“You can accept or reject the way you are treated by other people, but until you heal the wounds of your past, you will continue to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex, but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them.”

Hello, my lovelies.
Are you feeling it? This intense energy?
If you are, then I am glad.
Even though it is rough, and kind of hard to handle.
I’m glad because it means that you’re moving in the right direction.
You see, we’re in the middle of some pretty big shift. You’d have to be pretty stuck to not feel it. And for all of you who are empathic, sensitive or intuitive, this could be a pretty intense ride. The full moon is amplifying it. The heavens and their alignment are amplifying it. The earth in her wisdom is amplifying it – this crazy, crazy-making energy of shift.
As we move to a higher vibration so much of what we have carried within our bodies and our cellular memories, so much of what is encoded in our DNA, and in the deepest recesses of our memories, so many of our old patterns and beliefs, old injuries and illnesses that were anchored deep into our tissue, they are all letting go.
Which may mean that you feel swamped.
Or that shit keeps going down.
Know what I mean?
And it might be making you feel more than a little edgy. Or crazy. Or desperate. Like you’re back down the rabbit hole again, and you’ll never get out. Like things will never, ever be sorted. Like you thought you were done with all of this, and yet here you are again, right in the place you thought you’d left far behind.
I want to remind you that it will pass. Don’t sit in fear with it. Don’t hang onto all of this old stuff or reclaim it by saying ‘This always happens to me.’ Don’t let any of this old stuff define you.
Be brave in witnessing this passing as the old energies move out of your life. Give them up. Let them go. Don’t fight them. Don’t freak yourself out by thinking that this place you’re in right now will never end.
If you’ve ever driven down a dead-end street you’ll know that you have to pass all that same stuff you’ve already travelled by as you head back out onto the open road again.
Face it head on. Cry if you must. And then keep going. Because this is what levelling up is all about. Keep your eyes on where you want to go, rather than the road behind you. Hold onto your dreams.
You’d always intended that this would be the life where you’d clear and let go of all of this. So get to it! I have so much faith in you.
