The seven previous days have been a calling to work it out. Work out the truth, work out who you are in that truth, work out who others are in that truth and work into how that truth will form the following days of our existence. The last couple months have been a treacherous journey for me personally, and I am going to share a little about it because it really speaks to transitions of the last several days. I have really felt a cavernous sense of duality and separation, literally like being torn in half. Luckily it seems as though I am not swept up in the spurts of mass hysteria, however, I am equally effected by all that is going on. I feel connected to certain energy that speaks on both “sides” of the fight and so when my Fighting, Warrior Heart finally chooses to speak up and offer perspective, I am attacked and instantly feel the need to defend myself, forcing me to feel even more angry and sad that so many of my friends, my people have been swept. So then, as much as I try not to, I become a component of the “us and them” duality. This my friends is where the work begins…seeing the split. Knowing how I contribute to the divide of humanity and seeing it from a perspective of, “Who am I in this relationship (situation, battle, discussion, march, etc), and what is my role?” From there, with a truthful answer, I have been able to hold my truth without needing to defend it, so that others out there can feel supported as well…the bringing in of unity.
In the last week, it seemed there were many opportunities to communicate with yourself about what your role is at this time within your life, your job, your hobbies, your social environments, in all aspects that came to the front for you. A lot of shifting is happening, many of you are in a space of looking for a new job and all the “do I’s”, and “what if’s” can feel like an anchor holding you to stay where you are. The trick is realizing that the anchor is an illusion of your mind that works to bring in fear, which can keep you from moving forward. Now this is not saying to quite your job irresponsibly, without a plan for yourself or your family. This is, however, asking you to really sit in the WHY you are staying, WHY you want to leave, WHY is the next place (if you know where you are headed) going to serve your true purpose. It is when you are able to find the clarity that is driving this movement, that you become free to do so. If you are driven to change, only because you want to hurry up and get out of discomfort, you may end up in the equal energy or something more challenging. Remember, your role in any situation is defined by you. Others may put labels on you, but that is more about who they are and none of that decides who you are in any capacity. If you are there to fight, then fight; if you are there to stand back and hold space, then do that. Action comes in many forms and as long as you are acting by truth from deep in your heart and soul, you will feel the unity for yourself.
Deciding who you are in different interactions can get a tricky as well, especially if you are still trying to figure out what that looks like. You might feel as though you have had to be someone different at work and at home, for example, and the truth is there are aspects that will require a little more finesse, or a little more assertiveness. At your center there is an energy that lights your path, and opens up a space for you to express and share the real you. It brings a sense of opening connection to the world and this is how you emanate who you are to the world around you. In this center is your will, your perceptions, your weakness and your strength. The beauty of all of this is that you can choose how all of this moves out beyond the borders of physical body in which you contain it all. You get to decide who you are in every capacity of your being and this energy is what creates a solid foundation for your WHY. It becomes what supports you when the WHY changes and when the world changes.
My dear friends, the WHY within me honors the WHY within you weather you are a being of action or support. All are welcome. Blessings!
