I'm sure you've heard the saying many times: As one door closes, another opens. With this current energy theme you may have found yourself having to push a littler harder to close the door behind you. Many of you have felt frustrated over having to address the past, be it old relationships surfacing, patterns re-emerging or having to say no repeatedly. You may have felt disrespected and felt that people aren't honoring your evolution. This is about you skyrocketing forward past old fear. The goal is always to evolve. But part of evolution is saying goodbye to what no longer works, that which you've outgrown, and embracing the new, and that which is calling you. The biggest gift you can give yourself in navigating this energy is your voice. As well, rather than be upset by this growth spurt, appreciate the strength you're gaining. A snake sheds its skin, day becomes night, its nature, it's divine order for things to end and things to begin. The ego resists this ebb and flow because it wants control. Don't let the expectations or opinions of others sway you from your beautiful progress. You are not validated by other people, you are validated by Source and by spirit. You're being guided to leave the past where it belongs, behind you. And you can do so with love. The more you honor and celebrate your evolution, the more you'll naturally attract the new energies that will also honor it. The more you try to be seen by old energies, the more stuck you'll be.
Here's an exercise for you: Think about four people you most admire. If you want to take it a step further and get crafty, go for it, and make a collage of them to keep above your desk or in your vision book. What quality is it that these four people share? There will be an obvious thread to the admiration of these people. For example, perhaps they are all risk takers or they are all highly creative or they all speak their truth fearlessly. Whatever that quality is, that is what you are most desiring to strengthen and connect within yourself. Come up with a list of three things you can start to work on that will build that quality or characteristic in you. And begin to practice it daily.
Let's see what insights our elemental friends have to offer us this week...
Another saying you're familiar with is: You've nothing to fear but fear itself. And it's so true! Lock it up with love. The past should remain there. And you should enjoy journeying forward. New experiences and learning are the whole point, the fruits of life. Humans often believe things should last forever and they are hurt when they don't. But how boring would that be? Change is where it's at. If you're not growing, you've given up. Don't waste time and energy trying to drag people forward that aren't supposed to be there. Let them go with love and (they show me rubbing palms together in delight) get super enthused about who is ready to come in! Because if something needs to die, it's making space for something needing to be born. We urge you to remember that spirit is your unconditional source for everything. Don't get caught up looking outside of yourself because you'll surely be disappointed. Create from within, stay the course, and you're bound to be delighted. Big dreams require big faith and (they show me a boat passing through a storm) navigating some big, choppy waters from time to time. Us elementals love rewards, we're all for indulging. But we also understand there are more important things than the reward, such as the journey itself. And that's the real challenge you're all being faced with right now. Can you appreciate all aspects of the journey? It's easy to like the sparkly bits but can you love the dark bits too? Holding onto the past is letting fear grip your future. Letting go of the past is kicking fear in the butt so it becomes a motivator instead of an enemy.
The theme this week has many of you feeling frustrated and impatient. The purpose behind your recent experience is to gain clarity on what you want and don't want in your life. Then you are being asked to take it a step further and commit to it through decisive action. If you find yourself saying one thing but doing another the frustration will mount. And if you find yourself knowing what you want and committing to it, you may find some impatience creeping in. Your elementals say the only way to know what you do want is to first know what you don't want. Hence the frustration. And another big challenge can be having clarity but needing to honor your favorite little friend called time. The recent full moon amped up feelings of frustration but it was coming from a great place: increasing awareness. As I like to say: Awareness + action = amazing! And that's what this current theme is all about. You may have the awareness but are you following through on the action? You may be taking fearless action but are you moving from conscious awareness? Let's check in with our elementals for some insight.
Impatience and frustration cause each other. Many of you have been very scared to honor your awareness and you may be frustrated at yourself for that reason. Or alternatively frustrated at the universe for feeling it's pushing you or not helping you. As always, you can rail against what is, or you can dig in and go with the flow. We remind you that you are never trapped. If you feel that way there is divinely guided awareness or action missing from your recipe. There is no secret ingredient to life so stop looking for one. When you do this, then you can actually start to entertain more joy in your life. When things are frustrating we highly recommend taking alone/quiet time as it's all too easy to lose your cool and overreact. Feelings of frustration make you a prickly pear. It's best to connect and contemplate as you move through the uncomfortable energy. We ask you not to doubt yourself. There has been a lot of this happening lately. You will have a clear awareness and then you will start to take action and then boom! You drop it like it's hot. This will only ensure more frustration and impatience as you then have to climb all the way back up the ladder of awareness. People laugh at dogs chasing their tails but the irony is humans do it all the time! (At this point the elementals ask me to pull a card from the oracle deck beside me and it is the 'trust' card.) Frustration stems from distrust. Impatience stems from distrust. If you believe and you know in truth you are safe, these feelings can easily evaporate for you. Ask for what you want. Commit to it without question. Then trust in the universe and its method and timing of delivery. Breathe and talk out loud to your guides. Release your fears, don't hold onto them. Move in the new direction you are drawn to. (I hear crickets.) If things are slow or quiet for awhile, can you not see that is a necessary part of the process? Spend some time in nature, in a sacred space where you can let go of the frustration that has you all coiled up and just honor your beautiful awareness. You are safe and provided for. Laugh at life, it helps. A lot.
