Time of Fire, Time of Action! – March 2017
There’s a lot of fire energy in the world right now, which is another way of saying there are big changes and movements happening.
It also means that Now is the time to take action!
If we have been experiencing stagnancy, or felt like hibernating a bit, the fiery energies accessible to us at this time will help get things moving again.
For those who identify with being an empath, who are highly sensitive and aware of others’ energies, fiery energy can feel overwhelming at times.
Spending time in Nature, making sure we are well hydrated, and having a daily spiritual practice that helps to ground us, will help pacify any sense of overwhelm.
Here are some of the ways that fire energy can show up in our lives:
• Heightened sexual desire
If you have been noticing these energies a bit more than usual, now you know why!
The energies listed above are an indicator that things are moving within us and all around us.
When given a healthy outlet, they serve as a vehicle that transports us to the kind of reality we truly desire.
These fiery energies support us in anchoring the energy of outer action. They can also help us feel more alive.
Now is the perfect time to begin new projects, make big decisions, travel, move, start a new relationship, invest, find a new hobby, or take a course to learn something new.
Love as a Daily Path
As these fiery energies heat up, they will powerfully support us in choosing love.
Love allows us to see the perfection in everything. It allows us to see beyond the illusions of separation.
Choosing love as our daily path is a powerful practice. Some days it can be hard to choose love, so let’s remember to be gentle with ourselves along the way.
We were raised in a world dominated by left-brain thought, which tends to look down upon the abilities of the heart. Yet we can experience more love by choosing to think less and feel more.
It’s important to understand that emotions are not the same as intuitive feelings. Emotions are mind-based reactions that judge something as being either good or bad.
Intuitive feelings are not about judgment. They are about your high heart resonating with something as being true for you, or not. In other words, your heart responds by either contracting or expanding.
We have also been taught that action is preferable to feeling and intuition. And yet, love is less about doing, and more about Being.
As we step into that state of Being that is love—living from the heart, and suspending all judgment—the Universe is always there for us, supporting us along the way.
Because when we choose to live in love, the Universe arranges everything in our outer world so that we can experience even more love.
The more we become aware of these opportunities and move into them, the easier it becomes to anchor love into our reality as a way of life.
It is important to realize that though we were taught otherwise, real love does not have any conditions placed around it. It also does not indicate weakness.
It is time to become aware of belief systems that are simply mind-based structures that distract us. They move us away from our true nature, which is based on real love. A love that does not judge, and does not cause us or another pain or hardship. A love that does not require us to give up or hide some part of ourselves.
True love is an unwavering frequency that flows through all of life. Choosing to be and embody love means that we immediately align with this constant flow.
In that moment, all of the resistance we have to life fades away, so that everything in our lives flows much more easily.
Our Higher Self: The Power of Love
Because we have so many misconceptions about what “power” really is, many of us have hesitated to reclaim our own innate power. We tend to associate it with misused power, the kind that is corrupt or controlling.
An ego-based use of power is usually a sort of misdirected creativity—a false form the mind created as a result of losing connection to its Higher Self.
It’s a form of self-protection that comes from forgetting that we don’t need to be controlling outwardly. We are always safe and provided for, on a higher level.
But in this new and exciting era we are now in, we are collectively remembering the truth of how powerful our Higher Selves really are.
This is a powerful awakening, and one that is allowing us to fully reclaim our true and authentic power, which is interested purely in serving our and everyone’s higher good.
In this time when so many are ascending into the fifth dimension, we are rising out of the lower dimension of duality, judgment, and narrow-mindedness.
This is freeing us to move out of the illusions of the false outer power we have been shown for so long, and into the true power of our real inner nature—and that is based on the power of love.
Releasing the Victim Role
If there was ever a time to release the victim archetypes that we as human beings have identified with for so long, it is now.
We can of course honor these archetypes for working to keep us safe and protected for thousands of years. As our minds looked out on a dangerous world, they concentrated purely on survival.
But we now know that a world built mainly upon the idea of survival is not a world that is in alignment with who we are at our core: a Divine Being, carrying Love as our highest purpose.
As Divine Love Beings, we are here to do far more than survive. We now seek to thrive, and to love ourselves and the world around us, affirming that we are constantly safe and protected, even though our survival-based minds may try to tell us otherwise.
So now, as we release the victim role, we can joyfully welcome in our Higher Self.
Releasing victim consciousness means taking on board several empowering ideas, even if they seem to go against the grain at times.
The first step is to accept every person, every experience, and every outer situation that comes to us, without trying to change it.
We don’t have to agree with everything and everyone we meet. We just need to release the need to let outer conditions—and our reactions to them—define who we are. Through acceptance, we also release the need to dwell on the past and what may have been.
The second powerful step toward releasing victim consciousness is to release the need to blame.
We tend to feel the need to blame when something goes wrong, because we have been taught that there is always something or someone outside of ourselves who is right/wrong or good/bad—someone or something else that is responsible for our experiences.
We are at a place now where we know that this cannot be true. And that blaming others always leads us away from the peace of our Higher Self.
This is why the Dalai Lama has said, “When you think everything is someone else’s fault, you will suffer a lot. When you realize that everything springs only from yourself, you will learn both peace and joy.”
We know now that we are the Creators of all of our experiences.
We can release the need to judge simply by realizing that as we operate from our Higher Selves, we acknowledge ourselves as Creator of all we are and all we experience.
When we act or feel as our Higher Selves, we do only what feels to be in alignment with our high heart, releasing what doesn’t.
Blaming ourselves or others holds us back from connecting with our Highest, most Divine Self.
The third step to releasing the victim role is to take full responsibility for our lives and well-being.
The victim mindset won’t necessarily approve of this new behavior. It may well resist when it hears that we are responsible for our lives and well-being.
It senses that it is losing its job. And it can no longer take comfort in separating itself, supported by the illusion that whatever we need has to come to us from outside ourselves.
It is natural to feel that resistance. But as we take responsibility for our lives and our well-being, we actively move out of victim consciousness, and into Creator consciousness.
It is in our Creator consciousness that we are able to move mountains. At that moment, when we are reclaiming our true inner power, we are able to manifest from the most authentic and powerful aspect of ourselves.
Taking these three steps actively supports our transition from victim consciousness to Creator consciousness.
As we move forward in Creator Consciousness, we remember that at our core, we have always been Love itself.
That is what’s happening right now.
We are remembering that we are all family. And the illusions of separation through race, gender, roles, job titles, class systems, structures, religions, and sexual orientations, are dissolving and fading away.
Love is making a huge comeback in the consciousness of humanity.
Love has always been here, but now, it will be center stage.
