In the cycles outworking there are always those pressure points, pressure points which force the unreal to the surface. It is squeezed out, because the unreal cannot withstand the pressures of reality. Only the real can withstand the pressures of reality.Lloyd Arthur Meeker
I still remember vividly the day I realized that the greatest pressure I was feeling in my life was from inside myself. I couldn’t believe it! Up to that point, I thought that the pressure I felt was from job-related issues or other people.
At first, it was just a glimpse of an idea. Could it be that what I am feeling is a tremendous creative urge inside me?
The more I played with the idea, the more I realized how true it was. I saw how I had a huge desire—as I believe all people do—to create and to manifest. That was driving me from within. And to some degree, I’d been sitting on it.
This realization totally reframed how I thought about pressure. It was there for a reason—to overcome whatever might stand in the way of living a happy, fulfilling life. I began to see that I was in charge of the release of pressure through my own creativity.
You mean I’m not a victim of the forces around me that I imagine are making me suffer?
It was then that I came to know that I am an active agent of an invisible reality within me. And that I am being real when I accept that in how I live my life. I began to know a deeper Attunement with the creative spirit in the depths of my human soul.
Consider any pressure you might feel today. How might your life be different if you embraced the creative desire of the reality in you that is creating it?
Attunement is a consciousness practice and an energy medicine practice that leads to personal spiritual regeneration.
