Karma Clearing Pt 1: What I Was Doesn’t Matter. It’s Who I AM Today, That Counts
For many of us, the human year from the blood moon which occurred at the end of September 2015 into the September eclipse season of 2016 has been a time of great cleansing and growth. There have been increased lightcode downloads, frequent and powerful solar flares, rare planetary alignments, and an intense Lion’s Gate window. We are now moving into a new moon, solar eclipse combination on September 1 that signals a new wave in the spiral or our healing. Together they have formed a powerful cycle of clearing and healing which has asked us to go ever deeper into our own energetic stories, creating space to release that which no longer serves us.
The Lion’s Gate energy we’ve received this August has borne a close relationship to karmic past. We have been prompted to ask questions about our karmic load like: What are we holding on to? What do we need to let go of? Are all agreements necessary? As this energy has played out, I have been engaged with intense and frequent rounds of karmic exploration and release. Many of us are undergoing or will undergo a similar clearing in the coming year leading into Lion’s Gate 2017. You see, many of us on this earth are holding onto promises made in times past that are actually holding us back from aspects of our collective expansion. As a result, I offer this karma clearing series in the humble hope that exposure to my process will help you understand your own. Today I offer my first, and perhaps most revelatory insight, “What I was doesn’t matter. It’s who I am today, that counts”.
In the past two years, I have spent a lot of time trying to bring together the threads of who I was in past lives in order to understand myself in the now. Through that, I felt that I would be able to tap into the specific role I am here to play on earth in this moment. You see, I felt that knowing about all that I had been ‘then’ would somehow impact the way I was able to perform in the ‘now’.
Throughout the course of this ceremony, I went through lives and saw pieces of what I had lived. Agreements that I made. Do you know what I realized? That although all of the things I was before were a part of my spiritual story, none of them necessarily have to directly bleed into who I am today. I was all of those things - but what really counts is WHO I AM RIGHT NOW. IN THIS MOMENT. Certainly, past knowledge forms the bedrock of my action, but connecting with it is much more a matter of opening my heart and mind than it is 'knowing' (in human terms) the places that my soul has been to gain it.
Thinking about it, this is a pattern that many of us fall into to some degree. We let the stories of our past (in this or other lives) take space in our identity claims of who we are today. Certainly, that process of self understanding and reflection is an important part of learning the influences that come to bear on your life. HOLDING ON TO these things, however, can become a restricting factor if you let it. So do you know what I did when I saw those bits, this time? I let them go. And you know what? I feel more free in this moment than I have in a very long time. It all happened but you know what? None of it matters. When we are in our light and our truth, we will ALWAYS know precisely what to do.
My mantra as I continue passing my attachment to the past (and the attachments I made while there) is a simple one that I felt compelled to share:
What I was doesn’t matter. It’s who I am today, that counts.
