7 Gateways to Inner Wisdom

Reconnect to body, earth and creative spirit

Message from the World Channel

Process Work practitioners pay attention to synchronicities, looking for personal meaning in apparent coincidences…

Back when I was working on the original business plan for 7 Gateways to Inner Wisdom, trying to find the the right people and the right words, crunch the right numbers, and mould the vision of my heart into a shape that might convince the world and myself that yes, this could work, I would sometimes feel doubtful and disheartened.

On one of these occasions, I awarded myself a break, deciding to bake some ginger cookies. I love ginger, its paradoxical combination of zingy heat and reassuring sweetness. But I fussed and fiddled with dough and heart-shaped cookie cutters, getting flustered, sticky and exasperated. On this day, even the simple task of baking cookies seemed to overwhelm me. I stared at the misshapen lumps on the cookie tray, and felt like crying. Why was nothing going right? I sighed, and slid the tray into the oven. I decided not to bother trying to shape the second batch of cookies; I just rolled the dough into a sausage and sliced it into rounds like my Nanna used to do. At least they would taste good.

As I manoeuvred the disks of cookie dough from the board onto an oven tray, an interesting thing happened. The dough rounds lost their roundness, falling into odd shapes. I sighed … but then I noticed something. They had formed into hearts. Almost perfect hearts. I smiled. Okay, universe. I got the message. You’ve been trying too hard.
