Grieving and Anxiety About the Impending Losses

We are yet in another stage before the imminent arrival of the new, but as always, it is a necessary part of the process before we can move into the reality of our wildest dreams.

In this energy alert you will find information about:

Why you may feel as though you are grieving, sad, tense, anxious, and fearful;

What you are readying to match up to and why;

The recession and why we will not be affected;

When the new beginnings are actually due to arrive;

The sorrowful ending of my marriage to Phil;

A new excerpt from The Ascension Companion.

In order to progress into a very new beginning, we first had to detox and let go of all the seemingly unpleasant purging and releasing we experienced in 2007. The long process of 2007 affected many of us deeply, and we needed a time to release the human related effects of it (the stress and trauma, etc.). Part of January then, was a time for rest, tying up loose ends, and making some time for ourselves for self care and to tend to matters we could not tend to before, along with finishing the last few touches of readying for our new endeavors, or storefronts.

We also began the process of squeezing through “the tunnel,” or making our way to a very new “other side.” And this process was related to the detox process as well, as it created many severe aches and pains in our physical selves as we let go of the past experiences of 2007 while in this tunnel of birth.

Now, we are at the next level, and it involves a grieving for what is being left behind. We are indeed going into a very new beginning, and in order to arrive there, we must leave much of the old behind. This old is not about the remnants of our traumas from 2007, but about all the old of an old world and old reality that existed until now. This phase can manifest as feelings of loss, sorrow, great sadness, anxiety (as we can no longer hold onto our old securities), great fear, insomnia, feelings of insecurity and panic, a lack of confidence, heart palpitations, difficulty breathing, and guilt, to name a few. And then again, you may feel like weeping as well. (When I watched the Democratic debates the other night, I cried because of the viscous attacks!)

Whether we are actually experiencing real losses in the physical reality or not, we can still experience these feelings for no apparent reason, as we are all so very connected to the whole and to each other.

Arriving in a new land means leaving the old land. And we are still in the final stages of our arrival. As we progress into this very new beginning, we will automatically be matched up with people, situations, and much of everything that is now a better fit or more perfect match for whom we are and how we are vibrating.

In a recent energy alert I mentioned that our relationship to food would be different now. We would now be at a vibrational place where we would simply and naturally attract to us and utilize the beneficial aspects of everything we ate, without having to consciously select severely healthy foods. And this is how it will be in regard to our very new beginnings.

The new will arrive for us, whether we like it or plan it or not! The new arrival of things which now match us much more perfectly, is happening all on its own. Through the old familiar and divinely orchestrated Law of Attraction, we will be matched up with individuals and situations that are a much better fit to where we are now vibrating.

And because these new changes are seemingly occurring without our consent, we may feel anxiety and trauma, a loss of control, and a discomfort in regard to our own power. But what is actually occurring, is that our souls are navigating for us, and they always know what is best. They are, as always, our truest and deepest guides. And this is what is creating the fall of the old as well.

How do we know what is a good match for us? How do we navigate through this process?

At first we may feel great tension as we are not remotely comfortable with what is occurring in our lives. It can feel like friction or a great resistance in regard to certain interactions and situations that are in our reality. Almost like a poking at our energy field, or an irritating burr under our saddle. This is an indicator that the match is not quite right…not a good fit, as we are resisting or simply feeling “not sure.” Ideally, we need to feel a “YES!” instead of a “maybe…” or a resounding “NO!”.

Another indicator is that an individual or situation will simply and very suddenly depart. This energy in form will leave our space very naturally and on its own, and not because we have consciously made a decision. The two energies then, can no longer share the same space. And we may not even consciously be aware of why…it just happens. These situations are being orchestrated at a higher level, and all is then in divine and perfect order, even though it may not feel like it.

There are other situations that can arrive as well. We can come to in impasse in a relationship, but adjustments can be made by either or both parties, and they can then continue on at a higher level together. But both parties must be willing either consciously or subconsciously to continue together as they climb their coinciding ladders of evolution as a team. And they must also be a match for their next steps or endeavors together while being separate as well.

At higher levels of reality, we do not have just “one” person that serves to fulfill all our needs or even joys. It is not possible. One individual might be perfect as a spouse in a variety of ways, one as a working partner, another as a “shared interest” partner, and yet another as a compassionate friend in time of need, and so forth. In this way, we are all brothers and sisters and deeply connected as friends. In the old world, we seem to believe that all these eggs must be in one basket. But until much of our ego selves are no longer present, this way of being will not be a reality. So for now, we seem to find an individual who fits us in as many ways as possible, although not in all ways.

So then, there are many scenarios possible as we adjust and tweak our energies for this very new beginning.

If you are not sure about things, simply allow yourself to be. Do not feel that you need to be making any decisions right now. The dust will eventually settle if you can allow yourself time to have no agenda and to give yourself space for self care and peaceful rest. All will be revealed in its own, as each layer of deeper truth will float to the surface one by one.

You can also take some time to go to your deepest levels of who you think you are. What really and truly fits you? What do you want for yourself that does not involve what you think you have to or need to do? Disregard what you may think is “right.” Disregard the ideas others may have for you. Try and imagine letting go of any responsibilities you think you are supposed to have. What have you always been really about? Guilt may arise at this point, but if you can, simply allow it to pass and be ready to go onto the next phase of what you truly deserve, as this is your divine path of new beginnings. You are supposed to be on this path, so it is OK to be there.

When we experience loss, or a dis-connect from the old, we usually feel as if we cannot get comfortable anywhere. We may not know where we belong. Tapping into our true and divine selves can serve to re-anchor us.

