Today, I got some great news! A friend of mine wanted a new living space and had found the one she wanted. However, someone else had already reserved it. My friend, instead of feeling defeated and in despair, chose to “hold space for completion”. Awesome!
For a long time, I would hear folks in the spiritual community talk about holding space. But I never found even one who could explain it to me in a way that I could understand. Then one day POOF! I had my own personalized understanding.
To me, holding space means you have a desire. You make your desire known to the Universe. There appears to be some obstacle in the way of having your desire. So, after making your desire known, you let it go. Every time it comes into your awareness (if it even does), you know and feel and accept that everything is going to be OK. You don’t worry about it, try to manipulate it, pray about it, or anything other than knowing, feeling, and accepting that everything will be OK.
In doing this, you are telling the Universe that you trust in the best for all concerned. You are saying that you understand that there are factors, perhaps unknown to you, that might account for the apparent obstacle and you are saying that you trust that whatever happens, even given your desire, you will be OK with it and not judge it, harbor a grudge about it, let it “mess with your head”, lose sleep over it, or let it get you down. Everything is always OK in one way or another – even if we don’t always know the particulars of that. You are saying to the Universe that, if it is best for all concerned – because holding space honors the choices and the best for all – this is your desire, but you release it to Source for resolution and completion.
And, woohoo!, it worked out for my friend. She chose a path often less traveled and it worked. And what does that do? It reinforces for her, and all who know of how she handled this, that there is an easier and better way to get exactly what is best. It engages new neural pathways and strengthens them so that next time she will be more likely to engage in the same pattern of behavior and thought. And, it teaches others how it can be. She rocks! My heart is so happy! She gets what she desires without impeding the free will and choice of anyone else. On some level, they agreed. How awesome!
Be on the lookout for other situations where someone takes this path less traveled. Together, let’s make this the path we all travel! We all rock! We can do this! Let’s get it done! Let’s allow this to be our “new” way to create and manifest!
From my heart to yours, from my soul to yours… Mahalo…Linda
P.S. To my amazing friend, you know who you are and I salute you. Awesomeness!
