The world we have trusted no longer exist. So what do we do now? Are we seeing this play out in our own world? Is our personal world reflecting the energy that is occurring in the collective? Yesterday I had to put to rest my sweet and valued 16 year old cat . This was very painful and it is part of a trend that has been happening for quite some time now. It feels like the clearing that is happening with the greater consciousness is playing out on some level in my own personal world. We are making room for the new life and world that is coming. In the past year there has been a lot of clearing of the old in my own personal world just as we are clearing away much as a collective. The old patriarchal system is dying and much is being revealed so that it can be cleared and healed. That which no longer serves, has to be released. So how does this apply to Scampers? Scampers leaving, provided room for Luna, our rescued kitty to claim her own space. Endings mean new beginnings. I love Scampers and forever will, but as Buddha will say all things are always changing and it is inevitable. In the loss of my Scamps, there is now space for Luna. So what are we saying to you? As the old falls away, the new is born. Think of the figure 8, the infinity symbol. It is not always easy to deal with the loss of the old ways, but do not close yourself off to the possibilities of the new beginnings. Just as Kathleen grieves for the loss of her cat, she will also see Luna’s expansion. What was old holds value. Just because it’s time is passing does not mean it is forgotten and useless. Think of it as building blocks. The old paves way for the new. We are all in a time of transition. It is not always easy to navigate this transition. Do not let others tell you how you must move forward or tell you when you must move on. Find your own heart and always be true to who you are. Do not judge yourself by others. Trust your own connection. We are not all the same! So what is the gift in Scamper’s leaving, it is the expansion of Luna, a new sense of freedom for her. See that in a bigger picture. What we may see appears to be the destruction of our world, in actuality , it is the beginning of the expansion of our world. It is the beginning of our expansion as individuals. We are changing!
Trump is the end result of the collective karma and shadow of the United States. He is a symptom of the rot and corruption and the unsustainability of the current system of the US. Just as we as individuals need to look at our own dark side and be accountable, so do we as a collective. Just as we as individuals generate Karma, so do we as a collective. So how do we do this as a collective at a time when so many do not want to know or acknowledge this aspect of our culture. Who wants to acknowledge the slaughter of millions of indigenous people to take their land or to look at the abduction and enslavement of the African people? Who wants to look at the horrors that we as a group have manifested on the people of the Middle East and hatred of muslims so prevalent in our country. Who wants to look at the horrors that are being perpetrated on innocent children who are in concentration camps? Who is willing to do even the smallest of things to help with climate change? If we as individuals cannot evolve and find enlightenment until we have dealt with these issues on a personal level, then how do we do that as a collective.
Drew two cards:
Six of Fire from the Good Tarot. I generously model my transformation so that others might be inspired. I put my light atop a hill so it can shine forth, helping others to find their way. I remain aware of shadows and people who have trouble basking in the warm light of higher awareness. I bless them, but do I not dim my own beacon. It's a time to renew my trust that I am contributing to the highest good of all in my own unique way.
Five of Water Releasing grief, allowing sadness to rise and fall. Forgiveness, the ebb and flow of emotions. Fearless inventory leads to liberation.
Personal note I always enjoy reading these written channeled messages after I type them. After reading this, I can see the wisdom in the two cards that were drawn. It is very unusual that I am compelled to draw cards so I found this very interesting.
I can not recall who said this: “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
