The collective energy has been building, and now we feel it even more intensely from the U.S. Presidential election. Feelings like anger, rage, despair, betrayal and depression all are intensifying. There’s a storm afoot, that’s for certain.
Your power does not come from the storm, from any leader, or from anyone outside of you.
It’s easy to get caught up in the drama swirling around you, for you really are quite helpless to any person, thing or event that occurs in your world.
We all want peace, joy, happiness and love. Some may not just be going about the best way to achieve those states of being.
It’s important, imperative for your and the world’s well being, that in these intense times you take time out for yourself. Put away your phone or computer and turn off the television. Within you is the eye of the storm, a calm, centered and peaceful space.
As you honor whatever arises within you, whatever fears, judgments or feelings, you have within you the greatest power of all. You get to choose, moment by moment, what you want to believe, feel, think and do. This includes choosing to know and trust that everything that is arising collectively, politically, and within yourself is purposefully coming up to be released from the collective.
Think of it like cleaning a very dirty pot that has lots of muck stuck to the bottom of it. When you start cleaning, the dirt rises up, turning the soapy water black at first. Do you then give up cleaning the pot? Do you think, “Oh, gosh, I thought things were going well. I got the soap and hot water, the sponge, but now it’s dirtier than ever. Forget it.” No, of course you don’t give up! As all the muck arises from within you and that of the collective consciousness, the dirty yucky stuff, the stuff that’s been there for who knows how many lifetimes or blood and family lines, know and trust that it is coming up to be cleaned out. We don’t clean it with more mucky fear or hate. We clean it with the divine light-infused soap and golden sponge of pure love and compassion.
The world is waiting for YOU to step up and claim your power. No more do we need to give it away to any person or situation that is happening globally. If we do, we get caught up in the drama and find ourselves experiencing that drama on a very personal level in our own lives, be it our health, relationships or otherwise.
Claiming your power is a very action-oriented directive, taken moment by moment throughout your day.
Words, as powerful as they are, only do so much when it comes to truly shifting your state of being. Surely you’ve seen the truth in the written in spoken word since it began to be recorded. Statements like, “Peace begins within,” “Love is the answer,” or “Only love is real,” have been heard time and again.
Only through your personal experience of vibrational states of being like peace, love, hope, joy or trust can you truly embody sage words and be the change you wish to see in the world.
It is who you BE, that then reflects and empowers what you DO and how you experience your world. Let’s be honest: how others experience their world is none of your business, for only they have the power to change their own mind and perspective. Shifting your own state of being is more powerful than any action taken from a place of fear, outrage, frustration or determination to destroy, fix or change what is so terribly wrong.
SIMPLE WAYS TO CLAIM YOUR POWER AND PEACE NOW
Take a walk, a bath (better yet with Epsom salts), stand with a tree or barefoot on the earth, exercise.
Place your hand on your heart and breathe. Stop what you’re doing and simply take 3 breaths with your attention in your heart.
Ask For Help
Call on your higher self, God, your angels or divine guides to assist you in seeing a higher perspective about the situation. Ask for divine will and intelligence to guide your way. Listen. Be open to the answer in any form it takes.
Find something, anything, you can appreciate and are grateful for right this moment, no matter how small. If you can’t find anything, create it! Put on a song that you love, connect with a loved one, give your pet some attention, gaze at the clouds, listen to the birds, or watch an inspiring or funny movie.
Be of Service
Give someone what you are wanting more of. This could be as simple as a smile, holding the door open, or a kind word. Send blessings to all with the simple words of, "May all be blessed with...(love, peace, freedom...)"
This is a short list, for often simple is the most powerful. You’ve heard all these before, because they work!
Be gentle on yourself, beloved. You are not alone, nor are you powerless. You were born to express your unique spark of divinity to this world in chaos. Rise up! Lift up! Allow all the muck to arise, the storm to swirl around you, and let the light of who you really are contribute to a world in great need of YOU.
It's not just you, my beloved. The world is transforming and we're all in this together. You are a master and expert in your unique experiences and contribution to the world. Together we'll navigate through these challenging yet oh so juicy and magical times.
