We are all feeling it ~ that something new, something different in ways that can’t be explained… something vulnerable, innocent somehow, yet so strong in place and purpose; something pushing through from the deep.
Welcome to March! In Asheville, we are seeing the first signs of Spring; green shoots peeking out from Winter’s soil, buds adorning tree tops and mountain bluebirds joyfully speckling the landscape with otherworldly shades of blue and rust. If we are really present to the gift of this now ~ we feel the powerful synchronization of outer and inner worlds; an invitation to begin new life.
I AM in the final days of preparing for the great adventure that is New Zealand. My mind is so happy with anticipation and free to contemplate what profound and transformative gifts await me with this YES I Am stepping into. But my body went into a tailspin about a week ago ~ spin being the operative word, as my whole left side from the hip down, is rotating UP, forward, counterclockwise in ways my amazing team of chiropractor, rolfer and acupuncturist have found both interesting and puzzling. They know me and my body, this support team. I AM keen on maintenance body work, so when something feels off or tweaked or I roll my foot on a rock trail-running, I go in for a session with one of them and boom, my body springs quickly back into place. But, not so, this unique and persistent energy dynamic.
I have always processed things through my body more so than my emotions. I feel a respect and gratitude for the fierce, committed companion my body has been for my spirit, my soul. So, I have spent time tuning into this “left side spiral” expressing through my body vehicle, listening to its voice, feeling into the energy (discomfort) for the message, what is it that I need to “get” at this all important, beautiful, expansive time of being human on a dynamically changing planet? And answer it has done; in mystical, magical, meaningful ways to my expansion and desires at this time. I feel the deeper marrying of the mind to the body, DeAnne aspect to the innate wisdom of body temple; Divine Merge deepening through many facets and profound dynamics as the Multidimensional Self comes into full expression of being.
I share this personal odyssey with you because it SO VERY MUCH reflects the movement from February into March. We can see and feel and acknowledge new movement in our lives, new possibilities, new opportunities and connections, plans made that resonate strongly with a new direction for our lives. And yet, there is resistance, pieces that don’t make sense: “why is my body protesting (pain) at such an incredible (New Zealand) moment in my life?” March launches with both and invitation to wide open possibilities and equally so, what may appear as blocks or resistance to what is clearly beginning to manifest for you. Reminds me of the beautiful daffodil above, that has come out in all its glory ~ saying YES to Spring, when another harsh blast of Winter is still possible.
But, just like that daffodil, we must rise to this moment, it is inevitable that we will push through to new life, new existence. There may be plenty of unknowns, areas that are unclear, questions unanswered and a certain lack of clarity that may be producing anxiety, worry or fear. This abrupt and disarming discomfort in my body (one day I could not even get dressed!) has resulted in unplanned expense in trying to take care of and tend to the temporary distress. And so we observe this fluid movement from far reaching expansive places where the mind cannot muddy the clear waters, to awareness of limited thought that clings to a very old way of life. We cannot underestimate the full breadth and depth of this new energy on the recessed, deeply guarded areas of the subconscious mind. Whether it is conscious or not, part of you is experiencing this new energy as certain death! Change has been activated on a core level in our world and in your being. There is a collective anxiety, an apprehension about what is to come that has been triggered by all encompassing change.
The wise and most powerful way to respond to this “what’s next” uncertainty that is inevitable in times of great change, is to keep moving forward. There is a momentum present that is carrying us as we move into a higher octave, a higher vibration, new level of being where the windows are vast and clear. Compassion is an essential tool at this level of the game. The subconscious instincts of survival will bring up every fear when the light of a new world shines so brightly. Think of the seed of the above daffodil, long encased in a dark chamber of security, a different kind of nourishment. But the intelligence in that organism knew when it was time to push forward, move to higher ground, live in the fullness of the light. There is no stopping the evolutionary process; for a tiny seed or an ascending humanity.
As I write these words, a giant red tail hawk circles in the sky above me. At first I thought it was a turkey vulture, its wingspan was that magnificent. But as it flew between me and the sun, the rays of light illuminating its brilliant red feathers, I knew it wanted to be seen as a participant in this sharing of higher perspective.
Hawks can soar and fly high at the same time. They have the power to provide support in gaining higher level perspective.They appear to remind us of the power of FOCUS and that whatever detail you are working with or challenged by – there is a HIGHER PERSPECTIVE to be gained.
Take care this month to keep your focus on what is moving, on what feels like LIFE and freedom, the opportunity to merge with new beings and opportunity and experience. All around our world we see compelling evidence of what is old and dying off, enmired in the negative polarity of a changing reality. No matter what your current circumstances, you have the power to see clearly and your connection to the Light realms is strong. Remember that, own that, allow that. What we know for sure is that we are all going somewhere, creating something new and when we have all the parts together in our heart, the center of our being, we will know when to take the lead, where and how.
I feel an intelligence coming on line within me. I sense it in small things I am doing, in my thoughts and perspectives on just about everything. Something greater than my Will is making choices in my life now and there is peace around that, even as my lower back twinges in spasm. “I AM Ok, I AM Ok, I AM Ok.” Can you repeat this mantra to your self in and between the no’s and anxiety, the worry and fear? I will tell you a great secret; the Light shines brightly in the unknown. The Shining Ones say that the biggest secret hidden from this humanity is “the extent of your own power, your sovereignty.” And that together, our power is phenomenal.
Stay with the momentum! If an opportunity presents itself that is NEW to you, a chance to travel or be in community with other powerful, woke beings; if a door closes unexpectedly or perceptions around health and abundance get challenged ~ lean further into the unknown and follow where the energy is pointing. It is not possible to fail or be disappointed when you trust exactly what is unfolding in your life. Trust it, Bless it, Allow it ~ and remind yourself often, “I AM Ok!” We are all ready for the next step and we are taking it together: you, me, the collective body, the planet, the Cosmos and a very great Love. Declare it so!
