Suffering just means you're having a bad dream. Happiness means you're having a good dream. Enlightenment means getting out of the dream altogether.
- Jed McKenna
The vibration we project out is what we attract within our sphere of awareness. This is a time to be very intentional about what frequency we choose to immerse ourselves in. Last week, while I was on our beach vacay I was revelling in the fun of jumping in the surf and laughing with my daughter. I was experiencing my joy. And while I was in this energetic high, everyone I met wore welcoming smiles, people were nice and we were happy. Even my FB feed was all sunshine, butterflies, flowers and cherubs.
Then we flew back home early this week, back to the “real” world. We had an extra long tiring day, nerves were frayed and I got tetchy with the husband…we got short with each other in the supermarket. You see earlier that day, I knowingly read a click-bait article on the internet about the current situation that’s unfolding in the US. It raised a strong reaction within me about the injustice and heartbreak that was happening. Even though I didn’t leave a comment, I wanted to and at that moment, I entered the fray. And in taking part, I lowered my frequency. At once I understood what was happening. Until today, I noticed that people around me were still feeling disturbed and I was still seeing those articles about that orange dude in my FB feed. Silly me was reading them and the comments ad nauseum. I had waded into the energy of conflict, surrounding myself in it and I was being triggered to feel fear.
However, the moment I recognised what was happening, I pulled myself out of the duality energy and decided to stand with the inner observer once more. Because there is a third path available. You can opt to not take sides. You can choose to become the watcher. Acknowledging your own energetic condition dissolves any discord within and allows you to step back into your own aligned home frequency. Time to get friendly with your own push buttons, lovely.
Then when you decide to enter the melee again, you can do so with awareness and you can be the one who pushes people’s buttons. Because this age of awakening isn’t finished yet. There will be further discord sown, we will be pushed to even more extremes. We haven’t reached fever pitch yet. Far from it.
We have incarnated in these times to take part and bear witness to the conscious awakening of an entire generation. But before every momentous change, there is monumental conflict…and we’re being invited to dance with fire. Try not to get burned, my loves.
