Bottoming Out

The tide is out. The energies are still. There is nothing. Very little if any movement, stillness, emptiness, perhaps sadness, dead batteries, feeling drained, depleted, wanting to cry, perhaps hopelessness, and maybe wondering where in the world we are now.

For those who are highly sensitive or tapped in more than most, the above scenario might be applicable. For others, you may notice that things seem to be drying up, bottoming out, ending, and with seemingly no future connection in sight. I ran out of hummingbird food the other day, and with the nearest store an hour away and nothing to make my own in my cupboards, I am wondering if they are feeling the same. Looking at the feeders hanging there quite empty, with no hummingbirds now around, seemed a similar situation to the energies of late.

If you are one who is already out of the mainstream to a fair degree, you may be feeling these energies simply by walking and breathing throughout the day. If you are more in the mainstream, you may be experiencing a substantial drop in your business, you may be using your last dollar, or you may feel alone, disconnected, and almost invisible. The energies may seem dead, flat, and nearly non-existent. You may try to be your very up and happy self, but may end up falling flat as a pancake.

Well, guess what? All, as always, is in divine and perfect order. Very commonly, we have this feeling and experience right before an energy surge. The longer the energies are out, the more powerful and substantial the energy surge will be that follows. We need to rest up and re-align before the next big whirlwind of energy arrives.

And during this big lull, we are still being prepared. We are connecting now to more deep and powerful energies so that we will be ready and primed to serve the planet when the energies of rapid manifestation return. This preparation and new connection can vary with each and every individual. For me, I experienced a feeling like I had been knocked out of my groove, then acute nausea, then spinning, vertigo and more acute nausea (the spinning Merkabah connecting me to my light body or a higher dimension), and then needing to eat every hour with a ravenous appetite. When we are re-structuring within we need a lot of fuel! The entire time I had energy pouring through my crown chakra (I think I have a big bruise on the top of my head now!). This only lasted for a few days, thank goodness, as I was so very tired of eating!

For others, connecting at a higher and deeper level can involve seeing lights, opening to a higher energy, seeing repeating numbers, feeling dizzy, woozy, and weak, or simply wanting to cry a river for no apparent reason. We may even think that we are depressed. If we try and jump back into our old grooves or into the swing of things again, our higher selves and bodies will say, “No. Not yet. You are not ready quite yet. Just wait a little longer.”

So then, this time of quiet is a very good time to prepare. It is a good time to organize. It is a good time to get things in order…because when the energies return in October, you will not have time to do much of anything except to hold onto your hat!

The fall equinox in September will jump start and bring in these new energies of October. So until then (and there is always a window of energy surrounding this date), we can feel assured by knowing that we are right where we need to be for now. We are always being lovingly and divinely watched over. We are always right on track even when we may believe we are not, or that something is amiss.

During this bottoming out period, we may feel like we have lost who we are. We may feel like we have lost our power or may not know who we are now supposed to be. Whenever we are being re-aligned or re-connected in a higher way, we need all of our reserves to complete this process. This is why I got so hungry, and this is why we may feel drained and lifeless. When I crushed my leg many years ago, I lost all my psychic ability. I had been very tuned in to another dimension my entire life, and thus felt like someone had cut off my right arm. I suddenly felt one-dimensional. But I was undergoing an enormous process of re-structuring and my energy needed to be present for this alone. This is what is occurring now, so we know then, that it will pass. And when we are complete with it, we will be much more connected to our God selves, our true authentic selves, and certainly to Source. We will then embody much more of the energy of love, and we will be vibrating much higher indeed.

When we are in this weakened state, we are now more vulnerable than ever before. In addition, the higher we vibrate as a planet, the less density there is, so boundaries naturally become much thinner. It is during these times that we seem to have boundary issues, or rather experience energies entering our spaces that we would rather not have around. But once we complete this process, we will be much stronger and be more adept at handling the on-going boundary situations that the ascension process creates.

So while we are in this state of flux or of seeming weakness while we are re-aligning, we can easily be taken advantage of….but this is only temporary. The ascension process knows what it is doing. We were not meant to suffer needlessly or to become flattened in a permanent way.

This time will pass, and when it does, we will feel incredibly awesome indeed…..

Wishing you heaven in your heart, starlight in your soul, and miracles in your life in these miraculous times...

Until next time,

Thank you Karen, for sharing your insight. I just recently had alot of the physical symptoms you describe and was at a loss to explain them, except that it definately felt like more than just physical, as the emotioanl/mmental stuff was going on also.

Would also like to thank Spirit Library for keeping the comments here on track, and the focus on where it should be- the message, not the messenger.

Thank you Karen for that message. I can relate to that totally. These times can be hard to deal with.

I also want to add, thank you Spirit Library. This has been one of my places of refuge for quite awhile now. I just started posting here the other day, when I felt I had to.

We are in challenging times, but we knew what we would have to deal with before we came here.

Together we will create miracles, and a new world.

Namaste! to you all.
