The point between the out- and the in breath.
The point where everything is still.
I loved the time of stillness this year. It gave me time to retreat. To rest. To hibernate. To meditate.
But now, I am finding it challenging. My mind is wondering why nothing is happening. Why am I not creating? Why is my mind just blank?
It is like I want to move on now. So what I really need to do is stop. Listen.
And this is the challenge at this time of year. The Solstice energy is still strong. It is not like it has disappeared in these last few days. So patience is what is needed. More meditation. More rest.
And remembering that in that rest, ideas will form. New things will be born.
The spark of Imbolc is coming. But it is coming in its own time.
Trust Mama Nature. Trust the process.
This is the lesson of the stillness.
