The End Of An Era

Bet you didn't know you were a superhero


I don’t know how to describe it exactly, except to say that everything just ended.

 Many people have been feeling a pressure building up to the boiling point, that change is coming and they know they are in for a big shift.

Many have been giving up on some dreams, at least temporarily.  There has been a lot of boredom, lack of sleep, or general malaise.  “Out with the old and in with the new.”

Then suddenly for the last few days or so it shifted to an anxiety feeling like we had ants in our pants.

It’s official.  I’ve done all I can do and I call “uncle.”  I give up.

It has been a whirlwind lately.  This is an end of an era and a dawn of another. 

I was going to keep a journal, to have a history of all of the changes.  They came so fast and furiously, that the dust settled on one and another arrived before I could even take a breath.

It feels very much like someone who has come to an end of an illness, and the nurse stops by to take care of cleaning the body up, unhooking the IVs and taking the bandages off before you go home.

In my case, I asked for it.  I was so tired that I stated that I wanted to get hit with the rest of it right away, so I could shut the door on the lessons from that period and rest for a bit before resuming whatever came next.

You know what they say, be careful what you wish for. 

Sure enough, I got news that shook me down the core.  I knew enough about the Bad News Department to see it when their representatives were coming, cross my fingers that it might not really be them, and then just accept it when it was them, after all.  What might have taken me months or years to recover from took a few days.  It’s here and there is just no use in fighting it – that only prolongs it.  Best to just absorb it and carry on.

The nice part about being hit full in the face with The Truth, is that now you know it.  There is no more doubt or second guessing.  Then, you can find ways to simply enjoy it.

One thing that I finally learned recently was something I have known all along.  When you get that niggling doubt about a person, and you start telling yourself you’re imagining it, they act so nicely sometimes, they couldn’t possibly be that bad, is the exact moment when you have to trust your intuitionthey are exactly that bad.

There’s something about you that will act the same, every time the moral situation appears, no matter in what form.  In my case, it is a tendency to go on the offensive, to protect others.  As an adult, I had to squash this most of the time, for my own good or because it wasn’t my place.

Suddenly, I’ve found the need for it again.  I had an intense situation come up.  I have no problem with taking the walls and ceilings and an entire institution down with me, if necessary.  Or, I may do nothing.  I’ll check in with the universe before I go in, guns blazing – just to see if it is needed or warranted.  The difference this time is that it matters not to me – I will call it as the ball zips by the plate, and not before.  I won’t waste a moment more stewing over it.

You may be feeling this too – a sense that you know exactly who you are, why you were put here at this time, and you’re ready.

I’ve heard so many stories lately about new beginnings.  And endings.  When there is a new start, usually something else falls by the wayside in the process. 

Now more than ever, we  are falling right into ourselves.  There is a crisp clarity to the process. 

People are saying,”I’m just not afraid anymore.”  They almost don’t know how it happened or where it went, but it’s indeed disappeared.


And look out, anyone who is still messing around with fear promotion – we are on to you and light always illuminates the dark.  I can practically see them scurrying away in terror, back into their holes.

I had a really funny dream some time ago where I was working with three of my fellow intuitives.  We were in a scary situation with serial killers, there was blood everywhere and we were really scared.  Then like in a children’s cartoon, we donned some silly superhero type capes and started flying around, taking out the bad guys.  When I woke, I laughed, since we all looked so ridiculous.  There was a feeling though that we had a job to do and we were being assisted by the powers that be – and there was little if any doubt that we would succeed.

Well, I met those three other people – they are real, living, flesh and blood people, doing this work in one way or another.  And like most of my premonitions, they may be metaphorical but they always eventually come into being.

Do you know the expression “the worm has turned”?  Someone I know uses it all the time to express that good fortune has turned to bad.  Except it turns out, he uses it incorrectly.

 The most well known is Robert Browning:

“Tread on a worm, it turns, sir! If I turn, Your fault!”

and also Shakespeare, Henry VI:

“The smallest Worme will turne, being troden on.”

Apparently, a worm does actually turn over when disturbed.  “Worm” also was used to mean “dragon” some time ago, and it’s fire breathing turned away in the other direction could be nothing but good.  

Usually though, we take it to mean that someone who was meek, stands up for themselves, or that there is a basic, indomitable human resistance to tyranny.

It’s here folks – change is Right Now.  If you haven’t noticed it, take a personal inventory and see how strong you have grown.  You might be duking it out on a personal basis, which likely will in time grow worldwide.

Everyone’s awake.

A unique revolution is upon us.

You are here at this time for a very specific reason, and you’ve just come into your truth.

It’s time to ramble on.

  1. Excellent writing. Them what has ears will hear.

    Ramble on.

  2. I’m with Michael. This is one of your best articles – very well written. I’m feeling the changes, that’s for sure. Feeling better today than I had been yesterday – what a process! Gotta remember to keep shining the light…

  3. When I read “Everyone’s awake,” I got chills. Awake (as a verb) was my word of the year two years ago. It is still a guiding principle in my life. Great article. I can feel it.

    • Hi Galen,

      Thanks for the visit. Whenever I get chills I know I’ve hit the nail on the head and am being supported. Glad you felt it and it’s nice to be “awake” right along with you.

