Power and control.
That’s what 2020 is all about. A fight for power and control. On a global and a personal level.
The happenings this year aren’t random. We’re living a big moment in history. And since we’re right in the thick of it, it’s hard to make sense of what’s going on. In the small glimmers of understand I’ve had so far, I feel the universe is shifting. Is demanding a shift. Is hurtling us towards a higher vibration. Whether we want to or not. Whether it’s scary or not. Whether we see the need for it or not.
We’ve been complacent for way too long, and now we’re being forced to do what us humans wouldn’t do for ourselves. To right the wrongs. To step in love, peace and compassion.
But forced or no, change is ugly and it’s surely hard. And the last dying gasps are always particularly ugly.
Hence, the year 2020.
To those of you who are shining a light into the musty corners of the room—who are standing up and being a voice that’s shouting Yes! to the universe’s demands— it’s likely that your relationship base is shrinking because of it, and I’m sorry for that.
Many people prefer pretense, even when it’s killing them. Speaking truth to those types makes them do funny things. They cling harder to the old ways, to the harmful programming. Stand in victim. Attack. Cast you from their lives. Say you’re nuts.
Here’s to you if you have the courage to stand alone. The truth is, the universe will get her way. She always does. And so it’s time get on with it, because our thinking is skewed. As my spiritual counselor and sister Toby says, true power is not about control—it’s about empowering others.
