2018 has finally arrived!! January felt like a transition month to me and now it really feels as if we have started the new year. There have been many twists and turns and plot changes in January and so far in February, and it seems the motto of “expect the unexpected” is relevant.
If we can embrace the unknown, have no firm plans or goals then these twists and turns can be something to regard as curious and treat with wonder instead of fear and trepidation at something that was unexpected and unwanted.
I really don’t know how this year will pan out but so far the energy of 2018 feel like it is the year of movement. Not action, because to me action signifies goal setting and pushing forward, whereas the energy of 2018 feels like it needs to be just about movement, no pushing or forcing or directing or planning or goal setting, just present moment movement that is in the flow of life. And much of this movement may be unexpected and catch you by surprise, but if you are in the flow of your own inner universe, this movement is always in the right direction.
It is interesting how years take on flavours or qualities of their own and how we go through cycles in our lives. We don't always experience these energies or cycles in the same way at the same times and they seem to represent those phases of life we seem to go through with endings, cocooning and then new opportunities moving in.
Much like the butterfly, when a caterpillar ends its life it leaves behind all the caterpillar joys, wants and needs, even the day to day life that a caterpillar enjoys is no longer relevant, then it spends time cocooning, re-assessing, building up energy and resources, before emerging into the world as a butterfly, with an all new way of life and a new perspective of the world around it from a much higher vantage point that the caterpillar had before. So even though the life of the caterpillar has ended, the life of the butterfly has just begun. And the opportunities that the butterfly now has, weren’t even a possibility for the caterpillar to contemplate, in even its wildest dreams. In fact, if a caterpillar ever dreamed of flying it may have even brought up many fears and been a terrifying concept, but as a butterfly flying is natural and exciting.
There certainly is a change in energy with the start of 2018 which brings us new perspectives and ways of seeing the world. You might even feel like a butterfly yourself, emerging into a whole new world with a different awareness and perspective. Something that you may never have considered before, suddenly seems possible. Things you never thought you would consider doing again, suddenly seem interesting. When we stop trying to control life and allow the opportunities to come to us that reflect our evolving perspectives and energy, then wonderful and unexpected things can happen.
As we evolve and transform so does the world around us through our perspective and awareness.
Stay open and be excited for the new movements in your life, no matter which way they take you.
I always find December in the lead up to Christmas has the most powerful and profound energy shifts. Personally, I have felt in my body the most intense energy changes, new energy moving in my body and old energy leaving in very dramatic ways. This is probably because of a few different factors. One, we have the solstice energies (21/22nd December) which are always powerful and there are gateways or portals that allow us to access new energies on 11:11 and 12:12.
Secondly our focus can shift from internal to external when we have so many things to accomplish for Christmas day (presents, shopping, cooking, organising for events), and so many parties and catch ups with friends, and we may not be integrating on a regular basis, so when we do have the time to focus inwards it can be a dramatic build up of energies that shift all of a sudden.
December is also a 3 month (1+2=3) which is about expression and creativity, and this could affect our throat and sacral chakras helping to clear these energy centres out. Which is why people may seem to “push our buttons” through our expression, and we may feel inhibited by the structure and deadlines surrounding the events in December. This can cause some energy to shift as we adjust and figure out the balance between our inner world and outer world.
The end of the year is also a time of reflection and readying ourselves for the new opportunities a new year can bring. So we naturally adjust our energy to accommodate and prepare for these changes, and the old energy may leave in a big whoosh to clear the slate.
I remember many Christmas lead ups where my energy shifts would happen at the most in-opportune times. For example a massive chest flattening, can’t breathe, crushing energy was leaving my body one Christmas morning. Trying to dress, cook and get ready for Christmas lunch I had no choice but to lay on the floor and move this energy through my body. Deep breaths and very loud sounds coming from deep within me were needed and the only way I could deal with this. My family gave me the space I needed and about 20 minutes later after much breathwork and noise, I saw the most amazing colour I have ever seen start to flow through me. I was dramatic and spectacular…. and then the traditions and schedule of Christmas day continued!
There were the other times when I was shifting energy big time, and needing to shop and cook, but all I could do was curl up in bed and assimilate changes through my body. Things always got done in the end!
We really do have to honour our bodies and the processes, no matter what is going on in the outside world. And when we do this, it is amazing how things flow and how easily everything gets done around us.
So if you are having a break and some relaxation time now, make the most of it, honour your body and whatever shifts and changes are going on with you as you prepare for the New year. If you are busy, use your intuition and inner knowing to prioritise, let some things go if you have to and always put yourself and your needs first before anything else. You can be of service to others much more efficiently if you are fully recharged and centred and aware of your own needs.
Happy New Year!
