Hello my dear readers.
We are approaching the end of June, and I have to say "What a ride!". The past few months have been energetically intense for me, and as I talk to other light workers and friends, I find that many of them are also feeling some big shifts happening in their lives.
We have been feeling more sensitive and also no longer afraid to feel and express our emotions, standing up for our truths.
Some days can be quite dark and challenging, but I see them as part of our growth, a time of transformation and realization, similar to a process of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly.
If you're going through a painful phase, I encourage you to remind yourself that it's not permanent, and you will eventually come out of it, hopefully with a new awareness and realizations.
Although we can't control all of the external circumstances in our lives, we still can make a choice of how we are going to face them.
Also, recognize that you don't always have to walk your path all alone!
I've had phases that I felt so trapped in my own story and at the same time didn't think anyone could help me or neither I should ask for help. This approach can make the challenges we are experiencing even harder to bear.
So I allowed myself to let go of the idea of having to keep it all under control and reached out to other fellow healers for guidance and support. Ahh, it felt good to know I didn't have to endure it all by myself.
Yes, there are moments that you have to sit with it alone, to go within, to reflect, and to do the healing work on yourself; and you can also be open for healthy connections that will assist you in your process.
If you don't feel you can open up to your close connections, look for outside support from other healers or support groups in your community. Once you decide to reach out to others, you will be surprised to find out that there are people willing to help you on your journey.
Back in March I started contemplating the idea of moving, but it was just the planting of the seed, as I hadn't thought about where to move to.
Then in May this feeling of needing a change got even stronger that I could not longer ignore or deny it, so I started exploring different towns in order to help me choose where my new home would be.
I spent a whole month away, working remotely, immersing in the experience and observing, in order to find the answer to my quest. I have considered several places, which led to more confusion. So I started eliminating some of my options by weighting the pros and cons, and finally I've narrowed it down to two locations, which helps my search to be more focused and it brings me relief. I am trusting the process and it will all come together in divine timing.
Perhaps there are no wrong decisions, it's all part of our learning process which gives us the ability to experience life in different ways.
The important thing is to make our decisions based on what feels right and true to us. Although we are here to share life with others, we also have to keep in mind our own needs and desires, and make choices that feel aligned with who we are now and with what is important to us.
I recently went to Sedona (Arizona) and connected with the magical and intrinsic beauty that it has to offer. The energy there felt very soothing and grounding to me. I spent some time rock stacking and balancing, as I found it to be a great exercise for patience and persistence.
As I engaged in this activity, I thought about the concept of building solid foundations, how sometimes we have to stumble, to mess up, to collapse, to restart, as we try to create something of value in our lives. Something that can be sustained despite the challenges that will eventually arise, since we'd be strong enough to endure it and to keep working on our goals, on our ourselves, and on the relationships that matter to us.
The pain and the difficulties that we overcome can become our special gift to help others that are going through similar situations that we did. We can choose to endlessly wallow in the past circumstances that weren't pleasant and lament our losses and mistakes, or we can use them to push us forward, to add value to life and to be of service to others in need of support and a helping hand.
Your feelings matter. Your dreams matter. You matter.
Allow yourself the opportunity to rise and even start over if you have to. Every ending leads to a new beginning.
If you are looking for support on your journey, don't hesitate to reach out.
