Don’t poke Holes in the Air, the Seagulls might Trip Over

I remember as a child pointing in the air and someone saying to me, “Don’t poke holes in the air, the seagulls might trip over.”

I was recently reminded of this during an online Esoteric Yoga session. I have found that Esoteric Yoga sessions can really support me to build a relationship with my body and to reconnect to the natural stillness that exists within – a must for my busy lifestyle.

This yoga session happened to take place in my car as I was in between meetings, so I had pulled over to a quiet spot facing the beach, pulled out my laptop and completed the session by Skype with an Esoteric Yoga practitioner.

So here I was in my car, and as I was a bit caught up in the momentum of the day, I found myself talking really fast. The practitioner asked me to close my eyes and supported me to re-connect to my body, feeling my feet, my ankles, my legs, my buttocks on the seat, my back, my shoulders and neck, and then my head.

Within minutes I could feel the racy momentum I had been in drop away. I slowly connected to being with my body and the world around me expanded.

The practitioner then asked me to put my seat belt on, while holding the quality that I had just established in my body. It was like chalk and cheese compared to how I would normally put my seat belt on.

As I completed this gentle movement, that saying came back to me and I got that we can move in sync with the world, or we can move against it.

I found myself doing a very familiar movement that felt in sync in the world – which was a rarity because I normally don’t do it in sync; one could say I had made quite a few holes in the air!

My normal mode is usually one with very little conscious presence, in autopilot, and quite often I rush the ‘house leaving’ or ‘car starting’ part of my day. If my childhood saying was true, I would be “poking a lot of holes in the air,” and for sure, the seagulls in my neighbourhood would be on crutches more often than not!

But not this time: the energetic quality that I had established meant that I put my seatbelt on with such ease, one could even say with grace, and definitely it was in flow with the world. I don’t think the seagulls would have even batted an eyelid!

So continuing with this hole theory, have you ever watched someone in high emotion walk into a room – did you notice that a disturbance can be felt, ripples can be made, and that holes could be created?

I remember when a good friend of mine was dying. We were surrounding his bed during his final days, and I watched the effect of how different nurses would enter the room. Some would enter, take in the mood of the room, be in sync with what was going on and go about their duties. They graced the room. Others did not do that; they almost barged in and did what they had to do, then barged out again, leaving an out-of-sync feeling in the room.

I was then filled with a deep appreciation for Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine practitioners and modalities because they are inspiring so many people to look at the energetic quality in which they are living their lives.

We all do trillions of activities throughout our lifetimes, but how often do we stop and look at how we are doing it – what energetic quality and what impact are we having on the world around us?

It is not what we do, but it is how we do it. Do we stop and ask ourselves ‘how’ do we talk to ourselves and to each other? How do we walk into a room? How do we put the bins out? How do we send an email? How do we hold ourselves at work? How do we do the dishes? How do we put ourselves to sleep? How do we respond to critique?

These are good questions to be asking ourselves and I have found the presentations and healing modalities of Universal Medicine certainly help me to understand energy and what quality I undertake many activities in.

Are we creating holes or are we maintaining the natural rhythm and flow of the world around us?

I appreciate that I now have a new marker as to how to put my seatbelt on – I might not remember every time but it is there.

  1. The more we develop our relationship with our quality within and bring our focus to implement it into our daily movements, we realize we are part of something greater and that there is a divine flow to life.

  2. Every movement that we do matters. Everything has an effect on everything else. The way we put our seatbelt on for example affects our body and it is our body that is with us all day and all night, therefore, every movement that we make matters. This brings a great sense of responsibility.

  3. It’s a great image of poking holes in the air. If we were to truly feel the effects of our movements on the air around us and then therefore on other people we would stop and move very differently. Moving through water can show us this very clearly. It’s great to play with this in a swimming pool.

  4. Ah the not just what but how, appreciation and confirmation are qualities we so desperately need, otherwise we run around like we are frantic!

  5. This is a beautiful blog Sarah that has made me really ponder on the quality of how I do all that I do and the ripple effect is has on others and the world around me….

  6. I have been observing myself as I talk recently and have noticed a steady, confident, firm but loving voice begin to emerge, markers to appreciate and confirm the natural voice that is within; a vast difference to the hurried, sometimes childlike and doubtful voice that I have spoken in for most of my life. The way in which we speak can reveal so much about the quality of energy we live in.

  7. A deeper look at how we move and are Sarah, very timely to read, and it reminds me that we impact life and ourselves in how we move and we can change that in an instant.

  8. What if we learned from little that our movements are what we bring to the world and thus how very important the quality is we are moving in and not so much the moves we do.

  9. It is an important aspect and science of life. The fact we are holding ourselves in harmony with the flow of the world or against it is so important to notice as it has an effect on many parts of our life.
