The intelligence within Ostara’s Crowning is dazzling. It’s affecting humans only. It unleashed just before the lunar new year and the largest mass migration of people on the planet, in the heart of the country that engages with this custom of the Chinese New year, ensuring maximum spread. It is destabilising industry, stock markets, and power-based leadership. It is turning awareness specifically to over-population, over-consumption, and more poignantly to our most vulnerable – the elderly, very young, sick and underprivileged.
It has called out the mistruths of leaders and media. It is silencing us with masks, asking us to be quiet and listen. It is forcing us to assess the necessary from the unnecessary as supply chains are faltering. It is cleaning the atmosphere through factory closures, empty streets and polluting. No one can question that it is our collective arrogance towards the natural world that is being challenged. No matter how fancy our arguments have been to date, that deny climate change and the damage the human collective has inflicted on the planet through over-production fuelled by commerce and profits, felling of forest, augmenting of food chains and natural genomes, disrespect of animals, these words and snazzy graphs amount to zip in the face to the might of The Wild. In a matter of weeks the trade mechanisms and the smooth talking that has underpinned our arrogance towards the planet have been destabilised. For many people around the world the immediate reaction has been FEAR! Not helped of course by the sensationalism and fear-mongering that governs the media reports and click-bait headlines online. World anxiety can tip an already anxious person over the edge and it can raise to the surface unprocessed fear and anxiety from personal past events or overloaded nervous systems, generally.
I am seeing this every day in my healing sessions. There is some wonderful guidance circulating from our psychologists and counsellors on social media, offering real effective ways to counter the tail-spin of fear. Here’s my recent article Creative Fear, on ways to transmute the energy of fear which I wrote six weeks ago when the fear wave hit Singapore for the first time. What I am seeing in the main, is a fear born from a sense of disempowerment and helplessness. And in my experience, one of the most powerful ways to transmute this, is by stopping, reframing perspectives and then acting to generate a counter-field to fear within the mind/body system.
