Life as a dream

In my Journal for this week, I compared this time between eclipses to being in a "through-the-looking-glass" world  -- and that other-worldly feeling has definitely increased as the days have progressed.

The story of "Alice Through the Looking Glass" is filled with themes of time and space not acting quite as expected. And, the telling of Alice's second adventure ends with a poem, the final lines of which are quite appropriate now:
Ever drifting down the stream--
Lingering in the golden gleam--
Life, what is it but a dream?
There's an odd real-but-not-quite-real feeling in the air now. Looking at life objectively, things appear fairly normal. Usual routines, same house, same dogs, same work. But a part of the brain is working on entirely different levels, making it all seem somewhat dreamlike at the same time as appearances would tell us all is as usual.

And the physical symptoms can be perplexing. Extreme tiredness for no apparent reason, then wakefulness when we lie down to sleep. Feeling hungry at odd times, and food not quite registering as expected -- still feeling hunger after eating plenty, or digestion just not working as well as usual. Headaches, chest pains, other odd discomforts as well.

It's said that these are all signs that our physical bodies are going through a phase of adjusting to the heightened energies -- "ascension symptoms" is the term some have given.

Lauren Gorgo's latest blog entry lists these symptoms and explains why they're occurring:
This merging of the spiritual and material…the awakening of unity consciousness…is happening through our heart centers as well as the pituitary/pineal glands so if you have been experiencing intense heartburn/ nausea (heart opening), pineal/pituitary activation (sacred marriage) symptoms...vertigo, sleepiness, FATIGUE, disorientation, insomnia, deep sleeps, sinus issues, headaches, sore/itchy scalp, watery/red/ itchy/burning eyes, changes in eyesight, etc...and/or digestion issues (root clearing/grounding/cellular detoxification), most likely it's related.
It's comforting to know the reasons for such things! And good to know we're all in this together.

  1. Pam, I really relate to what you've posted! This time between eclipses has felt surreal to me. Somehow I had the impression that the solar eclipse June 1st would ignite things or help break through blocked energy to open doors. Instead, it feels as you describe here - almost like being in time/out of time where everything on the outside is still the same yet somehow different.

    For me, it's a feeling of navigating with a new compass but the compass isn't designed to read the physical environment I'm in, so I feel a bit lost. The magnetics have shifted or changed.

    At the eclipse, I had two possible job offers. Both were amazing opportunities that I would gladly embrace. Then, just after the eclipse, they both disappeared or got put on hold. I have felt 'on hold' or floating in limbo since. It's as though I'm floating in or towards new territory and I haven't yet arrived.

    I'm wondering what the lunar eclipse this next week will bring. I would welcome some forward movement...or perhaps just clarity.

  2. Hi Pam! You mentioned in your weekly newsletter that Saturn "has reached the signpost it originally passed last October". I was in Florida for a good chunk of September and half of October. Now an unexpected opportunity has presented itself for me to go back there for the month of July. It seems that whatever transpired last fall is now coming up again. I don't know if it's a redo or what. Is there something in my chart that I should look for that could give me a clue. And with the energies so intense this year, I will more than likely go just to get away from home. I've got so many people in my space now that I just feel suffocated and exhausted from it all. On top of that, I have a tendency to fall to the ground an awful lot. Seems I can't stay standing. LOL! Anyways, love your blog and your site. ~Sophia
