Some weeks it feels so incredibly difficult to keep up and last week took it right out of me. There is a curious energy that snuck in to remind me that I have pushed myself past the limit and not just physically, as it showed up in a burst of emotions as well. This is a reminder that it is so important to scan my heart, mind and body when these bursts arise, as they become sentences in a paragraph of the story of my own expansion and evolution. If I am not allowing some form of surrender, I will begin to feel confused and bewildered. Once the emotions made their way through, it felt as if the world became calmer as I was acclimating to my new sense of things. Before I could really allow it to sync in, I was back at life again. By the end of the week it felt as if I would not have the life source within to embrace the weekend. What I recognized is that the Universe has a way of creating space for me when I will not.
It seems that in the last few years specifically, more and more people are awakening to their spiritual or life’s purpose. When this energy shows up as it did last week, it can bring in confusion, disorientation, and express a deep well of emotions attached to all of the stories you have been conditioned to believe about who and what you are. As this awakening cracks the surface, you begin to recognize that this conditioning has forced you to develop a false sense of self, or in other words, brought in behaviors that you now see as inauthentic. The world begins to look different as your eyes open, not physically but spiritually…energetically, and suddenly every single thought, every interaction with the world becomes an opportunity to shift or transform yourself into who your deepest self is. The confusion sets in because suddenly nothing is what it was and sometimes your mind cannot wrap itself around why it all appears different. You may sense a little disorientation as your physical body must also make changes to accommodate this influx of newness, such as changing the foods you fuel your body with, for example. Each of these shifts that occur, are flushing emotions buried deep in the heart and body, up to the surface. You can no longer turn a blind eye, you must allow them to move through so you can feel and experience this new peace and settle deeper into your truest heart.
There was a feeling of being wiped out at the end of the week. The highs and lows were a lot to absorb and integrate. Maybe some of you found yourselves asking why you were feeling so mixed up and a bit out of sorts. Well the week was building up to a Full Flower Moon that happened on Sunday the 22nd. This last week was a big energy to wrap up all of the places within you and in your life that do not serve your greater purpose. An opportunity to embrace that assertive being you are so that you can own it! The ability to see where you have over-committed yourself and redirect your focus and flow. By the time you recognize that you are juggling too many things on your schedule, the Universe is already prepared to help slow you down, and sometimes that looks like getting a cold, or plans falling through, sometimes it’s all the things that had to be done took care of themselves. Whichever way this presents itself to you, take a moment to connect and witness what has led up to that moment. It truly is an opportunity to take some time for self-nourishment and recharging your body, mind, and spirit. Go for a walk in nature, visit the local farmer’s market and grab some local grown veggies and make a delicious meal to enlighten your body, take a movement class, sit and meditate and experience the stillness of your body and mind, do something that will serve your soul as you have clearly been given an opportunity to do so.
When weeks like this come up, I get out my list of ideas I save for me, weather it is reading a book, trying a new Yoga class, visiting a trusted energy healer, or trying a new meditation from YouTube. I know that if it is on the “ME LIST” it is going to rejuvenate and fill my heart so that I can begin with new eyes tomorrow. This life provides us with many great awakenings that offer up a new way to exist within the very core of who we truly are. If you can allow yourself a chance to be present and see these waves for what they are as they flow through, you begin to gain a new perspective and a new way of existing that will not only fill you with light, but will tap the light on for all those around you. Much Love!
