Astrologers forecasted April 2015 would be a tumultuous month, and indeed it has proven itself to be so. My experience, and the experience of those I’m close with, has been several days of intensity (all things up, down, and sideways, as one astrologer put it) followed by a day or two of breathing space where things even out and settle. Or jagged days where intensity and breathing spaces come in quick succession. It’s only in those in-between, breathing spaces that one can get some clarity on what is transpiring.
We’re dealing with two things: 1) the push and pull of the planetary energetics as the Ascension process evolves and 2) the reaction of the collective to those energetics. It is a combination of those two things and, depending upon your state of evolution, one may be affecting you more than the other.
In the first instance, it is, and always has been, about clearing our conditioning, dismantling our ego, purifying our Being. Because the push and pull of the energetics hits up against aspects of our egoic structure and causes it to vibrate, throwing us into reaction.
And in the case of the latter—the reaction of the collective—well, it is much the same. The reactions of the collective hit up against aspects of our egoic structure, i.e., the collective reflects back to us what we need to work on in ourselves.
The influence of the collective is not to be underestimated. We have over 7 billion people on the planet, most in very basic stages of evolution, all reacting to the energetics in their own way, based on their own limitations. Just the thought of it is enough to make anyone duck and cover.
And yet, that’s what we’ve manifesting here on Planet Earth. That’s what we all signed up for. The experiment in consciousness in the laboratory of life has exceeded it’s boundaries—specimens jumping out of petri dishes, cage doors open, sanitary seals broken…
So what’s a body to do? Other than go shopping, watch a movie, spend more time in Nature, exercise on a regular basis, continue meditating, and have a glass of wine?
Obviously, we’re being shaken to our core and asked to change in a profound way. When I sit in deep meditation and ask inwardly, “What do I need to change?”, the answer that comes is, “The very nature of the way you operate here on the planet”. At which point, my awareness goes super-fluid in order to demonstrate the point.
This fluidity thing we all keep talking about is going to get us in the end, no matter how much we resist. Even if we continue to struggle right up to our deathbed, when we pass over, guess what? Super-fluidity. And the longer we struggle against it, the harder we make it on ourselves. I’d say we’re standing with our backs up against the wall. On a foundation that doesn’t exist and with a wall that doesn’t exist. Except in our own minds. In other words, the game is up.
Many times in the past, when I’ve asked how to handle a seemingly unsurmountable problem, I’ve been told, “Expand your awareness further so that the so-called problem becomes a small ripple in consciousness”. It has never failed to work.
So, if we sit in meditation and expand downward through our lower chakras into Mother Earth, we find that She has already gone through this transition and is ready, willing, and able to help us ground and stabilize. When we expand upward, to connect with the universe through our upper chakras, this is where most of us really start to feel “expanded”. Then, if we let our heart chakra energy pool out in all directions… Indeed, if we allow our whole Being to expand out in all directions… That’s it. That’s where we need to be to experience this tsunami of change as a ripple.
Okay, so we’ve got the meditation part. How to live from that place?
Well, it is, and always has been, about clearing our conditioning, dismantling our ego, purifying our Being. And being aware of psychic pick-up. Hmmmm. Did I already say that? Somehow we always come back to that “purify your Being” part. : )
Bottom line: We’re all being given a choice at this time. Either cling to the structures of your mind and your control issues, or just give up and let go into super-fluidity. If we give up control, life itself will take over and direct the events of the life stream. So, what is it going to be?
