Oddly enough when I wrote last week’s forecast I wrote it for a 2 week period starting with the 11:11:11 gateway and ending with this Friday’s Full moon, so please review the Ascension Awareness forecast for the week of November 11th as well this week, because all of November carries with it this gateway energy.
Ok, so the big news is that Mercury is retrograde again. #1 calm down. #2 this is such good news. Fear surrounding mercury retrograde is an old story and a limiting program that, as we are stepping up into our power, purpose and potential we need to release in order to fully receive the benefits and gifts mercury brings.
Be sure you are operating in the present. This needs to be remembered during times of retrogrades and times of growth. Our actions and insights, our power come to us in the present moment. While many of us are taught that Mercury retrograde is about review this is only empowering when we are using what we learn in the present, re-writing our stories and embodying the lessons to propel ourselves forward.
In order to cut attachment, we often need to incorporate self-healing to allow the peace of the present moment to support and propel us into clarity and momentum. Forgiveness is a gift to offer both yourself and others at this time and many of us need to layer on forgiveness day after day until the full effect of release is achieved. The Hawaiian practice of Ho’oponopono is recommended this week. A simple repetition of “I’m sorry, please forgive me, I thank you, I love you” can help to ease you through the healing taking place within your energy system this week.
If you are feeling stuck this week then stay there a minute and stop struggling to get out. If you feel like you’re at a crossroads and can’t get traction that is the big nudge from the Universe to take full advantage of this Mercury retrograde season and reevaluate where you are and where you want to be. There is a great potential and purpose for you, but if we carry on at top speed we miss the hints. Slow it down and pay attention to the hints and your inner nudges. Don’t force things, let your alignment (how you feel) be the top priority.
All of this comes with a big silver lining. We are stretched to do this inner work and will continue to be stretched into the end of the year, but it can be a balanced experience and not one to be dreaded. For those of us who choose to do the work NOW in the present and not put it off, we will be aligning ourselves for the fruition, grounding and coming together of a new empowered story come January. This is energetic prep-work. The biggest struggles are behind you and this energetic review is your call to understand, embody and come to a state of allowing now and a practice of receiving now. Feeling it energetically before it comes to physical manifestation.
You may find it beneficial this week to stay mindful of how you communicate to yourself, what stories and self-talk is coming up for you? Is this the story you want to be repeating? Is this the way you want to talk to yourself? A review will bring to light where we are ready to embrace the transformation.
You will be expanded past your comfort zone throughout this Mercury retrograde so be aware this is happening for your greater potential and the greater good. It is for your benefit not to trap you in a struggle. Beliefs you have been ignoring or pushing down will come up. Again all for your benefit. Allowing yourself to see things from a higher, detached perspectives helps to keep your journey flowing and helps to keep you from getting sucked into the despair of whatever you are healing your way through.
KEYS TO KEEP IN MIND
Be present with yourself, with your inner dialogue and story. Pay attention to depression which comes from our attachment to the past, pay attention to anxiety which comes from our attachment to the future. As often as possible come to your center. Focus on the present moment and cut attachment to the past and future to empower yourself to create change in the present. Find the gratitude and joy each day and in the present moment to align yourself to what your Soul most desires.
You are experiencing transformation on a mindset and energetic level. This requires your attention on the present moment, to tune into how you are feeling and to make any adjustments that are not congruent with how you WANT to feel. This work will bring you miraculous outcomes if you continue to follow through.
Focus upon your strengths, on what you are grateful for, on what is going right. Allow your healing time. Allow your forgiveness time, but step back over to focus on what you do want to bring into your life without delay or hesitation.
