It’s hard to get a feel for the energy this month through all the chaos and hullabaloo around the U.S. elections. But now more than ever, it’s important to stay centered so…let’s push on on.
The first part of the month is cloaked in confusion. Everyone wondering about “outcomes.” What will happen? Who will be elected? What will happen if my candidate doesn’t get elected? There’s so much that seems to be riding on this election – for everyone.
But let’s take a step back. What happens now feels like it will make a huge difference, but in the larger picture, all roads lead to the same place. One way or another, we, as human beings need to get it together – and soon! Our unconscious approach to occupying this planet is in a countdown to disaster.
It’s not about who leads politically. That system is moving too slowly, too bogged down in red tape. The changes required now are an inside job from each of us. And that’s the good news. The outcome is in our hands. The more conscious we are, the more clarity there is in the world. How we behave, the choices we make personally, how we connect with one another…this is what will make the difference.
Not succumbing to fear is key now. This month’s energy helps us stand strong and have courage. And it couldn’t be more timely.
Here are a few steps to help you stay centered and strong:
- You can easily tap into a larger pool of strength and clarity simply by closing your eyes. Everything you need is within you. All you have to do is listen. When you feel overwhelmed, take a minute, close your eyes, let the dust settle, then feel the calm. Out of the peace comes wisdom.
- When it seems you can’t hear one more bit of bad news, draw strength from this: Light is permeating the shadows. Dark, unconscious, unacceptable behaviors are being seen for what they are. As ugly as things may look, the truth is that it takes light to expose the shadow. We’re seeing a lot of shadow so there must be a lot more light out there. Stay with the light.
- One night I was standing at my window watching a rare Los Angeles storm…thunderous bolts of lightning lighting up the sky, wind blowing the trees around. The thought struck me: “Something much more powerful than me is at play here.” To my surprise, I felt relief wash over me. I’m not responsible for I find it helps to remember there are larger cycles at play. This planet is a living system of which we are only a part – and our politics an even smaller part. We are moving within something more powerful and better organized. Let’s try and move in sync with it.
This month, expect to have a lot thrown at you. Luckily, strength and courage abound. The mantra for November is: I’m stronger than I think. And it’s true!
