Another year has ended, and with the beginning of a new one we hold on to hope that this year will be better, if not the best. The years 2020 to 2022 have tested us. Maybe the universe had some tough lessons it wanted all of us to learn but as 2022 ends, we are still facing fundamental issues.
The issues we now face impact us collectively and are bigger than the issues we each face on an everyday base. It's like we're suddenly becoming more aware of everything around us, or in a way more conscious. We're taking some of the blinders off and removing some of the limits we once imposed on ourselves. This is just as difficult as it is freeing because it forces to truly look at ourselves and have to come up with new ways of being.
Our society as a whole is changing, and with it each one of us, getting closer and closer to a time of complete rebirth. This is what it means.
What Is Rebirth?
A rebirth is a time of awakening. According to Deepak Chopra, an awakening happens when we wake up from "our dream world," where we use our ego to see the world and focus on the future and the present. Instead, by wakening, we tune into our soul and connect to others and the universe itself in a timeless way. We stop thinking of time as linear and start to notice how everything is connected.
Think of it like the waves of the ocean. By awakening, you become both the wave and the ocean as the wave is part of the ocean. You're in a state of eternal flow, connected to all the other waves, and the ocean at large. One ripple, or wave, impacts all others.
Tested By Trial
There's no denying that we're facing a time of rebirth, as proof is all around us. All of a sudden, the younger generation is taking an interest in spirituality on social media, the energies of everyone around are pushing towards change, we're being challenged, and society as a whole is unrecognizable now from just three years ago.
It's normal to feel unbalanced right now. Between inflation and increasing costs of living, and new rules and expectations post-pandemic, we haven't been given a chance to find a footing among all the changes. This uncertainty is causing an energy crisis as people are collectively going into survival mode and needing to rely on each other.
But what does it all mean?
Can You Feel It?
If you are energy sensitive which empaths usually are, then you must have felt this energy shift in the past while. Perhaps you have been feeling heavier as it amplified.
Even those who aren't usually attuned to this sort of energy have been experiencing the shift in their own way. Most people have been craving more connections and needing some sort of positive change. As time goes on, this energy becomes more and more apparent.
It Starts Small
Although we are talking about a complete rebirth, a total change of consciousness, and a huge energy shift, it starts small. The changes may be triggered by big global events like pandemics and inflation but they first affect us on an individual level. This change in ourselves then ripples into how we interact with each other. It has the power to help us form better connections as we rely on each other to get through these changes, strengthen our communities and improve our social networks in general.
The sad reality is this isn't always the first instinct. When people are overwhelmed, they often shut down, isolating themselves. During the pandemic, we literally had no choice but to isolate. Taking away human connection showed many how powerful it is. As we step back into a new normal, it has helped us work better on our connections and value them moving forward.
Everything Happens For A Reason
It might sound cliché, but everything happens for a reason, even the bad stuff. Without taking away some of our freedoms and putting us in the face of challenges, we wouldn't have had a chance to develop the gratitude and the skills necessary for a rebirth. The pandemic, for example, affected not just one society but the whole world.
We are meant to grow through the things before us to move forward. During the dark period we just passed, we developed a great power that is just waiting to be used for this rebirth.
Defined By Hope
This period of rebirth is important for all of us. The choices we make now could completely change our future. We are being given a chance to question the systems we just assumed as "the norm" for so long and examine if they're actually benefiting us or if we simply got comfortable. It's time to shake things up for the better. In that, there's hope.
Now with 2022 ending, people are hoping differently. They are hoping to return to some idea of normalcy and safety. They're hoping to maintain their connections and strengthen them. They're hoping to make up for lost time and to appreciate the things they once took for granted.
The Rebirth Is Now
Technically a rebirth is a timeless event that has always been in the works. Being in an awakened place always exists in the moment. This is good news for us because it means that even if we lose our awakened presence, we can get back to it.
The more we continue to evaluate what truly makes up happy, what matters, how we treat each other, and what defines freedom, the more we dissolve the false attachments and illusions that once distracted us. If we all keep on doing that collectively, we will carry on the rebirth, completely transforming the world as we know it to make it more peaceful, loving, and equal.
It Won't Solve Everything
We're still human, which means that our progress comes and goes. Awakening doesn't erase all problems. It just sets us in the mindset to look for efficient solutions.
In 2023 it's unlikely all of humanity’s difficulties will be washed away, no matter how far into our rebirth we get. But there is still hope that the world will at least be better.
What To Do Next
So what's your role in all of this? To change the world you need to start by working on yourselves. It's a ripple effect. The better people we become on an individual level, attuned to our needs, in control of our feelings, and with a clear vision of our fate, the more we influence each other and create change in the world.
Let go of the ego and any fear it creates that is holding you back. If you think about it, most of the suffering of the world is self-caused by other humans. That means only we have the power to fix it.
Continue to meditate, reflect and deepen your connection with yourself. Trust yourself and be sure of who you truly are.
