Passion is the Essence of Life

Are you asking yourself, “Why isn’t anything happening?” Or “where did my passion go?”
If so, then I have good news.

The Patchwork Grandmothers say “Let it go for a while!” They love a good, blank slate to work with. And by blank slate they mean empty, hollow, sluggish, dispassionate, and lacking enthusiasm.
Sound familiar?
 
The Patchwork Grandmothers remind us that our passion never really goes away.

Passion is the very essence of Life. And we are a part of Life itself.
 
Here are some soothing words from the Grandmothers:
 
Beloved Grandchild,

We want to remind you that You are Sacred. 
Every state of BEing that a Human Being experiences is Sacred. 
We want to help you break down the judgements about your empty and hollow times. And yes, even your depressed and passionless times.
When you feel nothingness, or emptiness, or a lack of passion, you become fearful that purpose, passion and joy will never return. 
From where we sit in the Spirit Realm, we know it will. It must.
From where we sit, we see the Womb of Creation being seeded with your Dreams.
We see that Nothingness creating Something-ness.
We see that Void rolling out new Creations.
Birthing your Visions.
The Void is necessary for the next steps of your journey.
Do not fear the Void. 
Embrace those empty, passionless times.
Just Be.
Instead of squirming away from the fear you feel, surrender to the Present Moment. Let serenity replace that fear.
Just BE.
When you let your state of Being just BE, a thick fog of emotion and judgement transforms into clear, potential energy. 
Give yourself a few moments of being passionless. Of being empty.
See what seeds are planted in that succulent Womb of Creation.
We love you.

Thank you, Grandchild, for the work you do.
We honour you.

You Are MORE Than Enough

I don't know why it is… that when our lives kick into high gear, or when events happen that break our heart, like someone transitioning to the Spirit World, or losing a job, or a dream falling through, or friendships and relationships changing, we bottom out. We turn on ourselves with judgement. We tend to think that it means something bad about us.

The Patchwork Grandmothers say this is not so. From where the they sit in the Spirit Realm, they see these intensely creative and Sacred Beings, who walk around forgetting Who They Are. They encourage us and remind us Who We Are because our Sacred Lineage goes all the way to the Creator. We are all Sacred Beings here on this planet.

On this Earth walk, we forget who we are and think we are not enough. The message from the Patchwork Grandmothers is You are MORE than enough.

You are enough.

The very air you breathe is enough. The grief you feel is enough. No matter what's happening to you in your life, you are enough. Your experiences are the game of Life but they never take away your sacredness and they never take away who you really are. Sometimes we forget this, which is why the Grandmothers’ messages are very simple. We can complicate anything. A reminder that we are enough is a message that we almost need to hear daily. I don't know about you, but I can turn against myself in an instant. I have tools now and I may not stay there very long but I still need to be reminded every day that I am enough. That what I offer the world is enough, that my smile is enough, that my talents are enough, that my friends and my relationships, that what I do in them and what I receive in them, is enough.

There is enough. For all.

You are enough. No matter what's going on in your life, no matter how you turn against yourself, let this moment be one where you change your mind. Let this be a moment where you remember that all of your offerings are sacred. And all of it is enough. In fact, it's necessary and needed in this world. You are needed in this world.

All of your foibles, different qualities, your thoughts, dreams, upsets, all of those things are needed in the world. When we hear from you, the world is changed. You may not see that change but all of those little contributions from all of you Sacred Beings help change the world.

You are enough. You are more than enough. Today, I hope you will remember that message by accepting yourself and recognizing your beauty.  Today, I hope you will pass on the message to others that they are enough too.

We are enough. And we all need to hear it.

Let Those Energies Create Space

Grandmother Wind is writing after a little hiatus with some new experiences and insights to share. I have been on a hiatus from you here, but certainly not on a hiatus from life and commitments. Life doesn’t stop, does it? Our loved ones and our beloved jobs still require us to show up fully - regardless of how tired we may be or how anxious we may be feeling.
 
You may expect the Patchwork Grandmothers to say, “Slow down. Take care of yourself.” Which of course is true. But today, they are sending out a different message. One that reminds us:

  • to honour whatever we are going through at whatever moment we happen to notice.

  • that nothing is given to us that we can’t handle.

  • to tune in and pay attention.

Their message today is: Let those Energies Create Space.
 
As the world speeds along, are you running to catch up?
Are you dancing in a mess of chaos?
Good.  Let’s assume it’s not a bad thing.
That's definitely a good thing.

What if the Grandmothers are saying…the speeding up effect is to knock the “same-old, same-old” pattern off its course. When you are running to catch up, you can’t be circling the same old track you have always travelled, can you? The rut in the road is washed away by the tidal wave of emotions, experiences, ideas, commitments, and surprises that come your way instead. That’s definitely a good thing.
 
It may seem overwhelming, and your energy levels might be all over the place. But let the new, uncluttered path in front of you soothe you.
If nothing is familiar – then nothing is boring.
If nothing is repetitive – then no old patterns are tripping you up.
Notice that All is new.
All is open to your highest potential.
There is brand new Space within you that wasn’t there before.
 
Nothing new can be born without clearing some of the old. That is what the speed, chaos and busyness are helping to create in your life. SPACE.
 
Take a moment to notice the new space WITHIN you. You may not feel it outside, but see what’s happening on the inside.
 
The more space you open up, the more connected to Creation you feel.

I love you.
