Quiet Before the Storm?

Recently we were talking with a friend who is also shamanic practitioner, just catching up and staying in touch.  Our discussion turned to how we were all doing in our practices, and strangely, we discovered that the month of September for us, her and others that we know, it has been ‘quiet’.  Even though there is daily life activity, the pervading energy feels like a ‘waiting’.  A waiting for what?  It is almost like the collective whole is holding it’s breath, waiting for the other shoe to drop, the door to open, the planets to align?

To me, this waiting energy feels more connected with the collective fear of what is coming.  There have been years of opinions published and discussion on the year 2012 in every  media available and has created this waiting fear or anticipation through the collective.  This in effect has every individual holding their breath on some level. Unknown fear is stopping movement in the person’s life.

That very old saying of ‘we have nothing to fear except fear its self’ is very correct in this case.  We really don’t know what may or may not happen next year. We won’t know until whatever it is shows up on our individual doorstep.  Then and only then can we, as individuals or a collective, respond or react to what is presented.

So, for me, I am not holding my breath (or energy) and will play with whatever is presented….only when it is presented.  I hope others can approach our changing times with the same ease, because we can only hold our breath for so long.

Until Next Time:
