Birthing the New Earth
We are at a crossroads between the material and spiritual worlds and giving birth to the new earth in the process. This is not a new country, planet or location, it is a vibrational shift that is the fulfillment of our desire for transformation and an end of one aspect of our spiritual journey and the beginning of another. The new earth cannot be defined as a single experience, it will represent many things for many people. But the process of birthing the new earth may be challenging and confusing and like giving birth, at times downright painful.
The birthing process begins with a contraction, a realization that something is not right or an event that forces you to accept that transformation is required. This could be a sense of dissatisfaction with your life, the end of a relationship, a job loss, an accident or other traumatic event or an illness. Your life as you know it stops and you have to regroup, reconsider, re-assess your priorities and make changes. The contraction is painful because there are emotions attached to it and it is challenging because it represents a shift, an ending and a point of transformation.
The contraction an opening to an expansion of energies, if you choose to consider new possibilities and use your spiritual understanding to assess the lesson, create new options and step into your power and releasing fear. Or it is followed by another contraction if you choose the path of fear, disillusionment and powerlessness. Each contraction is followed by an opportunity for expansion and eventually the contractions stop when you find powerful new options for your life. When we move through the contraction into expansion, we create an opening for the new earth in our life.
The promise of the new earth is ours when we are willing to accept its blessings, release our judgments, and be open to possibilities beyond those we can imagine. The periods of contraction show us where we are limiting our options, the expansion provides us with a view of what is possible, if we choose to abandon our judgments and attachments, surrender fear and allow the impossible to become possible. Every contraction is followed by an expansion, just as everything that is removed from our life is always replaced with something that is more suited to our new vibration. And the promise of the new earth is one of blessings, the peace that passes all understanding and joy beyond our imagining.
