Healing: Stay Flexible and Choose Joy
We are in the midst of birthing a new energy upon the planet. Bringing change onto the physical plane comes with it times of uncertainty and unexpected events, as with any birthing process. It is difficult to know how everything is going to go and releasing the old can cause anxiety, even hesitation in our forward movement. We are not in control and truthfully, that control has always been an illusion.
A way to see this from a different perspective is an analogy. Imagine you are on a river in a small canoe. You have a paddle to control your vessel, but you do not control the river…and if you somehow lose your paddle, what do you do? Do you become afraid, concerned you cannot control what is coming ahead, or do you relax, take initiative and send out a prayer for help, possibly someone along the shore can help…or possibly your own ingenuity as you realize the river is not so deep and that you can simply guide the boat to the shore by jumping into the river and leading it by its rope.
We all make choices along our journey…it is how you choose to engage that determines the difference between pain or pleasure. The pleasure that comes from choosing to be happy, and content; choosing joy and peace as your foundation, and reminding yourself daily through your spiritual commitments to self that you are not the doer. It is your personal responsibility how you respond in your life. No one else’s.
Planetary Energies that are affecting us now…
Mercury is retrograde until 6/22 – Please be careful about what you say. Rethink, edit, clean out/organize files, revisit relationships – ask yourself, what do you bring to the table, and what feeds your tender heart? Also be careful with electronic stuff – your compute/car/phone/etc
Solar Eclipse on 6/10 – The eclipse in Taurus is all about looking at healing family, money, security. This influence continues for some time…
Mars in Cancer opposite Saturn = push/pull – a build-up of energy that can trigger negative reactions. Choose your words carefully and take time to meditate daily. Don’t forget to do pranayamas to create balance in your brain/mind.
