July and August are similar to going through a Black Hole. Everything that is not aligned with Trueness is being stripped away. The scope of this letting go is absolutely unprecedented. It's far greater than we can presently imagine. It is astoundingly thorough.
During our passage through duality, we were like trash compactors, stuffing in heaps of garbage for years and years, for lifetimes, until mountains of repressed emotions, broken hearts, memories, fears, discarded beliefs and a clutter of experiences were stacked up inside us in tightly compressed layers. In July, we felt a sense of urgency to get serious and took the letting go process to a whole new level. We pried open the rusty lids of our internal trash compactors and started removing the compressed garbage, layer by layer.
At first, this was heavy, dirty work that often flattened us; we could only do it in short spurts. Sometimes, it was so intense that it felt like we were undergoing surgery. But as more layers were removed, it became increasingly easier. As our beings were lightened of all that compressed, old stuff, the process of letting go of the past actually became energizing and fun!
Now, we are getting to the super compacted layers, the ones that were so hidden at the bottom that we had forgotten they were there. These are the ones that most need to be removed. Cleaning out these old, unconscious patterns, actions, motivations, fears and suppressed emotions is absolutely necessary. We cannot be unconscious about what is inside us any more.
Fortunately, it is the perfect time to do this. What is different now is that all the expired elements within us and within our lives really want to leave us. Our Trueness really wants to come forth. All our compacted garbage knows that it cannot remain in the body of a True One. This is why we are being given so many perfect experiences and golden opportunities to dredge up the bottom layers. This is a mammoth completion of the old.
These expired elements can take many forms. It can be as simple as getting rid of physical possessions that we no longer need. Or they can be old behaviors or fears that have limited us from expressing our Trueness. Or they might be extremely subtle forms of manipulation that are so well hidden that we weren't aware of them. Whatever they are, we all have much to release.
Many of the old judgments that we long carried are now being stripped off of us. Some of these came cleverly disguised as personal preferences. There were certain tasks that we hated doing and we did our utmost to resist them. However, we are finally seeing that our resistances are only limiting us and making us weaker.
This letting go process is highlighted in my life right now as I am sorting through all my possessions and letting go of many beautiful treasures and sacred objects that I no longer need. It is time for them to go to their new homes. I'm also sorting through all my file cabinets full of old writings, files full of receipts and interesting information that I've gathered, and throwing out garbage bags full of it. This process isn't just throwing away papers from my file cabinets, but it's a complete releasing of the memories, emotions and experiences of those years. I realize that anything worthwhile from those past experiences has already become a thread of my being. It is part of who I am now. So it's no longer necessary to remember the details or carry the memories with me.
I'm increasingly realizing that I don't need to take everything with me to my New Life. In fact, the less that I take, the newer my New Life will be. This is true for all of us.
We are not just getting rid of the obvious, expired elements and duality-based beliefs and behaviors. We are also sorting through layers and layers of things that we previously honored -- objects of beauty, old tools, skills and ways of doing things, and some of our most sacred possessions. This is because some of them pin us into our old level.
Look at all your possessions and see why they are with you. Do they still give you energy or do you just have them out of habit? Some things might have fears attached to them that if we let them go, we will be nothing. They identify who we are. Make conscious decisions as a True One of what to keep.
It's also very helpful at this time is to consciously unpin things in your home environment that have held the energies into old positions. Such as rearranging the furniture, taking down pictures, changing the position of your desk, painting a new color on the wall.
The more we do this, the more we will see stunning changes in our lives. During August and September some huge burdens that we've carried with us for a long time will be lifted from us. Some of these were the basic blocks that constructed our old personas. Suddenly, these old basic blocks are gone and we are free!
At first, we may not realize the full scope of what has happened. It's similar to wearing a cast on our leg that we've had for a very long time. Although the old broken bone has long healed, we forgot that we could remove the cast. Then, suddenly it is gone!
When this happens, we may still continue walking as if we are wearing a cast. It might take us a while to realize how free we have become. But when we do, we will walk more elegantly, walk farther, walk faster, even dance!
The people around us might also have been wearing casts. That's why we were together; we all walked at the same, slow pace. Now, until they remove their casts, we realize that we can't walk with them anymore.
Once our old casts are off, we can choose new directions, such as climbing a mountain, that we wouldn't have considered before. We will be astonished at the full extent of the changes that have taken place within us. We are immeasurably lighter and finally ready for the New.
