The Core of Ascension is adaptability. It is merely a time of rapid evolution as humanity shifts into a blended focus of the subtle and physical realms. This focus accompanies a physical shift as the cellular structure must flow and adapt to a higher frequency, or expanded bandwidth of interaction.
To accommodate this physical shift, your mental and emotional focus (your subtle bridge) must change into a more fluid openness. Rather than rigid dependence on facts, it is a blending of factual and intuitive data. One does not polarize toward the limitation of either/or, one balances factual observance with intuitive potentials.
Freedom is an internal state of being. It is a learned behavior of letting go of unhealthy control and opening to the flow of Life. Jesus spoke of this as "the peace that passes all understanding." As you move past fear, you create a new safety in your data bank of understanding life. You become more open to new experiences, less imbalanced by criticism or opposition, more patient with timing, more loving with others and yourself—it is an evolved state of being. It begins within.
Trauma is a relative term. It denotes a huge event, but to define trauma actually depends on one’s perspective and sensitivity. Children have the perspective of being smaller than most of those around them. Empaths have the sensitivity to deeply feel the emotions of others. What is traumatic to one person, may just be an annoyance to another, but the effect can be just as real.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is an epidemic in my opinion. We are familiar with veterans or victims of war being diagnosed with this disability, yet I see this disorder affecting many.
Many adults have lived through a stressful emotional environment as a child and have developed life-long coping mechanisms to manage past trauma. Sometimes an adult will develop PTSD from a stressful relationship with a spouse, a co-worker/boss, an unstable neighbor or stranger. Trauma such as a home robbery, even where no harm was done or there was no interaction with the robber, can cause PTSD. The death of a loved one, divorce, financial loss—the list is endless.
The human psyche is prepared to deal with stress, some of it can even be useful. But in general, our societies have developed to create a constant stress of survival, competition, and fear. There is a foundation of domination/suppression that expresses in varying degrees throughout the world. This pattern of domination/suppression creates a vague (sometimes obvious!) stress that keeps humanity from their internal power. I'm seeing some deep patterns of domination/suppression beginning to shift in a new way. This is a powerful time of change.
The body has a natural mechanism of compartmentalization that can be helpful when one is not strong enough to deal with the truth, so honor your pace.
Begin by looking broadly at your response mechanisms. They may feel vague at first, they may feel as if they apply to something outside of you like the economy or societal norms. This process of observing will open you to allow healing and resolution.
Do you feel impending danger often?
Do you find yourself feeling held back, unsure, or incapable?
Do you find yourself afraid to speak up, worried often, or overwhelmed by “normal” things like being around a family member?
If you notice a response to a previous question, ask yourself why. Why do I feel [afraid to speak up]? Notice what thoughts surface. If you find nothing coming, let it go. Know that your answer will come at the appropriate time. It can be a subtle experience of someone popping into your mind.
Recognize and affirm your safety in the moment. If needed, seek help from someone that feels appropriate.
Let yourself express verbally—whether written in a journal, or shared with a counselor or friend—so that you can mentally understand yourself. Understanding is a bridge.
Let yourself express emotionally. Let your emotions evolve into strength instead of suppression. Emotional resolution/transformation is the “new shores” after you actively cross the bridge of understanding yourself. I often recommend having a variety of supports to release/resolve emotions. Some examples are friends/family, music, movies, nature, journaling, movement/dance, etc. Teach yourself that you are safe feeling an emotion.
To feel angry about something can be a healthy first step. It does not define your future, define your identity, or define your actions. It is merely allowing your human self to be loved and honored into a new wisdom. You will not stay there as you focus on changing yourself. You will merely learn to understand (mental body) and Love (emotional body) yourself into a new freedom and safety (physical body) on Earth. You are anchoring unconditional Love for yourself (spiritual body) and that will begin to shift how you interact with All Life.
Activate Your Divine Nature
Every time you release something, you activate something and vice versa. The invisible engine of life fills every space. As you release a trauma, you are slowly filling yourself with (activating) new information—the information of your safety, your capability, your strength, your freedom.
It is the work that creates a real change from within. It is the work that changes the human condition. A “trauma” can be a small thing, too. If you’re not feeling any connection to trauma (or fear, stress, etc.)—congratulations! The freer you are within, the freer Life will be to flow through you. You are so worth the effort. The rewards of internal freedom continue to expand—you and Life on Earth.
