I tell you when your a bear and you lie down in the fall to take a nap, it might be a long time before you wake up. I have allowed my consciousness to hibernate for awhile. Or should I say I have been hibernating in my cave while consciousness has been being and doing what it does? I guess it doesn’t matter really what the perspective is, the fact is that I have been asleep as far as this blog goes and as far as putting any real attention to the expansion, deepening and evolving of my consciousness. I have gone to sleep on my commitments to mySelf and to the intentions I set for mySelf a little over a year ago.
The really cool part of this particular hibernation period is that I have been aware all during it of my higher self patiently waiting for my return. I have been aware of mySelf sleeping and putting my attention on matters that are not particularly evolutionary. I have been aware of the “choice” not to be awake, which has a part of me being awake in a way. In previous journeys to the asleep place I successfully turned off all awareness of that awake part of me and when I was ready to wake up again I had to start all over, usually from a lot of gathered outside opinions and advice of people who loved and cared for me and “experts” on waking up. This time however because I was partially awake while asleep, aware of my higher self and the journey that I have been on I simply begin again with what I know works and what I am strong in. I simply redeclare my intention to mySelf and begin my practices that I know are what works for me to create an integrated and conscious self. I remove the distractions that I have brought into my life during this time of sleep and bring back the practices that help to focus me on the evolution of my consciousness.
It’s been quite a busy nap. I have certainly got lots of things done while sleeping. I have even created some interesting new directions, inventions and collaborations. There are some folks that I have come into contact with that would never even know that I have been asleep I have been so powerful and good at what I do and who I am that I can do it in my sleep, so to speak. And . . . It is time to wake up.
So I am turning of Castle Age today, I am not going to be playing the game that has come to symbolize my nap any longer. I am going to meditate daily for 20 minutes and I am going to move my body, either walking or swimming 3 to 4 days a week. I will write in this blog OR something for my book every day and sometimes I will do both. I will catch up on my Black Lodge homework that went by as I was sleeping and stay consistent with it through the end of the program.
