I feel like the last few weeks have gone by in a fog; with my brain slipping between this moment in time, and that of timeless eternity. The fog has made it hard to focus, my story telling mind; so instead of pressing it…I have just chosen to exist, and take the downtime while it presents itself. This is not entirely surprising as we are quickly approaching Beltaine (May 1st), a time when the Veil between the worlds is thinnest. Like Halloween, Beltaine is a thin time; a time when the barrier between the worlds of the Living, Dead, and otherworldly beings (Fae Folk), is so thin that they overlap. During thin times; people who normally do not experience Psychic phenomenon, often find themselves experiencing the unknown. For those of us, who are Psychically sensitive, these thin moments can be a bit overwhelming.
Beltaine is one of the 8 Celtic holidays, that make up the Wheel of the Year. Traditionally taking place on May 1st, Beltaine is an ancient fertility holiday in which people gather to bless the land.
Thin moments such as Beltaine; often take on a sort of timelessness, and are referred to as Betwixt & Between. Betwixt & Between means neither here/nor there. Dawn & Dusk are times of Betwixt & Between; for they are neither night, nor day….but stand in the space between. Beltaine & Halloween are also such moments, for they are the pause, between Summer & Winter, and Winter & Summer. Memories from this life, past lives and the memories held by the Spirit of place, often pop into our mind at these moments…for memory also exists in the Betwixt & Between. All of this adds up`to the whirlwind feeling that often accompanies early Spring.
Collectively we humans spin through cycles together (I am sure any Astrologers among the Reading audience would agree). These cycles are not only influenced by the planets and stars, but the shifting of our living planet. These moments of pause or Betwixt & Between, are powerful moments Spiritually, but can often leave us feeling unbalanced. Working regularly with the public, I have witnessed a higher level of chaos or imbalance this Spring then in years past. I believe this is in part due to Psychic Evolution…that’s right Folks; I believe as a species, we humans are evolving right here/right now.
So what do we do about it?
Frankly, there is no putting it back in the box once it’s out. Once we start to open up Psychically, we cannot close our eyes and change our mind. The only way out is forward. By accepting the shift in consciousness, and the fact that it is happening on a species level scale; we can adapt & find a new balance.
First and foremost, I recommend a change of thinking. I personally love moments of Betwixt & Between… I love the day-dreamy, Spirit filled, pause…as it gives me time for reflection; even if it is for brief moments. The connection to the past is strong at this time, making it perfect for reflecting on the events of this life and moments that sneak into our consciousness, from past lives. I have found many of my clients contacting me for Past Life Readings over the last few weeks; as their story pokes at them through the veil. My personal belief on Past Lives; is more of a belief in parallel lives…embracing the thought of quantum theory. I believe that we are living multiple lives simultaneously, and that we connect at the moments that lessons are shared. By looking at this time when we are Betwixt & Between as an opportunity, we can connect with our soul more clearly. It’s a good time for jotting things down in our journals, so that we can digest it later.
Part of Psychic Evolution is becoming more Empathic. So make sure you take extra precautions to keep your emotions clean. Check in with yourself regularly, if you mood has suddenly changed…do not assume it is your moodiness. Instead look around and see where or who you think the heavy emotions are coming from. Make time for Nature, it has the ability to soothe the frenzied beast, and remember…in the long run, this is a good thing.
