It can be easy to feel isolated, and like you’re the only one going through it, during times of great duress and stress. If one shoe after another seems to be falling on you, it can also be easy to take it personally.
Though it’s not easy, it’s not necessarily personal, either. You may feel overwhelmed, but it’s a time that will pass, much like a storm does. Some storms are so intense that it feels like they’ll never end, but eventually they all do. At times they leave a great amount of destruction in their wake.
Spiritual storms do the same. If you’ve needed to clear the path in front of you, you might have needed to create a great big storm. There’s no controlling a storm, one must ride it out. If what’s been raging around you has been intense, it might be driving you deeper within yourself, so that you can find the answers that have been there all along.
There is a lot of completion happening now. This past year, 2010, has been all about upheaval, destruction, and completing old business. There is an old time finishing now, an old way of living and being. If you’ve already decided as a being that you want to participate in the new energy that’s coming, you’re very likely working on releasing the old.
You may have been doing this for a few years now, or it may have recently intensified for you. Either way, it’s a reality for many people right now. You might have already been feeling unsatisfied with how you were living your life, and decided to find a true meaning for yourself. You may have returned to a creative passion of yours, one you’d given up because it didn’t make sense or earn income. Your heart’s message may have gotten louder and you simply had to begin listening.
It might even have become pleasant to let go, perhaps this year you learned what was most important to you and let go of the rest. Maybe the loss of a job or way of living woke you up to the true resources you have within you. However it came about, there is no doubt that a time of living in one’s own truth is here. And anything that shuts down your spirit and tells you that you are wrong for wanting to become who and what you want to be, is lying to you.
If you are to achieve your goals, you may have some stuff to move out of your way, especially everything that’s not in present time for you. Old agreements with others: teachers, bosses, employees, family, friends, neighbors, acquaintances, adversaries, and so on… you may still have agreements you’re completely unconscious of. Facebook has been brilliant for this – it’s like a great karma clearing service. People show up from the past in droves, they find you or you find them, old energy comes with, and you all get to choose to be in present time with each other. Beautiful!
Completing the old can become easier when you consciously decide to do so. Meditation is a helpful tool in doing this: spending quality time being still and not doing a thing are important. Letting go is the key now. It is in the letting go that healing begins on a deeper level.
