You may say to yourself, “There is so much further to go! So much needs to change!” Do not focus on the end goal, it can be daunting and elicit feelings of defeat … focus on the journey, have fun with it, life is meant to be a dance. Recognize that no matter how lonely you may feel at times, you are never alone.

Emergence ~ You may notice you are in an intense process of emergence, coming into the next cycle of life. Unlike more gradual shifts in awareness you have experienced, this one is happening quite rapidly and came on somewhat unexpectedly. You may even think you are unprepared for such dramatic changes in your life, yet you are prepared and can put to use the experiences and wisdom you have accumulated up to now.
Life is demanding that you move into the next stage of maturity. This requires you to adjust your thinking about yourself, others, and your community. It calls for you to shed yet another layer of you ego-filled defenses and let go of any illusions of being less than who you are.
This period of emergence is one of a broadened consciousness and heightened perceptual capacities; and since it is inevitable, it is best to surrender to the flow and allow yourself to gracefully move into the next cycle of your life.
Get grounded ~ Spend time in nature, allow the earth to assist you in leveling out the senses.
Breathing ~ Your breath is the crossover between Spirit and physical reality. Breathing comfortably and steadily helps you align yourself with Spirit, which then brings a clearer focus on what creative expression is preparing to be birthed through, and from you. Discard any habitual thought patterns that would prevent the manifestation of what you are being prompted to bring forth. Allow yourself to take risks with this self-expression, and all of Creation will smile upon you.
Release and Activation ~ Nature and all of its sounds and aromas may assist you in releasing tensions, or a warm bath may ease the stresses from your mind and body. Music may activate your hearing, which sparks the pleasure centers in your brain. Art may activate your emotional responses. The touch of another human may activate a deep need to be physically held in some manner again.
Now is the time for action. Engage in some activity and be fully present so that you forget about your surroundings and enter into that timeless and multidimensional experience of union with the focus of your creative attention. Let your physical body be active. Movement alone – whether quietly dancing by yourself or hiking up a hill – will require you to be as present as possible in your body. Enjoy!
