Tools for Feeling Overwhelmed

I woke up yesterday morning feeling the pain of the world! It took me a few minutes to figure out what I was experiencing. I haven’t felt that since 2003 at the beginning of the Iraq War when I experienced it quite often and had to learn how to deal with it. This is even worse_the fear and disbelief we are all feeling is overwhelming at times. How could this be happening to our country and to our fellow travelers on this planet, here to raise our consciousness and the consciousness of the world?

Well, it’s a part of the journey. Some are saying a Trump presidency was inevitable to mobilize us into seeing the truth and corruption in our world and standing in our power to take back our planet; perhaps that’s true. But there is an element of shock that so much could happen in the space of a week’s time as we listen to Trump’s “executive actions” No time for denial or delay of action; just time to take action. I could say more about all the particulars, but you can find that online and on cable T.V. The wind is at our backs! People are demonstrating all over the world with strong conviction and will probably need to for a long period of time. What I would like to focus on is how to stay grounded, feeling empowered, and handling feelings of overwhelm.

If we go back to Metaphysics 101, we will remember that the lower consciousness of the planet thrives on the energy of fear and anger. These feelings “feed” it, so it strives to provoke these feelings and to create division between groups of people. If you connect to the feelings of the world, which is bound to happen from time to time since we’re all connected, especially if you’re on a spiritual path, it can seem to come out of nowhere and be overwhelming. The task is to learn to hold a larger space of energy as a container for those feelings_ the Transpersonal Witness. This “container”, as its name suggests, is transpersonal rather than personal. It allows us to “witness” these collective feelings so that we can transform them rather than feel them personally and be overwhelmed by them.

Within Unity consciousness, which is the level of consciousness we are integrating now on the earth plane, we recognize that we are all connected and we find love, compassion and caring for the good of the whole. From that place, actions are taken not just for our own desires, but for the what will serve the whole e.g.. other people, other countries etc.

If you would like to learn how to connect to this level of consciousness and utilize it, call me for a personal session or attend one of my seminars. See my website for more information.

If there ever was a time to “hold the light” for the planet it is now. Here’s a quote from my previously published book Kicking and Screaming to Enlightenment, a Journey to the Real Self. ~ Blessings, Mary
