The elemental being that is Fukushima has been bumping up against me for a while, wanting attention. I was keeping up with the news – if you can call it news – about the ongoing meltdowns and radioactive discharges into the Pacific, feeling more horrified with each update. I didn’t want to tune in energetically to the thing itself, no way. It was way too scary even when I tried not to think about it.
But one day in a quiet moment my heart was overflowing with gratitude, and the radiation sidled up again. I turned my attention toward it without thinking first, without first shutting down into fear mode, and I was surprised to register its immediate relief. The radiation, or at least the part of it that had bumped into me, went into resonance with my emotional state. It morphed in a moment from a spiky grey chaotic jumble that had no meaning but a whole lot of action, into a calmer smoother presence weaving its way through the coherent energetic pattern of gratitude.
Love – I’ll just call it love for shorthand – didn’t stop the radiation in any way. I understood that the radiation could only do what it does, that there is no stopping it. But the radiation wanted to do what it does in the state of love. It wanted desperately to do what it does as part of the fabric of life, not as the destroyer of life. And it was looking to me – yes me personally but more to the point every single human – for direction.
It was as if the radiation were saying, “You created me – now what do you want me to do?” Fukushima offers us the opportunity and the challenge to step up into our responsibilities and abilities as co-creators. We do have choices here. We are part of the fabric of life and so is Fukushima. What future can we create, together, in love?
This forum is offered as a small contribution to the essential transformation now underway. I’ll do my best to translate my experiences with the Fukushima energies into words. Guest bloggers are welcome too. I look forward to your responses and additions and hope this site can become a useful conversation.
