“You know, as a Libra, I am bound to balance. Connected to this idea that the world is right when everyone is happy, or at lease happy enough for things to feel good for me.”
The weeks are seemingly flying by as if to say, “Your time is running out…get out there and live your purpose!!” In order for this energy to flow and happen for me, I am being asked to work through all of my darkness and fear and in my journey this puts me in a space of relationships. You know, as a Libra, I am bound to balance. Connected to this idea that the world is right when everyone is happy, or at lease happy enough for things to feel good for me. In the more recent past, this meant that I was content sacrificing my own needs to be sure that those around me felt loved and validated no matter what the cost. I was content abandoning myself to keep the balance for others. Through deep soul work, I have realized that the abandonment doesn’t serve myself or anyone around me. It actually gives me a sense of falseness around my truth, although not intentional. I am done being so inclusive that I exclude me. With that brings a whole other energy of showing up in my truth and in some relationships, this proves to be heartbreaking for me. How to I bring my truth into a space where I have not been willing to do so in the past? Will they be ok and still love me if this is different for them? These questions provide an inlet for fear to strike my mind and distract me from what I am here to do within my purpose.
“The difference is that each person’s darkness is different and although situations may parallel, each of you (and me) are running through our own maze of growth.”
In the last couple of weeks there have been energies at work during the New Moon 6/24 and the more recent Full Moon 7/8. Of course these cycles carry the obvious beginning of new energies and journeys, and the fullness of their revelations. This last full moon though, brought something quite intense that struck so many deep at the root of consciousness. The energy began to challenge from the core of the fear which creates great discomfort throughout the balance of life. You might have experienced confrontations around your behavior or role within a particular group. You may have found yourself feeling wrapped up in the fear and anger that comes with being challenged in some way. No matter what the catalyst was for you, the purpose of this is to expose and open you for the next realm of being. When these energies exist in one, they exist in all and so while it may feel like you are getting bombarded with challenging discomfort, it is not only you. The difference is that each person’s darkness is different and although situations may parallel, each of you (and me) are running through our own maze of growth.
“Knowing that there is room to grow, room to meet others where they are at without putting yourself above them, and room to meet your own heart in its perfect existence is a blessing beyond anything you can hold onto here in the physical world.”
Weather this growth comes to you in the form of relationships or not, makes no difference! Growth is growth and it is how you choose to shape yourself with what you discover that makes the largest contribution to your heart, spirit, and purpose. The brilliance in all of this is YOU get to choose who you are in any situation. You can embrace the defensive and resistant energy that deflects the energy away from yourself or you can breathe in and really listen when the challenge is presented to you and see if you have room to grow and learn. Libra or not, you making the choice to own who you are and show up open and in your truth is such a beautiful gift to others. Knowing that there is room to grow, room to meet others where they are at without putting yourself above them, and room to meet your own heart in its perfect existence is a blessing beyond anything you can hold onto here in the physical world. If your darkness is coming into your visual path on any level, now is the opportunity to bring it into focus and embrace what does and doesn’t work from this space. Darkness is not meant to be hated, feared or terminated for without it, we would not know what the light was.
