In this life you will get where you are meant to be one way or another. As you attempt, moment to moment, to transform toward health and truth, a space holder can escort you in the most gentle and honorable way possible. How does this happen? Well, this is what I have learned…
A space holder can be anything, really, but the best I have found is a stone. I describe it this way: “A stone is a consistent, vibrational signature, made by God to remind us of what is true.” Everything else, in my experience, fluctuates vibrationally in relationship to something else. Humans and animals, for example, have moods and reactions that change moment to moment. A stone is a consistent vibration. It simply holds space as what it is, without pause or fluctuation. It will resonate to a certain frequency, be it peace, joy or empathy. It is made by God, the Creator, the divine, the beloved…your God, your name, you choose, to remind us of what it true.
Many years ago I lived with debilitating anxiety. I would isolate myself for up to 5 days at a time in order to regroup and function in the world. I didn’t have an easy ability to trust. One day, very early in my experience with stones, a friend walked past and put a stone in my hand and walked on with out words. I felt the presence of that stone, its resonance landed inside me and opened something familiar and sweet and very real. This was a profound turning point in my recovery and restoration. It was like a thirst had been quenched and I was reviving skills I had long forgotten…This is what trust feels like!
That stone reminded me where trust lived in my body, in my being, and how to begin repairing what had come undone within me. If I forgot, I could pick up that stone and remember any time I wanted. I didn’t need another person, place or thing to make me whole. That stone mirrored to me what and who I really was but had forgotten due to deep hurt and stress that had shattered my heart. I am not unique in my pain or my experience nor am I unique in my ability overcome it. You see, no matter what, we are designed to heal; we are designed to thrive.
We will get there, if we hold the intent to do so. What I have learned is that with a space holder, especially a stone space holder, the tangible, physical and immediate reminder expanding our awareness over time and reminding us to continually evolve from within, is the most effective path for just about everyone. I have space holders for every aspect of my life. I am deeply grateful for this Graceful and kind method of learning and growing. It is a paradigm rooted in peace, plenty and infinite possibility. Invite yourself to experience this for yourself.
