You’ve Got a Friend

posted in: Running 0

Today I feel that seeing the sun rise and watching it set, is purpose enough on planet earth; in fact the very act of simply watching the earth’s journey around the sun again and again lends itself to standing still and being in the circle of light, the circle of life…

Today I set off to run in the dark and felt the rising excitement of seeing the orange ball heralding a brand new day, pop into view – and then tonight almost exactly 12 hours later I set off again watching its powerful energy disappearing from view…

But the sun knows how to herald its arrival and its coming in such glorious style…  And to be silent within ourselves and in its embrace is all that is required…

Although tonight I had a moment or so of not being quite so silent, there was a big ripple deep from the depths of the lake!  I was gripped in fear… As I have run up and down the mountain, I have seen steps beside a great big water pipe and I had made a note to myself to investigate… So tonight was the night…

The first stretch was uneven and quite steep but they had a wire handle to grab onto, at the top I reached the mountain path and looked up to see many many more stretching to the sky… I wondered what would be at the top…

I never found out!

As I was making my way up and up, the higher I got the more precarious it felt, so I was climbing on all fours…

Then I started to feel a bit shaky and made the mistake of looking up, and then down… I felt the rush of immobilising fear in my body…

So I sat on a step and breathed deeply!

It was very very steep, but I did know I wasn’t in real danger… I knew that I was having fear arise, so that I might  clear it from my body… Fear from past lives, from an old experience in another life of falling to my death… From a deeply primal survival instinct that was over active and so accessed fear inside me…

Who knows…? But I did know it needed to be released and had arisen for this purpose… I sat for awhile and then as I was ‘mid vlog’ decided to report in… !

The very act of speaking with my ‘fans slash friends’ on YouTube, even though they would not see it until tomorrow was very helpful indeed… The power of us connecting, supporting one another, joining together.

We are all always there, all of the time, we just need to tune in, and through chatting to my iphone (!) I was able to tune in and connect with the loving group energy…

We are always there, all of us, all of the time… And it is in recognising that it doesn’t have to be one specific person – as this can limit the expansiveness of energy, of love and the resources we have within us which is a reflection of the collective whole.

In the end, I went down slowly slowly slowly on my bottom! A step at a time and of course reached terra firma again…!

These words from the song ‘You’ve got a friend’, feel relevant to me, and as yet I haven’t spoken to a soul since being scared up some steep steps on the side of a mountain…

‘You just call out my name, and you know wherever I am
I’ll come running, oh yes I will, to see you again
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
All you got to do is call and I’ll be there,
Yes I will, you’ve got a friend…’

When we feel in need of support, of love, of a friend… All we need do is open up our hearts and know the truth

We’ve got a friend, always within us, at the deepest level, we have our resources which are a reflection of us all, a reflection of love…

 

 

I have been running all of my life – it feels I was born to run. In the running step I experienced freedom and my true expression. I came to see that I needed to ‘get out of the way of myself’ and let my energy flow through the running step; allow it to express itself in the dance and the motion of running.

I have also worked in the lives of others as a guide, counsellor, healer and teacher for over 40 years.

I lived as a nomad for 6 years with my husband Anadi, but my inner voice brought me back to the UK in May 2019 and I have been living and working and running in London since then….
