Change is hard. Well, change can be hard or it can be smooth. Oftentimes, big changes and transformation are difficult because the terrain is bumpy.
Right now the physical three dimensional world is imbalanced. We are in transition. Much infrastructure that exists does not work like an old operating system or VHS tape. We are shifting from outdated to new structures. Sometimes modifications and revisions are needed. In other cases, complete release must occur to create space for beginnings.
An aspect of change that many struggle with most is attachment. Attachment to the current state of things - a regular schedule, routine, friend circle, communities, and income. Prior to necessary change, energy builds up like the pressure of overgrown plant roots against the sides of a pot or gas that forms when shaking up a soda can.
Many of us tend to overstay in certain scenarios. Personally, my career area of life has been a navigational tool in helping to understand the emotional body. With moon in the 10th house, my emotional body and career are intertwined. A career to me is not just a job; it moves me. When a certain career or job is not aligned but I stay in that role, balance is thrown off. Energy does not flow freely, which affects the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual body. Here’s what happens:
Mind becomes overactive, over thoughtful, obsessive. Thoughts become pollution and leak into the emotional body. Logic is off. Intuition is clouded.
Body ailments arise - tweaked neck, sore back, digestive problems, issues sleeping. Focus and meditation become difficult.
Soul fire starts to wane. Passion or desire is lost. In extreme cases, meaninglessness ensues.
These signs indicate that something is not right. Externally we appear fine - presentable with a secure home, good friends, no major health issues, stable finances, freedom to travel.
Here are more signs:
Fragmentation are your heart, mind, and will in conflict? Does your heart say, “hell no” while the mind says “I should” and your will feels forced?
Imbalanced Mind is the mind overactive, obsessive, dominant?
Imbalanced Body is the body not functioning optimally? Are there aches, pains, small injuries?
Imbalanced Soul does your inner self feel like it’s screaming, caged up, needy or neglected?
Repetitive messages or signs hearing, seeing, feeling the same things over and over? This is important. Listen. Does your car need maintenance? Do you keep seeing frayed fabric or loose strings? Ties may need to be cut or you may be holding on by a thread. Message is to let go.
Songs Stuck in Your Head? Break down the lyrics. What do they convey?
Overall our current world is not balanced. Therefore, we must nourish ourselves and open up to wholeness to balance our inner temples. We cannot rely on concrete, traffic, what people say, our jobs, our friends, or what we consume to balance us. By strengthening our inner selves (our soul fabric, keeping our bodies clear and charged) we increase our abilities to stay balanced and to thrive in the world. Again we must rely on the inside because what’s on the outside is a reflection of the inner. Change from within is what changes the world.