When we fail it is only because we were expecting a certain result.
Failure is something that we avoid. This is often because we equate the feeling of failure with feeling unloved. When we succeed we feel loved. But are we looking outside of ourselves for this love and success, so we see failure as another reason not to love ourselves?
If we are to live in the present moment and not focus on the future or the past, then we cannot fail. When we strive for goals that are specific in a future time then we expect these results to occur because we work towards them always with our eyes on the future. Sometimes the hard work and single-minded determination can work to achieve these goals, but as the soul leads the way, this is not possible anymore. We cannot override the soul with 3d grit and determination and control.
Instead the soul nudges us, the soul guides us to look at our outside life for clues to what still needs to processed and healed within us so that we can embody soul deeper and deeper.
Therefore these supposed failings, are just ways we can look within and love ourselves more. Signposts as to not what we think our mind wants, but what our soul needs. The soul thinks bigger than our human minds could ever hope to do. What the soul needs is not always what the mind thinks it wants for this physical existence.
The challenge is to work with the goals, desires, opportunities without pushing, forcing or manipulating from a mind/ego perspective, but to feel our way forward with the wisdom of the higher mind urging us to stop or move forward, and ever trusting that the soul-purpose way of living is for our higher good in ways that our human mind has never experienced before and ways that we could never imagine in our wildest human dreams would be possible for us.
As more of our soul is allowed to enter our body and mingle with our choices, then our physical lives and realities will start to show the evidence of this new world and new human and new way of living. It takes time, and there is always the pull and push to return to the ways of old as it is all around us, goading us and urging us to stay in this way of doing and thinking.
But if you are ready to try something new, just simply invite the wisdom of your soul and higher mind to lead you, to show you and inch you forward on this new path. Remember that it may not be what your lower human mind thinks will happen as this mind is ground in habit and ritual and past actions and results, this is a whole new way that has never been tried or tested before. Slowly and surely we can all live a soul inspired life in the flow of universal life and all be surprised and amazed by what this truly looks like in a physical life.
We will never “fail” again….
The world outside of your body and around you may literally feel like it is going crazy at the moment and this may be dragging you into the crazy as well.
There are world events, natural disasters and evidence of chaos everywhere you look. In the grand scheme of things this is just the world and its people clearing their “stuff” and resetting and it is actually not a ‘bad’ thing, but when you are in the middle of it all it can feel unsettling.
The only way to get through this is to ignore the outside world and go within and keep it personal and close to you.
You may be feeling forced to go inward because it is the only option left, if your outer life is going so crazy that you can't take it anymore. This is the only space where you find a constant, a beacon of light, your guiding force – the only thing that is REAL. The more attention and energy you give to the outside world the more energy you give it - you actually keep the “crazy” going. And the funny thing is.... this outside world is not even REAL, it is just a reality that is made up by many people who convince lots of other people that it is also real.... the only thing that is real, is that inner space within you. Because it is REAL TO YOU and that is the only thing that is important.
This inner space is so personal. This process of going inward is deeply personal. You cannot compare yourself to others or do what others are doing, you must follow your own instincts and try new things, even if they do not seem logical.
Constantly remind yourself to go inward until it just becomes who you are being in every moment. This doesn’t mean you have to meditate for hours and hours on end (although this would be great if practical!) just remind yourself to stay focussed on yourself and not get distracted by the world around you which seems to be screaming for your attention and urging to DO something. But the only thing you need to DO is to stay in your own space, your own energy, your own feelings, your own intuition and instincts. It really doesn’t matter what the rest of the world is doing.
You do not need to fix yourself or fix anything around you – just BE you and BE connected to the inner you (the real you) and not be distracted by anything else. The best outcome when you are connected to the inner you is peace and truth – this is all there is. It may feel like a temporary escape from the crazy world out there but over time you will learn that this is all there is – this is all that is real and what is happening in the world around you is not the reality that you want or believe in anymore.
When you connect with this deeply personal and unique process of going inward you may find that lots of things want to change:
Wants and desires change
What gives you joy changes
What makes 'sense' changes
Everything changes and therefore your reality in your outside world changes as a result of what is being projected from within you - from this inner you where there is only peace and truth.
Everything in every moment needs inner involvement. Do not do anything out of habit anymore check and recheck within – what really feels right in this moment for you, what do you desire/want/need to do for your soul body right now. And do not do anything just because other people are doing it - check with your inner self.... is this what you need to do? Does this reflect your inner truth?
The more we connect with the inner self the more the soul can take up more space inside our bodies and our consciousness. This means that old unprocessed stuff maybe making a comeback into your consciousness, so that it can be let go of. Know that anything that is not of peace, love and inner-truth showing up in your outside world is just something that can now be let go of.
