Funny how the lines between facts and opinions have become so clouded in the consciousness of many people today. It truly feels as if brains are actually foggy and not able to really focus on what is real, truthful and factual. Consciousness is on hold, if you will, and the awakening we are striving for is stuck in process. The impact of the astronomical alignment, where earth resides in the heavens, is altering brainwaves – literally. And it’s global.
People are outwardly aggressive, angry, mean-spirited, and plain nasty. Ignorance shares center stage with lack of awareness of what is truly going on behind the scenes. Couple this with lack of education concerning historical economic, political, religious, and social patterns, combined with a complete disconnect with our emotional bodies and we have anarchy and war. Currently how many wars are taking place as an outward expression of our lost spiritual awareness?
I’ve personally experienced this unkind behavior and have seen it dished out on multiple others. It is coming from those who are seeking outside themselves for answers and saviors to fix their problems. In reality, once again, it’s the old blame-game.When alternative solutions render their beliefs inaccurate viperous behavior ensues. It’s an interesting account to watch, observe and process. The underlying issue is the lack of personal responsibility added to emotional experiences rendering them hopeless and helpless, combined with lack of parental, and social love. People only attack others when they feel threatened and/or feel inadequate inside. Basically it all comes back to a lack of love. Self love to global love – it’s pandemic. This is where we as a planet are on hold. Century old patterns are front-and-center, threatening and menacing yet comfortable, as individuals know what to expect. The behavior is polarizing, stopping growth and expansion.This attitude is evident throughout the states spreading around the globe as ridicule, dissent, callousness-leaning-to-hatred becomes the norm. Just watch CNN, Fox and regular news media to see the daily stories.
I’ll offer an example. My favorite brother-in-law took the time to write a letter to his local paper referencing an article/letter published about political issues. He stated facts and figures which nicely put an alternate view on the story. It’s his right to do so, however the writer disagreed. Instead of handling the situation with kindness, the writer reacted with avarice and disdain. He tracked down my brother-in-law’s phone number, called, harassed and harangued my sister-in-law for nearly thirty minutes. She is one of the nicest women you will ever meet, a negotiator, a leveler, the calm in a storm. What motivated this man to be so discourteous, so dissident and vile? Where in here did he believe his behavior was warranted? What makes him right? This is the breakdown I am referencing. I can offer countless other tales of this destruction.
So how do we fix this? Where or what is the bridge across the abyss of contempt, intolerance, prejudice, scorn and haughtiness? It seems almost too big a chasm to breach if seen through the old lens of tyranny, control, dominance and closed-mindedness. I believe this is what 2012 is truly about-letting the old inadequacies within ourselves rise to the surface, addressing the sadness, disappointments, remorse and regrets. This is the only path to transformation. And right now this is front and center.
Forgiveness is the first step. Add in thinking and responding from our heart and we might have a chance – a possible departure from the negative – into a new world view. However, it’s this new frequency of heart-centered-thinking which is the scariest. It makes one vulnerable, responsible, ever-vigilant and centered in the present tense. It takes courage to find the strength and connection between our heads and hearts, to feel and be moved to tears, to share openly and honestly, to listen to others with respect and kindness, to follow our intuitive guidance of the highest order within ourselves. This is where the break-down is occurring – this connection within ourselves supporting self-love and nurturing, which in turn emanates outward to global love. It’s as if an electrical switch has been turned off within our subconscious disconnecting the frequencies of truth, goodness and light.
These negative emotions spilling into our consciousness intensely impact our physical bodies and our health. Pride, prejudice and intolerance impact our lungs, shortening our breathing, deleting years from possible longevity. Regrets and remorse add stress to our adrenal glands, creating short, curt and negative reactions, making our bodies even more unbalanced hormonally, our health going down the drain. It is time for a change and that time is now!
The steps are short but strenuous to achieve a new balanced, respectful and loving society. The first and most vital step begins, of course, with us.
1. Stand in the Light of goodness connecting you to your highest ideal.
2. Walk daily in your truth, stand in loving balance within.
3. Speak from your heart center, sharing love with everyone, even and most importantly when you disagree.
4. Remember the bridge, always maintaining your ‘space’ on the side of truth, love, forgiveness and justice.
5. Others will want to cross the chasm when your light helps shine the way.
6. Remember to be humble and tolerant. These emotions have the power to transform even the most negative of outcomes. Gandhi is our best guide, mentor and hero.
This negative breakdown and emotional electrical ‘shorting-out’ is happening on a global level so we as human-kind can recognize ‘what works’ and ‘what doesn’t.’ It is a definite frequency wave of the planetary alignment wild tides. It is our call to reach and strive for kindness in all guises. This is our assignment; it is our mission.
May you find your internal kindness and share the light with all you encounter.
Cosmic sunshine to you.
