Life is all about choice--the choices we make in any given moment effect what
ensues and what our next choices might be. The energy of sudden and
unpredictable shift and change have become the norm over the past year or so creating a sense of chaos in our world. Although this can be unsettling, it also generates more opportunities and possibilities for us to choose from. The
overall energies of the stars, planets and cosmos are supporting us to make
radical change--supporting us to "go where no man has gone before" to "leap into the void" to "take the road less travelled."
Take a good look at your life--the choices you have been making and are poised to make. Take a look at the opportunities being set before you...Where can you perhaps take a leap of faith and initiate a new beginning for yourself? A new beginning that may take you to a place that your logical mind is resisting, but your heart says go!
A few years ago, after working as a teacher for many years, there was a radical change in our position creating a very stressful environment. After much prayer and contemplation we made the difficult decision to leave this job that we truly loved. Many people thought we were crazy not to just "hang in there" for a few more years. But we took the risk and left! We spent a few years with challenges, but also with awesome opportunities for growth and adventure. Jumping into the void has its uncertainties and anxieties but there is so much more out there than we can ever comprehend or imagine available to us. We will never experience it unless we listen to our heart and make the choice to leap into the unknown taking that road that few others would choose.
Utilize the moon cycle to help guide you on your ever-changing journey. Notice what surfaces around the end of the moon cycle (July 1-7) and (July 31-Aug.5). Do some cleaning out and letting go of fears, worries, old beliefs and "should dos" as you prepare for a new cycle with the New Moons on July 8 and August 6. See what develops during that first week of the cycle and how it plays out during the Full Moons of July 22 and August 20. The Full Moon will bring insight, but also agitation, anxiety and impulsive action. The key is to breathe...observe what is transpiring within and around you and be patient. Allow the insights gained during this time to fully register within your consciousness so that you can make the best choices guided by your inner knowingness as opposed to by your reactive self. Within about 3 days after a full moon clarity comes and we are able to make more informed, wiser choices. Mark your calendar, observe the flow of your emotions and thoughts over the course of the cycle and utilize the energies offered to us to empower your choices and your life.
