Transitions and Shifts
Am I a new agist in hiding?
I have been wanting to write about this for a few weeks but was unsure of how to do so without sounding like a new age convert. I am not.
I still have no idea what this blog post will end up sounding like but that hasn’t stopped me before.
Over the past few weeks, I have felt that there is a profound energy shift – not just for me but for so many people around me, also. When I refer to “energy shift”, I simply mean that when listening to what is going on with these people’s lives, it seems like they are all on the cusp of something transitioning and it even feels a bit different when being around them or speaking with them.
For those of you reading this and thinking “can I get whatever it is Marc had this weekend?”, let me explain. You know when you are around someone and their energy is just present…it affects you and may even rub off on you? It’s sort of like that.
At first, I thought it was just that feeling I sometimes get when the Fall hits and the air tastes differently and the sunlight casts different shadows than in the summer. Then I imagined it had more to do with all the many things happening simultaneously in my own life propelling me in an unknown direction. But that wasn’t it, either.
I could sense shifts in my own kids – shifts beyond the normal evolution that takes place with growing up. I spoke with friends who were coming out of intense situations or circumstances, some short and some after long periods, either for better or for worse. As I listened to each of them, it seemed more than coincidental that this feeling – a cautious but real feeling – that something was about to change; the cliche “starting a new chapter” was a common theme.
It reminded me of a book I read a long time ago called The Celestine Prophecy. I don’t remember the actual plot but do recall taking away this idea that there are no coincidences in life and that there are times when profound “shifts” occur and we can either lean into them or work against them.
I am sure if I go online I can find plenty of spiritual “evidence” to support this feeling I have. But I don’t want to simply because it doesn’t matter. I believe that there is a lot to be said for paying attention, being uncomfortable and having some faith that the journey we are on is the journey we are meant to be on – whether it feels easy or not.
In the end, though myself and others may have difficult learnings ahead of us, I actually feel very optimistic about what this shift may lead to – for each of us. The idea that there could be some sort of cosmic shift occurring, spiritual or otherwise, and that it is not coincidental nor unique to our own experience is a very hopeful idea for me. It makes me feel like there really is a connectivity to others. That is never a bad thing.
Do you feel like there is any fundamental shift happening around you?
