Chaos seems to be a constant in our time. We are feeling the energy shifting around us with more frequency. The earth and the universe that surround us are in constant change. We are feeling the frequencies of both love and chaos enter into our lives. We have to be sure that we are preparing ourselves for the cycles ahead.
Welcome to 2012.
I am not going to talk about the doomsday events, nor am I going to talk about the coming wave of light beings, and we will be sure not to talk about the mother ships lovingly circling the earth, but we have to admit this has been an interesting year.
2012 is what I like to call the year of expectation. It’s a very powerful and spiritual time, and as a global society we have energized it with a vibration of spiritual change. For better or worse, we are all “expecting” that something or even nothing will happen. Within the “something-ness” and “nothingness” of this year are a multitude of layers. Poles are shifting, the weather has been intense, violence has been on an increase, and mother Gaia is shrugging her shoulders.
As new energy comes in, old energy goes out. Dimensional energies are also merging. We are in 3rd dimensional density. This is our tangible reality. Just beyond us is the place where thought becomes manifest. One of the theories is that as 4th and 5th dimensional energies begin to merge with our more dense reality we will see thought become reality in an instant. Many of us are feeling the pushing sensation, the call to do something greater than what is right in front of us…and many of us are taking to the call. For others, this call is bringing conflict. Trust is not something we do well with in this density, but it is a big part of the spiritual process. Trust that when you take that step out into the world, that the universe is going to be there. Just as when you inhale, we seldom guess if the air is going to fill our lungs… it just does.
Love and chaos are beautiful dancers. In Chinese philosophy it is thought that through chaos all creativity is born. We are creating new realities constantly. Each breath is an action of dying, and then being reborn. We have to learn to trust the breath. Breath is movement, breath is action, breath is compassion, breath is life. We in essence are the breath, and everything in the universe breathes. It’s important to pay attention to your breath daily. Notice if you are holding it in, or forgetting to inhale. Are your exhales shallow? The breath is what will help us get through the upheaval. As it moves, so do we. Every try to run a marathon holding your breath? It’s not possible.
Showing up to the experiences is also a tough thing for a lot of us to do. I know there are times I would much rather watch a delicious movie on netflix, but avoiding things in our life do not make them go away, it only gives them momentary space, and at times this actually waters things weeds we might not want in our garden. Showing up is also defined as taking responsibility, accountability, and acceptance of what is right in front of us. Showing up is also loving those sometimes broken pieces, the struggle, and the upheaval itself. Yes, love your upheaval. Love it so fully and unconditionally that it becomes something that aligns you instead of something that binds you.
Love and chaos. Both beautiful.
Breathe, trust yourself unconditionally, and show up.
