As I look out my office window this morning to the sunny, breezy day that lays before me I can’t help but feel that somehow the dark, oppressive energy of the rainy and stormy days we’ve been having has possibly passed. Much of the US has had weeks and weeks, and the majority of the summer months, filled with rain and gloomy dark days. I have felt that the weather patterns were mirroring the overall energy that was prevalent in my world around me. I don’t really mind the rain, but when it becomes an everyday thing it starts to wear on me. I read a lot about the ‘energy upgrades’ or ‘ascension process’ that is occurring now, and has been for several years. I don’t know enough about this to say one way or another but I have to admit that there are times that part of me questions that this is really happening. I mean, ascension to a higher vibration along with the Earth raising her vibration sounds amazing and it gets me very excited for the future to think that more and more people are waking up to how the Universe really works and connecting to their spiritual sides. That would be amazing!! But I’m a skeptic by nature, so there is a little niggle inside of me that questions if this is just too good to be true. I hope not!
Still, I can’t deny that energy is shifting, not just for me but for many people. I began my study into the world of spirituality in the 1980s and there weren’t many people into it then. But now it seems a lot more people are awake to energy and vibration and connecting to their spiritual sides. I can even see that the rise in all the violence and political upheaval is a sign of the darkness rising up and acting out in a last ditch effort to hold onto the power it has had for so long. The darkness has been hidden but now it is coming to the surface. Take Bill Cosby, for instance. Yesterday they handed him a prison sentence of 3-10 years in prison for the drugging and rape of at least one woman. Personally, I think he should get life without parole for his serial rape addiction, but I am not a judge or juror on this trial and have no say. Still, Cosby was a man that we all thought was a good guy. A wholesome father figure that pushed pudding commercials. It turns out he was a serial rapist, drugging innocent women so he could rape them and use their bodies for his own sick pleasure. This is a prime example of the darkness rising out of the shadows and being examined so that we can clean up the toxic energy it brings with it.
And in my own personal life I know that many of the darker energies that defined my younger days have gone through a thorough examination in the past couple of years and have had to be healed in order to move forward in my life. This cleansing has left me feeling renewed and more connected than ever to life and my relationships. While the examination and cleansing phases were not pleasant, even painful at times, they were so worth it in the end. Much like this beautiful sunny day that is unfolding, my life awoke to a sunny day at the end of that dark period of my life and it has proved to be so much better than I could ever imagine.
So do I believe that we are going through an ascension and raising our vibration as a society and as a species? I do. I really do believe it, but I also know that there is a lot more work to be done. Even personally I feel that I have a lot more work to do to really get where I feel like I have cleared out my old baggage. Maybe I will never feel like that work is done. My guess is that it is the work of a lifetime and the lessons get learned as we’re ready for them. And that’s ok with me. On a global level I feel like we’ve just gotten started, so the work there is massive. But it starts with each individual person doing their work on themselves and in their lives. We each need to figure out who we are and what we stand for and hold that to the highest level possible. If we all live with integrity and hold our governments accountable for doing the same then the world will be a much better place. Spread the positive energy and light of your life as far and wide as possible. Smile at strangers and give each other the benefit of the doubt. Agree to disagree, but search for common ground. The divisiveness will only be healed by really listening with a loving and open heart to each other. You might be surprised to find out that you have much more in common than you thought. Be a Light Warrior, a soldier for the Light, for Truth, for Love. Shield yourselves and do your protections, but get out there and spread your Light in the world as much as you can.
