The wisdom in, and of, the planet is emerging. This is helping to bring forth in us new creativity, innovation, and different ways of being.
But also coming up are the traumas that have been stored in the planet. Injuries against people, the land, and beings of all types. This is helping to bring up emotions and traumas in each of us that are seeking to be healed.
Dealing with these unhealed wounds can trigger fear and resistance - in ourselves and those around us. But the goal of these coming up is not to keep us focused on the past or to relive what has happened, but to allow us to release what is keeping us stuck.
However, the triggering of these unhealed wounds can also cause us to sabotage our growth to help ‘keep us safe’.
We. Can. Sabotage. Our. Own. Growth.
We can get super busy, filling every moment as if our moments only have value if they have something we can show for it - even if that something is simply a social media post or a purchase.
We can check out. Distractify. Look to alcohol, drugs, or other mood altering activities to help us zone out.
We can focus on the past; on what happened to us, our losses, our mistakes, where we've been the victim, where we have shame.
We can put up walls and keep everyone out. We can stand on our hyper-independence and send clear messages that we don’t need anyone else. [hint, we do]

How do we stop the spiral away from our future and step into the invitation for release and healing that this current energy flow is bringing? We first need to return back to the moment. Now, returning to the moment is different for everyone. But some things that help for some include the following.
Notice your breath.
Pay attention (deep attention) to whatever you are doing.
Honor your mind and body’s need for time away from your devices.
Connect to nature - even if it is through a window.
Make something with your hands. A meal. Garden. Doodle.
Give yourself some agenda-free time to go with the flow.
Connect with someone over coffee or a walk or a call. Talk about the real stuff.
Let yourself be loved.

Explore and find what works for you. This sort of opening and release energy is going to be with us through at least the spring.
And, if you’re not feeling triggers, emotions, and traumas coming up to release, yay! Celebrate that level of healing and see if you want to step into the new creativity, innovation, different ways of being that are also emerging.
