Accretion means a growth or increase in size by gradual external addition, fusion, or inclusion. When I talk of the accretion of light I am referring to the subtle changes that we are all going through here on planet Earth. Since the end of December 2012, the Earth and all beings on it have been given an opportunity to accrete more light, yet to do this we have to make some personal changes to the way we think, speak, feel, act and believe.
Ponder the following parable for a moment:
Once upon a time, while walking through the forest, a certain man found a young eagle. He took it home and put it in his barnyard where it soon learned to eat chicken feed and to behave as chickens behave.
One day, a naturalist who was passing by inquired of the owner why it was that an eagle, the king of all birds, should be confined to live in the barnyard with the chickens. “Since I have given it chicken feed and trained it to be a chicken, it has never learned to fly,” replied the owner. “It behaves as chickens behave, so it is no longer an eagle.” “Still,” insisted the naturalist, “it has the heart of an eagle and can surely be taught to fly.” After talking it over, the two men agreed to find out whether this was possible.
Gently the naturalist took the eagle in his arms and said, “You belong to the sky and not to the earth. Stretch forth your wings and fly.” The eagle, however, was confused; he did not know who he was, and seeing the chickens eating their food, he jumped down to be with them again.
Undismayed, the naturalist took the eagle on the following day, up on the roof of the house, and urged him again, “You are an eagle. Stretch forth your wings and fly.” But the eagle was afraid of his unknown self and world and jumped down once more for the chicken food.
On the third day the naturalist rose early and took the eagle out of the barnyard to a high mountain. There, he held the king of birds high above him and encouraged him again, saying, “You are an eagle. You belong to the sky as well as the earth. Stretch forth your wings now, and fly.” The eagle looked around, back towards the barnyard and up to the sky. Still he did not fly. Then the naturalist lifted him straight towards the sun and it happened that the eagle began to tremble, slowly he stretched his wings. At last, with a triumphant cry, he soared away into the heavens.
As with the eagle you have patterns of behaving and being from the past that prevent you from stepping fully into all that you truly are and meant to be. Below are a few actions step you can take to become your own “naturalist” to assist you in overcoming your fears and confusion and to spread your wings and soar into your Divine and purposeful plan.
1. Take action mentally, emotionally, physically and ethereally to change your negative patterns, habits and relationships and shift them toward more positive, co-creative, loving, joyful qualities, habits and relationships. This lifts your spirit into higher realms of consciousness.
2. Locate people who have been accreting more light, i.e., they are and have been working on cleaning up their thoughts, words, actions, feelings and beliefs for some time. Follow their teachings, take their courses, sign up for their services. Often times these teachers, just by being in their presence, will download a multitude of qualities into your field of existence so that you can access this and begin to be the source of your own brilliant light.
3. Devote yourself to prayer and meditation by connecting to your source of light. Invite and ask for assistance from your spiritual guides in this journey of healing and change. Through accreting more light you will not only feel lighter, but further changes are made easier.
4. Take steps to align with your Divine purpose and plan. You know if you are not doing this, because there is a still small voice within that keeps reminding you. Be honest with yourself and do a thorough evaluation regarding your inner knowing of what you would be the happiest doing, who you really are, and how to become more alignment with your Divinity.
It is about stepping out of the proverbial chicken coup and creating the space and the possibilities to soar the limitless skies like the eagle! I see you as your greatest and grandest version of you.
Enjoy your flight!
