The water element is very present in our lives today.
Just like pain in our physical body, water flooding the surface of Earth is a call for us to pause and listen deeply.
But, are we listening ?
I remember a Grandmother , a wisdom Keeper, I met in Guatemala back in 2010 forewarned me :
“the state of the water on our planet reflects the state of the emotional body in humans. Once humans heal their emotions, our waters will be crystalline again.”
Intuitively this made so much sense to me. The universal law says “As above, so below. As within, so without.”
Water is the element that represents our emotions. Moreover, our physical body is mostly made of water.
It made sense to me that after so many years and generations of dishonouring our physical body, we have come to dishonour the waters. In alchemy, water is the element that nourishes and gives life.
Would that mean we have taken life for granted?
Just like our body and water itself?
Yet what kept me in self enquire, observation and reflection for years is our relationship to our emotions. This is a topic that fascinates me since I have memory, and became a central part of the work I do as a Soul Alchemist.
We have mastered the art of turning our awareness away from our emotions. We walk around living in our heads, numbing our emotions with fake hormones, antidepressants, food, alcohols, sex, work, busyness and other heavy addictions.
For very good reasons, though. The intensity of some emotions is just too much. There is great pain in our cellular memory passed down through generations. There is suffering in this life time.
What I hear the water at this time on our planet saying to all of us is : it is now the time to feel. You can’t keep yourself stagnant in your pain anymore. It’s time to transform.
Here is the thing : what causes the suffering is the identification with the story (“this is who I am”, “this is my life”) and the resistance to feel pain.
The fastest way out of any pain is going through it. The alchemising power of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies is incredible powerful.
What I hear the water at this time on our planet is : the feminine power of transformation is here. Rise about the pain and transform into the light.
The feminine power of transformation is one of the most feared aspects of the feminine. She’s the Dark Goddess. And she’s back, not going anywhere.
Did you notice that the #1 fear in our culture is the fear of change? the fear to the unknown?
Transformation involves destruction and creation : the Dark Goddess is here to help us remember how it is done. If we don’t claim it, nature will certainly help us to remember.
Let us remember this power again. It is time that the feminine awakens in each one of us so we can shift the state of consciousness in our planet.
Chronic pain, fatigue, breakdowns or burnouts are the universal conditions that keep us away from clarity and creativity when we most need to transform ourselves : from stagnant in the life we have created, to creatrix of the life we dream about for ourselves. Now we are ready to rise.
Let the state of the waters in our planet teach you how to listen to your emotions again.
There is an essential element that enables transformation: feeling safe. Notice what do you need in order to feel safe ? Create it for yourself.
This practice is best done in nature. It can be done on your bed, or on a warm bath.
Make the environment you are in special for you. Make sure there will be no interruptions.
Place your hands on your belly. Comfort yourself with deep breaths, inviting your body to feel safe to feel. Relax your belly.
Relax fully and completely bringing your breath and presence to each part of your body, from toes to head.
Make space in your belly to the emotions that are stored there, until you start listening to them.
Receive without judgment and criticism. Without the story. Only the emotions.
Be curious and ask : “what are you trying to teach me?” Or something similar in your own words.
Breathe patiently with this question until the “message”, your truth, your light, is revealed to you.
Stay as soft as you can, for softness is the state where alchemy happens. Softens is the receptive state of your being to start the transformation process. If tensions or resistance appears, just command “stay soft” with a gentle breath.
If strong emotions need to be released, then lie down on the Earth or your bed and allow the belly to fully soften. Direct the emotions with breath and mind into the Earth. Feel how she receives and transmutes for you.
Journal, dance or express in any way the message, your truth. Move into your day with this awareness and let it show you how you now can show up, act or talk in a new awake way.
Create your own life in the way that is most aligned to your inner truth, and see the world transform around you as you transform yourself.
Never forget that any small or big transformation you allow in your consciousness and in your life, is for the benefit of all.
