Hi everybody and welcome to the Energy Forecast for July and August 2014.
The first thing for me to touch on this month is humorous to me because it’s the very reason that I had trouble starting this forecast a second ago, which is: our brains – and how our brains are not functioning the way they used to.
Now, some of you will have been familiar with this from time to time over the last several years. It’s part of the awakening process that your brain no longer 'thinks' or operates the way the old you used to. So for a while, it can almost feel like your brain disappears from your life.
Symptoms are struggling with memory; struggling with concentration; struggling to string a sentence together; and some people are even noticing that their words are getting a little jumbled up.
This is quite common within a lot of people. A large number of people going through the awakening process right now will be experiencing this.
So it’s nothing particularly to worry about.
But the interesting thing for us to learn from it, is to notice how it makes us feel to lose our mental capacity.
Because the challenge, I believe, for all of us on the planet in the last few years is how do we find strength through increasing vulnerability?
It seems that every year there are more challenges for us as a people and as individuals that put us into situations that we haven’t been in before.
You see, if you think of the linear mind and the more masculine way of using the mind, it’s directional; and there is a progression of thought and logic leading to external actions and choices. The masculine mind perceives achievements and 'happenings' along the way and likes to see what we might call 'measureable or provable success'.
Well, that’s a very human-trained way of living and using the old masculine mind.
So now more people than ever are opening beyond how they were 'trained' as a human - a training which, for all of us on this planet, has limited our actual potential and our capacity. Some people refer to this as 'conditioning'.
As you open beyond your conditioned mind, and you start to bring your energy senses into play; your third eye, your heart at a new level, the whole energy field. Once this begins to happen, everything starts to change. And the old brain feels very out of place. And it can almost feel sometimes like you are saying things that you don’t quite understand, or that don’t quite reverberate with other people in the way that they used to.
So, many of you will be having a bit of an experience where you’re talking to someone, or in an engagement and you’re suddenly going, “What did I just say/do….?” You will be finding yourself surprised by your actions and sayings.
And this is just the brain 'loosening' it's old grip on your behaviours.
Because you no longer have such a strong emotional connection to it as you did.
The brain starts to become more of a piece of service to you and your way of being, rather than the solo leader of your way of being, the more you awaken. The brain become a facility you go to, to use for the times that you need to organize, analyze or direct events. But actually what happens during awakening is the brain of the heart starts to become far more dominant.
So, you will experience this when you are, for example, sitting looking at a tree – something I can’t stop doing in the last 4 months. You will need that time to stop and be still in order to stay balanced, because at the moment so much energy is pouring onto the planet. We hear a lot about external influences right now - solar flare activity, universe shifts that are going on around us, but what you have to look at is how does that implode us internally?
So, the brain and also the physical body are two big areas that are being energetically affected in people right now.
Some people are experiencing physical issues or symptoms that are forcing them to stop, re-examine, slow down, change the way they operated.
Some people are just experiencing more tiredness or exhaustion or unusual needs to nap where usually their energy is more consistent.
Again, all of these things over the last 3 or 4 years will have been symptoms for everybody at certain stages. But, as with this fast growing time, these symptoms are getting stronger and more universal, so now the whole collective are experiencing it.
Now the whole collective is something to really take into account when you consider how you are feeling on a day to day basis.
I work with people every week, and I have done for 10 years. And what’s been so illuminating to me in that journey is you really understand that we all have a relationship to fear and we all have a relationship to love and to opening. And we might all be different in the details of those relationships, but underneath, the same core relationships to love and fear exist.
So for example, I might have fear about things that you personally don’t fear – and vice versa. But the point is they’re just different stories; just different ways of experiencing fear as a human being.
What many of you tend to forget, and I see this in questions I’m asked on my monthly live Q + A broadcasts in 'The Portal', is that many of you can make how you are feeling very personal. Many of you can feel that what’s going on for you is very much 'all to do with you'.
