I personally believe we are in the beginning stages of a great transition, an evolution affecting us as individuals and our personal belief systems as well as our society and societal structures.
Transitions are very often messy and painful like the birthing process itself. Things may initially appear chaotic and feel unfamiliar and confusing. Naturally, there will be expansion and contraction as the old begins to die away and the new slowly takes its place.
I also believe that the only way through this is to go within and become curious about who it is that dwells in the innermost levels of my being. Getting to know my most sacred and powerful self, the one who holds abundant wisdom and is able to discern truth, will provide me what is needed in these times. Creativity is my tool to go within.
