“As far as co-creating with the Universe, what do I need to do to feel more active versus reactive with my energy?” This was basically the question I emailed to my friend and former esoterics teacher, Janae, about whom I blogged a couple of weeks ago. We have years and years of this kind of Q & A, back and forth, forth and back; I’d have never-ending post topics if I printed them all out!
I asked this because I was coming off of quite a stretch of blah energy that had felt very passive. I know that slow downs like this are part and parcel of our soul growth patterns, and I did indulge myself, but I really sensed that it was time to push through and do something. The seeds (for whatever) had been germinating long enough; I was ready for them to sprout.
Janae offered this answer: “Everything begins with us…everything begins with a statement of purpose.” I needed to hear this because I had become a bit overwhelmed in my summer-long underwhelm. Though I had not consciously started this cycle, my mission was to get on board with it – and the Universe knew that I would eventually catch on.
Having a purpose, stating an intention, is the magic of the Universe and the fodder of co-creation. Sometimes it feels like we’re left in the dark, as in my case above. However, even though I was fairly clueless about the what, I still knew that something was happening. My hang up is that I’ve always been a little impatient about the why, which ends up clouding the view.
What I forgot to do was trust in this side of the process. It’s very different, of course, when I’m directing the energy, because I’m already in on the plan. But just because I didn’t understand this purpose, it didn’t mean there wasn’t one. In the future, when something starts without my conscious awareness, I’m going to be more patient and see how I can help. Co-creation isn’t one-sided; it takes two to tango.
