There is a feeling of pressure in the air, as if something is about to (or needs to) burst, explode or release. You may be physically feeling this as a pressure on your chest (heart area). Emotionally you might be feeling like you're on a short fuse, walking on a thin wire between keeping it together and feeling utterly frazzled.
Visually I'm seeing a huge amount of 'new energy' coming in and compressing the 'old' energy, forcing it up (from under the carpet) and out. This is a positive thing, but depending which part of the wave you are surfing in any given moment it can feel either very suffocating and restrictive, or incredibly exciting and liberating. There is no right or wrong with whatever you're feeling. The fact of the matter is that everything that is not harmonious with the world we are here to create is being pushed up into greater awareness right now.
We are energetic beings that are realising our interconnectedness with all things. We are emotional beings that are in the midst of expanding our hearts. We are spiritual beings that are increasing our sensitivity and intuitive intelligence. It is not as easy as saying 'oh rise above it' when we find ourselves sitting in the part of the wave that is experiencing compression. Our awakening is not just about riding the crest of the wave, it is also about opening our eyes and hearts to the WHOLE wave, even the parts that don't feel so good, and especially the parts that have been limiting not only ourselves but our fellow humans and all living beings on this planet. Awakening to our wholeness can be intense. Birth IS intense. But it is essential for life to continue to evolve.
If you are finding it very difficult to go through this particular phase, hand it over to the part of you that DOES know what it's doing. In birth, your body knows what to do. In this intense evolutionary phase, your soul knows what to do. Hand the reins over and ask your soul to help you and guide you. Do this last thing before you go to sleep as that's when we get out of our own way!
