(I’m posting my weekly blog a day early since you might be needing these words right about now.)
Election day -- something many have been counting the minutes for since 2016. Since no one knows what the final outcome will be, the uncertainty is probably pretty stressful. Add this to months of a pandemic and global turmoil to the mix, you are probably in unprecedented uncertainty.
Certainly uncertainty should be the Word of the Year for 2020.
You’re told to be okay with uncertainty, just disconnect and stop doomscrowling, they say. Experts give advice meant to distract your from this in-betweeness. Spiritual types tell you to just breathe and be grateful; a few omms should do it.
In other words, just push those feelings aside and all will be fine.
Yeah, well, how’s that working for you?
Your fear-based, primitive consciousness desperately wants to know what will happen next. All The Time. When things are up in the air, it believes that the future - even if it’s just minutes from now - is uncertain. It craves predictability, frantically searches for something concrete to grab onto, even if it’s only temporary (which, by the way, it always is).
Yet, simultaneously, like watching a scary movie, it loves the drama and thrill of suspense. The heart-pounding excitement as the monster jumps out is worth the price of admission.
Back a few presidential elections ago, one of my students had a life-shifting experience while standing in the voting booth. She was politically concerned and felt extremely passionate about one of the candidates. She couldn’t imagine life if his opponent won.
As she started to mark her ballot, suddenly she was hit in the face with an ah-ha moment.
“I stood there filling out my ballot, my stomach flip-flopping in fear about who would win. Suddenly I realized that, if everything is chosen by our Higher Consciousness for the lessons it provides, whoever wins was who I chose, even if I didn’t vote for him! Even if I strongly disagree with him! Even if he didn’t receive the popular vote but won the electoral college! Phew! I felt so much better!”
What that means is, on a Higher Consciousness level, if you need to learn a particular lesson, clean something up, or have an awakening experience of some kind, it will show up in some way. This means individually and on a mass level as well.
Which could mean electing someone who pushes your buttons, giving you an opportunity to face "mirrored" aspects of yourself to help you out of denial. Or someone to help you/us clean up some long forgotten karmic situations. Or someone providing inspiration to manifest your/our Higher Purpose here.
By doing some inner delving, it’s easy to understand and see the perfection of why certain things had to happen. (I can help with that)
Or you could just stay pissed off, which might be important for some Higher Reason as well.
Another Higher Consciousness Truth is uncertainty is just forgetting your innate power to know.
Your fear-based consciousness doesn’t want you to know that you do know – that would make you way too powerful. It convinces you that you cannot know; don’t deserve to know; shouldn’t know.
Plus, it really loves the shock of surprise (remember that monster arriving?).
Each day provides opportunities to master a profound Higher Consciousness lesson: To trust and accept the wise and perfectly orchestrated timetable of life as you allow your heart to lead.
So, just for a moment, feel and embrace sitting in uncertainty as a gift leading you to become more of who you truly are. Higher Wisdom is creating the Perfect scenario to propel you/us where you/we need to go.
And, give yourself permission to be in uncertainty, to not know. That can actually allow you to see things more clearly.
Know that the Bigger Picture of this puzzle will all make sense in retrospect.
And remember: It’s only scary for a moment when that monster jumps out.
