Wow. Recently I was working on a blog post about Empathic crystals and Venus came in. I put that blog on the back burner for just a minute.
We have been going through some stuff lately with the current energies, haven’t we!? It seems like crazy times and not unlike the Twilight Zone. We are ALL being triggered right now. From what I understand, it is part of the ascension process.
I asked Venus what she had to say about what is occurring in our world with the current energies.
I mentioned how everything seemed so divided, and it was almost as if we are living in two completely different realities. Even friends and family who normally agree are seeing two completely different versions of the same movie.
It seems so crazy (and impossible) to me!
I’ve been listening to Lorie Ladd a lot, and found it interesting (and affirming) that Venus’ advice was very similar to what Lorie has been bringing through about how to navigate the current energies.
VENUS WEIGHS IN
When I asked Venus if she would weigh in on the chaos that we are experiencing right now in the world, she gave me a vision rather than words. This isn’t our usual way of communicating.
She started with words, paused, then seemed to realize that showing me a picture-story would be more clear, so she switched to a sort of movie with commentary.
She showed me this “movie” as if we were floating above it, watching it play out. I did my best to create some visuals by splicing together clip art I found on the web.
THIS IS WHAT I SAW
Venus showed me a picture of a person in a small boat.
The boat was in a river, and the waters were roiling.
As long as the person stayed in the boat, perched in the center, and went with the bumps, it was a relatively calm experience, even though the waters were rough.
IN THE CURRENT ENERGIES, STAY IN THE BOAT
Then she showed me that occasionally the person would jump out of the boat and into the rapids.
(This has certainly been true for me. It’s so hard not to be triggered!)
It was as if they were lured out of the boat to engage with the “out there”, the “external”, current energies.
After being beat about in the rapids, (boat always floating alongside), they would pull themselves back onto the boat, sometimes nearly capsizing it on their way back in.
The boat would rock violently and they were wet, bedraggled and beat about.
It would take a while for their clothes to dry out and the boat to return to balance.
CALM AND CENTER
Next, she showed me a bubble around the person and the boat. The point of contact of the bubble was just barely sitting on the surface of the water. The boat floated at the bottom of the bubble.
She said, as long as we stay in our bubble, (which represents our center) and don’t “engage” (get in) the rapids (attach to the current energies), it will be smoother sailing for us.
We can expand the bubble to be bigger and bigger with our breath and intention.
The bigger the bubble, the more buoyant we are and less subject to the external rapids.
WE'RE IN THIS TOGETHER
She then widened my view and showed hundreds and hundreds of boats (thousands and millions if we kept going up, but she kept the scale small and digestible for me).
We are all floating on this river that grew as my perspective grew.
Lots of the boats were empty and many people were fighting in the rapids.
They were flailing about, the water was knocking them around and it was chaotic to say the least.
Venus brought me back to the boat in the bubble, reminded me to stay in my center.
THE RIVER WILL CARRY US THROUGH THE CURRENT ENERGIES
Then she pointed out that the boats were all headed for the same destination (ascension).
The river moved them all.
A few people floated relatively unscathed in their bubbles.
I saw others without a bubble, boat rocking with the waves but relatively dry.
Still others were out of their boat entirely, being thrown about violently in the current energies of the rapids.
THE RIVER IS DIVIDED
When I asked her to weigh in about the stark division in realities that we are experiencing in the current energies, she showed me a wider view.
As we pulled back and up, the river seemed to be split into two.
Some people were on one leg of the river and some people on the other.
Down the center, there were signs, like billboards. But, unlike road signs, which are facing the viewer (perpendicular), these signs were placed in the divide, running parallel to the river.
THE CURRENT ENERGIES BRING TWO REALITIES BEING FED
On each sign there was a different message, depending on which side of the river you were floating.
Everyone was seeing the same board on which the signs were posted.
What they didn’t know was that each side of the sign was different (completely opposite in many cases).
What you saw depended on which side of the sign you could see from your leg of the river.
Both sides were incredulous that the other could not see what was plainly printed on the signs as they passed them. After all, they were looking at the same sign! However, the people didn’t realize that what was written was different on each side of the board.
THE RIVER IS ONE
She then brought me up to an even higher perspective to see that the two branches of this river merge again, up ahead. It became one river again.
Of course, it was always one river, it just had this divider in the center, like a divided highway that split and then merged again.
I asked her how we were supposed to navigate when the signs were all painted differently with conflicting information.
She said “worrying about what the others were seeing or not seeing is not our business”.
Our business is our boat.
VENUS EXPLAINED FURTHER
The signs and posters on the divider were not put there by us (by our higher, most sovereign selves). They were put there by others with the goal of distracting, tricking and dividing using the current energies as fuel.
The signs and their messages are all illusion.
They are put there intentionally to make us think that the river is not one and that it will not flow to its destination.
They are put there to goad us into getting out of our boats (pull us off center) to fight the roiling rapids.
IT IS ALWAYS OUR CHOICE
Venus reminded me that it is our choice. We can stay in the boat (and even better, in the boat in the bubble) or get out of the safety of our boat and fight with the rapids. Either way, we WILL all arrive at the same destination in Divine Timing.
She clarified, “No amount of engaging with the rapids or trying to tell the other people navigating that they are taking a wrong viewpoint will change the trajectory of the river.
No amount of banging about in the water will push the river any faster.”
Again, she showed the two branches flowing back into one and onto the destination.
THE BUBBLE IS THE CALMEST OPTION TO NAVIGATE THE CURRENT ENERGIES
To summarize her advice, she suggested we breathe our bubbles bigger, stay calm and mind our OWN boat (not the boat of our neighbors).
Venus suggested we not pay as much attention to the posters placed on the divider. That it was OK to read them as we pass by, from a point of detachment, but not to let them pull us off center and into the rolling waters.
She said to remember that the river is moving us to our destination, and it need not be a painful journey.
Of course, she added, we have free will. We can choose to fight the rapids from outside the safety of our boat or spin our boats nauseously trying to steer other’s boats.
Since I asked her advice on how best to navigate these current energies, she suggested the bubble.
DOES THAT MEAN WE DON'T CARE ABOUT OTHERS?
The thought came to my mind as she talked that it sounded like she was suggesting that we not care about our fellow boat floaters. It felt like she was suggesting we ignore everyone and their pain and just float along without a thought for their safety.
She heard my question before I asked it and said “not at all“. That wasn’t the point of the vision she showed me.
She suggested “You can all engage with one another, and offer encouragement, knowing that you are all traveling this journey together.”
“Climbing out of ones boat and off ones center does nothing to help friends who might be fighting in the rapids.”
STAY IN YOUR CENTER
Venus continued: “The best thing you can do is show by example, staying in your boats and floating your centers.
When the others see that, they are more apt to stay in their boats and find their centers as well.
In this case, you help best by example.
Compassion and empathy, love and care for others still ride with you in your boat.
Staying in your boat doesn’t negate these emotions.”
LEAD BY EXAMPLE THROUGH THE CURRENT ENERGIES
Venus suggests in these current energies to remain centered and to lead by example.
Extend our love and compassion to others from the centered perspective of our own boat.
Know in our deepest knowing that the river is moving us to our destination.
It is our responsibility to navigate our own boat from a centered place. Remember not to allow the triggers of the falsely placed signs to pull us off balance.
A FINAL WORD AS VENUS WITHDRAWS HER ENERGY
“All is well. Even when it doesn’t seem like it, ALL is WELL.
Trust the divine flow of the river, stay centered, breathe, intend your bubble and don’t be lured into the roiling waters.
All is well.“
