Once again the news is full of unsettled energy. It’s time to wave goodbye to one head of state and say hello to the next one. Not here in the UK but across the pond in the USA. I usually ignore politics because the truth is very hard to find.
Yet as we wave goodbye to 2016 we are looking at a very different global set up arriving in 2017. The issues arising on the global stage are based on claim, counter-claim and counter-counter claim. I find it hard to believe anything at the moment as so much gossip, scare-mongering and aggressive gaslighting is flying around. But I also notice the same energy is around at a UK or local level. Wave after wave of reports about the NHS in crisis, denials, hard or soft Brexit, digging for personal dirt about leaders and the knotty issue of immigration. Where is the truth in all of this.
Of course I know that there are always more than two or three sides to every situation. But I also know that in trying to unravel what the issues are we get lost in a wave of ‘only my view is right’ statements. As if there was one ultimate truth but it only belongs to the viewpoint of one person. I’m a great believer in the truth will out. It was one of my Nanna’s sayings. I heard it a lot as a little girl. It was her response when she knew she wasn’t getting the whole story from someone. And that’s how I feel 2016 has left us. At all levels not knowing what it’s all about.
The wave that is racing towards us now feels like it will wash away all the false fronts I see around us. In fact our only way of making meaningful changes in 2017 will be to get to the heart of the issues that face us as global citizens.
But I feel it’s only fair to point out that those issues arise close to home too. Not only in some place a couple of thousand miles away. In another community or country. The issues are within each one of us. I like to believe that I’m full of love and light. I know that’s not true. It isn’t true because I’m a human being. I am light and shade. There are good days and not so good days. I am affected by the waves of energy flowing in our global community too. That’s why it’s hard to see how our world leaders behave. To notice all of the hidden agendas. And to see the truth only presented when they have been caught in the act.
My Guides set me an enormous challenge when they made themselves present in my life. They knew it would take me a lot of soul searching. That perhaps at times I would want to give up and go back to a fake reality. But they have stood by my throughout. I have learned not to judge, gossip, spread roumours, lie, flatter, dismiss or disrespect. Firstly myself. Then other people. On a good day I can keep that wave of spiritual behaviour going. On a less good day I get soaked by the spray. Occasionally I emerge half drowned. Once or twice I’ve thought I had died. Or at least moved so far away from my spiritual life that I was as good as dead.
So how do I keep going? What can I do in 2017 to help the truth emerge?
I’ve been thinking about this whilst I’ve been doing my healing work today. It starts with me aiming for more good spiritual days than not. Of removing myself from energy that carries with it negativity. I avoid gossip anyway. So I’ll keep on doing that. Looking behind what I’m hearing and seeing, I’m going to keep searching for the truth of all situations. I’m determined to send out as much healing as possible. To the planet, the animal kingdom and to every single person here on Mother Earth. I include myself in that. Along with the wish for everyone to be well I’m sending positive energy to generate hope and peace.
In 2017 I’m also going to move through my life with as much positivity as I can muster. With an attitude of wellbeing rather than ‘dis-ease’. Thinking well of myself and everyone else as much as I can. Letting everyone voice their truth and looking for the good inside the words. Doing the best I can to be all that I can be. Hello 2017!
Day 423 of my blogging challenge.
At the moment I feel like I’ve stepped onto a carousel. As soon as I feel I’ve reached a completion point something else makes me turn around again. I’m relaxed about it though because I know the Universal energy is in chaos right now.
One of the things I try my best to be aware of is when the energy turns. Like the wind changing. Or the tide turning. Suddenly I’m thrown back off balance. My personal energy can turn the opposite to where it’s been and I can feel exhausted too. In these moments I always get the same picture in my mind. Me balanced precariously on a surf board trying to stay upright when a big wave is trying to dunk me in the water. In other words, my emotions are flooding in and I have to ride out the feelings that could overwheleme me.
Today it was Mum feelings. I’m sure anyone who has been around a teenager will understand. Even if you aren’t a parent of one. Thinking back to my teenage rebellions I know I could turn in an instant. Miss Nice became either Miss Naughty or Miss Nasty. All because I didn’t really know who I was for sure. And that made me feel frightened. I wanted to stay a child but also pushed everyone to be accepted as an adult. It was a muddle. So there were tears, anger, tantrums and tiredness. Actually I’m surprised I survived realatively unscathed. Though I’m not sure my parents would agree.
