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
Cycles of being!
Well, over half a year has flown by AGAIN! WOW! In this last month alone I attended a wedding, and a funeral. Witnessed a new born and had my own birthday. Relevance??? Cycles of being! We have witnessed extremes in emotions and cycles of change in this first part of year. We are being not so gently reminded how the tides of life flow in as they do out. Financial compression. Relationship breakdowns & breakthroughs. Health procedures, challenges and revelations. Career changes and life path renewals.
Amidst all this what are we doing? Where is our focus? Are we holding on to some sense of reprieve to come, waiting for the tide to wash you ashore? Or battling the currents? Feeling the strength diminish as the swells of the sea of life continue? Or loving the adventures it brings, discovering new found lands and strengths? A mix?
For many this may be your reminder RIGHT NOW, to surrender, to drift, to find faith in conviction and prayer, strength in faith, to give in to your need of trying to control, of feeling responsible or obligated, or angry, within despair or frustration… Bigger, stronger forces of natural living command it! If you’re sad, be not strong in hiding it, be sad. If you’re lost for direction, be in the void, until it’s time to act. If stressed, let go, submit to the overwhelm so it can release it’s hold, de-focus on the worry, let life hold you in it’s trust. If angry, forgive yourself and any others – tolerate – we are all human! If you’re happy, fantastic, uplift & inspire others!
Perspective: I dare you to write your Eulogy right now! Seem morbid? Hardly… let’s get those fears seen for the illusions they truly are – help place your priorities back into a state of compassionate LOVE. And yes, what do you really wish to take to the grave with you?...
This year is a REFINEMENT year. We can chose to embrace the stripping effects, sometimes that is by just by turning up day by day til the timing is better. But take heart, all is happening for humanities highest and best. Try not to take it or others personally, focus on a light heart. Drama less, esteem more. Nurture you. Remind yourself how good you will feel despite it all. Let go, Let be, Be love. BIG love! xoJK
Happy New year all! My news is I'm opening up a new Wellness center with a valued colleague in Batemans Bay, Southern NSW, shortly ...indeed an inspiring theme for us each and also for the many whom will benefit from it's opening... but what about overall 2013 - what's in store for us all???
Well it’s said that only your mind can liberate it’s circumstances, i.e. that a prisoner can still chose their thoughts, and under that premise, still be free! Did you realize it is through the right brain thinking that this is accomplished? The intuitive and creative, logic by-passed side of the brain… the side we as humans we’ve been encouraged to use less of over many “masculine”(will-power) thought based years… a model now changing for humanity in the “feminine”, or receptive, Age of Aquarius.
Welcome to 2013!!!... An opportunity for almost polar change for some, for radical opportunity to set us more into our intuitive truth… A re-adjustment, year; a year for plenty to be accomplished. Perhaps a year with more needed rest firstly, but ultimately a more flowing working effort than 2012. A year to not just conceptualise, but to EMBRACE, the “me nurtured first” (not “me first” as in look at me, but look for/in me) premise which many have been running from for years with all their giving and avoiding pain or loneliness behaviours.
I have people around me, one is a dearest friend, whom after years of resilience and putting everything, people, family, friends, jobs, ideas (all the purposeful and enjoyable things) before her real body/soul needs, has now created a body of cancerous cells for her to rest and rebuild in. Still I wait for her to simply stop!... to possibly see the urgency her body is instilling in her to PUT HERSELF FIRST! Even though she claims she always does, many a time the observer will see a different story, like when she could have rested her fatigued body in bed, she chose to go to work, when she could have nurtured herself with downtime in nature, she accepts a social engagement, depleting her already depleted energy reserves. So many times…
Yes it is hard to STOP, to be in our own space sometimes, but right now it is vital! Vital to attend to our nurturing, our rest, our inner child cries for space and processing moments - for self love! I too have had my body remind me of this need after an emergency procedure pre Christmas, I grew impatient in my need for body wellness shortly after, only to then chose to see it as “my friend”, my baby rebuilding – to take delight in the baby steps of it’s recovery and to know it will always need my loving attention and support, and that’s ok! In fact, why would I not give it? What in my life is so important, I would not gift my body & my soul, the loving attention and activity it needs to keep it happy and maximised?!
Years of body health challenges in my past have alerted me that self love is simple – listen to the inner child cries – what does it need - create non-taxing space so you can find out, which for me is as simple as a walk along the beach, time away by myself, extra rest – this is my foundation. I build on that with connections external, time with my beautiful partner, wonderful chats with fabulous friends, a meal out on occasion, a purpose in life such as my work. But at the heart of it, if I tire, get moody, feel overwhelmed or emotional, start to self criticize, feel my body affected, then I need to correct my relationship to self – give it more deserved attention, NOW.
So yes, welcome to the promise of a new way of being, or more-so, becoming in 2013. It’s no longer willful mind over matter, it is becoming a harmony of Spirit with mind, which is achieved through “listening” to your own needs – So…what’s your body, heart & soul saying to you today?!
Enjoy the liberation of a year of opening and stretching our intuitive selves! Remember we are all born with a deeply known or sensed life purpose to complement every other organism on earth, should we chose to listen to our base needs required to support this ( judgement free), then we are a step closer to a harmonic earth!
