In modern society we are all about mantras like “just do it” and “no fear.” We worship Yang energy – the energy of doing-ness. Yet, the power of the flow and wisdom of psychic guidance is the opposite: don’t just do something, sit there!
We have come to neglect the Yin energy in our lives – the energy of being-ness. We are afraid that if we hold still we are quitting, resigning, giving up, procrastinating.
Have you ever tried to get through to a friend who will just not shut up? That is how it is for our Spirit Guides, the Higher Self, Yoda, Jesus, The Force, Source, God, the Divine – whatever your belief. When we don’t hold still and shut up, nothing else can come in to guide us. We are then at the mercy of our crazy human mind with its puny imagination and its self-absorbed ego, which is limited by the imagined boundaries typical of earth plane thinking.
The created universe carries the yin at its back and the yang in front; Through the union of the pervading principles it reaches harmony ~ Lao Tzu
The power of Yin is pregnancy – allowing something to grow. Yin is magnetic energy, while Yang is electric. And we are each of us an electro-magnetic field, so we do need a balance of both: Yang and Yin.
Yin is the ability to ask questions, to create room for “not knowing,” so we have the space to learn something new – even if we think we know it all. And do we ever really know it all? With all the pressures of the world, we often succumb to the pressure of “just do it… and do it now!” I know. I used to be a professor, and my job was to “know” everything.
This is why spiritual talents need persistence, practice, and discipline, if one wants to develop and grow. Just like everything else, like earning a degree, learning to fix a car, staying in shape, eating healthy, we have to work on it if we want to be good at it. Even if you have a talent, say being a gymnast, one still needs to practice to stay fit and practice hard to become better and more skilled.
And like most endeavors, it is beneficial to have a… teacher or coach. At the very least you need an accountability partner, or just an encouraging friend. Yes, you do. Yes, indeed!
Meditation; learning to hear and converse with Spirit Guides; developing or increasing our own energies so we can stay more centered and be more psychic; exploring our ability to heal; or to communicate more with our loving pets; are all skills that can be developed in stillness and cultivation. Having a spirit or human teacher, mentor or helper is a huge benefit.
Transformation contains both change and stability, plurality and unity, movement and constancy. It has the nature of life, namely, to connect organically the polar opposites, the stumbling blocks of logic, and to unite them in an all embracing rhythm ~ Lama Govinda
I hear so many complain about the quality of life, but rather than pay money or spend time on self-cultivation, they choose other priorities, such as an expensive handbag, or a luxurious weekend on the beach. There is nothing wrong with these choices, however one must realize these are mostly transient experiences that will only produce temporary happiness. Self-cultivation produces permanent joy that cannot be rocked by the ups and downs of life’s circumstantial events.
Yin energy teaches us to “go in and up;” to connect with Self and Above. Yang energy teaches us to take that and “go out into the world” to manifest. Without Yin we are without the Self, and then we are not manifesting, but rather simply “acting out,” as they say in classic Psychology.
Learn to cultivate and use Yin. Get a teacher or helper. Become “one” with you. You and your Self is one of only two permanent relationships in your life. The only other eternal relationship is with Spirit. Learn to sit there, listen, learn, get guidance and then act.
