When we let go of the illusion that things should be different from the way they are and surrender to what is happening (even though it could be the most uncomfortable time to do so), it could be the most amazing time to just let go and create a space to hold the vision of the new You! As it is written in the Gospels of Mary Magdalene, “We want the Soul to lead us. And that’s often frightening because the Soul is constantly leading us towards what’s new, what’s next, what has never been before. The Soul wants us to be fully present in the now because transformation only happens in the present tense!” And, It has no problem striping us down until we get the message! That’s how we finally get to feel who we really are. That’s how the universe shows us!

As we are giving birth to a new world/humanity and going through changes, all of us in one way or another are at that precipice having to make difficult choices as to what we would like to bring into the new world we are creating. Everything that we as the collective and as individuals have held and suppressed since the beginning of time are now coming up to be reckoned with!

As we are awakening to take more responsibility for ourselves and becoming more authentic, expanding our abilities to reflect our truth and wisdom, it’s requiring a new kind of courage within us all. With almost every planet in the sky in retrograde plus the coming eclipses, all these new frequencies are bringing everything up to the surface in all ways. We are birthing a new story as the old is being blasted away to make space for a new consciousness!

Through all these turbulent changes, we are cultivating the strength, courage and resilience to become more grounded and stay the course to move through these challenging times. This is the best time to let go of what no longer serves so we can create the space for all the new and upcoming energies that the next few eclipses, retrogrades and planetary alignments is offering us.

Astrologically, it’s a perfect storm for setting your intentions and beginning to hold the vision, then making memories you can’t forget! Everything we need is inside, as the author Paulo Coehlo wrote, “I have inside me the winds, the deserts, the oceans, the stars, and everything created in the universe. We were all made by the same hand, and we have the same soul. We are made of star dust!”

In these times of tremendous change lies in each moment the opportunity to know the presence of the Divine that is always with us. More than ever, we need to cultivate a new level of trust and faith. As the channel, Paul Selig speaks in his book, ‘Alchemy’, “There is never a moment without the presence of the Divine, although your availability to it, through personality, persona, identity, may be diminished by your fear, by your idea of what is so, and the importance you give to an outcome that has not yet come. Each of you here, in your own way, have come to be sung in a new voice.” We have incarnated at this time not to make things better. We have come here now to make things New!

We are at a turning point in all of our relationships. Especially the one with ourselves!  The more resilient we are enables us to embrace more and more changes in our life. We have the potential to create a new normal that is making it possible to thrive beyond our wildest dreams. However, the one key we require to unlock that door is that we have to be willing to change our perspective of who we are. Many are still unaware of their power and we have now become the bridge between heaven and earth. Taking baby steps and learning to cross the bridge from the world that is saying bye-bye into the new world that is not quite here yet requires a new perception. The essential and necessary revolution must happen within ourselves. What’s more, everything depends on our attitude – our attitude toward ourselves. It is essential for all of us to no longer diminish ourselves and claim ourselves it a new way, not judging, feeling we should be this or that, to sing a new song, create a different story. This new way of being not only transforms ourselves but everything that is all around us.  It is that simple. Are you ready to step into your power? To say yes to the yes in you!

The essential revolution must happen within ourselves. If we wish to see the world as bigger and better, a greater place, we must affirm the reality of a bigger and better being within ourselves. It is the ultimate purpose of why we are here. How we can expand into the Divine being we are. We must readjust ourselves to know we deserve everything! We are the Ones that can only make the change. And, what we tell ourselves about ourselves will make all the difference!

As the brilliant astrologer, Lorna Bevan wrote, “When you surrender, when you reconcile yourself to things you cannot change, you set in motion a sequence of events in a whole new direction. Usually it takes these fixed inevitable to free us from what you have previously created and become identified within. There arises on the inside a grace, a blessing, a gift that could not arise in an easier light. You realize what carries you through and what stops you. You get down to a core lesson that may prove to be your springboard into an entirely different octave of existence. And at the innermost center of this drama, you may be granted a vision of your purpose and your essential path, at a level beyond anything you could dream up when you were entangled. You are seeking here to send yourself beyond all that you’ve ever known by entering physical earth existence at a very intense level and cracking through the collective and ancestral code.”

Just in case you haven’t felt the energy pull of everything that is happening, our bodies are going through a complete rewiring as we ascend to a newer dimension. However, rest assured, we are not dying, we are just being re-calibrated. As we are undergoing this re-wiring stage, it is imperative that we go with the flow and not stop the process with our judgments, criticisms and projections. When we do, we change the whole energy field into something less than love. It’s equivalent to having the signal lights on our dashboard taken out. Those emotions, however uncomfortable, are only trying to tell us to take a deeper look so we can discover what wants to come to the surface to be loved. In addition, for many of us who are on the fast-track, just remember to practice self-care. These times are a changin’ and everything is unfolding in the ‘Now Age’, it is going to demand an even greater responsibility for us to continue to anchor the Light!  More than ever it’s essential to focus on what’s new and not on what has been deleted!

Even though the Phoenix is Rising, I believe no matter what will come from these ashes of ages of darkness that we have endured through eternity – no matter how harsh, challenging or uncomfortable, we will prevail!  What’s more, we may be entering this gateway feeling confused, overwhelmed, and unsure, but we will leave it with a clearer knowing, a stronger sense of our destiny, and more connected to our personal power! As Anne Lamott wrote, “We begin to find and become ourselves when we notice how we are already found, already truly, entirely, wildly, messily, marvelously who we were born to be.”