The falling of the old, in regard to the economy can be affecting us as well, but we can know that we will not be affected in any way as long as we are connected to a very new beginning. The new beginning is in a new reality. If we believe that we are still a part of the old, or what is now leaving, we will most certainly find ourselves in fear and anxiety. The more we are tapped into and connected to the mainstream or old reality, the more we will most likely experience these feelings. If we can focus on what is coming, and not on what is leaving, this can greatly help, and will place us in a space of the new.

What is true and right for each and every one of us is what will remain. What is leaving our spaces, is what is not longer a match or what is no longer in our best interest in regard to our very new beginning. This relates to the old world as well, and most certainly the economy or recession at hand. These old ways can no longer exist, so hence, a recession is now occurring.

How will we survive? Quite easily, for a few reasons. Our storefronts will now be in great demand, as many will now be ready for what we have to offer. We are not tied in to the mainstream, so we will not be affected by it. “Isn’t the mainstream where the money is?” you may wonder. There will always be money, until we have evolved into a reality where it does not exist. Our storefronts are designed to bring in that money so we can survive while we are finalizing a lifestyle where we no longer need money.

Our storefronts are what will still tie us to the old, but we will only be involved in these storefronts for limited times, as they will exist in part in the reality of the old and we cannot be there for long periods of time. Our storefronts will contain energies of great compassion and love for others. This in itself is a higher vibrating energy and allows for them to continue existing.

In the meantime, we will be connecting with our “families,” or communities, as we begin creating the New World, which will not be connected to the old. And this New World will evolve into a reality where no money exists. Some might say and have possible epiphanies of higher states of consciousness regarding how things truly exist at higher levels, and rightfully so. But we can only be where we are now. We do not exist at these higher levels yet in form, even though we may get glimmers of them. We are evolving into them, and the vast majority is not living in these much higher states of consciousness yet. This is how evolution works. We evolve, the masses catch up, and we evolve again. Even though we may believe that things should be this way or that way, we must first be these ways ourselves before we are a match for them, or before we can arrive there. Just having them in our heads is not enough, but it is the beginning.

There will be another opportunity for accessing a higher reality that will occur on February 11th. This date, and the windows of energy that surround it, will serve as an anchor and support for the arrival of the new. This will be a pivotal point in regard to the new. So we still have some time yet, even though things will begin unfolding in a leisurely way before then.

At the core of our being, we want everyone there with us. We are very much a part of a vast whole, deeply love each other, and want to be together with all our brothers and sisters.

I have shared with you over months past a wonderful man named Phil. And because you have shared with me, I must continue in this sharing. Phil and I can no longer be together as we once were. With respect for his privacy, I am not able to reveal any details of our sudden and deeply sorrowful parting. This has been a most difficult time for us both, and I have grieved over this loss and the loss of a dream that could never be at the depths of my being. I have never cried so many tears.

Does this mean that there will never be any hope for new relationships, and that they never work out? Please know that it does not. I so greatly appreciate the love and support sent our way by all of my readers in regard to our marriage. I am unable to go into our personal details, but know that wonderful relationships, and marriages that last forever are always a possibility.

As we go through this latest phase of readiness for our very new beginnings, always know that we are in this together, as the brothers and sisters we came to be.

If you are not a subscriber to the email notification list that a new energy alert has now been posted on this web site, I have created a special page linked to this energy alert that includes a book excerpt that you would have missed if not an email subscriber (the emails always contain free book excerpts). It goes into much more detail about the ascension experience of loss that many have experienced. Access this excerpt.

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

Until next time,

Please be cautious about the information you release. Your comments lean to the side of fear. There are many resources that are out that address the changes. There is nothing to grieve about, but to rejoice that finally that ascension is in full swing that the new earth is coming through. Read the new book the GAIA Project and see what is happening, please.

But there is a lot of grieving in the air..... Can't you feel it?

You can not embrace the joy until you are finished with the old stuff. You can not force the joy. It will come when the time is right and that is different for every one of us. I'm very sensitive to different energies and there is no joy in sight where I am at the moment - not yet. I know it'll come.

Thank you Karen. You are the best and you know better than anyone else. Take care of yourself.

You can not embrace the joy until you are finished with the old stuff. You can not force the joy. It will come when the time is right and that is different for every one of us.

Fully agreed. I can try and force joy in however I want, but still, until I deal with an old stuff for me it was futile. Glad to see someone else has this experience too.

I can say that I was already sensing fear and anxiety, plus quite a few discomforts in my body and now reading Karen gives me a little relief!! It's good to know that I'm not alone in this, that there is a reason for all this and that will pass. Of course people that dont sense fear or anxiety dont have to force themselves in feeling them to prove something. Good for them and please keep radiating the light of joy for others as many times we have already done.

The information you give us is so much valuable! Thank you for the guidance.

Right, as Mariu mentioned, not everyone will experience this and that's great. Generally, channellings of this nature are meant to address the common experience. These are not personal channellings, and as such you should not strain too hard to fit it into your own life experience if it doesn't apply the same way since if it is addressing 80% of people, you may fall into the 20% that are not affected. For example, I haven't experienced any anxiety, fear, or loss and that's probably because my life was more balanced. I have, though, felt a lightening of a temporary difficulty in manifestation in my professional life and also additional awareness of a slow-down I need to make.

Anyway, if it doesn't seem to apply to you, my advice is just move onto the next channeling :-)

Exactly!! You expressed it so well! And I got even more clarity myself! :smitten:
