Lately I’ve been experiencing a feeling of being at the edge.
Some days this feeling is heavy and deep with grief but other days it is excited and anticipating. The extremes, though, have been very interesting to observe. This observation created an opportunity for me to pause and reflect on what might be going on below the surface.
At first, I looked at these emotions as separate experiences. Some days feeling low, clearing through old patterns of pain, missed expectations and sadness. And other days, feeling the high vibrational energy and everything in amazing flow.
Then it dawned on me.
Instead of two separate experiences, these feelings were really a single, whole experience. More specifically, the edge of these highs and lows IS the experience.
I wanted to understand this information better, so asked the Greater Consciousness to give me some deeper information.
Here’s the channeled message I received:
The time for compartmentalizing is over.
Your experience, your conditioning has created a scenario where you have been forced to choose sides. Something is either good or bad in your judgment. Things are either right or wrong. This black and white thinking has been around for generations but is only now truly being looked at in a way that will allow for both the breakdown of the old but also the birth of the new.
You have never been just one thing or the other.
You are not A or B. You cannot exist in only one extreme without being equally footed in the other. Call it whatever you will. Judge it as you must. The reality here for you to now understand is that both are the same. It is all part of the whole. There is no separateness when it comes to who you are or what you are experiencing.
This can push against the mainstream beliefs.
You were taught that the end game is to be happy; happiness is the goal. That negative feelings somehow equated to failure, your failure. The story convinces you that if you are not feeling great all the time, it is your own fault. This is a belief so prevalent in your society that most people cannot even begin to contemplate another way of being.
Yet without the understanding of your wholeness and the allowing for the range, from edge to edge, of your experiences to be present at the same time, you are missing some of the biggest opportunities for evolution.
This is where the juice is.
This is where the manifestation of your highest is born. In the space between the good and bad, the light and dark; but also, not separate from those things. It’s part of the whole.
Lean into this today.
Do you feel it? There is an aliveness. A spark. Anxiety and excitement. All melded together in a way that could almost be described as painful pleasure. A longing. A desire. This feeling is your soul pull. This is the place where your inner being is working with you, talking to you, pulling you to your next moment. This is the space where all of creation is born; within and around you. It is of you but not of you at the same time.
It doesn’t fit into a box or social norms. In fact, this idea pushes against the very edges that you established to control your situation, to keep yourself safe. It’s like a tightrope walk over the Grand Canyon. And there’s no net.
But what if…
Just for the moment you invited both edges of these feelings to be present at the same time. Looking left to the edge of your deep grief and sorrow. Looking right to the highest highs of love, joy and passion.
You don’t need to do anything here. You have nothing to fix. Nothing to shift. Nothing to change.
Living is here in the center.
In the place where both ends meet. It is the way of coming home to ourselves. To recognize that we are not broken. That there is nothing inherently wrong with us. We are simply being asked to live in the entire experience.
Can you open to this possibility today? Start by simply intending to explore this idea further and see what shows up for you.
There's magic here!
