Solar Flares: Shaking Us Awake

Video Version with Commentary is here 

If you're feeling a little wired/exhausted/emotional/on edge, the Sun has released 3 X Class Solar Flares since Friday. October has been one of the most active Solar months in years with 22 M Class Solar Flares so far. For those wondering what's the difference between classes, flares are graded from least powerful A through to B, C, M or most powerful X class. Each class is ten times more powerful than the previous class, and has 9 grades of power, except X class which goes on without limit.

These recent X-class flares have been in the X.1 and X.2 range.People will say that the Sun has been more quiet than expected this year, and this has been true (until perhaps right now)– however our sensory awareness of solar activity has increased and our physical/emotional response to solar activity has definitely heightened – even for those who may not be aware of why they are feeling how they are feeling.Over the last few years we have all become increasingly sensitive to solar activity, feeling it on physical, mental, emotional and energetic levels.

These flares are playing an integral role in waking us up: triggering aspects of ourselves that we need to address, confront, acknowledge, be aware of, make peace with, transform, activate, use, or release.Each flare, or series of flares, seems to come with a ‘theme’. Currently the ‘theme’ feels to be revolving around remembering our potential (as individuals and as a society/humanity), and actively wanting to use and express it.  We are being made aware of potent energy we all hold that allows us to live our lives differently, if we so choose it. 

Thus we are no longer able to tolerate old patterns around restriction whether that be global and societal issues related to freedom, or personal issues around work fulfilment, how much joy/abundance/love etc you allow yourself to receive and feel you/we all deserve.We have outgrown our old boxes. We are pushing through old ceilings. We are seeing where we have kept ourselves small, and less than. We are heading into territory where we will look back and not be able to relate, at all, to who we used to be, and how we used to be.

We will think ,“We accepted that? We tolerated that?”  Whether ‘that’ is an old internal belief, or an external authority, it’s all up for an overhaul. Where past flares, and years, have made us more aware of why and how we've held ourselves back, now the emphasis feels to be more and more on 'more' - on how much 'more' of ourselves we can become, on the expansion that is available to us. We are re-connecting with feelings of motivation and passion after those feelings going awol for quite some time - only our renewed passion may be for new areas and interests previously unexplored with old dreams falling by the wayside as no longer feeling like a right match for us. 

For some, long given up on dreams may be returning, only this time with new beliefs that 'yes it can happen!'.Some people are quite rightly questioning whether the old power structures are actually on the way out when we still see so much evidence around us that old ways are still running the show – or at the least trying to. I want to speak directly to the concern people have regarding the “Powers that be” and the Global elite. People are highly sceptical that the so called 1% and those working in the shadows for their own gain, at the cost of the majority of humanity, will so easily let go of their grip on power.

Here is the thing: Power of this nature, over-powering the masses, relies on either forcing compliance on others (various forms of slavery) or manipulating people into compliance (making it so that people are not aware they are being over-powered, or believe that’s just how it is, and there’s nothing we can do about it). As we wake up the grip that this power has had over us lessens. We are no longer buying what is being sold. We are pulling the plugs out of the old systems with every viewing choice, purchasing choice, habit choice, lifestyle choice, opinion and comment choice, thought choice, ‘share on facebook’ choice and so on that we make.

We are putting our plugs into new sockets, and as we do so the old systems cannot help but collapse or be called to transform. The old powers can hold onto their old reins as tightly as they like, but if everyone is letting go of the rope from the other end and moving on to greener pastures, well, they will be left holding limp reins eventually.This is our time of choosing. The greener pastures are available to us, and we are here this lifetime to know that they are available to us. We are here to know we have the right, the capabilities and the resources to create them and expand them so that they are available to everyone.

This may seem like an idealistic dream and from the perspective of our current reality and recent history, it sure can seem like an impossible one. Yet for future generations, that is surely the reality we want to strive to pass on to them?  My vision is that my grandchildren will turn around and say, “Back in the olden days grandma, when the world had war, what was that like?” War will seem as barbaric to them as the Roman Gladiator days are now to us.So as the Solar Flares shake us up like a cocktail mixer, be thankful. Better to be shaken and awakened than…not.

Good morning Dana:
The class X solar flares are certainly doing their shaking up here in Canada, as we witness the exposure of one of the most corrupt and controlling Prime Ministers that we have ever been "aware" of. Whistle blowers are finally being heard like never before. On a personal level I have been challenged by old self worth messages on a regular basis. Your message has reassured me that I will make it, and not be left behind in the ascension process because of my struggles right now. Thank you and Nameste,

"We are re-connecting with feelings of motivation and passion after those feelings going awol for quite some time"

I have felt in such a 'void' for such a long time..goals??what goals...let's just live for the moment has pretty much been my motto..or remembering to for quite some time. This whole message is music to my ears, Dana. Thank you.

It seems that literally EVERY aspect of our solar system is shouting "WAKE UP!" now. It's no wonder I'm having such a terrible time sleeping! :)

I always appreciate your solar flares report Dana...they explain so much for me. Thank you. xoxo

Thank you Dana for this very timely message. I'm holding on for all it's worth---shake, rattle and roll. :2funny

Thank you, Dana. I always appreciate your perspective. This one is particularly relevant for me. Explains a lot. And you're right about the renewed motivation and passion.

This has been the most intense time for me ever; for my family ever. My daughter's fiance's mother committed suicide last Friday. I can't stop thinking about it, and I feel so bad for him. I don't want to be negative, and I want to be able to lift him up, but I don't know how. What do you say to someone whose mother hung herself?

Love, blessings and hugs to you all,

Hello Conni..Your comment immediately touched me. My deepest sympathy. It sounds like you have been very profoundly affected by this tragedy. Perhaps it will be easier for you to begin by sharing with him how sad you feel for him, and for her. I'm sure your honesty will create an opening for him to feel safe and loved with you. Acknowledgement of our feelings is a bridge that can help us connect in spirit. It also is important in healing the pain of loss. And perhaps he may not be able to accept his loss yet, but he'll at least know you are a soft place for him to land when he needs it.

I hope you both have peace Conni, and my thoughts will be with you.

Thank you so much for your beautiful words Lhat. I have been so upset by this tragedy. My daughter's fiance seems to be holding it together, but there is something in him that seemed to die with her. It's so sad. I've talked to him, but I come so close to tears (like right now), and I don't want to cry in front of him. I was where his mother was many years ago, and it hurts so much that she couldn't see there was a light out of the darkness.

Much love to you,

Thanks Mary, great to hear what's going on in Canada!

Keryn it definitely feels like that!!

Love Dana

You are welcome Bettina:)

I am so sorry for your loss Conni. There are really no right words, I think sometimes even just saying you have no words is appreciated more than trying to make sense of things. I used to always see things from the higher perspective but a big lesson for me was that our human feelings count and have to be honoured and felt, and people sometimes just need a hug more than words. Just be there for your son in law and daughter, she will need your shoulder I think to help her be the shoulder for her fiancé. I send lots of love to all of you. There have been many suicides that I know of this year. It is a difficult type of grief, anger comes up with the sadness along with all kinds of other thoughts and feelings. My thoughts are with you, Dana x
