The energetics of this time are running hot and erratic. The pendulum of control, separation, and fear continues to swing on the arc of its current trajectory and will continue this swing throughout the world for a while. However, resistance is increasing as more individuals begin to recognize that we as people, the other beings on the planet (e.g. animals, plants), and the earth are all interconnected.
Many are also tapping into their heart, remembering their purpose and their core identity, and allowing these to begin to reshape their inner landscape. As their inner landscape changes, people begin to recognize the dissonance between heart-based yearnings and the fear-based external forces currently at play.
The pendulum will swing back and is likely to swing back hard before it settles into a new rhythm. We can already see glimpses of that.
This is a time of deconstruction and reconstruction. Increasingly, people are acknowledging that many of our systems are no longer working. Some want to ‘tear down everything and start anew’ and others want to ‘renovate the standing building’. It is into this mix that anger, grief, and sadness are swirling in this season of choppy and somewhat chaotic energy.
So, what can we do?
First, acknowledge that all emotions are legitimate. They are there for a reason. Feel them. Lean into them. Embrace them.
Secondly, don’t let those emotions take over your body. Emotional trauma is well-linked to a host of diseases and disorders. Let them move through and out the body through exercise, shaking, crying, somatic breathwork, or other methods.
Third, let the emotions that you feel be fuel for you. Use them as a catalyst for change. Identify what is important to you, and start by doing one thing to create the future that you want to see. Each of us are creator beings. Use your energy. Use your voice. Your voice wants to be heard. Your voice wants to be seen.
It is no mistake that you are here, on this world, at this time. You came here to help with change.
You came here to be the change.
