So, this morning, I opened my email and saw that the latest energy alert from Karen Bishop is entitled "Your Last Energy Alert." I progressed immediately to the first stage of grief: Denial. No, she doesn't mean the "last" energy alert. It's just some clever play on words that will become clear when I actually read the thing. Nope. She's really signing off. What followed was not so much anger (second stage), as a desire to run around the room screaming like my head was on fire. I restrained the impulse, in deference to the emotional well-being of my cats. I admit it. I've really come to depend on these updates. They're a reality check in a surreal world.
I first became aware of Karen Bishop and her wonderful service through a client. She'd forwarded me an alert she had received from someone else. This was several years ago, and I only wish I'd discovered her site earlier. Like many lightworkers, I had been experiencing a number of the symptoms on her list, and feeling pitched and tossed on the waves of a rapidly shifting reality. What she wrote affirmed so many of my perceptions about the vicissitudes of the collective unconscious, and provided a context for the emotional and physical symptoms that had me on a roller-coaster.
I've lost track of how many clients I've directed to Bishop's site, since then. So many of them have been experiencing the symptoms and turbulence of the rapid, spiritual acceleration that characterizes this time; the anxiety and mood swings, the disturbed sleep patterns, the inexplicable weight gain, the loss of personal identity and sense of place, the sudden inability to be in crowds or other social situations that were once enjoyable... The list goes on. And, those who have been experiencing these things can write chapter and verse about how disruptive these changes have been. There is just something so calming about learning that this is part of a much larger, shared experience, and that it isn't because we're doing something "wrong." Because, let's face it, there is a lot of shaming of dark emotions and physical health challenges in the new age arena, and a lot of pressure to stay "positive." Having these very uncomfortable experiences validated as part of a natural unfolding has, I'm sure, brought welcome relief to many of Bishop's readers.
This alert is no exception. Bishop hits the nail on the head, once again.
Coughing spells, intestinal distress, heart palpitations, and insomnia are also signs of preparation for the new as we release more of the older and denser energies within us. One interesting symptom of ascension is the inability to spell things correctly or write an appropriate sentence. It can be common to superimpose letters as well. As one with a history of perfect spelling and grammar, this has been an interesting experience for me, and has grown increasingly worse. I choose to believe that the message is what is truly important and have really let go of the perfection of it all, so I don’t bother with an editor as well. It simply does not matter anymore and is a place I can no longer go.
This ties in as well with that old familiar memory loss when trying to have a conversation. We are moving into states where energy is all there is. Little details do not matter at this stage. It is the feeling and the energy of anything that is all that is left.
How in the world do we survive when our brains no longer function? We just do. There is a higher part of us, or our souls, who navigate through it all. We are simply losing much of our old 3D selves.
Hear, hear, on the respiratory and digestive thing. I keep wondering if I've suddenly become asthmatic. Spelling and grammar? Check. I'm trying to let go of my perfectionism, too. Very hard with an English degree and a one-time career in book publishing. I've been making errors so strange, I'm dumbfounded when I reread them. But, where the loss of 3D has really been hitting me is in my sense of time. It's gone. I feel like I'm kind of floating, and periodically I get a slap from somewhere that reminds me it's time to pay a bill or some other annoying real world concern. My connection to the temporal is constantly eroding. I'd be lost without my Google Calendar and email reminders.
But, I think I understand why Bishop is abruptly shifting her direction. We are in the midst of an incredible transition. We've passed the tipping point. We've left normal, folks, and do, indeed, live in "interesting times." And, for now, we'll have to navigate them without the frequent, calming, reassurances of Karen Bishop.
Karen Bishop's newest book Stepping Into the New Reality is now available in the bookstore.
