Day 16 of Playing with Being Present: Being on the phone
Okay I admit this is still a button for me. When you’re on the phone with someone, you know if they’re present or not, regardless of them having a phone to their ear. Hearing them move around, clank dishes etc., sometimes talking to someone else (Human or animal) without taking a beat, mid-call truly pisses me off. When I call some-one to talk to them I honour them by actually being present. My time is valuable as I imagine so is theirs, if I don’t have time to give them my attention ….. I don’t call or if I have been called, I call them back. Even receptionists whom we don’t know, give us their full attention & if they can’t, they put us on hold, after asking us politely if that’s okay.
Now I get this is ego on my part, I get it stems from being ignored by my mother, I get that clearly there is some healing work to do on this, or I would not be triggered by this behaviour. I would simply ask for their attention and if they cannot give it reschedule the call. A wise woman I know once said, “Before we start our healing work we do not necessarily know what our crap is. Once we start we know what crap is in which pile” It makes me smile every time I think of it. Well this particular piece of crap of mine is off to the landfill.
Phones: Enjoy the photo trip down memory lane. Next? Implants would be my guess. You just tug on your earlobe to answer.
Here are some questions to ponder after you’ve done playing with the theme for the day.
~ Does it differ from your usual experience?
~ Have you had a new awareness from this experience?
~ Do you want to play with this again, or did it suck?
~ Was there any value in this experience? What ….
~ Are you beating yourself up for not playing well? Be present with that, and see if you want to repeat the flogging, or might you find that being present with a wee bit of compassion for yourself feels good?
Play, play, play. This is not a test, not supposed to be hard. If it’s not fun don’t do it now, try playing again later.
In this 20 day cycle you are invited to play with being present. Being in the present moment really means we are being conscious. Not in the past and not in the future. When we are in the present all the kvetching we do is not there. What you may notice is that kvetching/internal dialogue is about the past or the future. Every day will bring a new theme with which to play. An invitation to experience being present for as short or as long as you like. This is not a test, perfection is an illusion and not the natural law. Natural law is imperfection, if you doubt this, I invite you to go into nature and find one perfect thing. There is perfection in imperfection. No matter what we play, sports, games or anything else, with repetition comes learning and improvement. So be gentle with yourself, this is not work, it is play. Have fun experiencing …….
Your interpretation and experience is your own. I can only share my personal understanding, I invite you to find your own truths and their relevance in your life. This is really important. If something resonates great, if not chuck it out. We gain nothing by ‘taking on’ others life experiences and beliefs. The juice and healing comes from within your own understanding, it is pivotal for your healing journey and manifesting what you want.
Mayan Daykeeper Kib ~ Kib’s essence is solitude.
You may experience Kib as the need for solitude or the desire for separation.
Being alone is often necessary to unwind
from intimate or entangled interactions with others.
Kib’s gifts are given to those that can be alone with themselves.
On a day with Kib as Daykeeper,
you may want to find time to be by yourself
or focus on what you can do by yourself alone.
It is an opportune time to separate yourself
from people and things that no longer serve your current needs.
You may feel much better after bringing certain things to a final conclusion.
People born on a Kib day often experience
their most profound revelations in solitude and usually work best alone.
Even in the presence of others
they are able to maintain an independent awareness of self.
