‘De-railing’ effect in the collective

Do you feel like:

You are unable to ground whatever you try

Feeling lost, disconnected and disintegrated

In doubt of what you need and want

Seeking something constantly

Unable to find anything that helps

Values, believes and morals are being questioned in a big way

Death anxiety

Feeling anxious and vulnerable all the time

Inner child in distress or near-death situation

Unable to cope

Feeling restless and can’t focus on any one thing

Frantic feeling in the body, wanting to escape

Depressed and low

Persistent nightmares

And much more…

I have been feeling all of the above for the last two month since January began and what a shock? It feels merciless, confusing, unsettling and just unmanageable. I have been doing things I don’t normally do and on reflection it’s really striking the influence of these energies. If you are worried about this like I have been it is worth noting that these are energies, that even though expected 2019 signature, are playing out in the collective right now in a big way and it is not over yet. This year is going to be a tough one, but like all best lessons, this year’s ones will be most valuable in aiding us to move forward. Hold on tight

The hardest and incredibly strong pull and push is particularly around your realities and your spiritual or religious beliefs. If nothing else watch what happens there. Fascinating and can lead to all sorts of ‘deceiving’ outcomes.

Stay safe and well!


The opposite effect of nature


When you seek solitude, peace and comfort in nature and pulled into its surroundings sometimes it might feel rejecting, uncomfortable and not what one would expect. It is easy to project our own dissatisfaction with experience onto trees, weather, ground and woods’ inhabitants even, such as insects or birds. We project even then just like one would do with people and relationships as when something feels uncomfortable it is often natural to direct it into something or someone else. This is an unconscious but a common reaction. However, when we stop and look at what is happening we will see that what is needed is simply staying with emotion in any given moment without throwing it at what is nearest to us. This can happen in nature this process of blaming and dissatisfaction and when this occurs it is a sign there is resistance to being with ourselves. What is it within us that we are afraid to look at? What is it we look to nature to soothe within us? Nature is there to reflect back to us what needs attention. It is there to heal, but also if anything feels particularly yukky it will focus your attention on that very thing and it will manifest in either your projecting out or quickly running back home.

Instead of seeking to escape and hiding I would invite you to stay with it, observe what happens to you in the moment of friction between something within you and something on outside. Observe, feel deep into it and sit with it for as long as needed. Nature will certainly facilitate that process for us with love and attention, with its holding energy of the Earth. Allow it, bleed it out and what better place to do it than amongst trees, birds’ song and stillness of the forest.
