Pain is the teacher, our hearts are the compass and change is the solution. Matt DiLorenzo
I’ve been writing about this Surreal Summer, the numerous distractions and the unease that plagued me the past few months. In an attempt at identifying and hopefully clearing the nervous energy that so many of us felt, the Global Psychics team began sharing their thoughts, especially on managing the fear that was underneath our anxiety. We have been responding to a growing apprehension on the planet. With so many earth changes shattering so many lives, and 2012 rapidly approaching, a lot of folks are afraid of what might be coming next. So, we are sharing these excerpts from our discussions to support you in overcoming or at least working through whatever fears you may be holding.
Phil: Well, perhaps some of what we’re currently picking up on is what I was sensing in July’s forecast, it felt like July and August would feel like two tectonic plates were about to snap, eegs! I was also getting some hits about the stormy and rocky Southern Hemisphere, although this unusual heatwave in the US is certainly not helping our Canadian friends with getting much of a lock on how far South is South. (Editor’s note: earlier in the discussion I had spoken of the feeling that there would be a serious problem south of me.) But I gotta pat myself on the back for mentioning that plutocrats would probably be seeing time in Libra’s halls of justice, now that Saturn was beginning to move direct again, and there goes Rupert Murdoch’s empire crumbling all around his sorry and evil butt. The more I know about this guy and what his Faux News and News of the World have been up to, the more I cheer Saturn on.
Again though, the more these “coming Earth changes” are becoming more real every day, expecting the unexpected is becoming the norm, or at least it should be IMO. Along these lines, I did a ritual at the New Moon eclipse of July 1, and got a very mysterious message the team might be able to appreciate, or maybe not because I’m still trying to wrap my brain around it. As background, we humans are simply hard-wired to fear unexpected changes, so my ritual was about releasing whatever fears were remaining, pretty much a standard request around here. The message I got back was basically, “Release the fears you can’t possibly articulate at this time,” which of course has left me scratching my head.
Any other head-scratchers out there? “The only thing we need to fear is fear itself” is a fairly reliable mantra but is sure getting tested lately, as is “This too shall pass.” Sheesh! The heck with patience, I want to renegotiate my karmic contract. Phil
Matt: “Release the fears you can’t possibly articulate at this time,” Couple possibilities came to me…..
A) There are fears we’re not aware of. Some are buried deep in our psyche and cannot even be articulated. These can be rooted out with EFT or “tapping” using the setup phrase “Even though I’m (worried or anxious or afraid – pick what seems most appropriate for you) and I don’t know why, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.” Eventually most of us will get a sense of what we’re really afraid of, sometimes in that “Ahah!” moment or in dreams etc. Then we can tap away the specific fear.
B) As you said, the fear of change is endemic. I’m not convinced it’s hardwired though. I think it’s learned and probably caused by a misunderstanding of what this earth is really about. For me this planet is a school planet and we all come here to learn. Pain is the teacher, our hearts are the compass and change is the solution.
Like almost everyone else I resisted change because changing meant jumping off the cliff, not knowing for sure what might happen to me. The more I resisted change the more pain I felt. Eventually I broke and started changing. I noticed that if I made the change that my heart was telling me, things eventually got better and the pain lessened. Often I didn’t get what I expected but what I got made me happier than I had been before. In time I learned to eagerly embrace change when I have pain. It’s never failed me. Every time I change in accordance with the dictates of my heart I find more joy in my life.
So maybe that’s what the message is about, examining our beliefs about change, about chaos and the unknown and verifying whether those fears are justified. Matt
Danielle: I had the same experience with making changes… once I was willing to face my fear of myself… it is like the fear of change is rooted in our fear of looking within ourselves, seeing what is really there, being willing to like and love the “bad guy” we perceive inside ourselves… once we accept ourselves, the rest becomes relatively easy… the biggest breakthrough for me was about 20 years ago… until then I couldn’t remember much of my life before about 10 years old… yet when the memories came, it was clear that there had been no specific traumatic event to shut me down… my manic depressive alcoholic father had created so much fear in me through those early years that the little girl in me had shrunk away… once I reached out to her and she started coming out of her shell, the wall of fear in me began to break down… real change began to manifest for me… and an authentic happiness began to take over…. and you’re right also in saying that things didn’t turn out as expected or asked for… but in the end, better for me…
What I have learned about fear is that whatever danger I feel almost always feels bigger and more threatening than it actually is once I find the courage to face it…
Phil: The “fears I can’t possibly be able to articulate at this time” has much more to do with the upcoming energetics we’re all sensing, perhaps the “fear” of not being able to recognize the next dimension opening up when it will, or at least that’s been one initial observation, the messages keep on coming on an almost daily basis. I keep asking my spooks for their grace in allowing me to be in the right place at the right time for when it all does come down, and they keep trying to reassure me I’m already there, I just need to have faith and to keep on trusting. This necessarily (?) involves a review of the “just how the heck did I get here?” line of questioning, and fortunately a whole bunch of fellow travellers from the distant past have been popping up to add their affirmations.
Another “fear” I may be sensing is not being able to fully identify the Trickster energetic when it constantly shows up, the seemingly “bad” or “good” information that’s so prevalent in this Information Age, which demands we all remain as centered as we possibly can. And they’ve been pounding it into me lately, that we were never expected to achieve the impossible, just the highly unlikely. Also, the future belongs to the fearless, just like it always has.
BTW, I think it’s important to repeat that these observations are coming from my own level of awareness at this specific time, everything is subject to change when evidence to the contrary dictates otherwise. Peace out, Phil
Teresa: Good stuff! My own biggest fear is that same fear of not being ready when the time comes and whatever is happening opens up and ‘happens’. It’s huge, in fact. Especially since I feel like such a fraud when others tell me how wise I am or good at what I do. I have no idea how I know what I know or where it comes from. It’s a fluke as far as I can tell. So yeah, big time fear there.
I like this statement: we were never expected to achieve the impossible, just the highly unlikely. There is a lot of grace in that proposition. Do what you know. Do what you do. Do whatever in the realm of truth (as you perceive it even) and if you are open even the teensiest bit, you will have succeeded in being where you ARE… Where you need to BE when the time comes. If we could only remind ourselves of this and believe it as truth. But that’s the rub, as they say. We expect so much of ourselves. Hence the fear we aren’t doing enough. But see, ‘do’ vs. ‘be’ may ‘be’ just the answer we need to apply.
After all, for those of us who are parents, we only expect our children to do what they are currently able to do. Oh sure, sometimes we lose it when they don’t do more, but the reality (ha!) is that they are mostly doing the very best they can and that is really all we can ask. So why are we so hard on ourselves? Again, we expect more of ourselves than we need to.
If everyday I strive to do and be my best, if every time I see someone in pain and attempt to alleviate that pain in some way according to the power that is at work within me, then I am exactly where I need to be.
Let’s keep reminding each other–and ourselves–that we are worthy merely by the fact that we are giving it our best when we are called upon. LoLove, Teresa
