It is hard to deny the somewhat intense and deep sense of shift and movement occurring at the current time, particularly on the planes within. There is a profound wave of healing sweeping through layer upon layer of consciousness as each of us begins to shed aspects of our Selves, our lives and our paths that no longer serve a positive or life affirming purpose. Yet, this clean sweep is not blasé or gung-ho in shape or form, as every single thing we shed is significant and represents a willingness to create more space within as we step back from the need to define ourselves by the past or by aspirations of the future.
We have reached a stage of inner knowing where we feel ready to embrace the true vibration of healing and that is to find balance and empowerment through acceptance and love. Healing can often invoke a sense of incompletion as we strive to be healed before we can live our lives, and yet, the more we chase the state of ‘completion’ the more we realise that we have more puzzles to solve and riddles to untangle before we can reach that promised land. Therefore by seeking balance and empowerment through acceptance, we can begin to let go of the cycle of chasing completion through a fear of being incomplete and instead shift the balance towards love and wholeness. Although this does not ‘fix’ us, it takes us away from the somewhat perpetual and continual need to dig, probe and unravel in order to understand our Selves and our paths in life.
Of course, we will always dig to some extent as that is a part of being human, but there comes a time when too much digging keeps us locked in the past and chasing the future. There is only so much we can learn by what went before, and although the past helps to inform the present, it doesn’t create it, as we do that. At the same time, the more we gaze longingly into a future where we can feel Whole and complete, we diminish the value of the present as we fail to give it power or definition.
Yet, present moment awareness is not really at the crux of these shifts, it just helps us to become more aware of them. At the crux of these shifts is a willingness to unify ourselves on all levels; bringing together past, present and future, perfection and imperfection, fear and faith, light and dark...
This inner unification is not about surrendering to the ‘dark side’ (if indeed there is such a thing) or giving up on our dreams, but it is about taking a step beyond living conditionally and linear time to instead loving what is, exactly as it is, now. So many of us spend our lives defining ourselves by past events, past choices and past decisions, and yet we also know that many of our experiences in life are beyond our power. This begs the question as to why we continually choose to define ourselves by such things even though they are now behind us in the past?
Of course, it is hard not to let the past define us as it is already grounded and set in stone; it has happened and is therefore a solid reference point. And yet, we intuitively know that the present is our true reference point as the past is behind us. We can therefore become tangled up in knots trying to unravel this equation as we want to live now in a unified and balanced way, but we cannot get beyond the need to heal, fix and find completeness from understanding the past and shaping the future.
Such a conundrum seems all the more poignant whilst we go through this current wave of shift as we are being reminded that we are vibrant and awakened beings, connected to the Whole and an integral part of the bigger picture.
We have long been seeking new ground beneath our feet that feels solid and stable, but it seems that we are now ready to embrace a new way of living and being that involves us letting go of the side rails and finding strength from exploring unchartered terrain. Even though this new world may feel strange and unfamiliar, it also intuitively feels like home as we let go of the past, and of the clutter within, in order to take a deep breath of life...
