Are you feeling all the vibrational shifting going on? I know I am! Energetically, emotionally, and physically, it can be a pretty uncomfortable experience. Since I know I’m not alone in this (I’ve been hearing the same story from so many others), I thought we could all use some additional suggestions on receiving grace during this transformation. After all, I firmly believe that for every challenge there is a solution. I’m ready to receive grace with this instead of suffering. How about you?
I asked for some Divine guidance on this topic. Turtles seem to be the theme…all different sizes and types. Let’s take a look at what turtles represent metaphorically…
From Native American Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams and David Carson:
“In Native American teachings, Turtle is the oldest symbol for planet Earth. It is the personification of goddess energy, and the eternal Mother from which our lives evolve. We are born of the womb of Earth, and to her soil our bodies will return. In honoring the Earth, we are asked by Turtle to be mindful of the cycle of give and take, to give back to the Mother as she has given to us. Turtle has a shell which is similar to the protection of the Earth has employed for centuries as her body has been defiled. Mother Earth’s protection has come in the form of Earth changes, new plant growth, the creation of new land masses by volcanoes, and climate alterations. Like Turtle, you also have shields that protect you from hurt, envy, jealousy, and the unconsciousness of others. Turtle teaches you, through its habit patterns, how to use protection. If you are bothered by the actions or words of others, it is time to go inside yourself and honor your feelings. If you are attacked, it is time to give a warning snap.”
Okay, so let’s get into the practical application of this. I feel very strongly the “protection” described above would help tremendously with the energetic and emotional challenges of our time. So how do we activate this protection beyond honoring our feelings and speaking up when we need to?
I’m hearing we need to DEMAND it. Insist that we continuously have the protection we need to stay in a state of joy and well-being while we are on Earth. This isn’t about asking. It is about insisting that we will no longer tolerate being immersed in lower vibrating energies…insisting that we WILL be comfortable at all times and in all situations WITHOUT EXCEPTION. Our vibration needs to be high no matter what is going on around us.
This month, a few of the Sensitive Person Mentoring Clubs will be reaching the third chakra portion of the program. I am realizing how fitting this is with this topic. The Universe is on our side, but sometimes our fear keeps us from the good that the Universe wants for us. That’s why this has to be something that you commit to at a deep and guttural level. Feel it in your third chakra when you make it clear that you will no longer tolerate anything less than energetic comfort. We need to leave no room for wavering on this. No exceptions, means no exceptions.
When I first started doing readings for people, I had a session with a young man who was suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome, severe anxiety, and depression. I started the session and became so overwhelmed by what he was feeling that I was barely able to complete my job. I remember walking afterwards and having a very frank conversation with God. I made it clear and I meant it….this wasn’t just words…that I would no longer do this work if I could not do it with comfort and safety. I asked for a “spiritual epidural” to allow me to know what I needed to while working with someone without experiencing it as if it were my own. It worked. Why? Because I absolutely would accept nothing less.
I realized while writing this that it was time to make the same demand for my life outside of the coaching. What used to be tolerable is no longer. I did this earlier in the week, and it worked! Here’s a simple prayer you can use to make this change in your own life.
Begin with breathing deeply and slowly. Imagine yourself somewhere peaceful. Let yourself relax until you feel safe and centered. Ask for your Divine support team to be with you. Ask them to be present as you clearly set forth your intentions for yourself. Now, spend a moment really feeling the strength of your will. Feel your commitment to your own well-being and your intolerance for anything less than peace within. Feel the protective instinct that you have for your love ones rise forth for yourself. KNOW that you will protect and love yourself no matter what. Next, demand the protection you need. Commit yourself, knowing that if the protection cannot be provided in the situation you are in, that you will leave that situation. There can be no compromise. Either you are safe, comfortable, and able to function or you will remove yourself from it. Ask that this commitment be sealed in the Universe and that Spirit make it so.
Give it a try! Hang in there!
