Have you ever found yourself in the middle of writing a Creation Exercise and you drifted away, or you were distracted by something, or caught yourself day dreaming, only to bring yourself back and get yourself back into writing the Creation Exercise? What do you think had you do that? Was it just some random distraction? Maybe you even went as far as wondering what was wrong with you because you can’t stay focused…… What if….. What if it was Creation talking to you and you just ignored it?
We are so trained to think in logic and everything has to follow a sequential mental order. We have a tendency to think, ‘how can this possibly be related to what I am writing’ – and then you delete it from your reality. How many times have we been told to stop day dreaming and get back to reality? We have been trained to be disconnected from that which created us, our direct link, and how ‘It’ communicates with us. We have forgotten how to include the ways our systems communicate with forces larger than ourselves as a part of our reality.
Lately when I have found myself being ‘randomly distracted’ in the middle of an exercise, I have started to include it. I look at what I was present to, or what was my daydreaming about, or what my thoughts were, and incorporate that into whatever Creation Exercise I am doing. I have started to no longer think that these are random distractions, rather they are a form of communication from Creation.
The other day I was writing an observing on a craving. I had been feeling ‘out of sorts’ the last 24 hours. I had even gone so far as to put off writing the observing in hopes that I could be a little more upbeat. It so happened that the craving I was observing was on ‘full spectrum response’. I was observing that the full spectrum response was being able to feel all feelings not just the ones we label as being good feeling one. I was at my OO: of my first recursion when I found myself out of nowhere distracted and started playing with the shadows my hands were making in the sunlight on my wall. So it became my OO: and as I was typing it I started to laugh. Now logically, do I know exactly how it was related? Not really. All I know is that it was another emotion that I got to feel as I played with life and it seemed to take me out of my heaviness and enjoy a moment in life. I got to enjoy a full spectrum of feelings.
We are not used to how our systems were designed to speak to Creation. We are in an exploration and we are not all like. Each of us have our own unique way of communicating with those forces larger than ourselves. Why do you feel one way when you start a Creation Exercise and another way by the end of the exercise? What if, those thoughts that randomly distracted you were really you thinking your own thoughts, not thoughts from the broken system you were born into that you are so used to thinking? The problem is this way of communication is so unfamiliar to us that we brush them aside and we don’t include it. What if… this is the magic we all want in our lives, the aliveness that seems to have gotten lost. What if we are restoring our communication, and our direct link with that which created us?
So stop, and take a moment, when you think you have been distracted in the middle of writing your Creation Exercise and see what you are present to, to what you are daydreaming about, or what thoughts that have shown up out of nowhere, and see if it is really a different way of being informed. Put some magic back into your life and play, play with life. Start including more.
