Every so often we get an opportunity to take part in something far grater than we understand. It is like the universe comes to life and even though many of us do not notice, it brings us the option to open up to a new beginning and allow our soul to gain traction and grow into something greater. Nature is one of those catalysts. Far too many times we forget its power and have to be reminded. Scientific evidence proves how trees balance hormones in our bodies, the forests ability to sync our heart beat rhythms, sounds of water calm our nervous system and of course who could forget air, without it we wouldn’t survive. The proof is endless but as humans we forget that which we refuse to understand. We all too often fall asleep to the magic around us in our every day lives.
That is when a quick burst of power occurs and ushers all of us into a pattern of harmony we least expected. In comes the Cicada. Revered by ancient Egyptians and Greek Gods, the symbolism of a Cicada means spiritual uprising, enlightenment and awakening. This is exactly what is taking place before our eyes. With the sound of a vibration deep within our earth, each movement created by the Cicada’s beautiful soul calls to us and pushes our energy into alignment. Every 17 years, like a clock that is eternally engrained in the heart of the earth, the Cicada arrives in armies to the surface of the ground and sings their song through the trees. Vibrating off each blade of grass, through the core of each rock and stone and inside of the spirit of every living organism on earth. It is through this song that we connect and the collective energy runs through us in tandem without effort. Together, we attune to what is to come and unify as we head forward on our journey together. This year is especially pivotal for the energy of the Cicada as we all are finding ourselves awakening to various new beginnings and a deeper understanding of our personal and collective journey.
Therefore, as the Cicada rises this spring, understand it’s energy is connecting all of us. When you hear its sound, give a moment to close your eyes and feel the vibration rush through you from your feet to your crown and into the universe. Trust in its power and become aware that what it will engrain in all of us is the energy of the new collective. It is grounding us to the new beginning and igniting our soul to move forward as we watch this new world unfold. Wild and free. Like nature was meant to be and so are we.
