As we shift our consciousness to its new expanded view, we discover everything around us shifts and changes too. Sometimes it seems one thought, word or action has set off a domino effect, and that everything has come tumbling down.
Our consciousness can be thought of as a spectrum of colours, like a rainbow. Each strand of the rainbow is coloured by the vibrational frequencies it holds, and depending on where we sit in the rainbow at any given time, our reality is mapped to that band of colour and the potentials it contains.
When we have been seated in one band of colour for many years, perhaps a lifetime (or hundreds of lifetimes) we become very familiar with the reality that develops within the potentials of that colour. We feel safe and secure in this reality, and we tend to become quite resistant to changing anything in our lives; our work, our friendships, our food, our lifestyle…in fact we like things just the way they are! Just like the Emerald City in The Wizard of Oz, where everything was green and The Wizard was deemed to be the oracle of wisdom.
That is, until Dorothy came along and challenged the old beliefs held by the people of Oz. Along the way she helped her new friends, Scarecrow, Lion and Tin Woodman reclaim their tools of empowerment; intellect, courage and a heart. With her delightful joy, self-belief and a keen sense of truth, she helped others to move into another colour band on the spectrum, where they could see so much more than from where they had previously been. And they were ready to do this, otherwise, Dorothy would not have appeared among them.
Our teachers and messengers come in many shapes and forms, and always at the time of our readiness for change. Take note of who is showing up in your life, and look to see if they are a messenger for you. Especially if you find them challenging on some level, as this is a sure sign you have both asked for this situation to arise, so that healing of an old wound, the balancing or Energies can occur. The ones who seem to be the greatest thorn in your side are also the greatest gifts as they are the catalysts of change!
You may have noticed that the challenges coming to you seem to be thick and fast now, with very little resting space in between. It may seem that you are coming unstuck with the people who have been in your life for a long time, or that great changes seem to have been forced upon you. You are not alone; this is happening to humanity all around the globe. Just look at the changes the weather elements are creating for millions of people. We can be grateful in New Zealand that we are not in war zones or extreme weather zones yet change is happening here too through earthquakes, flooding, health issues, career changes, values, priorities alliances and relationships.
Change can be embraced and celebrated! If change has come into your life then you have asked for it on the Inner Planes. Congratulations! Something is ready to be healed, balanced and released…well done! And it can happen from one moment to the next, as consciousness can shift in a Nano- second, creating a change in all of ‘your dominoes’, the various aspects of your life, that were stacked against it.
Now, look to see which band of colour your dominoes have fallen into…and which band of colour do you now choose for yourself, now that you can see further than you could before? Which part of the rainbow does your heart wish to sit in, and which dominoes do you wish to take with you? You may discover that to move to the colour band of your heart’s desire, that some of your dominoes simply can’t go there…they are of a different vibrational frequency…now is the time to honour, then release that which you cannot take with you as your move forwards in your ever-evolving consciousness. Celebrate what has occurred and give thanks to those who helped you make this mighty leap into another band of colour, to another realm of possibilities and potentials to explore and evolve in. Rest in the peace that follows the upsets of change, and revel in the freedom and expanded possibilities that your courage is rewarded with!
And remember, the only thing that is certain…is change!
