First of all… what does it mean to “stay tuned”? This phrase is often used by news anchors, with the connotation that “something is about to happen” and you wouldn’t want to miss out on it. In the context of healing, it’s actually about what’s happening in the present moment.
When you’re "in tune", how do you experience it? Everyone’s experience is different in how they know when they’re in tune.
“I know I’m in tune when I’m focused on something” - all else falls away, because you’re in tune with the present moment, and what you’re doing in that moment. Be. Here. Now.
“I know I’m in tune because it feels right” - we can be out of alignment with the present moment for a variety of reasons. We might be doing work we don’t enjoy, or we feel we have to put on a “happy face” that doesn’t reflect what we feel inside.
“I know I’m in tune when everything falls into place” - harmony and order cultivate healing and a sense of ease. The goal is to cultivate this sense of order and balance inside of ourselves, even when we’re in the midst of chaotic circumstances.
“I know I’m in tune when I’m in the flow” - be like water. Water flows where it needs to, with an effortless and graceful power that can move mountains and carve valleys out of stone.
