This past year and a half on Planet Earth has been pretty intense, energetically. If you tell a group of people that they can’t go out and associate with others, must stay at home, and may not even be able to work, they will be upset to say the least. They will probably also be angry, frustrated, unhappy, and possibly depressed over time. And that negative energy will be palpable wherever that group of people reside.
Multiply the number of people in “that group” to nearly as many people as there are on the planet, and you have quite a mass of bleak, pessimistic energy that has coagulated in the collective field around the planet for the past year and a half. And that energy has continually fed and reinforced all of those people’s fears and negativity on an ongoing basis. Life on Planet Earth has not been a picnic by any means.
The good news is that we have all been faced with solving the dilemma: how to be “sane and normal” in a world that has seemed insane and anything but normal. It has been a call to us all to rise to a higher level of understanding and functioning in which we learn how to be true to ourselves even more. It has not been easy for many for whom depression and isolation got the best of them. However, for many of us, it has been the “opportunity of a lifetime” to really be with ourselves and get to know ourselves more deeply.
We have all had to figure out what is best for us during this time and the need to live our Truth has become more and more important. How do I take care of myself? And, how do I interact with others in a way that also nurtures me deeply? In the past, we may have often said “yes” when we meant “no”; and now we have an opportunity to “re-wire” those parts of ourselves that have put our own needs on the back burner when others are around.
This has been an incredible time to start telling the Truth to ourselves at a deeper level and realize what we truly need to feel okay and secure. Planetary-wide, it’s as if the proverbial “rug” we’ve been standing on for so long — that has provided a sense of safety and security — has been pulled out from under us. And we’ve all been shaken to the core. It’s not quite as bad as Humpty Dumpty struggling to put all his pieces together again, but there are similarities.
When you know you are on a spiritual path, working toward self-realization and developing your full spiritual potential, then you absolutely want to view this past year and a half as a major blessing. It’s as if we were all made to “get into our cocoons” and told “not to come out until you are ready.” The universe actually complied with the process of transformation and rebirth that has been upon us all. And the more time you were able to spend with yourself — taking care of yourself and living your Truth — the freer you have become.
If there are places in your life where you have listened to the advice of others instead of listening to your voice from within, you’ll want to forgive yourself. We’re all here to learn and grow and sometimes we need to “do what other people want us to do” for a while, until we’re ready to trust our own hearts and guts about what is really right for us to do. Sometimes we get stuck in blaming them for being so pushy or controlling, when in truth, we didn’t feel safe enough to trust our own intuition.
Living your Truth in a world that wants to dictate what is best for you can be tricky indeed. It takes a certain strength of soul to be able to do this. If all your friends and loved ones say, “Go left,” and you really want to go right — what do you do? You don’t want to be excluded or ostracized by them, AND you want to be true to yourself.
Tap into your ability to be the spiritual warrior that you are, and trust that your Higher Self and the God within you is telling you to go right. Ultimately, it is crucial to listen to that voice within, even if it’s steering you in a different direction from the others in your world.
If your intuition is steering you right when others are going left, you have to trust that this is for your Highest Good. You want to be true to yourself and trust that your path is right for YOU, regardless of the choices others may be making for themselves.
