When it comes to being in our centre.
First, we must know who we are and where our centre is. And these are often not so easy to achieve. Believe me, I know.
For years, I knew very well what not knowing who I was felt like. It was a feeling of one dimensionality. It was not having a clue what it meant when anybody said; “Just be yourself.”
When I began to settle into being my truth, it didn’t seem to be a ‘thing’ anymore. Being myself was just, well, being myself. It’s a being thing, not a doing, it kinda does itself when you let it. What changed was the healing that meant I no longer had to work out what other people wanted me to be, do and say, that I was no longer defined by others, but by myself.
When it comes to finding your centre, it’s not anatomy or geography, it’s sensing energy. It’s an energy inside of us that, when we kind of probe around with our awareness, it’s where we feel most stable, most balanced, most grounded. Like we have a weight there that anchors us to stability. I think that might be a slightly different place for each of us. And when we place our consciousness there, we are still. And peaceful. So we just stop everything and let ourselves just be. And then, from that place, we can remember our truth and trust ourselves to stay in that truth. Go on, have a poke about with your awareness and see if you can find that place inside you.
What I have found is, if we think we know, we don’t. Either we know we know, or we don’t know who we are and where our centre is.
Being in our centre means remaining completely connected to our truth, our integrity, our power at all times. It means being grounded and aligned. To the shaman, it is existing on the pole of the worlds, at the centre of our circle of power. Right in the centre of all that is. It’s the eye of the storm. It’s trust. And unconditional love for one’s very own self lives there.
