The world as we know it is changing. Old structures are falling away and it seems like the world is in deep chaos and turmoil. However, this crisis also contains the essence of a new beginning and the emergence of a new consciousness. And you are playing a big role in it!
When we are faced with big changes, it is natural to feel anxious, afraid, and sometimes overwhelmed.
We humans don’t like change because it often makes us feel powerless. We like to be in control of things. We want to know how the next month looks like and what our path moving forward is.
The truth is that control is just an illusion. Everything is always in flux and motion, and the only constant is change and transformation. In the times we live in, the changes have become so fast and so enormous that they feel overwhelming as we are going through an unprecedented time of global transformation.
A Global Dark Night of the Soul
In previous articles, I have written about my dark night of the soul and I believe we are now going through a collective dark night of the soul.
The dark night of the soul is a deep and often necessary time of change. It brings to the surface everything that was hidden and reveals the shadow that is stored in our collective psyche. The shadow contains all aspects of ourselves that we rather not look at because it is too painful to acknowledge.
However, only when the shadow is seen, brought to the light and transformed can it be healed. This is a process of true transformation and although often painful, scary, and frightening, it is ultimately needed so that we, as a global human family, can reach higher levels of consciousness.
An Intuitive Look into the Corona Crisis
When the Corona crisis hit I took an intuitive look into the situation to see what was going on. What I first saw frightened me because, like most humans, I like to think that I am in control. I quickly realized I wasn’t. I saw that this was the beginning of something new. I saw that the Earth, itself a conscious Being, is going through an evolutionary process of transformation, and for this to happen, old structures needed to fall away.
During my intuitive reading, I realized that we humans are like the neurons of mother Earth, and for her to go through this important transformation, we, as the extension of her nervous system, need to do the same. I saw that we all are playing a very important part in this enormous task and that it is the responsibility of each individual to work through the shadow, to heal it, and ultimately reach higher levels of consciousness.
You might have heard this saying before but it holds true more than ever:
“No problem can be solved with the same level of consciousness that created it.”
In fact, all problems that we are facing today globally as well as individually can be solved with one single action: Raising our consciousness. Once we do we see the problems in a different light, and we can connect to a higher field of knowledge that will provide the answers we need.
When I realized this, it gave me hope: Hope that we are actually on a good trajectory. Before something new can emerge the old needs to fall away and this is often a very painful and frightening process. But once we realize that chaos is necessary for something new and better to emerge, we can come out of our collective shock, and regain our ability to take action. Then we can see the bigger picture and see our pivotal role in it.
Your role in the bigger scheme of things
I truly believe there is a reason you are alive at this point when the big shift of consciousness is about to happen. You are also part of the collective consciousness, and you are needed so that we all can make this transition.
Everything is connected and your state of consciousness does affect not only your immediate surroundings but each individual of this planet. Numerous studies have shown the interconnectedness of things and how consciousness is not bound to a place but affects everything around. One example is the study on meditation that showed that when a small group of people meditates for peace in a given region, the rate of violence in that city statistically drops.
When you realize just how important you are, you might see everything that is unfolding in a different light. You will see that everything that is happening is the way it is supposed to be. You will understand that chaos and turmoil are a natural part of this process and that something new and beautiful is about to emerge.
This I am certain of.
Here are 6 tips on how to move away from fear to a calm and peaceful state:
Go into Nature
Even if you are currently in lockdown mode, make sure to go into nature as much as possible. Connect with her. She needs your support and you need her. Sit next to a tree and feel into the strength of the bark of the tree. Give the tree your worries and fears. You can visualize all the tension and stress to be taken from you. Give it to the tree and it will gladly help you. It will simply transfer the old and stuck energy into the Earth so it can be recycled.
Make sure you talk to your friends or family about your fears.
There is no shame in feeling afraid. It is a natural emotion and is part of being human. It only becomes an issue when you feel alone and when you have no one to turn to. So make sure to reach out to your family and friends, share with them what`s on your mind, and ask them how they are doing. I am sure they will be glad to hear from you. Speaking to someone you can trust is healing in itself, even though that person might not have all the answers.
Move your body.
Anxiety is a built-up of energy, so you need to make sure to discharge it. If you cannot go outside and exercise, simply turn on your favorite music and move your body. You will feel better soon.
Calming the mind is one of the most important things you can do to feel more peaceful and optimistic. If you are new to meditation, check out my article: „How to meditate like a monk even if you have zero experience”.
Stop watching the news
I know this is a big one for most people but this is one of the biggest energy drainers there is. The news doesn’t give you the full picture of what is really happening. It is mostly negative and keeps you trapped in a cycle of fear as it doesn’t report about all the good things that are happening. I highly suggest you turn off your TV and rather turn to a good book. Your nervous system will thank you.
Know that you can create positive change in your sphere of influence.
You don’t have to be a social media star with hundreds of thousands of followers in order to have a positive impact on the world. You simply start where you are at: with your family, neighbors and, friends. Share with them what you have learned about the global transformation to give them hope, uplift, and inspire them. Small acts of kindness do have a positive ripple effect and when you do something good for others, you naturally will feel better about yourself.