And this often leads to judgment or lack thoughts toward yourself; such as, Why can I not overcome this? Why can I not make this work? What’s my problem that this creation I’m trying to create cannot come to fruition? What’s my issue? What’s the wound I need to heal?
Now, that way of thinking is really old in the self-development community from my perspective.
There is a time and a place to start burrowing into yourself and thinking it’s all about you. But it’s never all about us. We’re in a very interconnected web of life.
And right now, a lot of people in the world are panicky, exhausted, spinning off their center – so they’re often playing out unconscious actions in bigger or more reactive or more volatile ways.
This collective energy affects all of us, day-to-day.
This is why over the last few months I reminded you to know about your boundaries and know what’s okay with you and what isn’t.
Because a lot of people right now will be behaving in ways that they never have before. Reactive, irritated, impatient, sad - responses to this time that may be unconscious in them and their behaviours.
So you need to learn how to be responsive to that in yourself. You also may need to make some changes in how you navigate people and relationships right now.
You may need to ask yourself questions such as "Do I want to get into an argument with this person or can I just walk away because they are really exploding right now? Is this the time where I talk to them about that thing I’ve never spoken to them about?"
But through all of this, and particularly when dealing with people who are having difficulties, just keeping coming back to this sensory heart that I mentioned earlier. You can use your feeling space a lot more than you are to intuit the world, and to navigate it in a more peaceful and conflict-free way.
So for example, if you are saying, “Well, why isn’t this thing working in my life right now?” Trust that things aren’t meant to work at this moment in time, but perhaps they will very soon. Or your plan needs to change and sitting back for a few days, will help you see that.
Our human minds have a very small view of this whole planet and our whole way of interacting. Our soul mind is vast and endless, but, in the experience of being human and bringing more consciousness to your life and the planet, we all inhabit our human 'small mind' at times. But beyond that there is consciousness. And consciousness knows EXACTLY the reason your book is not finished yet. And it will most often be not because you have a problem with writers block, but because the world is not ready for your book yet.
As someone who has been a regular creator for ten years, it’s been one of the greatest lessons I’ve learnt as a creator. If you’re creating something for the outside world, whether those people are already there and waiting for it (the family you are organising that trip for) or whether you're hoping over the coming years it will be seen and experienced by people (the book you are writing for public release); you have to understand that your blocks can be as much to do with the audience that are waiting for it. And often it is that they’re not ready to receive this experience/ piece of information right now, as much as it is anything to do with you.
So if you are in that state of attacking yourself or judging yourself for what’s going wrong with you and your plans, try and take a breath. Surrender to the fact it isn't working, breathe and you will start to release that tension and frustration you now feel.
Try to remember, daily, that there are a whole lot of crazy, rapidly tornado-ing experiences going on out there around you. And many people are spinning off their center unless they are aware; "Wow. This is a more chaotic time. So I need to adjust the way I’m operating".
Not everybody is acknowledging this, so their unconscious behaviours are getting louder so that they might catch their own attention.
What’s happening as a result is a lot of people are running even harder in the outside world, thinking they can make it work if they put more effort in, which right now creates more chaos. It is also because they don’t want to slow down and feel what’s inside them, which is something we can all empathise with and understand from our own lives.
So be compassionate with your boundaries wherever you can, as you never know the size of fear that is driving someone's reactive behavior.
So, final point for this month – and this applies to the month of August also.
In recent years, we have seen certain months and certain time periods where it has felt like the energy ceiling is limitless to us, and all of a sudden there is this wave of energy moving through, opening us deeply and quickly. And on a certain week or a certain month so much can happen in your life because of this. So much can suddenly arrive that felt like it was missing before.
