The week has gone by so fast and with some incredible energy present. It feels like the energetic opposites are working together somehow. It’s like there is a heaviness that is felt by the physical body, and a lightness that is felt in the spiritual body. I have noticed that as the being sinks into a deep meditation or meditative practice, the limbs and body begin to feel this intense heaviness, however in that same practice the spirit body has been able to lift out and travel offering us the feeling of being levitated or having out of body-like experiences. The only way I know to describe it is like the stretching of taffy. Sometimes when I go to the beach I like to get the fresh made salt-water taffy because when it is fresh made, it is soft and malleable and as I stretch it apart, it makes me feel like there is much more to enjoy. Similar to the taffy it has felt as if the spiritual or energy body is pulling out of or away from the physical body in deep meditation and is creating space between the two without actually separating. This keeps a thread connected to each other so that expansion can happen without separation. We are being asked to stretch ourselves in some way and for many out in the world, this request feels like much more than they can handle.
It appears that in the last week there were many people who were having all kinds of meltdowns, mentally, emotionally, and physically. The pressure seems to be turned up and most everyone is not comfortable with the water beginning to boil. This pressure can show up in many different symptoms such as the literal feeling of being weighted or heavy, being tired, grumpy, emotionally unstable, getting sick, feeling depressed, losing interest in your daily rituals or process, etc. These are but a few of the symptoms that can manifest when we get distracted from our purpose and that is exactly what they are…DISTRACTIONS. It is these distractions that would jolt you off of the course to your ultimate spiritual journey and being able to recognize these for yourself is a beautiful step in the direction of staying on purpose or on the path. In becoming aware that you are distracted, you can also begin to bring yourself back on track. Each and every one of you will have different ways to re-align yourselves, so it doesn’t matter how you do it, as long as you do it. It also becomes important to remember that if you are experiencing this feeling, others are too and not everyone may have the tools to deal with the intensity of it. Once you have yourself aligned, know that you may have to hold space for others to move through this potent energy and if they do not have tools to deal with it, it could be far more intense for them. Try to have more compassion and flexibility with your fellow humans.
So coming back to the energy that is weighted and light at the same time. In that space of stretching, you might find a new doorway or experience. In other words, that space could be the door to your next level of consciousness. To your brain it doesn’t seem possible that you could expand outside of your physical body but in terms of energy you can push out beyond the body quite easily and quite far. One trick to taking full advantage of this expansion is to remain conscious to the space between the physical and spiritual. As you begin to expand you create an opening in the energy that might feel like a void or empty container of some kind. The thing is, it is not necessarily empty so if you are able to connect and bring presence to that space in your practices, you may learn something new about yourself, your journey, and your ability to heal. When you feel that in-between space, ASK FOR HELP!! If you work with your guides, angels, God, etc., you can say to them, “Show Me…_______”. You can ask for help whenever you need it. In doing this practice, it remains equally important to trust the message you receive when you ask no matter how it shows up. The moment you FEEL that the question is answered your brain will begin to analyze, so pause your thinking and go back to the initial FEELING as this is your truth in that moment. There are some instances where your answer will arrive sometime later and that is ok too as long as when you recognize it, you TRUST.
This is part of the process that will allow humanity to ascend and transcend. We are all on this ride together and we have a grand opportunity to do this together!
