The Game Board of Reality
26 Year Olds, Seniors, Emotions, Global Adoption
Articles - Week of February 18-24, 2007
The game board of reality is played on many levels for the same reason anyone plays a game, for the experience and emotions connected to it. Planet Earth has swept across the game board of planet Earth, leaving us to reflect, become aware of what is next, heal, balance, and wait to move on.
26 Year Olds :: Young adults travel the game board of planet Earth. My client theme this week features 26-year olds, male and female. Reality is about finishing school and traveling. There is a desire to do additional studies abroad or take a job away from home for a year or two, perhaps joining the peace corp. Some have savings set aside for travel after working the past few years. Teachers are looking for one-year positions abroad in English speaking countries, or to teach ESL (English as a Second Language). Some clients have families abroad, and are going to spend a year with them, working locally. If you could get away for a year, and earn some money, would you go? In the past, people joined the military to that end, but not anymore. Most join to get an education and can't wait to get out.
Shuttle Board :: A client asked, "Do senior citizens become set in their ways and not feel a need to heal issues?" Seniors are no different than any other age group. They are feeling a need to find balance, and sense, like everyone else in this grid reality, something on the horizon that perhaps they can't identify, and may attribute to old age or that they will cross over soon. Many seniors try to make up for past failures with family members, often giving up a lifetime of bad habits and asking for forgiveness.
Emotional Board :: Bored of the Games of Emotion? People are feeling burned out and disconnected. When they think about any kind of long term investment in time and energy, they rethink their priorities. Each day, more people intuit the end of the loops of time in their decision making. Always go within and tap into your gut feelings. It's all part of the process.
Global Adoption and Karma :: Couples often adopt children from other countries. Sometimes the history of the biological parents is known, often it is not. Obviously the more you know, the better, especially in terms of the emotional and physical health of the biological parents as most of one's life experiences goes to their DNA code. Why was the child given up for adoption? There are practical questions one needs to ask, when trying to fill the heart with love. Most difficult I have found, are couples where one parent wants the adopted child and the other does not want to parent at all, their own child or someone else's. Does the adopted child have a karmic connection with the parent who wanted them? How does 'abuse' factor into all of this?
Email from Ruth
Dear Ellie, I wandered across your site while searching for pocket watches and found it quite interesting. I have to comment on the "Global Game Board" regarding adopted children with little or no knowledge of their backgrounds. As an adoptee (as are my siblings) and having had no knowledge of my past (nor did my parents), I searched for and found my birth family at age 45 for medical reasons. The experience was fascinating to say the least. First there was much serendipity in play or I would never have made a connection with my half-sister, who I now keep in touch with regularly. As a very young child I had precognitive dreams about my roots which proved true.
There are numerous other "coincidences" as well - both for myself and my two siblings such as interests, skills, and mannerisms - all of which are apparently genetically encoded. I say this because I'm quite different from my parents (German Catholic Depression Era) but somewhere close to identical to my birthmother (who I've never met). I was taught to think graciously of the woman who gave birth to me and am extremely grateful for my parents. We are a very close and loving family and I hope to be able to one day proudly introduce my family to my half-sister!
What I wish to express is that we are all so uniquely different yet so intricately connected that I think everyone we cross paths with plays a part in our lives. Some of these meetings last a moment and some a lifetime but none less important than the other. I know that these young mothers are simply falling in love with a child that was truly meant to be theirs. It's the same story my mother has told me as far back as I am able to recall. I know there is much mystery and many questions regarding adoption and I hope I was able to offer a different view than most.
I shall be following your fascinating site frequently.
