There have been many times in my life where I felt as if I were the burning woman. Burning away the old to ashes and in due time, rising out of the ashes to exist once more with a fresh set of feathers. This burning sometimes felt like ripping through emotions at high peaks and low valleys, and sometimes it was a mental burning of thoughts and process that kept tearing me away from my true path. Occasionally, I would feel the burning in a physical manner through a sensation that the temperature of my skin might cook an egg or melt icebergs or as if the energy moving through required my body to hold within it a dragon that was preparing to hatch itself into the world through fire. Last week though…last week felt like many of us were experiencing an energetic fever. This feeling like your body temperature was rising and at any moment you may feel the pressure in your head or throat, but none of that came except the waves of fever washing over and undulating through the warmth and heat in a “burn baby burn” sort of style that left us feeling it all.
Something very comforting about last week’s undulations was that you know the energy is working because you can feel it physically move your body. The feeling of this movement is often like sitting or standing in a meditative state and beginning to notice the slight shifting of the body either front and back or side to side. It can be a curious thing to negotiate when you have your eyes closed especially of your energy moves your body so much that you get the feeling of falling. These undulated energies in the energy body are so brilliant as they give you the opportunity to really connect to what is moving through you. It is like a billboard sign flashing in waves of color so that each letter of the words light up with purpose. You do not miss anything in the reading of the sign. You consume each syllable vividly with an awareness that your entire being feels wave after wave.
Now, while this may sound very poetic, these undulating energies also bring with them what you have been working on in your journey of life and spirituality and last week these workings tapped some deeply emotional spaces for some of you. Each of you reading this has experienced growth this year with respect to your job, family, relationships, business, heart, connection, presence, etc., and at this point in the journey you may be running into some familiar places. Many of you may have had experiences that came up and you responded something like, “Oh hello, it’s you again…I THOUGHT I WORKED THROUGH THIS ALREADY!” Being of brave courage, as I know you are, you must realize that these pieces within your undulations of energy are taking you deeper in your journey of discovery. You may run into places you have seen and processed before, however, now you are a different soul, in a different space of your existence and are getting an opportunity to grow deeper with whatever it is that has come up. You are ready to burn it through and it is ready to burn through you, so you welcome the fever with open arms.
What you may not have realized in the process last week, is that the undulating moves the fever through the spaces necessary for it to burn off. Sometimes the fever will feel like a hot flashed wave of heat that makes you begin to perspire and sweat; other times it will feel like a blushed moment of warmness in the cheeks or heart or belly that moves through quickly, but lingers long enough for you to validate that it was present there for a moment. During these rushes you might have felt the urge to cry without reason; you might have notices your breath becoming shallow and close to a hyperventilation state; you might have felt the pounding in the top of the crown, front or back of the brow, or the fiery scratching of the throat indicating the flame is close or moving through. When you experience these types of feelings the conditioned instinct is to choke it down until it passes. The truth is, you are all way past that point now and your social conditioning is changing; evolving into a space that welcomes this undulating fever to move through however it needs to in order to pass fully. Offer yourself this opportunity to be with it however it shows up and trusting that you are not alone in the process. You know what? You aren’t alone my friend, we the souls of light are with you!
