistently follow up on any blocks she finds. I told her that I am so tired of a reflexive resistance arising in me when it comes to things that are ridiculous and that lock me up inside. This automatic resistance keeps me from expanding, and I’m so tired of working against it, which only causes more resistance. I said I wanted to be transparent and permeable. After the treatment (which was very effective), she said, resistance is not necessarily a bad thing but rather an intuitive reaction to not letting it all in. That got me thinking.
Indeed, we don’t have to accept everything that is thrown at us. We need to be steadfast within ourselves to say stop and no when something doesn’t feel right. But sometimes we don’t have a choice. We have commitments at work or in our personal lives that require us to step out of our comfort zone. There is life that happens around us and confronts us with uncomfortable situations. There are people we cannot simply turn away from when we feel offended or provoked. If we are not steadfast within ourselves, then such situations can cause resistance on the one hand and resignation at the same time because we have to cope without wanting to. So we have to find solutions within ourselves to deal with it without being weakened or even breaking down because of it.
Being permeable gives me the ability to accept the challenges, to feel the feelings, but at the same time not hold them in or build a wall in front of which they pile up. I just let them pass through. It means accepting what is happening, not denying it, not running away, not closing my eyes, not feeling sorry for myself, not feeling paralyzed, helpless, or unfairly treated. It builds clear self-love and supports a development of observing rather than judging or condemning. When this happens, I don’t get attached to what’s happening while at the same time I am just dealing with it. I no longer take things personally because I don’t identify with what is happening around me.
I told her that, and she said that it would make a lot of sense to her. Then she told me something very interesting. She said that at the end of the treatment, she was led to create a net over me that keeps what belongs to me inside and lets go of what does not belong. This confirms to me that we are both in tune with our souls and a higher guidance
Become permeable and be your own dreamcatcher.
