There seemed to be a similar question for everyone last week, at least in my neck of the woods, which was, “How can we be and/or exist as who we naturally are with a world like this?” Now, before we go deeper into this feeling, let me share with you some aspects I was reminded of during a workshop I attended this last weekend. As we are born into this life, our worth is almost immediately challenged. As we grow older we are shaped by the socially formed beings that we know as our parents, and so some of the patterns continue to duplicate themselves within us then on to our children. I am not saying that there is judgement or blame on the parents or us or our children, it is simply the human condition and how we are brought up by the social conditioning of what the state of the world is around us. This conditioning is what takes us farther away from who we truly are, and, the beauty of all of this is, that who we truly are never really leaves us. Anytime we choose to let go of the facade of who we told ourselves we had to be, our truest form of self is there ready to catch us, to hold our hand as we walk into the unknown, or as I like to call it, the remembering.
In the many layers that presented opportunity this last week, the one that felt the strongest was the acceptance of what it and how trust and faith support it. Life has no shortage of challenges and is ready to dish them out at any moment. At some points early in the week it felt like the old saying, “and the hits just keep on coming,” however it is the very perspective with which you see these that determines how they show up. If you have taken some pretty hard hits with jobs, family, or life in general over the last couple months or even years, one more challenge can spear the mind, causing deep pain that fear and ego love to tag-team. The fear comes in, speaking to the ego saying how you are not enough for you, your family, your job, your life AND these are all LIES. Yes, they are lies which fear uses to distract your thoughts and in turn, forces you to see only the pain. That moment, when you felt the spear penetrate your existence, instantly became a moment of great healing. This is the opportunity to change your direction, to allow your thought patterns to shift toward a deeper consciousness and awakening. This is the opportunity to transform your pain into courageous energy that will shift your life in many directions.
There is one consistent energy present that is quite a trickster. This energy has been present for several months and is very multifaceted so that it can trick even the sharpest of minds. The energy is rooted in pain, the pain that is happening all over the United States and all over the world. In this pain many are tricked by their fear and anger and as they speak out and prepare to “go to battle”, they do not see how they are being run by the pain due to a lack of either willingness or knowledge on how to face it and heal it. They want to be heard and felt so badly and they do not accept that if you are not fighting like them, that you must be on the “other’s side”, or out of touch with humanity either by ignorance or choice. Now this energy is neither good nor bad, right nor wrong, it simply is the space of pain where many hearts sit. The key to thwarting this type of trickster is to look the pain in the face because it is not the pain creating the mayhem, it is the fear. When you are able to heal your heart by breathing in and out the pain you can begin to see a new light forming within you. This light will break out beyond the barriers of the “us and them” mentality, driven by fear, because there will be understanding for all in the light. To be clear, this is not saying to cower to those things that are unjust, however it is one way to clear the veil that continues to exist in the divide.
We are all beings of light, walking the earth trying to find the way home. Start from within and feel how the love in your heart might inspire others to feel more deeply. Clear your mind of the veils of fear feeding on pain and see how your world changes.
