SOLARA'S SURF REPORT FOR AUGUST 2002
The Surf has been rising steadily for months now. In July, the current became almost impossibly strong, unhinging us from our old moorings, propelling us into New Directions. Now, in the very exciting month of August, new swirling motions has been added to the Surf, making us feel like we are inside a giant whirlpool. Most whirlpools spin around and pull us down. The swirling whirlpools of August are spiraling us around and around, spiraling both inside us and outside us, pushing us into our new levels of being.
to see ourselves as small boats which have broken loose from our old
anchorages and been pulled out to sea by an extremely strong current.
Now a mighty storm is brewing, tossing us this way and that, moving
us into unexpected directions. We are surrounded by torrents of rain
and crashing thunder and bolts of flashing lightning. The Winds of Change
are howling, drowning out all other sounds. There is so much to do:
tying down the sails in the billowing wind, bailing the boat which is
being pelted with sheets of water, just trying not to capsize or fall
overboard as our boat gyrates wildly in the surging seas.
In the tumult
of change all around us, in the pressing urgency of each moment, we
have released our comfortable, established routines. Did we eat anything
today? Did we remember to get the mail? Did we remember to pay our bills?
Did we send a birthday card to our mother? WHERE are we going?
None of that matters anymore. There is something far more urgent which
we are dealing with. CHANGE. MASSIVE CHANGE. Change so huge that it
supersedes everything. The Winds of Change howl and blow.... Our little
boat is pushed deeper out to sea....
we get a glimpse of something blowing away from our boat--- something
not tied down, or maybe it was and now it's just time for it to be released.
So in spite of our efforts at securing it, off it goes in a blur, absolutely
gone from our lives. Forever. We might perhaps be sad at our seeming
loss, but we no longer have the luxury of reflection. The Winds of Change
are blowing more ferociously with each passing moment and we have too
much to deal with.
We are in
the midst of tremendous intensity, yet there is also a sense of exhilaration
and excitement that we feel. We don't have a clue where we are going
or how the details will play themselves out, but underlying everything
is a deep knowing that it's going to be all right. IT'S GOING TO BE
BETTER THAN All RIGHT; IT'S GOING TO BE PERFECT. We are being propelled
into the lives that we really want. And this raging storm of Change
is getting us there.
We are dealing
with many seemingly diverse elements in August:
The relentlessly powerful current pushing us along.
No way to escape it, so we might as well allow it to propel us into
the Unknown. It's one of the strongest currents we've ever felt, but
it's getting us to where we need to be.
The swirling, whirling whirlpool energies all
around us which make it difficult to focus on specifics or concentrate
or plan anything out in our usual fashion.
These spiraling energies make it utterly impossible to carry on with
our old patterns and force us to do things in new ways. We don't have
the time and space to think things out; instead we find ourselves in
the midst of a flurry of activities with too much to do, doing what
we can and letting go of the rest.
The sometimes forceful shucking off of the old
elements of our lives which can't be taken into the New with us.
Most of the time this feels like being
caught in a tornado; in the midst of all our activity, we can only observe
the blur of change around us. Oops, there goes our roof; there goes
our car; there go our old friends; there goes our jobs; there goes our
old lives. Whatever no longer belongs to our New Directions is being
pulled away from us. This is both tremendously exciting and a bit shocking.
If there wasn't so much going on, perhaps, we could stop and think about
The effortless, clicking into place of new locations
Many of us are moving from July to October.
When we find a new place, it will be absolutely perfect for us. These
new residences will recalibrate us so we can move into our new levels
of creativity. And for those of us who are being relocated, we must
move into our new locations before the next phase of our New Lives can
begin. If you feel a move coming, know that it will happen surprisingly
Remember that the old world is gone:
It no longer exists. What appears as the old world is like a hologram; it sort of looks real, but it isn't. Don't buy into this false world for it is laden with distortions. Instead, we can step into the Greater Reality.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
One of the rather strange elements we are
currently experiencing has to do with our interactions with the so-called
"normal" world, many parts of which seem to become increasingly
more pinched and distorted each day. It's easy to become frustrated
with some of these interactions and to give up whatever we are trying
to achieve. Our success depends entirely on the person with whom we
are interacting. If they inhabit the pinched, unreal world which used
to be considered normal, if they accept the distortions as real, then
we will have little success working with them and their rather robotic
Whenever this happens, try to step away
from the interaction, wait 15 minutes and make another attempt. This
time you may get a real person. If you do, you will find a successful
outcome. These "false starts" are simply rerouting opportunities.
Don't worry about the details!
We really don't have the time right now
to work out the details; we simply have to go with the flow. Everything
will work itself out and is going to be all right. We need to know and
embrace this. Change is good. It is propelling us to where we need to
Our beings are being moved to deeper levels of
the Greater Reality.
We need to raise ourselves to this new
level before we can fully enter our New Lives. Remember,
we are being
liberated from the past and are gaining our Personal Freedom!
a truly amazing and magnificent year. It's the year we have been waiting
for. It's the flowering of our tears, the reward for all the arduous
work we have done on ourselves and for all the challenges we have faced.
Once we get in our new locations or reach
the new level in our beings, then we will start experiencing the influx
of new people and new situations into our lives.
By the last week of August, the storm
will begin to calm down. We will finally be able to see just how far
we have traveled and how much we have changed. At last, we can have
a clear look about us and see where we have landed and who we have become.
And we will like what we see!
