Last week was seemingly a continuation of all the energy shifting through this season of eclipses as well as passing through the eye of the Spring Equinox. There were elements of sadness, discomfort, and stagnation across the board, however, within these darker places was also a glimmer, peeking through as a tiny starlight of hope. It is important to acknowledge this glimmer because it is the spark that lights the path forward.
There have been many challenging moments in the last week that felt as if they may not ever end, leaving us to squat in the stagnation of energies trying to pass through and release. It is in these moments you realize how truly comfortable you've become with your own stories. Stories that have been with you for much of this life and potentially previous lives (if that is your belief). There is a brilliance in recognizing the root of these energies and seeing the walls of stagnation crumble in order to propel you forward to the next level of vibration. In some sense, the Winter season has allowed you time to travel inside and bring to the surface old belief systems, the old stories. As you release these old beliefs do your best to see all the places the roots are attached; seeing the emotions that arise, the relationships that deepen, or dissolve, the physical breakdown of sickness or dis-ease within the body. Recognizing the "symptoms” of stagnation is the key to a greater awareness and presence within. This will touch every aspect of your life, empowering you in ways that will create fresh pathways and opportunities on your journey.
Later in the week the energy opened up wide to reveal the way out of Winter's hibernation, and into the rebirth of Spring. This is a perfect opportunity to choose the path moving forward that matches the vibration of your purpose and passions. As the stories of old are released, you create open space within your energy system that transmits your light. For some of you it may have felt difficult coming through the dark and into the light especially after all the highs and lows recently. You remain like the lotus, the yearning to rise to the light of the sun is more intense than the need to stay in the comfort of the dark mud. The decision to open to the light may feel uncomfortable for you, however if you are able to recognize the glimmer reflected within, you can spark an inner presence more deeply than you ever imagined. The vibrational frequency of this spark is the path to your enlightenment, the path to recognizing your deepest source and authenticity.
One aspect of the last few weeks has been very intense dreams. There are many different ways to analyze dreams or find the message trying to be relayed to you. In the last two weeks my dreams have had an apocalyptic energy to them where I find myself having to survive something or someone. One dream I had, I was in a building with my mother, an earthquake hit and the building came crashing down with us in it. The building had huge windows so we were able to get free after the building came down. My feeling of this was interpreted as: relationships are quaking and changing; the windows offer an opportunity to look in or out to change the view; buildings crashing down tell how systems or beliefs crumble. I try to connect to my meaning of each piece of the dream. If you have been having dreams about different animals or earthly creatures, these are known as totems. They bring messages for you, look them up and use the energy that resonates for you, as these are telling you to pay attention and be present to changes happening. Dreams can be powerful messages for you even if you don't remember them. You may notice that you awaken with a feeling or energy you weren’t expecting, thinking of someone, or even a sense that something is about to happen. Take care to listen to what is being communicated, as being present can open up your energy system.
While last weekend came to a close you may have experienced challenges falling to sleep or staying asleep. It is not uncommon for the building energies of these natural changes to have an effect on your body, mind and spirit. If you were effected in this way, do what you can to rest or catch up with sleep in the coming days. In these times of heightened energies, it is so important to take care of yourself with love and compassion, and remember…This too shall pass.
