I’m back! Please forgive my delay in posts July was a whirlwind of a month with the launch of my first novel, ‘Zoe Evans’ Possible Worlds the Crystal,’ and with all of the hard work I had been pouring in getting it ready for the publishers for publication I realised I needed a long break. I think we often forget that overkill is not always the best remedy and at some point it catches up with you and the brain says “Stop! I need a break.”
Alas, I am recuperating which is what I want to discuss in this latest post. This summer has been filled with some very emotional energy and it is still currently with us and will be as we move through the month of August. As 2010 crept in at the beginning of the year I knew this was going to be a dramatic year for many of us. For me a novel I wrote almost nine years ago was going to be published this year which was exciting but also exhausting. So many of us are experiencing rapid change in our lives now. I have never been a lucky person in life and things do not come easily to me. I’ve always had to work very hard but now for many of us who have not had it easy we are realising that we have choices in life and we can create our own luck.
The lunar eclispe on the 26th June and the solar eclipse on the 11th July 2010 surely kicked up alot of stuff for many of us and we have now whether conciously or not embraced the fact that life is going to change whether we like it or not. The energies that these eclipses kicked up have been very intense and completely tiring. Eclipses are always emotional but I found the eclipses this summer to be very cathartic. I am an Earth sensitive. So I feel very in tune with any new energies that hit our atmososphere and enter into our bodies. At the end of June I cried it seemed all day for a week as the eclipse approached. My crown chakra buzzed and felt tense as the energies hit my body. I felt exhausted and was crying constantly. I was not depressed but the sadness was deep. I was releasing although I was not clear exactly what I was releasing. Sometimes when new energies hit the Earth it has this effect on us and I certainly was feeling the new albeit in a strange way. But, I am sure others had similar experiences and I feel tears have been very dominant this summer. 2010 has been a very emotional year so far. I would term it as the year of emotion. The dramatic earthquakes that have hit Haiti, Chile, China and other places have been very draining energetically. Couple this with the ash cloud in the early spring in Europe and the oil spill, or should I say ‘catastrophe’ in the Gulf it is safe to say that world events have certainly shaken many of us up. The solar eclipse on the 11th July certainly did bring fresh new positive energy in. There was a lightness in the air for the first couple of weeks of July and I myself felt very uplifted for a short while in comparison to the moodiness I had to fight at the end of June.
The dreaded and much talked about Cardinal Climax, Cardinal Cross came into fruition on the 6th August changing the energy once again. I found myself feeling angry and low in energy from mid July and again the tears came back. The energy that is currently around us reminds me of being in a ‘void’ period. There is potential for growth but everything is delayed. I have a sneaky feeling it is the quiet before the storm and I’m sure October will be an action packed month. All of this energy is building towards something and as we have seen in the first half of 2010 this is not going to be a quiet year.
So in the meantime I have been laying low and keeping my distance from others. Crying, releasing accepting the restrictions that are around and waiting for the clearing and infusion of new energy to take hold and deliver the news it has to bring.
So if you feel like releasing tears during these times know you are not alone. There is an unspoken malaise in the air, as if we are in a holding pattern. Take a breath and as Depeche Mode say, “Enjoy the silence.”
Until next time.
