This time period offers perhaps the greatest lessons one could ever hope to be present in and learn. There is an enormous energy shift with changes afoot, and these changes are gaining momentum. People are waking up, shifting, noticing that things are no longer what they thought or were taught and humankind is experiencing deep and steadfast personal transformation.
The most profound observation is the number of people that are becoming aware that their “day job” isn’t who they are, and that they basically can’t stand it much, if any longer. Most are burning out, and in this process are releasing who they are not, so that they can embrace who they are. As individuals and then as communities, they are experiencing that the real-deal is in the restorative and healing journey, not the brass ring of the destination; reaching for the brass ring has gotten tedious, hypnotic and wearisome.
People are recognizing that their lives (their behind the scenes) don’t look like the tell-a-vision shows, have nothing in common with the highlights of other’s experiences or have very little to share with their earth families. They feel alone and confuse aloneness with loneliness – the aloneness is necessary for the empowerment of self-enquiry and healing; the loneliness is also necessary for creating the desire of connecting with others who are like-minded, awakened and healed.
Ah, the Renaissance is here … at its core, historically speaking, the Renaissance period was a movement dedicated to the rediscovery and use of classical learning, that is to say, knowledge and attitudes of great thinkers being expanded and expounded upon. We’ve come full circle, we’ve had our fill of the high stress, the distractions, the constantly being available to the outside world.
The shifting is an awakening to welcome and appreciate that we are healers, we are peaceful, we are loving, we are kindness, we are compassion, we are understanding, we are Love. As for our jobs, now is the time to open our proverbial storefront and start sharing our gifts with the world. Ask yourself what gifts you may wish to share – are you a teacher, a gardener, a knitter, a baker, an organizer, a storyteller, a sculptor, a companion, a tradesperson, a singer, an author, a musician, a healer, an artist, a caregiver, a scientist, a truck driver, a blanket weaver, a weather guide, a historian, a gadget creator, a designer, a shaman, a home builder, an animal communicator, a life between life facilitator – the list is endless and full of potential and possibilities. You cannot fail to be successful at your storefront if you are doing something you Love.
Please remember your compassionate heart, as these changes and transformations are increasing in velocity. In using your compassionate heart, you will be able to be of service to others if you see them breaking; they are in actuality breaking down, so that they can break through to break free. Breaking free of who they no longer are, releasing what no longer serves them, becoming who they truly are.
People want off the hamster wheel of life, they want to connect back to themselves, to rest, to think deeply, to contemplate the ancient peaceful ways in order to create new ways. The need to meditate rather than medicate couldn’t be more essential; all our emotional energies are shifting, awakening and transitioning.
All that needs to be done at this very moment, is to simply be, be in this pause of transitioning, and most of all, stay centred, stay relaxed, and be an aware observer of what is going on inside of you. Listen to your inner voice, it will always guide you to be and do exactly as you are intended to be and do. Release any uneasiness, it’s not worth carrying with you; if things appear to be falling apart let them be – you will be guided when to put them back together, if at all.
Remember that you are being called forward by your higher self to fulfill your original spiritual blueprints. Release the spectacles, clamour and encounters that you may find yourself in; these are spiritual tests to see if you are really listening to your inner self, asking you to make the commitment to do whatever it takes to shake off the social conditioning and be who you truly are and came here to be.
We are all in this Renaissance awakening together!
Leaving you with peace, love, understanding, awareness and wisdom (and of course, big hugs and butterfly kisses).
