Getting Clarity After Loss

As you may or may not know, Nashville, Tennessee was flooded and many houses and businesses were destroyed when a record-breaking 13+ inches of rain fell in one weekend. The rapidly-rising muddy water from the Cumberland and Harpeth Rivers forced thousands to frantically flee their homes and hotels. Rescuers had to use boats and Jet Skis to reach stranded residents at their flooded homes. Gov. Phil Bredesen declared 52 of Tennessee's 95 counties as disaster areas. President Obama approved plans for FEMA to help victims in hard hit areas. The death toll from the weekend storms was 28 people in three states; 17 in Tennessee alone, including 10 in Nashville.

As a retired (ha ha) empath, I try not to get bogged down with the energy of the collective consciousness of humanity. I attempt to live in a vibratory frequency above the fearful "what ifs" and drama of Earth life. I know that I am spirit residing in a human body, but the recent flood in Nashville was so close to heart and affected my friend's homes and lives in such a way that it was hard not to "feel" the loss in our community. But was it really a loss? I suppose it's how you look at it. Yes, you lose things but they can be replaced. You may lose a loved one, but they are not gone. They are spirits without a body.

What I now understand (isn't 20/20 retro vision wonderful?), is that the deluge of dirty flood water not only tore down a lot of physical structures, but a lot of contaminated ideas and beliefs in our collective consciousness as well. The Nashville flood has caused a lot of people to let go of physically old things and embrace the new things. The things of our past will not serve us in this time of renewal. They must be removed to bring a new wave of enlightenment.
