My Biggest lesson from 2018 – Reclaiming one’s sense of agency

If you had a tough time this year, could it be that you are letting go of the same beast that I’ve been wresting this past year? This is a beast that is easy to see in others. Virtually impossible to see in oneself. This ia about reclaiming your power and your agency and letting go of “Poor me, this isn’t fair!”
“life happens for you, not to you.”

When you aren't fully present

Small reminder to be more present

2018 was the “year of the fire” for me. A year ago my house nearly burnt down and this whole year stretched out into one long painful wrestle with authorities who felt I had been negligent for not checking what kind of light bulbs a professional Swiss electrical team had installed in my cupboards. It was incredibly tough going, particularly with the language barrier. I felt deeply and wrongly judged, but today I feel blessed for all that happened because in the process I was able to see and let go of a shadow I may never have seen otherwise. The entire year was full of master teachers. From my perspective, it felt like I was being continuously regressed to earlier developmental stages, each event giving me another taste of the enormous cost of “poor me this isn’t fair!”

I probably would not have been able to see this, and cut myself free, had it not been for researching my ancestors, prior training thanks to a course I had hosted, plus mentors and brutally honest friends. This helped me see that much of what was going on wasn’t about now at all. It wasn’t even about early childhood, but something far older. The evolution of Self, of family and our human lineage.

Some days after arguing with the building insurance and blaming them for blaming me, I would have to spend an entire day walking in the forest to get my power back. And then the next day I’d be back to square one. Each time giving me another opportunity to see the beast I was feeding.

Incredible also to witness how divinely orchestrated everything is that happens to each of us. That “life happens for you, not to you.” It is just such a divinely delicious cosmic joke: how every person who shows up in your life is a perfect mirror teaching you something profound. And how important it is to suspend judgement and be fully present with whatever is arising. All feelings are fuel. But can we learn how to shift gears and entrain a more joyful speed without our older survival brain throwing a spanner in the works? This is how we reclaim our power. Not with a whimper but a whoopee!

If you would like me to write about this story in more detail in future leave a note below and I’ll do so. There are so many lessons on so many levels it could fill a book to cover everything. I hope to be able to share and teach what I learnt.

Fog dancing

IMG_3762 fog lineI live mostly above the fog line, but sometimes find myself deep in it. It’s a continual dance. Between clarity and uncertainty, conviction and self doubt.

Have you noticed? This is what happens whenever you get to the top of any ladder. We arrive back at “same old, same old”. A nagging sense of recognition. Non sense. Just a deep knowing that I’ve been here before. The recognition that the ladder leads nowhere. Yet everywhere.

Soft clouds that can’t be walked across with a heavy heart or lead boots. It takes play and delight instead of many balloons and lots of hot air to walk above the clouds.

How we can make a difference

Global healing through individual and collective intention.
A simple way for us each to take responsibility for the energy we are feeding into the collective field.

Why reach out? Exercise your Expelliarmus

ExpelliarmusFor many years we had a very special cat in our home. He looked like an ordinary cat but actually he was more like a cross between a wizard and an angel. His real name was “Expelliarmus” but most people only knew him as “Pelly”.

How did he get such name?

When my son was about four I asked him if he would like a brother or sister and he replied, “No, I’d rather have a cat!” We were in the middle of renovations at the time, running backwards and forwards between two properties so the cat was put on hold. A few years later his father and I separated and I remembered my cat promise. Our kitten hunt led us to a nearby farmstead where a cute little grey tiger bounced towards my son while the rest of the litter ran into hiding. It was love at first sight. He may not have been the best looking of the litter but he had a lot of character and his face was totally unique. He had an exquisite orange tint to his nose and cheeks, as if he had dipped his face into a bowl of orange juice. Jules named the kitten “Expelliarmus” after a Harry Potter spell.

In the Potter world, Expelliarmus is a disarming charm, used for removing a weapon or wand from one’s opponent’s hand. And “disarming charm” is exactly what Pelly had; a charming way of reaching out to others that won the hearts of everyone he met.

Besides catching mice and doing whatever cats do (I’d hate to know), he would would pop in and visit all our neighbours to see how they were doing. He really showed them he cared. It wasn’t “cupboard love”, more like “unconditional love” which he spread very generously. He was the only cat I’ve ever met who could walk into any house in the street and receive a warm welcome whether there were other cats around or not. Even grumpy or normally unfriendly people loved him and felt honoured when he dropped in.

He was primarily an outdoors cat, sometimes disappearing for days, no-one knew where to, but eventually he’d return. One of his favourite activities was to go walking on the hill behind our house with an old neighbour who had plenty of time. (That’s the unfortunate thing about humans, as we grow up our territory expands exponentially compared to a cat’s territory and we are less and less around for old friends.) Recently the old man’s wife died and Pelly started spending more and more time with him, sitting on the old man’s lap or chest to keep him company.

Then one day Pelly didn’t come home for days. I knew he was helping our old neighbour recover from grief so let it be. Still, each day I thought to myself I need to go and check up on them but didn’t. Instead, I thought if anything happened I would be the first to hear. A few days later the old man came to tell me that Pelly had died. He had jumped through the cat door of a neighbour’s house while they were on holiday and for some unknown reason had not come back out. We are not sure if he died suddenly or if he was was unable to reach out and no-one came looking for him.

Throughout his life and even in death, Pelly taught us about the importance of caring for others by reaching out. We always think people will call us when they really need us but actually this seldom happens. Sometimes they just can’t, for various reasons. Pride, shame, feelings of unworthiness, illness, injury or even depression sets in and disables their capacity to reach out. It is up to us, like Pelly, to reach out and connect while we can; check up on our neighbours and old friends instead of waiting for them to come to us. Find out how things really are for them, and, instead of giving them our own heavy bags to carry, reach out and lighten their load a few paces to remind them of the beauty and wonder of life all around them. Also, like Pelly, it’s the people who you think are fine or better off than you that really need you to reach out, because everyone assumes they don’t need it when actually that is seldom the case. Take Robin Williams for example.

We live in a global village. Who can you reach out to today? Who comes to mind and you think “I’ll do it later” and then don’t? I wish I could tell you this story was inspired by Pelly’s life rather than his death. But that wouldn’t be true.
I’ve put this picture above of Pelly in our kitchen to remind myself and my son to “Exercise our Expelliarmus” – by reaching out to at least two people per day.

How about you? Are you exercising your Expelliarmus? Reaching out and connecting with others is what life is really about.

Some of the issues touched on in this call.
Why is courage not enough?
Are we trying to break through walls that don’t actually exist?
What is safety and trust and how do we develop this?
