In the Relationships seminar and Repatterning book, Chloe Wordsworth sets out the importance of a concept of Entrainment. She writes “Entrainment is a natural law – an inherent necessity to pulse together. … When a system is entrained we feel in rhythm with each other and oneself. She goes on to remind us that this principle is so powerful that spiritual teachers have emphasized the importance of the company we keep.
We entrain with our classmates, colleagues at work or on a special team. We entrain with our church group, our state, our town.and any number of groups. When we join a group or belong, we are also entrained with it values and principles and the agreements of the group.
We also entrain with the country where we live, and have citizenship. Special holidays like the July 1st Canada Day here in my country of Canada or the July 4th Independance day in the USA remind us of our connection to our country and the values we have as a group. It is so easy to take for granted, and only realize what we have once it is gone.
Are you positively entrained for the country where you live?
What does your country mean for you? What are the values you hold dear? What makes you proud to hold up the flag, to say that you are a part of this group? More over do you resonate with the positive qualities of your country? When a group is entrained the accomplish so much more, and every individual has more energy.
My grandparents came to Canada in the mid 1920’s. They had a hard life as farmers but always appreciated what they had – the opportunity to own land and build a house, to sell their produce, to openly practice their religion, to celebrate their customs and their beliefs. Many of the immigrant families I grew up with frequently used the phrase ‘It’s a free country’ to humorously indicate acceptance of differences in a conversation. They resonated with the qualities of freedom and mutual respect having experienced quite the opposite in other places.
During this holiday week, you will see all kinds of advertising, promotions, the use of traditional colors and motiffs. Know they all carry the frequency of this country. What is embedded in this agreement for you?
This is a great time to reflect on a relationship agreement you may have taken for granted. Ask yourself… what do you appreciate most about your country and its’ core values? How does your relationship to your country nurture you? How are you nuturing your relationship? Consider a self-session repatterning to strengthen your orientation, entrainment and what you value most in this relationship of citizen.
May good things happen for you as a result!
Happy Canada Day!
Happy Independance Day!
With love and light
