Deeper In and Further Down

Deeper in and further down the rabbit hole we fall,
Losing our minds and grasping at straws,
We've all but given up.
Lying weightless in the dark too weary to go on,
We turn and hear the whispers, the whispers of our heart

The months drag on with little change and even less certainty of what the next ones bring. As we press on, floating along, trying to keep our heads above water, we are struggling. The weight of the collective struggle bearing down upon our shoulders. 

Our unhealed wounds are popping to the surface as we lack the energy to hold them at bay any longer. Let them come up, greet them at the threshold and usher them through the door. It is time, it is time to heal them all.

Don’t fear the storm brewing up within, I know it is scary sometimes but now really is the time to shed the weight of fear and frustration as we trust fall towards the Universe.

She waits for you to reach her, so she can break the fall. She teams up with us and all our guides and healers to do the work we have artfully avoided for years. While it won’t be easy, it will unfold in ways that help us trust the process. Knowing the whole time that this is the time, we have waited long enough

An Invitiation

You are invited to pull in your resources and your antennae, too. Shut off the news sources for a full day or two. If you are able, go for a walk and listen to music. Feel the cool air on your cheeks and sun on your shoulders. Let your mind wander and play in its murky recesses. Cuddle with a pet, talk to the birds, or go to a wildlife refuge.

This world is in chaos, as is her nature. We are in a cycle of destruction before we can begin growing again. We will grow again. It won’t contract forever, but it will be continuing for a while.

This is the nature of our Universe. Just like Spring follows Winter, growth follows destruction. It is time for all of us to work on our resilience and endurance.

It is time for us to understand what we have control over and what we don’t. As a reminder, you have control over yourself. That is pretty much it.

If you are feeling stressed about what is happening, if you are scared about what the future will bring, or maybe you are angry that people are behaving so ugly, know that you have no control over any of that. And it is okay, you never did have control of those things.

It is Time to Mend Our Souls

What you do have control over is how you are processing everything that is happening. How are you doing? What is dogging you right now and how can you care for yourself?

Have you reached the point where self-care is no longer bringing you relief? Go deeper and look at what you are feeling with the intention of relieving some tension simply by sitting with the emotions for ten minutes.

We are all acting out on our micro-level what is happening all around us on the macro-level. This is the nature of energy patterns. Feel your feelings without fixing them, practice that trust fall with the Universe, she is ready to hold your heart while you flail about for a bit.

Now is not the time to know what we will do next. it is not the time for doing. It is the time for being and feeling. When it is time to do, I promise you will know what to do.

But before we can enter the Brave New World, we need to go deeper in and tend our wounds and shore up our boundaries. There is still a ways for us to travel before we can have confidence in a bright future again. It will be easier going if we mend hearts and heal our souls.
