We hear about the new world that is being birthed and wonder what else is going to have to be transformed before we can get back to the business of living. If we have been sitting back, waiting for the changes to be completed so we can get back to ‘normal’ then we will be shocked when we realize the truth because never was, and has never been, a ‘normal’ paradigm for the world. What we perceived as normal was only a brief snapshot of what is and has always been a shifting paradigm, an illusion created through the filters and belief systems that we hold individually and collectively.
February sure went by quickly, it seemed that it was over before it began. Now we are into March, and we are not sure what is going to happen. On the world stage, events seem to be pointing to some potentially dire consequences. This is what happens when the dark loses support, it looks darker and darker because there is less light around it. This month we must remember that we can change the energy of any situation when we refuse to allow ourselves to go into fear or to believe that we are helpless against the energies that have dominant for a long time, but whose time is at an end.
We tend to look at our journey of reconnection, which is played out in each of our visits to the earth plane, as choices we make from lifetime to lifetime. But the journey is much shorter than that, as it moves from choice to choice. Within each lifetime we have countless opportunities to take quantum leaps in consciousness, moving far beyond the boundaries of our soul contracts into higher levels of mastery. How do we make this journey go faster?
If we are responsible for all of our choices, even the ones that create drama and chaos in our life, then how do we transform what we have created into something different? Is it possible to undo a choice and what do we need to do so our future choices are more aligned with what we want to be instead of what we have to learn?
If our path has unlimited choices, why do we seem to move from one choice to another, seeing only one option before us and too often it is just as bad as the situation we are currently in? Of course there are no bad choices or options, but when we are in dire straits and the light at the end of the tunnel is very dim, we can feel pretty hopeless.
A client was recently recalling events of her life that were important choice points, times when she was making decisions that would either keep her on her karmic path or move her into a new way of being. With some sadness and regret, she could see where she had chosen the karmic path and how it had created so much drama and chaos in her life. A profound moment was her wedding day and she remembered thinking, as she was waiting to walk down the aisle, that she was making a big mistake.
Whew, January is over. Did you feel the big energy shift that happened during its last week? It arrived with sleeplessness, weight gain, dizziness, nausea and confusion, all familiar symptoms of the energy shifts of 2009, which we thought were over. And they are for the most part.
Back in the 1990s it was popular to ask someone what their astrological sign was, because knowing someone's star sign would determine whether a match could be made. And there is some truth to this because some signs do not get along as well as others (although there is more than sun signs to consider).
The journey of life is really a journey of control, where we either learn that we are not in control and spend a lifetime trying to change that any way we can. Or, where we learn that to be in control we must learn about surrender and then we have all of the control we need. But before we can get to the point of surrender we try many ways to control our reality and we become master manipulators who create a reality that, by all appearances, looks like we are in control. But is it true and can we make it last?
