All around me, and though the stories I hear from ones close to me – we are experiencing a collective ‘Death’.
Not the kind of Death where you leave your physical form necessarily. But the clear sign that something has ended in your journey. And something new is about to begin.
I am humbled by the sharings of friends and family, and for the signs shown in my life which help me see this now. Death is upon us, and it is a good thing. It has been for some time now.
For we are, by the thousands, letting go of old ways of thinking, feeling, behaving and expecting. We’re transforming our perceptions of the world and leaving the old one behind.
As the pioneers, the path-makers, the path-breakers, the anchors of a New Vibration (that is, beautifully and powerfully Ancient).
It seems that so many have begun to explore uncharted territories. And for many of us, the rate of this last shift has been completely ‘out of the blue’. So rapid, so transformative – and one that blindsided so many, catching us off guard.
So don’t worry if you’re feeling tearful, vulnerable, or even oddly detached … or just somehow different. It’s something that everyone is facing and experiencing, in their own way. A Unique experience for each, but one that resonates, in some fundamental way, with Many, if not All.
I feel as though we are now recognizing the Sacrifices that we have made in our lives and the Sacrifices that others have made for us so we may be Here, Now.
And the Journey has just Begun.
We look at our husks, at our discarded forms, at the Old Selves we used to inhabit. Almost unrecognizable. As though, in a strange way you’re viewing your own funeral – just like Huck Finn.
I feel as though we died, so many times, over and over again …. Our ashes went scattered into the wind. And somewhere beneath an ancient oak, a beautiful, perfect egg appeared in its place.
A tiny Beak now pokes through the shell and marvels at its first Glimpse of a New World….
We’ve finally made it.
