If you’ve been feeling like you’re living in the middle of a storm, you’re not alone.
It can be easy to feel isolated and all alone during times of great duress and stress; times of clearing karma.
If one shoe after another keeps falling on you, it can also be easy to take it personally.
Though it’s not easy, it’s not necessarily personal, either. If you feel overwhelmed, know that it’s a time that will pass, much like a storm does. Some storms are so intense that it feels like they’ll never end, but eventually they all do. At times they leave a great amount of destruction in their wake.
Spiritual storms do the same.
If you’ve needed to clear the path in front of you, you might have needed to create a great big storm.
There’s no controlling a storm, one must ride it out. If what’s been raging around you has been intense, it might be driving you deeper within yourself, so that you can find the answers that have been there all along.
There is a lot of completion happening now.
The 21st century, so far, has been about upheaval, destruction, clearing karma, and completing old business. There is an old time finishing now, an old way of living and being. If you’ve already decided that you want to participate in the new energy that’s coming, you’re very likely working on releasing the old.
You may have been doing this for a few years now, or it might have recently intensified for you.
Either way, it’s a reality for many people right now. You might have already been feeling unsatisfied with how you were living your life, and decided to find a true meaning for yourself. You may have returned to a creative passion of yours, one you’d given up because it didn’t make sense or earn income. Your heart’s message may have gotten louder and you simply had to begin listening.
It might even have become pleasant to let go, perhaps this was the year that you learned what was most important to you, and so you could let go of the rest. Maybe the loss of a job or way of living woke you up to the true resources you have within you.
However it came about, there is no doubt that a time of living in one’s own truth is here.
And anything that shuts down your spirit and tells you that you are wrong for wanting to become who and what you want to be, is lying to you.
If you want to achieve your goals, you have to set aside things that get in your way, especially everything that’s not in present time for you. This includes your agreements with other people, including your teachers, bosses, employees, family, friends, neighbors, acquaintances, and adversaries – you may still have agreements you’re completely unconscious of with some of these people.
Facebook has been brilliant for doing this, it’s like a great karma clearing service.
People show up from the past in droves, they find you or you find them, old energy comes with, and you all get to choose to be in present time with each other. Beautiful! Completing old business is easier when you consciously decide to do so.
Meditation is a useful healing tool in doing this, because you can spend quality time being still and not doing a thing, both of which are important to your self knowledge and growth.
Letting go is the key right now. It is in the letting go that healing begins on a deeper level.
“Even chance meetings are the result of karma… Things in life are fated by our previous lives. That even in the smallest events there’s no such thing as coincidence.”
