Balance or Harmony?
I have been thinking a lot about Balance. For years. More recently because of global pandemic, unraveling of systemic oppression, human-induced climate disasters and shitty world leaders I stew on the subject a LOT. Shout out to Gemini Suns…trying not to digress right here…The modalities I am trained in are called Zero Balancing and Polarity Balancing. And the hands-on work brings such peace. Here’s the deal-I don’t even believe in balance! I mean, it exists but it just isn’t sustainable. The scales are always tilting. The wheel is always turning. There are fleeting moments of perfect balance but they don’t last. At least for me. In striving for a perfection (hey Virgo Moon) that doesn’t exist feels harmful. In me, it causes feelings of overwhelm, not being enough, and obsessive compulsivity. I have seen and felt it play a role toxic positivity and spiritual bypassing as well.
Ugh, now what? I’ve been working on inviting harmony into existence. As the tilt happens-and it will-can we attain neutrality? Can you watch the tilt with curiosity rather than react or get swept away in emotions? Emotions are allowed to come up for sure but can you pause before reacting? Is a reaction needed? Can you observe them and learn from them? What is crying out to be healed? What is causing such tilt?
So how do we go with the flow? Are you aware that a flow exists? Are you aware of energy? Is it your own or others’? I find staying tuned into nature’s cycles- the moon, the astro shifts or the energy that comes with each season as the wheel of the year spins into its next phase has been an absolute gift. Opening my consciousness to Earth based practices and plenty of ritual helps to align my whole being with Universal flow as well as instill a feeling of belonging to a greater ecosystem outside of ourselves, families and communities that surround us.
Not to negate the hands on energy work I do. It has had a huge impact on my life and expanded my consciousness in profound ways. But now I can’t touch or be touched by practitioners because of global illness so I sit and ruminate. This work restores the idea of balance but what is really happening is an energetic harmonizing of the different energy systems throughout your body, subtle body (spirit or energy-body) and your overall energetic field known as aura as well as an adjusting of the Elemental and Cosmic energies. Aligning your elements with nature’s elements (YOU are nature after all) brings overall harmony and illuminates truth. What a gift! That sense of belonging and having greater purpose can reduce the background buzz that causes anxiety, fear and feeling like you aren’t enough or don’t fit in.
These are my musings and my questions for you are-How are you finding harmony? If you used to re-harmonize through touch therapy, what are you doing now? Where does surrender fit in? I know it does.
For now, maybe I’ll rename my modalities. Polarity Harmonizing and maybe I’ll call Zero Balancing “Systemic Harmony Reset.”
