Happy glorious Monday! How are you? How was the Full Moon energy of last week for you? This reading was done outside today whilst the rain was falling, but I had a huge brolly (umbrella) and was purging papers and things that no longer served me. Thus, had a roaring fire at my back. Also very fun and cool thing for me – I received a tiara in the mail from an unknown sender – so I wore it and felt regal, calm and blessed!
I’m so glad you are here and I invite you in this moment to drop into your body. Can you feel yourself here? Can you feel your feet on the ground, can you feel your breath coming in and out – is it at chest level, or deeper? If you are open to it, put your hands palms together and place them at your heart centre with gentle pressure on the sternum. Can you feel your heartbeat under your thumbs?
That is your Prana, your life force energy pulsing in you. Release the day for a few moments and breathe past your hands and feel your belly, ribs and chest expand and as you exhale through an open mouth do it with a sigh. Gently feel your shoulders relax and if your jaw is a tad tight place your tongue on the roof of your mouth. Let’s take another breath in and feel that gorgeous oxygen nourishing and charging all of your cells and then sigh it out. One more time – breathe in deep, deep into your little toe and sigh it out.
For the last few weeks I have been using a little prayer when I work with my cards, and if it feels comfie for you, I invite you to try it. “Allow me to see clearly, the solution or guidance that I need. So I no longer need to worry I am doing the wrong thing.”
The lovely stones that are working with us this week are Aventurine, Amatrine (see the band of Citrine in the Amethyst?) and Red Jasper.
Have you picked? Then let’s go look at the guidance you are meant to receive.
SOFTLY, SOFTLY, THE TENDER TOUCH
The feminine wisdom of gentleness can assist you now. When we are at a point in life where we want to attain greater things, but don’t necessarily have a proportionally greater supply of energy at our disposal, it is time to work smarter rather than harder. This is the way of feminine wisdom.
The feminine way is not about force. Nor is it about driving, striving, pushing or grabbing at what we can in order to create. It is about inviting what we wish for to come into the space we have provided for it – internally and in our lives. This method cultivates more energy, causes less stress and attracts what is desired. It is manifestation by invitation rather than by will or force.
You don’t need to push quite so hard to receive what is naturally coming to you. Your “push” comes from a place of uncertainty over whether or not you will succeed. You need to relax and have more faith in yourself. All things come in time – rightly and according to a great loving wisdom. Rebel against any voice of fear; within you or around you, that tells you otherwise. You have been working very, very hard. You have learned much and accomplished much but it now time to change your approach. Let go of any force in your approach to creation now. Everything serves a purpose and learning the benefits and limitations of the more forceful way of manifestation through effort and willpower was a useful lesson. You are now beginning to create on a far grander scale that is beyond what an individual can manifest through willpower alone.
DEFEND TO THE END, THE WORTHWHILE
Beneath the lies and illusions, pretty as they seem, you know what is worthwhile. All that is genuinely and truly essential for the heart to throb with life is worthwhile. Anything that dulls it or suffocates its vibrant aliveness, must be questioned, challenged, and more than likely cast aside, for the heart is our key to living an authentic life.
You are a sacred warrior – a defender of the heart. You have cried genuine tears of your own grief and also the grief of the world. You have felt the need to protect the presence of love, for whilst it is exceptionally powerful, it can too easily be smothered under lies and fear.
The sacred warrior is vigilant that the presence of love is not chipped away by fear, criticism, doubt or untruths. The darkness will be intelligent and sneaky. It will tell you that it doesn’t matter, that this one time you can forget what you promised, that you are just one person and that you can’t make difference. The sacred warrior within will fight with love and honour to be true to what has meaning, and never, ever allow it to be cast aside – even if it seems easier in the moment. You’re being asked to stay strong and stand your ground. What is happening, or soon will be happening is worthwhile. So hold tight. Ask for help to heal.
You are so loved. Your every need is witnessed and responded to by the universe. However, you sometimes forget this. You become swept up in the momentum of habitual consciousness, and you forget to take a moment to stop, breathe and be. In that moment you can receive the love of the universe that is receiving you. It will nourish you with contentment and energy. You have not done this enough so your soul is parched and drying out.
Energy has been going out of you but there is not enough coming back in. It is time to bring something back in for you.
Do you know how much joy the universe gains from being able to give to you? When you delight in what you receive, when you openly embrace a gift and are so happy with it, the universe is fully received by you. In this space there is joyful communion between you and life, energy flows more freely and magic happens. You are a radiant sun in human clothing. An exquisite life experience is your birthright. Enjoy it! Soak it up. All of it. Including the restoration of sacred rest. Forget your worries for a while. Switch off. Do something else. Let it all go and it will all flow.
Wishing you a fantabulous week and know you are exactly where you are meant to be at this moment in time and doing frigging awesome!
