Let’s face it, we are all connected and when things are hard for a few of us, they are hard for all of us. As the energies accelerate and old ways of functioning shift out of the way and new ways of being arrive, we feel it. Sometimes we deeply feel it and not always as light and love.
When we are experiencing major upheavals in our bodies and lives we often resist, try to understand and control what is happening. The more major and collective the shift, the more resistance there is. That is the nature of the collective. This intensification of energy starts to show up in various ways, either in our bodies our psyche and our relationships and can leave us asking “what’s happening?!”
Facing the End
As endings arrive we face our fear of the unknown. We have to revisit our values and find new meaning in how we are in the world. Ending of past patterns and beliefs that are no longer serving us begin to show up and peel away, sometimes in dramatic ways. It could show up as job loss, divorce, death, etc. as a result.
But even if you are not experiencing collective shifts as a major life altering end on the outside, it is still going on internally. You may be experiencing fatigue, dizziness, fogginess, random illnesses, etc.
There is a lot of unconscious clearing going on for all of us during the time of change. When you surrender to the idea it is going to be a great thing in the end, you allow for shifts to happen in support of your highest frequency instead of your old patterns. It is about making it to the other side without resisting or at least minimizing it.
We have to clear the garden to grow even more beautiful plants.
Take Care of Yourself
Our bodies take a hit during times of big change as well. It is important to take care of yourself and listen to your needs at the time of this shift. If you need a nap, take a nap. If you need to take a day or week off, do it. Take care of yourself during times of big change.
Nothing is wrong with you, you are just having to let go of old patterns that you have been using for so long. It feels like a death of sorts, which obviously can be uncomfortable. Notice what you are going through and try and keep yourself grounded. If you are not able to feel grounded, call a friend or get involved with a group. I guarantee you are not the only one going through the shift and it will help you work through it if you can share your thoughts and ideas with others.
Give yourself permission to go inward and listen to what you really want right now. Honor that and know you are doing the best you can right now.
