The Unknown is what you cannot see, hear, feel, know, second- guess, expect or control. There is no instruction manual and nothing familiar. The comfort zone is being eroded much like being in a swimming pool where all of a sudden the sides of the pool disappear and you find yourself in a vast body of water with no edges in sight. You will either sink or swim and this is the nature of this month. Fear will cause you to sink. The willingness to be in a new experience will keep you afloat.
The UNKNOWN is like the dark. The creative mind goes wild without the reality check of the seen world. This can create the possibility for great delusion, fear, and physical, mental and emotional discomfort. On the other hand, when there is no reference point, the creativity is boundless and it can be much easier to think outside the box and eliminate limiting thoughts and beliefs as well as old patterns.
I recently had the experience of witnessing in myself how I give my power away to beliefs that were created around past experiences. If I experienced something in the past, the result of that experience became defined in my mind as a belief. If I go to repeat that experience, the mind has already defined the outcome based on the past and what it believes to be true. The discipline for me was to not believe old definitions of the mind but rather to use my creativity to imagine and make room for something different and more expansive.
Thinking outside the box and bringing in your imagination can be freeing but tricky at the same time. You need to have some reference points and reality checks so you don’t simply fall into the void and get lost in your own delusions. Community will be important this month especially being with people who are on the same page as you are. If you are not in the right environment, workspace, relationship or community, it will become painfully obvious. If you are not able to make the changes you need to, don’t be surprised if spirit arranges it for you.
This could be a difficult month to navigate especially for those that do not have a good internal reference point and compass of their own spiritual practice. Whether it is participating in an organized religion or following a personal spiritual practice, it will exceptionally important to rely on it this month to guide you.
The time brings tremendous possibilities to recreate just about everything in your life. When you are dealing with the UNKNOWN, you can either hide in fear and wait for the night to be over, or you can explore the possibilities by opening your eyes, making friends with the shadows and using your other intuitive senses to “see” in the dark.
Darkness is the perfect canvas for the imagination and we all know that imagination is one of the building blocks of manifesting. The exciting thing about this month is that we have the perfect opportunity to break through that membrane that represents a limited physical reality and expand ourselves into a larger container. We will need to move our security point from being defined externally to our internal knowing and sense of ourselves.
Your heart is the best compass you have and it always knows deep down inside what you truly want, who you truly are and what makes you happy. Trust your heart not your mind this month and beware of the mind trying to masquerade as the heart. At no other time has it been this imperative that you keep “don’t know mind”.
One of the biggest lessons and challenges for some of you will be to let go, really let go, of the need to know, the need to be right and the need to control. These three needs are needs of the mind and will derail you from the true power available this month. Watch the stories your mind tells you in the attempt to understand this great dissolving of the known container. There is a fine line between delusion and reality. The reality this month is the great UNKNOWN. Delusion is just another expression of “the need to know” creating a new story that you can get attached to that may or may not manifest.
You may witness those around you dealing with the UNKNOWN in different ways. Some will have a difficult time of it especially if their shadow has to do with their self-worth. Some will become almost manic in their creative new stories, some will withdraw in deep fear, and others will be able to walk that tightrope, keeping their eyes open, trusting their instincts, doing their daily practices and honoring the path of the heart.
This month supports the healing of our deepest fears. When the shadow surfaces, as it will for all of us, the discipline will be to starve it of any power by facing it with a “don’t know mind” and humbly turning the whole process over to spirit. This is allowing the heart to lead instead of the mind. The heart can face the UNKNOWN with way more wisdom than the mind can.
Have a great month,
