The new energy has come in, and now change is in the works. From an empowered stance, knowing that you are creating your reality and are not a victim, please consider that if you are noticing greater intensity in weather, economic, political and human rights-related events, you've chosen to experience a reality where these things exist, even if they scare the bejeebers out of you—even if you can't believe you possibly chose it! If, however, you are now realizing that you'd like to create your next segment of experience so that it is more in alignment with joy, ease and peace, I would like to offer you a perspective and some strategies for doing so.
Because we've long been living a primarily duality-based reality, the influx of pure Love energy that is displacing the energy in reverse polarity (energy that has been affected by ego-mind) that has built up on Earth is creating something of a churning effect. If we're not fully conscious of this, this churning can distract us from what is really occurring. Just know that as the old patterns are displaced, they may seem magnified in our eyes.
When we look at the old and new energies interacting and appear to be clashing, we can either decide it's all going very wrong, and create our experience to be one of pain, suffering, and horror (thus attracting more of the same), or we can elect to see it as necessary adjustments on the way to recreating the new Love-based predominant reality and emotional climate on the planet, and create an experience of flowing through the changes with ease and joy.
As the shift proceeds, there are a few key strategies for moving through these changes, and the more willing you are to embrace them, the easier and more pleasant your experience will be.
Strategy #1: Manage your focus. (Choose the reality you desire by what you look at.)
You choose the reality state you wish to enter and the type of experience you wish to have by what you focus on. You bring this reality to life by the amount of passion you invest in it. Be careful with your emotional energy, and don't invest it in that which you do not want more of. Make a point of being dispassionate about the events you observe unless you want to create a vibrational match to them, and thus, bring them closer to you and more fully into your own experience.
Look for that which is beautiful to you instead of what is not. Invest your passion in it. Focus on the many desirable aspects of your experience, even if your ego-mind would rather fixate on what it judges as wrong. Suspend judgment and practice calm acceptance. That doesn't mean you have to like what you see, just that you don't move yourself out of alignment by judging it as bad or wrong. The act of judging always puts you in the realm of the fear-based self—the ego—and ego's world is not the kind and gentle place I'm guessing you'd like to be immersed in.
Strategy #2: Follow the Wisest Leader (Stay in Alignment)
Listening to and following the guidance of your Spirit is the best strategy for experiencing Love, joy, ease, and peace always, but it is especially vital when times have more potential to be chaotic than ever. With so many factions trying to exert their influence over what you think, feel, and do, including the sensationalistic, ratings-driven news media which is constantly appealing to your fear-based reptilian brain, it is essential that you tune out everything that might block your Spirit's calm, all-wise voice so you can follow its impeccable guidance.
Your fear-driven ego is going to try and run your program, but ego is not at all capable of keeping you safe and happy. Only your Spirit can do that. Because your Spirit is always in perfect alignment with Source, ignoring your fearful self and surrendering to your Spirit is how to bring the rest of you into alignment as well. This not only gives you access to Divine Wisdom and guidance, and accurate signals for taking appropriate action, it's how you move to the higher vibrational realm where ease and peace prevail.
Strategy #3 Let Go (Relax and Detach)
Have you ever noticed that even when it is patently obvious that you have no physical control over certain events, you clinch up just as if it will somehow help? Let go. Just relax and allow things to happen unless you are truly inspired—guided by your Spirit—to take action. Choose Easy World! If there's anything you can do to make a difference in an active sense, your state of relaxation will assure that you are available to be inspired by your all-knowing Spirit, the aspect of you that you want to take your cues from!
And there's another kind of letting go that will be necessary at times: detachment from the things you feel you simply cannot live without. The more you clutch and cling to things in fear—even to your very physical beingness—the lower your vibrational frequency, and the more painful your experience. The more you invest passion in your fear of losing something, the more likely you will lose it. Become as emotionally neutral as possible about it.
There's one exception to the no-cling rule: cling to your Spirit and know that no matter what happens, you can trust your Spirit completely to provide that which you need.
