What to Remember During a Dismemberment

wallpaper-127424-1.jpgby Jane Burns

A great deal has been felt and remarked upon due to recent changes on the political stage of this country. Whether this is a time of hope and celebration for you, or a time of impending doom, it should remain clear to everyone that a turbulent and difficult time lies ahead. For everyone.

Almost everyone has an idea about what will happen next. However, we should keep in mind that what is happening now is unprecedented for us, and none of us knows what will happen next, not even those who have taken the reigns. If there is any rule to follow now, it is: expect the unexpected. Continue reading

Shaman Sickness

AKA Shamanic Dismemberment, which is a significant spiritual event that I – and likely many readers – have experienced. Kundalini often initiates a deep shamanic journey by dismantling much of who and what we are… and shoving nudging us toward our highest expression. The next post will be a deeper look into ‘dismemberment.’

Going through life, we can forget who we are.

Maybe a little bit, or maybe a lot—sometimes so much so, we need a huge-ass wake up call to help us remember.

The latter is what happened to me.

I was trucking along (not-so-merrily) on my way to a “normal life.” I went to a good college, got a full scholarship to grad school, got accepted into the Presidential Management Fellows program, and then landed a climate change-related job that, on paper, sounded like I was saving the planet.

Except I felt like I had lost who I fundamentally was.

It wasn’t that the work I was doing wasn’t important; I just felt super disconnected, like I couldn’t tangibly see or feel how I was making a difference.

My relationship at the time was also intense. We really loved each other, but we were also both dealing with a situation that was largely out of our hands. You see, he had run into some legal trouble, and I was trying valiantly to figure out how the f*ck to save him.

Which is, of course, when my body went haywire. Continue reading

Intensity & Heaviness – April Energy, Lee Harris

Lee Harris’ April Energy Report video here. Many seem to be feeling a kind of heaviness, or dark night, or grief, or anger and the like coming up lately. I can say I’ve been feeling a bit raw myself.

Lee’s take is that the Love & Light Brigade is giving way (or maturing, maybe?) in response to a need to claim & maintain stronger presence/discernment/personal boundaries in ways that will become more noticeable during this month.

That said, he also anticipates psychic/intuitive/energetic gifts will become more & more prevalent in people’s experience. Continue reading

Riding the Storm Out

“It’s a shit storm!” yelped a friend. I’m throwing the gauntlet down before MYSELF and am sharing the challenge with you, if you are also experiencing “interesting times,” to suck up the Grace!

7 Truths of Ascension

by Michael Hallett

There is an ancient Chinese curse that runs, “May you live in interesting times.” We are certainly living in interesting times—the time of  Ascension—and it often feels like a curse. The physical, mental and emotional symptoms of Ascension can be debilitating for long periods. The anxiety, pressure and sense of always being on edge can feel overwhelming.

At such times I have cursed the Ascension process and wished I were back in the good old world of 3D. There is no way back. There’s only the next day, the next wave of ever-higher energy, the next insoluble problem to be solved. To escape the curse of Ascension, it helps to know some home truths about it:

1. Ascension isn’t pretty

Spiritual growth. Getting our angel wings. Tuning in to the messages of the heart. It all sounds lovely. Ascension has you lying on the floor howling in pain. Driving in your car screaming with rage. Everything collapsing around you; the loss of dear friends; the need to distance oneself from family…

Ascension changes you from a caterpillar into a butterfly. This, too, sounds lovely—except that, in its cocoon, the caterpillar melts into a primal soup with no recognizable DNA. Continue reading
