Honesty of Spirit

This weekend I have been reminded deeply, down to the very bones of my ancestors, the importance of honest communication and negotiation. What an even more amazing world we would live in if we were more authentic, followed our hearts to the matter of things, and even more so followed our gut instincts.

As the wheel turns its face towards the decent, the movement from Water to Earth, we find the place in between…the mud, where the elements of water and earth unite.

Sometimes when we get stuck in our past roles, it’s like being in the mud, it’s hard to get out, it acts like a suction on the soles of our feet. In this mud our vision can be blurred, instead of the honesty required we may play out the role of our inner hurt child, pretend, hide, maybe even lie and create chaos, instead of growing up, stepping out of the mud and saying exactly what we mean.

At Autumn we are shown a gift, all is maturing in nature around us, and so can we. We can be adult enough to speak our minds, face to face to others. If we miss this moment, like the fruits, if not harvested, they rot, and so does a part of us.

This is a time when you can embrace the intimacy that you can explore with another heart to heart, take a risk, or be forever held at arms distance from your own truth.

If you are in the mud, if your journey has you in isolation or loneliness, now is that space, that moment of stepping forward into the importance and maturity of honest communication.

When we make a decision to step out of the mud, we clear our own vision, and we can release fear and worry, as the pathway ahead becomes so much lighter under foot.

Happy travels to honesty of spirit!
