The one thing that science and spirituality can agree on is that it’s all energy.
Energy is both a wave and a particle. It both causes things to vibrate and is the things that do the vibrating. The vibration goes in a cycle, or circle, which the particle traces out as the wave lifts it and then lowers it.
It’s this cyclical nature of energy which underlies this most ubiquitous of nature’s patterns. The cycle is everywhere in nature, from sunrise to sunset and the passage of the seasons. It’s there in the flow of water from ocean to cloud to rain to river to ocean, and it’s there in the lifecycles of insects and plants.
Your modern life may feel divorced from nature but you still live through the ebb and flow of cycles. They influence all aspects of your life, from the cycle of choices and consequences or the karmic cycle, to the cycle of energy. This is a natural consequence of having everything in your life being created by energy.
Have you ever felt caught in a circle, as if you’re back in the same place from where you started despite all your good work? Or your head rattling noisily as your thoughts go round and round? Those are more consequences of energy moving in cycles. The key to growing with ease and grace is in the way you complete each cycle.
Whether a cycle ends up as an expansive one or another repetition of the same-old-same-old is due to how you completed the last cycle. There are essentially three ways to complete a cycle:
- Avoidance or denial of the cycle. This means the cycle is actually still incomplete which inevitably means the cycle will be repeated.
- Acknowledgement of the cycle. That creates the possibility of change. As one cycle is truly completed, the next one will be different.
- Acknowledgement of the cycle and connection to a chosen future. This is the foundation of true transformation. Conscious connection to a chosen future creates the path for the new cycle, rather than leaving it to random chance. This is the most expansive cycle of all.
By completing your cycles you free up your energy and open the door to greater expansion. This is a particularly powerful step to take with your intuition.
Completion can be as simple as saying ‘thanks’ or ‘thank you’ to each of your thoughts. Do that next time you get them going round and round in your mind and you’ll soon notice how your mind begins to grow quieter. Even the simplest acknowledgements like that helps you let go of what you don’t want – and if you then re-focus on what you do want, like a more expansive future, you’ve just made your path a whole lot easier and more graceful.
