WHEN THE RUBBER BAND BREAKS

The phrase ‘being stretched too thinly’ can apply in a number of different ways.

 

Often we associate this with stress or overload in our ‘doing’ aspects of life. When we are manically busy and overwhelmed with the number of things that need to be done.

 

However, I choose to look at this in a different way.

In terms of narrative and inner belief.

 

Which part of your story is being stretched thin right now?

THE QUEST FOR INNER TRUTH

A friend of mine emailed me this week.

She expressed a deep feeling that the rest of 2020 was only going to get more mad and crazy and not less. She asked what I felt we could do in the face of all our stories breaking down.

 

I had to stop and think about it.

SILENCE WITHIN, SILENCE WITHOUT

Today, I sat on the mountainside.

 

My back to a large Ponderosa Pine tree who’s bark smelled like caramel.

The sun had warmed the pine needle carpet underneath me and it pulsed in waves of hot earth aroma, more pungent than oil.

A quiet human.

A rarity in these parts.

It’s around 10 miles away from me. Yes, I am safe, and yes, I ran right outside and called in the forces of the land, the elementals and the angels.

THE PRACTICE OF VISION QUESTING

An extract from The Soulistic Journey, a forthcoming book that Genevieve is co-writing with Lorna Howarth. Due for publication in Autumn 2020.

 

Vision Questing

Cracking open the outer casing of your old story and identity

 

Okay, so now we approach one of the oldest and deepest practices that we share with you in this book. It is not to be danced into lightly and indeed is one you may find yourself shying away from rather than running towards. If so, good – that means you are sensing into its power.

 

Vision quests have been used by indigenous cultures across the world for millennia as a mechanism to remove ourselves from our old story, humbly seeking a higher vision from Nature and the forces in our Universe, in order to inform the next chapter of our life purpose. And vision quests often sneak up on us when we least expect them.
