Hurricane Ike and the Metaphysics of Change
From the Journals of DL Zeta
The events of the past few weeks have awakened me to a deeper
understanding of coming times and the transformations we are now being
asked to make within ourselves. These "inner leaps", as I like to
think of them, require us to trust in spirit more than ever before.
They ask us to believe in our own inner powers of perception, our
intuitive abilities, and a willingness to face every situation that
appears before us with every ounce of courage we can muster.
I have learned to stop judging myself for my weaknesses; I've learned
to sit with the accumulated grief and loss that spans not only my own
centuries of human experience but those we all collectively share. I
have learned to accept whatever spirit delivers to my door and if I am
unable to accept these events with grace from the moment they arrive,
I stand strong in love and patience. This helps me to come into a
place of surrender where I'm better able to see what is happening
through the eyes of spirit.
Spirit allows me to see myself in complete love and compassion, even
when younger and less aware parts of myself are lost in grief and
self-pity. I have learned I have the strength to shift my focus from
the space of my own trauma to the space of my spiritually-aligned
self. By doing this, I strengthen the connection between my inner
healer and the parts of myself that need healing.
On September 12 as Hurricane Ike barreled onto the Texas coast, my
personal reality was poised for change. A chapter I'd written in the
book of my life long ago began to crystallize. For much of this past
year, I had been seeing upcoming changes that involved expansion of my
spiritual path and purpose as well as my personal space. I began
seeing rooms that didn't yet exist. I saw how these new spaces would
allow me to expand the spiritual work I began more than a decade ago.
Spirit always brings me the images I need to work with in perfect
timing. In dream symbols, new construction symbolizes creation of new
levels of consciousness. This is the message of the visions I began
receiving earlier this year.
I want to add here that I don't believe we are "expected" to know the
exact meaning of the messages and images we receive. I have found it
is enough to acknowledge I have received them and to hold a space for
them in awareness. This is a space of alert listening and trust. I may
ask questions about the images I receive, and the questions I ask
determine the answers I receive. If I don't know what questions to
ask, I wait and listen, trusting that all will unfold perfectly in
time. For me, this is not a passive state but a place of patient
readiness to take the steps I am asked to take.
Out for my morning walk September 13, spirit gave me a time: 2 AM. I
took this to be the time when Ike would arrive at my doorstep. My
interpretation was slightly off. 2 AM is the moment the clocks
stopped, the moment the electric grid went down. It is the moment
Ike's howling winds brought down two grandmother trees on our
property, slicing neatly between past and future.
At 1:30 a.m. that morning of September 14, I woke with a knowing -- a
recognition that I had arrived at a precipice. We move through weeks,
months and even years with a vision of the shape of things to come. We
live day-to-day with the shape and feel of upcoming changes. In our
dreams, we meet new selves freshly sprung from a multitude of shaping
forces -- the many aspects of our selves that have worked in
consciousness steadily and quietly molding and giving birth to the new
version of ourselves that will in time become our new identity. Each
new identity spins out its accompanying aspects of our reality.
It sometimes seems these quantum changes arrive as quickly as the
flutter of hummingbird wings, but they are actually formed and shaped
from our own life force energy over days and weeks and years by
aspects of ourselves working steadily and quietly "behind-the-scenes"
of our daily lives.
As I stood in the ruins the morning of September 14, I could see
threads interwoven throughout my life and extending well beyond the
present moment. The shape of past, present and future revealed itself
within a moment of crystal clarity. I recognized this new development
as something I had been visiting in consciousness for quite some time.
A few days later, I wrote in an email to a friend that "It feels that
Ike was the punctuation mark to a way of being that has suddenly
slipped behind us."
Coming Full Circle -- 10 Years Later
When electric grids are down, our guides are able to come into our
energy field more fully and transform our consciousness. I first
recognized this phenomenon in my own life 10 years ago when I was iced
in alone over the holidays during an uncharacteristically brutal
Arkansas winter. After days of unrelenting snow and sleet, the
transformer outside my house sparked the frozen night with a
During a power outage that lasted for days, I began a more intense
dance with spirit. My consciousness was reprogrammed during this
"dark night of the soul." My guide complex changed, my spiritual
purpose moved front and center as my "old self" underwent a symbolic
death. At this moment in time, my conscious mind surrendered to my
highest vision. This was symbolized by a lucid dream where I was
sitting in the back seat of a car being driven by invisible
"spiritual" aspects of myself.
The Role of Resistance in Quantum Shifts
I believe it is our resistance to these changes that creates so much
turmoil. But even the turmoil is part of the plan. These moments of
turmoil are rites of passage that allow us to test all we have
learned. They allow us to test how quickly we are able to see through
the illusion and find our way back home to ourselves, our purpose, and
the true nature of our being. This is the essence of our journey
across time and the purpose of "Earth school." We make this journey
again and again throughout each lifetime. We die each moment so new
parts of ourselves can be born.
It has been a long journey these past several weeks - so much so that
the weeks seem like months. When we leave the confines of linear time,
we begin to exist in vertical time where the measuring stick is
experience rather than days and hours, weeks and years.
During these rites of passage or "dark nights of the soul," we're
given an opportunity to explore our own darkness and shine into it the
light of spirit. We are invited to go deeper, to come into greater
acceptance of the full range of our being – dark and light. If we
accept this invitation, we move into a place of more fully embracing
the new energies flooding the Earth.
In my world, the timing coincides with completing a 10-year cycle in
preparation for the beginning of a new cycle that will be the most
profound in my entire spectrum of human experience.
I want to thank all of you for sharing in this journey and for your
patience, encouragement and understanding these recent weeks as we
struggled to realign ourselves, allowing chaos to unravel the old so
the new could more fully crystallize.
Today I am beginning my new series titled Accessing Fifth-Dimensional
Consciousness, which originally took shape a year ago under the title
Entering the Portal of Earth's Future History. This new series has
taken on new name and shift in focus to incorporate my visions and
experiences of the past several weeks.
Love and Blessings