Simply state this is now let go, use any energy clearing technique you know or just command that it is so. Take a deep breath and feel the weight shift and lift from your energetic and physical body. Then allow your inner soul light to move through the empty spaces within you – visualise this, imagine this or again just state that this is now happening.
This is how the world changes. This is how we make it through these crazy times!
By being REAL with the inner self, being our true selves and not by getting distracted by the crazy world around us and getting sucked into the crazy ourselves.
Have fun, keep it light, don't try and fix everything that is wrong, just go within, focus on yourself, and create your outer reality from this inner reality. Things will change, not only for you but for everyone.
A stage or symptom of evolution is no longer being able to feel emotion in the same way. This can feel good at times because you don’t feel sadness or anger the same as you did before, but you don’t feel happiness either. It is like a big empty void which can take some getting used to.
Many people on antidepressants can relate to this state of not easily feeling emotion. But unlike the medication used to stop the feeling of emotions, this occurs in the evolving person when they have evolved enough not to need their chakras anymore.
The 7 main chakras primarily process emotions, and emotions are simply 'energy-in-motion'. Each chakra is responsible for a certain frequency (or colour) of energy which represents a particular emotion on both ends of the spectrum. Eg the heart processes love and grief, the solar plexus processes power and disempowerment etc.
Emotions are part of the 3d/4d consciousness. In 5d there is a neutrality, an absence of emotion because there is an absence of right and wrong, judgement, and an absence of good and bad. Therefore we don’t need to experience the spectrum of emotion which is attached to the judgement of energy flow that we previously felt. When something happens it simply happens, it is not happy, sad or any emotion. This doesn’t mean a person in 5d does not enjoy life, there is a contentment that comes with neutrality and there is certainly bliss (different from the opposite of sadness).
In 5d it seems as if we lose our chakras only because we do not need them anymore. This is evolution. Just like certain organs in our body have become obsolete because of evolution (eg appendix) so to do the chakras. We still transmute energy through our body into our environment but in a different way.
The new chakra system consists of just one main energy point in the centre of our chest which allows our inner light/god/source to shine and project out into the world. We don’t seem to take in as much energy from the world anymore, instead we become our own self-sustaining power sources, filling up on our inner energy source instead of relying on our world and environment for our energy and information. This projection of inner energy also forms a type of “protection” around us, because of the movement of energy outwards, we don’t allow ourselves to take energy inwards (from the situations around us) and therefore don’t have to protect ourselves from unwanted energy coming into our field. This is very different from the 7 chakra system where energy from experiences and the environment was primarily taken inwards to be processed by us via emotion (energy-in-motion) through the chakras.
Children seem to be born with the 7 chakras and depending on whether their mother has the singular or 7 chakras primarily in place will depend on the speed of evolution in their bodies. Traditionally the 7 chakras took 7-8 years to fully develop in a child, whereas they may skip this step and jump to the single chakra which is much more in line with their capabilities. But their arrival in this world will bombard them with energy at first and they will depend on the closeness of their parents to filter this energy for them via their parent’s own energy system (7 chakras) whereas if the parent has the self-projecting single chakra system then this will fend off any other energies on behalf of the infant and radiate pure source energy to envelop them and help them develop their own evolved chakra system.
The single soul/source chakra system extends beyond the physical body. Because this chakra is so large and not “filtered” or limited by energy coming into it, then it can expand and reach further distances. This may even make some people “invisible” to the 3d consciousness and the 3d reality. It is again like a type of protection. When the world is going crazy then the 5d person with an evolved chakra system will not necessarily be a part of the drama and chaos and fear that is around them. Others will not “attack” them, "hook" into them or draw them into their drama because they will not even notice them. Those that are starting to be tuned into this new evolved frequency will however see the evolved human and follow to learn how to evolve themselves. There will be no preaching or coercing or even teaching, about this new way, just simply being in the world will help others who are on this path to see and learn and behave and change themselves. It is like a telepathic masterclass of matching frequencies. The more a 5d is out and about in the world shining their inner light through their single heart chakra, the more others pick up on the new chakra system and the new frequencies it transmits and this can switch on this system organically in other people.
So if you are going through a stage of feeling nothing, not being able to get excited by anything that used to excite you, or not experiencing much emotion at all, then tune into your chakra system. You can still “find” your 7 chakras if you look for them, but you may also have the single heart/soul/source chakra developing. Ask your body to show you, and the more awareness of this process you can develop the stronger the new system will become.
I believe that knowing who we are at our unique soul level holds the key to living an authentic and joyful life. Once we know who we are, we can begin to BE who we are, and then BECOME who we were always destined to be.
Thank you for your support of this work....
