This is very timely…
Confusion is the first stage of Growth.
As Saturn Wanes toward Neptune over the next several years, we need to expect a Breakdown in the Definition (Saturn) of our Cultures (Neptune) that will require (Saturn) us all to shift our primary Perspective away from Matter and toward Spirit (Neptune).
Someone on the BBC referred to Britain as being divided into two countries, Leavia and Remainia. It’s amazing how much Fear-based propaganda is being thrown at Leavia – which I guess shouldn’t be surprising, since Remainia was a project of the Corporate Elites and their Fellow Travelers. London was all Remainia – London is Britain’s “Wall Street.” When do we get NAFTexit?
The Future hasn’t been Co-Created yet. Our corner of it will be influenced greatly by what we PIAVA – including all those Unconscious and Semi-Conscious PIAVAs that we put out there under the guise of Anxiety. Though it should help to Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade those, and replace them as quickly as we can with PIAVAs for What We Do Want for ourself and for our role in the World.
“My power is over myself, is over how I learn to master myself. Not about how I suppress my emotions but, more perhaps, about how I can work with these powerful energies. CONSCIOUSLY.”
Yes, Power With ourself, not Power Over. The difference is subtle and Powerful, critical for Co-Creating a desirable Future, and well described by Starhawk’s amazing and Life-Changing book Truth or Dare.
Empathy with Self is fundamental. “You poor Sweetheart, you’re feeling uncomfortable Emotions, aren’t you. I Wonder what it would be like to Embrace them, to Locate them in my Body and put all of my Attention there, Lovingly and Gently.” My own Response to doing this – when I remember to do it (Ay, there’s the rub, eh?!?), is a feeling of Ecstasy, though not always right away. Maybe I can PIAVA to remember more often.
“It’s about finding ways to keep yourself centered so nothing (am I deluding myself?!) can throw you off balance. Nothing!
Alas, we do need to be Vulnerable, and Embrace Confusion for itself, without trying to Change it. Resistance to Vulnerability and Confusion is a serious Growth-preventing Limiting Belief. Maybe we can resolve the apparent Contradiction by counting Both “Centered” And “Uncentered” as two distinct Emotions, and PIAVAing “how to work with these powerful energies Consciously” so we can build new Patterns that will allow us to Embrace them both automatically, before they throw us off Balance enough that we can’t Recover our Grounding in a short time.
“Feeling fearful or anxious won’t make any situation better.”
No, but we do need to Embrace our Fear as a valid Emotion (and Tap it out when it Feels Overwhelming – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4 ). And Learn to quickly recognize Anxiety as mental noise that keeps us from Feeling uncomfortable Emotions, so we can get right to work Learning how to Lovingly and Gently Embrace those Emotions, Rapidly and Completely.
