Rip off the mask, tear down the walls. Show the world your beautiful self!

After a crazy busy morning, this week of gale force winds, figuratively speaking, wound down to a nice, peaceful, air cooling breeze.  Friday afternoon found everyone unwinding from the rapid fire tasks we saw the rest of the week, and finding a little time to just laugh and chat.  It was quite cathartic.

I, for one, followed it up with a very good, very sweaty workout and a relaxing evening at home with my cats.  

I did find, though, that I couldn’t really settle.  I tried watching TV, but turned it off after a few minutes.  Then I tried reading a book I’d downloaded.  It failed to hold my interest.  I tried playing a computer game and was doing ok with that until the kids came by to help with Loki’s meds (that darned cat is getting really strong now that the bladder infection is winding down.)  You cannot believe how tightly a 5.4 pound cat can clamp her jaws and how hard she can kick out her feet when you’re doing something that clearly does not interest her.  She’s much better behaved when we stick the needle in her back to give her fluids!  I guess we’ve been doing that for so long, she just sort of resigns herself to the process, and at least we’re not messing with her mouth!

As I said, I’m having a difficult time settling tonight.  I was going to relax, maybe do a mask, wash my hair.. girlie stuff, but never did get around to it.  In fact, Ahsantara Gray, the Celtic Faery Seer posted this today, and it is almost like she was in my head!

of shifts are happening this week my friends. I’m finding many souls are
experiencing intense periods of tiredness or melancholy as they
‘reflect’ on the past. This is all natural and as it should be. We are
collectively experiencing a ‘shift’ in our vibrations. Symptoms of this
can include fatigue; doubt (with yourself or others) or extreme
ungrounded positivity regarding your path ahead; confusion
or overflowing ideas; sore throats and headaches, and dramatic
‘changes’ regarding friendships (either feeling particularly bonded to
certain people or unusually repelled by them). Be gentle with yourself
if you’re feeling these shifts, and with anyone who is exhibiting signs
and symptoms. Send heartfelt waves of compassion and understanding to
anyone who you feel is struggling (in the form of a pink and green
light), and remember to include yourself in this! All will be well my
friends, simply flow with the changes, look for the goodness around you,
and simply BE” 

Inasmuch as I woke up in the middle of the night with a raging headache which, despite my best efforts, continued into the morning (much to Toby’s delight as it meant I was awake more and available to pay more attention to himself!), and actually spent most of yesterday with a dull throb that was more annoying than painful, I guess I must be shifting more than most!  Again, this is no surprise, as I’ve been experiencing some interesting dreams and feelings of change over the last week or two.  I’ve also been sending out healing energy to different people, as well as to Loki.  Typically, my healing energy is a bright green, but I noticed while I was giving some to Loki that it wanted to be pink, so I just let it be.

It’s especially surprising that my energy level is so high given how little sleep I got last night, but that may just be part of the whole energy shift that’s going on.  I may be so tapped into the flow that my own sleep pattern no longer affects my energy level.  I am one with the energy of the Universe.  That is not a bad thing, by any means!  I do, however, need to figure out how to contain it so that I can actually get some things done!  Right now, I’m just a will o’ the wisp, dancing on the wind currents!

I’m looking forward to the start of my class, but find myself obsessing over stupid things like what will I eat for breakfast and what should I wear.  The same is true of a full moon teleconference I’ve signed up for.  I’m obsessing over missing the call and have put reminders all over the place! 

This is especially disconcerting as I’m really not the obsessive type.  Thankfully, my obsessiveness seems to be limiting itself to things having to do with my Spiritual path, but as that is becoming a very big part of my life, the obsessing could reach epic proportions if not dealt with right now!  Somehow, I don’t think becoming obsessive is part of my path!

I am getting validation for these unsettled feelings as the cats continue to be very clingy and talkative.  Munchkin has been nagging almost continuously, Toby and Loki take every opportunity to park themselves in my lap and Scooby and Dylan are never far away.  Even my old girl, Patches, is dragging her chubby butt out of her hidey hole a lot more often right now.

The feeling that is strongest in my mind right now is best described in a song by Bob Dylan called “The Times They are a’changing”    As far as I’m concerned, the words are even more fitting now than when he recorded the song in 1964!

Come gather ’round people

Wherever you roam

And admit that the waters

Around you have grown

And accept it that soon

You’ll be drenched to the bone

If your time to you

Is worth savin’

Then you better start swimmin’

Or you’ll sink like a stone

For the times they are a-changin’.

Come writers and critics

Who prophesize with your pen

And keep your eyes wide

The chance won’t come again

And don’t speak too soon

For the wheel’s still in spin

And there’s no tellin’ who

That it’s namin’

For the loser now

Will be later to win

For the times they are a-changin’.

Come senators, congressmen

Please heed the call

Don’t stand in the doorway

Don’t block up the hall

For he that gets hurt

Will be he who has stalled

There’s a battle outside

And it is ragin’

It’ll soon shake your windows

And rattle your walls

For the times they are a-changin’.

Come mothers and fathers

Throughout the land

And don’t criticize

What you can’t understand

Your sons and your daughters

Are beyond your command

Your old road is

Rapidly agin’

Please get out of the new one

If you can’t lend your hand

For the times they are a-changin’.

The line it is drawn

The curse it is cast

The slow one now

Will later be fast

As the present now

Will later be past

The order is

Rapidly fadin’

And the first one now

Will later be last

For the times they are a-changin’.

What changes are you feeling or experiencing right now?

My gratitudes tonight are:
1. I am grateful that the chaos has broken, at least for now.
2. I am grateful to be living in a time when the world is changing dramatically and that I get to be a part of those changes.
3. I am grateful for the confirmations I am getting from many other sources concerning my feelings and expectations in the days ahead.
4. I am grateful for the input and support I am getting from other bloggers.
5. I am grateful for increased energy levels in spite of loss of sleep.

  1. So this shift sounds like EVERYTHING I am going through right now. What happens on the other side of this shift? For one – I woke up the other day with a scratchy throat and I don't know why or where it came from… I do know that it needs to go away asap. I am also feeling “funny” toward a LOT of my friends …. it's interesting. I need to read more about this shift 🙂 It definitely speaks to me.
    Love your grateful list…. and don't you love when the universe sends you messages to confirm how you've been feeling about something in particular? 🙂


I look forward to your comments.
