Based on an unusual and compelling dream, I recently performed a ritual wherein I declared into the ether that I want my intuitive skills to fully integrate and be expressed within my very rationally-anchored life as a businesswoman. Toward that aim, a small action I took was to begin memorizing poems that have heart for me. Two months ago I began doing this on my twice-daily walks with my dog.
Immediately, I noticed two things: 1) poems that wanted to be memorized seemed to pick me. That is, I would think I wanted to work on one poem, but the first line from another wouldn't leave my head until I switched. 2) the messages of the particular poems would be reflected in other areas of my life--poems and daily living seemed to merge. This simple act of memorizing poetry in the service of my declaration has vivified my daily experience and seems to be transforming me over time.
My bold declaration also ushered in new people, or new encounters with old friends. People are showing up unexpectedly, each drawing forth in some small way my non-rational self. A couple of days ago, I found myself at the website of a physicist--Ken Ferlic (Releasing Your Unlimited Creativity--ryuc.info). I cannot recall what took me to his site, or even what made me dial his phone number. But he answered the phone, and we have had two astonishing conversations that are clearly edifying to my aims.
This morning, still chewing on what exactly is unfolding in me, I looked up into the sky at the precise moment that the clouds formed the perfect letters: N O W. I confess, I had to look twice and then a third time, even as the clouds dissipated, to grok the magnitude of what I was seeing, so strong is my habit to discount sychronicities. I have no idea what is unfolding, but I am doing everything I can to be attentive to the magic that offers itself to a willing soul.
