Here is a great article from my friend Jennifer Becker, I wanted to share.
Change was always something I disliked. The irony is I’m a Scorpio which is the zodiac sign most linked to transformation. Scorpios thrive on change! Here’s the thing. In resisting change, I was resisting life. What resulted was personal struggle as I opposed this natural, progressive force. Change is constant but it doesn’t have to be scary or difficult. To help you perceive change as enjoyable and exciting, let’s take a look at the concept of separation. Spiritual law teaches us that we are made from source energy which we have direct access to at all times. Since we all originate from source, our very essence is inter-connected. In other words, we are all one. It is our 5 senses that give us the illusion that we are separate beings and therefore disconnected from source/each other. Our eyes tell us that “you” are “over there” and at a distance from me. Our sense of touch further gives us the information that since I can’t “feel” you, you must be separate from me. Our ears tell us your voice is detached and arises outside of us. Our smell gives us the illusion that the scent of you is coming from a distance. Lastly, well, we can’t taste the other person! All this unconscious sensory information bypasses our conscious mind and translates into the unconscious belief that we are all separate. Here’s the piece: We fear change because subconsciously we like the control of knowing what comes next. By knowing where we stand in relation to the outside and “separate” world, life becomes more predictable, providing us with a false sense of security. Read those last sentences again so it can really sink in. In spiritual terms, we fear change because we have become disconnected from source. Our focus is external and as such we are unable to feel our internal source energy where true peace and “safety” reside. We are focused on our differences rather than our interconnectedness. We are ever changing beings whether we like it or not. You can pave a more gentle path for yourself by adopting regular spiritual practices and consciously letting go of old belief systems that no longer serve you. Tap into source energy (go within) and know that you are safe as your change is being guided and supported by spirit at all times.
