“What we can’t express runs our life.”
As I’ve shared previously, life unfolds in alternating rhythms of yin and yang, male and female, giving and receiving, action and reflection and between even and odd numbers. Around the Equinox of March 20th (see below), the inward, nurturing and love energy of the 2 cycle moves into the outward focused, intelligent ‘doing’ energy of the 3 cycle.
The 3 Energy
Every number system, religion and culture has at its core the holy trinity – will, love and mind of God; life, love and light; Father, Son and Holy Spirit; Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma… These energies correspond directly to the physical, emotional and mental aspects of the individual.
The 3 energy is the fruit of union of the one and two. It is the energy of expansion, expression, activity, art and the joy of living.
From a higher perspective, this is the intelligence energy of expression according to universal laws and principles. It is a manifesting energy as the initiating, wilful ONE energy combines with the loving, integrative TWO energy to create the THREE energy of clear self evaluation and intelligent application.
The 3 is an energy of truth, wisdom and authenticity. If it is not fully integrated or understood, it can be experienced as pride, judgement, busyness, impracticality, manipulation, self pity, being a workaholic, being paranoid and feeling a victim.
Coincidence (or not) the 3 energy cusps on the same day as the Equinox on March 20th. Those of us in the northern hemisphere are emerging from a reflective, nurturing darker winter time. In many traditions, the first day of Spring marks the start of a new year. It is a time of clearing the slower energies of the winter and preparing for a new cycle of growth. It is a time of awakening and recommitting to life as spring brings in energy and warmth. It is a celebration of being born again and resurrected from the dead.
At this same time, in astrological terms, the sun moves into Aries – a sign representing energy, drive, initiative and motivation. There is a restlessness and an openness to change and new experiences. This is very similar to the 3 energy.
It is quite amazing when natural order and cycles fit together.
How do we intentionally shift from a 2 loving energy to the 3 intellect energy? Consider shifting your focus and actions from:
- planning and ideas to execution and action
- imagination to basics
- inner work to outer work
- caution to creative expression
- intuition to rational thinking
- simple to more complex
- people to business
- rhythmic to sporadic
Be aware of the different experiences as you make the above shifts in perspective. Be open to the cycles of life and the cycles within cycles.
Where is the life we’ve lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we’ve lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we’ve lost in information?
