What Does Any of This Mean?
It means that you may personally feel like you are being tested on a daily basis. It probably feels like the stakes are higher than they’ve ever been, and like no one could possibly understand. And to top it off, things are happening and changing very quickly — all while you may be feeling stuck in the mud.
It’s intense, sometimes exciting, sometimes dreadful, and full of risks and unknowns that may cause you want to crawl back into bed before the day even begins.
Sound familiar? You are not alone.
What’s the Solution?
It’s not really a problem that needs to be solved. It’s a phase or cycle that needs to proceed. What’s more, the more awakened, alive, and centered you are – the easier the journey will be.
Here are a few tips:
- Practice acceptance and allowing. If a feeling, worry, or concern rises up from your un/subconscious – it’s better to accept its existence and to let it go than it is to push it back down. This doesn’t mean giving into it, or overly focusing on it. It simply means accept that it’s there and then make the conscious choice to let it go. This can be incredibly uncomfortable. And it calls for a lot of self-love and compassion along the way. These are energies that will help guide you long after the immediate sensations dissipate.
- Practice greater compassion towards others. Understand that a lot of people are in a lot of pain. When people are in pain, it can be difficult to be kind, or aware of other people’s feelings. When people are in pain, they can act out in anger. Don’t take any of it personally. Also, practicing compassion doesn’t mean putting yourself in harm’s way or putting up with other people’s crap. It just means to try your best to not judge and lay your own narrative on top of the burdens that others are already working through.
- Don’t get overly wrapped up in how things appear. For a great many events unfolding around you – it’s unlikely you’ll know the full story, and even less likely it would be in your best interests even if you could know.
- Trust your gut, now more than ever. Trust that you will feel when you are supposed to be and get involved in something, and then go for it. Even if it’s uncomfortable.
- Stay in the light.
