Are you enjoying the show yet?
There are so many things, both positive and negative, that have been surfacing here on earth–the elections, of course, and the negatively charged atmosphere around it. There is our planet, Gaia, and her crazy changing weather patterns complete with extreme droughts, tornadoes, hurricanes, and earthquakes. Concurrently, some of us have been experiencing the most enjoyable weather and have had many opportunities to delight in the magic that life can offer. The gamut is here being played out for us. Since I believe that we are each and collectively divinely directed and Spirit wants only the best for us, the corollary follows that each of us is exactly where we each need to be in this time and geographical location; it is the most fertile ground for our best and highest growth and purpose.
During these erratic times, I have had many wonderful exchanges with friends and acquaintances through which I have been shown how being in your heart, of holding the light on the planet, is an actual energy field. One lesson came from a workshop I attended a few weeks ago focused on the spiritual/healing side of martial arts. I enjoyed it immensely and learned a lot; however, the most wonderful aspect of the group was the feeling of lightness I had when I left, realizing that for the whole three hours no one had mentioned anything political. The difference in the energy was palpable! The energy/vibration of the ugliness and heaviness of the political arena in which we have been embroiled that I became aware of that night, demonstrated to me its reality and power. It’s not just a mental construct; it’s an energy field that can hold you down and drain you to your core! I was reminded again the importance of recognizing and understanding the energy fields that we are dealing with at this time on our planet and consciously choosing the high vibrating ones.When others around us are in the vibrations of hopelessness and despair, it is our job to keep our own spirits above the fray, and stay in the highest vibrating energy field of love.
What it takes is to, first, simply become aware of your vibrational level at the time then, two, consciously raise the energy with your intention. [There are many techniques for this, but you can try this: pray to your guardian angel for help to stay in the field of love, then breathe deeply, release your breath with a huff, smile, then breathe normally. Repeat until you feel the truth in your smile. Repeat this as often as necessary]; three, limit your exposure to the media and other negativity that can pull you down.
One of the sweetest things that has been emerging from the fog left in the aftermath of the fear and hate spewed during the elections (on both sides) is the feeling that we all need to be aware of the pain people carry just underneath the hate. By doing this we can more readily open our hearts to each other. I’ve seen this sentiment mentioned in interviews on TV and on NPR, in blogs, on FB and other social media. Forgiveness is the key—which doesn’t mean that you agree with or that their actions are okay, but it is unhooking yourself from the pain of that energy field. It alsos mean that for any action you may choose to take in your life regarding the world is coming from your center of strength and clarity of love. If we’re to follow the tenets of any of the major religions, love is the key to healing and to movement out of the mucky dark energy of hate and separation.Love your neighbor as yourself. Love your enemy. Can we do it? It’s the next Big Step in our spiritual evolution.
For me, I’m in observation mode as far as what will happen. I often feel like I’m watching a science fiction movie. Try watching from a detached point of view without the fear part playing its controlling chorus, and you might find that it’s actually fascinating to see it play out. From this perspective it is possible see the puzzle pieces beginning to come together. We’re not yet sure what’s being created here, but I do think this whole “down the rabbit hole” situation is being orchestrated by Spirit–and it ain’t gonna look like I personally might have imagined.
The evidence is clear that this is a time of great change/upheaval. It is a time for cleaning out the infection and pus of our collective wounds, something that must be done before healing can begin. And that part can be painful! The process that we are seeing happening all over the world of governments collapsing and the global climate breaking down is a sign to me that the light is winning. That may seem like a contradiction, but yet the old parts, the shadow energies, are no longer hiding–that is how darkness wins, by staying in disguise so as not to have to reveal itself. But the darkness is being revealed over and over again in many different forms so it can no longer hide and escape the healing light. As a result, the needed corrections will take place and the new earth can grow out of the fray, like the phoenix rising from the fire.
So are you enjoying the show? This IS what we came here for, you know. It’s time for all of us to consciously claim the part we were designed to play in this crazy cosmic theater– to be a placeholder of light on the grid of our physical reality. As one friend stated, holding the light is not very glamorous–it’s more like plumbing. But glamorous or not, that is our job. We are agents of the Universe, of Spirit, of Mother/Father/God. We are here to witness this tremendous change and to hold the light. It is our duty, our agreement as souls to do this, but be aware that we are being constantly challenged and will be over and over again as the shadow side is trying to pull us down, struggling to win the battle of light and dark. So in the meantime we need to do our own inner work to unify our own rifts. And this is the greatest challenge. It is time to heal our hearts so our inner spirits will be reflected in the outer world. This is the only path to peace and the time for that healing is now. To heal your heart is to heal the world!
Enjoy your holidays!
