― Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose
Last night I dreamed I was speeding down the highway. It was dark and I realized my headlights were off. No matter what I did I couldn't turn them on so I pulled off to the side of the road to assess and remedy the situation.
In a way that can only happen in dreams, I had to go under the dashboard, inside the car to access a special switch. Once I found this special switch and figured out how to turn it on, the headlights glowed. Because it was a soft luminous glow, I put on the high beams to see if they would provide more light. A light unlike anything I have ever seen before beamed out of my headlights. Unlike regular high beams, these didn't blind those who saw them from the outside and they guided me, the driver.
For me, the message from my dream was clear...the answers I seek do not come from outside, they come from within. I have to look deep inside myself to find myself and to find Spirit.
Globally, a shift is happening. There is a new and better planetary energy upon us. You may be thinking "no way Jose, things are chaotic and crazy, people are losing their damn minds". To which I would reply, exactly! The old energy on the planet was heavy and dark; the veil dense. It kept things stagnant. Change was slow to happen. People chugged along in the same fashion they have throughout history.
During this transition into the new planetary energy, the dark stuff will clear away, but it has to rise to the surface first. Right now there seems to be such a division in this country and perhaps across the planet. It's always been there; we just didn't necessarily want to see it. We resisted looking at it to avoid being uncomfortable.
Surely you've noticed this, things are different. People are waking up and turning on their lights. And where there is light, the dark cannot survive. By dark, I mostly mean fear.
With this change in energy, things that have remained hidden for years are surfacing because darkness can't hide when the lights are on. And make no mistake about it, people are waking up, their lights are turning on. People are rising up, speaking out, finding their own voices.
Liken it to a walk in the woods. There are creepy crawlies under every rock and critters everywhere, but we don't think about those things as we trod down our path, we simply enjoy what we can see and feel. But when you turn over the rock and let some light in you see what's there, what's always been there hiding in the dark. It's no different with people. Some are racist, xenophobic, homophobic, misogynistic assholes. They always have been; they were just hiding under rocks. With the shift, the truth comes out. We can see people as they really are.
Change is happening. We can either hang on with all our might to the old ways, or we can let go and ride the waves into the new energy.
We can either resist it or embrace it. Just keep in mind “that which we resist, persists”. (More on that in an upcoming blog). Let go of fear...love and light always win in the end.
The future is bright. Peace and compassion are on their way, we just have to be patient and do what we can to help. Find what feeds your soul and do more of it. Be yourself, your authentic self. Pay attention to what triggers you in other people. There is something to learn about yourself in it (this can be hard!).
We have to go deep within and find the switch, it is there, just waiting to be discovered. The answers you want are not outside of you, they are inside. Go find them.
Turn on your high beams, shine your light, let it guide you. I have no doubt you will be delighted where it takes you.
