The Power of Reciprocity

“The Universe abhors a vacuum”.   The first time I heard this was when I was watching that wonderful breakthrough movie The Secret.  I thought I had died and gone to heaven when that movie came out!  As an Indigo and an Empath, and as someone who has always been close to the Angelic realms, I knew in my soul that so many of the teachings in The Secret were correct.

When I heard the statement “The Universe abhors a vacuum” I could hear the truth of it ring in the air around me.  I felt it in my body.  I felt it in my soul.  And I knew I’d better learn this statement on a deep level.  So I asked my Guardian Angel Galadriel (yes, that’s her name, I knew it before Lord of the Rings movie came out!) if she could help me understand the important of Universal balance and reciprocity and how best to achieve it.

Galadriel came to me in a whoosh of gold and blue light, like she does, and said, “The Universe requires balance because all that exists is balanced on an ever rotating sphere within a sphere within a sphere, etc.  Without balance it would all implode and cease to exist.“ 

My first though was how delicate and fragile it all was.  But Galadriel said, “Yes, it is fragile, and beautiful, and it is also designed as a tool for learning.  You brave souls who come into the third dimension to don a human form, and to experience through the human senses, must learn the power of reciprocity.   To achieve balance is one of the most important lessons you must learn.   

Every breath you breathe in, you must breathe one out, to stay alive.  Everything you put in your mouth must be processed, and excreted, to stay alive.  Everything you take from Mother Earth must be replaced, to keep her alive.  Every smile you receive from a stranger must be shared, to keep the goodness alive.  Every good deed one does for you must be returned to keep the kindness alive.  Everything you learn must be shared to keep the wisdom alive. 

Look at the places on your earth where selfishness, separateness and greed are in action.  Those places are dying.  The flora and fauna are dying.  The air is thick and heavy.  Water stands putrid in puddles.  The human life form is sick and lethargic.

Life cannot happen in a vacuum. “

I asked Galadriel if there was something I could do to be a better person in this part of my life.  She laughed her precious Angel laugh and said, “Yes, keep shining your Light, even in the dark places.  Don’t judge another, see each being as a part of God and Goddesses creation.  Love yourself.  And Love others.  You might not like them, but when you see them as part of the whole, it is easier to love them, because they are God/Goddess in their created form.  Maybe, they are holding a part of the Universal balance, and you just can’t see what it is at that moment.  You live in a world of duality, and this requires balance to continue.  Or not.  You are always shifting and changing and flowing up or down the creative spiral.  Remember, heaven is created in your heart and in your inner vision.  Spiritually centered people continue to flow upward in the spiral.  It is not better or worse than another, it is simply your souls calling.  Someday you will leave this spiral for another experience in another Universe, and there you will learn more amazing things.  Be well, sweet souls, your journey is a Sacred gift to us all.  Blessed are we that see the flow of the All.”
