Recently I was stopped by a train in Longmont, CO. As I was sitting there waiting to proceed, I noticed a building on the right, an old factory-type place with a sign that said Cheese Importers. Having an hour to kill before my next meeting, I decided to check it out. As soon as the train made its final pass I made a quick right and pulled into the parking lot in the back. How surprising to find a patio filled with cute little bistro sets and wrought iron fixtures, all brightly painted – blue, yellow, orange, lime green and more! It was enchanting and brought to mind the images I have in my head of a European plaza.
I was having one of those days. You know, the kind of day where you do something really stupid and then beat yourself up over it for several days after. Well here I was, well into day two of flogging myself – you know how it works, you start dredging up past wrongs, one after another, months and then years’ worth, and heap those on top of the current wrong you did. Pretty soon you’ve got a pile of boulders on your back and you’re walking around all hunched over and angry. Mad at yourself for being so stupid, seeing yourself as a total screw up, over and over and over.
I recently got a new computer, it has the new operating system Windows 8. A big change from my old system; completely different, totally unfamiliar and driving me crazy. It’s not intuitive to me and to say that I struggle trying to figure out where to go and how to do things is an understatement. My old system didn’t have all the new bells and whistles that the new one does, but at least it was familiar and I knew how to navigate it. Why do they have to change everything?
Energetically, planet Earth is in the same predicament. Since the shift in 2012, we too have upgraded to a new operating system, transitioning from the old 3D paradigm into a 5th Dimensional one. Gone are all the old rules and structures that we knew. Even if we didn’t like the old system, at least we knew how to navigate it – it was familiar.
Change is the only constant and now more than ever we need to be open to change. We are awakening and as we awaken we are being asked and nudged to live in a new way – to function in a new operating system. And guess what? There are no rules – we’re creating this New Earth as we go along.
