There is so much I want to write about so this could read a bit haphazard. I’ll start with the coming Winter Solstice. The Winter Solstice is something I really welcome. I don’t do well with dark days and really cloudy days either. If the sun us shining I feel so much better. So in a few days we have the Winter Solstice when the light returns. Although it take s couple of week before you really notice it. For me it is also a time of looking forward to the coming year. I feel hopeful that people will awaken to what is really going on and find their true selves.
My next words are about fear. Politicians and the press are ramping up fear by using very emotive words. So what are people afraid of? Are they afraid of being ill or are they afraid of dying because they are ill? I suppose it depends on what you believe about dying and life after death. From personal experience I know that there is life after death. I also believe in reincarnation so death does not frighten me at all. I look forward to meeting my loved ones who have already passed.
So what about changes in our world? Change is normal but currently we are having many changes following each other rapidly. Staying positive and standing in your own truth is important now. As I wrote last week, let your light shine out brightly. Look after your health too. Listen to what your body tells you. Research alternative ways of dealing with aches and pains. Scientists do not always tell the truth. Money changes truths into untruths. Read alternative views about health and what to use, find what resonates with you. Trust your Higher Self and stay strong turning negativity into positivity. There will be a better world but it will take time for the old one to crumble completely.
In our current world, there is a lot of darkness, events happening which are not good for us or our planet, for example. If you work with martial arts of healing energies you will most probably know how to surround yourself with light. We all have a spark of light within us and learning to use it is quite easy. Filling yourself with light is easy to do too. If you are a druid you will most likely know how to do this.
Sit quietly or lie down and imagine energy, light energy coming up through your feet from the earth. Let it fill each toe and all of your feet and then imagine the light energy moving up through your legs and into your lower body. As it moves up through your body let the light energy fill your arms as well right down to your fingertips. Then let the light energy rise into your head until you are totally filled with light. Let the light radiate our from your body and shine brightly. You can bring light in from the sky too doing the same and you can use both ways together. There are lots of other ways to bring in the light to your body so do explore this.
People are drawn to the light like moths to a flame so know that you will attract others to you. They may need help or they might want to not help so be careful who you let into your light. Mostly it will be those needing help and/or reassurance that the world is not as it seems. If enough of us shine out brightly then when there is enough of us, that is, more than those in the darkness then our world will change. At the moment we are keeping a lot of the darkness away or changing it into light. Stand out with your light. You could be the lighthouse for someone in great need.
Over the centuries, many things have changed. However wars and unrest still continue. Pandemics and outbreaks of nasty diseases also come back again and again. All of these things bring lessons for us to learn. One example that sticks in my mind was the cholera epidemic in the 1800s. It was discovered that water was to blame and contaminated wells so a lot changed with the water supply so it became safer. This was one case where a lesson was learned.
I look around me at the lives of people all over the world. There are far too many living in poverty because of war or civil unrest and a lack of basic amenities such as water. Then there are the others who live in large mansions and have everything they need and more but who do not often seem to see what goes on around them.
Over the last couple of years we have learned that washing our hands is good for us. It is easy to do this in our world but what of those in countries where water is scarce? How do they keep their hands and bodies clean? The richer countries also seem to get the best medications while the poorer ones have to do without and consequently become ill and even die.
I have always felt that the current situation is here to give us a lesson. We need to look at how we live. We need to go back to the old ways of washing and cleaning. They worked and kept us safe during the war and other difficult times. We have let ourselves become complacent about germs and diseases and think that anti bacterial wipes are best but these stop us from becoming immune to nasty stuff. As a child we played in the dirt making mud pies. It did not harm us. The children of today do not do this, they are glued to their phones and play stations.
But the situation continues as nobody seems to have learned any lessons. They understand that the world must change but are not prepared to change themselves and the way they live. As the permafrost melts more ancient germs will be released into the atmosphere. Are you ready for these? How is your immune system doing?
War makes people homeless and then we have a refugee crisis. Why are we still going to war? What do we think it will achieve? Do we not care about anyone else? And so it goes on and on and we never seem to learn any lessons and change our ways.
