Savoring Our Place
The Virgo full moon we just experienced allowed many of us the opportunity to clean house in one way or another. It asked us what we were ready to let go of in order to make space for lovely new things that are more in aligned with who we are now. We also saw some new things come into our lives, or true feelings finally coming to the surface.
Now we get to start this week feeling a little more balanced. A little more authentic. A little more on our path, closer to our dreams.
This Full Moon allowed me to close doors that needed closing and it was easier than I anticipated. So natural. So perfect. I am making space for my True Heart’s Desire. With this new space being created in my life, I am also tapping into my true feelings and desires. I remembered this weekend that sometimes my feelings can be buried so deep underneath what I think ‘should happen’, or ‘could happen’ or is the ‘only socially acceptable thing to happen’ thus ignoring what my heart and spirit want. I know I do this not only about love but also about my career, my lifestyle, just about everything in my life. What I realized is that though situations may not be the easiest and my decisions may not be something everyone agrees with, and though I do things in a very unique way and at a slower pace, my heart is finally speaking up and being heard. My spirit is allowing things to develop naturally and at a pace I can handle. I am truly not in any hurry to rush through this life right now. In fact, I would rather slow things down a bit and watch the Universe do its work.
I also realized this past weekend that the doors I decided to close needed to be closed that the decisions and the door closing happened with such ease. I had needed to take these actions for years but had been resisting. They were things I thought I wanted but really, they were preventing my energy from being clear and clean. Now I can approach the new opportunities in my life that are making my heart flutter with joy while I know that I am as fully present as I can be. I am doing all this work without demanding it from someone else. I am making these changes in a way that if the new situations are not meant to be, that’s ok. I will be ready for the situations that I am supposed to be in. This excites me. I feel this natural change and growth happening like the butterfly coming out of the cocoon. Let’s use this week to look at places where we are naturally changing and where we want to slow things down a bit to savor them. To sit in our joy, our laughter, our love of the moment.
Ritual for Savoring Our Place
Let’s take a few moments to think about the places in our life where we want time to slow down. Let’s take some time to make a cup of coffee, or tea, or even a glass of wine and just sit with our journal to savor the moment. Let’s write down the places where you can see new change starting to happen. Maybe it’s so new that it’s just manifesting as new thoughts or the realization the person you used to love is slowly leaving your mind and you are starting to open up to new people. Maybe it’s the realization that you are ready to slow down your need for a relationship and just savor the dating and getting to know someone part. Maybe it’s the subtle change where you start to read books about getting promoted with the realization that you are ready for change but not yet ready for it to happen. Maybe it’s the moment when you get to hold your new nephew at lunch and you realize how much love and excitement you have, looking forward to watching him grow up and develop into a man. We want to savor these moments as gifts and work with this energy this week. We want to slow things down for a bit, especially when speaking. The planet Mars will want us to speed up for the rest of the month but let’s not give into this Aries energy unless we know for sure it’s a good thing. Let’s slow down so we be thoughtful about our actions, our intentions.
After writing down everything you want or need to write down, light a candle and say thank you. Finish your drink and give thanks. Take a salt bath and just keep saying thank you. We want to be thankful for these changes. We really are being supported and guided by the Universe to living our dreams.
