This year has been challenging for most. The energies again and again have thrown us back on ourselves, our most deep seated issues. It has regurgitated our past. The passage has been rather like spelunking, going into the dark, deep passages, sometimes without a torch to light the way. A journey with no map, into the dark that is our shadow self.
Now that we have thrown our guts up, what was the contents in our stomach? What did we digest? What came back up either whole or in fragments and chunks? Sorry to use this metaphor but it seems to fit well. It’s like recovering from a long illness: if you get up and run too early you might fall into a relapse, and no one wants that.
We are still (and continuously) letting go of that which no longer serves us. For some it was a job or career that has run its course, for others a wake-up call regarding health and well being. A time of cleaning out the closets and the basement.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel (and it’s not an oncoming train), so be gentle with yourself and others for the time of advancement is at hand. Don’t carry former worries and woes into the current cycle, realize they are coming up to be let go.
There will be a lot of thinking (and talking) about what we are and where we are going. Be mindful of your self talk. Look at yourself, not critically for a change. Look at your physicality. What can be improved? This can be a good time to pay attention to your mental diet as well as your physical one.
This time can be emotional. Be sure you watch what you are saying and thus setting into motion. We are almost through the tunnel (or the birth canal) don’t change directions now, keep going, stay the course. Keep it positive, be productive, stay proactive. Be not reactive. Do your best.
As you place yourself, your health and well being and your personal interests at the top of your own list what needs to come next will become clear. Listen to your body.
Above all… Hang in there!
Sending Love and Blessings,
