New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo with Mercury in Retrograde
God’s grace is here, behind all the curtains we have drawn with our thoughts, wishes and aches for something other than breathing in the light of life. Truth is really as simple as one breath. It is each of our tasks alone to notice how we may be blocking this deeper state of being. If we are in any way feeling negative or resentful of any tiny thing, we are in our own way. We have closed a door to something else mysterious and wonderful. This is not something to be sure of, but to wander around in. Not to wonder about but to be in a state of wonder.
We must learn to unlearn our heavy conditioning toward feeling shitty and stuffing the shit with more shit. This is a process of slow unraveling. It takes time, patience, forgiveness and practice, practice, practice. Let us realize that filling our pockets with small stones of blaming others, technology, liquor, sugar and other distractions only weighs this negativity down. Meditation, yoga and other ‘healthy’ practices can also become addiction if we aren’t paying attention. Unfortunately, instant gratification really isn't all that gratifying. Freedom is a way, not a what and if we are not full, our appetites satiated with something of lasting, divine substance, we are not free to experience anything else but this insane cycle of feeling not enough, not good enough, too much, etc.
We have the power now to redefine our life in balance between these highs and lows. Let us access a new energetic frequency, where our roots can be buried deep into the earth with solid presence and self-knowledge, our antenna can suspend gently above our heads, taking in only what is needed with grace and humility and all chakras in our bodies can be spinning in seamless alignment, no longer frustrated by the constraints of the old ways.
We may have awareness that we are contributing to this cycle but do not know how to stop beating ourselves up for it and do not know what to do instead. If we are in the throws of this, let us NOT GIVE UP our efforts. This can be a very tricky part of transformation. Let us practice enough of the correct kind of self-love to be able to see and treat this pain and our collective culture of repression, anxiety and running away as immensely valuable. Let us see it as one giant carnival full of incredible opportunity to awaken and learn how to live life from a different inner space. Without one, we could not achieve the other.
If we begin to understand that nothing is wasted, we can let go of how we have failed and adjust our focus. From this new inner space, 'abundance', 'higher-self', 'consciousness', 'love', 'gratitude' and 'awe' become new words filled with new meaning. This is something to look forward to, but without hard striving. Perfectionism must be left in dust. Change cannot be forced into submission. Self-punishment will not lead to kindness.
Death must accompany re-birth and although mourning may take place, this process is not something to be mourned. It is not meant to be easy nor painless but it can be a grand journey, filled with more strength, courage, brilliance and unconditional love than we can possibility imagine and this is just a baby step! This one step alone is worth the changing and in the end, we will without a doubt know we chose wisely.♡
