"Apocalypse" (ἀποκάλυψις) is a Greek word meaning "revelation", "an unveiling or unfolding of things not previously known and which could not be known apart from the unveiling".
These are revealing and healing times!
I've been getting quiet and feeling into it, contemplating...a lot. Waking up at all hours, meditating, healing myself with Reiki as I often do.
My Grandmothers have re-entered my awareness of late. In meditation, we walked and talked about how these times are very similar to the great depression of the 1930's. These were very dark times indeed. Especially for my maternal grandmother. She lost her husband to illness, and was left alone to rear 6 children, the youngest, my mother. Then, she too succumbed to illness and passed away at the ripe young age of 34, leaving behind all her children to be orphaned. This is one story, imagine how many other stories are out there and in here. Our remembrance is triggered at these times. Even the Astrologers are likening these times to the depression era. These are karmic energies that are being revealed to be healed. Why do you think we became so materialistic? Have we been trying to fill the gaping hole of not enoughness, scarcity and feelings of less than by buying our way out of depression?
I see these times as a wonderful opportunity to heal the wounds of the great depression era, and the karma and the drama that came with it. I am reminded that when our mother was in their mothers womb, we were a seed in our mothers womb also. So, yes...I/we carry this seed of depression, scarcity and loss.
We are here now to face and feel the fear of losing it all. We are encouraged not to turn away, but to turn inward. Be with all of what is rising within. I have been observing myself sail through feelings of equanimity, fear, uncertainty, anger, confusion, playfulness, denial, empathy, compassion, sadness, courage, and on and on it goes. These are choppy waters, but we can hoist the sails and cut our way through the waves....without judgement. Let it all rise...set sail!
How present are we right now? I mean, we really are living moment to moment. We can't plan anything, because we have no idea where we are going. This too creates much fear within. We thought we had it all worked out didn't we? But the truth is, we never did have it worked out, we never did have any control over tomorrow. It was never, has never and will never be a given. Life does not come with guarantees, we just took it all for granted...same old, same old. Now we are faced with our uncertainty and the unknown which means facing the Truth that life is transient. What an incredible awakening!
The Truth is being unveiled for us all to see. I love the Greek meaning of Apocalypse don't you? We are literally seeing through the veils of illusion!
So, while we are being isolated in our homes, we now have the time to sift through our stuff and de-clutter that which no longer serves us. Not just on a materialistic level but most importantly, the crap that we have accumulated within that has kept us from the truth of what really "matters".
The spotlight has really been put on our Health. How can we make changes to support our wellness and the wellness of our loved ones and our planet?
If we just look at creating a vaccine to solve this global dis-ease then we are really just going to shoot ourselves in the foot! This is only a short term answer with short term results. Because there will be another virus and another and another until we truly get it. The Health of our planet is at stake, make no mistake. If she is ill, then we are ill. We rely on her for our health and wealth. Health is Wealth. Period!
The Revelation, the Truth being unveiled right now is, we have to change! For life to go on, we must take care of the health of our planet, she is the provider and source of our sustenance, of life itself.
So, while we are literally being "grounded", we may as well get down and dirty. I'm talking soil health. Life begins here and ends here. We have been killing our soils with antibiotics for years, just as we are killing our guts with antibiotics, which is why our defense to viruses is so low. From Farmer to Pharma, we, us, our planet included is being slowly poisoned. (Did you know that the pharmaceutical company Bayer also manufacture the very poisons that are killing our soils?) That's right, the company that creates the poison also creates the cure? Weird huh?
How can we help? Start small, look into soil (soul) health. Find out what you can. Stop using poisons around your home. I'm talking Round Up and Glyphosate which are water-based chemicals that end up in our food, air, water, lungs etc. It's almost impossible to get away from, but awareness is everything. Check out talks by Dr Zach Bush M.D. He is doing amazing work. https://zachbushmd.com/
If you feel called to start your own garden, go organic! Buy Organic food if and when you can. We are what we eat!
Now is the time to be the change we have been looking for!
Namaste (we are one)
