It’s incredible to be alive at this point in the planet’s evolution.
So much, in just our lifetime, has drastically changed on every level. I’m 51 years old, and the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s no longer exist as memories to draw upon in an effort to live this life.
The overhaul to our bodies, minds, and hearts has been extensive, brutal, and at times downright unbearable. But here we are, alive and getting our bearings on how to maneuver in this new energy with our new apparatus. (a.k.a. body, mind, heart)
There is no question that something has changed. We are newer, lighter, freer, malleable, transparent, vulnerable, and way more compassionate.
If you are not feeling this way, just know that it’s totally available, like instantaneously available, if you move your energy out of the past or future, and into the space of right now.
It’s like our brains have been re-wired while we were sleeping, (well, actually, not only while we were sleeping….I’ve felt some pretty strange brain fog symptoms, mostly around memory, words, language, writing, etc).
While we all know we have a brain that contains a left side and a right side; the left handling all things linguistic, linear, logical, and factual, and the right handling all things creative, holistic, intuitive, and feeling; there seems to have been a definite shift to more of a ‘wholistic brain vibe’ – certainly more right oriented, but with the left quieted down quite a lot, almost like it’s being given retirement with the invitation to jump back in anytime we need it, instead of it being in the control seat.
So when I say ‘wholistic’ I mean we are being shown that we have a choice here. It’s like we are being shown, by the right brain being powered up and the left quieting down, that whatever side we are using the most, we get to create from that place….create our world!
It’s like we are being given a taste of what gurus and enlightened beings had to wait eons for through meditation, strict diets, and various rites and practices.
In my own life, I’ve somehow been able to stand back and observe (and write about) all these subtle and not so subtle changes (mostly internal) over the course of the past several years. There is no way that I am the same person now that I was at 40, 45, or even last year!
I came across a captivating discussion about this from Jill Bolte, the brain researcher and neuroanatomist who suffered a stroke which took her nine years to fully recover from. It’s from a Ted Talk that she did. The video is about 20 minutes long, but it is riveting, even though it’s already 6 years old. If you haven’t already seen it, it’s worth the time to watch, if only for the pure, passionate, oneness this woman has lived to tell about.
These are the days….and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere or anyone else in this moment.
