A different kind of daily message today…
I was talking to a dear friend last week and she mentioned how difficult it is to be on this side of the veil where you can’t see everything that is going on. As soon as she said that, Gabriel dropped this image into my awareness. It was a reminder of the wooden box they would place over your hands in my high school typing class if you wouldn’t stop looking at the keys.
At first it was really awkward not being able to see anything. You had to work by feel, and by remembering the layout of the keyboard. It was slow and clumsy and awkward at first, but bit by bit you became more comfortable trusting in your ability to know where the keys were and how there were even little bumps on certain keys you could feel to help you orient yourself.
And before you knew it you became better and better at navigating by feel until it became automatic and you didn’t need to think about it at all. In fact, not relying on your eyes enhanced your ability to feel and know, which ultimately made you a far more better typist than when you were relying on your eyes alone.
I think this sums up this phase of our enlightenment journey. When we don’t have the use of one sense, all others become enhanced. Any diminished sense always serves the purpose of strengthening the others.
Being in a prolonged state of not knowing during this transformative year of 2020 has made us better develop our feeling skills, and connect with our inner knowing. Once we have become more comfortable in relying on our feeling and knowing, not being able to see where we are going will no longer serve a purpose, and our ability to navigate through all senses will return, in a new, more balanced way. ~A combination of Shelley and Gabriel. :)
