One of my good friends always says 'Let go and let God' when he is involved in a situation that is beyond his ability to deal with. It's his way of acknowledging that there is a point at which we have to let others learn their lessons in their own way and time and within their own power. How many times do we hold someone up energetically, see them in their best light, hold the highest intention for them and for their lives only to have them go right back to their old ways because they can't learn and grow within our timelines and don't heal when we force them or try to do the work for them.
With Mercury in a challenging retrograde all month April was not easy. We may have had some powerful lessons in releasing things which did not serve us, seeing others as they are and accepting others' in their own energy and light, all of which take us back to ourselves and what we want in our lives. Our path is individual and while we may have others walking beside us, we have to learn to put ourselves first.
Was last week hard for you? Were at the point where you just couldn't take it any more. You're not alone, we all felt that way. This week closes out the June eclipse cycle, finally. It's not an invitation to be glad it's over and go back to our old habits, though. It's time to integrate the learning and follow a different path. Read on...
As we are watching the old world paradigm wind down we are beginning to see the world as it truly is, without the benefit of the blinders, rose-colored glasses or other means we use to hide the aspects of life we do not want to acknowledge. Our eyes are now open to where and how we give our power away, allow others to take control, and avoid responsibility for ourselves.
Everyone is familiar with the phrase ‘the dark night of the soul’, which describes a point in life where everything looks bleak and hopeless. We experience this when a life event that we feel is out of our control happens to us and everything in our life changes. But I think the phrase ‘dark night of the soul’ is incorrect because the soul doesn’t have dark nights, it knows exactly what is going on and waits for us to be open to the peace, knowledge and transformation it holds for us.
What do you do when you try hard to please someone and no matter what you do they refuse to see things your way or to compromise with their position? They want their way, no matter what and they want you to honor their path, fears and needs no matter how much it costs you in terms of time, energy, or emotions. You are at an impasse and you have to make a choice that you don't want to make-to tell them 'no', and then deal with the consequences of their anger, do what they ask and then be angry with yourself or walk away and risk that they will cut you out of their life (which may actually be a good thing).
January holds some wonderful surprises for us as another year of amazing new energies begins to unfold. Chances are you have already begun to see movement in your life and this will continue throughout the month and extend throughout the year. There are several themes for January which are personal responsibility, balancing your needs with those of others, being in energetic integrity and using your personal power.
There comes a time on our spiritual journey when we run out of road, we have to admit that we cannot go any farther and we have three choices, to quit, to figure out how to continue on the current road or to find a new road. Each choice has its benefits and drawbacks, one is not better than another. What we choose depends on how much awareness we have and whether we are ready for the new road, which could be anything from a completely different road to a new mindset to a new way of looking at ourselves.
A newsletter reader wrote to me this week, asking about how he could create a miracle in his life. He described some of the tragedies he had experienced in the last decade, which included financial problems, the death of his wife, losing his house and his career, as well as his hope and confidence. But he had not lost his dreams, he just didn't know how to make them happen in the face of what he saw as overwhelming limitations.
Who you are, your life purpose, the purpose of your life, the journey you create and the choices you make are all based in truth. Truth is not given to you or created for you, it is a vibrational frequency that you create based on your judgments. In other words, truth is a perception that is created when an energy flow that is frozen by a judgment. Each person has their own truth and you are joined to others through the intersections of your truths.
