For a couple of weeks, there was a commercial on tv that simply said Chaos is coming and it was a little alarming to see a message like that on tv. It turns out that it was simply an ad for a new tv show called Chaos, but I found it to be quite synchronistic with the state of world right now.
As I do every night before turning out the lights, I sat on the side of my bed talking to God about the day and about everything going on in the world. I told him/her that it was easy to see why people think the world is coming to an end because there’s so much scary stuff going on and once again, into my head came the words, “the old ways need to break down in order to create a new world” and I thought about Egypt and Libya.
My thought was does it have to be war? Do they have to shoot and kill each other and the thought that came in is that this is the only way they know how to resolve these issues. Peace talks don’t work when people are determined to come from their ego and have their way be the only way. They will learn the hard way to surrender that ego and look at each situation from a higher perspective.”
I wonder how many lifetimes that’s going to take. You’d think by now that we would know bettter than to choose war as a solution, but ego is a strong motivator to win an argument.
What bothers me the most is all the people living in fear and with Uranus in Aries, that fear will be around for awhile. If you’d like to know more about that, my astrologer friend Nancy J. wrote a great piece on it and here’s the link: http://www.vivainstitute.com/2011/03/introducing-astrologer-nancy-j/
In a couple of weeks, I’m going down to North Carolina for a weekend to talk to a group of young people about the soul’s journey and living by our inner voice. I wish I could get the message out to all the young people about that divine voice within them. It’s the absolute best tool we have for getting through our life with as little fear as possible and receiving the daily guidance that we need.
As far as the chaos, it’ll be around for awhile. We are in the process of breaking down the systems that no longer work in the kind of world we want and some of the systems are doing everything they can to hold on to the old ways. Look at the lessons coming out of Japan.
A few months ago I did a reading for a lady who was going through a very tough time. The guides told her to go to a very tall hotel and look out the window. Relax, get extra sleep, and look at life from a different perspective.
When I did a follow up reading for her the other day, she told me she never went to the hotel and when we were done, II was thinking about the signifigance of the hotel and if it made a diffference in the way things turned out for her.
Into my head came the words “it was an invitation to have her look at life through God’s eyes and not the limited perspective of her own eyes.” That the hotel was symbolic of looking at her chaos from a spiritual perspective and not a limited human perspective.
It’s great advice for all of us. Look at all the chaos from a higher perspective.
And if you can’t, ask the Universe to show you the purpose of all this chaos.
and pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze, listen to that still small voice inside.
It will always caution you when you are about to step into scary, chaotic, situations.
In my book My Big Book of Healing, one of the many solutions I’ve got listed for getting through life on this planet is to come up with a list of people and places that you feel safe being with or at. Then when you feel scared, close your eyes to shut out the world, take a few deep relaxing breaths and imagine yourself with that person or in that place. You’d be surprised how much lower your blood pressure gets when you can visualize that perfect setting with that safe person. It’s really cool.
Remember, we’re not victims. We’re here to learn from every one of these doggone challenges. Life can truly suck but if we can look at it from that higher perspective, we become amazing people as a result.
