Old souls abound in our lives currently. Old souls are abundant. They are crowding the scenery. Who doesn’t know an old soul? Who out there doesn’t think of themselves as an old soul? Old Souls are notorious for being persecuted, tormented, exiled even. This time around there are so many they blend in as Every Man. They used to be shamanistic, esoteric healers, sought after oracles. We no longer have that pedestal. Old Souls are us. And we are affecting change just by being here.
I had hoped to be an old soul of “oracle” standing, someone sought after. I had hoped for that low-grade lifetime of fame to show I am worthy of old soul designation.
If I ask myself what I wanted to show, or how I wanted to help – I think I wanted “laying on of hands”. I want to touch people and feel them be healed, to be cleared, to feel them open their “eyes”. And then of course, nobody touches anyone these days. We don’t shake hands, we lightly bump elbows for goodness sake. How is that “hello” or “goodbye” even? It just makes me laugh at the absurdity of it.
I wanted to affect change by channeling a loving guide, a voice to lighten those who would be compelled to listen.
I wanted to reach people by voice, by word, by work. I wanted to reach people by touch, by connection, by love.
I wanted to affect change in this lifetime with some semblance of surrealism apparently.
Apparently, this time around I only need to be present. This may be the hardest assignment. There are so many old souls we are not required to openly affect anyone. We just need to be present.
This assignment is much like being patient. I realize being patience is not waiting. Being patient is being engaged otherwise while that thing that is coming comes. In this way to be present is a lot like patience.
I don’t get to lay on hands, I don’t get to channel, I don’t get to openly, actively proselytize and make known this great wonder that I feel so deeply. I can do without the proselytizing, except I’m toeing a line right now…
I may be here in this lifetime merely to be present. There is no focus of person or activity.
This lifetime has gifted all of us with the power to CREATE meaning. We don’t have to ask for meaning, we create it. This statement is filled with power. So my super-power is presence? How do I work this? In the meantime, here I am.
