I have been reflecting on what a powerful era those of us on earth at this time have chosen to experience. How is it going for you?
Are you feeling triggered? Fearful? Anxious? Are you feeling the density of the predominant current collective experience (or at least of the one projected repeatedly to us by our ubiquitous screens)?
Whatever feelings you are able to acknowledge and embrace within yourself at this time, I commend you. Allowing ourselves to feel what we are feeling not only takes courage, but it is the key to shape shifting our own life and the world around us in a very literal sense. It is only when we deny what we are feeling that we actually close the door on the incoming light which is, in fact, pushing up (and out) those uncomfortable feelings (the density) to make more room for itself.
So why the chaos, from an evolutionary standpoint?
The chaos is a catalyst: We as humans have reached a tipping point in our denial, and we are being lovingly prompted to take the next step in our spiritual unfolding. I am going to go against popular wisdom (as I am compelled to do) and say that it is not primarily by meditating or practicing loving-kindness that we evolve spiritually while in the human body (there is a place for these things, but it is secondary); it is by FEELING.
Whatever particular piece or pieces of the chaos “out there” that may be triggering you right now (and there’s plenty), I suggest that you embrace it as a Beloved. It is an invitation for you to acknowledge what you have not yet allowed yourself to look upon, and therefore release, leaving more room for your higher self to take residence. The chaos and ensuing triggers, are, in fact, a response to YOUR request, conscious or unconscious, for more LIGHT.
