"Holding Space"

Holding Space.
The eye-of-the-storm-vibration...
the keeper of the keys:
to peace...
to compassion...
to a higher call.
A higher vibration.
In all the angst of asking
"What the Bleep...am I doing here!?"
The answer comes, saying:
You are holding space.
You are doing sacred work
by simply being there...
Hold the vigil.
Hold the Space.
Attune wherever you are
to the Higher Octave...
with your
Conscious Presence.
Your sacred-yes* to
Spirit's assignment:
Holding the Space...
the Sacred Vibration...
for the good of all..
is your Work, Cheryl.
Good job.
The term "sacred yes" is from Rev. Michael Beckwith - one of my long-time spiritual teachers.
"Work is love made visible" ~Kahlil Gibran
