We are in eclipse season according to astrologers — June 5, 21, and July 4-5. Eclipses represent beginnings and endings. It’s not uncommon to experience turmoil that proceeds times of change, and that is precisely what we are experiencing now on the planet — with Covid-19, George Floyd’s murder, polarizing political beliefs, etc.
As the consciousness level of the planet raises, it brings to the surface conditioned beliefs and subsequent actions that are not unifying and love based, that are not congruent with a high level of consciousness, both individually and collectively. We are in a time where the duality of third-dimensional thinking (black-white, good-bad, right-wrong) is exposing negative, divisive beliefs and patterns so they can be seen and recognized as no longer working and thus in need of transformation.
When Steve Dinan, founder of The Shift Network, recently discussed racism, he stated, “There is simply no way for America or humanity to move forward as a species without transforming racism at the root level. Racist beliefs and policies are directly opposed to seeing each other as sacred beings, worthy of respect. Racist beliefs and policies suppress our collective creativity and our compassion. They reduce our ability, as a species, to learn and grow. They keep us stuck in cycles of oppression that fetter the human spirit.”
These transformative times call for healing — and healing is an inside job that begins with awakening to our multitude of blind spots. For instance, if you’re not a person of color, you may be blind to the deep frustration, challenges and feelings of injustice that come from living as a minority. White privilege is about having the privilege to not think or worry about the color of your skin when you are walking in a park or stopped for a speeding ticket.
Another significant blind spot is our identity beneath our human Earth suit. There will be a time when we all gather as souls and compare what Earth life was like in the various races and ethnicities that we chose to experience. Wouldn’t it be interesting and insightful if we could have this conversation while we are incarnate? We could more easily talk about the blatant and subtle injustices and frustrations without it feeling too raw and personal. We could more easily understand the point of view of others without our own bias filters getting in the way. Unfortunately, much of society is currently unaware of the evidence that we are souls using this body for growth and experiential purposes. But that is also changing. Bit by bit, as a species we are beginning to crack out of the shell of ignorance into awareness of our transcendent nature.
We are also in a time when judging others and their beliefs seems to be coming to a head in these politically polarizing times. It’s important for all human beings to make note that you may want to be careful about whom you judge because, as a soul, you may choose to incarnate into the very group of people that you most judge so you can learn understanding, compassion and balance. The goal is for all of us to learn that lesson while we’re here, so that we can live and operate from our true foundation of unity and love rather than our conditioned fears and beliefs that create divisions. Here is a fascinating case study [https://www.ericjchristopher.com/if-we-knew-who-we-really-were/] that demonstrates this.
I’ve recently read two beautiful pearls of wisdom that speak to the theme that I’m writing about here. They come from Suzanne Giesemann, a former U.S. naval commander and now medium and channel. Each day, she shares a few sentences of love and insights from teachers from across the veil called Sanaya. I would encourage anyone to sign up for these free daily reminders on her website at www.suzannegiesemann.com/daily-way/.
In the first one, Sanaya says,”We ask you to examine your aspen trees. On the surface of one grove you see individual trees of varying sizes and ages, all appearing separate. Underneath what appears to be a surface — the earthly ground — lies a vast web of connections: the root system. What appears to be separate is but a web, connecting what? One living organism. The earthly ground hides this from you, yet the soil through which the living tree passes is vital to its existence.
“For now, focus on the web of roots. Could you see yourselves at an energetic level, you would begin to understand why you experience so many connections and synchronicities with those you know and meet. Beneath the surface you are one organism. Think not in terms of the physical bodies. This is where you go astray. Think in terms of subtle energy — of Life Force — that which animates you. Perhaps you might call it ‘Love,’ and you would be correct. All is One. We will continue to use analogies and lessons of love until you finally know what the heart has never forgotten. You are so very loved.”
“I can appreciate that you feel that way.” Would this not be music to your ears from another if you were to state an opinion? No matter how the other feels, at least you were heard. Can you appreciate that each of the seven billion of you sees things just a bit, if not a great deal, differently? If you can appreciate this, then apply this phrase in your interactions with others and as you read your headlines. It does not mean you agree. It does not mean, “You are right,” and it does not mean, “You are wrong.” It means, “I hear you, and I understand you have a point of view.” How does it feel to be heard? How does it feel to be appreciated? This is an excellent step toward oneness, the field out beyond right and wrong and differing points of view. No right. No wrong. Just experience. You are so very loved.
Natalie Fowler, an author, psychic, medium (also my friend and neighbor), described our recent experience in an interesting way. She recently wrote: “The last few weeks have felt a little like we are living in a snow globe. But maybe our whole world needed to get shook up so we can settle it back together in a new and better way? Maybe it’s true what they say: Life happens for us, not to us.”
As Eckhart Tolle says, we tend to grow the most personally and spiritually on the heels of tragedy. This means individually and as a society. May we all recognize that we are in the midst of tremendous growth opportunity now, depending on how we respond to challenges during this time. Many blessings to all!
