We have another celestial event coming this Saturday, April 4, 2015 to give us another boost, keep us on our toes and keep us moving forward. This full moon will be enhanced with a total lunar eclipse early Saturday 4/4 morning creating what is known as a Blood Moon. The energy and timing of this event is due to be quite powerful as it takes place during a very sacred time between Passover on 4/3 and Easter on 4/5. It is a continuation of the activation, integration and emergence of the Christ body/consciousness in each of us and an opportunity to set our thoughts into action, so we are encouraged to keep our thoughts, words and intentions at the highest possible level.
Around the middle of February, we started entering a sacred time of going even deeper into the Self for cleaning, clearing and evaluation. Add to that the Spring equinox/new moon/solar eclipse and solar flare/CME activity that took place in March and we have quite the cocktail for making choices to let go of what dis-empowers us to help us step into our True Selves. Yes, those triggers and irritations you have been feeling and experiencing are to help you let go of the “gunk”.
For the past few years, many of us became accustomed to having a foot in the old world and one in the new world. With the old word being no more, it’s up to us to go forward into the new, only we have been lingering in an in-between state/holding pattern waiting for the energy to give us the freedom to move forward once again. I have been hearing from so many people that they are feeling the anticipation and readiness for movement, however, they are also feeling “stuck” as they wait for the energy to open up and movement to resume. I have come to know this experience (especially this time of year) to resemble the death/rebirth process in so many ways.
When we choose to enter deep in ourselves and clear out the old, we go through a form of death (dying to our old selves, our old ways…ie. Winter). It takes time to detach, clear, seed, incubate, and prepare us for our re-birth, the emergence into our new Self and it can feel quite uncomfortable on every level (physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually) as we go through this process. We can feel agitated, anxious, melancholy, separated, confused, angry, sad, and quite empty as we “clean house” in preparation for our redecoration. This happens for us repeatedly in our lives as we let go of who we used to be and become who we ARE. Think about it. Remember what it was like when you knew you changed, but the world around you continued to see you as you “used” to be? Giving yourself permission to shed the old you and rise up as the YOU you know you ARE (ie. Spring) is quite liberating for everyone…so keep growing and taking those steps forward.
A few years ago I had a funny thought to describe this process. Many times when I feel energy ready to move and change coming, I clean to move my body and (cleanse) the energy around me. For me, cleaning is a gentle and easy way to keep the energy moving forward and “get out of the way” of my mind and old patterns because it requires little thought or concentration to sweep, wash dishes, fold laundry, etc. Thoughts and feelings have space to come up and move through for quick and brief acknowledgement and then it’s on to the next. One day, as I was in one of these “therapeutic” cleaning modes, I thought about the symbolism of this particular event and the thoughts came to me as,
“Home is where the heart is.
Jesus is Love.
We are asked to invite Jesus (Love) into our hearts.
Clean your Home (heart),
Jesus (Love) is coming!”
I smiled and giggled. I still smile often as I remember this when I am cleaning and know something old is moving out of my heart to make room for Love…I enjoy cleaning much more now. *If you have more cleaning to do, the energy is supporting us right now…so get to that Spring cleaning!
Much of this affects the physical body more than ever as it is preparing to “host” Spirit in physical form now. We are being cleaned out at the cellular level to support this integration, so many of you may be experiencing more aches, pains, illness, and fatigue more than usual as the “old” is urged out of you. Take care to feed, nourish, Love and move your body to support and encourage a more gentle experience.
As you let go of the old you and emerge into your true Self, you will most likely find that what used to bring you Joy and fill you with Love doesn’t feel quite as pleasing or fulfilling anymore. This is you tapping into your more authentic passions and purpose…your Love. We are creating new experiences to bring that Love forward and share with the world. If it seems unimaginable and unclear “how” just yet, let that be OK for the moment…we are creating and manifesting at warp speed and it will take time to adjust. Have faith and trust it will come…and pay attention to what comes and take action when appropriate, you’ll know!
The choice is clear; letting go, emerging and flying high takes courage.
To those of you that have been in this process for some time, thank you for saying, “Yes!”
To those of you in the midst of this process, keep going.
To those of you just beginning, have faith, this can be a brief and gentle process.
