I seemed to have missed time this weekend to write a post. During this busy time, I had hoped to at least get 1 post a week on my blog. I seem to be busy doing the things I have to and not so much time doing the things I want to. We all have those times where responsibility trumps creativity and leisure. There are so many projects I am crunching at the bits to complete, plus keep up with a couple classes. Thankfully they are self-study and the projects will be there. But managing the angst sometimes feels overwhelming and chaotic. Mercury is in retrograde until tomorrow and Mars is sitting still. The tug-a-war has definitely been in my head! The energies of what is today, I usually feel a couple days in advance. So what is ahead for most, I am in the middle of – that is confusion and challenges with decisions, but the energy and excitement to do something that teeters on over-indulgence or overdoing. Therefore, I accomplish only what is required of me. Whether you are feeling this way now or in sync with the cosmos as they align, lets see what the cards say to help guide us!
I am asking the cards: “How we can overcome the chaos to think clearly and find balance in our actions & expressions? I am drawing a card from “the Enchanted Map” by Collette Baron-Reid. the card I drew is: “Protecting Treasure.” The essential meaning of this card is: You are always protected and Divinely directed.” The card goes on to assure us that we are safe although it may feel like a risky time no matter the fluctuations in the world. Loyalty is important, nurture that which you hold dear. Strengthen the bonds of friendship and their integrity. If you feel tested right now, know that a true and loyal heart always achieves its aim. Embrace your courage. I say – my wisdom tells me to brush the chaos away, focus on the now and feel you have it. Let go of all the limiting energy and focus on being organized and taking steps toward what is in your heart. Believe there are balanced amounts of time to accomplish what is in your heart, life’s responsibilities and self-care. Find balance with resting, exercise, good food and meditation over all the things you think you should be doing. Give yourself the time to rest and regroup so you can have a clear and focused mind/emotions moving forward. We all need to remember to reenergize once in a while so we can stay healthy and balanced. When we live in chaos too much we get frazzled and accomplish nothing because our energy is so divided & compartmentalized there isn’t enough energy to exert in any one direction. We just have all these little burst of thought and emotion that fizzle out into nothing and it compounds our overwhelm. Pay attention to how often your mind loops in worry, fear, lack, what you don’t want and why you can’t have it. Clear your mind and focus on the task at hand. Try to meditate every day to open your mind to let spirit & inspiration in. When you fail at meditation, just keep trying, some days are better than others. Journal about how you feel and what is going on in your life as often as you can, even if it is only 1 sentence. We have great tools, if we consistently use them, especially when we feel off-track. Remember our ability to manifest is like painting a canvas. As you paint the vision materializes and comes to be. As you open yourself to hear spirit and act toward what is in your heart, the reality shows itself in form.
