Living through Changing Times as a Mechanism of Creation
By Deb SchnittaAs the world seems to spin in ways that the mind tries to fathom, it can be hard for a personality that desires for things to be the same. Old institutions that seemed to be there forever now are gone, leaving questions in many minds.
But more importantly, these changes that may not even be in your personal daily sphere, impact the larger fabric of humanity. Adding a wave of fear, of uncertainty and even survival in their wake, change can elicit unconscious reactions of constriction. Different from action steps of changing your spending habits, or modifying plans, these places of constriction aid in keeping the personality entrenched in the past.
So what’s a person to do, amidst a sea of change that is brought about by the actions of others?
Since all of life is a laboratory to explore the presence of spirit, then these times are indeed an accelerated opportunity. Flexibility of mind and emotions are key to not feeling distraught. And remembering that if you do feel shaken, that having an emotional response is not wrong. It does not mean you are not spiritual enough, it simply means you had an emotional response. What you do next, in the moments that follow this initial response dictate whether you will unconsciously join the sea of fear and reactivity or whether you will take a breath and find expansion. Yes, even in the midst of turmoil there is expansion.
Change happens from the inside out. As spiritual beings we know this place of orientation. But when change seems to happen from outside of us, it can rock our foundation. Righting ourselves with ease is the expression of our spiritual training. Do we remain neutral while others share their own stories of fear? Or do we join them, reaching into our own recesses of unexpressed fear? Where do we choose to resonate?
It is when we get larger than our individual selves, to the constructs of our Souls, that we see the change around us as a series of flows. And as a series of flows life is nothing more than patterns of movement and possibilities. Things that have been out of balance simply right. Areas of greed bring down entire financial structures and we, as Souls, see this as life coming back to balance. Not from a place of sugar coating the loss of a 401K or a job, but from true understanding that the Universal flows are larger than our personal flows. They intersect, and as we choose clarity, integrity and balance, we are drawn to what is next, what serves our highest purpose and learning.
Maybe in the process we learn about our own patterns of unconsciousness, where we, for instance have been taking care of others financially, or not attending to our own needs. Where does this one strand of consciousness flow? Does it exist simply in one area of our life, or is it, like the recent financial implosions so interrelated that a forensic expert couldn’t identify all the connections?
Each time we pause in a moment of reaction and choose expansion, we disconnect from the unconscious habits of constriction. We exercise our ability to choose ease, until this now becomes the new normal. What do you want your new normal to be? And once you hear its voice, what steps are needed, the actions of your daily life, to mirror this new normal with the choices you make?
Each time you exercise your capacity to create, you add this proactive energy to the larger fabric of humanity. It can be easy to forget the impact you have, as an evolving spiritual being, upon the lives of those you may never meet. To the mind, it may simply look like one simple choice of expansion in a sea of change.
To enhance your capacity to open and create, we suggest Receiving the Energy of Connection.
