Fifth Chakra-Archangel Gabriel, Five of Disks Reversed, Ten of Swords
You may turn on your TV, tune into social media, or read the news and think the world is falling apart right now. It can get pretty dark and discouraging out there. It feels like everything we’ve known is coming undone—and it is. This come-apart facilitates our ability to shrug off of the shackles that have bound us to the old ways. In an attempt to stabilize, it can leave us scrambling to try and hold on to what is familiar. However, we need to start accepting that we are actually in a transition period, awkwardly winding up a past cycle so we can start a new one. Think of it like the “junior high years” for the planet: you don’t really know who you are yet, but you know you’re changing and growing up and the old you doesn’t fit anymore.
While the world is fervently trying to cut away what is dead and not working, you may be trying to figure out how to bring about positive change in the new space being created. This week, Spirit asks us to focus on how we express ourselves, as part of that positive change. This doesn’t mean vomiting your opinions and emotions at everyone who will listen. It’s about tapping into that awesome fifth chakra energy and really working on speaking your Truth in a way that is helpful. How do we do that?
We need to stop looking externally for the answers. When we incarnated, we forgot just about everything. Because of this, we reach outside of ourselves looking for what's missing when the answers for healing and growth are actually inside of us. So, while we would love and go out and change the world through sheer willpower, our strength lies in our ability to understand what’s going on inside of ourselves(self-truth) and then figure how to communicate that to the world around us(self-expression).
Why work on yourself to change the world? We forget that in each of us is a little piece of Heaven or Source. This piece connects us all energetically. What we say, what we do, what we think affects everyone, everywhere. Now more than ever, it’s really important to be living and expressing ourselves from our heart space—not our head space. We need to come from a place of compassion and empathy, for not only others, but ourselves, as well. How we treat ourselves spreads to how we treat others.
Where do you even begin? It’s time to release all those ideas and words that are building up inside you. It’s time to tap into your heart space and let that flow on to paper, canvas, photo, song, dance. It’s time to create and let that bit of heaven shine through for all the world to see.
Take time this week to express yourself creatively. Journal or paint or sing—just create from the heart. It doesn’t have to be good, it just has to be you. Set the ego aside for a few hours and let your Truth shine through. Share what you have created with others. The act of sharing actually helps you understand yourself more deeply and manifest those ideas in physical reality.
The world needs your thoughts and ideas right now. Don’t hide and let old fears stand in your way. Art and expression have always been key to sharing new ideas with each other and for understanding another person's point of view. Now more than ever do we need that understanding. Do your bit and who knows maybe you will inspire someone else to do theirs.
