Okay, i’m working hard on that other blog (part 2 from yesterday) and i’m having a little bit of a hard time with framing it all in a way that makes sense and doesn’t go on for 400 pages, so I thought i’d shift gears for a day to explore something I just read with you.
This is a reflection and combination of two vibrations, one – this previous blog where I basically said “Look, if something is contradictory, there’s a deeper meaning to it that brings the two halves into a whole. Lets not push the contradictions individually, lets bring them together to understand the bigger picture.”
The second – I just finished reading Teals latest blog “Is Pain a Necessary Part of Birth?“, and it actually really got me thinking. I’ve been reading a lot of Teals blogs lately, It’s interesting to have another reference point of awareness to help me see where my own dots aren’t connecting.
Teal mentioned: I’m interested to hear your perspective (the reader) on this subject and on the dichotomous answer I was given.” – And so, as a reader, and also part-time blogger, here we go!
See, in this latest blog, she described an astral afternoon-tea with a some Spirit’s lounging around a fireplace sipping tea that went into a conversation about Pain, Resistance, and Birth. Teals interpretation of the data described it like this;
“They informed me that all pain is the result of some form of resistance and that if a woman could fully allow herself to give herself over to the process of life moving through her, her tissues would not resist the opening and the child would be birthed without pain.
But then they informed me that the pain Is a necessary part of birth. I was taken aback and asked them to explain further. They said that great creations are born of great contrast. They explained that when a woman is in the extreme amount of pain that occurs with birth, she is deep in the contrast.
It is a “dramatically accelerated process of creation” whereby the intensity of contrast gives rise to an intensity of creation that is capable of bringing forth a new point of perspective within the universe (a new life).”
As I read that, I saw the dichotomy clearly, both sides of the coin made sense individually. I’ve read of underwater human birthing with dolphins present gives rise to a woman having orgasms when they give birth, rather than excruciating amounts of pain.
After thinking about it for a minute though… It made sense to me. It’s still ONE thing, which in our heads we have separated into two.
All we have to do is look at a guitar string.
When you pull on a guitar string, the string resists your pull. It is pulled tight, and so it has a resistance. You create a big contrast, the string where you’ve pulled it, the string where it was, and also the equal distance on the opposite side of the direction that you’ve pulled it.
Upon releasing the string, you create what Teal described very well as “A Dramatically accelerated process of creation”, where the intensity of contrast in the string moving back and forth so rapidly gives rise to an intensity of creation. In this case, sound… and perhaps even Music.
The problem with physical birth, is that we’ve got so much stress and so much pain already from growing up, all of the separateness and disconnectedness, the music we make from giving birth is not a happy song, in fact, it doesn’t sound good, or feel good at all. In fact, it’s quite painful to listen to, let alone to play.
Were we in a different state, more loving, more compassionate, if the world was in a harmonious place and everyone loved everyone… well, beautiful, orgasmic births might be a part of everyday life. We wouldn’t have to get a dolphin in the room every time a baby was born.
I’d like to wrap this up by trying to simplify it, one more step.
Resistance, pressure, tension, or even stress, is a pulling, pushing, squishing, or stretching, of a thing. This can come from outside you, and it can also come from inside you. Usually, it’s reflected in both.
The pain comes from feeling the pressure, and being in a state of inability to deal with that much pressure at all. A little pressure is fine, and depending on your support structure, a lot of pressure can be fine too, but when we are unable to support the amount of pressure that we’re feeling? . . . You guessed it. The guitar string snaps.
Maybe with the awareness of the pain, we can find out where the resistance actually is coming from, and then we can take action to change it, to put something in place that can actually support the pressure, and that starts with asking some questions.
See, It’s not just physical birthing, but ALL manner of birthing! Every new idea, every strum of a chord, every new job, every new painting, or piece of technology, every new relationship! All of them are “birthings” of a new creation, a new “thing” coming into manifestation. (In fact, Ray and I made a video about it which you can watch here).
Teal wrote at the end of her blog, that because you’re in pain, you are experiencing a contrast of how beautiful and wonderful everything will be. I like it a lot, it sounds great, I also feel that it’s missing a very important piece.
Just because you’re in pain does not mean that you will be magically rewarded and everything will become wonderful, without any action or focused energy and attention.
Being in pain is an indication that there is some resistance or tension or pressure happening in your life, around you, on you, in you. Its an indication that if you want to create something magic, like a beautiful sound, you’ll have to actually do something about it. Maybe it’s changing the strings, or playing them differently, or learning a new song, or even a new instrument.
When you do that thing, when you create the contrast of feeling the pain, and doing something about it, back and forth, soon you begin to create a powerful song that is inspiring and uplifting to all those around you.
The only question left is… what song do you want to play?
We are One,
ps. Thank you to Teal for writing her blog yesterday!
