Abundance is the energetic flow at this time of year. It's the season of the harvest, a good thing, yes? Yes. And ... a lot of work! It's not just me running around like crazy, now that the weather has cooled. It's not just me working hard, working overtime, trying to complete impossibly long to-do lists every day.
The harvest is good work, necessary work that guarantees safe passage through the winter. So all these endeavors I'm currently engaged in - the matting and framing of photos, the scurrying around to various appointments and meetings, the design of my web page and business card - are exactly what I want to be doing. All the things I'm so busy with right now lead to good things and good situations. I love it, and ... I'm not keeping up the pace I'd like to. Isn't that always the case during the harvest? How does anyone get ALL the crops in just at the perfect moment of ripeness?
My room is a disaster area because there's not enough space for all these mats and frames and the cutting board and all the plastic bags stuffed with the detritus of framing, not to mention the pics scattered everywhere, the little plastic bags for unframed but matted pics. I don't have time anyway to keep my room really clean, a stressful situation since the process of cleaning as well as the clear surfaces and shiny floors, etc. when I'm finished, are foundational components of my Plan to Stay Sane.
Stressful, too, is all the brain power I'm investing into my work with Reiki, an energy that I've been completely humbled by every day since I became a Reiki master. Both the Reiki sessions I'm doing with clients as well as the teaching I'm engaged in, require a combination of discipline and attention - yet complete and utter surrender to the greater power, however you care to see it. How can anyone do both at the same time? Reiki mastery is a sharp learning curve.
I like to goof around, sit around and do nothing, think about nothing. I like my Law and Order reruns. I like long rambling conversations with friends and long rambling walks with my dog. I like to cook and go out for lunch, I like to stare into space for an hour at a time. Really, I do.
But all that laziness will have to wait until late fall, by which time it'll be the hideous holiday season again. Yikes. This year's harvest is so plentiful, so abundant, I am overwhelmed.
And grateful! Thank you oh mysterious, generous gods of the Harvest! Thank you!!
