what's going on twith the energy on the planetThis is a question I hear many people asking… friends, clients, colleagues, and strangers alike...

What is going on with the energy? 

This question gets asked in the various groups I belong to, the classes I teach, networking events I attend, grocery stores, restaurants and on Facebook posts.

Just about every place I go I hear some version of this question:

What is going on?

What the heck is going on with the energy on the planet?

Yes, the energy feels different and many people are finding it to be intense, emotional, frustrating. Overwhelming, and confusing.

To some (like a couple of my cats who are sensitive to energies) the energy seems to be swirling or spinning, making them feel a bit dizzy and off balance.

Perhaps you are super sensitive to energy this way too. (Grounding yourself every day will help.)

Some think things are moving way too fast.

Others tell me the energy feels dense and they feel bogged down. And some feel nothing at all.

So if you are asking what is going on with the energy, the answer is…

You are.

You are changing and evolving. Your vibration is changing and evolving. woman balancing on the edge of the world

Life as we know it is changing and evolving.

We are in a time of transition.

The old ways simply aren’t working anymore.

We are all experiencing internal shifts that may be triggering us on many different levels.

This is the energy at work on the planet this year.

This is the energy at work in you this year.

My suggestion... accept this and stop fighting or resisting it.

Yes, I know, easier said than done!!

You're not alone. We are all in this together. I get challenged by the energy too and the growth it is stimulating.

I slip into resistance and wrestle with what is going on and what isn’t happening that I thought I wanted to happen. I also wonder why and what to do about it.

Choclate candiesAt times, I find myself wanting to food-medicate (dark chocolate seductively beckons to me, and so do cocoa-roons and quinoa cookies)… 

When I resist the siren song of my afore mentioned treats, I next try to avoid what Spirit is asking me to address by distracting myself...

(email, web surfing, reading, learning something, playing Mahjong or solitaire, wandering around my house, checking the mailbox, or cooking are in my distraction arsenal).

Yet, when I stop and simply sit with the energy.

Relax into it and let it guide me, things come together in a more gentle way.

And more quickly too!

There is a saying: What you resist persists.

Wise and true!

The energy right now, and for at least the rest of this year, is letting you know that whatever you are resisting will persist until you surrender to it and acknowledge what is coming up for you so you can finally release it and let it go… for good! 

Some of this stuff that’s coming up for each of us is from other lifetimes, as we are often quite adept at postponing, ignoring or hiding our emotions.

Thing is, if we don’t deal with them, we carry them around in our energy… Things like anger, rage, hate, resentment, blame, shame, guilt, betrayal, abandonment, rejection, and so on. 

(And no, locking them in a box somewhere in our psyche isn’t dealing with them!)

We carry these old, buried emotions and traumas from lifetime to lifetime, accumulating more as we go.

We stockpile them, pretend they aren’t there, get pissed when they start to leak out, and totally freak out when they escape without warning.

Until we acknowledge them and allow ourselves to feel them, they exert a pressure and a control on us that results in fear and anxiety.

The energy on the planet is working to help you confront and dissolve these things so they no longer have any control over you. It is part of you letting go of your baggage so you can raise your vibration.

And although I said the energy is in play this year, I suspect this energy will continue to be a catalyst for us until we’ve shifted the things that we intended to shift before we incarnated into our current bodies.

How long will that take? How long will this energy be in affect?

Again, it depends… on you.

Are you willing to let go of your old, outmoded ways of doing things?

Are you willing to feel what you are feeling when you are feeling it?

Are you willing to feel the old emotions that you stuffed years and even lifetimes ago, so you can finally be free of their weight holding you back?

Are you willing to let go of limiting beliefs about yourself, others, your situation and the world?

Are you willing to stop believing everything your mind (and ego aspect of your personality) tells you?

Are you willing to forgive… yourself and others?

Are you willing to let go of all the stories you have created or bought into (that just are not true)?

Are you willing to stop identifying who you are by what you do, and simply be you?

Are you willing to let go of all previously held preconceptions about who you are, who you should be and what you should be doing?

Are you willing to release the need to judge (self or others)?

Are you willing to stop comparing?

Are you willing to allow yourself to be guided by your Spirit?

Are you willing to love and accept yourself… as is?

Are you willing to reclaim your true self and thrive?

Are you willing to embrace the spark of the Divine in you?

Are you willing to accept abundance and love as your birthright?

The more open and willing you are to doing these things, the quicker you can raise your vibration and move through whatever is coming up for you, challenging you, frustrating you, triggering you.

Is it easy?


We’re all still human.

Yet it gets easier when we stop resisting and fighting because we want it to be different than what it is.

And it gets easier when we look for the gift in the crap we are knee deep in… there is always a gift.

And it gets easier when you see how everything is a mirror conspiring for your higher good (although it often is a very uncomfortable mirror!).

Remember, this isn't a punishment! It is a cosmic encouragement from the Divine to help us let go of what no longer serves our highest good.

We resist change as a species, yet it is through change we evolve.

Ride the wave instead of trying to stop it.

Make time for being still and quiet. Allow feelings to move through.

And if your message is to wait, be patient and wait.

The energy on the planet is helping us to learn how to be…

to become Human BEings rather than Human DOings.

For many of us that is an alien concept!

BE instead of DO.

Practice being you! And be patient and gentle with the process.

Love & blessings,
