These monthly updates are here to provide the reader with clarity to what’s going on energetically for us on the planet as a whole. We are each changing rapidly at this time, and so too is the world.
The Ascension ~ August 2012
It’s such an honor to reconnect with you once again and catch up on all the energetic shifts happening at this time. Between the M class/ X class solar storms, Mercury in retrograde, influential planetary alignments, powerful new moon and the rapid awakening of global consciousness, things are moving and shaking big time both in our personal lives and on the planet. These experiences may not necessarily look or feel how we imagined them to be, but nevertheless we are most definitely moving forward at warp speed right now. When energies start to pick up momentum, everything in our lives becomes amplified many fold. What we experience depends solely on where we have been placing our focus and attention.
If I were to sum up into one word how the energies have been these past several weeks, the word intense comes to mind, however even that is still putting it mildly. We are getting the opportunity to see many extremes at this time both in our personal lives and on the global stage. On a personal level, the highs may seem higher than ever one minute, and then all of a sudden we get triggered and spiral into lows we thought we had overcome long ago. The same thing is happening on the global stage as well. The thing about intensity is that it’s a precursor for great transformation to happen soon after.
What is being asked of us right now is simply to become observers. When we are able to step out of a reactive space that may be triggered by our surroundings and move more into being an observer, we begin to see every experience as just feedback letting us know what we either do or do not resonate with. Getting into observer mode immediately lessens the charge behind whatever it is that may be causing our angst. From this space, when we do encounter extremes in our surroundings, it becomes much easier to remain centered and unbothered by it all. As observers, we empower ourselves through all situations (even the ones we don’t resonate with) to fine tune our knowing of what we do actually want to create more of. So extreme situations no longer become as extreme when we are observers, because we are no longer allowing ourselves to get caught up in them.
A quick little process that really supports us in becoming observers rather than reactors is to simply get present with each of our 5 senses without putting value in what we perceive to be good or bad. We can begin by looking around us and taking in all the colors, shapes, and sizes. Then, we can get present with the sounds we hear around us. Next, we can touch the textures around us with our hands. After that, we can focus on what fragrances may be surrounding us. And finally what are we tasting in that moment? This simple process instantly helps us move out of the analytical mind and into the present moment where we are able to connect with the observer aspect of ourselves.
