Hello Beautiful People,
I know it has been a long time since I wrote a full Energy Thoughts Update. I have been offering Quick Updates here and there, and a message each day on social media, but I haven't done one of these in awhile. This morning I had the time to sit down and write what is happening now. I want to express my gratitude to everyone who shares my work and likes what I am doing, I truly appreciate you. I love writing these because quite honestly there is always information available, I just don't always have time. I hope to make more time for writing in my future. Onto the update.....
We are just coming off a weekend of the Scorpio Full Moon. This energy coming in pushes us forward to embrace the gifts of renewal of strength and courage as we are ready to move toward our dreams and goals.
Mercury Retrograde's shadow period is finally letting go of its grip on our life, I don't know about you, but the last two weeks during the Mercury Retrograde period so much schedule shifting/changes happened for me and I feel now we are on the tail end of it with some bumps and bruises to show for it. I actually have to say that I have been excessively more tired than normal and feel like I have battle scars to prove that I have done the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical work the last few months. Of course, I am still in the recovery times after the Flu Virus wreaked havoc in my life; and the virus has lingered on. But I don't think it is the Flu Virus that is making me tired, I think it is the constant healing/light infusion that I have been downloading that is creating opportunities for rest as my body works to catch up to my spiritual, emotional and mental shifts taking place within my DNA. By the way, that is true for all of you too--the only difference may be that some are more aware of what is happening while others may not be.
We entered 2018 with this vast amount of energy shift toward the light. The light continues to build on our planet, increasingly the light quotient daily and will continue until we reach mass consciousness shift. When will that be, you ask. I was hoping yesterday. hahaha Seriously though, Spirit is certainly trying to move us forward into the direction of our soul's path. It is like we came into incarnation this lifetime with a blueprint of what role we are supposed to play in the ascension of Gaia (Earth's Spiritual Name), and then coffee, or some other comforting drink, got poured all over it; and now we are arriving at the point where we are just about finished soaking it up carefully with towels, hanging the blueprint on the proverbial clothesline to dry so we can see it our blueprint more clearly. And if you have been living in the Northeastern part of the United States and other parts of the world that have been getting pummeled with ridiculous weather extremes, you are probably just about now, if not sooner, asking, where's the sun? I mean this quite literally, and figuratively. Where is the light? We need to have the light come out (read: come together). The light is needed and it needs to be more visible (read: needs to be easier to find one another, and no I am not accepting those that pretend on the surface when it is comfortable to be the light, I am talking about the warriors, the ones that stand in their truth despite all that is happening). Then, Spirit reminds me of what we may be forgetting is that perhaps we need those special glasses that come with age and wisdom, meaning we need to be at the right age and point in our journey for our awakening. This thought alone makes me a little crazy because our Timelines have been shaken up, trampled upon, revamped and new ones have appeared; and yet, we are still asking when.
I feel the last three weeks have reflected a massive change within myself not only on how I view the energy going forward, but on how I have been experiencing it and using it. As Mercury prepared to go direct, the planet Saturn decided it was time to show and begin its Retrograde motion. What does that mean for all of us? Is it over some of you may be hoping. Well, Saturn is here to help you explore the core parts of yourself that bring up discomfort, fear, and more importantly, require you to heal/clear/release them to get to the next place. (Read: Core lessons you have no choice, but to face and deal with. It is kind of like in the game of Monopoly, when the card says: Do Not Pass and do not collect $200.) Oh yes, Saturn is the mixer of the pot of thoughts/feelings/emotions/dramas/traumas that make a not-so-happy-meal, but sets you up to know when something is good; like your empowerment to use all the tools in your spiritual toolbox that you have garnered over this journey to create the life you want to be living. With that being said, Saturn will kindly give you plenty of opportunities, especially if you miss any, as it will be in retrograde for the next 6 months.
Yes, there are other planetary influences happening too, but I am not an astrologer these are just some insights into what is happening. I know you all think this is crazy, when will it ever end? I hear you. Sometimes, I sit here and twiddling my thumbs, thinking to myself, will it be today? Will my family get it? Will my twinflame follow his truth, the good news is, he does know what it is, but when and what will he do with it? Will our world ever stop fighting about stupid things and look at the bigger picture of what we need to do to relieve the old regime to replace it with light? Then out of nowhere, I meet someone, speak to someone and in conversation I get to experience their awakening/knowing, I realize that, "woah, this denotes huge change; and not only with regard to the person I am speaking to--with regard to everything I am wondering about. The surprises on this journey are endless, but even more than that the twists and turns, could be enjoyable, if we could remember that is all part of the plan. How do we remember?
Our mission now is to simply be present in our journey and one way is through surrender. In the last few weeks, I have found that the word surrender has taken on a new meaning for me. No, the definition has not changed, it is still what it says in a dictionary, but I have applied it differently than I have learned or have been taught it means. Often, the energy of defeat or giving up is worrisome to say the least, but in the Spiritual sense, I think it has a different intention. (This is particularly important for twinflames to hear.)
Recently, I kept getting the message to surrender, so have several of my fellow spiritual friends; and we did, or so we thought. We assumed it was to surrender to our journey and it turns out it was and it wasn't. I discovered that Spirit meant let go. Let of what you ask? (okay, so maybe you didn't ask, but I'm gonna tell you anyway.) We are in ta time of great change, and along with it is a time of great power to manifest that which we want to create. Remember dear hearts, in order to create, things need to come down--do you see the world around you, perhaps within you and those around you coming down? That is how we begin to rebuild/recreate/manifest anew. So what does all this have to do with surrendering? When we want to manifest something, we attach not only to the outcome, but to the way(s) in which we get there or not and that attachment is what causing a great deal of interference. Spirit is saying to surrender to the journey of manifestation. This is where the real work comes in, learning how to let go of the how, the why, the when, the where, and even sometimes the what of what it is we are trying to create. When the word surrender comes in to play, many of us subconsciously try to take more control of the things in our life, rather than loosen our grips/hopes/attachments. It is in learning to let go, that you surrender to complete trust not only with yourself, but in the universe to hear your wish and command it as so. I have always done this with simple things like my trip to Hawaii, my dining room table, and pretty much every other thing I have manifested on my journey; but I also recognize, that for me there was very little to no attachment to these things and they just showed up; almost miraculously, but my guides like to remind me that it is simply that I am remember that I am a master at manifesting. This is why I am preparing to teach Manifestation more and more, stay on the lookout for my upcoming classes in May and June where I will offer an opportunity to learn this wisdom more fully. Yes, it will require work, but not the work you think you must do.
The one message Spirit keeps conveying is: "Stop taking yourselves so seriously." It is meant to be a joyous ride through the blueprint, which allowed alternate routes to get where we need to be. Just like in the game Monopoly there are other ways to get where you are going, sometimes there are bleeps in the path and other times there are leaps in your path. Ask yourself, am I ready to jump? This astrological set up is the universe helping you take a deep breath and leap forward. The karmic clearing Saturn is providing can be viewed a bleep for some and for others as that opportunity to leap. Either way, my words of wisdom are just BE; be you in the moment, be present in the moment always and in all ways; above all, have fun and find your joy.
