Last week’s energy of Mercury turning retrograde combined with the solar eclipse and new moon really did a number on me. I am only now beginning to emerge from the depths of the energetic sludge. But the good news is, I’m clearer and more focused then ever.
The energy of last week’s celestial events asked us and in some cases (ahem me-waving hand) forced us to slow down, reassess and ask ourselves, “What do I really want? Am I on track? Is there a better way to accomplish my goals? Can I be doing something differently? What am I doing because I feel I have to and not because I want to?”
When Mercury turns retrograde it wrecks havoc on technology, communications of all kinds, plans, schedules and contracts. My computer went bust. My DVD player broke down. My blender began to sputter and smoke. The transfer of my websites from one hosting site to another while completed without error took more time then necessary. More importantly then all of the above, verbal communication with an important person in my life shutdown.
Knowing what I know, that this is all for my highest and best good, I took pause and began to reassess. Even though I wanted to ignore the energies of last week the Universe would have none of it. It demanded respect from me and it got it.
Over the weekend and into the early part of this week I took a good long look at many areas of my life to see what needed tweaking, major change, letting go or emergence.
I listened to my inner guidance and the key words which kept coming forth were “Course Correction.” Not a major course correction but a course correction it was. I knew fighting the correction was useless so instead I went with the flow. I threw my hands in the air and shouted, “God show me exactly what needs correcting and then give me the guidance and ability to do it.”
The wisdom and guidance began to flow into my life immediately. It came in many different ways: via the web, tweets, facebook posts, chats with friends and a casual remark made by a 10 year old.
I took action on everything which felt right and last night conducted a mini Core Belief Engineering process on myself to ensure that my mindset and beliefs were in alignment with my course correction.
After a delicious sleep full of processing and interesting dreams, I woke up feeling refreshed and no longer encumbered by the sludge of last weeks energies.
When all hell breaks loose in your life you have two choices, battle against it and create a tug and war or allow it to teach you and mould you, course correct you so to speak into who you are destined to be.
