How to Recognize Growth & Expansion as Spirit

Growth and expansion. Emerging.“My destination is no longer a place, rather a new way of seeing.”~Marcel Proust

There are personal messages in all that you see and all you are aware of. Your growth and expansion as a being is about increasing awareness and learning how to use what’s going on “outside” of you to heal and release those things “inside”.

Growth and expansion is really a “clearing out” to making more room for you come IN. The more of your energy you’re able to bring IN the more growth and expansion.

Recognizing those areas where you are growing and expanding as well as those messages which help guide your direction are found in your day-to-day circumstances and what you are attracting into your life at any given moment. You can also choose to use every outer circumstance for inner growth.

For example: They are replacing the windows in my building. The replacements are thicker, sturdy, a different style and of course, they are new and totally clean. The project will be messy, inconvenient, at times uncomfortable, and I will have to actually leave my home for at least one day while they take out the old and replace with the new.

Now that is enough in and of itself however it’s not just the window replacement. The condo next to me recently purchased and gutted it for renovation. Hmmm more construction. Add to that the building next door is in process of being torn down to make room for a new store and 40 story building. Hmmmm more construction! I’m surrounded by major construction projects all of which are in process of tearing everything down to make space for sparkly, new.

“Often, it’s not about becoming a new person, but becoming the person you were meant to be, and already are, but don’t know how to be.”~Heath L. Buckmaster

How do we use the construction to recognize and confirm our growth and expansion? Well, for starters, we are all construction projects. We start asking questions. Where are our walls? What are the limits that stop us from building a beautiful new building. What are we in the middle of now? What walls and limits are solidly in place either by our choosing or because, at some level, we consciously or unconsciously agreed to not go beyond those walls?

When we speak of windows we are reminded of seeing with more clarity and certainty. What if we viewed our inner and outer world with an expanded perspective? What if we choose to see beyond our current horizons? What if it’s more about building upon a more solid foundation and emerging?

Growth and expansion is rarely convenient, comfortable, neat and tidy. More often than not, as with all construction projects, it is not only the opposite but just like construction projects, there are twists and turns and possible delays!

“I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”~Rainer Maria Rilke

Recognizing your growth and expansion is no different from asking questions, reviewing where you’ve been, what you’ve learned and acknowledging how far you have already come. Life is about becoming. It is a learning experience always under construction.

Live your questions and be aware of the answers you are receiving. Growth and expansion is not necessarily about a bolt of lightning or an epiphany, although it could be. Most times you don’t have to go any farther “than your own backyard” as Dorothy states in the Wizard of Oz.

What you attract, the thread of commonality that runs through your day-to-day life, is how you start to recognize where you are and what you’re working on. What you are going through shows you what you CAN and probably are, working on to move forward.

See through new eyes! Build upon a new foundation! Live your questions! Emerge and embrace the person you are meant to be.~Shine Your Light Debbie

Super (New) Moon + Solar Eclipse + Equinox! Ride the Wave on March 20, 2015!

Super Moon, equinox, solar eclipse. Ride the waves on March 20As if it’s not enough to handle the energy of a super moon, a new moon, an equinox or a solar eclipse individually we will have a rare opportunity to experience all three, in the same week, on the same day!

Hold on to your hats folks the wave of energy is on its way! Actually the energy is already effecting us but with a bit of self-care you will successfully ride the wave of this energetic tsunami!

First let’s look at the energy of the Super Moon. A super moon occurs when the moon is at or closest to the earth in a particular orbit. In short, what’s going to happen during this eclipse is the Earth, Moon and Sun will all be in a line, with Moon in its nearest approach to Earth. This is a great time to look at your spiritual alignment between body and spirit as well as your alignment with the earth.

Riding the energy wave doesn’t mean you let go of your grounding! In fact it’s just the opposite. With all the energy stirred up and getting ready for release it’s important you re-ground and center yourself in present time. You may have already noticed your meditation space shifting in the past couple of days (I know I have.) If you’ve noticed a shift or you find it difficult to meditate just remind yourself you’re feeling the approach of the energy wave.

Another aspect caused by a Super Moon is heightened emotions. If you’ve found yourself extra emotional and there’s no reason for it, this might be why. Again, check your grounding and give those emotions space to flow. Like the tides, our emotions ebb and flow. Let them.

Now, let’s look at the energy of a solar eclipse. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly in between the earth and the sun. It momentarily blocks out the light from the sun.

Eclipses signify endings and beginnings. They literally ‘eclipse out’ things in your life that no longer serve you and free up your energy to create anew. The equinox is a wonderful time to create and grow new experiences, ideas and to finally start those projects you’ve been ready to put into motion.

The eclipse will help you move out anything that’s been standing in your way but as with all healing energy work, you have to WANT to release what no longer serves you or gets in your way. There’s power in this eclipse but you don’t have to get steam rolled under it. Choose to ride the wave and enter a new beginning for yourself!

Another important note is this particular cosmic event (according to NASA) will have an effect on the power systems; It will have a direct effect on everyone who is sensitive to energy. Keep breathing and take solace that after this 2015 equinox eclipse, the next solar eclipse at the March equinox will happen on March 20, 2034. Then there will only be two more in this century: 2053 and 2072.

The energy of the Spring Equinox is all about planting the seeds, growth and renewal. The energetic combination will truly offer us a gift. We all can change directions, illuminate the darkness, release that which no longer serves and warm our hearts and minds with the coming sun.

So grab your surf board, give yourself a new grounding cord and lets ride the wave of this one! Nothing but leaving the past behind, opening up your creativity, and riding off into new, brighter horizons!~Shine Your Light Debbie
