Transformation and Rebirth

by Grace Tuesday, Jul. 05, 2005 at 9:22 AM

We are in a wonderful time of change.

ARTICLE FROM GRACE



TRANSFORMATION & REBIRTH

"I deal with people everyday and it's my experience that they are experiencing the same situations I am: tired (almost always exhausted), procrastination, lack of motivation, and total inability to do their work, and a real desire not to do it anymore.... and the hardest part is, none of us can understand why? Things that used to be important aren't anymore, plus strange health issues are coming out of nowhere. Is there a higher purpose going on, or are we just going crazy?"

There is a Great Change upon us at this time. This change began after 9/11, when people all over the world started to re-evaluate their lives, and redefine what is really important in life. Since that time, people everywhere have been making profound and sweeping changes: changing their careers, long-term relationships, places of residence, etc., in order to connect with the true essence of themselves, which is joy. The Universe is supporting people to stop doing the things they don't want to do any longer, in order to allow us to do what will truly give us joy and fulfillment.

The time of the Calling is here, and this is what we've all been waiting for, and what many of us have come for. A calling often involves what is untrue falling away, leaving only the pathways that would fulfill our purpose. Often, we may fear these paths, even though they always involve using our greatest gifts, the things that bring us the most joy, and those things that come most easily to us. I have often wondered why we tend to fear this so much, and the answer is that many of us fear our own power, our own greatness, and our own joy. We have used whatever means necessary to keep ourselves and our lives small, and to do the minimum necessary to carry out our purpose on Earth. Well, that's not going to cut it anymore! We are being called to serve the Light of Love, and to shine brightly in our greatness and in our glory. This is the transformation that is at hand.

All transformation involves death and rebirth: the old must die so that the new can be born. Many of us are somewhere along this cycle. For those whose lives are undergoing a death phase, aspects of grief can be expected: we grieve the loss of what has been known and familiar, even if it has been painful (we often get comfortable with being uncomfortable). During this time, the body wants to rest so the spirit and psyche can undergo healing and transition. This is the reason for the lethargy and lack of motivation. If one does not allow for this kind of down time, then the body will manifest physical symptoms "out of nowhere" in order to slow you down so you conserve your energy for the inner work.

Transformation takes a lot of energy. A great deal of the transformation process can take place during the dreamtime, leaving one feeling tired and exhausted upon awakening. If we lived in a culture that honored the sacred rather than the profane, we would all be joining together to support one another in our vision quest, for what we are seeking to bring forth is a new vision of what is possible on Earth. We would not be struggling to toil at mundane work and would instead be committed to the Great Work that is before us. But our society does not presently support this kind of work, so people continue to show up for their "day jobs" with very little energy, presence or enthusiasm. It takes a lot of energy to be a superhero changing the world by night!

The death phase of transformation, or letting go phase, can involve releasing on all levels in order to make room for what is new. Some people may be cleaning house and letting go of things left, right and center, (I know of others who have had this done for them, seemingly against their will through theft). We must now let go of all that no longer serves us in order to lighten our burden for the path ahead; this involves letting go of outmoded habits, old friends who are no longer on our wavelength, and old ways of living life that do not honor who we really are (including jobs, relationships, locations, etc.). We may try to hold on with all our might to what is familiar, but this will only waste precious energy, as all that is no longer true for us must fall away.

Some people may find themselves in between the process of letting go and that of creating anew, feeling a little lost, empty and confused. Do not fight this, for resistance only causes pain, and wastes the energy necessary for the process of creating. The field of plenty must lay fallow for a time before new seeds can be planted, in order to produce a strong and plentiful crop. Take advantage of this quiet time to ask yourself: what gives you joy in life? What is most important to you? How do you want to spend your time on Earth? What gifts do you have to share and offer? Pondering these questions will lead you to a fulfilling path. Always let what gives you joy guide you to make your choices, because your joy is your purpose in life.

All those who allow themselves to go through the darkness of death and letting go will emerge into the Light of rebirth. There are those who are now in the process of beginning new and exciting paths that will be joyful and fulfilling. This is a time of planting new seeds for the future that will have far-reaching implications, and ripples beyond what you can humanly see or imagine. Trust the path that presents itself to you, even if it frightens you and seems to make no sense. Just take one step at a time, accepting where you are in each now. Trust that all is well and good. There is a big picture here, and we are all part of the Great Plan. Choose to play your part, to follow your own inner guidance, and it will bring joy to you and to the world.

All this does serve a higher purpose, and no, you are not crazy. The madness that has befallen this world is falling away so that the truth may emerge once again. We are the shepherds of that Light, and a new day is dawning. We may be feeling that we are losing our minds, and in a way we are, in order to come to our senses! We are being disillusioned by the proliferation of suffering in this world, so that we may understand that suffering itself is an illusion. This must now fall away to reveal the truth: that we are not separated by our skin, but only by our mind, yet we are one of heart. The truth is that love, joy and compassion must prevail on Earth, for this is the purpose of the whole experience of reincarnation, and the point of humanity itself.

One of my specialties in my work is to assist people through the process of transformation and transition. In fact, I am often told that my readings are "enlightening and transformational". It is my great pleasure to provide people with guidance and support through these times by offering a roadmap for joy, peace and success in all aspects of life.
