Tsunamis of Love
“Feeling change in the air…the larger energy cycle shifted in mid-April, and I feel it continuing to open up. The balls that have been up in the air will all fall to the ground in May, and June will be the GO month…a month of action. We’ll see!”- Licia Berry’s status on FaceBook on April 26, 2009, which generated some questions
For many years, I have spoken on this website about the larger energy cycles that our planet and therefore all inhabitants are going through…the increasing intensity that we all feel is no accident. On this page you will find the archives of years of my paying attention to and recording this phenomenon.
We are riding a series of energy waves, a collective tsunami of love if you will, that has increased exponentially since the year 2000.
I have received questions from folks wanting to know what is going on, but it is already said here. If you read over the years and years of entries that I have posted about my experience of the larger energy cycles, you will see a build up and you will also see that I have shared my own human growth and awarenesses as I, too, change for the better.
You guys, this is the most remarkable time to be alive and awake. Things are crashing down around us; in job loss, health crises, relationships ending, geographical relocations, etc…all of the stress factors that can happen to get our attention are happening right now. All of this is happening in the name of our waking up to a deeper and greater experience of being alive and joyful, more authentically ourselves. Yes, becoming conscious can be a challenge…but not becoming conscious is just the worst possible scenario I can imagine.
When I was young, I wondered why people seemed like zombies or like robots, and so sad. I was engaged in life, played with the magic…over time, though, I became sad and more asleep, too. I have compassion for myself and others….I think it is very easy, even if we have the best intentions, to be indoctrinated into the Great Slumber that so many of us partake of as we zoom through our very short life on this planet. For many, the sleep seems the most comforting alternative…being numb to the pain seems better than feeling the pain. In my case, though, I found that being asleep was more uncomfortable than being awake; when I was 21, some part of me realized I was missing something (I won’t retell that story here; it is at least partially documented in much of my writing, including my book Love Letter). I have been on a quest to wake up ever since.
Partaking of the Great Slumber has a terrible cost. I am learning that when we don’t FEEL, we are missing out on the whole point of being here, in physical form on earth. I have it on good authority that we came to experience and report back the data to our Source….and if we aren’t FEELING and processing what we are experiencing, we are cheating Source of that which we promised to provide. Well, we can always come back another time. But will we be awake next time? Wouldn’t it be more amazing if we were awake NOW?
I have been in the process of deep transformation, AGAIN (gosh, it just keeps getting deeper and better!) I have been on a kind of sabbatical since June of last year, a process of entering the chrysalis for deep transformation. The most recent accelerator and assistant to my process has been that I broke my ankle in February, an injury which has catapulted me into a healing and re-balancing of my inner feminine and inner masculine. Of course I had the option of seeing myself as a victim and, as I saw in my research, drinking beer and watching TV for 8 weeks (!!!) to pass the time while I could not walk. But I didn’t want to do that. When it happened, one of the first things I chose was that I was going to milk this occurrence for all it was worth. And I have, and as a result, the insights have come so fast and furious that at times I could not write them down fast enough. But this has been about more than writing it down, although I was encouraged to record this experience day after day. This was a true body/mind/spirit metamorphosis, an experiential rebirth, one that can scarcely be talked about in words. Again, this attention getter was no accident…it was a divine tool of assistance to help me wake up in a deeper and more meaningful, authentic way.
This is akin to what we are all being given the opportunity to do right now. Of course, all of our situations are different…the details and the themes in our lives are individual to each of us. But the larger tsunami of love is the same….we are all being given the opportunity to wake up to a deeper and more authentic life, if we will just cooperate with it, surrender in it.
The larger energy waves will increase….as with all cycles, there is an ebb and flow. I felt an energy shift in mid-April, a sort of coming out of hibernation feeling, or a coming out of the chrysalis…what that looked like for me was a series of little energy releases, and then a huge energy release on my birthday April 23rd, and increasing clarity and balance since then. What I feel coming over the near horizon is that May is a month when we will be getting some answers to our questions we have been asking since January, and then June will be a GO month, and month where right action will be greatly supported.
Right action? What do I mean by that? I mean action that is carefully considered, a feminine trait in my language. I am learning in my own life that action should not be taken unless it is discerned, weighed and measured. FELT (there is that FEELING thing again) in all of my deepest places- body, mind and soul.
In my own process and learning of allowing the feminine to lead, softness and wisdom are the way to approach first, then to ask the inner masculine to step in to take action based on the input of the feminine. In the past, I have tried to force things, to make something happen, without asking the quiet sage of my inner feminine for her input. I have learned a great lesson from this….the awareness of divine timing is something that lives in each of us if we will but listen.
So, like the rest of the human club, I am changing, and all areas of my life will reflect these changes. I choose to surrender. I choose to become an adept surfer, rather than to cover my ears and eyes and pretend the waves aren’t coming, thus resulting in my getting clobbered by them. I choose to dance with this ecstatic universe, I choose to play and be who I truly am…I choose to fulfill my promise to Source by being as awake as possible, as much as my heart and soul can bear. Hurrah, Hoka Hey, and Holy of Holies, this is the time.
