Cosmic Insights for December 2019
As life continues to bounce and ricochet each of us around like a squash ball on double espressos, there is an understandable sense of soul-level weariness rising up from deep within. I’m not sure if it’s just me, but there seems to be a palpable and tangible rise in pain, not only within me, but more noticeably within the hearts and souls of just about everyone I come into contact with. It’s as though the filters that once closed the curtains to many of our troubles have fallen away and left us naked, exposed and vulnerable.
The intensity of the emotions howling through me have taken my breath away at times as I’ve suddenly found myself thrown into a pit of intense and profound insights. It feels as though every single one of my senses has been turned up and the volume of the world has been put on maximum so there’s no shutting it out. Yet, my own experiences seem to pale into insignificance when I see the agony and distress within others. I want to reach out to help, to hold their hand, to say it will be okay, but words and platitudes aren’t enough, as there’s a need to give 100%, to dive in and be there with them, but no one truly has the capacity for that at the moment.
This ongoing exposure to such intensity is causing many souls to buckle and break under the pressure; looking around it feels like something of an emotional and spiritual wasteland of broken souls, each one facing their own depths and on a quest for peace and release. However, rising up from the core of this pain is a beautiful and breath-taking energy of clarity, peace and tranquility. When we’re going through the pain, it’s hard to see that it will pass, but intuitively we know it will.
Some of us cannot sense this transience, so it’s important (if we’re able) to offer a supportive hand if needed, as none of us are in this alone. We each need to accept that we cannot fix others, as this is a time to face ourselves and the depths within in order to find our own resources and strength. For many healers and intuitive souls, this feels deeply counter-intuitive as there is a desire to take away the pain we see in the eyes of others and to soothe their distress, but this seems to be more of a time for more introspection and self-compassion than a time for rolling up our sleeves and getting stuck in.
Of course, when we’re standing in exquisite pain and the world seems to be ploughing chaotically on, it’s easy to feel disconnected and alone, as though we’re the only ones feeling this pain and everyone else is carrying on as though nothing has happened. Of course, logically we know this isn’t true, but when the intense emotions rampage through our hearts and souls it’s easy to feel overcome and submerged by the constant ebb and flow of the tides of life.
We are living in a world of uncertainty and turbulence, and although we’re all feeling the effects of this in all areas of our lives, it seems to be being felt most acutely from within. Sometimes the pain we feel is so intense it feels like we’re being ripped in two, so it’s hard to feel a sense of ‘it’s ok, it will pass’, but it will pass, just like the night moves to day, it will pass. Of course, knowing this doesn’t help much when we’re in the grip of a crisis of pain and intense emotion, but this is a chapter of re-birth of epic proportions and it’s stirring up a great deal in the process. It’s a means to an end, an essential process of this journey of self-discovery that we all find ourselves on. We are moving towards calmer seas and a more tranquil way of living and being, it just takes a ride through this storm to get there…
For now, I wish you all kinds of wonderful.
