Beltaine is one of the 8 Celtic holidays, that make up the Wheel of the Year. Traditionally taking place on May 1st, Beltaine is an ancient fertility holiday in which people gather to bless the land.
Thin moments such as Beltaine; often take on a sort of timelessness, and are referred to as Betwixt & Between. Betwixt & Between means neither here/nor there. Dawn & Dusk are times of Betwixt & Between; for they are neither night, nor day….but stand in the space between. Beltaine & Halloween are also such moments, for they are the pause, between Summer & Winter, and Winter & Summer. Memories from this life, past lives and the memories held by the Spirit of place, often pop into our mind at these moments…for memory also exists in the Betwixt & Between. All of this adds up`to the whirlwind feeling that often accompanies early Spring.
Collectively we humans spin through cycles together (I am sure any Astrologers among the Reading audience would agree). These cycles are not only influenced by the planets and stars, but the shifting of our living planet. These moments of pause or Betwixt & Between, are powerful moments Spiritually, but can often leave us feeling unbalanced. Working regularly with the public, I have witnessed a higher level of chaos or imbalance this Spring then in years past. I believe this is in part due to Psychic Evolution…that’s right Folks; I believe as a species, we humans are evolving right here/right now.
So what do we do about it?
Frankly, there is no putting it back in the box once it’s out. Once we start to open up Psychically, we cannot close our eyes and change our mind. The only way out is forward. By accepting the shift in consciousness, and the fact that it is happening on a species level scale; we can adapt & find a new balance.
Part of Psychic Evolution is becoming more Empathic. So make sure you take extra precautions to keep your emotions clean. Check in with yourself regularly, if you mood has suddenly changed…do not assume it is your moodiness. Instead look around and see where or who you think the heavy emotions are coming from. Make time for Nature, it has the ability to soothe the frenzied beast, and remember…in the long run, this is a good thing.
