In Star Trek lore, the life support system is something that is treasured, appreciated, and respected....other resources are pulled for aiding and assisting new civilizations out there, in that “final frontier”, before they are tapped from life support.
The habit at hand and heart
What would happen if they "just did it" and pulled from life support? Instead of training their ensigns? Instead of requesting support and collaboration?
I think, personally, there would be far more Crewman 6's.
And that would be a complete waste... of time, effort, energy, attention, and care.
Life support would ultimately drain... and that could, because I'm no expert, it could take a toll on other systems in the overall ship.
See where I'm going here?
I'm definitely wondering where I have been giving from my core life support system.
And I've been seeking out other systems that are available for this - my - human, physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, energetic "ship"... which could be called a Being, here on this planet.
I've got one for us.
Just in case you have been draining your own life support system, unintentionally or not.
There's a system called Overflow. You’ll know pretty quickly how “full” it is, or whether it’s run completely dry.
It can also be known as our Wisdom System.
No matter how you identify it, this very system was designed to be shared from.
Leaving your own dear Life Support intact, full, and lush… and available for replenishment and more.
Learning to share from our Wisdom / Overflow Systems is about noticing. Awareness. Curiosity.
It’s most assuredly not about self-shaming, self-blaming, or self-bullying… it’s all about welcoming in new options.
And it feels like spaciousness.
Not like you’re trapped with your proverbial “back against a wall”, as a client mentioned this morning.
It’s learnable. It’s quiet, possible, easy, and available to precisely YOU.
If you’ve made it to the end of this message, you also have enough time to learn this skill long term… big concepts and possibilities in little moments.
In a space of delightful, welcoming, and nurturing support.
Yes, even about grief, loss, and shadow seasons.
Connect with me more directly for new forms of support or sign up for my Going Inside program… this is where we actively, and semi-privately (meaning, in a small group), overhaul and replenish your life support system from the inside out.
Up to you now…. If it’s in your pleasure, “Make it so.”

Thinking of you -
PS - I am unaffiliated with the Star Trek franchise.
PPS - AND I do fricking love it all.
