In the changing tides we find ourselves in, we are being confronted by the old paradigm.
The ghosts of the way things were done before.
The outdated ways of dealing with them, the thoughts, and ideas of the past.
The beliefs that kept us held to a way that was never our choosing.
The maps and blueprints used by a previous generation.
This time is for throwing out those plans. This is a time of choosing our own beliefs.
This is a time of rebellion.
This is a time of changing how you want things to be. This is a time of reshaping the model that we wish to live by and reclaim the rules over our own existence.
This is a time of tapping into you intuition, your knowing and above all your heart.
This is a time of claiming with both hands the life we are meant to live.
Fear shaped the paradigms of the past and look how its all worked out. Things are in chaos.
This time is telling us that we have the power to shape exactly what we want and we can do so from a place of love, hope and being centered in our dreams.
This is a time of reclaiming sovereignty of our own lives.
It isn’t always easy but hell it is so needed right now and oh so worth it.
This goes deeper than the phrase “let go or be dragged”.
It’s not just about dropping everything, it’s about choice.
This is a time where we are being shown where things aren’t working and being given the fire and conviction to say NO MORE and to shape our future with our own fingers.
WHAT CAN WE DO DURING THE SHIFTS?
During these periods in which we are being asked to clear away the old patterns, one thing that we can do especially when we feel very frustrated and like we need to “do” something, is to clean and clear.
It doesn’t seem very glamorous, but getting rid of the cutter or focusing on detoxing ourselves is a very powerful way of clearing the space for the transformations that are coming.
Give away items you don’t need, write down old thoughts and limitations and burn them, clear away bad eating and drinking habits.
Anything you can do to set yourself in a cleared out and peaceful place can be hugely beneficial.
When you are done clearing the physical environment or if you are called to you can use some further clearing and blessing in the form of a smudge of herbs or incense. Sage, sweetgrass and cedar are powerful cleansing herbs but work with what energy you feel called.
If smoke isn’t possible, you can mix up some essential oils in a glass spray bottle with some water and use that as a spray of intention. You can even place a few crystals in there to further the energy.
Stay connected to your body & feelings during powerful shifts such as these. The inclination can be to shut things down and ignore what is rising.
When we are connected to the powerful compass of our body we are able to really tap into the truth of things really fast. Really connect to how you are feeling and how the things that are rising are feeling to you. When you are able to see what feels right/not right/what needs to change quickly based on your embodiment of them, you are able to shift things much more quickly.
If we ignore the powerful signs of what our body is telling us, it can create further hassle down the line.
During shifts, we can feel so scattered. Sleeplessness, restless and all the energy flying around can leave us feeling beyond frazzled.
Take some time to employ some grounding.
Grounding or “Earthing” is a great way to reduce stress and even aid sleep. Spend time in nature with your feet on the Earth and your face in the breeze, eat some root veggies, use some grounding crystals (blue kyanite, black tourmaline, black obsidian, hematite, smokey quartz), try an earthing mat, picturing your feet growing roots deep into the earth giving you a solid foundation.
These shifts exist for more than just stress and shake up. They show up to show us what we are wanting more of in our lives, where happiness already exists and what we want to develop further.
Take the time during these shifting seas to pay attention to where you get your happiness from and the messages that are rising from your heart. With the new shifts, we can be given the chance to look with fresh eyes at old situations and this can create pathways to the seemingly impossible that we never dreamed.
This is a time of allowing your deepest dreams and for having hope for the future. So open yourself to where you find joy, ease, comfort, love and peace. Have some fun, laugh and be silly. Not only does it feel amazing but it drops down the barriers that we can be holding up towards the shifts that are wanting to flow in.
This time is teaching us that we can live our lives from a place of joy and happiness. When we reclaim doing things from a place that feels good we fuel the positive shifts that are incoming.
Opinionated people are rising.
Parents and friends can give their thoughts and opinions freely and liberally right now especially in regards to how we are wanting to live our lives going forward. These can be coming from a place of being tied to an old fear based way of doing things.
There is a purpose to this. They are there to show us how we FEEL about things.
Again this comes back to being able to tap into and listen to your body.
If you are raging against what they are saying, if you are feeling miserable sadness, or know they are coming from a place where you’re not in alignment with their messages, listen to your body. Your body is a fine tuned instrument and knows the truth beyond words. Hear the messages that it is telling you and the lessons that are being taught from these mirrors.
In the end only you know what is right for you and this shift is about reclaiming the knowing of what you are here to accomplish and experience far deeper than the limiting imaginations and thoughts of others. So reclaim sovereignty over your feelings and don’t let anyone else govern them for you.
Never forget that you are always free to sever the chains that bind you.
We can choose in any moment to change our world.
We always have the power to decide what we are going to build our life out of.
This energy is just giving us a little extra help to make that possible.
Always remember that you were made for these times and never doubt your own power.
Shifting with you,
