Many years ago, I was struck while listening to an interview with Bruce Lipton, the evolutionary biologist. In it he said that all the young people who opt out of society and get shitty jobs in fast food places are actually participating in the evolution of society by refusing to invest in the old paradigm. I had to think on that for a while before I got it.
Now in my life I am surrounded by friends who are healers, artists and people living in new ways. No one has any real money to speak of, nor any real security. We do not follow the old rules or buy into the old values.
Instead we create art, community, healthy homes and free children, and bring our attention to our physical and emotional well being. We try to break down the old thinking and conditioning we grew up with.
This is the path of an evolutionary being and if you were drawn to read this, then you are one too.
As we follow our heart to create more authentic ways of living, all the energy that could have created a secure living goes into creating something new.
Can we reinvent at the most fundamental level, starting with ourselves? Can we live in this world and be healthy heart centered beings living authentic lives?
For each one of us the answer will be different. Some evolutionaries choose to live off grid, in nature, making their own power and growing their own food. Others forsake the security of having a home so that they can move around and share their work more broadly.
Whatever you are inspired to do in order to be true to yourself, you may find it the journey tales you to places of uncertainty. This is part of the evolutionary experience.
When caterpillar transforms as it becomes butterfly, it lets go of safety, and all that it had known, so that this evolution can take place.
So when life feels uncertain, when the money won’t show up and you are wondering whether you’ve got it right, remember that your willingness to step into the unknown paves the way for all those that follow. We are the imaginal cells that encode the blueprint for the new humanity that is emerging.
And for the courage to be one of the first to take that step…thank you!
In 2004, I began training in Metamorphic Technique with it's founder, Gaston Saint-Pierre. I became a practitioner, then a teacher in 2006, which led me to run workshops all around the world. I then created Sacred Life Alchemy, the Co-Create with the Field Manifesting Process, and Heart Listening, three profound healing systems to transform your reality into more of what you want. In 2017, I renamed my teaching Metamorphic Touch to reflect the new insights and perspectives I bring to this approach. Metamorphic Touch is a powerful healing modality to transform your life.