What we’ve noticed in the last year or two as a people is everything that a few years ago may have taken a week to experience, now happens within half a day. And then in the second half of the day the energy has changed again and you are experiencing another strong energy experience. Most of us are getting used to this now, but it still means we have to learn to become very nimble on our toes and keep moving and not get attached to any one state. We need not get attached to the 'joy' state that you were in this morning; because if you have to let go of joy (because suddenly you feel tired and you serve the tiredness with a nap or a rest), the joy will come back later.
This is the way of 'Consciousness Dancing' that we’re all having to learn in a very human way on the planet right now.
How do I bring this sense of consciousness, this sense of my sensory ability out into the world? And every day, it is a new learning or experiencing.
And the truth is many of you feel frustrated about what you can’t bring out to the world or into your life.
But that’s because this is a delicate process. We can’t just wake up, feel more alive and conscious and suddenly throw that energy out at the world or force it on the world.
We’re still figuring out how to nurture it inside ourselves AND how to be in the outside world at an all new level than we’ve ever been.
Before we might have been running out there, running our energy through people and activities; nowadays we’ll still have our energy out there with people, but first and foremost how big is this part of you inside yourself? How full is this heart chakra feeling for YOU? As focusing in that direction, means you will naturally emanate more heart energy to others when in their presence.
So my point is: rather than you being able to do bold ventures out into the world at the moment, because the energy climate is so tumultuous and it changes so quickly, the place to really learn to exist and create from now is in here (Lee points to his heart chakra).
If you can exist from this heart center and really allow yourself to feel everything that’s going on in the world, you’re going to be far more successful in how you operate.
I’ll give you an example. If I came up to you at a party – and I’m going to demonstrate now – this is me excitable and in my head. (Excitedly and bouncing around) “Oh hi! Wow, it’s great to see you! Oh man, there is so much going on and da-da-da-da…”
Now, it’s really tempting if you had me in front of you, to start traveling to join that frenetci energy. Now I know some of your are laughing going, “Ha! I’d be pulling back!” And I’d be like you, most of you.
But the point is: can you just stay here in yourself EXACTLY where you were, when this frenetic person is doing this in front of you?
Because, in the past so many of us got caught into other people’s energy pathways. Either being pulled into or repelled by them. And that’s what the last few years have been all about. How do you remain connected to yourself while knowing that you are still connected to others? And how do you remain connected to your heart center in every moment, even if the person in front of you is not yet sitting in theirs?
So if you have ambitions or if you have big desires at this time, try and keep bringing them into the smaller reality, because that way big things will happen. Focus on one small step at a time. Large projects in the next few months will do best when focused on in a small, detail oriented way, and anything beyond that is likely to feel overwhelming.
And if you are frustrated as you have a big burning ambition or some massive change you want to employ in your life, ask yourself what’s really underneath it driving the frustration? Because there will usually be some discomfort you are trying to solve. For example, if the wish is "I wish I had an amazing career" you might find that the driving force in that sentence is "So I didn’t have to feel so depressed about the state of the world."
Well, know that, if you get that amazing career, the depression about the world would rise in some other way at some point.
So be with your feelings about the world FIRST and clear how that feels in you as much as you can, so that your dreams aren't being tethered to your sense of loss, fear or pain. As in these summer months, things won't fly unless they have clear energy around them.
Daily practices: meditate, take ten minutes a day to be with trees, get ten minutes a day of sunlight – that’s really important. That was a message from The Z’s in last month’s Q + A broadcast.
Sunlight right now is really helping the DNA and the cellular changes that we’re going through to integrate. So, 10-15 minutes of sunlight a day as a practise.
So everybody, I hope you have a really good July.
I will be back in the fall. I’m not going to be doing an Energy Forecast in August so I designed this one to apply through August also. And in the fall, I have an exciting new video series that we are working on right now that we will look forward to unveiling for you.
If you want to stay in touch with me in the meantime, there are daily quotes on Facebook, which you can find here. And I do a Live Q + A Broadcast in The Portal every month.
You can check out The Portal and all the great things in there here.
So have a great summer everyone and see you in Autumn.
Lots of love, Lee
