Coffee... Waking up!

A friend posted this morning on facebook: " I think my cup of coffee was too strong this morning...i'm wired!! (time to make use of the energy and get something done)"

It was a wake up call for me... and brought me right out of my winter cave!

I've been 'struggling' this winter with low energy, dull senses, slow wit... winter doldrums... feeling really disconnected... SAD... whatever you'd like to call it...  for me, labels used to be irritating, until I realized that they sometimes hold a clue, a piece of info that may lead me to a solution (if one is needed). Getting off topic and back to coffee... My organic blend, organic surgar, even organic half & half when I had it, has not been doing its job!!!! About 3 weeks ago, I gave serious consideration to cutting out coffee completely.  (hint: surgery may not always be the first, best solution).

So, I've tapered off, using some energy medicine tools to neutralize what's been coming up about 'giving up' something I like so much!  Here was my spontaneous comment... after a few mintues... the path this awareness was creating... the dots that were connecting... needed more room that a short facebook comment... so here it is. It was an amazing journey! Turns out I was feeling like I had had to give up much more than coffee in the last few years!

Hi friend... Coffee was always my first thing each day. In the passed few months, tho' I'm right with you. "They" say coffee is grounding... but I wonder.
In homeopathy, there is theory (fact to some) that coffee can negate/neutralize a remedy, even days after you first take it. As (more than ever!) energetic beings, I'm feeling like the energy of coffee (that wired feeling) is perhaps our 'wiring' getting a bit 'fried' so we are no longer 'in the flow' and when that happens, its an opportunity to remember what feeling 'disconnected' is like. We feel the need to push thru it, get going, do something. Good for me! it used to get me to moving and burning off the cream & sugar (even the organic kind)... It's a great tool! But, like Kamala  used to teach in 4Forces... everything has its functional and dysfunctional side... my old Nana used to say... what ever gets 'em into church... awareness, understanding, balance come to each of us in unique and individual ways.
Thanks for this 'set up'... I'll be tappin' (EFT) as I continue to let go of my own addictions to coffee, my need to disconnect from what is uncomfortable in my life and my  unwillingness to let go of things that seem to have power over me.  Wow! there's a wakeup! the root of this one may be about feeling powerless... tap tap tap...
In gratitude for all that is...   Shamballa On! if you like.
