Well I can definitely say that last week was a “HOLD ONTO YOUR BUTTS” kind of week friends. The world was set fire with emotion, and not the kind of emotion that is easy to keep inside. I am talking about the kind of emotion that erupts…that bursts beyond all of your protective barriers and sprays out all over the space around you. You know the kind I am talking about. When the energy feels weighted and heavy on you and you can feel the tension building, not only because you feel it within, but because you can see the burdens of life pressing down on others. The pressure builds, like being in a life pressure cooker, and suddenly as if the lid wasn’t properly fastened, BOOM. Emotions. All over the floor, the ceiling, the windows, each other; hanging out there for everyone to see, to judge and to have an opinion about. The crazy part of all of this is that as we each were either witness to this explosion or the one exploding we were all a part of it coming into this realm. Each of us played a part in being the catalyst for this energy to feel like it was able to move out of the physical vessel and be released. The trick then becomes recognizing who you are in that moment of release.
Seeing what role you played in this opening can be a liberating process because it enables you to recognize each of the roles that contributed. These kinds of intense openings and release are one’s that have been building for days, weeks, months or even years. They have worked to the surface through all of your filters, through all of your social conditioning which tells you to not cry, to be tough and to “take it like a man or woman”. This energy is not on the surface to be hidden and its force or push which has brought it to the surface holds the knowledge that you are ready for it. So coming back to your role in the way this energy plays itself out…well this is where the real work comes in. It is important that through this process you allow things like guilt, judgement, and shame fall to the side as best as you can. There is no room for them to be present in such raw and flowing emotions (energy-in-motion). After the peak of the energy begins to float back to “normal” take some time to sit with your part of the emotion. When did you first sense the heaviness around what happened? Did you do something consciously or subconsciously to move the energy up and out? Where you there holding space for those directly involved? Did you try to carry the emotion further or allow it to linger by discussing it beyond what was necessary (in more of a gossip sense)? These are but a few roles each of you can play when energy moves in such great amounts.
When you see your role, own it. There is no point in denying what is, as your heart knows the truth and will eventually move that truth to the surface. The Universe also sees it and will continue to put you in that energy until you own it and in a way, complete the cycle. Often when these releases happen, it is unexpected and purely spontaneous so it becomes more difficult in these moments to keep it together. Maybe you weren’t meant to keep it together and maybe, the reason that this energy has surfaced is because you have been trying to keep it together for far too long. The beauty that will happen after a powerful release like this is like lifting all of that heaviness off of you and releasing it up into the atmosphere or down into the earth where it can be re-processed; spiritual fertilizer that makes the light grow strong and expansive. You see, even when you are witnessing someone else release the energy and begin to heal from some sort of pain, you are also healing. You have your role in the process and you being there to be a part of it is moving energy within you, a catalyst of sorts to spark your own inner healing process.
While the emotional levels were higher, there is a subtle resonance of energy that comes in and makes us all recognize what we are grateful for. We have the opportunity to see how the intensity is a gift that reminds us to breathe, take our time and honor all that is available to us through body, mind and spirit.
Blessings Sweet Light Beings!
