There was a woman in my class last night who could not even bear mention of the spill. She feels acutely powerless. And is also, I think, feeling the pain of Nature/Gaia/the Sacred Ocean, as Mother Earth sways with pain so acute it almost cannot be borne. I think a lot of people, especially women, are feeling very close to the brink, and are afraid they’ll tip over with fear and pain.
What my problem solving mind wants to do is find a solution. I keep picturing the huge spill as calming way down, just a little oozing out, everything else stopped. That’s the picture I get, so I’m holding it. Others are starting group meditations, one email going around talks about meditating on healing the spill every Thursday, whenever we think of it. No psychic / intuitive / empath I know has yet been given a way to move the situation. As one says – this is a lesson for us on caring for the earth, and it won’t change until we learn that lesson.
At Dream Group last week – which I did not manage to attend – all the dreams were about collective responsibility – that we all have to take responsibility in our neighborhoods, and finally, for the planet, to change this situation. Waiting for ‘them’ to do it just won’t work this time.
I have not even been able to write about it. And can feel physically ill when it’s on my mind. Right now, I feel like begging The Goddess – or even God – to fix this for us. To stop those awful plumes and to stop that oil, never meant to be mixed with water, gushing from that pipe. It’s good that more and more of it is being captured and sent to a ship. But I just want it to stop. Now.
