These times of change, where our awareness seeks answers for what we see and experience, and seems to grow in times like the most recent Hurricane Irene.
I have been trying to assimilate my perceptions with what might be our new reality. I think the next step is for me to blog it, in hopes to either gain validation, or learn something more about this Ascension process and my role in it.
Some of you may know my daughter lives and works in Washington DC. She is a young woman-22 years old-a recent college graduate. Because of that, this impending hurricane hitting the east coast of the USA took on a personal tone. As I watched online maps, weather.com, and TV projections of the Category 4 hurricane…my anxiety level rose. Even as I write this, I can feel my stomach tighten.
While my body was reacting to the news, I also had this moment of “clarity”…this awareness of-Hey Kate-YOU are the creator of your life…start creating!! ….and that is where my experience took on an alternative reality, if you will. I consciously told myself~send the energy of love and CALM to those in its path. Believe you are affecting the path and the level of energy of this hurricane….I meditated, I made a point of thinking these thoughts, sending this energy whenever I thought of my daughter. I kept seeing her as not being negatively affected-for she had signed up to be here NOW, and if what she came to do was important-then she would have to “weather” this storm. IF not…then that too is what we had signed up for…Can a mother really allow-let go?...for some reason I did.
The category 4 started to drop to 3 and then 2….were “we” really assisting Mother Earth in transmuting this hurricane? Were we really allowing it to play out for the highest good of all involved?? I was beginning not only to trust that I was, but also BELIEVE it!
I watched my facebook, for friends and other family members back east who lived in this hurricane’s path. My daughter called to say she was fine-going to the store to pick up a weeks worth of water, food that would not require refrigeration or cooking, extra batteries. Again, my body took on this energy that almost seemed surreal-where I felt a part of the grounding, the love, that exceeded my skin.
Later that night-10pm in California-1 AM in DC-our daughter called. My husband reassured her she would be fine-that she was prepared-afterall she just finished experiencing a 5.9 earthquake—and she had dealt with much worse in California-we lived in an area known for earthquakes-and high winds in the canyon-occassionally 60-75mph. I got on the phone, and told her I loved her, and that people all over the world were keeping her, and everyone on the East Coast in their prayers and thoughts for a safe transition. That sense of CALM seemed to envelope my body-and eventually-she felt she could go to sleep.
The next day, I read her facebook post: Painting my nails during a hurricane. Priorities.
I breathed a sigh of relief…she had electricity and a sense of humor.
So….I share this experience-in an attempt to share what I feel was a time of the world coming together-as one in Love for each other and for Mother Earth. Was it my imagination?? Is this what they mean about BEing ONE, being inter-connected?
