In the past few days, many of you have let go of people, objects and communities that have been a central part of your life. And so you are once again exhausted.
Perhaps you lost a favorite pair of earrings; or your perceptions of your family or community shifted. Whatever it was, that piece tugged at your heart and brought tears to your eyes. You let go of a part of your being, your heart.
If you are moving towards a heart-centered life, how is it possible you needed to let go of something that was in your heart? We have described this new earth/new age shift as that those who wish to move into the New Age will find those who do not much less interesting.
What happened in the last few days is related to this concept in a somewhat convoluted fashion. The pieces or people who you found the need to let go are those who are not interested in being part of the New Age. But you never imagined letting go would be so painful.
What you let go of this week was the last piece of the Old Age you were hoping would continue to be part of your life in a way that did not distract you from your forward moment – somewhat like leaving your home of origin. And so it is to a certain extent, but the pieces you let go in the last few days are pieces you really never wanted to lose.
An analogy would be the many families in World War I Europe who were separated because of their heritage, instead of their beings. It was not uncommon for an English family with German relatives to negate the warm and loving connection the two families had maintained for generations. After the war, those two families were never able to connect on the level that had been true in earlier years – there were too many topics they could not discuss or share.
So it will be with you and that piece or pieces that you let go in the last few days. Perhaps the earrings were an important part of your memory bank that you used as a reminder of loving activities when you looked at yourself in a mirror. Or perhaps it is a family structure you no longer preceive in the same way. The image/life you wanted to maintain can no longer be maintained by you.
You are exhausted because you are in a period of mourning. To create new structures, the former structures need to be destroyed, shifted or changed. And so it is with you.
Those of you who have long hoped for the new earth/New Age always assumed, or at least hoped, that the transition would be relatively easy emotionally. And so it has been and will be. It just does not feel like that at this moment. It most likely feels as if your heart has been ripped apart and loosely stitched together as a temporary measure.
Please know that such is not the case. You will not be and are not alone. You indeed can reconnect with those people, communities and objects that have so damaged your emotions in the past few days. It is just that you will reconnect on a different level – or not reconnect at all.
Even though you perhaps have not labeled this transition as such, this transition is a revolution of the greatest magnitude. Revolution means change. But then, all of existence is ongoing change. The difference is that the revolution you are now experiencing is happening at a faster rate than you or anyone anticipated. Reading or listening to concepts is easier than moving through the pieces necessary to actualize a revolution.
But again, you are not alone, nor are you forced to let go of the something or someone you are now mourning.
This is not a physical revolution. It is an inner-directed revolution. So if you find the pain too deep to let go – do not do so. But if you find through your tears that you now understand that the relationship was never quite as you envisioned it to be – that you had created something loving that the other persons, communities or entities did not reciprocate, you will find that after your tears dry you will not wish to return – at least at the same depth as was true before the trauma of the past few days.
You are a unique person with unique needs and directions. You do not have to continue the thought processes that you are now feeling. You can return to the relationship, your community, your job or replace the object. That is and always has been your choice. But we will venture to guess that you will either not do so or will do so on a much different level than was true before you started this mourning process.
Some of you are upset for you want us to tell you that what you let go in the past few days is either gone forever or will return as it was before. Neither is an accurate projection of your new life.
First, we cannot tell you what is correct for you – only you know. That information is stored in your inner-being and can be accessed when you are in a quandary such as you are now. Secondly, you are evolving so rapidly that what was lovely yesterday may not even warrant a second glance today.
So do not feel as if you have given up all of your loving relationships and memories to move into the New Age. But then again, do not necessarily expect that the life that was a great joy to you a few years ago is reality for who you are now.
Listen to your heart, you inner-being and you will know what is correct for you. And as you are doing so, allow yourself to fully mourn what was and may no longer be.
But know that whatever your future holds, it will be based on the love and joy you are feeling more and more within your being. And then know that whatever you let go of recently needed to be shifted, removed or altered in order for you to be the New Age being you are becoming.
Mourn as you did when you put your favorite doll in storage because you were too old to play with dolls. Perhaps you still have that doll and when you find her in her special box, you smile with the fond memories you have of the times you played with her. But you have no need to play with her. And so it is now with the persons or objects you are mourning. So be it. Amen.
