In healing language, the word conduit means to channel energy to allow movement and change. The word conduit is a noun that means a channel for conveying water or other fluid. In Latin, it means to bring together.
Come together right now.
Being a reliable conduit is one way to help others. The art of healing sheds light on those who are by the presence alone powerful enough to be a conduit for healing and change.
Some of these conduits for healing were Buddha, Gandhi, Mother Theresa, Jesus, and many others.
As a conduit with presence and with the use of touch channeling energy to remove blocks, the connection between two people happens. Contact occurs every day and all the time. You do it and may not even realize it.
A powerful and useful way to be a fantastic conduit that all people can learn to be is by listening. We each have stories to tell, and we all want someone to hear. To look vaguely may not be enough, but it is where we must learn the language of understanding that makes the difference.
The diplomat or person that is the glue in a group is usually a conduit. They communicate all the messages from individuals in a way that can be heard by each person individually. An essential part of socialization is as you know, communication.
Sadly communication breakdown leads many relationships into challenges, stalemates, or ending altogether.
Below the surface so much is communicated that requires awareness; it is no wonder in the modern day with what is said on the surface between people ever goes beyond cordial.
Speaking Your Truth
I love those who say it how it is; it is a breath of fresh air. We are from New Orleans, born and bred. We come from stock that has been here since before the civil war. We say is it like it is.
Who let the dogs out…yeah you let them out they are going to run around like they are supposed to and investigate the world.
If you don’t cultivate through investigation, you stay locked inside. And this hurts. And you want someone to hear about your hurt so you can validate that you are not crazy.
Some people are in so much pain they either can’t communicate or jumble their communication, and it ends up misconstrued or misinterpreted. Pain breaks down relationships and communication. The strain represents a breaking away from the person’s truth.
Being a considerate conduit means seeing the person’s pain and softly leading them to see it also. No matter how long they need to be alone, staying with the person long enough so, they can return to standing in their truth.
A conduit/diplomat takes an approach to make people function at a higher level. That conduit can provide knowledge, safety, food, healing energy, financial support, a boost in morale, direction, stability, a roof, and above all, is consistent.
The reason consistency is key to being an excellent conduit is that trust becomes established over time. What is more valuable than being able to trust yourself? After that, it is all downhill.
Kids need to know the routine and the same faces for safety and recognition of self from caretakers. We are creatures of habit. And we have a habit of trusting what remains consistent and treats us well.
Holes in Your Game
Imagine that you, as a conduit and for example’s sake, are a pipe that has holes. Even though the energy or water would arrive eventually, the water pressure would be relatively low and would result in higher bills than necessary. Having holes is not an ideal situation.
Now take a minute and evaluate yourself as a self-caring conduit that supports all aspects of your life? Do you want to be a good scenario for a support system, a channel that is you? Where are your holes?
The body is the conduit. You are it. And you came into life solid; however, life happened and created holes.
Where are you consistent in your life taking care of the things that make you stronger, healthier, and happier? And where and why do holes appear from time to time?
People can be like the holes in a pipe when they are not consistent. Do you have a friend that shows up when they need something to fill their gaps, however, is not always consistent in their presence in your life?
When someone is seeking a change; it is essential to be a robust, consistent conduit. The person usually is in the process of letting go of something that is preventing or delaying a needed shift in their life. The conduit cannot leak out any information shared and must listen intently to hear what is going on on a deeper level.
We are all and can all be conduits for others. That is how you can help others make the jump into hyperspace. How could you help them to make the inevitable change?
People change as quickly as they have safe support, consistent presence of love, and the understanding that the conduit will hold together when things get tough. Being in the presence of someone who is grounded and a reliable channel yields an opportunity for change. Being around someone stable makes us feel more substantial. We mirror their chance to be more.
When you build a house in the woods and find a solid boulder dug into the earth, this makes a natural wall. Protection from the weather. People who are easily swayed by the circumstances of life are not a solid boulder from where you can rest behind or beside. They are not grounded.
A conduit must be grounded to offer the global support a person requires to move past challenges.
Awareness is needed to hear in conversation, see in actions, and feel in energy the person’s communication holistically. A global and holistic review of the individual are synonyms in this case.
