Natural Law - October 2021




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.


Namaste The Spirit in me, sees the Spirit in you.

As humanity plunges deeper into the valleys of dark, there are many that are courageously Being - beacons of love and light.



Love is patient and kind, love does not envy or boast, it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way, it is not irritable or resentful, it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.

(1 Corinthians 13: 4-7)



In a recent interview, researcher and storyteller, Brene Brown identified a leadership quality that, in a decade of leadership research, she named as very rare. I have mentioned this in a previous issue of Natural Law, and I am naming it here again. The quality that Brene identified, is:



the transformative power of holding opposites, knowing that two things that feel competing and conflicting can both be true, and how the ability to straddle these kind of paradoxes really leads to transformation

In this valley of dark, amidst the fear and instinct to survive, we must feel the stability of the anchor within, to access the softness of pure and unconditional love.


In the dark, with this love, comes a light, which creates a shadow. When we focus light into dark places, we unlock the potential for an unleashing of transformative power that is healing and regenerative.

These are the parts of ourselves that we have ignored and buried away. It is time to bring into the light, gaze in the mirror, and embrace these shamed and shunned parts of ourselves. It is time to welcome them and love them back. Unprecedented self-acceptance.


To undertake this ‘Hero’s Journey’ make time for self-reflection. Due to our status quo, the usual ‘rat wheel’ world has slowed down, at least periodically for many of us. This is the perfect window to open your heart and mind to positive change. Anchor in, and allow the storms of transformation to whirl through your life.


When you open to accept and love ALL the parts of you, especially the parts that, deep down, you believe/d (through acts or omissions of others), made you unlovable, the more deeply whole (healed) you will feel, and, the brighter and more enduring your light will shine. In this dark valley, we need many torches of pure light, and unconditional love.


Calling on YOU (yes YOU!) to stabilise, light up, and lead with pure LOVE.


You are all my relations. All is One.


Blessings of Love & Light,

Helene
