Hello again, it's Lila. I've been traveling and busy with life in so many different ways so had taken some time off from the forum, though I joined you on these weekend sessions at some random times anyway. Things have been 'the same but different' for me on many levels. I do feel like things have been changing though many things appear the same on the surface. And then there are the in-your-face obvious changes that are 'unmissable'. Plenty of those too.
I thought I'd accomplish more on the cleaning front than I did, though, even here, I did accomplish a lot of cleaning, just in a different way than I'd been used to. I got more help and that felt good. I also did a lot of fun things; basically I reorganized how I was spending my time. A lot things that have needed to for some time feel like they've reorganized themselves without my even having to initiate the changes. Some changes feel temporary; others are likely just beginning to be felt, like the use of remote 'everything' in our lives that one never could have previously imagined doing remotely. I've been to a remote wedding and a remote funeral (both firsts) in addition to various more pedestrian social gatherings. Then again, I've been doing remote martial arts for a few years now (really; and it works too!) Some changes I've loved; others not.
We've become intimately familiar with a whole new vocabulary of words cribbed from specialized areas in an incredibly brief time. We've survived 'the great TP crisis' as well as a lot of heartache.
As I've missed a lot over the last weeks I'd like to take this opportunity to offer compassion to those here who may have suffered heartache in any form as these changes roll along.
The most consistent theme throughout all of this for me has been how big a factor my own capacity to embrace change is as well as my ability to make the change feel good and 'work' for me rather than against me. This has been true of others close to me to a degree that still stuns me. I see so many opportunities for thing to work better in the midst of this.
My favorite example of this probably remains the following from the very first days of 'social distancing'. I was with one of my dearest friends which was wonderful and I felt incredibly lucky to have ended up 'stuck' with her at such a time. We were chatting about all that was going on around us and decided that we were seeing many different forms of social distancing, some of which resonated with us, others horrified us. From this we decided to start an ever-increasing list of fun ways to social distance. We thought we'd use this crazy time as a way to do all kinds of things we would never normally have a chance to do. Lots of obvious things were on there such as riding our bikes (though we went on better and further trails than usual), paddleboarding to places not normally available due to time constraints, art projects we'd always hoped to do, gathering shells, rocks, etc just for fun, gardening (lots and lots of gardening that ia few weeks later is yielding all kinds of yummy results!), etc. The best result was a spontaneous decision to play just a wee bit of hooky and go to a beautiful island for some camping. This ended up being a real adventure as said island rather suddenly became a quarantine spot and we all were rather suddenly told that we must leave. Islands do have a history of becoming quarantine spots so this wasn't surprising. The surprising part was how incredibly quickly the entire place changed its role in life despite thousands of people being involved. Just one more example of how we humans really can make things happen when we decide to do it. Our leaving the island was a big surprise so we discussed it, made goals and put them into play. We actually enjoyed almost every moment of being booted from a beautiful place. The resulting adventure was amazing! It changed what could easily have been a really nasty experience into one worthy of many re-tellings for the awesome experience it was.
So this week I propose that we embrace change. It's coming anyway; why not make the best of it! ?
I don't know about all of you; I have consistently been clearly feeling that the the results of this crisis will overall feel like things movied rapidly in a great direction.
One of the things I wish for myself is that the coming changes brings much joy and ease. Please post below what kind of change you'd like to see, if you're so inclined.
Make your lists, check them twice and then let's see how we can make this change work for us.
This week we welcome the following new Roundtable members: POWER 888, MrDReed and uculucu.
No experience or 'special abilities' required. A sense of wonder and fun recommended.
There are lots of instructions below, or you can just ' jump' in sometime this weekend. It's all part of the mix. Just let us know you are dropping by.
If the exact time in your area does not work for you, then just join when you can. Many of us have no problems connecting a few hours earlier or later but find somewhere in a 24-hour window works best. Some people have even set the intention to join in dream time.
Instructions are posted below. Let us know if you have any questions.
The time for the session is the same each week based on 8am Sunday, New Zealand time, unless there is a daylight saving change in you area (if so, just go by 8am Auckland, New Zealand time). This time is calculated to make the sessions accessible to as many as possible.

About these Sessions
For those new to these sessions, or if you simply want to be reminded on how to connect in and what methods you can use to send healing, see this article here.
The purpose of these weekly sessions is to send healing to each participant, which can be accomplished by focusing on individuals or the group, depending on what methods you chose to use. You are always free to set secondary intentions around focusing on world events that may need some helping energy — on other levels our group also works in a multi-dimensional sense. Sometimes we get healing requests within the replies here, so do check back here just before the sessions begins.
Let us know if you are joining by responding below or or contacting us through the Contact Forum Admin link here. The session is 20-30 minutes and you can send, and or receive healing; it is up to you. Anyone can heal. No training is required to participate.
Please provide any feedback on here if you receive any and feel comfortable sharing.
The place we have chosen to visualize when first connecting in, and to anchor that connection, is a forest clearing. Think of an opening inside a forest where there is a large crystal in the center that we gather around. The ground could have moss or grass, perhaps even dirt or another surface that appears to you. There may be the sound of a waterfall nearby which could result in a river that you could see, or not. You could start off here and then go off to another place of your choosing to send and/or receive healing. Some people find themselves being taken on a journey where they are shown other things during a session, but we all experience this in our own unique ways.
You can find further information about these sessions through the link, Remote Group Healing, via the INFO link in the menu here on The Roundtable.