We All Have A Story
From a shamanic perspective, we are a circle of experience. Persisting into the future and wrapping around to meet the past, we are leading into this moment. For the modern understanding of being a reliable conduit, it means seeing all the parts and pieces of the person presenting layered obstacles and conditions. It can take time and experience to look at globally.
Eye contact, moving your energy forward into the space of the person, and the expansion of empathy all offer a person the chance for their story to be heard. Sometimes people tell the same story a thousand times because they may feel that not one time were they heard.
Within the words of the story are patterns. There are actions of body and intonation in strings of words that indicated more. The way their energy opens and closes while communicating are clues.
The installation of clues comes in many forms. Mostly in actions yet subliminally in words. The types of conduits out there are like the levels of awareness a person can obtain through experience.
The conduit is as reliable as the work that was done to create it. For the person to plug holes, repair, and self-grow, the review of the events of life that shaped and formed the conduit is necessary — the journey to understanding the self.
Growing and the Mind
The growing never stops. The actions of the body are “tells” for the inconsistencies of the mind. The back and forth communication is profound. The various healing modalities offer clues and guidance to understand how you, as a human, can improve.
The body is the conduit, and the mind is what opens or closes the holes. The intention in mind is a deep subject because the body is designed to keep you alive and to heal always. So why does the body break down?
How you think or have the absence of critical thinking will eventually affect your body. If you decide you are going to be ill because of x,y, or z reason you are promoting the illness you may have never had.
When your attitude is that you are healthy and think in a manner that promotes your wellbeing, your immune system will respond accordingly.
The body is always listening. Designed as a survival suit, is your best friend; it cannot lie to you. Although easily damaged, the body can repair with a healthy mind.
Faith Is An Attitude
My grandfather told me when I was young; faith is a gift that not everyone receives. I did not understand this right away; however, today I do. My translation of this wisdom is, having the right attitude is not something everyone receives.
It is all about the correct attitude. It is mind over matter. Yoda knows what he is talking about with moving stones with his mind. The approach itself is a conduit to change.
The mind is active always. In meditation, the activity of the brain slows, and neural pathways made for higher functioning. More efficiency is available through this form of cultivation.
Attitude and the endless information the mind receives have something to do with each other.
We, as people are constantly receiving information. Think about this. How much input each minute, much less for the whole day or week, are you exposed to?
You cannot digest all of it because it is too much for your brain to process. It is not consistent, and it is a mix of many subjects, topics, and areas of life. You take in what is the most relevant and supposedly discard the rest.
However, you’re subconscious brain records all information. You have logged into your body and instinctual self. That means you are accumulating information (not knowledge) that is not processed.
What happens to this unprocessed information? Information becomes stored in your cells and in some cases, your organs. You are, after all, as am I an organism.
The definition of an organism is, the material structure of a single life form or a whole with interdependent parts likened to a living being. How would you balance in a review of the elements not processed to those which are processed?
Another way to ask this is how many people take on the self in determining or questioning why they do and say the things they say and do? Versus just going on living mindlessly into their desires, goals, and addictions. The answer is not as important as what will you do?
The world is evolving, and people have access to information, and most people want to grow. Therefore there will always be people to support.
To be of assistance, first, support the self in becoming a suitable conduit.
With time your cultivation will be able to hold enough water so that you can help others. You will be helping others to sift through their sediment without taking it on. Grounding the residue with your presence and allowing this individual to make it on through to the other side.
They get to release the old experiences by flowing their story through you.
Life is meant to be understood. To understand the needs of another is to understand the self. When one can understand oneself, the necessities of thy neighbor will be clear.
We are all brothers and sisters in some sense, and everyone is undoubtedly trying to make sense of life. It makes more sense to look inward rather than blame outward. It also makes sense to stand in the light of truth, and this is not always silent. However, peace is our aim.
May clear vision be bestowed upon those who journey into the self-understanding of connection. These people are grounding into the earth and opening up to the heavens. To be blessed is to be the strong conduit from which the father and the mother may meet to celebrate the child and from here the people shall know love.
With great respect, I write to promote our collective home, our minds, bodies, and consciousness. Our vessel, with which can transport us everywhere with the use of our mind. May it become known to those who will use it wisely.
