Woah! How is everyone feeling with these intense energy shifts? Trust me when I say that you’re not alone. Many people are having a hard time and dealing with some big shifts and frustrations surfacing in their lives right now. Just because they aren't showing it doesn't mean they're not experiencing it. Over the weekend I spoke to several friends who are having mini tower moments in thier lives right now. One friend is feeling the squeeze at work and I saw it on her face over the weekend. Another friend is feeling targeted by one of her close friends. And even myself... with having to work hard let go of a wound that was recently reopened and salted. Breath through this folks. If all you can do right now is breath, then that is more than enough. So as we head full force into eclipse season which is said to bring about fated events and grand shifts, in the grand scheme of things it’s nothing to be worried about, your higher self planned this for your higher good. And let’s be honest, you’ve probably been through worse. There is hope, and there is light coming in! This specific energy read is centered around the idea of you possibly employing a new craft or skill that will bring about some sort of abundance for you. Some of you may have been considering going back to school for extended learning, or launching a side business for profit, or utilizing a hobby to bring in more abundance into your 10th house of career. Some of you may have heard your soul's calling and now have have decided to take that leap of faith and shift your career into a completely new direction. This will require the need for some training and learning. Remember that when you align your soul’s purpose with your career, EVERYTHING falls into place as it should. Changes such as these require a lot of patience and time, so if you are feeling any sort of resistence, please be gentle with yourself and others. If you have already started your shift, these retrogrades may have had you running into road blocks, closed doors, or obsticals along the way that are slowing you down. How frustrating really... It may at times have felt like you were walking through thick mud and the effort was more exhausting than you may have bargained for. Please don't worry, it’ll pass and by October where the energy will shift yet again; this time you may find yourself with more energic vigor to hit the ground running at a faster pace. So consider this time as your resting period. The great news is that regardless of how slow things are moving at the moment, you’re still moving forward. The wonderful thing about things moving slowly is that you get to catch any mistakes before they are made and possibly end up being detrimental to you or project. So when you encounter these blocks or resistences, just remember that you are a spirit here on earth having a human experience. On the other side of things, if you have recently experienced any trauma or betrayal around this project or idea, have faith and forgive your trespassers (including yourself). I know it's easier said than done right? It’s hard to forgive in the moment when we’re really feeling the knives twisting. Keep plugging away at the work--no matter how small the moves are, it will eventually pay off and you will see fulfillment in the completion. Right now it’s vital that you keep your vibration high and only surround yourself with people and things that support your spiritual growth. This is important as Gaia begins her shift from a third density planet to a fourth density planet. Trust me, you want to be on the 4D train, but you wont be able to board this train until you heal you own trauma. So this week, focus on your goals, surround yourself with supporters and like-minds, and quickly let go of anyone's energy that doesn't match or raise your own. Believe in the direction you are headed and don't let anyone detour you. If you can maintain this, your abundance will be closer than you think.
