My idea was to do Sadhana practice around 7am every day in Spain. But this morning Akasha clearly had a different plan. And while I have a long history of being resistant to the nature of things, these days I’m just going with the flow, listening, and following where She leads me. So here’s what happened…
Woke up at 4:50am. Haven’t seen this time of day in a week due to jetlag and Mom responsibilities. Didn’t think it was feasible to practice this time of day, even though it was the time I was waking up in the Hamptons just a week ago. So when I woke up, I thought to go back to sleep, but my cats wouldn’t let me. It was clear it was time for me to listen and follow. But what about the pictures?? The spectacular pictures Akasha’s been guiding me to take during my Sadhana practice. It’s pitch black out. Now what? Let go and accept. Do my Sadhana, post on Instagram, write our blog, and then take pictures…
I set myself up on the balcony. Set the timer on my phone for 33:02. Akasha determines how long I sit for. But in the middle of the Kriya, I see that the timer stopped. She is testing me. I decide to start from the beginning again. Timer set for 33:02 again. Chanting, sitting, communing, reminiscing with Akasha… it’s beautiful. Kali, my cat, comes crying. An alarm sounds. It’s Kaii’s cell phone. Kai is my son. It’s 6am. Eyes flash back to the timer. Stopped again, this time at 26:53, equals 88, a repeating number these days. Kai’s alarm louder in the distance, timer stopped, alarm sounding, I must be done, I deduce. Turn the alarm off.
Look up the meaning of 88 online and here’s what I find. The number eight is the symbol of infinity, and 88 symbolizes the double directions of the infinity of the universe, that is to say the infinitely small and the infinitely large. And more references to the Christ, continuing the theme from this summer… the eternity or the cosmic Christ.
Akasha speaks, I listen, and follow. I don’t know where She will take me. But so far it’s been an amazing ride. We hit a bump with the change from New York to Barcelona, but after today’s Sadhana I feel we’re back on track. Love living life with Akasha. The synchronicity of it all is beyond beauty. It’s bliss…
With Gratitude! One Love,
