I am having one of the most intense weeks...months? ...of my life. Just now I said to my dear friend "My gosh, I don't even know what to write,". Her very clear and succinct suggestion was, "Say: Yo bitches... shit is intense."
So, yeah...this shit IS intense.
Is your Master Plan going haywire? You are not alone. There is a lot of pressure now, and it can bring out our personal extremes. Victim-Perpetrator is a big one. We are challenged on how we deal with conflict and boundaries. The Universe might be doing a fine job of pointing out what area needs some work. Do we retract into victim? Do we go on the offense? Do we want to "correct" others" or blame? Do we apologize when we "shouldn't"?
This is a time when our rights could be challenged, too, and that could bring up some old stuff. Those of us who've had our boundaries crossed regularly---via unhealthy or abusive relationships, socio-economic issues, chronic racism or sexism, etc---may have trouble with recognizing new boundary crosses as they happen. We may react later when we feel safer again, or we may shut down. We may feel "undeserving" in some way. But this is an opportunity for rehabilitation and redefinition.
Some of us go the other way and never allow ourselves to feel vulnerable. We keep up a ready defense and will fight anyone that threatens our self concept. "Victor Syndrome", too, is being challenged, as some softer part of us gets tired of being unseen and isolated. It's hard to feel truly loved when we are always putting on a front of success and control. Being "fun" or "perky" can also be a defense in this way.
I chose an image of Ganesh for this post, because He is both the Remover of Obstacles AND the one who puts them in front of us as needed. He arrives when we are ready to embark on a new venture, but helps us with our true readiness. He is also associated with the First Chakra of foundation, survival and safety. He is a benevolent diety and can help us bring new beginnings and blessings of all kinds into our lives when honored. He is the remover of negativity. Jai Ganesha!
