Mercury Retro - Healer to the Soul

Mercury retrograde is a maintenance period, perfect for revisiting everything one has not gotten to in the last several months. The planet Mercury is associated with the god mercury/ Hermes who is the 'god of the unexpected' and divine coincidences.  Hermes/Mercury is the creator of new and sacred spaces.

Mercury retrograde is inevitable regardless of our best-laid plans; we might just get a taste of unexpected luck in a serendipitous coyote medicine type of way. Mercury makes us go to the picnic in the pouring rain and have a great time. It asks us to be fluid in our day and remain flexible, having as many backup plans as it takes. Whenever things seem 'stuck,' Mercury/Hermes introduces fluid movement laced with little chunks of surprise. Mercury retro is all about getting unstuck in thought deed and dreams forgotten.

Mercury in retrograde can be a deep healer of the soul.  It asks you to look at what you do not want to address, what you do not want to clear up, what you do not want to heal. The winged messenger sits pondering what he should be doing, what he could be doing, what he was supposed to do. Mercury retrograde is a magical time of slowing down, being made to stop and smell the flowers. It asks you to pay special attention to detail to pay special attention to what is small and minute.

it asks you to address everything that you are afraid of remembering, of becoming, of doing. Call those that you haven’t talked to in months or years or decades. Look backwards in time but don’t lick your wounds.

Get ready to plant new seeds in your soul.  Time beckons you to walk through the past, picture by picture, memory by memory. Having No regrets about who you were or what you did. Allow this mercury retrograde to youth you, to take you back to when you were a child of wonder. Recapture your youth through your memories and then shift those memories into fairy dust and sprinkle it on your life. See the kid in everyone around you and play like your life depends upon it.

As the vibrations of Mercury wrap themselves around you, they will escort you to the land of many knots (nots). In this land of many knots (nots) they ask you to look at what still binds you in your body, what still binds you in your heart, what still binds you in your soul.

Mercury retrograde asks you to look at what you do not want to address, what you do not want to clear up, what you do not want to heal. The winged messenger Mercury has a small limp at this time, as he sits upon a stone beckoning the sacred waters from the healing well to run across his stress lines. He sits there pondering what he should be doing, what he could be doing, what he was supposed to do. The strain upon his winged feet demands he slow in energy, in walk in thought.

Mercury retrograde is a magical time of slowing down, or being made to stop, to smell the flowers of your life. It asks you to pay special attention to detail to pay special attention to what is small and minute. Become as mouse and look closely at what needs to be addressed.

Time beckons you to her side as she walks through the past, picture by picture, memory by memory, thought by thought. The spirit of Time takes you past the fine lines of scrutiny. No bah hum bugs about who you were, what you were or what you did.

Every thread of you is woven into the beautiful tapestry you are now and even if you do not see the beauty reflected in your own eyes, it truly comes as a mirror from Source. Let those around you reflect that beauty with their kindness.

You are a child of God. You are a child of the Universe. Honor yourself as such. Honor yourself those around you in all of their choices. People are enmeshed and immersed in the quick sand of their thoughts. They are not listening and do not hear your woes as theirs internal sound is in Dolby digital surround sound.

Allow this mercury retrograde to youth you, to take you back to when you were a child of wonder, a child of grace. Recapture your youth through your memories and then shift and sift those memories into fairy dust. Youth is first a state of mind, then a state of heart and then a state of body. Allow your body time to catch up with your youthful thoughts. See the kid in everyone around you and play like your life depends upon it - because it does. Youthing gives you life, laughter gives you more life and loving gives you all life.

Gillian,
I thank you for you clarity in this message.
It was the perfect message for me this morning.
I needed to make a difficult decision as to cease or continue with my Bilical studies.
I realized, that my body, mind and spirit have been out of balance since I started this course.
I'm a fairly intelligent woman, but I go to my course and I know and feel I just don't get it.
The more I question why, the more I just don't get it.
It doesn't matter if I breathe or surrender and release.
It has been a huge burden hanging over me.
I take full resonsibility for my creation here.
So this morning I withdrew from my course and already I feel more connected to my soul.
Perhaps there was a certain aspect of the course I needed to do and once achieved that's all I needed to do at this point on my journey.
In Love and Gratitude

I AM ROSE, I know where you are coming from. One of the conflicts I had with Christanity is the insistance that the only way we can be "saved" is through Jesus and the sacrifice He made for our sins. That if we do not beleive in Jesus as the only way then we are damned. I still believe in many things written in the Bible, but I think some of it was misrepresented by the committee created by Constantine and given the task basically to creat the Christian religion. Then some of it is very much misunderstood by the theologians who interpurt the Bible. What little I have figured out about the old mystic knowledge, the Kabala etc, I understand that some of the things written especially in the old testatment, but also in what Jesus said reflects some of this ancient gnositic knowledge. It is just hard to understand and see the connections. The crucifixion of Christ reveals the path of the mystics, surrendering (not my will but thy will be done) dying to this world to be reserrected as a new being of light. This process was represented in ceremonies in the ancient pyramides as well.

Rose, you will come to know what is your truth, the wisdom that comes from your heart. That guidance will help you know what is the truth and what is not. I sat in church about a year ago wondering what all of this meant, what is my purpose and would I know how to do my part. The minister looked at me with blazing eyes and said "God will tell you what to do by speaking directly to your heart". God sends his messangers into our life ever day, but so many of us do not take the time to be aware of those messages, the synconicities, the impressions. I am just now learning to trust my truth and have the courage to step into world out of my closet. So, as you may have noticed, I am very vocal right now, here and else where. This is my truth, people can consider it and toss it aside, many will, but some might stop and think about it as I have with what I have read and have the urge to research and find what is right for them. But, I hope none will take the dogmas of what is preached to them by any religion as the only truth, that they will keep an open mind and consider everything.
