21 Aug Daily Message ~ Monday August 21, 2023
It’s Metaphysical Monday. Today we answer the question: Why am I feeling so much grief lately?
After last week’s post about the intense energies we are currently in, a lot of people commented that they’ve been feeling grief. I’ve been experiencing that myself, so I thought it would be good to explore why that is happening. (This post is about the experience of grief as part of the shift we are going through, not due to the loss of a loved one.)
As we continue to evolve and grow, we process elements of our past that we weren’t ready to tackle until now. In many cases we are feeling grief for how we were treated by others, grief for how things could have been different but weren’t, and grief for the ways we allowed ourselves to accept less than what we really deserved. If you are feeling any of this, please know it is an indicator of growth and an opportunity to ultimately come to a greater place of peace with your past.
Gabriel tells me that any great change we experience in our lives will go through the stages of grief as we have one ending before we step into a new beginning. These stages include denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. It makes sense to me if we are moving through such a huge shift in consciousness that we would experience these emotions as we wrap up that first phase of our incarnation.
The trick here is to simply know this is normal, to honour the emotions as they come up, give the part of you that is grieving the love and support you needed before and didn’t get, and understand that you are part of a process that is leading you to true acceptance. That is when you know you have completed the process and are really ready to begin the next phase.
It is also important to remember that they might not come in that exact perfect order. That’s okay if they appear differently. You aren’t doing it wrong, just some elements may have already been done, or others may need more attention.
I myself was surprised at feeling anger over my childhood. As someone who is so into spirituality, anger is something I rarely experience now, but there it was. It would have been easy to just deny it, thinking it’s not spiritual to be angry. But I realized that it was actually incredibly healthy that I was finally allowing myself to feel anger. Anger can be empowering, and can lead to standing up for yourself, especially if that is something that you hadn’t been allowed to do before. It was good to feel the anger, see the growth that was apparent for finally feeling it, and to let it go.
Depression is such a common experience during the ascension process. It is a new perspective to see it as part of a greater process that is leading you somewhere, rather than judging it as some kind of deficit within ourselves.
The more you learn to love and honour yourself, and have healthier boundaries, the more you may find yourself having these emotions. Again it is a sign of growth. Just as we can’t skip stages of growth, we can’t skip the experience of having healthy emotions, in fact, having them can be exactly what finally releases us from the past.
So be kind and patient with yourself. There is nothing wrong with you if you are going through this. Emotions are healthy to have, and some of them may have been desperate to be acknowledged by you for a very long time. Honour them one at a time, see how they are indicators of your growth, thank them for their service, and let them go. By fully processing the past you release the need to ever have that experience again, and you can look forward to a future that is full of promise.
Hey everyone! So many of us could use a little extra support in these crazy energies so I thought it would be a good time to offer a live Gabriel channel and Q and A. It will be held on Wednesday August 23 at 6:30 pm eastern time on zoom. There will be a discussion, a Gabriel channel, and everyone will have the opportunity to ask Gabriel one question. The event will be recorded. If you can’t attend live, you can submit your question to be asked during the event to firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost to attend is $33 USD. You can sign up through the link below. I hope to see you there!
