It’s hard to believe that over a year has passed since the pandemic hit the planet.
My local Starbucks has finally reopened their indoor dining, and just in time, before the heat and humidity eclipse the joy of sipping coffee outdoors. So our little coffee clutch has resumed in the comfort of air conditioning.
But it’s not the same. Something has changed profoundly. The planet has shifted its consciousness, even if we don’t necessarily see it reflected in the news.
Many of us have shifted in profoundly personal ways. We may be continuing our usual routines, but not with the same perspective as before. Some things are no longer of interest to us, and other things, even the mundane ones, have taken on a new life.
Some of us have had deep challenges this past year, either emotional or physical, or a combination of both. Some of us even to the point of wanting to just throw in the towel entirely.
And for a few of us, the challenges we faced have awakened an even deeper desire to see this transformation through.
Our appreciation of life has been renewed, and we are beginning to see life through the eyes and senses of our soul.
Our neighbors, our friends and family may not appear to have shifted as much as we have, but we are, after all, the forerunners of this incredible transformation.
For me one of the hardest challenges has been the physical body, and I have discovered that even if my mind has let go of my past, the physical body tends to hold onto past trauma and patterns and stories. It has its own resistance to the soul’s light. But the whole transformation from human to divine human involves letting go of the old trauma and stories that defined us as the human.
In our heart, we want to let go of those stories, at least of the perspective that makes us victims. Because we know that if we hold onto that perspective, it just cements those patterns into our being.
But at the same time, our mind and body are so addicted to the stories as a way to feel, and as a way to define ourself. And those stories always involved some form of abuse. Whether those stories involved our parents, our role as a woman, a man, or any other limitation we used.
So there may be many emotions surfacing during this transformation, whether it’s fear, sadness, anger, hopelessness, even boredom….and the best thing we can do is to allow them all. Feel them physically and emotionally, don’t run from them. But don’t assume we need to attach a story to them.
That will just hold them to us.
It’s challenging to let them go, and just let our soul integrate them or transform them. But once we do, then we will feel those past experiences from our soul’s perspective. Our soul isn’t into reminiscing about the past and all of the details, or becoming re-traumatized by that past.
Our soul simply and gracefully synthesizes the wisdom from all the experiences we had. And then we feel that in our mind and our body. Then our mind and our body can receive the energies of balance.
We now have the benefit of sensing life like we could never do before. Because life from our soul’s perspective is very sensual. Our soul’s perspective is one of deep sensuality.
This transformation, I have come to realize, is all about a profound shift in perspective. And from there, life has no choice but to serve us in a profoundly new way.
