The Great Shift Challenge, Phase 3 – Adaptation: Acceptance.

“Sometimes death is the healing.” I first heard this phrase in a Holistic Healing class, some 25 years ago. At the time, this was a shocking idea. It is conceptually antithetical to our standard medical model, wherein death is considered an enemy that must be battled at all costs. Our models are reflections of society. Many of us intellectually embrace the idea that for something new to be born, something must die. And every cell of our body is programmed to resist death, and – therefore – resist change. Herein lies the rub.

Pluto/Osiris – Lord of Death, God of Regeneration – is now retrograde. The other two planets comprising The Great Shift will soon follow – Saturn on May 10 and Jupiter on May 14. The energy of The Great Shift is turning inward.

It will be easy to be fooled while Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter are retrograde; to think that things are “returning to normal.” That will not happen. Our task is to accept the truth – our world, both individually and collectively, has changed and will never be the same.

The first part of Phase 3 has been about sitting with the reality of our situation as contrasted to how we would like things to be. Now it is time to accept this change. Each day, spend time breathing this new reality into your body – inhaling it into your cellular system. The ability to be at peace with the Now, rather than wanting and wishing for something other than what is, will gradually arise from this practice. From this place, creativity is born.

The Great Shift three (Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto) will turn direct during the three weeks stretching from mid-September to early October.
