As part of Earth's ascension process, the energetic veils which have kept her in the third dimension since her inception are thinning, and this process of refinement has accelerated rapidly since the solstice last December. It has been a major factor in creating the challenges and opportunities which have manifested for so many of us this year.
These layers have been protective of Gaia also, and another repercussion of their dilution is that the mysterious and wonderful world that lies beyond is becoming more and more accessible. It works in both directions, in that just as we can connect more knowingly with that cosmic reality, so also it can connect with us. Some people can see this new world, others feel and sense it. It is not to be feared, just recognised for what it is - part of this process of growth and transformation, expansion at every level.
If you have felt a little discombobulated recently, perhaps under the weather or under pressure, it may be due in part to the impact of these energetic connections as well as your own personal transition. If you have been affected, I suggest you rest, nurture and nourish yourself and remind yourself of your place in nature. Your totemic power animal will help you greatly at these times if you ask it to do so, providing protection and guardianship from anything that does not serve your highest good.
Above all, let the movements in the greater scheme of life occur without attempting to change or influence them. They are for a reason and purpose. Let them be, in a spirit of serene acceptance, perhaps even joy for what they mean.
