Emergency

Posted in Uncategorized on April 11th, 2009 by carol – 2 Comments

Spring is a time of growth, rebirth, and emerging life. On a personal level, we can struggle coming from the introverted darkness of winter into the emergence of Spring. The word emergence is a root word of “emergency”. In our culture, this word has taken on a negative connotation which inspires a sense of crisis.

What is “emergency”? Websters defines it as being “a sudden, generally unexpected occurrence or set of circumstances demanding immediate action”. If we look at the emergence of new life as a situation demanding our immediate attention, then we take the opportunity as it arises to answer the call to grow.

This doesn’t mean we always do, however. Many of us feel new growth and it does inspire fear or crisis. We don’t know what’s popping up,…what we might be required to do in response to our new needs or new sense of self.

If we look at emergency workers for direction, we might see a clear headed assessment taking place,…and prioritization of what needs attention most and first.  As the immediate discomfort or danger subsides, we can begin to make a plan for attention to details which lead to correction, healing, and regrowth. Be it the cells of the body, a structure that has burnt down, or the management of  extreme emotions,…each response is designed to take the system from “disaster” to healing.

When we feel something emerging and it feels scary, it’s okay to say, “I’m afraid. This is fear I’m experiencing”, but we can also stay attentive and attend to the needs that arise around our emergence. Maybe there is someone we want to talk to. Maybe we want to move our bodies or create something. And if there is something emerging, it really only requires that we be witness and take note of what comes up.

A state of emergency does require attention, but that is really all we need to give it until a course of action becomes clear. We don’t usually have a “wait and see” attitude about emergency, but when it comes to our personal growth, being witness and observing is the best medicine.
