It’s been a while since I’ve shared my perceptions of transformative energies that are sweeping through the world. This is a longer post for those of you who are inclined to read this.
Tapping Into Your Own Energy Today
If you would like a Solstice meditation to uplift your energy, check out Ken Stone at solsticeforyoursoul.com. I always find his guided meditations leave me feeling blissed out. I listened to this meditation earlier today, and think it could help you align your energy with the reversals that are coming.
A Time for Personal Strength
Today is the Solstice, a day when energies around the world mirror our yearly transition of the orbit of the earth around the sun.
This is also a day when if we are listening through our soul’s antenna, destiny is calling all of us who are alive in these days of tremendous change.
As we move through these dramatic times, compassion and caring are the most important strengths we can develop. Today is a good day to align yourself with those aspects of yourself.
Practically speaking, the Solstice is always a day when seasonal trends reverse:
If you’re in the northern hemisphere, this is the longest day of the year. The days will get shorter until December 21st.
And if in the southern hemisphere, this is the shortest day of the year for you, and the days are now about to get longer.
We Are in the Midst of a Bigger Shift
The days we are living through contain profound energies and opportunities for positive change that are beneficial for you, especially when you don’t resist the change.
We are in the middle of a huge collective reversal that is changing belief sets that have been in existence for thousands of years.
Not everyone likes this reversal. In fact, you might not like it, because it is so deeply ingrained in our belief sets.
Because the belief that is being reversed is the idea that mono-cultures are good for us.
This doesn’t mean there is no room for tribes or homogeneity. There is something in human nature that likes to be surrounded by people who are like us. In the book, Thrive by Dan Buettner points to cultures and people who seem happier when they share a certain amount of similarity.
Yet on the whole, if my logic and intuition are correct:
We are moving into a long period of time (millennia) when diversity is cherished across the earth.
Humans have lived in a world where for thousands of years, different cultures have insisted on and often gone on to create gruesome wars in order to protect a single idea, religion, culture or world view. Humanity on the whole has sought to drive out wildness and diversity and dissent.
We did this because it seemed safer for humanity to do so.
Collectively, we destroyed forests across the world, limited the number of species of preferred animals and food, and societal structures.
It may be that we had to go through these changes to survive as a species and evolve our consciousness.
In modern times, we see the drive for monoculture as an underlying goal in most corporations. The underlying goal for most capitalist companies is to create products and services in such a way that monopolies are created and profits are maximized. This is such a prevalent idea, that we don’t always see it, especially if the monopoly is led by a charismatic leader such as a Steve Jobs.
In agriculture, we collectively created a world where mono-cultures of food crops now dominate the world. For many in the world, there is only one true religion, the one they are following.
Developing Your Individuality
An interconnected world and human consciousness is changing all of this. And I would contend that the divine Spirit that connects us all together is also letting us know that it favors this change and loves diversity.
In individuals, we have sometimes honored versatility. I’ve always liked to read about Sir Isaac Newton because he was a scientist, astrologer and a devout man. In his time, you could be them all. Same with Leonardo Da Vinci. But if you were a woman with that same combination of interests in those days, God help you! You were much more likely to be burnt at the stake for being a heretic than become renowned for your versatility.
We are moving into a new time, when diversity will be appreciated much more than mono-culture. That means a culture of men and women working together is the one that will flourish. We need a vast collection of opinions, ideas, religious beliefs, plants, organic foods, cultures to help the world make a quantum leap into a more just, prosperous and peaceful world.
At the same time that differences can be celebrated, we are all connected by a common humanity, whether we like it or not. Many of us also believe we are connected with all of life energetically, including stones, trees, mountains, oceans and other worlds, and they are trying to get through to us.
What does this all mean for you?
It means that being unique is already starting to be valued more than fitting in. If you look at the situation in our global economy with an open mind, you can see that the collective whole needs us to express our unique perspective and talents.
On a more psychic note, today’s Solstice is carrying powerful energies to help you to reverse the trends of your life.
If you have been unhealthy much of your life, you can find healing and health in the months and years ahead.
If you have tried too much to fit in, opportunities will arise for you to stand out, more quickly, the more authentic you are.
If you have been working alone for too long, you will find your tribe to support you.
If you have been overwhelmed by the needs of others, you will have time for your needs to now be met.
The reversal you will see is as individual as you are.
The end result is the same however. By being your unique self to your best ability, you will feel more connected to everyone and everything on this planet more than you ever have before.
Enjoy this Solstice. Some people like to make a wish today. You might enjoy writing your destiny between now and the December solstice to be a witness to what changes in your life. I believe you will see some very positive reversals in your life.
