This weekend we had a New Moon in the harmony-loving sign of Libra, but you’d be forgiven for thinking we’ve just gone through a super-powered Full Moon! There was (and still is) so much emotional energy in the air triggering torrents of anger, sadness and grief for many. Others may have felt a vague discomfort, feeling anxious or irritable for no apparent reason.
Aside from any astrological influences, one has to wonder if the Sun is finally doing its magnetic pole flip – scientists predicted a 3-4 month window back in August – only it’s a little hard to find out with the NASA website and majority of NASA staff not working at the moment due to the Government shutdown!
However, that ‘wondering’ may just be our human minds searching for some sort of logical, rational explanation for how so many of us are feeling right now when the truth is there is no one logical or rational explanation. There are multiple explanations within an overall evolutionary explanation. We are now officially living in the Shift between an old way of living and being, and a new way of living and being. If it feels like there is no solid ground to stand on right now, it’s because in many ways there isn’t!
So much is in the process of flux and change as everything goes through its process of transformation, and this is why I’m regularly saying to everyone: Find your centre. Find that space inside you where you can feel stillness, silence, and a connection to your own inner/higher truth and guidance. This will help you feel a sense of peace and calm when everything around you is turbulent. This will help to give you clarity and guidance as to a way forward, moment by moment, when the head is crying out “I am so confused, I don’t know what is going on and I don’t know what to do.”
When you feel “I don’t know what to do” consider that there is a part of you that does know. Your conscious self may not know, but – call it what you like – your superconscious, subconscious, greater self, higher self, soul, does know.We don’t have a map for the times we are in right now. We can have our ideas and visions of generally what to expect in terms of eventual outcomes, and even have strong insights as to how those outcomes might come about, but really, we can’t know for sure because we are creating this as we go.
Evolutionary shifts don’t come with a neat chart and graph explaining this is what is going to happen specifically, and these are the details of how it will occur, and this is how long it will last. We are living in the times of ‘blank pages’ when truly it is up to us as to what happens, and how we react to unexpected happenings. Solar activity and government shutdowns are not new events. Our sensitivity and emotional responses to these events however are new.
We’ve never had so many people feel so affected emotionally, energetically and physically, by these sorts of events. We’ve never had so many events – be they in our personal life, the lives of our close family/friends, or in the greater social/global community – happening simultaneously. We’ve never been so aware of all these events, awareness made possible by the internet and social media. Our emotional systems are on overdrive, and so any external trigger is going to be felt by us a hundred times more than in previous years be it an astro influence, galactic waves, a solar flare, a political or social issue, or a personal or family relationship.
This heightened sensitivity and heightened tendency to feel everything is ultimately a positive and beneficial one, but it is new territory for many. It’s something that we need to find a way to manage, in a way that we simultaneously allow it to flow through us, yet not swing us about wildly like cars being flung about in a tornado. Depending on your available time and surroundings, it is helpful to take some deep breaths in and out, go for a walk, lie outside on the grass, get out in nature, do some physical exercise or listen to some fantastic music.
Everyone will have their own favourite things to do: the things you know work best for you. It doesn’t really matter what you do, what matters is that you have a handful of (or even one) positive activities you know really work to get you centred no matter what else is going on around you.With so many governments around the world right now in some sort of disarray, it is easy to lose hope that things are changing for the better. However, this ‘disarray’ was always going to happen. The chaos, the collapse, the demands for change from millions of people, the resistance: it is all part of our overall transformation as a world.
This is not a time of ‘business as usual’. It is time of awakening. It is a time of voices being heard and hearts being expressed. It is a time where everything not in alignment with our true potential is being challenged, questioned, collapsed or transformed. It is a time where any of our old, outdated ways are also stubbornly holding on to what is familiar. That holding on is becoming increasingly painful – whether we are personally participating in it, or witnessing it.Right now, if you are feeling tension – and it may be your own or stuff you have picked up from others – just shake your hands and arms. Yes, just do it right now before you read one more word. Shake it out.
If you are able to do so depending on where you’re reading this, stand up and shake your legs, and your whole body. Run your hands down each arm, down your torso and back, and down your legs, and feel yourself clearing your energy of any ‘excess’ that doesn’t belong to you. Ask that it goes to the Energy Recycling area where it can be used in a good way. These days we can literally feel ourselves being receivers for huge amounts of electric energy and while there are many positives to being human ‘lights’, it is also necessary to know how to ground or release excess energy that you can’t embody – or don’t need to embody - otherwise you will feel yourself short-circuiting ie emotional meltdown!!Hope you’re all finding a way to, at the minimum, breathe!
