The weather here was crazy a few weeks ago. In coastal California we don't get much thunder and lightning... but one night there was a storm that went on for hours. I've lived most of my life here... and never seen anything like it. I heard lots of others say the same thing.
In parallel with the intense weather, it seemed to me that relationships got pretty intense too. Struggles between and with my family members took on their own drama... which, pushed all of my old buttons... things I've been working on for years. It brought back some of my old self-talk which was not nice... and for a few days last week I felt like I was going a little loco. I didn't feel like myself.
And then I started having dreams. Some were a bit daydreamy when I'd let my mind wander... some were visions during acupuncture... some were dreams at night. In the end it came down to a massive clearing and shifting of energy for me.
I met the Bone Woman.

Then, she placed a red, heart-shaped rock at my heart. It was vibrant, strong, and beautiful. I felt complete again, if a little raw and edgy with my new being. I'm still getting used to the new deal, it's still easy to cry over things... sometimes not even knowing why, exactly. I think it's just part of the transition... becoming aware of new reference points... and trusting it to settle in.
I'm still processing... but feeling much more energetic again. I got sick a few weeks ago... and it's taken a long time to kick the cold/flu... it processed through as did the rest of this stuff. So the whole upheaval felt like it was not only my whole being (emotion, spirit, physical) and family level AND the environment. Did you feel it too?
