Today, I saw the movie “A Wrinkle in Time.” It was amazing to see so much of what we talk about in our work with the Creation Exercises on the screen, with the characters in the film using the same language! I was flabbergasted! As I sat in the theater feeling chills throughout my body, I could feel the power in the language on screen building. There were not many people there, but the field was palpable. I could feel the energy of the people watching the film, feel them soaking in the language, and the possibilities that the universe can really shake our hand! One word at a time, I felt the expansion happen in the theater. It was so powerful! This story that I loved as a young woman, and then later read in college again, came alive, and once again provided evidence that language and the energy in each word we speak or write has such power. When we combine powerful words into phrases, the powerful energy that comes back to us is such an incredible experience!
When I write the Creation Exercises, I feel tendrils of energy flowing and reconfiguring as the language is written…as each word is written, a new part of the equation is placed in synchronistic order, like the writing in Tom Riddle’s diary in Harry Potter’s “The Chamber of Secrets”. The writing appeared one word at a time. And as each word appeared on the page, the suspension built, but that meant the energy built with each word.
This is what I experience when writing the Creation Exercises. As each letter is formed, the alchemical configurations are imprinted. Then, as each recursion is laid down on the page, a spiraling effect happens. The energy expands, opening me up into such beautiful new vistas and landscapes of either possibility, or with such profound truth in what I am observing. As each day has progressed in the 90 day practice this time around, I have been able to steep in the alchemical equations of Creation’s messages. As each word is written and then read, sometimes over and over to edit, making certain the alchemical equations resonate, there is nothing else in my landscape. There is only the alchemical nature of the experience of being in unity and partnership with Creation. How wonderful life is when we can live from the perspective of wonder, being with another in the field, one word at a time, feeling our way resonantly in what gives us the magic of life?!
Why does it happen that we cannot sustain our attention to the exercises, becoming saturated at times? That is the human side. Yet as we break from writing a Creation Exercise, we can bask in the field of what we just wrote. And perhaps, the more we write the exercises, the more we can sustain our attention to be with Creation a few minutes more each time. I know now how much power is elicited with each letter, then each word. In our world we are hearing evidence of this in our youth speaking out, and changing the world…one word at a time! Could it be possible that because we have written the Creation Exercises, the formula sent tendrils out to impact our young people to speak out so eloquently? It is fun to consider isn’t it? We many never know all of the impact our writing practice has on the universe and humanity. Yet I think we do know that sending tendrils of energy out with our words will change humanity…one word at a time!
