Source Does Not Speak in Form
When we find ourselves getting repeatedly frustrated by the lack in our lives, feeling trapped by seeing none of our manifestations come to fruition, none of our desires satisfied, none of our wishes granted, it may be helpful to take a big step back out of the mind and remember: Source does not speak in form.
By form, I mean the way things appear in this material plane of existence. Individuals, locations, events, actions — these are forms. They are how energies (read: relationships) appear on the material plane. To Source (/the Universe/God/what have you), the forms are meaningless. They are like a language Source doesn’t speak, a dimension Source does not perceive.
The language Source does speak is Energy, and Source functions as a mirror for energy.
Say, for example, you want to be loved. You put out the energy of love towards a particular person. But that person does not love you in return, causing you to feel anger, pain, powerlessness, and perhaps a sense of “What gives, Universe? Where’s the love I put out?” Then, you’re putting out the energy of powerlessness.
But here’s the thing: That love did flow back to you, but Source does not give a shit if that energy flows back to you from that same person. Why? Because that person serving as the object of your love, in Source’s perception, is not even perceived. To Source, everything is, and the kinds of distinctions we see between individuals or spaces or times or objects in the material plane are not perceived at all. To Source, when you give love to a particular person, you simply give love. Likewise, when Source functions as a mirror, you receive love, but it may not come from anything like the “form” you put your energy towards.
One of the biggest barriers to the satisfaction of our needs and the lived experience of our positive energies returning to us is that we fixate on form. We are obsessed with where it appears things come from. We say we want equal give and take, but we only want that in a particular way from this particular relationship with this particular person. We want acknowledgement and credit, but we only want it from this particular sphere of our lives and these particular individuals.
But Source literally can’t work in form. It does not speak form, because it does not perceive form. You receive what you give, but Source doesn’t align it to your perception of where it should come from in the material plane, because Source does not have any knowledge of the material plane as you perceive it.
When we break the cycle of fixating on form, we begin to notice how the energies we put out come back to us from all kinds of directions. Maybe today, the love we put out towards our beloved was received back from a friendly dog. Maybe, from the sun shining on us just when we were getting chilly. Maybe from a stranger, from a postcard, from a tree. The form does not matter.
The more we allow ourselves to receive our positive energies back from all directions, without constructing any mental barriers to what receiving that energy has to look like, the more time we will spend feeling those positive energies flowing towards us.
If you find yourself stuck in a cycle of feeling powerless due to a fixation on form, you could try this:
- Think through the situation that is causing you distress because your desires are not being met.
- Describe the energy you want to receive. You could identify it as a word (Love, Acceptance, Happiness, Trust, Respect, etc.) or it could come through as simply a feeling. As long as you know what you’re talking about.
- Take a moment to deeply feel that energy. What does (insert desired energy) feel like to you?
- Give that energy absolutely everywhere you can, to everyone you can, in every way you can.
- Spend a day (or several) writing down every encounter in which you felt that energy flowing towards you. Be vigilant for it. Notice it even in the smallest or most unexpected places.
When we give up on our Ego-mind’s fixation on things taking particular forms in this material plane, living in this universe can begin to feel a lot more malleable, and magical.
