What's the name of those whappy hand things that are gooey and you get them in machines outside grocery stores and you hold onto one end and hurl the other one towards a wall or window and it extends impossibly far then whap sticks wherever it lands? I had a vision of one of those just before bed, and my whole life flashed before my eyes.
I just had the clearest sense of being whapped onto the wrong wall, energetically, even though I was pretending otherwise. I was SAYING with my words and intentions that my metaphorical slappy whappy hand was connected to the positive future, and that my life was carrying me to there, as I followed it's sticky rope arm, the reality was that my whappy hand was more likely on my frustration and doubts about the situation and my life was following the rope arm to situations that mirrored that essential doubt and frustration.
All day in client sessions the metaphor was so fun to play with! I realized that people were giving lip service to their dreams, while holding their attention, beliefs and activated energy on stuff in that area that they didn't like much and certainly didn't want more of and then were baffled to see their dreams feeling far away. Their whappy hand is on what they don't want and their life keeps confirming that but instead of coming to turns with that, reeling in the old whap hand, and tossing it out again, they just keep pretending its on what they want.
I think we do this because we've got withered dream muscles. It's like we've been in hyper drive for eons and we suddenly wake up and can barely lift up our imagination for a second before we faint back into our space bed. Most of us have some level of confusion about our ability to change our reality and very few of us have really gone to the dream gym and gotten ripped on working out those creator muscles. We often do the laziest thing, look at what is, give it all our attention and then lay there on our space bed, sad, and keep manifesting more of what is.
It takes energy, willingness, and a thirst for the deep to cast out a different line. It also takes no small measure of hutzpah, a willingness to be wrong, nay, even a delight in being an amateur, and playful attitude towards the very fabric of life, and a willingness to find real joy in the fun of regrowing those creator muscles. Then the struggles that normally send us spinning out, into blame, into unconscious busyness become illuminators for where we actually have our energetic line connected to and can become invaluable in course correcting, or re-whappin', as they say.
I did a scan this morning in my meditation for where my whappy hand currently is in love and discovered it wasn't connected to any vibration or reality that I want more of and it felt amazing to let my meditation center on the joy and harmony and deep incredible fun and sexiness of a thriving poly pod and I suddenly saw the group of us flying around the world and being silly and deeply intimate and having enormous, nearly unbelievable amplification of our personal joy in our togetherness.
As I dreamed that I FELT the whap of resonance as the line of my attention solidly connected with a reality that is resonant with my deepest self. It felt warm, bright, like a thousand grandmas baking cookies and bread and churning butter and inviting me in to tea by the fire while they sing softly, and pet my hair. I just purr and curl open into the joy of having found the vibration of Being Exactly Where and How I Wanna Be.
The Break Down:
if an area of your life isn't feeling resonant with your deepest self then you're not whappy handed onto the resonance of your true dream for that area. You've lost the connection and your whappy hand has drifted off to some unintentional location.
You can re-whap onto the true resonance so easily, just pull off the gas of noticing, lamenting, complaining about the bits you don't like and let that momentum dwindle, then invite your mind in quiet moments to just daydream, taste, delight in the parts of your dream that are truly Grandma Cookie Warm for you.
If I were to ask you, "take me into your dream, emotionally, viscerally, literally" can you answer immediately? If not then you know you're not really whapped onto the heart of it. You're probably whapped onto the doubt or belief or judgement that you can or should have it. If you're really whapped onto it, it's like sitting in a room and being asked questions about the person you're sitting with. If you can't answer the questions you're not really in the room with them. Go get in the room with them! Happy whappin'.
Love from the Deep,