  4. “You may be feeling this too – a sense that you know exactly who you are, why you were put here at this time, and you’re ready.”
    You have NO IDEA how true this statement is for me. It’s the reason why I finally decided to put myself out there and start my intuitive business…no more waiting, no more fear; it was time.

    Lovely post. I thank Spirit for you, b/c this could only be Their work through you. You’re SO blessed.

    Nicely done Julie. It’s like when you peak the crest of that hill on a roller coaster ride. There ain’t no stoppin it now, just hold on and enjoy the ride.

  6. Hi Julie,

    It really does feel like the end of one era and the dawn of another. What you wrote echoed what I have been feeling the past few days. Yesterday I felt like I was hit by a ton of bricks, to the point where I almost felt physically ill.

    Out of that has come clarity and an innate knowing of what I need to do next. Exciting times we live in.

  7. Hi Julie,

    SOOOO interesting to read your post. My own “worm has turned” this week. After 6 weeks of getting so run down and ill, my body forced me to take this whole week off work for myself and nobody else. Went through alot of life re-evaluation this week and decided to take my own personal stand about what I would do and not do – so it is interesting to see that it was also happening on a wider scale too.

    Hoping your path is smoother this week. 🙂

  8. Hi Julie,

    It feels to me as if this post was one of those that kind of wrote itself almost automatically with you simply being the conduit.

    On the subject of worms and yes a tad more literal but there’s nothing like having worms turn the soil which as as we know leads to rejuvenation and new growth for that which is ready to grow.

    • Hi Marcus,

      Yes, you are right – it was written in response to “one of those (several) days” where I was asking for an answer because the energy was just too much for me to handle and get through the day at the same time! I simply knew I had to get it out of my system in order to function, and sat down to write it out. I hadn’t written in a while. And naturally I was just as surprised as you all to see what came out.

      As usual, you add much to the conversation, regarding our friends, the worms. You brought me right back to my younger days when we visited farms and had earthworms in the soil. That is exactly what they do and apparently, what we are doing as well.

    Wow, Julie, this is some post. Just the other day I uttered that same word for similar reasons: Uncle! I’ve been writing about and living in surrender for almost a month now. Even today, I sat down here to continue to try to get some clarity on what the %&^% I’m doing! (I can’t help but notice that I started off with a Matrix Energetics session on myself just to jumpstart it, and Richard, the founder of ME, often plays around with Super Heroes. I’m right where I’m supposed to be!)

    But you’re right, we’re falling into ourselves. What a great way to put it. It’s like we can no longer live as wholly integrated beings. Anything not “of us” must fall away. I learned the hard way not to ask for my lessons, though … Really tough stuff came up … So I don’t know if I should congratulate you on doing that or chide you. 😉

    But I do know I thank you for sharing what you have, and I hope you’re doing well with whatever it is that’s presented itself for you. When I was hit with something while back that shook me to the core too, I also felt good to at least not be living under an illusion anymore. And like you, I found I did have a core. A strong one.

    Here’s to it.

      Ha ha, I meant: “It’s like we can no longer live NOT as wholly integrated beings.” Sheesh! :-b (And while I’m here, I’ll commentluv to the post where I talked about surrender.)
      Lots of blessings to you, Julie!
      Patti Foy | Lightspirited Being recently posted..Does Your Guidance Have to Scream to Get Your Attention?My Profile

    • Hi Patti,

      OK, chide away! I didn’t ask for ALL of my lessons, just the ones connected to this “era” in my life. Actually it’s funny that you put it that way, because I think part of this was precipitated by the reading you did for me a few months back. Remember you said that this period was going to bring some big things that would bring me to my knees if I didn’t learn to roll with them, and that this period would be over around the end of February? Well either that was strictly true, or my subconscious decided it agreed and would go along with it!!

      Actually the information I got was enlightening and filled in many a hole in the story, the parts that I couldn’t make add up or make sense. I guess the right attitude to take would be to be thankful for the information, because even though that’s not what I wanted to hear, it does allow me to move forward with knowledge of exactly which ducks I have lined up in which row.

    Hi Julie,

    I could have sworn that I posted a comment on this post a few days ago but it didn’t show up. Anyway, I really liked this piece you wrote. I’ve been feeling different lately too. Like something happened or is about to happen. Guess all we can do is hang on for the ride.

    • Hi Todd,

      That’s weird, I found both comments in the spam folder…which shouldn’t be, since you had so many comments previously approved. Just goes to show I need to actually look in the spam folder more often.

      It sure has been interesting and will continue to be, much more so (I imagine)!

  11. Glad I stopped over today, Julie. This is a tremendous sharing and lesson for all. This non-hostile state of mind is incredibly powerful. Have you ever been passively watchful as someone acted out his drama about some matter in his life? You, emotionally detached, can plainly see the issues and solutions, but he, emotionally charged, is blind to them. You have surrendered to the truth, suppression doesn’t solve problems; it causes problems.

    William Blake said, “The eagle never lost so much time as when he submitted to learn of the crow.” Clearly you have chosen a soaring spirit over the call of the flock of cawing crows.

    • Rob,

      Thank you for your support – it means a lot to me.

      I am finding that “knowing” that’s what must be done (rather than just using it as a strategy to “get my way”) has brought about some truly cooperative and surprising results. Now to apply it in all areas of life with all people…

  12. Love that phrase…. falling in to ourselves. Now if I could just get out of my own way and figure out what that and my true is it’d be fantastic. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
