There is a big free-floating feeling in the air these days. The more our consciousness becomes centred in our hearts as opposed to our minds, the more an ‘unplugging’ of sorts takes place. It is an unplugging of our former paradigm, including an unplugging of old beliefs that held our reality and identity together. More and more our awareness and focus is being brought into NOW, and so you may be finding it really difficult, detached even, to think about the past or future in the same way you used to. Recalling memories might feel strange, and planning for the future might feel like you are grasping at clouds that keep changing every moment.
This consciousness shift – from the mind to the heart – is a naturally occurring process at this point in our evolution. It is a process we can either go along with without even realising, actively participate in and open to, resist, fear, avoid or actively push against.
The unplugging process is ultimately a positive, empowering and liberating one but it can feel very ungrounding because we are so used to being centred in a much denser reality. Our new reality is much more fluid, and while there is a huge amount of freedom in that, it can also feel very disconcerting to not be entirely sure of who you are anymore, where you are headed, or what you are wanting. It can also bring up feelings of apathy or depression as there’s this sense of not really wanting to do anything, or feeling like what’s the point of it all?
Those feelings tend to come up when a lot is being unplugged at once (within your energy field, including physical reality), and we can feel like we are in limbo or in the void of the unknown. Yet what this is doing is creating space for our new to come online, to be activated, to enter us, to be embodied, to awaken. And when the space is fully clear, and the old has been released, that’s when we get these surges of energy and inspiration, sudden flashes of thought and feelings of ‘ooh I wouldn’t mind doing xyz’ or ‘hmmm I’m really feeling to now eat this way, or I’m really wanting to spend more time doing abc, or I really have to stop doing such and such, it’s beyond time.’
This process goes in waves….unplugging unplugging, feeling blagh, feeling empty…..space is created, old is released, new comes online….ooh feeling joy, feeling great, feeling inspired…..then more unplugging….oh crap, I feel blagh again! Ride the wave.
Unplugging from an old aspect of you isn’t easy. It has been your identity for a long time. So a grieving might take place. And you might resist, because certain old aspects of you may be connected to your income, or important relationships, that would need to be let go of if you are to fully let that old aspect go. Your soul will tell you, ‘You will be okay” but it can take a while to fully jump because that emotional and physical survival part of you is saying “What are you doing?? What is going to happen to us?”
For myself I have been getting taps on the shoulder for some time to give my crown chakra a rest, particularly in relation to my one-on-one Soul Sessions. Not just for my own health and growth, but also for the growth and potential of my clients. Rather than bring the info through in that way, I am being called to place greater attention on things like my courses and other ideas I have, that help people to bring their own information through and embody the new energies in our everyday lives and world.
I listened to these nudges and cut down on clients a few years ago after Jax was born, sticking to a few a week. However leading up to this trip I got very firm instructions from my Soul – it is time to stop the Sessions now. Is this forever? I’m not sure, but this time definitely feels different to the ordinary breaks from them I’ve had in the past.
Intuitively I knew that the second I let go, the more space, time and inspiration I would have for whatever new passions and directions awaited me, yet it was still emotionally hard because it’s something that comes naturally and easily to me, and helps people, and helps toward the family income. And here I am on a long trip letting go of it! But I can hardly encourage people to jump off the cliff and let go of jobs, and not do so myself when guided to do so!
So as a part of all this, energy messages have also been few and far between. I’m just going with the flow with that. When I get the wooshka rush of one, it will be here as this one is today. It is one of the hugest gifts you can give yourself to allow yourself to step back from your life for a moment, to clear the slate, and ask: okay, from this blank slate, what do I now want to add? What from the old do I want to keep? And what new things want to come in?
You don’t have to go on a long trip to do that although it definitely helps to get away from your usual environment even for a weekend, or a week away if you can. I’ve also done a life stocktake many times at home with a pen and a journal, asking myself: what is it time to let go of? What new things do I want to do/move toward? With current energies in mind, this isn’t so much a ‘planning the future’ exercise, more so it is about connecting with yourself, taking time to listen to your Soul and to hear your heart.
How are you all going?
