Breathing Through These Strong Waves

If you felt like staying under a blanket today, or have had 'came out of nowhere' emotional releases, you are possibly being triggered by the X grade Solar Flare yesterday, (X is highest grade), followed by an M Class today (not as mammoth as X but still mega huge).

This is on top of the fact we are coming up to the Solar Eclipse in 0 Degrees Scorpio on Thurs afternoon/Friday morning depending on your time zone. Ron Laswell of AstroChakras informed me that 'this degree represents the point where the 'veil' is the thinnest' so anything is possible: pay attention to your dreams, visions, insights, nudges and be conscious of what you are calling in from the Universal Field of Potential with your thoughts and feelings. Ron says: "the whole month of Scorpio has a thin veil. Notice how we have Halloween which is more near the center of Scorpio, which I feel explains why we celebrate All Saint's Day during this time."

Not to mention we are still in the fire and water emotional aftermath of the recent Lunar Eclipse in Aries that was both conjunct Uranus and a Grand Fire Trine.

The energy is electric, and potentially explosive (emotional or otherwise). Yesterday I lit the gas on the outdoor burner and wooshka up shot some flames!! To say I had an inner freak out would be an understatement. Christian rushed over to turn the gas off but more flames kept shooting out! So part of me is thinking 'oh god this could explode, please don't explode, oh my god what if it explodes!' while the other part was feeling "'this is so the energy right now."

It wasn't a 'normal' fire that you could just throw some water on (as umm, my non-logical Pisces self discovered).  Being gas, there was an element of unpredictability about it which for a few seconds there was very scary. It was a reminder, as I have been reminded many times, that anything can happen anytime - life can end just like that. Life can change, just like that. We try to control and manage everything, we are all consciously creating as much as possible, but even so: life has a life-force than is bigger than us, and we don't always know what it has in store for us.

We can't always control what happens, but we can to the best of our ability choose how we respond to what is happening. Unpredictable emotions and events are happening everywhere right now. It is part of our human nature to react with fear or panic or an angry bout of words when we are feeling out of control, or feeling that some sort of power has been taken out of our hands. I can't count how many such outbursts I've had lately, some completely irrational inner child moments while others are valid parts of my consciousness seeking to be heard. (This is after not only two decades of inner work, but also after years of feeling pretty calm thinking 'thank god I've moved on from those emotionally explosive days'!!) Yet, once that initial wave of strong emotion has washed over us (as is happening faster and faster these days), we are left with the trust we have developed over the years. We are left with the core truth of how we really feel about something or someone. We find ourselves in a quiet place of calm, clarity, or renewed appreciation.

We are feeling everything so intensely because a)  these energetic waves are releasing ever deeper aspects of ourselves, so that we can shift ever higher into more of who we really are and b) we are feeling other people's states as we move into increased sensitivity and experience a greater experience of unity consciousness. Sometimes it is hard to know the difference between what is ours and what is not, or what is ours and serving us, and what is not, so a general good affirmation to say is: If this is not mine, I let it go. If this is not serving me I let it go.

The waves are stronger than ever, yet our trust, truth, calm, clarity and appreciation is stronger than ever too. My fabulous cousin-in law, mother of four, once gave me a really great visual to help with the contractions of labour. She said to imagine that I'm in an ocean with waves, and that my baby is in a basket out there on the waves, and as each wave washes over me that the basket is coming closer and closer to me. We are all getting lifted and slam-dunked by energetic and emotional waves - and even if those waves aren't 'ours', we are feeling the splash from those around us. We are in this together, we are a collective and more than ever we can feel what so many others are going through right now. One thing to remember as we're bobbing up and down, is that each wave is taking us closer to our 'baskets'.

It doesn't look like it if we only look at the mainstream news, but with each wave we are uniting collectively for, and thus moving toward, global peace, healthier food production, more sustainable housing, environmental and corporate practices, and greater awareness around a multitude of social and health issues. With each emotional outburst, we get clearer about our feelings, we get clearer about the kinds of relationships and lives we want.

It can feel like you are drowning sometimes, or fit to burst, such is the intensity of these times. Ride the waves as they come, or lift your head up and take a breath (literally) to feel the quiet break point between waves where you can find your peace, stillness and truth - and see your baskets all around you more clearly.

How are you all feeling?

Thank you, Dana, for this! Beautiful image of the "baskets".

Light and Love to us All!
May we ALL know peace.
May we ALL be peace.
May we ALL know Love!

This may explain why I feel like a 'basket case' these days....

Thank You, Dana.

This message is greatly appreciated.

I feel like I have been set adrift, and am desperately trying to keep my head above the water.

I don't know who I am anymore.

And lately, I don't even care. My gaze planted firmly on my 'baskets'. What a great analogy!

I came to the realization last night that 'control' is the illusion. And trying to maintain control, is like trying to grab, and hold onto, the wind.

As I have spent most of my life battling for control, you can see why I am feeling as I am now.

It is hard to let go of something you were sure was there, but never was.

All that time invested . . . and for what?

The lesson within was the answer I received.

I believe that my Higher-Self has been doing most of the driving lately, because it is much more important to me, for those around me, to be at peace and happy, than for me to even consider to control who they are.

We are All Blessed with Free-Will, and So It Is.

Much Love and Light to All. :)

Oh my goodness girl you couldn't have hit it any closer...I too am Pisces (I know you don't have to be Pisces to have these experiences but I certainly resonate with your perception.) and I have experienced these energies exactly as you have described them. How validating your article has been to me. Thank you Love and Blessing...Pat Bowen

Dana, My tummy, my sinuses, and bones were all saying solar flare....I had no idea till I saw the next day it was an X class....body was freaking out of control....pain, allergies....all my weak spots....I also had some crazy emotional stuff that just creeped up.....not sure why electromagnetic energy can cause such things to occur...I wish someone had a physics lesson or two that could explain why the physical stuff hits the way it does....I guess it is kind of causing havoc with our own electromagnetic energy......thus causing inflammation, etc...

Wow, Deeni and Dana, all I can say is yes. I had no idea who I was at the first of the week. Something clicked yesterday and I too realized that no thought of self or control of anything would change anything at all and once my entire focus went to the happiness of others, swoosh, light speed transformation. The flares in addition to this new moon solar eclipse, by next Monday we will be completely transformed. It has been hard, really hard, but the peace here, on this side... Worth all of it.

Dana, I can so relate to the "emotional outbursts" of my inner child. Just yesterday, I had this horrible feeling of, "why am I regressing, what am I supposed to be doing differently, what lesson am I supposed to be learning?" I literally feel like I'm becoming my 19 y.o. self -- lacking self-confidence, needy, emotionally weak, etc. And each moment, I remind myself I am on a higher frequency, I understand my emotions and my connection to the Divine, I do NOT have to react as I did at 19. It's difficult, but if I sit quietly, meditate, and ask my soul what to do, I am able to rise above the, I guess. Thank you for your insights; they are always so timely...
