After a short hiatus, Lee Harris is back with his energy forecast for March 2014 entitled ‘Finding the Present in Every Moment’.
Below the video, you’ll find a transcription of his report, in case you prefer to read it than listen to it. Personally, I find that I get different things from each version
Hi and welcome to the March Energy Forecast.
I have not done one of these for a few months. So it’s nice to see and feel you all again, and I hope you’re doing ok out there.
These are certainly amplified times for all of us right now. And I have noticed a few different patterns over the last month to 6 weeks that people have had as a shared experience.
Death has been a very big theme. Many people are having loved ones around them die. Some people are having pets die. And then the theme of death just in general in the world is happening globally with certain areas experiencing more conflict than we are used to seeing.
Secondly, the environment; and all that we are seeing going on in the environment right now and actions that are very obviously destructive for the environment.
So, when you question why you’ve been feeling perhaps a rising intensity in your life (and for some of you it will manifest as anxiety), you don’t have to look very far to understand that there are actual stimuli for this.
This is often the tricky area for us as human beings in our minds. Because if you are confused about something in your life, nervous, or afraid about something in your life, what tends to happen is if your mind starts becoming overactive, it is because it responds to the anxiety levels in the body.
So as this anxiety energy travels upward in your body, what you start having is thoughts that circle – thoughts which I often call ‘anxiety mind loops’. These loops are where you start obsessing over details, and obsessing over things that are going on.
This is why when recognizing anxiety and fear experiences, it’s really powerful and important for you to ask the question “How is my body? Never mind what my mind is thinking about what’s going on outside me or what’s going on over there – how is my actual body today?”
And in the last month or so, even though many people have talked about having more open, flowing experiences of life in some areas, many are using the words ‘intense’ or occasionally ‘challenging’ for their daily life.
And if you look at the prophecies that we were given thousands of years ago about this time in our history, it was always going to be a turbulent and challenging time; but within that, for those of you who ascribe to the understanding that we are souls having an often repetitive experience here on the planet, this is why so many of you will be tying things up in your lives right now – or feeling like you’re tying things up.
So February was a very strong time for many people around purging or cleansing or changing details in their life. There is also this theme that has been going on for a long time where you might be having dreams of significant people in your life. Or in your daily life, you might be thrown back to 2002 in memory, and to something that happened to you there; and you’ll have a very different experience about that memory as you look at it now and as you feel it now.
So as the outer world is changing very rapidly, we too are called to change very rapidly in our inner worlds.
And one very, very big theme that came up in the Live Q and A broadcast that I did two weeks ago in The Portal (which is the membership club that we have), was ‘Fear’. Fear was very high on everyone’s radar.
So many people were talking about the fear they were experiencing about the world, the fear they were experiencing in themselves around their own lives and their health.
These are very prevalent issues today. They aren’t phantom ideas. Wherever you look in the world there are as many threats as there are supports to both the planet and to the livelihood of all that live here – humans, animals and beyond.
So one of the things that I have learned as a sensitive person is you tend to have an amplified nervous system if you’re a sensitive person or you can have that tendency.
So if you can just work with your body a few times a day to help you come back to center and to calm, you’re going to see a lot more flow and a lot more openness happening for you on a daily basis.
Why this is important is you are going to be more useful energetically and practically to the kinds of changes you would like to see in the world.
One of the arguments I’ve often seen on the internet among people is “Well, why self-love? Because if you self-love, what about loving everyone else?”
Well, those of us who understand the principle of self-love know that you don’t become more loving toward yourself and then be more selfish towards others. The opposite is actually true.
It’s the same with looking after your own energy field in these times. And for the sensitive among you, you can feel a lot of empathy, a lot of pain sometimes in your own body around the suffering that you’re seeing going on in the world.
But if you travel off your center, and start to merge with that fear and suffering, you’re in a wobbling state. If you’re able to see and experience suffering energy outside you, but can come back to a place in yourself where you can be calm, you will be useful to the transformation of that suffering state.
Because you will be able to hold an energy of peace and openness that will actually positively influence those in the fear or the suffering state.
And beyond that, those who are conscious activists in the world who are working on behalf of the planet and the people around you, to try and give us a healthy and more sustainable future, will also benefit from looking after their nervous system.
So if you don’t have a practice in your life like Yoga or Qi Gong or any of the other meditative ‘arts’, that help you work with your energy body on a daily basis, just take a few moments each day to ask yourself how you are doing, check in with your nervous system and to see how stimulated it is. It’s a very stimulating world, as we know.
Those of you who are on Facebook for example, will be experiencing a lot of stimulation; and I’m not saying that’s a negative thing, but I am aware that for all of us, the younger generation are an exception perhaps because they were more born into this speed of life.
But for most of us who didn’t know the internet in our earlier lives and didn’t know the speed of information and assimilation that we now have in our world, if you add all of that information attention that we are now dealing with daily, along with the rise in intensity on the planet and around the world, then you start to understand why many people are wobbling in themselves. It’s an instinctive and a sensory response.
A couple of quick things you can do are literally just to use these wonderful hands of yours. The nervous system calms down very quickly with touch. If you think of babies, when you hold a crying baby, the baby often calms down.
