A quick note this week, as I know most of you are run off your feet round about now – I’ve just got back from the shops, after promising myself I would not go near them today… why I do it I will never know. It felt like a pressure cooker out there, much like the rather tricky (to put it mildly) planetary line up for tomorrow and the next few days.
This time is often rather challenging anyway, with family get togethers triggering our issues and often igniting old power struggles. It can also highlight loneliness for those who don’t have family and make us feel the loss of loved ones more deeply. Let’s reach out to those who are alone in the next few days and embrace the true spirit of Christmas which is Peace and Goodwill to all.
Whatever’s going on for you, wherever possible, step away from the drama, observe your reactions and breathe. Light a candle, be silent for a few moments and connect to your inner star, to that spark of love that resides deep inside your heart.
On that note, to each and every one of you, thank you for sharing your life and journey with me. To my friends old and new, colleagues and clients – each one of you is a teacher to me and I appreciate you so much.
Look forward to journeying together in 2014.
Today’s full moon in communicative Gemini opposite the expansive, truth seeking Sun in Sagittarius, challenges us to look at how what we believe about ourselves and the world, our visions for the future and how they relate to what we are actually putting out there. We’re being provided with a truth seeking laser beam this week, which can cut through layers of illusion, as long as we’re prepared to use it.
I recently heard this line, by Iyanla Vanzant which really struck a chord in me. “Our eyes adjust to the level of deficiency present”. In other words, our lives will adjust to wherever or however we believe ourselves to be lacking. Our beliefs and visions are what pull us forward, whether they are positive or negative, so it’s really important that we examine them if we want to grow and flourish. “I am” is the creative force of the Universe, so anything following those words will naturally create our reality.
So… if we are repeatedly stating or thinking “ I am poor…I am lonely… I am single… I am not good enough… I am too old”.. then guess what our reality is going to adjust to?
Take some time over the next day or two to examine and if possible journal what the deficiencies are that you are holding about yourself and whether they’re true or false. Be aware too of whether your words are in alignment with what you really want, or if you are censoring them in order to gain the approval of others. Are you living authentically or pretending to be something that you aren’t? Where can you make adjustments so as to be more true to yourself?
Ask the questions and then just become the observer and notice what comes up. With all the planetary action “up there” this can be a very powerful trigger for huge change “in here”.
