We are seeing a lot of chaotic energy around at the moment. Weather has gone haywire. Schools all around the world have been receiving bomb threats on a daily basis for almost a week. Misinformation and fear campaigns are out in full force. Distraction efforts are at an all time high.
The energy of 2016 has the most power of any year I've felt before, and feels to represent a completely new phase to the years preceding it. As mentioned in the year ahead forecast, it is numerologically a year 9 (2 + 0 + 1 + 6). So we are seeing the end of a period that started in 2008, and we are being given a taste of the 2017-2025 chapter ahead.
2016 feels to be a year when millions of people are deciding or choosing or feeling compelled to step it up a level. Individually and collectively, more of us are stepping into our truth, and stepping into our power. We are taking inspired, conscious action be that walking away from old jobs, to changing the food we eat, the products we buy, the media we watch and the activities we engage in.
If the preceding phase was about masses of high-frequency energy entering and pouring onto the the planet from every direction, that is, power coming IN from some higher-vibrational source, then this current and incoming phase looks visually to me to be like a ball that is expanding OUT.
This ball feels to represent all the people on this planet who have received this influx of energy, and thus had it activate, and continue to activate, our soul memory, our innate gifts, our potential, and our power. As our memory/potential/power continues to be activated and expressed, it of course expands and increases, both in terms of volume (numbers of people), and our combined power potential/ability.
Imagine for a moment that this ball is in the middle of a bigger circle. The bigger circle represents our world and our old paradigm/reality structure. As the ball expands and grows bigger, it is naturally pushing out the old paradigm/reality structure. The old paradigm/powers that were obviously don't want to be pushed out and so they are fighting back - the result is a chaos type energy. The result is increasing attempts to control this oh so very annoying growing ball of awake, conscious souls who, gasp, think that they actually have power (or, oh crap, they are remembering they have power!!).
Yep we are those annoying souls who think we have power.
We are those pesky souls who actually have power and are remembering our power!
Damn that high-frequency energy that entered the planet. The powers that were really, truly, genuinely thought they could stop it, or at the very least harness it and use it for their own purposes. (C'mon, that's basic Energy Magic 101!)
Sorry. No. Not this time.
Look, I'm having a bit of fun right now with this us and them business. It's really all light and shadow. We have it within us, and we have it in the world. We have it in the cosmos. The powers that were represent our own disowned power. At the end of the day, and at the end of this very long game, we are all brothers and sisters of the light. We will sit around the Sun one day, and have a bit of a laugh together:
"Oh, you played the corrupt corporate dude so well!"
"Why thank you, and however did you manage to act so powerless for so long??!"
We'll argue over who is the most deserving winner of the Galactic Oscars.
"You deserve it!
"No you do!"
We'll hug and acknowledge how great we ALL are, and how much every role on this planet was needed to get us where we needed to be.
Back to the ball. It's growing, it's expanding. The energy that is being nudged out is creating tension, static and chaos with its resistance.
We don't need to fight it. We don't have to ignore it. We just need to stay in our ball and play our part in growing it and expanding it.
If something outside the ball annoys you, do what feels best in relation to that. If certain food or product production methods upset you, spend your dollars on locally-grown/made, eco-friendly goods. If a behaviour upsets you, ask yourself if you have that inside you and make a commitment to embody the opposite of that, or embody the same in a more positive way. If you feel called to shine the light on certain info by sharing links do so.
If you feel your job more involves you increasing the light within the ball, then do that. Do what feels right and true for you. You and only you are coded to be who you came here to be, and to do what you came here to do.
There is too much telling others what to do. "Don't get political", "Don't eat this". No-one but you knows why you are here. No-one but your soul knows what your specific role is. It might not be right for your friend to post controversial things, but for you it feels like part of your living and breathing purpose. We all have different purposes, and we all have different ways of helping the collective awaken. We are not here to add to the chaos by creating it inside our ball!
The ball is not a golden bubble where nothing difficult happens by any means. Maybe one day it will be. What it is is a place of truth, love, transparency and authenticity. At the start, as we get used to it, we will still experience those things that make us sad and disappointed. But over time, and I don't know if that means decades or centuries, we will evolve past that because we will at that point be adept at this conscious creation thing.
For now, up and down emotions and all, if an expanding ball of truth, love, transparency and authenticity is where it all starts, then I'll take it.
