We have gone through an intense and challenging time of transformation this year. We as humans are not alone in this process. Gaia (or Gai'ha as I like to call it), has been undergoing its own process, shifting, burning, flooding and powerful hurricanes, to break up and transform old energies. Just like the planet, many have been going through having their lives re-arranged or have plunged into a "Dark Night of the Soul". All of this is "normal" for an intense period of transformation on the planet. Experiencing loss of friendships, loved ones, businesses, careers, having to move house, etc create shock, disbelief, imbalance, even grief or depression. You may find yourself in a very uncomfortable place when this happens, but it always happens for a reason ie: to create transformation in our lives and get us ready for the next phase!
We can take a leaf out of Gai'ha's book and go inward to examine what is your truth, what still serves and to transform all else. It has been an intense time of cleansing and transmutation. Others still, don't even realise they are tapping into the collective consciousness and experiencing a sense of depression, anxiety or even fear as if these were their own emotions. It's time to become aware and to understand when you are tapping into the collective and to differentiate it from your own emotional state. This requires taking responsibility for your own well being.
This has been my own personal experience as well. Back in May I felt like the Universe just picked me up and put me on a completely different track. I thought I knew where I was going and what I wanted to do, then it all changed, literally overnight! It took me a while to find my bearings and to just sit with it, to trust it, as I knew there had to be a reason for all of this change. Sifting through my emotions, sitting with a project that I thought was ready to go and finding that the time was just not right yet. For the last eight weeks I have been working on myself to discern what is mine and what belongs to the collective consciousness. It's taken courage and determination to get to the bottom of it all on my part, but I finally feel like I see the light at the end of the tunnel now. It's taught me so much about myself, I am humbled and grateful for everything that has come to the surface to be examined. I know I am not the same person I was back in May this year and for that I am also very grateful. There's a new sense of confidence, I can see where I'm going now that all that smoke has cleared and I feel excited about the future!
The good news is that for the rest of 2019 a new energy and a whole new array of possibilities are available to many! It's time to start asking yourself "What do I want to create next?". Moving forward in a more gentle and self-loving way, because this has been an intense period of energy and your physical body is going to be taking baby steps. Rest assured that you will feel more confident, you will have more energy and you will have a higher level of clarity as the next few months progress.
Keep in mind that balance in life is the key! We can no longer deny our own needs and desires while trying to be of service to others. It's time to take responsibility for yourself and your well-being, so that you can be the best version of yourself. Then you can give the best of yourself to others. Take the time to rest when you feel your energy levels are low. Do whatever it takes to reset, nourish and nurture yourself, after all it's been tough lately and this process has taken a lot more out of us than any of us realise.
You will need to be paying close attention to any changes your body will be requiring. Whether that's more sleep, changes in diet, some gentle exercise, drinking less alcohol, giving up smoking or just taking some time out of each day to sit quietly and give yourself some space... it can be as little as 10 minutes each day! Don't you deserve some time for yourself?
These are the new foundational stones of your next chapter, make it the best months of your life yet!
