Removing layer after layer – letting go and being free

I must say the past few months have been some of the most intense of my life (this time round).  Layer after layer has been peeled and removed from the proverbial onion – making one wonder when, if ever,  you will reach that state of absolute serenity and simple bliss.

With each removal of a layer however, I have found my life becoming more ‘barren’.  The things I once thought were important seemed to have faded, losing their appeal and effortlessly drifting away from me.  Only later did I come to realize this, now surrounded by empty objects and events – I shifted out of an old layer of what used to be… me…  Standing fresh and anew, in another world, one that I am not accustomed to.

The colors are different and new
The sky is higher up with more space to grow
The soil between my toes is electric with opportunities and new adventures

Yet there I stand, unsure.  Whatever I thought I knew, felt, loved, understood – has been removed.  Refurbished and given to me anew in different forms.  What does it all mean?  Green no longer is green and blues are no longer blues.  The world I find myself in is beyond what I am familiar with.  So one musters strength, the spirit of adventure deeply rooted in my heart and I ventured forth to explore these new lands – the new life that is infront of me.

This, has been happening to almost everybody I know.  On different levels, but yet is has been.  Some dear friends have fallen ill, others facing massive setbacks either in the physical or emotional world.  Each and every single one of us are being challenge – to tear away the old layers, to go to the core of who we are.  Truthfully, we are now being asked to strip away what wasn’t working before so we are left with what is THE most important thing(s) in our life.

Even the simple things I used to adore now bore me, I look at it with distaste and wonder how I ever enjoyed it. In a matter of weeks this shift happened!  I see the world in colors now which I never knew existed, others have faded, obscured by the new, vibrant colors that beckon to me to explore this land further.

Right now, in this moment – we are growing.  Just for a moment, visualize the speed at which the planet is currently spinning, the solar system, the galaxy, the universe.  The speed is immense – you are not standing still are you….

Discover who you are – do not just accept the life that you are living.  Did you choose that life, or was it laid out for you?  Feel with your heart, your emotions!  Let them flow into everything you do. Feel your life, let if be submerged in emotions of love, joy, sadness and sorrow.  With all of those we grow and the end result is always love in the end – all the roads lead there – it is merely the choices we make that may deter us and keep us longer elsewhere.

I have written about different energies before, just like star signs we each have some energetic vibration that tells us more about where we come from and why we feel a certain why.

Embrace the peeling, the removal, the lightness that comes with it.

Now is the time to reinvent yourself, the wheel is passé – reinvent everything.  There are no limit, the sky has no ceiling.  Peel away, and allow yourself to live!

With Honor in Service,
Justin
