Staring at the wall is not a waste of time
In fact, it's akin to doing community service.
Sometimes just looking at the wall is the best use of your time. ‘Why?’ you ask, ‘how could that possibly be useful?’
I don’t need to remind you that we are living in unprecedented times. I think we all are (sick and) tired of hearing that phrase. But we do need to remind ourselves of the amount of information that is bombarding us, every moment of every day. Information that we are both conscious and unconscious of. Information that is not only written down or spoken out loud, but also information that comes in the form of thought forms, emotional energy, electromagnetic energy and cosmic energy.
We were never designed to process so much information.
Do you know of the famous psychological experiment involving a rat and a labyrinth? This isn’t exactly how it went, but it’s pretty much how it went - rat number 1 learns to go through a brand new, never-seen-before labyrinth in New York; it takes him 2 hours. Rat number 2 is in London, he never met the New York rat, and he gets the same labyrinth a week or so later. It takes him 1.5 hours to solve the puzzle - half an hour faster. Number 3 rat is from Japan - same labyrinth, about a week or so after London rat. It takes him only 1 hour, which is half the time of rat number 1. And the Australian rat, number 3, well, he goes though the labyrinth very quickly. It only takes him half an hour. All the rats learned from the rat depository of consciousness, the more frequently they did it, the quicker it became. This rat experiment was based on observing monkeys washing sweet potatoes in salt water, and is probably as close as science can come to proving that we have a collective consciousness. Rats link to other rats, monkeys link to monkeys. And we are connected to each other, too.
So here we are, processing more information than we ever thought we could handle (and unfortunately some of us can’t handle it). Also now, humanity is going through an existential crisis. We are sifting through all the information that has been uncovered in order to discover what is worth keeping and what is not. To learn what is true, and what is a lie. It’s so very confusing, we are faced with a massive learning curve. Oh boy, is humanity learning some lessons right now! As we process what we learned, we are filtering out what is rubbish and leaving it behind, and keeping only what is useful. And we are raising our frequency as we add this learning to the collective.
The best thing we can do for ourselves right now, to help with the process of processing, is simply look at a wall. Or out the window. But a wall is better, there’s less stimulation there. By reducing the amount of information we take in, we can better process the information that we already have. And there’s reams of it. It’s coming in thick and fast and it has not slowed down, in fact it’s actually speeding up.
You can think of ‘wall time’ as you, doing your community service. The more you process, the easier it is for someone else to process. Okay, perhaps looking at a wall isn’t as nice to do as focusing on your breathing or walking in nature, but we do have a tendency to start thinking when we do this, and then we get caught up in the thoughts, and we stop being silent. Sitting in silence is better, if you’re able to.
Of course, what silence actually is can be subjective. I’m in my office as I write this and someone upstairs is drilling a wall. Someone across the road is hammering a new extension, the person who lives downstairs is taking an electric shower and I can hear all the noises. I also have tinnitus, but my brain isn’t paying attention to that. Or to the noises around me, because the silence I am experiencing isn’t related to the sounds around me. Thank goodness! No. The silence is within my heart and mind. I have learned how to cultivate a sense of peace from within. Being centred is imperative. Whilst people are being agitated, triggered, upset, attached to drama all around us, the drama that comes from the reactions to the information that is being received, those of us who can be still, must be still, to balance it out.
We are the lightworkers, we hold the frequency of the energy of the collective as it lifts to a higher vibration. It’s like being a crystal in a crystal grid. I’m one of them, maybe you are another, we connect to each other and hold the frequency of peace. Balance. Stability. Then the whole can stabilise. It’s called entrainment. But it’s hard. The information that we are sifting through right now is dark, horrible stuff. The truth has changed the world that we lived in and it will never be the same. It was always there, we just never really saw it before. We need time to work through this.
Some people are triggered and upset right now and not able to process the information just yet. That’s okay, but we cannot save or rescue them. By us holding that grid, that frequency of peace and stability, it makes it easier for them to rise up to meet us. If they want to, of course. We cannot make anyone do anything. Many people wilfully ignore their inner work. And many people don’t know that a process of evolution is going on at all. Not everybody is coming with us. And we have to process that, too.
My point here is this - if you find yourself staring at a wall and before you know it half an hour, a few hours, or even a whole day goes past, know that you are not wasting your time. We are connected, and we are processing the emotions, the thoughts, our history, the state of the world, for each other. So do not berate yourself for staring at a wall. Chalk it down to energy work, put it down to you, doing your community service. Soon it will become quicker to process because more of us will be doing it. But for the moment it is taking longer as we forge the path through the darkness. So look after yourself. Find that place of stillness within and breathe. Give thanks that you are part of the earth clean-up crew. Do let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
Dear Abby, thank you! I have been telling people lately how much I enjoy just sitting on the step in front of our entrance door and just watch the garden, the trees and our pets. I enjoy it and I am glad that I reached the point where I really enjoy doing nothing. After a while my mind comes in and tells me it's time to get up and "do" something that my mind thinks is more important than just sitting. Now I will tell my mind that I am contributing to the greater good by just being and clearing the energies and again you helped me to shift my perspective! Have a blessed day!
I like the idea of doing community service. It gives meaning to something we might have felt bad about, like we were being lazy. I am reminded of Milton's poem, On his blindness. " They also serve who only stand and wait". For some of us, it is a waiting game, but we are holding a line.
