I recall a conversation I had with a friend who insisted that time is fixed. He is thoroughly convinced that time is the only resource that can be used up and cannot change in any way.
I chose not to dialog with him in the moment (our time together was very brief) as it felt more like it could easily become an argument, and it was not that important to me. I certainly understand his perspective, as it is a traditional point of view. However, I’m sure he would not be able to see mine.
Interestingly, I had just finished my interview with Teressa Moore Griffin for the first episode of a radio show I hosted at that time, called Compelling Change. During the interview, we unexpectedly touched on the topic of time.
In this episode, I described a simple energetic technique which I’ve shared with many clients over the years. I’ve called it by various names. Usually "Time Capsule" or "Time Ship" elicits the most warm responses.
Here’s the episode. Some of the recording is not very smooth, as I had just purchased recording equipment which I was still experimenting with.
The general idea is to create an energetic field that helps you to make time more malleable. The energy inside this container is palpable when you reach it in a meditative state. It doesn’t even need to be a deep meditative state — a relaxed open state is quite enough.
Time is changing. So this is a good time to reflect on your relationship to time.
Do you feel controlled by time? Do you believe you have enough .. or not have enough? What does time mean in your life?
In this year of 2012, it is particularly poignant to reflect on the idea that time is changing. If you cannot believe that, I suggest that you pretend that it is possible that time is changing.
I also suggest that you make a friend of time. Friendship is the best relationship you could have with time, or anything. I’d love to hear from you, answering one or both these questions:
* What is your relationship with time?
* What do you want your relationship with time to be?
I look forward to your reflections.
