For all those struggling, I send my love, prayers and best wishes. If there is anything I can do to be of service, PLEASE reach out to me. I believe Spirit has us home for higher reasons. My musings include several links to help you stay spiritually grounded, and to move forward in productive and healthy ways. We were made for these times! A Call for Stillness (Sorry this is a long one but under the circumstances, I think it's worth the read.) April is a very fertile month full of opportunities even if they are not yet apparent. There is an energy that wants to manifest outwardly even if it is just in new ideas and seeding a creative foundation for the future. Focusing on creating the new instead of losing the old keeps us proactive and positive. It is not always easy. It’s okay to “not get it” yet. This is an in-between space to sit quietly and embrace the vulnerability of not knowing the answer, the path, the solution, or the ending. When a computer runs out of space and memory, it is time to shut it down, clean it up, get rid of the old files that are cluttering up the system, and add an internal upgrade. When it is rebooted, you have many more options, a learning curve for the new applications, and the kinks often need to be worked out. If our planet is like a computer, it has now been shut down. A virus has corrupted our files and we are in the process of reworking everything. When it reboots, it will be a different operating system that will have to take some getting used to. When the computer is down, one has to use creative and alternative methods to complete tasks and communicate with others. This is a simple analogy of the bigger picture of where we are. Brace yourself for energetic battle. The great forces of Nature have been activated to help set right the World. Our history is one driven by fear, ego, dominion and control over the feminine, the animals, and the planet. This is a virus of greed and narcissism. This is not about dismantling an old structure and then rebuilding something from old materials. This is about the old structures dissolving completely and new forms emerging from deep within. The world is in the process of great change and transformation that has been predicted by many indigenous peoples, channels and prophesies including Revelations in the bible. Many spiritual and indigenous healers and teachers are sharing similar messages that we could not keep going the way we were going. Mystic Mama says 2020 is a Warrior year, a time to clean up our messes – personally and globally. Humanity is going through a detox process.
This is a giant WAKE UP call to return to a more sustainable, community-oriented, earth-honoring, heart-centered way of life. This pandemic is awakening multi-millions to the reality of our interconnectedness. The virus doesn’t discriminate race, nationality, religion, political beliefs or financial status. It is fascinating to observe the environment leading the way in this transformational time. Less noise, less traffic...seems to create space for nature and spirit energy. The environment is reflecting back to us what we are doing right. Pollution is disappearing, waterways clearing, and the animals are happy. As nature is able to flourish, so can we. It is the gratitude for how nature supports and nourishes us that will assist our transformation. Native peoples across cultures have known this well, and this primal wisdom lives in our bones, it is the invisible thread that can help us restore balance within our relationships and with our Mother planet Earth. We are practicing physical distancing, not social distancing. Technology is allowing us to embrace one another through virtual video. We are, as a global community, needing to clear and heal the feminine creative source, balance the destructive side of our nature, and open ourselves up to the magic and power within. The demand for equal rights and equal equity is upon us. To honor and look after all species, to end animal cruelty and exploitation is necessary. To care and nurture everyone regardless of race, color, religion, political affiliation, sexual orientation, and so on. It’s long past due to honor the feminine, honor and acknowledge beauty, and include more art, music, laughter, and humor into our lives. Increasing our kindness, compassion and cooperation (feminine qualities) will soon be realized as highly intelligent, not just spiritual disciplines. These changes are being forced on us now. Mother has spoken. In order to change the old habit imprints, we must step into the power of our heart. Very few feel unconditional love for themselves; let alone others. It’s the deeper connection with our own heart and with the hearts of others that can help us through these collective changes. The physical body is also feeling the impact of this upgrade as well as we adjust to new patterns of energy. Science has proven that we are more than just our physical body. We are looking to “Ctrl-Alt-Del” all the energetic garbage and stagnant energy in our bodies. Even those who are not being affected by an identifiable illness are feeling symptoms of fatigue, aches & pains, mild headaches & brain fog, fluctuations in heat, cold & energy levels, digestive issues & nausea, and a general sense of physical discomfort. I have personally had a mild headache for the past several months and I am not prone to them. This is a time were our bodies require plenty of water, fresh air and exercise. We cannot move energy through the body simply by meditation. I highly recommend the practice of Yoga, Qi Gong, living room dance parties, long walks, and anything else that moves your body.
This is also a month where personally we look at what is essential to us. It is curious that many areas have closed “non-essential” businesses. It gives us an opportunity to consider what is truly essential for us personally to be in our authentic joy, creativity and purpose. This will be different for each person. No one is going back to “business as usual.” We need to be inspired about what COULD BE instead of what is no longer. Who are we going to be on the other side of the COVID-19 crisis? Who are YOU going to be when this is over? Much innovation can come out of this time. We need to focus on possibilities and potential. The proverbial "What if?" This pause also gives us an opportunity to discard the relationships that are complete, non-essential and unnecessary. It gives us an opportunity to reach out to those that perhaps we have neglected due to time or distance constraints. This may be a good time to limit endless non-essential chatter on social media and move instead to one on one conversations and sharing that will actually feed and inspire you. It is good to be informed but not useful to engage in the drama of collective negative reaction. The virus is rapidly spreading but there is something much worse propagating a lot faster – fear. Fear of COVID-19 is deadlier than the virus itself. (It’s what’s causing people to buy way too much toilet paper.) Fear weakens the body and wreaks your immune system. This will also undermine your creativity and inspiration. Practice the act of shifting your focus to things you are grateful for. Here are 101+ Morning Affirmations for stress relief, confidence, inner strength, happiness, hope, self-love, and soul connection. And renowned Energy Medicine teachers Donna Eden and David Feinstein share this kid-friendly 4-minute video on relieving stress and anxiety. With that said, a cluttered environment is never supportive for clean, clear, and new creative ideas. One of the most calming things we can do is to Get Organized. Some of you may have to do some cleaning and clearing first. It is Spring after all! (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere). This is a great time to clean your own personal environment to reflect the process of the greater environment. Not just cleaning your space but also keeping yourself energetically clean through smudging or other disciplines. If you’re feeling anxious, fearful, stressed, overwhelmed by negative people and media, you might need a good cleansing of your energetic field. Contemplation, meditation, spiritual practices and simply being, with the intention of opening yourself up to your own authentic truth, creativity and medicine is always worthy and a good place to start. There is an abundant light that is here, waiting for those who are ready for this new paradigm, new age, new reality. Enjoy this beautiful version of the Om Mani Padme Hum mantra from the Tibetan tradition for returning to a more calm, peaceful and empowered state.
"Perhaps we are on the verge of a great evolutionary jump. Another way to say it is we are going through an initiation, after all, isn’t an initiation a rite of passage from one phase to another? Perhaps the earth is assisting us in lifting the veil, initiating us to a quickening in energy, and enabling us to see our true nature. Maybe when we see, remember, and awaken to who we truly are, human beings can finally move as a collective consciousness from a state of surviving to a state of thriving" ~ Joe Dispenza, PhD
I hope this message helps support you on your path. You'd be surprised who's watching your journey and being inspired by it. Don't quit. We are all in this together. Have a great-FULL and grateful day! Namaste, ~ Karen
