Natural Law - March 2024





NATURAL LAW #161 - MARCH 2024


We are all self-governing

Let us call upon our ancestors, Elders and teachers - past and present,

To guide us in the way of the Heart

You are all my relations. All is One.



The Power of Presence is something many of us have heard about. Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now was read widely, the practice of meditation involves stilling the mind and taking a pause, and two of the five Reiki Principles, begin with the words, Just for today…


Being present is a thing. It requires us to stop and empty our minds. Focusing on our breath. Silent walking meditations. Laughter yoga. Time in nature. Creative fun, all assist us to be present.


Coming into presence can happen alone or with company.


It can be quiet and still, or fun and playful, like Laughter Yoga.


Being present involves a state of attunement and receptivity. 


Opening like a flower does to the sun, receiving the fullness of life, with curiosity, and without judgement. Being present to ourselves is like looking in the mirror and having courage to receive ourselves completely, without reservation. Our beauty, scars, mistakes, hopes and dreams.


When we choose to only accept our faults, or our best, we hide our humanness and we become vulnerable to destabilising at the whim of external factors. When we take ownership of all of our story, we anchor an inner-power that no one can touch. This requires discomfort - ours and others.


Presence is choosing to hear and own everything without judgement. It’s having uncomfortable conversations with love and respect. It’s receiving yourself and others without condition or judgement. Presence is knowing the difference between what you would like to give, and what your healthy capacity is, for service to others, at any given time. Presence is the ability to have conversations that are respectful, receptive AND robust. 


This month, let’s slow down. Let’s take time to pause. Let’s take a breath and say, “I’d like to think about it” before responding. 


The more we hold ourselves with presence, the deeper our self-respect, and trust in our decisions, because we’ve carefully considered them. It also imbues reverence and clarity in our relating with others - even and perhaps especially when navigating challenges. 



Big Love,

Helene
