As you settle deeper and deeper into your universal nature, you become increasingly aware of various qualities flowing through the collective.
They arise in awareness as qualities like emotions or tendencies. Unlike our own emotions, they’re more generic and moving through the environment.
We can feel a buildup of tendencies, then a release, suggesting an event has taken place. This could be something that shows up in our experience, on the news, or is only a more subtle shift or an event we’re unaware of.
Or we feel an emotion moving through. This can be anything. For example, during the Vancouver Olympics, there was a palpable joy and sense of celebration in the air for the duration. Troublemakers tried to start a riot but failed, in a place where a riot had happened before.
More commonly, we’ll notice a wave of fear, or anxiety, anger, or other emotion seeking resolution. Feelings we have some history with will tend to be more prominent, partly because of affinity and partly because we’ll have a learned facility for processing them.
This can also be a great time to process our own related stuff. As we move past that, we can help process what’s arising in the collective.
There are many things that may drive such waves, including the cycles of time, strong experiences in the collective, karma, and so on.
How we personally experience this process depends on how our makeup relates to and responds to the above.
Many people live in resistance to hunks of their experience. They are more prone to feel restless, anxious, or a little paranoid about subtle shifts, just outside their awareness. Other people and events get blamed. They don’t process what’s arising but resist it yet again.
But with a little energy awareness and healing skills, we can help shift the tide in our own life and that of the whole.
