Low profile

Walhydra hasn't deliberately been keeping a low profile, but it seems that way.

It's partly just that she's been busy elsewhere, like here, here, here and here.

But she has also been wondering: "Am I distracting myself from inner guidance if I rush to blog about it every time I am led to some new self-awareness?"

Heavy duty thinking for Walhydra!

Enjoy the waiting.

I don't know. For me blogging about my new 'self-awarenesses' helps me to articulate and acknowledge the new realizations, much more than just journaling about it, since a blog is for an audience and I have to organize things to make sense to someone other than myself. I've found it (blogging) one of the most helpful things for that sort of thing, actually, more helpful than therapy, believe it or not. But sometimes you have to sit with things, so yeah. And anyway, you know, your mileage may vary, as they say.

Michael, I just read your comment on my "faith" post. Thank you so much for your references. I already love Hystery's blog. This whole thing is so timely because I have basically been told to "get lost" by my 3 siblings for 1) my beliefs and 2) "something" that I "did" to my brothers when we were all children. I'm not exactly sure what it is, but I THINK it may center around "playing doctor". I think we were all under 10 years old when this happened, but suddenly, it's taken on epic, adult proportions, as if at age 52, I'd been transported back and time and "molested" them when THEY were children and I wasn't. Personally, I think it's just a way to distract the discussion from its real subject, but it's so very bizarre, and I am SO thankful that we are separated by 1500 miles.

I am debating on blogging on this as it is a sensitive subject, but for the time being, I just e-mailed them all to apologize for whatever it was I was supposed to have done and said maybe it would be best for us not to have contact for a while because I wasn't going to change my beliefs to make them feel better.

Sorry to fill up your comment space, but I guess I just needed to vent!

Thanks and blessed be,

GG/Igraine

Thalia,

You describe well what has been my own experience since I began blogging Walhydra. Blogging takes journaling to a new level, because I'm choosing to be vulnerable to a public readership.

Usually I journal longhand in a bound volume and then, if something rises to the level of public sharing, I challenge myself to write has honestly as possible.

The exercise with Walhydra involves voicing a complaint and then "begrudgingly" acknowledging some leading which inlightens me a bit.

Recently, though, I've caught myself rushing to compose a post when I receive a leading—instead of sitting with the leading, listening to it, attending to it, learning from it. That risks my failing to internalize and use what I've learned.

Hence the temporary "low profile."

Thanks again for your comment.

Bless├Ęd Be,
Michael Bright Crow
