During this deep transitional phase that humanity is undertaking, it is SO often very easy to get caught up in intense polarity of our environment. The polarity is such that one moment one person or group seems to have all of the right answers or philosophies, and then a short time later, another person or group will seem to be in the correct space. I’m speaking mainly about the presidential elections here. Yes, this is an election that, for the first time, in a long time, people feel that they have a voice and can make a difference in the way they vote, and in picking the "right" candidate to bring balance and healing to an ailing system.
But we also must remember that while it may be important to go out there and vote and give our own personal opinions, these opinions can easily gather attachments around them that cause continued inner struggles, validate dualistic energy, and create another unbalanced situation. We don’t want to go there...because before you know it, you’re suddenly defending one candidate, which brings in the energy of defense within you, causing that same energy to be drawn to you so that you can defend even more because you, the Creator have chosen to do so. And the same goes for the energy of the candidate that you do not favor. Should you have and speak "negative" opinions of a person, that same energy is validated inside, thus becoming real, and seeking resolution by meeting itself over and over again within you.
Also, this idea holds true for the concerns surrounding our environment. Because we love this Earth and call this beautiful planet home, it’s real easy to become emotionally involved with her healing and at times, get all worked up over it. But ask yourself what this is actually doing. What is happening when you have an idea of the way things "should" go, gather emotion around that idea as if it were "the right way", and become attached to having a specific outcome? What if everyone that was concerned about the environment had specific ideas and judgments about the way the Earth is healing, how to heal it, where we’ve gone "wrong", and who’s to blame? Would the Earth truly heal? More importantly, would Your Earth truly heal?
In this time of enlightenment, the opinions that come from our minds, our education, our former beliefs, and our past patterns merely are there to be seen as an old energy that used to work but are asking to also become balanced. This is done so that these old energies can also evolve and no longer be limited. The conditioning that we have within us can truly be a booger to work through and seem unending as things come up again and again asking to be seen, loved, and released.
It is time to let go of how we used to do things in the past. It is time to let go of the ways in which we used to make things get better by pushing or forcing our thoughts upon others. Each person sitting on this planet right now is a Creator in his own right. Each person has the path to walk to find their own place of reckoning and balance which will lead them directly to their own enlightenment. And each person can no longer be influenced by groups or group opinions. It will only cause more struggle.
So instead of sitting on one side of the fence, per se, passing judgment, or throwing your energy out there to influence others to believe or think the way that you do, become the master of self. Become the one who gracefully feels the collective of thoughts, opinions, and judgments but doesn’t allow them to stay and become yours. Be the one who quietly breathes the breath of spirit and absorbs all of the new potentials that have arrived for us. Be the one that is strong enough to imagine a wonderous election, Earth, and Self and then trust that you, as a Creator, have already set into motion all that is necessary for your creation to take place.
This month and the ones that follow have the potential to become pretty stressful as so many energies are butting up against each other trying so desperately to find that resolution. But as long as you consciously CHOOSE how you live each moment of it, you will find that it’s more of a "ride" that you’re observing instead of being involved in. The moment is all you really have. It’s where You are and so, you’re in charge, so to speak, of it.
When you feel the intensity of the energies taking place and want to form an opinion or pass judgment, stop and breathe for a moment. Feel that these feelings, emotions, and opinions are really and truly just floating around the collective and through the old collective grids and are needing a place to get validated. You don’t have to be that person anymore. They are not yours. Feel what they feel like and understand that you can actually do this and not be effected. Then after breathing and feeling what’s happening, again place yourself in your "now moment".
You’ve experienced, in the past, what abundance felt like, what love felt like, what health and happiness felt like. They ARE there in your "memory banks" for you to utilize to create your reality. Bring your awareness to the feeling and understanding of what you truly - truly desire in that moment...because that’s what you have...the moment. Bring your awareness to a "happy place" of your chosing and feel it deeply. Feel the essence of it in your body. It is very real because you know what it feels like since you’ve already experienced it. That is your moment and where you create from. Hold on to that for as many seconds or minutes as you can and go back there every time you want to get all up in someone else’s involvement over something.
It’s definately tedious work...this process, but look at the bright side: This won’t go on forever, even if it feels like it. And your freedom sits just on the other side of these little issues that are ready to be healed and neutralized.
With Much Love
