Been listening to the one astrologer that I do listen to, Kaypacha, this morning. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_cXUPpJr24&feature=share ) I rarely miss his weekly energy report to help me understand ‘what the heck’ is going on around me—especially when everything seems to be so chaotic, like it is now.
When things get crazy in the world I can often feel the energy instability vibrating within me—like I am a tuning fork that starts sympathetically vibrating to the tone of another one near. It’s very hard to hold your own vibration when such powerful disruptions are toning all around you. So I like to hear if he is picking up the same thing with an astrological reason for it, or if it is just my own sensors that are being triggered by my immediate environment.
This morning he confirmed that it’s a pretty disruptive energy time for all of us; and then he talked about a subject that I’ve mentioned prior about how each of us perceives, reacts to, and lives our own version of reality that is slightly skewed from the collective reality the group agrees to adopt.
To be specific, late in the video he talks about how individually we create our own subjective reality which is then at times in conflict with our group shared reality. Then he asked ‘Which reality is more real, and which is less real?’ Good questions.
If YOU are feeling a particular version of REALITY, how can that NOT be real for you, eh? Exactly.
Well those simple but complex questions were fairly pertinent to what I personally had been experiencing lately, both in my own life and with my friends’ concept of reality veering slightly from my personal version.
When you have friends who also are energy sensitive and are into various forms of energy work themselves, then gathering together with them and discussing THAT group’s shared reality can be quite a trip. It can be hard to even agree on the parameters of that group’s reality experience because each of us has slightly different sensing abilities (clairaudient, clairvoyant, clairsentient, natural medium, …etc.)
Our group discussions make for an interesting afternoon, for sure.
But the one question I had at our last gathering is still bothering me, because when “reality” becomes so fluid and malleable for someone that they begin to drastically differ from the group version—especially THAT group’s version, is it cause to be concerned for that person?
To this question I would say unequivocally, YES. I had, and still have, a concern for one of our group members at our last gathering.
It is possible to get so “out there” in one’s concept of reality that one can break completely from the collective reality. And it can be extremely traumatic for the person experiencing that break—which is often called a “psychotic break.” And that traumatic break is cause for concern, and often requires a medical professional’s help.
Here’s the definition of psychotic break from the online medical dictionary: “Psychosis is a symptom or feature of mental illness typically characterized by radical changes in personality, impaired functioning, and a distorted or nonexistent sense of objective reality.”
That “objective reality” is the group agreed-upon version.
To continue: “Psychosis is a loss of contact with reality. It usually includes: Delusions: False beliefs about what is taking place or who one is. Hallucinations: Seeing or hearing things that aren’t there.”
Well, when you are psychically gifted like many of my friends are, you often see things and hear things that many folks don’t. So there is such a fine line between recognizing your innate psychic gifts and not veering too far out into the ‘realm of all possibilities,’ because that realm does exist.
Right now, in these energies and this astrological time, it is hard for all of us to maintain our bearings. It’s hard to stay tethered to solid land when your personal reality balloon starts lifting away into the ethers.
So if you, dear reader, are feeling untethered to land right now, or if you are feeling extremely depressed, or possibly even feeling suicidal, then recognize that it may be necessary to reach out to others who can help you get through this difficult time in your life. You aren’t alone in what you are feeling—not at all. It’s a tough time right now to stay tethered to this group reality when it’s so unpleasant to be here. But we all have to find a way to tough it out until the energies change for the better. And they will change.
To reach out for help from others doesn’t mean you are weak or unstable, it just means that sometimes we need a bit of help to make sure that we can reel ourselves back in and dock safely back on earth for the remainder of our stay here.
Hang in there. It will get better.
And if your reality is making you question your sanity or question whether or not you wish to stay in this mutually-agreed-upon reality, then don’t be shy, ask for help to make sense of what you may be experiencing. You likely aren’t alone in the questions that you might be having. Especially now.
