As always, I hope this letter finds you happy, healthy, ...and feeling connected :)
So, I don't know about you guys but lately I've been feeling like I'm riding on some sort of crazy energetic roller coaster! White knuckles and all, I'm trying to hold on tight and keep as calm, cool, and collected as possible to get through the dips and twirls and sharp twists and turns. To be honest, I hate roller coasters and I'm sort of ready to switch over to the lazy river ride if you know what I mean. You feel me?
You may or may not be experiencing some of these weird energy shifts. I've had several conversations with others who are going through something similar, if not exactly the same. However, if you're reading this and thinking....."What's she babbling on about? Everything is pretty chill in my life right now.", that just means that you're in a good space right now. You're riding the lazy river ride and that's pretty awesome. And I can't wait to join you!
But at this juncture, I am finding that almost every day is either really high or really low. Or some insane combination of both. For instance, one day I'll be working - delivering messages all day and feeling super connected and my energy is super amped - and the next day all I want to do is sleep and hibernate. I don't feel depressed or down in any way. I can't even say that I feel irritable. I simply have no energy. One day I'll spend an hour walking my dog through the woods and the next day I can barely find the energy to open the back door to let him out. One day I am drawn to foods that nourish my body and my soul ...and the next day I want to eat nothing but cinnamon rolls and Nutella. Last night I pulled a muscle in my back and then pulled another in my shoulder/arm. I could barely stand or lift the crock pot lid. What the heck?? Thankfully, today both are feeling much better. So weird. As you can see, it's not anything major....I just feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone lately. These fluctuations are just super inconsistent... and I've got things to do! <sigh> And yet...
I'm sure there is a logical or spiritual (or both) explanation for what's going on right now. Maybe the moons and the stars and the mercuries and the retrogrades are acting up. Or perhaps right now I'm just extra sensitive to the emotions of those I'm working with. Who knows. But the good news is that I don't believe it's permanent. I trust that everything will level out soon enough. I've been through worse, that's for sure. And even the hard days really aren't all that bad. So what's wrong with a nap day? Sometimes maybe that's exactly what my body, my mind, and my Soul really needs. I trust that Spirit is giving me signals to slow down when I need to and the energy that I need when it's time to go work. Even on the wonky days, I simply ask Spirit to give me what I need to be of service. And they haven't failed me yet.
It's times like these that remind me, once again, that life is a series of highs and lows. We didn't come here to experience heaven on earth 100% of the time. We're here to face challenges, to learn, to overcome obstacles....as well as to bask in the sun, to celebrate, to party our faces off, to know love, and so on. So how do we get through the tough days? For me, it's a process of removing myself from the feelings to become an observer (like taking myself out of the movie and sitting in the audience for a minute). So, first I honor what I am feeling (tired, cravings, irritable, whatever). Then I ask myself how much attention it needs (am I supposed to take action? am I simply supposed to rest? do I need to make a change?). Feel like a good cry...then cry! Need to get some rest? Grab a nap! Feeling stuck? Move! You get the idea. Depending on what's going on, you might need to give a lot of attention to how you are feeling...or to what is upsetting your apple cart. Or maybe you just need to stop and take a breath. I find that it also helps to look on the bright side.
And yes, there's always a bright side.
It might take me a minute (or days) to find it, but I know that once I do find it....I almost instantly feel better. Gratitude prayers help a lot. Humor helps a lot. Faith helps a lot. Getting outside helps, too. And MUSIC. Uplifting music will take me straight to church...it raises my vibration, encourages movement, and helps me to put everything into perspective. These are all ways we can tune in to the positive energies of the Universe and rediscover our light...even on the crappiest of days. Positivity is a choice and it's a choice that helps to get us back on track when we're struggling. To be clear, positivity doesn't prevent or eliminate our challenging times (and the tough emotions that come along with them). Nor is it a good idea to use positivity, or spirituality, to avoid necessary healing. Suppressing emotions just leads to a long list of physical and psychological discomfort. So I'm not talking about escapism. But having a positive outlook sure does help the hard times pass a little easier. Sort of like olive oil to kidney stones.
I decided to pull a card today for us and this is the card we got...
And yes, it was upside down (which changes the message a little bit). Here's what the card says:
"Perhaps you felt almost certain that serendipitous events were meant to lead to something better. It was supposed to be the perfect business, or that person you gave your heart to was supposed to be ‘the one’ – yet it all fell apart! Consider this: Sometimes synchronicity and serendipity come together to lead you directly into difficulties in order to deliver an important lesson you need to learn before you hit the jackpot. Don’t get caught up in the drama of disappointment. There really is a silver lining in this cloud. Spirit always knows what you need and is guiding you to where you are meant to go. Pay attention to the signs presented to you.”
Some of you might be feeling disappointment about how things have played out in your lives. Or frustrated that something isn't quite working out like you had hoped. If so, I know how lousy that can feel (been there, done that...bought the t-shirt). My heart goes to you and I hope you are soon able to find peace with whatever flip flopped. Trust that you're in good hands with your Spirit team of guides/angels, that this is all part of your Soul's plan, and everything does have a funny way of eventually working out. Hopefully you're able to see an opportunity for your own growth and learning in the process. Although I'm not personally feeling as if anything has fallen apart, I can certainly relate to feeling jacked up in the energy department...and that is frustrating. So for now I will simply acknowledge that things are shifting. I'm shifting. And I will continue to have faith that everything will work itself out and I will find myself floating down the lazy river again soon. In the meantime, if you see me looking like this....
....know that I'm just having a moment. Wave and smile, if you feel like it. This, too, shall pass and I'll be okay. And life is STILL good. :)
Sending love out to all those who need/want it and prayers to those who may be hurting today. May you find peace in your heart and a smile on your face no matter what is happening in your world And if you need a place to go to lift your spirits, I hope you'll stop by sometime :)
Here's what's happening at Light Works this month...
This Sunday, March 3rd, I'll be delivering messages with Dino Calabrese @ "Voices of Spirit" Mediumship Demonstration with Juli & Dino!. Come out and witness the amazing connections and loving messages from loved ones on the other side! Those in the Spirit world are always around and want to help us to heal, to feel loved & supported as we navigate our way through life in the physical world. A mediumship gallery is a wonderful way to experience this beautiful connection...hope you'll join us!
Join us on the 9th for a Sound Bath Meditation with Biansa! Allow Ansa to guide you through a world of sound vibration for a deep cellular experience of alignment that will leave you feeling rested and connected! Enjoy the sounds of singing bowls, chimes, gongs, and much more. A Sound Bath can be an unforgettable sound experience for those who seek deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and an acceleration of their inward journey.
Next, I'll be teaching Meditation with Intention...to Connect with Spirit! on March 24th. Want to learn how to connect with Spirit? In this class, you'll learn my method of connecting with the angels, spirit guides, and loved ones...and, yes, anyone can do it :)
On March 27th, we'll be getting together for "Let's Play" - Animal Communication! Have you ever wondered what it would be like to talk to animals? Well, here's your chance to learn how.
