Nana Buluku, She Rests to Create
(From the Earth Warriors Oracle, Alana Fairchild)
“Your energy is a precious resource, and there are ways of being that can enhance it, amplifying it and replenishing it. Give yourself sufficient rest, and you shall find the way forward more effortless. Explore the lifestyle that grows your inner resources, rather than requiring constant exertion and exhaustion to accomplish an endless list of external pursuits. You need this shift in being now because you are ready to accomplish more. For this to take place, there needs to be less effort and more wisdom. Trust and value what can be accomplished through rest.”
To move more easily through the current earth changes and the energy blasts from the sun, rest is essential. These various energy upgrades need time to be processed by your body. This calls for extra rest and sleep time to avoid becoming burnt out. Creativity in all aspects requires an abundance of internal energy on the spiritual level.
It is common to feel tired after any highly creative activity, even if all you have done is mentally work through a problem or challenge. If you are not used to the higher rates of vibrational energy available now, you will likely feel very drained. Taking a time out, either physically or mentally is essential for you now.
Nana Buluku is the African Grandmother Creatrix, the supreme feminine creative principle. She created the Universe, then rested. The intersection of rest and extraordinary creative powers is repeated in numerous spiritual traditions from varied cultures around the world. When you are filled with creative energy, it seems counter to rest when all you want to do is fulfill your life purpose. The conscious use of deep rest allows us to connect with the divine creative genius.
You will get more done by being quiet and taking time to rest than by pushing yourself through periods of intense fatigue. It is necessary to renew your inner energy to continue easy access your guides and higher self on a level where you can receive the information and inspiration you need.
May you be blessed with abundant creative energy
and the wisdom to use it for the benefit of all.
