Expect something to manifest within the next 9- months. Until then, you’ll need to trust the process, even if you don’t understand it.
Some of you may have recently experienced, or are healing from a complete life overhaul due to external factors outside of your control. You may be questioning why this had to happen, why would any sovereign energy let you walk through this valley alone. You may have even lost more than you thought you would. But you’re being asked to trust the process. Your current situation does not necessarily reflect the truth. While your ego is asking “Why, why, why…. did this have to happen to me…?”, you’re soul knows EXACTLY what is going on. In order for you to manifest abundance into your life, you were called to let go of that which kept you in a lower vibration, but you held on. It may have felt like The Universe was asking a lot, and you were so focused on the potential loss that you could not see the blessings about ready to come through for you. Unfortunately we live in a world where keeping up with appearances is “the thing to do”--that to see any sort of struggle or failure is a sign weakness. When you hold tight to unhealthy ideas or habits to keep the friends who aren’t looking out for your best interest, or having to constantly give to that family member that seeks to take advantage, and you KNOW that when you leave their presence you’re feeling unfulfilled, drained, or used, The Universe will allow the obstacles and challenges to remain and grow in hopes that you get the hint that it’s time to detach and move on in a different direction. Yet if your ego doesn’t listen and you continue to remain in that energy or situation, The Universe will then step in to forcefully remove the person, situation, or lifestyle. See, the Universe listens to your soul, and when your soul is in anguish, but your ego convinces you to stay because of A.), B.) and C.) reasons, The Universe will swoop in and snatch that away from you. You may say this is what you wanted, but the reasons behind it were clouded by aspects of your unhealed self.
Within these next nine months, you will have some important choices to make in your life. If you are feeling bored or restless with where you’re at, remember that you’re not bored, you’re just uninspired. There is no need to rush forward into a solid decision. In fact that would be foolish at this time. Instead utilize this time to consider your options for now and do some research. You will need to challenge yourself and use your imagination to come up with a creative solution. This is a good time to experiment and to try new things. Step outside of the box. As you try new things, it may lead you into other avenues and opportunities. The path may not be fully illuminated right now, but it’s still there and you’re still on it, so keep moving. You will need to trust your intuition on where to go.
What you already know is inside you. Stop seeking answers outside of yourself--it only causes confusion and may allow your ego to convince you to remain in that energy or situation which you know is not longer for you. Advice is good, good advice is great, but the best advice comes from yourself. As you seek advice from others, it’s helpful to know that generally (not always) it’s coming from their own experience and knowledge which may or may not pertain to you. Thus you need to be discerning of the advice you accept. If what you’re receiving does not resonate with you; if you have even one inkling of doubt; if you don’t automatically feel a congruent “YES” in your gut when you receive it, then be discerning with the motives behind the advice given, because not everything is for you. And while we are still in Mercury Retrograde until next month, be extra discerning about seeking advice from outside sources. As a new rule of mine, I no longer obtain personal readings or advice from people during Mercury Retrogrades. To me, Mercury Retrogrades seem to be one of those tricky celestial transits that hit people in different ways, and you don’t know how it affects them on a personal or soul level. This is also why I abstain from custom gridding during this time--to avoid transference.
Finally, you have a big challenge within the next upcoming months as we move out of Leo Season and start heading into Virgo season soon. Virgos are all about perfection and doing things by the book. The season will be quieting down as we prepare for winter hibernation. This week, your challenge is to go within and seek answers in the form of meditation. A couple of days ago I was catching up with a friend about meditation and how difficult it is at times to sit there and “quiet the mind”. She told me that she had a hard time trying to keep still and quiet her mind, even concentrating on her breathing is challenging. I think people have this one-way view about how meditation is supposed to go. I believe that meditation doesn’t have to be sitting on a pillow and sitting still while you force yourself not to think. This can feel almost impossible for people with dealing anxiety and ADHD. I believe that meditation can take on many forms: painting, going on a run, taking a walk along the beach, yoga, or even cleaning the house. The purpose is to get you out of head and quiet the chatter for a moment. For me, meditation has many forms, sometimes it’s yoga, sometimes, it’s sitting on my patio listening to nature, and sometimes it’s sitting quietly on a pillow. Sometimes I have a really good mediation day, and sometimes I have a full week streak of distractions where I cannot quiet my mind. The point is to get into the habit. And even if you think you’re having a bad meditation session, you’re not. It all adds up, which is why they tell you to continue to do it.
