Fatigue is an idea. It is a loaded idea. It carries a lot of baggage with it. It is rumoured that you are not supposed to get tired, as though something is wrong if you get tired. You earn your tiredness, beloveds.
Be a blessing to yourself. Make the world easy and brilliant for you today. Truly, make every day a day of rest. As it is, you seldom make Sunday a day of rest. Perhaps We want to define rest. Here it is: Resting means letting go.
How do you convince yourself, when you are already so tired, that you need to stop and rest? Especially in these moments, your thinking is irrational, and you can't see how you could possibly stop before your finish everything that you believe needs to be done.
Today is the last day of a much-needed vacation. After a year of full-on travel, I decided to give myself the gift of downtime. No airplanes. No emails. No phone calls or meetings. Just lots of rest, daydreaming, relaxation, movies, reading good books, sleeping late, laughter, and long, lazy visits with friends.
Last week, a good friend called to tell me that she lost her wallet. She was overwhelmed with the idea of having to replace her credit cards, debit card, license, etc., and the biggest stress of all was in not knowing exactly what she had lost. She hadn't kept a record of the contents of her wallet.
How funny that after last week’s LightBlast lecture ;o) on Fortitude we now are told to rest?! Actually, it is a beautiful continuation of Universal Law that supports Life. Rest is essential. Not only to our physical bodies, but to Creation. It is another way of saying equilibrium or balance. When we are at Rest, the direct flow has an opportunity to open and receive new information.
The energy of July spoke of the increase in intense feelings and experiences, compared to the past. Intense highs and lows were commonplace, and the feeling of heaviness, isolation and internal/external conflict were a theme at the lower end of the scale, with the highs being a greater feeling of freedom from old beliefs, rules, and ideas of how life needs to be, and also a rise in freedom of speech. Being unafraid to say what you want, or give voice to what has been suppressed.
For the last two weeks many have been asked to be still, rest and recuperate. This is occurring because there is a major adjustment in energy taking place on the Earth plane. You are truly about to go to a totally new energy, one that as not been attained by humanity before. As the curtain began to drop last month and you are starting to see more pieces of new information and energy come to light, you are now preparing to cross to the other side of that curtain.
This morning I was very inspired by an observation Nancy Ward made in her monthly Soul Transitions Vibe Report for September. I didn't even read the whole message, because once I read the first few paragraphs, I knew that the message for me was held therein. Nancy writes...
My dear friends, we love you so very much. God supports you dear ones. Even when you don't know how to achieve a goal, God does. Even when you don't know how to pay a bill, God does. Even when you don't know how to protect your children, God already knows they are His first.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. As your earth rumbles, quakes, and continues to erupt know that so many of you are feeling your own internal pressures, anxieties, shakiness, and waves of emotions. Be gentle with yourselves and surrender your fears and worries to higher power. God has not forsaken your earth dear ones, but rather is guiding her through her own growing pains.
