Getting “through” It
This has been a crazy time! As the energies are speeding up and changing, our very foundation is getting a shock. Death and rebirth is a real part of the cycles of living on planet earth. Right now is no exception.
This energy is hitting the ego in a big way. I don’t mean the boastful ego, but the ego that lives in separation. The ego that says “I am me and you are you.” The ego that needs things to be defined, predictable and clear.
Clarity is Not So Clear
Clarity is what this is all about, but of course it doesn’t feel so clear as we are trying to get through it. It feels like a “funk” that you just can’t shake. You might feel “all over the place” and just not capable of getting grounded or feeling settled.
Think of it like closing your eyes and putting your face in the shower. You are cleaning off things, but you can’t watch it leave. Trying to make sense of the dirt you are washing off, thinking about how it got there, debating how you might prevent it from happening again is not going to get you clean. It will just drive you crazy while you are in the shower.
Stepping into the flow, allowing what is ready to leave, just leave by letting it go. Not always so easy for our ego minds. But this really is the only way to let real change happen.
You Can’t Fix It
Sometimes in life we just need to survive. Things feels crazy, out of control and just plain unbearable. So what do we do? We try and “fix it” and control the outcome. In the cycles of our lives, these crazy times can be the chance for big change, opportunity and growth. But just like any big change, the struggle is real and the fear of the unknown can get the best of you.
There are moments in life where there is nothing left to do other than protect yourself and survive it. The phrase "this too shall pass” comes to mind. You aren't safe to jump out into the storm and try and control it. You are just meant to stay safe and out of the way. You can’t hug the tornado, but you can find a place where you can find safety and security and regroup.
Allow your Feelings to Inform You
Anxious feelings are common when you are going through a transition time and your life is changing, even if it is for the better. Our emotions can help us or keep us stuck, depending on what we do with them.
If you use your emotions to inform yourself, you can recognize the negative feelings are about resistance to what is because you are not in alignment with your authentic energy. If you your use emotions to drive a story deeper and reinforce the illusion that everything is happening to you, not with you, you will stay there for awhile until you are sick of yourself and stop resisting.
Either way, you don’t want to stop the feelings you are having. This is information and stuffing your feelings causes illness. If you feel like a victim, go there for a minute. Be a victim, indulge in it! Then don’t! Then do. Then don’t.
Allow yourself to have some time with your feelings and see where they naturally flow without controlling it. This will work with the magic of these emotions rather than turn them into toxic sludge in your system.
One resource I find super helpful is Esther and Jerry Hick’s work with Abraham, The Law of Attraction and The Emotional Guidance scale.
Find People Who Help You, Love You
If you are feeling like you just can't stand up anymore, that is okay. Hang out with the people that help you love yourself. Take a step back from anyone that isn’t supporting that. Be with the people you feel the most love and support from. The more you love yourself, the more love you will have to give. Shelter yourself from the opinions, struggles, and chaos of the world that isn’t supportive. Let things blow over and return to a calmer state.
Set new boundaries for yourself during this time. Be clear with your intentions and use your awareness to direct your thoughts and perceptions towards where you want to be going next. Taking a break allows you time to be clear about self-care in this time and begin making choices that move you closer to your authentic self.
You will survive and if you don't you will get another chance in the next life…bad joke.
