Did the Supermoon bring about monumental shifts in energy, or is it just me??? With the moon impacting the tides, and with humans consisting of so much water, it makes sense that we would feel the pull, just as the tides do.
I am not just talking about the election, but last week and this week, things have been… INTENSE. It’s been on a personal, professional, and cultural level. I have found myself willfully drawing healthy lines in the sand on what I want to place my attention and to give my energy. I recognize that when I don’t do that, I am left feeling like a Mack truck hit me at the end of the day – sacrificing my peace of mind to please someone else. Perhaps you can relate?
Over the past 10 days, things seem to have been swinging from good to bad, then back to good, then back the other way, sometimes within the same day. The energy is only being magnified by those who are stepping out of the shadows to have their voices heard.
~ Taking long deep breaths helps to slow down, to process levels of change which seem hard to process.
It is so wonderful that people are coming alive to have their voices heard, if only it could come through peaceful communication and conversations and not violence. We are living such a dichotomy, on many levels. It is difficult to breathe in this space. When I find myself knocked to my knees, or involuntarily frozen, I start to think about all the people and things for which I am grateful. It revives me every time.
I love reading posts where people have shared when in their “lostness” or despair, they chose to do something good for someone else – by donating their time, energy or resources – in their time of need, feeling stronger and happier just by making someone else’s life better. Wouldn’t it be terrific to have more of THAT? And wouldn’t be amazing if that were contagious? Just the thought of it makes me smile.
That being said…when humans are still too intense, I gravitate to animals – to the gentle spirits who want only to love and be loved. Pure. Whole. Non-judgmental. Blissful just to be alive. Isn’t that why we are here? Thank goodness we have them as sweet, soft, sometimes spunky, jubilant role models.
I am an out-of-the-closet quote junkie. I have snipped scores of them, but there are a few that I go to when I need some deep and serious guidance. I share them now, that they may do the same for you:
“You must always do the thing the thing you think you cannot do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
“When life puts you through a tumbler, it’s your choice whether you come out polished or crushed.”
Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
“If you knew who walked beside you at all times, on the path that you have chosen, you could never experience fear or doubt again.” – Wayne Dyer
May we be guided by grace and be kind to one another right now and always.
Only the best ~
