This last week has been a very transitional one and it seemed that emotions were running like an endless stream of water, plunging down over a waterfall. I found myself ready to cry at commercials about mindless things, getting easily frustrated and short tempered with others, and having to face things from my past that I have not brought full closure to. At any other time of year this may seem deeply out of the ordinary, however last week put us directly into the energy surge leading up to the Solar Eclipse that will happen this Wednesday, March 9th.
The emotional waves that were washing through last week, were working you through the internal landscape of what and who you are at your core. They are challenging the previous fears you may have believed about your inner truths and how those fears have held onto you as you have forged your way to this moment. The ebb and flow is meant to lite a spark under your passion and see what you can use from your deepest core to create a fire beyond the fear. When the fire ignites, can you see how far you have come? Are you able to take those lessons and apply them to where you are intending to go with your dreams? These are question to be addressed moving forward from last week to set yourself apart from the fear that may have blocked you previously.
It seems that with all of the wild emotional vibrations moving out, the inward energy for many was the process of a “cosmic download”. This may sound like a foreign concept to some, but our souls and/or spirit will experience what can be referred to as a “download” of light (energy) that allows us to absorb new knowledge and exist at a new vibration. When these downloads occur it can be for many reasons and they can be extremely intense. For some, last week felt as if the download was happening and they couldn’t quite put a finger on what felt different but were able to function without too much disturbance in their day to day. Others felt like the download created so much of a disturbance that they found themselves tired, sick, lethargic or with a foggy brain. Either way the most important thing is to be as conscious as you can when the energy within you feels like it is building or expanding. Also remember to listen to your body, as it too can be affected by the intense energies cleansing out in order to make room for the new light, so take baths, go running, paint, rest, journal, meditate, do Yoga or do whatever you do to nourish yourself. By allowing yourself some of this time, you are surrendering to the flow of life and begin to ride the waves instead of fighting the current.
It also seemed that dreams became much more frequent in terms of experiences being held to memory after waking. It is important to remember that everyone dreams even if they have no recollection of it. There are many others out there who remember their dreams vividly and in some cases can participate in lucid dreaming. One belief around dreams is that you can work through issues from this life or past lives through dreams as well as connect to the different plains of existence like the spirit realm, for example. If you noticed a theme occurring with your dreams or awakened with a feeling that there was a message, I recommend keeping a pen and paper next to your bedside so you can jot down any things you remember such as specific places, people, or things as well as feelings and emotions. Dreams can be a powerful tool in allowing energies to release that are no longer serving you on this journey. They offer us a way to get some of the release work done, without having to fully relive or endure it. Notice the connections you make in the dream state and know that you are cleansing from some deep places within, so that you can move forward clear and with peace.
Hopefully you were able to take the week in stride, placing one foot in front of the other. As the inner landscape is washed over, all the other places you exist from will align in preparation of the upcoming eclipse season. Take some time to write down some things you are ready to cleanse out, people you are ready to release, and fears that have been holding you back from your true greatness, then take that paper and burn it! Set it all free, trusting that you will be once again whole and complete.
