When we experience things that are not physically visible, we may wonder if they are real or actually affect us. For example, when our hormones are wreaking havoc on our systems – as they do for teens and pregnant women – we don’t always identify what is really going on. Rather, we react with the impact of this unseen force, sometimes subtly and other times quite intensely. Like hormones, energy is a powerful, unseen force that affects all of us. Although the sun didn’t stop shining and the earth didn’t collapse around us on December 21, 2012, the impact of the energetic shifts we are experiencing is enormous.
Like the teen or mother-to-be, collectively we have entered a huge evolutionary transition. Spiritually and humanly, we are becoming a grander being.
And, unfortunately, like the hormonal surges we’ve all experienced during times of major physical growth and change, these energetic surges can affect our emotions as well as our other bodies. We may find ourselves feeling uncertain, angry, lost, blissed-out, weepy – sometimes all at once – at the drop of a hat.
Energetically we are experiencing a “divide” within us. This can feel like a great loss, as if we are grieving. Simultaneously, there is also a “quickening.” Excitement, anticipation and even anxiety can well up within us for no perceivable reason. As we expand into greater awarenesses, things begin to feel like a paradox, which only adds confusion – of course!
Simply acknowledging the unseen forces and their notable affects will help ease the intensity. Although there may not be visible signs, you can rest assured that you are not imagining the energetic shifts of our times.
It’s extremely helpful to recognize that you, as well as our planet, are in transition.
Knowing you’re not alone is not only comforting; it can make it easier to find information and resources. It’s also nice to note that transitions, by definition, imply a phase. This transition is temporary. By remembering “this too shall pass,” you can put whatever is going on in perspective.
