If you’ve been feeling a lot like a stranger in a strange land lately, then you’re not alone. To some extent, we are all feeling the insanity of today’s world. Many are asking how human kind arrived at such a fractured point in time.
Hate crimes have escalated, racism is rampant, gun violence is everywhere, and so many parts of the world are either at war physically, socially, economically, or threatening it.
By now, we all know our political and voting system is rigged. Political players employ a cauldron of dirty tricks through outright Diebold voting machine irregularities and/or voter suppression. Makes one wonder how many of our past leaders were really Diebold presidents. Corporate corruption seems commonplace, yet few are being held accountable for their actions. Where is truth and honesty?
While it might seem like we are being bombarded by dark forces at this time in human evolution, we are also being bathed in illuminating Light from the cosmos, which makes the dark elements more obvious even to the most unaware. What was once hidden has now come raging to the surface where it can be seen, experienced, and hopefully transformed. The blinders have come off and each and every one of us is being called to act in some shape, manner or form. The question is are we ready?
I attended a spiritual meditation retreat a few weekends ago and quite a few participants revealed to the group that they are experiencing profound bouts of anxiety and depression, and have been for some time. They reported feeling isolated, adrift, hopeless and scared. They admitted having lost a connection to their true Self. This problem of disconnection appears to be at an all time epidemic proportion.
Recent statistics cite that 350 million people around the world currently suffer from some sort of depression. The U.S. suicide rate has surged to a 30 year high. To further support these findings, the mortality rate has also significantly increased on a national scale for the first time in a decade.
What’s happening? One of my astrologer friends informs me that planetary influences right now aren’t helping make the situation any easier. Whether you believe in astrology or not, four major planets are in retrograde (Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto), meaning they have slowed down, forcing disruption and change on a global scale. This many planets in retrograde at the same time is considered unusual.
To glean some insight: Pluto in Capricorn correlates with soul evolution; Saturn in Sagittarius with karma and relationships; Neptune in Pisces with religious persecution; and Mars in Scorpio brings forth aggression and risky behavior. The alignments they make with each other bring forth conflict, obstacles, yet ultimately some form of resolution.
Marianne Williamson, well-known lecturer on A Course in Miracles, recently said that “the universe is self-organizing, but also self-correcting.” Meaning that slavery was followed by freedom from slavery; suppression of the female voice was followed by the women’s right to vote law, etc.
When a majority of the human race perceives there is a serious problem that excludes, unfairly punishes, or is unhealthy to “the People,” they will then rally together to make change. Like GMO labeling. As Senator Bernie Sanders says, “We are on the brink of a social revolution.” But remember—revolution contains the word “evolution”—the ultimate goal. And that means GROWTH.
Growth is everywhere. Even the universe is expanding 9% faster right now than scientists can explain. Which means, something unusual is happening. According to Spaceweather.com, cosmic rays are increasing and the earth’s magnetic field is changing. With increased cosmic rays comes more global illumination—LIGHT. With Light, comes increased Truth and Transparency.
Could we all be experiencing these changes on both a cellular and soul level? ABSOLUTELY. Will we be able to transcend this difficult time—I have little doubt despite the rocky road ahead. The greatest advice anyone can give is to open your heart and let go of whatever you hold or harbor against anyone, even yourself. Raise your consciousness and embrace love not hate and the cosmic ride will be a lot smoother.
