"At times, especially over the past month, it's felt as if the flow has become a turbulent series of rapids." She exclaimed.
"That is so." S-H-E said with great compassion. "Many are feeling this in varying degrees and on various levels. These are times of immense change, and immense change often expresses itself in turbulent ways. As the law of perpetual transmutation of energy states, everything is in a state of constant flux. These changes exist on all levels, some seen, some unseen. What may seem like 'negative' experiences on the physical level is often beneficial on another level."
"I do feel as if it's all part of the healing process, but it's really challenging at times." She replied.
"Let go of the need for outcome." S-H-E suggested lovingly. Knowing the energy of these changing times can be quite harsh on the sensitive human energy field. "Releasing, integrating and healing does not have a finite end. As you go deeper into the process, the intensity will increase. As you commit to each level of processing and healing and you align more to the energies coming through, you're going to need time to acclimatize. Think of the water flowing in a river. You may enter the flow at a calm, shallow spot. There may be gentle curves, clear expanses and the occasional sand bank. The going is fairly easy. But further along the river are rapids and eventually a waterfall. As you get closer to the rapids, the flow of the water speeds up. In the rapids you may find areas where you have chosen the right passage and although it's intense and fast, you flow through with relative grace. However, you may at times simply be tossed and turned through a really rocky section, surfacing on the other side with a few bumps and bruises. Unsure of how you got through or where you are. Still, the closer you get to the waterfall, the faster everything happens. You begin to feel out of control. But there is no way of controlling things, for you've passed the point of no return. You reach the waterfall and all you can do is trust. Trust that your landing will be in a calm, peaceful pool at the base of the waterfall. And as you tumble over the edge, you surrender. And in that surrendering, you become someone bigger, braver, newer! And the person who finally splashes into the deep, cool, peaceful pool at the base of the waterfall is not the same person who stepped into the quiet stream at the start of the journey."
"That truly is how it feels at times." She replied with some relief. "Though I don't think I've reached the next waterfall yet. That analogy really helps put things in perspective."
"In life, there are many rapids and waterfalls, as are there many quiet, meandering streams." S-H-E said. "If you look back at your life, you may just recall some of them. But that is the experience you call life. You will traverse many rivers, each offering a gift of healing, learning and growing - evolving. When things get really tough, it's ok to swim to the bank of the river, or a rock and take a short time out to catch your breath. But you will need to return to the river and continue with it's course downstream. For trying to swim upstream again will get you nowhere."
"Thank you." She said quietly. "I think I'll just sit on the grassy bank for a while and catch my breath."
"You do that dear soul." S-H-E replied lovingly. "I am here with you, now and always."

Conversations with S-H-E
Conversations with S-H-E begun early 2018 when S-H-E appeared first in a visionary dream state and then more frequently in meditations and dreams since then. 'Her' name - S-H-E - embodies the essence both SHE and HE; multidimensional states of consciousness between Spirit/Heaven/Earth; Yin-yang and All that is.
