We are undergoing the collective expression of the shadow self

The pandemic, protests, violence and chaos: how do you make sense of these challenging times? Indeed, it is a brave new world. Yet, what seems like the end is actually the beginning of something brand new. Humanity is collectively moving through an important phase of the ascension process: everything that was once hidden is coming to the surface for expression, healing and eventual integration so that we can return to our original vibration of love.

In shadow work, we release everything that has been repressed within the psyche to reach a greater level of healing through integration.  What is happening in the outside world—the pandemic, protests, violence, exposure of longstanding service-to-self behaviors like the systemic and long-silenced abuse—is the same action, only on a grand scale, moving outward in a great global reveal of the collective psyche. Like building a new home, everything in the old structure that does not align with the new vision must first be demolished. We are in the demolition phase in the project of building the New Earth.

How are you managing your energy during this time of unrest? Though you may sense there is a growing darkness being expressed “out there”, nothing is in fact outside of you. That perceived darkness is within us all. Each individual plays a role in this deliberate dance. The chaos you see on the news is you. The violence in the streets is you. You are not separate, higher than, different than or better than those expressions. You are them, because we are ALL ONE. Choosing to judge or criticize those who are playing the role of revealing the shadow aspect is a choice to remain in separation consciousness. You don’t need to join in, advocate or identify with what is happening; however, you can simply accept, allow, and feel compassion in your heart, recognizing how those expressions are part of All That Is. You can be a force of LIVING LOVE no matter what transpires around you or within you.

When the truth of what has been happening behind the curtain bubbles up and out, it can be difficult to lovingly embrace those who have inflicted abuse in the name of greed, power, control and other service-to-self expressions rooted in separation. Arriving at these revelations can feel confusing, frustrating and disenchanting, rocking the very foundation of what we trusted to shape reality.You may even feel deceived or betrayed with the realization that everything you thought to be true about who you are as a human being and how the world works, has been false. Become aware of and feel those feelings, whatever they may be. Allow the negativity to move through with loving acceptance.

Once you begin to piece together your ultimate truth as a sovereign, multidimensional human being, you begin to see external upsets from the lens of oneness. You can choose a higher, wider perspective—from the top of the mountain lit by the sun instead of down in the shadows of the valleys below. Every positive thought, feeling, intention and visualization contributes to manifesting New Earth. You can send love, compassion and gratitude from your heart to service-to-self energies and beings. Why? Because they are playing a critical role: without those forces, we wouldn’t have the contrast of polarity to serve as a departure point for rising up together. There is no need for judgement. Hold steady as a force of LIVING LOVE. Choose gratitude: these challenging expressions are humanity’s wake-up call, unifying us, and manifesting a collective ascension that will be more magnificent than anything we’ve ever known.
