Our society with all its gifts and freedoms also creates some new challenges for us as a society. Increasingly people find themselves working alone, raising children alone, being alone. It has become the norm to have our own house, our own computer, our own phone, our own everything. We value independence, not needing anyone, being able to go it alone and do things ourselves. As women, there is some good in this for sure. We can be alone. We can make our own decisions and build a life without abuse. We can choose our partner and our path. Certain imprints may be hard to escape completely though because we may continue to attract what we long to escape. This is the challenge. We need to change our energy in order to attract what we desire. And where lies the balance between being a separate entity, strong and independent and healthy, and being connected to the greater universe without risk of damage and pain? If we need to protect ourselves, how do we stay in the flow? There is beauty and magic in being connected to the world around us, despite it’s chaos and follies. If we don’t get trapped in the negative forces and energies, we can participate without being completely vulnerable. It’s a discipline to not get caught in the drama and darkness that some people live in. To be able to recognize these energetic patterns that are damaging in and of themselves is really important. And if you can tap into the energy that gives gives you more light, more love and more healing, there is no need to isolate yourself as a means of self preservation. Isolation is not the answer. If there is no actual physical threat, you can develop your energetic resources to keep you safe from psychic trauma. The first step is to move away from things that feel heavy and dark. Your intuition is your greatest asset. Start tapping into it. Trust yourself. Deep down, we know the truth, at least our truth. In my next blog I will talk about other strategies to break away from those imprinted energy patterns that keep us stuck.
