Last week I had the pleasure and joy of being involved in delivering the UK Facilitator Training over a 5 day period. During the 5 days, I noticed some of the participants having high and low moments. Some of the lows involved physical symptoms – headaches, nausea and facial twitching. These live issues of course became part of the Training as Playing Intentions in the Miracle Choice Game sessions.
Some of the high moments involved wonderful insights, realisations, releasing blocks and breakthroughs into seeing situations in a different way. These experiences were the result of a choice for love and the lows were the consequence of a choice for fear.
Why do we sometimes choose a low after a high moment?
There are probably many different motivations and desires that influence our inner decisions. One of them, I believe, is that when you move closer to love, the part of you that still wants to be separate becomes fearful. A really effective way to distract yourself from love is to become preoccupied with your body. Physical pain and discomfort make it more difficult to stay in a loving space. Another powerful way of getting away from love is falling out with someone or crashing your car – it’s amazing how creative you can be!
I think this dynamic is a common experience. Understanding what’s happening allows you to be gentle and caring with yourself. If you’re able to look with compassion and see how you are defending yourself from love then you’re already undoing your fear. If you’re watching your choice to be in discomfort then a part of you is not caught up in the pain. The part of you that’s not taking the pain seriously is joined with love. You’re able to connect to “lightness” and “ease” even though something heavy is happening with your body or you are angry with someone. You find yourself smiling inside at what’s happening outside. As you release the lows you get lighter and lighter and finally remember you are only “light”.
