“Most of the fears in life are only the scarecrows; once you realise this the field is all yours to benefit from. “ Mehmet Murat ildan.
Last month, on the last Sunday of August, it would have been our annual Wattle Festival. This colourful event in Hurstbridge normally attracts thousands of people from all over Melbourne but, like most events this year, it was cancelled.
Instead what popped up all over town were Scarecrows, more than 150 of them. Here’s a few.
I’ll admit scarecrows are not really my thing. I find them a bit creepy. Yet here they were: on the front lawns of homes, in front of businesses, out the front of the medical centre, the hairdresser, at the mechanics, in our town centre … they were everywhere. So much creativity.
Some were bizarre, some quite extraordinary and many were kinda cute. One thing was certain, every single scarecrow was uniquely individual.
Whacky and Woken up
This one is aptly named the Whacky Wattle Walker and it sits on a hilly road that I walk up most days. I pass very few people, mainly birds, kangaroos in nearby paddocks and the occasional echidna. It’s quiet time to appreciate nature and think about life and how much it’s changed.
Apart from my husband losing his job, my own world is peaceful, in this semi rural environment. Melbourne, however, less than an hour away, barely resembles the city it was six months ago. Once touted as the World’s most Liveable City these days it’s heart and soul has taken a huge battering.
One of the hardest things to get a handle on during this time has been the narrative behind the fear. At the start, in the first lock-down back in March, when we knew little about Covid, it seemed right to do whatever it took to “flatten the curve”, to protect ourselves and society by “doing the right thing.”
Now, almost six months later, we know so much more. We know this is not just about a virus. We know about the lies and the dark forces that have infiltrated our world. We know about Plandemic and the massive mind control tactics that’s turned Melbourne into a testing ground and a police state. It sounds like a movie doesn’t it, with a script right out of Hollywood, an illusion.
I understand that it’s not easy for everyone to see behind the illusion. But arguing over differences doesn’t bring us together, it only causes division. And at the end of the day all of us want the same thing, to stand united in love, for a better future and a better world, because right now it feels very off balance
Do you feel like you’re living in the Truman Show, like something is keeping us from seeing what’s really out there? Where everything we thought we knew is not and nothing is as it seems.
Coming to our own truth
Beyond the surface control there’s a much larger process at play here and a major transformation taking place. Mother Earth is going through some significant and magnificent changes to her surface. There’s so much happening now, that’s leading up to an important spiritual event at Uluru in December. And it’s all shifting our planet. And whether you believe it or not, we’re all a part of this movement.
Every day we have a choice as to how we view the current state of our world. We’ve been made to believe, through ongoing narratives and repetitive fear mongering, that we’re victims and have no choice. This dark energy would love us to stay asleep and insecure in every aspect of our lives but the truth is very different and many of us are now waking up to the grand illusion.
“The truth is always the truth. Once you have a knowing in your heart you can’t unknow it.”
So how do we move forward when we feel as though we have no control? Fellow blogger Brad from Writing to Freedom asked me in a recent comment: “I’m wondering how to resist control and uphold freedom while flowing. Let me know if you figure it out.”
Well, I haven’t got it figured out but I’ve got some ideas.
The Power of Love
The strength and the power of love will allow us to weather everything, what’s been and what’s coming.
Know that we ARE free. Do you feel free? Despite what we’ve been told, we always have a choice. And our choices dictate our reality. We can look at the bigger picture. Out in nature can you feel the love from Mother Earth, no matter what we’ve done to her? Tap into her simplicity and wonder. There’s strength when we understand that we’re connected to everything.
Turn off the negativity. That means giving the main stream scaremongering news the flick. We can be aware of what’s going on, without becoming consumed, because awareness is knowledge. Be discerning. Take what serves you and discard the rest. And tap into your intuition.
The most powerful position we can hold is a positive one. Know in your heart that everything is going to be okay. That amidst all the chaos the light always wins and good trumps evil. I recently read something that really resonated with me.
“When we get distracted find your centre … The light at the end of the tunnel is freedom. It is calm. The bumps and obstacles in the tunnel are distractions. To keep us scared. To keep us angry. To keep us frustrated. The energy of those feelings allow the distractions to live longer. The energy of hope and excitement of what is to come dissipates the distractions. “
We’re living in an extraordinary time and our reactions to what’s unfolding now will dictate our perception of reality and our future.
Be mindful of what you give your attention to. Everything you see, hear, say, taste and feel has an energy which either brings you up or drags you down. Choose things, people and situations that feel good and lift you up.
Pay attention to the little signs, symbols, people you meet and books you’re attracted to and the way you feel. Follow your excitement. Your highest excitement and bliss is truly your compass.
Connect with the stillness because our power really does lie within. If we’re always in our head, with mind chatter taking over, we’re never going to be hear our intuition. Take the time to get quiet and into a personal connection with your own energy and that force that’s greater than yourself.
Know that you matter. This is a time we can influence, whether we choose to believe it or not. Honour yourself and your truth. Have the courage to voice your opinion with friends and family who think differently but respect that each person’s journey is different.
Find the joys. Play and laugh. Cuddle your pets. Connect with your favourite person on the phone.Crank up the music, it’s so powerful. For my birthday next week I plan on having a Dance party with a few Freedom songs on the play list. Any day can be dance day!
Live each moment with intention. With eyes wide open and a heart full of love, give thanks for the miracle of each day. Keep your vibration high as we all raise the consciousness of this planet.
Life is shifting and is about to be turned on it’s heels in the most extraordinary way. And one thing is clear, light cuts through the darkness. Love always triumphs.
Envision a New Earth
We can choose to see the light in all situations including the ones that look destructive from the outside. Everything is happening for a reason. With our free will we can consciously picture a world that’s full of love, fairness, success and security, wonder and joy, peace and harmony. We have a lot to catch up on because we’ve done a lot of rotten stuff to this planet but it’s time for everything to change. Humanity is taking baby steps and together we’re speaking up, finding our power and stepping out.
When we find our power and create unity we lift the vibration of the earth.
Slowly but surely, as we trust in a bigger picture, we will come into our sovereignty.
Remember, amongst it all, to honour the process and the journey. It’s okay to feel all the messed up emotions and pissed off feelings that come from being human. There will continue to be spotlights placed on dark energy, on pain, suffering and strife in the coming months. But when we don’t succumb and instead focus on love we’re choosing higher frequencies. And we’re on our way to something greater, to ascension. Do you feel it?
Mysteries are unravelling. The earth is healing. And humanity will be freed as we stand on the brink of a new and wondrous timeline.
Have faith, trust and above all love.
