As a pretty empathic and experienced energy-worker myself, I can acknowledge how difficult the world’s current ‘collective energies’ are at present. So to avoid ‘empathic sensory overload,’ sometimes I simply shut off the non-stop news channels to better control my own thoughts—steering my mental gyrations where I want them to go—focusing instead on higher-frequency states of mind and more peaceful aspirations than the media’s ‘perpetual fear and mass destruction’ blitz.
In other words, where I put my mental focus is a choice that I consciously make.
I’m not denying that the world’s affairs seem to be one gigantic dumpster fire right now with natural and man-created disasters, but I also know how important it is to hold your own energy field strongly and purposely higher than the continually-disruptive, fear-based collective energy field, just to maintain your own health and sanity.
So today I ran across a Lee Harris short video on how to ‘reframe’ the nastier aspects of your life as the initiatory ‘gauntlet you have to run’ to gain greater awareness and expanded consciousness—or in essence how surviving through some of the worst experiences of your entire life actually helps you EVOLVE to a more advanced state of awakening and being—it’s like an ‘initiatory’ aspect of enlightenment.
Anyway, if you are interested, here is the location for the video which might help you personally reframe your current mind-state on world affairs at present: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgLAvN6zOpo
I transcribed a few notes from it below.
“(Many in today’s world are now realizing that) their sensitivity, their empathy, their level of feeling is on the increase, and it can be very uncomfortable for people…”
Everything that’s been going on in the recent weeks and months is conspiring to HEAL you. Doesn’t mean it’s pretty right now or that you are in a pleasant part of the process, ….but when you come through one of those ‘dark night of the soul’ experiences, there is an incredible transformation occurring (within you), and we ARE DIFFERENT afterwards. So, for me, I now wouldn’t trade any of the more hellish moments of my life that at the time I would have done anything to have someone take it away, so that I didn’t have to feel it. …
So ‘Who are we becoming?’ is a consideration focus I would just like to invite you to hold in this next month or so. And more specifically: ‘Who am I becoming?’ …We are changing internally,…and we’re changing our consciousness as individuals and as a collective—where we are in the world right now is very different than anything we have been through before. … (I’m guessing Lee means this CURRENT generation has experienced because from a historical perspective, I would argue that ‘collectively’ the 1930’s-1950, were far worse and more individually- and group-transformative than our current inane madness could ever be.)
So if you find yourself in human reaction, can you just let yourself have the reaction: the sadness, the anger, the grief, whatever you need to feel? (Don’t wallow in it but DO acknowledge it—let yourself FEEL IT.) Now for sure if you feel ‘stuck’ in those emotions, then find ways to help you move them or shift them or change them; and that might be (through helpful) people, or that might be finding other tools and resources to move (those stuck emotions/energies) out, but try something if you feel chronically stuck with some (powerful) emotion,…but never lose sight that we are on an evolution journey, and one of the ‘risks’ of this time is that we ‘shut down’ and we pull back and we ‘close off’ from it (to avoid feeling the intensity of the emotion). …
It’s okay if you need to shut it all out for a short while just to preserve your sanity, but don’t let yourself close down for weeks and weeks, and months and months. (Don’t isolate yourself or hide away or pretend that you aren’t experiencing/feeling the awfulness of the world’s chaos around you, because we ALL are.)”…
In my humble opinion, YES the world is changing and WE are changing right along with it; and we shouldn’t assume that anything we ever experience will stay the same in this world for any length of time because it seldom does, whether they are pleasant or unpleasant experiences. But please also recognize that as your own ‘empathic sensitivities’ increase, which they will, that sometimes what you are feeling may not be YOUR OWN energies. You could be picking up ‘the collective’s’ anxiety and fear, or ‘the collective’s’ anger vibes.
So you need to find effective ways to stop yourself from absorbing/feeling all the energy lunacy around you; which means you must learn to refocus yourself back to where you want YOUR energy frequency to be, and where you want to focus your own thoughts and emotions—because you have the ability to choose your thought focus.
Meditation, yoga, listening to soothing music, making time for yourself, taking walks in nature, etc., are all good recentering/refocusing practices to better enhance, consolidate and protect your own energy field boundaries.
Please keep this in mind: The world is going to do whatever it is going to do, because it is undergoing a huge global energy-shift right now; and that shift will shake up political structures and entrenched institutions forcing all inhabitants of earth to reexamine, reevaluate, and rebuild their social and governing institutions to match the newer higher-frequency energy environment. It may not be an instantaneous change but it will be pivotal to how LIFE exists over the next few decades on the planet.
But what you can personally do to survive this nasty ‘reconstruction havoc’ is to let go of what you cannot control and focus instead on where you want to be during this process, and what you personally can do to help make the world around you a better place in which to live.
Lee asks “Who Are We Becoming?” then asks you to consider “Who am I becoming?” And answering THAT question is where you need to put your energies, because you are evolving into a ‘new upgraded version’ of yourself.
My advice to anyone interested in better handling this chaotic ‘collective’ uncertainty:
Let that ‘NEW YOU’ slowly emerge over time to become even stronger; filled with greater compassion and empathy toward others.
Be also aware that this NEW YOU will be far more naturally/intuitively aware of your interconnectedness to everything and everyone.
And during that mental/psychological evolution you will likely reach a stage of realization and energetic realignment where you will suddenly understand that the ‘NEW YOU’ has become even more amazing and powerful in ways you could never have previously imagined—ways where you are far more sensory perceptive and comprehensively astounding than those earlier versions of YOU could have ever dreamed for you to be.
That’s the effect that some of these higher-frequency energetic-shift changes are meant to do to us and FOR us. We are becoming higher-consciousness beings capable of true ‘self-realization’ with far less effort than was required before the new energies arrived.
So don’t FEAR the massive changes already underway. Just learn to step back, observe without judgment (and emotion), and allow the change to occur all around you.
Then you must learn to simply adapt yourself to better utilizing the new expanded awareness that you are being gifted/given. You will have new abilities—new ways to sense things—a new intuitive understanding of how LIFE unfolds for you, when you allow it to do so.
“Who are you becoming?”
That’s an easy one to answer:
You are becoming a better/higher version of yourself.
