Hi there, it’s been five months since I last wrote a full blog post. That is probably the longest I’ve not dropped in here to share. Since February a lot has been happening, moving and changing. I’ve found shorter posts on my Facebook business page easier to manage lately. Today’s ‘short post’ just kept flowing and before I knew it I had a blog! It feels great to be back.
How have you all been travelling over the past three weeks? There are some large alignments within the planets happening right now. It’s eclipse season, and our lessons may be coming at us thick and fast. Have you felt this?
This Friday/Saturday is Full Moon and a total lunar Eclipse where we may start to feel the old ways of living and thinking start to wash away. Transformation is constant, whether we choose to accept it or not. There is no going back, only forward and this can be uncomfortable.
For me this eclipse season has seen me tried and tested by the universe to make sure I am staying in my power, being authentic to myself and breaking old habits. I’m a yes person, I find it terribly hard to say no, even when I feel the situation is all wrong and I don’t want a part of it I more than often agree to things when I know deep down I shouldn’t be.
It does seem completely bonkers to do things I don’t want to, but I’m a people pleaser. It’s part of my make up to serve and spread the joy, making sure everyone is looked after and happy. However, this constant over giving then drains my resources and can leave me limp. Everyone else is happy, and I’m left worn out.
My lessons have been presenting thick and fast this July. I’ve been tested in the realms of saying no with kindness and with everyone’s best interests at heart. Not just once the test has come up but at least three times.
I knew straight away when one of my significant tests showed up, and I had to say no and gracefully turn away from an offer I received. Something wasn’t feeling right, and the situation wasn’t ticking all my boxes. There were some beautiful big yes’s for some things, and some big fat no’s for others. More no’s though were apparent. I consulted my pendulum, sat in meditation, talked with my heart and asked my channels for guidance. It all came back to no.
Turning to my oracle cards for a final confirmation sealed the deal. This card actually flew out of the pack and landed face down on the floor. When I turned it over there was no more searching; there was my answer. Listen to what I have already received and know deep in my heart.
I did feel nervous about saying no, I hate letting people down but I would be letting myself down if I agreed. In a similar situation a few years ago I went against my guidance and pushed on. It didn’t end well at all. It even ruined a friendship along the way. This time around I recognised it was the same lesson so stopped to breathe before making the decision final.
I used my nervousness as a bit of a push to not give into fear of how other’s may react to my decisions to say no. Using the nervous energy as a positive resistance to achieve my goal was empowering.
It felt amazing when I did. There was lightness, the knot in my gut unravelled, I stopped with the obsessive thinking, and I knew that no matter what the response to my decision would be ‘I’ felt right about it. Luckily there was no two-year-old tantrum from the other side. Plus no one can force me to do something, especially if the person comes at me with anger. If they did, then I would be glad I walked away.
The test was great for me to show I can say no and not fall into guilt or be swayed to say go back on my decision and say yes.
Have you found yourself being tested too recently? How did you manage and what did you learn? Journalling is a marvellous way to record your musings, trials and tribulations. Then later down the line, you can look back on your notes to reflect and celebrate how far you have come.
We are all stepping up into a new world, nothing ever stays the same, and it’s hopeless to try and fight it. Move with the times, rise to your challenges and evolve.
I wish you all the best of luck with whatever you are learning from right now.
Full Moon in Capricorn is 4:20 am on Saturday 28th July in Perth, or 9:20 pm on Friday 27th if you are in London. Don’t forget to put your crystals out for a cleanse and sparkle; they will love it!
If you are keen for some Yin Yoga & sound healing on Full Moon, Gong Yoga is at the Monad Centre, Joondalup, Saturday 28th July at 5:30 pm. Tickets and information here.
Until next time which hopefully won’t be as long.
