Humans, in general, don’t understand the energy of chaos. They associate it with confusion, fear, and uncertainty. Which, these are definitely accurate associations. Chaos DOES bring all of that.
When all your walls and foundations are being torn down, falling around all around you, it is easy to get lost in those negative emotions. It is easy to let the massive stones of that structure crush you under their weight. However, what is frequently overlooked is the great creative potential that comes with chaos.
No matter what you believe, whether in the Bible or the Big Bang or some other catastrophic reason for why our planet and ourselves are here in this time and space, it all started with chaos.
God, according to the Bible, created everything in 7 days and before that was nothing but blackness. That blackness was Chaos. God saw it, decided it could be so much more than the nothing it was, and created a whole Universe out of it. He added plants, animals, and humans, and gave them all life. He turned nothingness into life.
If the Big Bang is more your thoughts, even that can arguably be considered chaos. The collision of of all the stretching particles sparked the forming and developing of different atoms, which then led to greater elements created, which eventually, after much more science things that I do not pretend to know all about, life came from it.
Personally, I identify as a Chaos witch. As with any pagan path or, well, anything at all, you can ask a hundred of us what that means and you’ll receive at least two hundred different answers. But, for me, that means that I am the master of my own life. I take the chaos and I create something out of it. I reform the energy and redirect it into more productive ways and this is reflected greatly in my readings and my craft. If you’re reading this, chances are you know me or have had a reading by me and you have seen, first hand, that my readings unlock some deep ass shit. My readings make you see where things are falling apart, like The Tower card, and give you suggestions on how to redirect that energy. I do this in my every day life as well, for myself and for my friends. I have no issue telling you exactly where your chaos lies and giving you a gentle push in the direction you need to go. Ultimately, though, you are the master of your own destiny. Every decision you make affects your future, every single day.
So, if you’re feeling like you’re surrounded in chaos, if your reality is falling apart around you, and you don’t know what to do, take a moment, close your eyes, and just breathe for a moment. Just exist right there for a little while. Then, take the initiative to contemplate how you can take hold of that energy and use it to your best interest.
If you’re stuck in that moment, feel free to reach out. Whether its just for a brief word of encouraging or for a full on reading, I am here for you. I want to help you. You don’t have to deal with it completely alone.
Chaos is scary but it can be so beautiful when you learn how to work with it. I love my chaos and you should love yours. So, lets take steps in that direction.
