There are two ways that change occurs in our lives. We either deliberately choose change, or change happens to us. Often the changes that happen “to us” are the most challenging to take responsibility for. Why would I make that happen? I remember learning in undergrad psychology how happy people tend to blame bad things that happen on something, or someone, outside themselves and take responsibility for good things that happen. It messed with my head, because I tended toward doing the opposite. Today, I am empowered by taking responsibility for all my experiences, for each one offers growth, adventure and transformation.
Right now reality is crumbling, both personally in your own house and collectively in our home called Earth. You might be running around your house frantically trying to fix every crack, the leaky plumbing, or the broken window, only to find more and more of your house is falling apart. Maybe you’re glued to your television or phone, holding an umbrella over your head as you try to ignore the rain coming through your leaky roof. Or, maybe it’s the electricians fault you’re having trouble with your appliance and lighting, or you find your peace of mind is shattered by your annoying neighbor’s barking dog. Being the caring person you are, maybe you’re busy trying to put out every fire you see as the smoke rises from more and more of your neighbor’s homes.
We are all having our unique breakdowns, and each one is necessary on our quest to awaken to the truth of who we are and to a shift that is happening, with or without us. Are you deliberately choosing to change or is change happening to you? The perspective you choose to take is what influences the quality of your life at this moment. You are awakening from the illusion that you are a powerless, unworthy, broken victim who needs to please and be approved of by some outside authority figure, being punished for your past or present bad deeds, and tossed around by other people’s actions. You a powerful creator who chose to be here at this amazing time on the planet and set up your life’s experiences for your and the world’s highest and greatest evolution.
Lately I’m feeling more and more like an observer of my life’s experiences, thoughts and actions. I watch myself going through the motions, catching myself over and over doing, thinking and acting in ways that I find just don’t work anymore. It’s not that I’m wrong or bad, just that I’m outdated and need to update my software. I’m noticing this in most every area of my life, and it’s quite a trip.
I, like you, was programmed about what reality is and how to be and act in the world so that I am successful, look good, and gain the approval of others (including “God”). Remember Encyclopedia Britannica? We had a set when I grew up. Well, I’ve got a house filled to the brim with encyclopedias filled with rules about how reality is. With my keen intellect, educational background, and desire to be self-aware, I can dissect any situation, second guessing my actions, thoughts or desires as subconscious habits or beliefs, addictions, escapism, laziness, insecurity, fear, blocks, selfishness, self-sabotoge, wishful thinking, ego, trauma, and the list goes on. I’m sure your house is full too!
For me, I am amid a healing crisis in beliefs and automatic ways of operating in the world. It shows up as NOT FEELING GOOD, meaning heightened anxiety, worry or stress, when I think about my present and future in the normal, responsible and scientifically sound ways I’ve been taught to operate around relationships, business, home, work, money, eating and more. What great news! I am releasing the old and opening to the new and unknown more deeply than ever before.
What is a healing crisis? This is most well known around our health and bodies. For example, when you do a detox of any sort for the body, you’ll often have symptoms such as nausea or other digestive upset, fever, aches and pains, or a bad headache. Sometimes the very symptoms you are tying to alleviate flare up even stronger during a detox. At this point you have a choice: either you can decide that there is something wrong with what you’re doing and go back to your “normal” way of eating and what you ingest into your body, or you can know that the symptoms you are experiencing are a sign of your body releasing toxicity.
The world is toxic right now, effecting not just humans, but animals and the earth itself, for the world is in a healing crisis. This is good news! Instead of seeing what is happening as “something wrong” and choosing to go back to doing things and understanding things in the way you did in the past, you can choose to know and trust that any painful or uncomfortable feelings, emotions or experiences are simply a sign that those toxic thoughts, beliefs, relationships, environments, behaviors and emotions are bubbling to the surface, seeming to intensify, as they are being released and cleansed from your being.
In our desperate need to control and understand our reality, it seems it would be easiest to throw in the towel and go back to operating in the world as we’ve understood what worked best in the past. With the birth of a new reality, we are being asked to step into an unknown future. You know the Boy Scouts motto, “Always be prepared.” How do you prepare for an unknown future? Typically, we prepare by basing it on tried and true methods from the past. However, we also know that what much of what we’ve done in the past is not working for our planet or humanity anymore.
The first half of August calls us to trust in our process, know that any discomfort is a result of us deliberately choosing to release toxicity, and to claim a future that is filled with greater love, creativity, joy and peacefulness than we’ve ever experienced. We don’t have to know the “how” or the details, for our future is new, different and unknown.
