People are coming up to me and saying, "what the heck is going on?" They are feeling a general case of the icks and don't know why. This blog post is for all of you - the ones that are flying high and the ones that are facing the icks. This is what I have observed from talking to folks lately and in my own life - you are either flying high (after months, years? of ick and feel like everything you touch is turning to gold) or... you are facing a major case of the icks (one that will not give up no matter what you do).
What is the lesson in all of this? What does it all mean? Why is this happening?
(Am I the only one who sits around and asks these questions or are you all interested too?)
I believe that we have spent the past few years preparing for this new time on Earth. Our problems are not so new, we are not the first to deal with political challenges, impending wars, un-ending wars, fear on the streets... But, we have never dealt with these things with the level of technological and human awareness advancement before. And... so we are in this unusual place of seeing something not great and actually knowing we CAN do something about it. That in between place is causing excitement (the people on the highs) and anxiety (the people facing the icks).
What do we do now?
Nothing. Yup, nothing. If you are facing the high highs, then just enjoy it. Surf that wave, as I love to say, and build, create, discover and add all of the brilliance you can into this environment. It is your time to enjoy it and to do whatever you can to continue to create good in this time. Know that this is a part of life, and it is meant to be enjoyed and savored and so do that with every cell of your being.
If you are in a state of ick (like I have been), then, do nothing. Trying to get out of it is useless and can, at times, pull you in deeper. Just understand that this is a part of life and the ONLY thing you need to do in this phase is KEEP YOUR PEACE. What that means is feeling it, crying, gratitude practices, self care, self love, long walks in the brisk air, whatever you need to do to stay at peace. For me, a natural people-person, it also has meant limiting my time with others since my, "You are so annoying" button is trigger happy these days. I understand, my ONLY job, is to keep my peace.
Want to get your PEACE on?
Join me in Adventures with Amina during the month of November and December to amp up our peace, joy, and love vibe to let all the good that is available to us to flow in as we end this year. During November, we are going to be doing 27 gratitude practices from Pam Grout's book, Thank and Grow Rich and in December, we are going to be doing 25 peace practices based on A Course in Miracles. All are welcome to join us in an amping up of the good.
