My Time

Last week I wrote about Treading Water.  About how exhausting it can be to keep your head above water when you are not sure which direction to take.  I was really hoping that this was going to be one of those quick cycles that moves in for a few days and then is gone.

Instead, when I talked with my Astrologer and Spiritual Guide of the past 29 years…  I got a different perspective and insight.

The fear, anxiety and worry that had me in its grips last week, although seemingly about the state of my business, was really about me.  They are part of the transitions and evolutions I am going through.  And guess what… they will likely be with me for the entire year.

But this year is not about being in a state of constant worry or fear… it is about energetically being willing to stay connected to my own truth.  What I know about myself.  Who I am in the world.  And being willing to stay present and open to what is happening in the moment, so that I can be in the flow.

UHGGGG… this is NOT what I wanted to hear.  I wanted it to be easy.  I wanted it to be a quick challenge and then back to my beautiful life.

Which of course is the point.  We are not confronted by challenging emotions because we need to experience hell.  NO…, we experience these emotions to help us understand ourselves better and to embody the internal strengths we have developed on our journey toward self-awareness.  To live from our highest potential.  To remember who we are.., instead of getting sucked into old stories.

You see, the emotions we are experiencing are familiar.  We have known them in the past.  But the person who is encountering them… is not the same!  We are someone new.  It is only when we begin to start recalling/re-telling the old stories and reminding ourselves of past experiences, that we can be seduced into thinking we are the same old person, dealing with the same old situation.  We lose ourselves to the past!

When I first heard that energetically these patterns of limiting emotions would be presenting themselves for the next 6 to 8 months I almost cried.  In that moment, I simply felt there was no way I could deal with their intensity for that long.

But, the truth is…, I can.  I’m game.

I am ready to stay present and connected to who I am becoming and my personal truth.  If it requires treading water or slowing down and letting go of long-term planning for the moment – I am up for this.

I truly believe that everything that happens is “for us” and not “to us”!  So during this time of recalibration and alignment, as situations or circumstances present themselves that attempt to lure me into past… I will remind myself of who I am… and remember, this is my time!

With Light, Love, and Laughter

  1. Hugs…remember Laura and the Bigger Game.. the game you play determines the person you are becoming.. the stories you share as you experience new days confirm the transformation. You are not the same person you were and I believe the challenges for us as they present themselves allows us to experience the different person we have become to celebrate our growth and development. So you must have made tremendous growth to get to celebrate the next 6-8 months of affirmation and the opportunity to say yes to our souls and say yep that’s what I meant .. I don’t go there anymore I go here now. 👊🙌👏❤️

    • Yes Charles, I agree. Things that happen to us are a gift from spirit to grow in knowledge of ourselves and to be rid of emotional things that we are carrying around in our subconscious that we are not aware of, which affect out outlook on our life. World around me always looks different when these unresolved issues come up to the surface and I work at clearing them. Thanks for sharing your insight.

  5. Wow, Charles…I can SO relate! I really love your perspective on how we are not the same people (as we were in the past) however, and so we are not looking at the same ‘ol, same ol’, as our egos would have us believe. We are in a New Paradigm…how CAN we know how to navigate it? It is both a time of paralyzing uncertainty and thrilling adventure! So grateful for your presence in this realm…

  7. STOP listening to anything outside yourself, outside your knowing that you are a creator God. When you make the outside world your reality and give it your focused intention, as a creator God you are giving it life to affect you. You are telling it you want to play with it. As God your vibration is greater than any vibration in the Universe thus cannot be affected by any lower vibrations coming at you unless you choose to make them your focus to explore their possibilities. Astrology has its truths, but you came to Earth to remember your greatness which is beyond any astrological energy pattern, for it is just a tool created by Prime Creator to teach you how great you are by the knowing that you are the pen ultimate energy in the Universe. You have the ability to use/play with any energetic pattern for your creative purpose/intention. So what do you prefer to create?
