It was so fitting—so appropriate for the energies of this time period that we are presently experiencing.
A few days ago our toilet backed up when flushed sending instant panic through me as I watched the water rising ever closer to the bowl rim. Luckily it stopped before overflowing, but those are the moments when you realize how instantly susceptible to life’s little surprises you can be.
Risking the “too-much-information” explanation, I will say that those of us in rural areas tend to have septic tanks buried out beyond the house perimeter to contain and disperse waste waters, rather than using a city’s sewer lines to which most folks are accustomed.
And those of us who DO have septic tanks know that after a few years of usage, those tanks need to be pumped out (also fortunately there are companies that do that particular septic-tank servicing). Once the storage tank is pumped out, it usually takes care of the “toilet won’t flush” problem.
But occasionally, there are those property owners who can tell horror stories of what happens when their septic-tank, water-drainage lines plug up and have to be re-dug.
Yes, in essence the drain-line trenching firm “reams you a new one,” both financially in your pocket book and aesthetically across your carefully-manicured property. It looks like giant moles invaded your yard digging huge, mounded tunnels extending a hundred feet in three different directions.
Or as I will call it: “Welcome to my Monday.”
But even as the trencher grinds away out there spitting our carefully-coiffured grass into unbreakable clods and large dirt piles, I can’t help but recognize the metaphor playing out before my eyes: Sometimes our energy bodies are so built up with energy blockages and stagnant memories/emotional triggers that we have a hard time releasing those things that no longer serve us. We have a hard time “letting go” of the wastes that we need to flush out of our minds and our lives.
Right now throughout the world, these are the “blockage-clearing” energies that we are experiencing globally, regionally, and personally. We’re all energetically getting our pipes cleaned and our drain lines reamed. And it isn’t usually pleasant to have this done either mentally or physically, but it NEEDS to be done so we can eliminate the toxins from our lives.
The good news is that energetically, this cosmic purifying/purging phase won’t last forever; and that eventually once the wastes are finally gone, we can reset our lives in a new and more productive direction—preparing us for the next adventure, or exciting discovery, or educational experience that helps us to grow in awareness and to evolve in understanding.
Because that’s the true advantage that proper “flushing” provides us: It gives us a clean, fresh start for the next phase of our lives.
Or as I also will soon call it: “Hello Tuesday.”
