I guess something (was it the New Moon or the Retrogade or the Christmas rush?) got to me, since this reading is coming a day late. This is an important thing to remember, for me at least, life DOES get in the way of things. And when it does, there are basically two options: get yourself together and push through (not always possible) or relax and just let go. So this time, I relaxed and let go.
The energies of this week is a lot of pushing through though. Maybe you are feeling really tired and even exausted, stressed, like you have too much going on and too much to take care of, and you are STILL pushing through. If this is the case, please just take a moment and ask yourself what it is worth? It might be worth a lot, or, when it really comes down to it, it might be something you think you have to do. There is also another option present – you might feel you have a LOT of energy and it feels like you can manage anything and everything. Enjoy this powerful energy, but remind yourself that rest is needed for you too. Christmas is coming up and this should be a time spent with those we really love, doing things we really love to do – like eating, resting and hugging. But these celebratory periods of time do tend to get out of hand, making us run around for weeks on end, trying to do all the perfect things to prove to those people that we really love them. We are conditioned to think that everyting need to be so special and so perfect while we end up totally fried, arguing with the ones closest to us over cabbage stew.
YOU are perfect, just the way you are. Stop for a moment and remind yourself about it. Take rest. And when you think you are done, take some more rest. Because this is the time to let go of the past. Let go of those beliefs that doesn't support you, let go of the stress you didn't choose but got sucked into, let go of the trials and tribulations of this year – this is the time.
The cards of this week are also telling us that there might be different energies at play here. Knight if Air has an unmistakable message that things are going really, really fast right now. Days are spinning by quicker, everything seems to have a different pace. This can be both very interesting and inspiring but also exhausting so make sure you are on the right side of the line here.
King of Fire is sending us in a diraction of focus instead and leading us towards the more energetic way of being. He tells us your are in charge, and you can both your own and many others way right now. As I mentioned earlier – there are two sides of this coin. You could feel this, but if you don't make sure that you do not force yourself into feeling this, thinking it is the right way to go. When I take a look at the collective state at the moment I can clearly see that a lot of us are energetic and a lot of us totally exhausted, a lot are inspired and a lot are totally drained, a lot are feeling very creative and a lot are just plain bored. This might also happen within you – one day you could feel the one side of the coin and the next day the other. This is just life, always changing, always showing us something new. Be MINDFUL about it, about each moment of every day and the changes that occure – but most importantly about YOUR needs.
And at last we've arrived at this wise goddess, the strong and powerful Brigit. She is reminding us that we ARE held and taken care of, whichever situation we are finding ourselves in at this time. This is her message: ”First, be quite clear about your intentions. If you’re unclear, then confusion will lessen your power and force. Like a candle in the dark, be very clear and bright in what is acceptable to you in this situation. Make no mistake: I will guide and protect you. And yet, think of the unparalleled rise in your own viewpoint if you are to stand up for yourself, and speak up about your needs and your deepest truth! Now is the time to touch your power, for its heat and flame will ignite your passion, which will propel you forward in countless ways. Even in the face of fear, you can still stand up for your ideals and your truth. Be unwavering, and make your stand today!”
I am with you, love! Supporting you, always.
