So here we are, fast approaching the transition of 2013 into 2014. And what a year of letting go, prioritising, learning, refining, and opportunity...at such a quick pace...
As though being squeezed through an oscillating birth canal of 3rd, 4th and 5th dimensions...we have all been
participants (some unaware) of our earth launching into a quickening consciousness ,a faster/quicker/cleaner vibration. As my good friend Will outlined in his latest newsletter "Many are also saying that they don’t seem in their bodies and feel light headed or even unwell, tight joints, sore bodies, headaches, depression etc and a sense of not being able to concentrate."
Yes, some have participated in good stead, others in displays of compression, trauma and disarray. This year has armed us with avenues to eliminate outmoded ways of thought and living... to help us untangle ourselves somewhat, face fears and limitations, and move through emotions which surround it, into self & prioritisation. There’s not been extra time to process for everyone else this year. Only so much you can do. Hard to keep your head above water yourself...
Congrats! In some way this year, big or small, you radically changed! For the majority, may we celebrate that we are still standing amidst what ultimately has been a possibly challenging yet positive mass development year!
If it's so positive, why title the last blog of the year as grief?
Because I have seen so many people wondering what is wrong with them this year? What's going on in this world? When will it ease?... all these body symptoms and unaccounted for emotions and hurdles. The answers lie in the constructs of travelling
through grief - grief for a transition of self, as the self steps into deeper ownership of, or as it re-positions itself.
...Grief for a leader, grief for an ideal, for humanity, a situation, a person, a gentler earth or environment, a death of long held beliefs and patterns, death of animals, death of relationships/ jobs/ abundance... death/change/transit has been in abundance! Grief is as natural as death is. Change is interchangeable with the concept of death. It could have felt bad or good. Regardless, it would have been tough, or demanding, with little to no down-time.
Symptoms of grief are not always obvious to people, and although there are 5 main stages of grief that have been identified: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance (http://grief.com/the-five-stages-of-grief/), these stages are non-linear, and certain stages can be re-visited more than once by an individual. More often than not, you judge yourself for being in grief, which only serves to anchor you to it.
Often there is a cycle of grief that is sometimes not recognised within times of change, and thus not accommodated because
of. Greif needs time and space to process, and this has been such a rapid year that many have not found that time to calibrate.... to fully grieve....move through it.
Many souls have transited from the physical this last year, including our beloved Nelson Mandela (personally, my last remaining grandparent). These physical transits birth infinity. I know that when a close friend and colleague of mine says she held a dream to have Nelson sit at her table for dinner (along with Dalai Lama and Johnny Depp) as ultimate dinner guests, I say now Nelson can be at all our tables. Let him feed our souls, as our regular dinner guest, with his vision of freedom and equality and hand us the task of holding the vision flame as he once did.
Souls now return to the eternal unlimited source, and thus enhance our humanitarian evolution even more prevalently than possible on earth... but even armed with our knowledge or faith based beliefs, we on earth here still mass process the
physical departure. It is no co-incidence the few days post Nelsons passing, that we all feel so tired and drained. Mass consciousness grieves!
Keep in mind that, sure Luke Skywalker in Star Wars witnessed truth in eternal being-ness with the passing of OBE-Wan Kenobi, still even the firmest faith and the strongest minds can be rattled by the process of grief. We are emotional human beings, and when especially grief is planetary, with humanity’s current varied forms of understanding and acceptance of death, we will be affected (aware or otherwise).
So to take heart, Grief itself is non-comparative as we ALL journey it, and usually constantly in differing ways and levels of. We can learn to embrace grief as being a natural part of adjustment in Death/change (good or bad & in time), and in doing so, assist movement through it.
Grief can be a fantastic re-positioner. Yes, it can be awkward, draining and hurtful but it also always clears the way for
forward motion and positive evolution/outcome.
So acknowledge grief, it is only a process, and one that will change naturally in due course.
Focus on Joy and Love, and know there is nothing wrong!
You are in grief, that’s ok.
We will have breakthroughs not breakdowns. Transitions not death/loss. Perceptions and choices towards love over fear.
There is eternal goodness in grief, look for it, appreciate it and be onwards bound.
ENJOY your Chrissy and 2014 New Year transitions, may they allow you time to ease up and process a big year prior! xoJK
