Man, how many times have we heard those two words? I got to the place where they translated into “Run, Forest, Run!”.
So who can you trust? family, spouse, doctor, friend, neighbor? Can we trust our self?
Trust, just like Love, …if its to be of any help whatsoever, has to be an inside job. We are intelligently created with an internal guidance system built right into our core. Its part of who we are and how we’re put together. The trick is to get in the habit of listening to it (instead of our wounded self or any opinion).
For some of us its an intuitive knowing that doesn’t necessarily seem logical but then later we wish we’d followed it. For some its a gut response. And for others a feeling: something may feel off, unsettling, uncomfortable, etc.
The more we pay attention to our core sensory guidance, the more we realize we can trust it, trust our self. And that’s liberating.
It is good to know you, its vital in fact. Do you appreciate you? After all, you can be you better than anyone else.
Its helpful to check in now and then with yourself. Rethink your strategies, your message. Are you living in your highest way possible, the way that aligns with your ideals, values and your truth? Or are there areas you would like to upgrade? You can do that. Take a look at the state of mind and emotions you’re living in. Do you have destructive judgements about yourself? Did those come from you or actually someone else?
When we depend on the input of others in order to feel good about our self or our contribution, we’re giving away our own power. In this way the real truth of our being gets covered up, hiding our light under a bushel so to speak. Its helpful to ask if our beliefs or opinions come from childhood, school times or interactions with the world and are they held in place for no particular reasons. If so, we can drop those because they don’t really belong to us anyway. They belonged to someone else and we merely picked them up for a time.
We absolutely deserve to love and appreciate our individuality. We’re here for a reason and we can let the vision, possibilities, purpose and uniqueness that we carry shine!
May 2015 is a particularly important time to be alert to the glimpses we are intuitively receiving about the results of forming certain connections, associations, friendships and networks that assist our movements forward. When obstacles threaten to restrict our expansion, growth, transformation, blossoming, these encouraging glimpses will be important to hold onto. Our inner sixth sense, our inner wisdom doesn’t come from logic. Its at our core and is a dependable guidance system if we pay attention, listen within.
The energies this week may have us reflecting on the past. In fact, we may even want to “sugar coat” it to make it more palatable and easier to promote. We may feel pulled to find excuses for bad behavior or rationalize the mistakes and tragedies from the past. As we emerge into greater awareness of our truest nature, two things are very important. 1. Forgiveness. And 2. Break the conditioned patterns that are causing these cycles.
These two will bring us the freedom to be our highest expression of purpose and fulfillment. If you would like an appointment to work on these issues, I would love to hear from you. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Endings and completions are happening all around us and within us. These push us into new, un-charted territories. As Earth adventures, we can’t be “asleep at the wheel”, we are entrusted with evolution. Each of us has a role to play, a unique individual role with unique individual approaches, strengths and gifts that add to the whole family of man.
The upcoming Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon at 14 degrees Libra put in play the energy of change with balance, harmony and win/win solutions.
Listen to yourself, your intuitive self, for that is the call of your Soul. Breathe the harmony within.
Energy is neutral, neither good or bad. But what we do with it, how we use it can get crazy, or crazy-making, especially when we respond from our wounded self. Aries represents the identity or self; it brings up the questions, “Who am I?” and “What about me?”
We are all being challenged with Venus, Mars, South Node and Uranus in Aries. Not to mention Uranus and Mars are conjunct and squaring Pluto. Mercy! Be conscious of your highest, humor filled self and move, speak and do from that place to use this energy beneficially. Give yourself and others space. And be careful; use caution, awareness, alertness as you speak, think, walk, run and drive this week (and month actually).
As intense pressure builds, big breakthroughs are being birthed. Well that’s a bit of a tongue twister but intense pressure is everywhere, especially through March. What good is it? Its waking us from our dulled senses, pushing us into finding and creating positive, innovative solutions and requiring a willingness to let go of our own fears and stumbling blocks.
Definitely labor intensive, but worth it.
One of the best ways to get out of my own way is to get out of my head. My mind isn’t the place to make great decisions anyway. (I hear some of you laughing.) Actually, its where data is stored and some of that data isn’t even my thinking but the way I’ve been conditioned to think by well meaning (and not so well meaning) others down through the years.
If you tend to think, think, think, analyze the pros and cons, weigh a decision back and forth and turn it over and over in your mind you wind up with confusion and stress. No solution. The area where data is stored actually is not the same place where optimal decisions are made. Different place, different function.
Getting out of the head, the storage center, and being a part of life is the first step toward good decision making. Walk, run stretch, exercise, mingle, laugh with friends and co-workers, connect with life, appreciate good food, pet an animal, step in a mud puddle, etc.
Once out of the head, we begin to notice the rest of the body. The solution, answer or decision we’re looking for could be in a gut feeling, a quick flash of insight or waiting in the calm after high and low waves of charged emotions subside.
It’s more fun and more productive Not spending life in the storage unit. Let’s try getting out more.
