Perhaps you can feel it too. A profound calling to let go of the old and step into the new; a yearning to release that which no longer serves you while opening to more of your joyful, authentic expression in the world; a desire to wake up to higher levels of consciousness.
This has been my journey the past week. In one moment, I feel such deep and profound peace… and gratitude for the gift of my life and the experiences and people in it. The next moment I am on the verge of tears, but don’t really know why.
Then, it dawned on me… it’s almost May 20, 2012. It’s not just the day of one of the most important book releases of my life, or the eve of my biggest training event of the year. It’s the day of the Annular Solar Eclipse – which will affect the consciousness of the entire planet.
When I read an article at The Rainbow Scribe, my journey of late made more sense. Here’s an excerpt from that article:
Eclipses provide opportunities to release. This is a bit like deleting an old computer program, loading a new one, and then re-booting the system. Annular Eclipses have a very subtle effect on the Earth’s energy grids – releasing, transforming and healing the etheric energy ‘blueprint’ that can enable new spiritual archetypes to emerge into collective consciousness. These negative energy imprints can release and enable new, positive patterns to become encoded into the Earth grids.
As the eclipse releases these old patterns, held within the grids, it will bring the possibility for seeding a new expression of male power that is fully aligned with the heart – and the spiritual will – and so enables collective healing at a personal and global level. This marks the beginning of a whole new paradigm of consciousness.
This Eclipse also marks the ‘point of no return’ on our journey towards the December Solstice 2012. The more we are each able to release emotional attachments, thoughts and ideologies that hold us back from experiencing full conscious awareness of our connection with the Oneness of all Life, the smoother the transition will be for us. The May Eclipse brings a golden opportunity to create Right Relations in all aspects of our lives and stand fully in the power of who we truly are and what we truly believe.
I share my experience, and this excerpt, with you to help ease any similar discomfort you may be feeling. Remember, there’s nothing “wrong” with being on a bit of a roller coaster, it’s simply the unfolding of your life and the evolution of your soul.
Yes, it can be a little crummy to go through; I know it’s been for me. Yet, when I raise my perspective to embrace the truth that I am part of a much greater whole – a whole that is far more powerful, mystical and awe-inspiring that anything I can try to comprehend in my “mind” – I realize it’s not just me. I relax knowing that I’m not “crazy” for feeling the coaster take me for a ride, and I surrender into the ups and downs of the journey because it transform the ride from pain to pleasure… no matter what it “looks like” on the surface.
I wish the same for you; that you can step into a new paradigm, raise your conscious awareness, surrender to the mystical and magical journey of your life, and shine your light as a beacon of hope for a new world… beginning within you.
Be gentle with yourself this weekend. Breathe a little deeper. Walk and talk a little slower. Let grace guide you as you navigate this powerful time of transformation.
