I facilitated one of our monthly Akashic gathering calls recently, and our topic was the courses we are taking in our lives. The Records were guiding us to look at our life lessons more like delicious courses in a celebratory meal, rather than tough lessons required to slog through life.
As I wrote an email to one of the participants this morning, another truth popped into my head and heart: “The vast power of non-judgment lies in its stillness.” (Non-judgment is a key topic in one of my life’s current courses, Unconditional Love.)
And as I write this, my Records are showing me an ocean crashing into a shoreline being stilled by non-judgment. They are saying that much of the storm in our lives is ignited and fueled by judgment. Withdraw that judgment, and the natural ebb and flow of life is no longer subsumed by the force of judgment.
“So, why aren’t you telling me that acceptance is what calms the storm?” That’s my question now to my Records.
“Well,” they answer. “Acceptance does add another frequency, another intention to the dynamic, which would impact the flow. If you simply withdraw the energy of judgment, allow the flow to manifest, and then accept that, you are allowing the flow to appear as itself alone. Once it shows up as itself, it is less prone to being influenced by the energy of your acceptance.”
I can tell I will need to be with this one for a while – which I quickly I realize is in keeping with the message. Just be with it – don’t try to prod it too much with analysis or I might alter its essence.
And here’s what question pops up next, “So is allowing a different frequency from acceptance? Does allowing impact the flow?”
“No, it doesn’t,” answer my Records. “When you allow, you are not sending your energy into something. You are simply witnessing, observing. That said, your energy will radiate toward it, and eventually impact the dynamic, but because it has no intention of disrupting the natural flow, it will not.”
Ah, yes. I’m reminded of the universal law that energy follows intent. With acceptance, our intention is to know something well enough to accept it. With allowing, however, we’re not attempting to know. As the Beatles would say, “When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me. Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.”
