So, Mercury Retrograde is here again. Do you find yourself craving some “cave” time or quiet time?
I know my family is definitely seeking out hibernation.
(and we're already having tech issues.)
It’s funny how suddenly, everyone talks about things like Retrogrades and cosmic events, isn’t it? I know that 10 years ago or so, no one really thought about Mercury or other planets in the everyday. Ok, maybe some people did, but I know I didn’t.
And yet, here it is, that time again. Mercury is in retrograde and everyone is talking about wanting to freeze in one spot until it is over.
If you find that life is frantic and you simply want to hide, there’s a chance that Mercury, with its power, is simply calling you to take some time for going within, to breathe deep and realign, rather than just unleashing ultimate chaos on your life.
Here’s what I mean;
I like to see cosmic events, (mercury retrogrades, full moons, eclipses) like the weather.
It’s all about adapting.
Everyone I talk to lately is asking me about this huge energy shift that seems to be swirling around the last week or so.
From sleeping issues, to deep dreams, a feeling of restlessness in their bodies or minds, a scrambled sense of focus, or a quicker sense of irritation are some of the reactions to it.
At the same time, there's also a sense of a divine purpose, a calling to something that can't be described, a quest to dive deeper within.
And kids are feeling it too.
I've been asked about sleep issues and listening troubles. Children are feeling the restlessness in the air, like an energy overload.
My own family have been reacting to it, with disturbed sleeps and a feeling of energy tension from the chest up.
So, how is it flowing for you?
The advice I'm offering most of my clients these days is to focus on grounding.
Focus on your feet, walk barefoot or in socks, imagine light traveling down your back, imagine you are a tree with deep roots going into the ground. Focus on your fingers, on your 5 senses, be in your body.
Create. Dance. Jump up and down.
This will then allow you to be a conduit of the energy that is flowing. It can flow through you, rather than being bottle-necked and built up.
Does that make sense?
Where attention goes energy flows. And when we hear about powerful energy or mercury retrogrades or cosmic shifts our attention goes upwards. With almost a defense in place we brace ourselves...
"Ok. here we go. I'm ready."
When really, if you allow that energy to empower, fuel and at the same time flow through you, releasing things that are getting in your way.
At the same time it will simply give you what you need and release the rest.
You can help your children by simply focusing on their feet, getting them exercising, running and dancing, and then foot rubs or just holding their feet at night, so their attention allows flow.
A great way to tune in to see how energy is affecting you is to look at literally how you are feeling.
Over in the Facebook Group, I recently posted a poll to see how members feel on bad days.
I know, I don't usually focus on the negative, but acknowledging and knowing how triggers pop up for you is really powerful, as with that awareness you can put tools in place.
Emotions are your spirit's way of telling you how connected you are at any moment, like a heart centred language. By observing how you feel, you tune into this inner guidance system.
The top responses were;
and with negative head chatter.
These are powerful energetic states, which, once you know their messages, you can shift your attention and use them as guidance.
I'm going to be exploring this through a few avenues over the next couple of months. I'm planning a free class, as well as some elements for the Breathing Space Membership. (Sign up for the newsletter to keep in the loop.)
However, I want to encourage you to consider something, that dives in deep right away.
I have space for a couple of new clients, starting in the next couple of weeks, for my initial 6 week package. (As well as a January Special offer)
Over our time together, I will help you:
Because, when you are aware of your truest self and the energy that is there to support you, refuel you and rejuvenate you, you will feel more present and empowered as yourself and as a parent.
You will also have a deeper insight to your children; to whom they really are and why they are acting or feeling the way they are.
Everything shifts, empowered by the universe having your back.
The universe's energy is always flowing for you. It's just sometimes, everyone forgets to plug in and allow it to fuel you!
I highly encourage you to "apply" for this 1;1 time with me.
Sending you deep love. - Christina
