Mystic Musings: Are You Overwhelmed With What’s Happening In The World Today?

Do you have an intuitive sense of the unseen? Are you highly sensitive to “vibes” in places? Very attuned to the feelings and needs of others?

Growing up, did you feel like the only one in your family that was this way? Perhaps everyone else went into the family business, stayed in their religion, voted in the same political party.

And do you think they love you, but they don’t understand you? They might even sigh and roll their eyes, when you tell them of the exciting new things you’re discovering (if you still even try to talk to them about this stuff). But do you find they cannot imagine why you would have the interests you have or do the things you do?

Does this make you sad, frustrated or even mad at them? Do you wonder how they can lead such screamingly boring lives? Or do you question what’s wrong with you, you don’t know how to live in the world?

Are you especially overwhelmed with all that is going on with the planet today?

Yeah. I understand.

When I was going through my metaphysical training, my father somehow thought I was getting a degree in parapsychology from the University of Washington! I really don’t think they have a parapsychology department. But I did meet someone recently who said that they do have courses in Consciousness, which is really exciting to hear.

You’re not alone in all of this, even if it seems like it. You’re one of the ones that are feeling it first, but it’s happening to everyone around the world.

There are those of us who are on the leading edge, to whom the invisible is more real than the “real world”. We’re adventurers in our souls, even if we don’t have passports. We’re natural light bringers and intuitive healers.

And even as we know, deep within, that we’re going through an awakening, we cannot fathom the darkness that’s crawling out of the woodwork nowadays.

Here’s the other thing I’m noticing – that all of us intuitives, light bringers, healers, adventurers on the leading edge, are going through one, whopping, identity transformation. The ways we’ve done things before aren’t working any more.

You may be an ‘expert’ in your field and have lost all interest in it. You may have had a dedicated practice for 25+ years and yet something is happening with it. You might be questioning your calling or life purpose.

Things feel and look different. Things are different. And it requires a whole new way of navigating.

So now what?

Here’s what I invite you to do, it’s what worked for me when everything fell apart twelve years ago. I had to do the *exact opposite* of everything I’d been rigorously trained in – of everything I’d taught others to do for 25+ years.

We have to unlearn the old in order to come to know the new.

Approach life as an experiment. Try different things with curiosity and wonder.  Try even *not* doing anything and see what happens.

For me, I had to upgrade all my skills and techniques. It was a very difficult time, going from an energy “expert” to needing a ‘beginners mind’ at every moment.

How To Handle The Waves of Change ©2017 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

Wow, this is an intense time. So many things are coming at us. We have to handle multiple things at once. There’s no time to rest. There’s certainly no sleep at night!!

Now, some people may find this exhilarating. They may feel on top of their game. Yay, them.

Most folks are finding this challenging and overwhelming. If this is you, even though your circumstances are unique, you’re not alone!

What is happening is that Greater Consciousness is coming into form. This is stirring things up.

This will show up in your life in situations or relationships provoking feelings of conflict, resistance, pain, fear, anger, or just wanting to sleep all day!

How to handle these waves of change?

You can fight it. This might be energizing to some. It may keep them from being paralyzed with fear. It might help them break through to the next experience. Or it might get you more enmeshed in it.

You can pretend it’s not happening. This is a different tactic. Just keep going to work and home and act as if nothing unusual is going on. Fake it ’til you make it. This strategy is useful to some folks, a way to hunker down and get through it. However this can also backfire, the situation can accelerate until you have to pay attention to it!

You can ride with it.  Life is like kayaking, sometimes we hit white water, grab hold of your paddles! This is a great way not to resist and ‘go with the flow’ no matter how fast and rough it may seem.

You can dive through the waves. If you’re standing in the water at the beach and the wave seems too big, just dive through it! You’d be surprised how quick you get to the other side.

Old patterns are breaking down. Situations that don’t serve are either going away or getting worse. It’s an opportunity for you to try something new or different, or put into practice what you already know.

However it’s on the way to getting better. You could come out of this time period completely transformed! Don’t resist the ride.

If you really, really want things to be different, this is your chance to change things! Portals of change are opening and are everywhere. All you have to do stay is stay alert, and step through them!