I wanted to write about this because we are due another turn and twist to the energy vibration in a couple of days. It’s already making itself felt. But the wave hasn’t peaked yet.
This shift may make you very uncertain who you are. Or what you want. I know that this is a push for all of us to be and act in a more adult way. So a key aspect will be the question who am I? Along with what am I doing? Also, how do I act as an adult rather than a teenager in my world? The planet faces some big problems right now. As forecast a long time ago the structure we have become used to is breaking down. We can’t be sheltered and parented any longer. Those who have been doing so will have to turn off all the control. I and everyone else will have to take responsibility for the lives we are manifesting for ourselves. And responsibility for the imbalance of manifesting that leaves some people with much and far to many with little.
My understanding of this shift is to give us more free will choice instead of less. I recognise that we have gradually been giving away our free will, for all sorts of reasons, for a very long time. To turn this around will be a very big shake up. But that is what is happening. And I know the way through it all will be to focus on doing what is necessary for me to accept my adult rights and responsibilities. So I have a strong focus on the things I need to put in place in 2017. The work I need to do. The areas I need to grow in. And the healing I still need to do for myself.
If I choose to I can pass through this energy calmly. I can accept that one phase of exsistence is over. I can leave the teenager behind and begin my adult life. I’m ready. Are you?
Day 388 of my blogging challenge.
We are coming to the end of five years where the energy has been all about facing our fears. Bit by bit we have been asked to look at what we worry about most in our lives. It’s been an inner journey so that we can eventually produce an outer change.
For some time I’ve been picking up the incoming energy feed. I know that there is going to be another great shift in 2017. In the transition from old patterns into a new global community of humanity there is a lot of stuckness to be recognised and faced head on. Holding my inner self steady as I’ve worked through my fears has been a balancing act. One where I have wobbled a lot. Because letting the fears surface and be dealt with is hard. I have buried some so deep it’s been like a mining expedition to get them to the surface. Yet they have to be released from me. Otherwise I will be caught in the same old same old when the new energy hits.
I don’t want to miss out on any opportunities that are coming my way. I certainly don’t want to have to wait for them to come around again. So I’ve been focused on exploring my inner world for the past five years. It’s certainly been a revelation. I never quite understood how much of my behaviour was conditioned or limited by others. It seems I wasn’t used to letting other peoples opinions of me matter far too much. No wonder I found at times that I was surrounded by judgements, negativity or controlling behaviour. So it’s been a challenge for me to recognise I manifested that into my life.
I know we all want to feel like we belong. Sometimes we want to belong so much that we find ourselves trying to keep others happy at our own expense. Inner happiness can be hard to accept in a world where what seems to matter is outward appearance.
Yet the last five years have been all about noticing my outward world. Then working out if it reflects my inner world. Of course, when I realised it didn’t match what I wished for myself I was on notice that I had to change. Perhaps not outwardly at first. But I had to find ways of doing things differently. Manifesting or the law of attraction or cosmic ordering. They all follow the same universal rule of cause and effect. Or, as I like to put it, what you give out you get back. I’ve finally stopped rescuing people or situations. I make a point of treating myself well and putting my needs first. Being open to receive I expect nothing but the flow of abundance. In being ready to receive, and doing so at every opportunity, my inner world is all about being loving and compassionate to myself.
As I’ve learned, if I am able to feel that way inside then I am genuinely able to give that same energy out to others. In 2017 I expect to receive so much. But the best part of that is it means I will be able to give so much more outwardly. My inner and outer worlds will balance. However, I’m still a work in progress. I haven’t got the balance yet. This morning I was sitting having one of my ‘weekend’ days. Time for me not work. But there was still a niggle in the back of my mind. A list of all the things I still had to do. A sense that I ought to rush into work and do them. Never mind the 10 or 12 hour days from the previous week. Get the work done.
I resisted that urge. It was time to hold out for a day that gave me a chance to relax. So I met some friends for coffee and enjoyed much needed down time.
Resisiting the pull of work – the fear of leaving things undone – reminded me how far I have progressed. There are still some strong energy waves to come in this year. They will be surfacing more fears and stuck patterns. For all of us. World events reflect this too. Whilst we are being shaken loose of our fears there will be a lot of negativity around. I’m focused on holding the balance within myself. If I remain positive within then I can help that energy to manifest in my outer world too. Whatever fear arises we can all contribute to a fearless outcome. When you pay attention to your inner world you will be doing the best thing you can to ensure that you are living in a positive outer world. Go gently through the remainder of 2016 ?
