I just returned from a long trip away visiting my grandchildren and have been feeling a bit disconnected. I don’t know if this happens to you when you come home from traveling? For me, catching up at home with personal things and work takes extra grounding, focus and discipline. I also left my cell phone on a plane, which has not yet been found, which has added to my unsettling feelings of disconnect.

One of the highlights in my life is writing my blogs! So I’m carving out the time this morning to reconnect.

As I’ve often shared, I try to see everything that happens in my life as an opportunity to learn and grow. I know I have a choice in how I respond to anything and everything; especially those things that are most uncomfortable and out of my control. As a shamanic practice, I constantly work to transmute any feelings of being “victim to” anything in my life and ask, “what can I learn from this, how can I empower myself?”. I root, ground with the earth and call in my helping guides and spirits.

If you’re fortunate enough to own a cell phone, you can probably imagine how unsettling it might be to loose it. There are all your contacts, important texts, notes to self, business information, voice memos, cherished photographs, and all kinds of personal information that could be accessed by a savvy hacker. When I realized that I’d left it on the plane I made a conscious choice. As I watched the plane fly off over Salt Lake with my phone under Seat 6C, I could have gone down a tunnel of frustration, upset, fear and even paranoia. But instead, I chose to be with the inquiry, “what’s the opportunity and what can I learn about myself ?”.

Honestly, on so many levels, it’s been a great relief to not have it for awhile. Not only has it freed up my energy and time, considerably, but I’ve gotten to see what a hold it had on me! I’m seeing, smelling and tasting more the exquisite blossoming of a long awaited summer in Maine!

I’ve also realized how addictive it can be to have one of these amazing mini computers with me all day long. I’ve found that it takes a lot of discipline to not check it constantly! Not only does that consume an incredible amount of time in a day, but also leaks my energy. I don’t know about you, but I’m one of those people who feels compelled to respond right away when someone contacts me.

So, even if I’m involved in something else, when an important text or email comes in, until I actually respond, I feel a sense of responsibility which lingers in my energy field. This has been an invaluable teaching for me around the energetic hold my phone has had on me. Being without it has helped me recognize how much of my precious energy I allow to be leaked by this. When I replace it I intend to use it in a more generative, healthy, balanced way.

If you have an I-phone (and/or a computer), I’m inviting you to try actually turning it off for a set amount of time. Maybe a few hours, half a day, or even for a whole day if you can. Long enough to shine light on your relationship with it, and to feel the breathing space that opens in your energy field, and the deep sense of reconnecting with the stream of life itself, that I’ve noticed has happened for me during this time. And I’m more open to hearing and feeling the steady stream of messages and inspiration
flowing in from spirit.
