Finding your way this last week has felt a bit clearer than in the last few weeks. Cycles were coming to an end and beginning, all very close together. The weight seemed to lift, in some moments very subtly and in others quite recognizably. When the weight is gone though, is when we really begin to see things clearly. We feel as if the energy offers us space to spread our wings and explore the freedoms of reaching outside of our beings. Like newly awakened nerve endings in the body, we begin to flutter and become aware of the spark; the raw and unexplored territory that has been there all this time patiently awaiting our arrival. Yes, that’s right…we are remembering who we are. This may appear to you as newly traveled existence in this life and body, but your soul is re-awakening with the great knowledge of strength, faith, and love which you have always been. With the approach of this awakening, you might have felt physical updates happening in the form of headaches, body aches, sweats, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, all of which are the result of your soul bringing in transformation and new light. This can also come to us like a mental fog or veil, stubborn blankness, a void that dissolves thoughts as they enter. These are the results of great shifts occurring within our body, mind and spirits and the unbecoming.
As humans, it is really easy to give meaning to everything that occurs to you and around you. It is in and of itself, human nature to do so. When and emotion rolls through it is a common response to hold it inside of you and try to figure out where it came from and why it is there, because once it has meaning it can be released and our mind no longer has to wonder…but is this truth? While the mind has great purpose and value within your existence, this process of strapping down the emotion until you can determine its root or attachment is sometimes creating a story for you as well as containing and storing an emotion that was simply meant to roll by like a tumbleweed. If you have ever been doing something simple like driving or folding the laundry and felt a rush of emotion move through that gave you the chills and made your eyes well up. It could be attached to a recent thought you had, however, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it requires you to pull it to you and hug it so tightly that you can’t let it go until you know why it is there. The story is the mind in protective mode to guard you from feeling it so fully in the moment. The practice with this energy is to become permeable. Allow it to pass through with grace and reverence and relieve yourself of the duty to lock it away within your being.
When one experiences growth and transformation on one level of existence, there is a guarantee that it will touch all other levels of your being. With every energetic shift, your physical body will experience some form of discomfort along the way, as our energetic body is very much connected to our physical body. Something as simple as a headache can be traced back to an energetic trigger. During this time of ascension, the responses of the physical body can seem dismissive in the sense that your brain will tell you why your feel what you feel to debunk the energetic cause. Know that this is ok, do your best not to judge this process too much but rather see it as a genuine curiosity which will enable you to keep it moving through and release. Using similar phrases such as, “That is so curious…” or “Isn’t this interesting?” when you speak about what you notice within your process, can help to support the relieving of whatever is trying to move through. Your heart can feel the sense of curiosity and move towards the energy to help dissolve it by tapping into your heightened sense of awareness. During some of these intense transformations it is believed that you are physically changing the cell structure within your body, the neuro-pathways, and even your DNA. No matter what your belief is about this, you are shifting your thought patterns which enables you to transform.
Whatever your week felt like, know that all these shifts are preparing us for what’s next. Where some will need physical strength, others will require more compassion and as we all embark on this journey together, know that you are held with love, with strength, and with faith.
