Last week was a tough week. I felt a bit stunned at the end of the week by how many women, and men, had come into my office in a state of utter exhaustion, self-doubt, self-judgment and self-criticism. Honestly, it was hard to sit in the energy. I cancelled my last client of the week and had to go home. I never do that.
What is going on? Is there something in the water, the air, or the food we are eating? Is it the GMO’s, the chemtrails, Facebook, (sorry), or the speed of life these days?
I don’t know. But, I do know this level of self-abuse has to stop. It is slowly killing all of us.
I don’t want to get all woo woo here, but I do believe we are going through some kind of collective detox as the energies on the planet intensify for the shift in consciousness we are all being called to make. I feel it is going on both on a global and individual level. As above, so below.
As this shift is happening, we are being stirred and shaken to face our shadows and the dark areas of our psyche that need to come into the light and heal. From what I have seen, in my own life and the lives of others, this does not feel good— to say the least.
This can feel like death. It is the death of the ego which has been our master for so long. (And look where that has gotten us…)
We are being guided to live and source ourselves from another place. We are being forced to get out of our heads and into our hearts. This new energy coming in is based more in love, compassion, intuition, forgiveness, non-judgment, nurturance, receptivity, equality, sensuality and sacred sexuality.
This energy is being referred to by some as the divine feminine.
I have been tuning into this energy for the past few years in my mediation practice, and in my life, not really knowing what it is. It is now becoming clearer to me what this is and how to use it to heal. I believe it has transformed my own life and I am just beginning to access the vastness of it.
To me, the divine feminine feels like the all-loving, nurturing mother that we all yearn for.
It is a huge energy of love and compassion.
This energy of the divine feminine has taught me to be more peaceful, more present, more kind, loving and accepting of myself and others. I feel more trust in life, less fear, and less alone. l also feel a stronger sense of guidance to fulfill my purpose and stand in my power.
I not only feel guided, but I feel like I am being given a new assignment.
Working with the energy of the divine feminine to help others heal is my new assignment. It feels a bit daunting to say so, but there it is. I am shifting the way I work with clients. The past is no longer very important to me. The power is in the present moment. Fixing problems does not heal. Empathy, love and compassion heal. I am taking this day-by-day as I open to what this means and how it will look.
I will be writing and sharing more about this as I go along, but for now I can give you the first step on how to invite this powerful energy into your life to heal, transform and get more clarity about your life direction and purpose.
Accessing the loving energy of the divine feminine is not difficult and it is available to every single one of us. Simply ask for this energy to be more present in your life. Open your heart to receive it. You will not find it by thinking about it. It comes through the heart, not the head or the mind.
This, in and of itself, is a major healing. Learning to get out of your over-stimulated, and often toxic, mind and drop into your heart is an act of transformation.
When you do this, be aware of how you may begin to perceive yourself, your life and others differently. You may begin to notice your thoughts quieting down, becoming more peaceful and less fearful. Your inner voice may begin to be more gentle, loving and soothing. Ask for the negative thoughts to be lifted and replaced with something more true. Ask for clarity and direction in your life.
Be specific in asking for your wants and needs to be met. You can be very specific. Become more present and listen for the answers. This may take quiet time alone.
When I asked the clients in my office last week, who were in so much distress, to quiet down, drop into the stillness and ask what was wanting to happen next, they all said some version of, “I need a break, some quiet time alone, by myself.”
Their hearts knew exactly what they wanted and needed. Their minds had no idea.
Give yourself this gift of asking for this kind of love, compassion and nurturance. See what wants to emerge when you do. This is where all the answers to your questions lie.
