“Open your eyes to the beauty around you. Open your mind to the wonders of life. Open your heart to those who love you and always be true to yourself.” Maya Angelou, American poet and civil rights activist
Hold onto your hats this week! Not only is Election Day on Tuesday, November 8th (please vote if you haven’t), but the final lunar eclipse of 2022 will take place in the early morning hours! Whew! Lots of change and chaotic energies will be swirling around. More than ever please practice good self care. With the Blood Moon resulting in the lunar eclipse you might feel like you’re in emotional overdrive. Problems and emotions that you’ve been avoiding may surface. This is a great week to practice introspection and reflection. What is it that you’re ready to let go of so that new opportunities have room to enter?
Maya Angelou reminds us to open our eyes, minds, and hearts so that we can be true to ourselves. Beauty, wonder, love, and leaning into the magic of change and chaos can help navigate this emotional time. HH the Dalai Lama has said, “There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow. Today is the right day to LOVE, BELIEVE, DO, and mostly LIVE.” We are reminded to live in the present moment for that is all there is. Yes, our past experiences have helped to shape who we have chosen to be. Our future has yet to be created. Today, our choice is what will determine what our future will become. We are powerful creators and it’s up to us to choose what we will become.
This week I invite you to take time for you. Immerse yourself in beauty. Inhale deeply the beauty that abounds. Imagine it manifests as love joining with the love that you are. Exhale negative thoughts, fear, and what no longer benefits you. Make room for more love. Open your heart and choose to receive more love! You deserve it. If you are worried about the election outcomes just do your part and vote! Surround your ballot and choices with love. If you are releasing things from your past, surround them with love and reflect on what gratitude you might feel for the experiences.
Are you ready to lean into the magic of change and chaos? Don’t be surprised if you feel unsettled at times. Let the hidden problems and/or emotions be revealed with an open heart. Remember, you are not your problems or emotions. They are experiences that you’ve had. At your core you are love and a part of God/Goddess/All That Is, Source. You are ever evolving and making choices in each moment of where and what your next experience will be. Perhaps you will consider looking at each day in the way that Maya Angelou reminds us to. She has said, “This is a wonderful day, and I’ve never seen this one before.”
Choose to open your hearts to those who love you and be true to yourself! Rest in the beauty, love, and magic that surrounds you. Acknowledge and embrace it more consciously. What a blessing it is to wake up each day here on earth and choose what your experience will be! As HH the Dalai Lama reminds us, “Today is the right day to LOVE, BELIEVE, DO, and mostly LIVE.”
I’m looking forward to hearing from you and how you’re choosing to lean into change and chaos. And I’m sending you lots of love.