So just take your hands and literally first of all start with your head, and gently place your hands on and over your head. This is especially effective if you notice that you are having many thoughts, because the thoughts are circulating in that area of your body.
Take your hands and support your head with touch for a few seconds – the very area where everything is going on. Just put your hands there for a few seconds or a few minutes, as long as you feel you need to.
What it will do is it will help to re-center all of the energy in your body that has perhaps started to spin out in the directions of others or in response to everything that’s going on in the world. So then move down to your shoulders; then you can take your hands and put them across this top of your chest and just keep moving down your body. (In the video, Lee demonstrates all of these movements). I’m just giving you an example here, but you can go wherever you feel to go on your body.
As you do this, as you start to support your torso and your head with your own touch, you’re going to notice you will come back into your own alignment. 5-10 minutes of this touch exercise will be the most beneficial, especially if done a few times a day.
Lots of people have spun out recently – spun off their center. This doesn’t make for clear decision-making; this doesn’t make for being useful to yourself, or toward your loved ones. And what tends to happen when we spin out is we keep looking for the answers outside ourselves. We keep trying to find support outside ourselves or a solution outside ourselves.
But this is simply an internal energy state that’s in need in you. There usually aren’t external solutions for it.
If you think of the speed of change that we’re all going through, it’s a lot to take in. I said to my friend the other day, “It’s not the 80′s anymore.” And we both laughed slightly nervously as well because there is certain nervousness in the air of where the world is going.
One of the things that The Z’s, who I channel, have said to me for many years is that there is often a fear of future that people have, especially if they’re futurists.
So if you’re somebody who has been used to using your psychic mind, your intuition to see down timelines to possibilities, you can travel into a future scenario and it can feel horrific to you as you travel into it.
But the truth is you’re traveling into it without true knowledge of what it would feel like if you did arrive in that future reality that you most fear. Because this body that I am in experiences up to today, which is March 4th.
If I am worried about a reality a year from now, I will not feel equipped to deal with what’s happening a year from now. But by the time I get there a year from now, and I’ve gone through all the other days and months that have energetically prepared me and have got me used to being in the present moment, in a year, I’m going to have a much better time of dealing with it and being in it.
So, if you’re having lots of fears of the future or fears of the worst case scenario, know that you have to come back to the present. It’s the only place we can truly exist.
On Friday last week, one of my closest friends dog was put to sleep. She was very, very old and it was her time to go, but I have never seen a human or an animal die. And she had an injection, and she was very peaceful, very happy as she went. It was a very beautiful experience. For 24 hours prior, we were all spending time being with her and being present with her. And I’ve known this dog in my life for the last five years and I’ve lived with her for two and a half. So as I watched her go, she just fell asleep. Within five seconds, she was one minute looking and the next minute she was just gone.
Even though I’m often having to remind myself and us that we can die any minute (on behalf of The Z’s who are often reminding me that a human life can end like that), and that therefore we should focus on being as appreciative and as sensory and alive as we can in each moment; seeing death up close was very powerful. And I know many of you watching will have had that experience with humans and/or animals.
Of course I had a heart chakra moment where it just opened fast as she died, and we all had tears because of the loss of a loved one in our life. Whenever any loved one moves out of your life, your energy field changes – you let them go. There was relief for her, because she was no longer suffering and then in the following 48 hours for me, there was a profound awareness to just appreciate every second. Which anyone always says to you, if they have seen death.
So we don’t know how long we’re here for. We don’t know how long we’re here for as a race and we don’t know how long we’re here for as an individual. But if we keep living with a want and a desire to be here on a daily basis we will keep creating and renewing life to the best of our ability and the highest potential available to us individually and to the planet.
I think there is a sense of disempowerment many people are having at the moment when they are seeing things going on. But I’m called to remind all of us and myself that the energy that we hold on a daily basis is very powerful.
For example, if you are feeling distressed about what’s going on in the Ukraine right now, do what I did the other day. Sit in your house, think of that place, think of the people in that place and envision peace – hold energy around peace for those people. You may be able to affect a world situation in a far more powerful way than we could understand.
But there are things we can do on a daily basis for those outside us and there are things that we can do on a daily basis for those nearest to us. And the most important thing for all of us to maintain that life force, is for us to learn how to keep our own center in our daily life. When you come off your center and you go into the human chaos, you go into the human energy fractiousness which is going on a lot now, you tend to forget your spiritual vertical connection. And that’s with us all the time, that’s undeniable.
So if you live as a human with that inner vertical connection as much as the outer horizontal connection you not only have a far richer experience, but you tend to have a higher experience in all of your interactions every day. And we all know that the lower experiences do not feel so comfortable when we are going through them.
I would just invite all of you to just stop for a second at the end of this message and ask yourself, if you’ve been feeling low recently, how involved do you feel you have gotten into other people’s low states, fears, energies. Can you just take a few times each day to come back to you.
Ask yourself how you’re doing on this beautiful planet that we live on and ask yourself what you would like to do next – for yourself or for the world.
Lots of love everybody; I hope you have a great month and see you in April.
