Are you going through a shift? Have you shifted your emphasis sufficiently from fear to love such that you have raised the frequency of your personal vibration? If so, you may very well be in the peak stage of the clearing phase of your transformation. At this stage of it, life can appear hopeless. This is not the case, at all. However, your ‘old’ reality is disappearing and your ‘new’ reality is just beginning to break through. During the shift we often experience what may appear as a breakdown. However, it is actually a breakthrough. Outwardly, at this stage, your life may appear to yourself and others as a meltdown or malfunction. You may have to let go of possessions, people, goals, and even huge chunks of your current lifestyle. Our comfortable habits and patterns, motivations and directions and even, sometimes, whole aspects of our identity disappear. You have reached the place where you become the phoenix. The old disappears into ashes and you choose who you wish to be!
Do not worry that your ‘old’ life will disappear overnight completely. It doesn’t, although it sometimes feels that way. The compassionate universe always provides us with a link of some sort to our ‘old’ life as we simultaneously shift our attention from its busyness, clutter and drama to what we are now co-creating with Source. This phase is, for many of us, a very challenging time. Our soul is telling us that we are not limited anymore. It is at this phase that we really need to relax and ‘let go.’ We move into the stage of resting and mellowing. The linkage phase between old and new has arrived. How long in earth time this phase lasts is unique to each of us. Have patience and enjoy the special qualities of this space. Do not let your ego fool you into thinking that if you rest and let go that you will fall into an abyss or die. You won’t. As we know, the ego is fearful and unaware that our Higher Self is now doing the navigating through this magical turning point.
It is tempting, at this phase, to wish to turn the boat around and go back! Some of us come face to face, once again, with our old fight-or-flight reactions. Our go-to response. However, if we take a few nice deep breaths, get onto our yoga mats or practice some Tai Chi or Qi Gong or go for a swim or walk and keep reminding ourselves “out with the old and in with the new” we find it easier to merge into the energy of living one moment at a time and one day at a time and we begin to connect with inner and outer resources that we didn’t even know were available. We let go of ‘shoulds’ and embrace uncertainty and silence as new friends on our journey. Silence is golden. We go within. We take the deep dive to the center of our Being and begin the new phase of coming home to our Self. As Rainer Maria Rilke states: ” Fear not the strangeness you feel. The future must enter you long before it happens. Just wait for the birth, for the hour of new clarity.” The ‘new’ you is a copy of no one else. It is uniquely yours and is found deep within. Gently, slowly, you will find yourself discovering new desires and you will live into your new life.
When you come home to your Self , accepting full responsibility for your own life and having navigated through the oftentimes rocky seas and storms and endured the periods of emptiness and uncertainty that sometimes occurs, you will find your “pearl of great price” and recognize your divinity. True Self is a Divine Being. Enjoy living into your ‘new’ life. Your own version of “Xanadu.”
