I’m sure I’m not the only one finding this year tough. And I’m not just talking about the amount of blood moons, retrogrades, etc. that’s been going on. I’m finding that for many of us our challenges are being thrown at us head on, one after the other and with very little to zero breathing space in between.
We all have our story, my year started with miscarriage in January ending my miracle pregnancy and that is a pretty big challenge to kick-start the year off with. There has been so many other challenges thrown my way leading to a massive amount of energy restructuring going on in my body at the moment and my inner child just not laying down and being unheard this year.
I’ve had harsh words with my Ancestors, cried and shouted, tried to hide from the emotions and gone for many healing sessions with amazing healers.
I feel this year, as hard as it’s been, is giving us the GIFT to really rise to our challenges, face them and ascend at a much faster rate. If we do the groundwork now, regardless of the pain it’s causing, we can take this opportunity to Rise Up and shift so much more than we have been able to in the past.
Every time I did Rise Up and this is why:
Because I remind myself I am human and that it is OK to feel the way I do, as long as I don’t make it my home. It’s OK to express my pain as long as I do the work to get through it.
Because I don’t want to keep re-living old hurt and habits anymore. I chose to not push it down now when it comes up. I chose to listen to it (however it comes up) and then use the tools to hand to shift through it OR if it’s too intense and really deep-seeded than I find the healer that I trust to work with me to get through it.
I take the opportunity to learn from every single lesson that I get through so I can keep growing and find new tools.
I’ve started allowing myself to be vulnerable and to ask for support if I need it. This was a very hard one for me as I’m used to soldiering like a martyr. I’ve had support from fellow healers, the GW (Gentle Warrior) Tribe, my partner (tribal husband), friends and family.
….. But of course I’ve also had support from my Ancestors and Guides and we so very often forget that we have support in other realms. I know I’ve had words with them this year, but I remind myself that they really do know the bigger picture and can see why I need to go through this now and where I’m shining even brighter in my future.
I’ve had to listen and rest. I used to think I could go 100 miles / per, but I’ve realised the energy it steals. The energy I need to get through these challenges.
Earth is the greatest school where we have choice – we can chose to stay in the pain or to find the tools (or use those we have) to Rise Up, learn and ascend.
