Are You in the Practice of Becoming? by Victoria McMahon
What does ‘practice’ evoke in you?
A specific feeling….excitement….dread….curiosity?
A body response of contraction or tension ….heaviness?
Maybe it is a tingling in the hands/legs? Or even butterflies in your solar plexus area?
Pause and listen….
How about the word ‘becoming’?
Is it about the mystery or curiously not knowing that arises or is it feelings of confusion…even yet, thoughts popping in about making plans or setting goals.
How do these thoughts connect with your body response to the word?
You may not really give it that much attention in the daily routine of life. And in the typical western culture of the holiday season, you may be so wrapped up in ‘to do’s’ that the considering of who you are right now and who you are becoming is overlooked at best.
In moving towards the close of 2022, I am struck by words like reflections, endings, integration, and deepening coming more into the forefront of conversation with others. In the inner dialogue and external acknowledging, I invite you into taking stock of what you are moving with and towards as 2023 draws nearer.
In the Language of Consciousness Institute December 1st newsletter, Elektra shared her observations of the year of our Team journey. What we are curious about and interested in discovering with you is in direct relationship with our group practice in Becoming.
For all of us, the timing of now is perfectly designed for steeping in
and Observing Being.
These Templates offer you reflection and integration. They become the steps towards individually deepening in longing to be your unique Becoming.
Do you have a practice of being intentional in your Becoming?
Can you voice the commitment you create on behalf of you…others?
If not, is having a practice for Becoming inviting, even intriguing? Can you imagine for a moment what you might crave to include?
For me, the practice of Becoming has specific elements:
- Moving Sentiently
- Opening up into Self
These elements may become your foundation for creating a practice…living the exploration. Allow these elements to support you in discovering the language of your body, your emotional being, your mental mind; thus supporting you in the practice of Becoming?
Do you experience your body communicating…languaging its craving for you?. Offering a longing of Becoming?
Is it in the listening of sensation….
the tracking of tension/ relaxation…
the developing of your registers of sensory knowing?
Do you hold yourself more compassionately…and how do you feel that occurring in you?
Are you fully present in your emotional being?
Is this feeling of presence in emotion occurring in a way that you are able to be with and move as the observer of the emotion rising?
This is a beginning inquiry into the ‘what and how’ of registering you as a Sentient Being…a being in the state of Becoming.
Consider the most recent time of feeling overwhelmed, either in a state of elation or full despair…were you able to hold in your full capacity to be in the experience of Self in ‘whole system response’?
Allow me to share an example of feeling overwhelmed….in a state of pure elation. While on a shared field journey in Glastonbury, U.K., we were in an experience in relationship with water and the sacred Chalice Well. As I entered the garden area, I experienced a deep pulsing energy in the body and felt the physical pull of my being towards two yew trees that felt to be guardians of the Well. My gaze lifted and I absorbed myself in connection with the beauty of the trees while my body was being drawn towards these two guardian trees. I mentally realized I was in body and emotion languaging and thoughts came through to hand off my belongings to another in the field so I could be with what was sentiently rising in body and emotion. Within a brief time, I found myself face down on Earth…feeling the pulsing of the body connecting with the pulsing roots of the tree, extending its energy to connect with me! Tears began to stream out…body heaving and feeling full elation upon this being. My capacity to be fully present was overwhelming elation and then some aspect of me put the brakes on it! In that moment, I had the awareness of stopping the Self from being her fullness in Becoming. The whole system response was present and yet not sustained and maintained to full embodiment of Self in relationship with All.
This experience is a powerful experience that in-forms continued commitment to practice in Becoming.
Is there an experience for you that in-forms you of your capacity to be fully present in body, emotion, mental mind being your Becoming?
Consider as well:
- Is your thought language in relationship ‘to what you craving Becoming’?
- Are your thoughts congruent with your emotional and physical observation of experiences and events?
- Do you have opinions about what is cycling through your daily experience?
- Do you notice whether you move away from or towards exploration of Becoming?
- Are you conscious and present in the experience?
Are you in a distinct practice that invites you into this state of Becoming? Or, are you ready to create your practice of Becoming?
As the Language of Consciousness Institute is in its exploration of Becoming, and each one of us is exploring in our practice of Becoming, we invite you into a practice of Becoming with us!
The Emergence and Embodiment and Immersion Series are part of the Language of Consciousness Institute’s offerings to you in support of creating your practice of Becoming.
Pause and breathe now…
Are you pondering….are you seeing a picture in your mind?
If you participated in Emergence and Embodiment and/or Immersing Ourselves in What is Rising: Co-Creating New Realities event(s), how have these experiences opened you up into discovering who and what you are in and through the collective field?
How does the practice of Template writing expand this discovery?
Does the practice of Moving Sentiently deepen your access to discovery…individual and/or collective?
As this year draws to a close, I invite you into the pondering of what it might look like for you to step into your Being Becoming. What would A Year of Practice in Becoming look like for you? What would you crave it to include?
- Are you longing for practices that open the Becoming of Body Sentience, Emotional Sentience, and Mental Mind Sentience? Are you craving regular practice to embody You as a Template of Being?
- Do you want your daily experience to include a relationship with Time that nourishes you in the fullness of who and what you are?
This is your invitation….
Create your practice for 2023!
Join me…join the Team of the Language of Consciousness Institute…
