Prior to the pandemic, my “Spidey Sense” kept telling me that something big was about to happen. Something global, a looming crisis, a worldwide shake-up event. Something that would usher in a massive planetary shift, or at least provide a loud wake-up call. Something we couldn’t ignore.
So, when a microscopic virus affected the entire planet, I wasn’t too surprised. In fact, I mused that something so small could be the cause of such overwhelming turmoil.
Now, after almost a year reprieve, the mountain community where I live is digging out from a colossal blizzard. I'm told nothing comparable has happened in almost forty years.
Truthfully, I wasn't too shocked. Things always repeat when lessons are ignored. Mother Nature is trying her darndest to get some big messages over to us. Are we getting them?
This unprecedented weather event was more than just an annoying, challenging, snow dump. I see it as yet another pie-in-the-face moment trying to give important spiritual messages to a captive, snowed in audience.
What messages you ask?
A big one was about stepping up.
On my steep, dead-end rural street, a small group of neighbors, most I've never met, started a text thread. No matter anyone’s personal situation, unselfish ways to help were offered. Shovels were flying; groceries delivered; gas lines inspected; cars dug out; wellness check-ins abounded.
We were all reminded about what life is about: Caring, helping, being present.
Enduring this event is helping us re-discover our human connection. Several feet of snow trapping us inside demonstrated that we are so much more than just fear-based, primitive, self-concerned humans. We all functioned from a place of true compassion, concern and desire to assist.
Both the pandemic and our 'snowmagedon' are shifting us from our core. We are being escorted into an expansive, awakened place of empowerment, authentically connecting to others as well as finally hearing whispers from our higher consciousness.
It is up to us to take these lessons down our mountain.
What loving, giving, caring actions can you take in your community? How can you get past perceived differences and connect with others? Maybe even the world?
Fear does not have to be the Big Boss in charge of your life. When you experience your true connection with all other humans, when you know we are all made of the same energy – love - fear takes a back seat in your life.
You are here to bring your unique contribution to the whole. It’s embedded in your hard drive. Your higher consciousness continuously vibrates with it, putting you on an ongoing quest to remember even if you don’t realize it.
If nothing else was achieved from this remarkable storm, creating a more supportive, caring community is quite the gift. Getting beyond divisiveness and tapping into compassion has birthed an innate desire to help.
We won’t forget what these snowed-in weeks felt like. We will be telling stories to our grandchildren about that Big Storm in 2023, the one that brought us to our knees yet uplifted us to help others.
We will remember our inner knowingness that tried to guide us to finally live our true purpose.
And we will be grateful for the ten feet of snow gifted perfectly by Mother Nature to help us awaken.
