Have you experienced The Dark Night of the Soul
I am going through a dark night now, too. For the first time, I want to give some credence to Astrology: I was listening to an astrologer say there's a retrograde of Mars, forewarned way back in February that it would be going on March through end-August this year, when usually it only happens for a couple of days. I am learning Mars is all about division and separation, fight and resistance, getting you to want to move or quit work and be done with things you put up with, no compromises, nevermind the consequences. So, the good news is that according to astrology, relief is coming soon!
Personally, this is maybe my fifth dark night, usually lasting a few months to over a year each time. Each is different, but it holds true that sometimes getting out of it is *not* up to you alone - we people are centered on humanity and the power of ourselves, but all you can really control are your choices and response to a vast, constantly changing universe. And realizing a new way to see things takes the time it takes. When you're not in control, then it is the ability to remain centered and moving with grace that can become your focus.
And I was lucky enough to get a message from my guides a month ago that sounds so much like what you just said: none of our tools are working like we have come to expect. What I was told is that there is a shift happening, and everyone has changed so much, the tools we have learned to use do not work now (like trying to fix an iPad with a wrench), but the spiritual tools we need to take their place have not actually been invented yet - they are in research and development on the spiritual side. But prayer works, and getting together with spiritually-conncted friends and like minds may not help like it used to, but it is important to keep meeting because it is a good time to discover and try new tools - other ways to ground, to connect, to heal, etc. Like this site, I guess!
I have talked with other sensitives and we seem to be experincing it in similar ways: like a thick, impermeable cloud between us and the connection we are used to being able to make. I think appropriate sleep and going through the motions with good habits whenever possible, keeping that structure and keeping things going even when it feels like faking it, that keeps chaos away and put order to what I can, so I can stay open as much as possible, so when the cloud dissipates, I am ready to connect.
Thanks for posting, and I hope this helps.
