This week requires strength. We feel pushed to rush ahead with our emotions, because it is indeed a magical time. It feels like it's time to celebrate. However those emotions of reconciliation and celebration might just pulling on old energetic cords all wrapped up with old self-esteem and ego issues. This week is for asking if what we think we want is really best for our higher selves, and if not, it's about having the strength to let it go while seeking higher ground. It's a faith walk, because in order to move on from something, we have to also believe there is something out there for us to move towards. And that requires strength.
It might feel impossible, but this is the week to go with the flow. We must have the fortitude and patience of water, to understand that our presence in the situation is enough to gently erode the issue. We can’t allow ourselves to be rushed or persuaded now. We have to figure out where we want to go for ourselves. We might also be using certain vices (which are not innate vices but only become vices because of the way we’re using them) -- like friendships, relationships, sex, coffee, cigarettes, etc., to keep from obsessing about the things we don’t want to obsess about. But since obsession is a non-specific energy, we simply transfer the energy onto our distractions and obsess anyway.
We are changing right now, and the possibilities are endless. The landscape is shifting based on what we know we deserve, and who we now are based on all that we’ve been through. As things shift right beneath our feet, we must keep in constant touch with our higher power, surrendering our will in every moment. We must kill our ego by reminding it regularly that it didn’t make itself, and therefore has no idea what to do with itself. We must remain open to intuition, to signs and wonders, to knowing without knowing how we know. Most importantly, we must stay optimistic. We must know that if we have to let go of what we want, it’s only so the universe can swiftly replace it with what we need.
Our choices might upset those from our past who are used to us behaving in a certain way, but this week is about us keeping our own tender spaces safe. And truth be told, the places where we feel safe may have changed, and we may no longer feel safe with those we used to feel safe with. At the same time, we can’t let those people and situations dim our light. We have to shine our light so our new tribe -- the people who we do and/or will feel safe with, can find us. At the end of the day, no matter what promises we might have made, ultimately we belong only to ourselves. We know what’s best for us, and it’s out there waiting for us this week, if only we can muster the strength to walk towards it.
