Watch out for animal guides this week as they will be helping you to focus on the present and handle what is immediately in front of you in a grounded, balanced way to avoid the often chaotic task of self-initiation. As we enter into Mercury retro midweek, we will already be feeling this energy on Monday. We are reminded of areas we have to heal and overcome and are working with the shadow this week plenty – but this doesn’t mean there is no time for fun – in fact, it is the exact opposite.
Our animal guides this week are poking a little fun at our journey and asking that we lighten up, detach from the drama and remember the magic within us. It can be so easy to feel sorry for ourselves as we move through our shadow, feeling like gawd there must be something wrong with me why haven’t I yet managed to achieve x,y,z or how have I not changed my habits or stopped this pattern, why can’t I just figure it out already??
This week brings opportunity to do exactly that – figure things out from a higher perspective but we must also be aware to bring that lesson down and integrate it into our daily lives through mindfulness and choosing thoughts and actions that empower us and are in alignment with who we are at a Soul level. This is easier to do than you may realize as we have a built-in navigation system. When we feel good (especially if it is accompanied with happy, expansive butterflies in the heart or belly) we are moving in the right direction – even if we are not yet sure where we are being led. Working with the pieces of the puzzle that we do have instead of lamenting over the ones we can’t see yet (there just under that pillow of doubt you’re sitting on) will empower us greatly to create transformation in our lives at a faster pace than we think is possible.
Keys to keep in mind this week:
- You are magical. Give yourself a little quiet time to tune in and ask what your magic feels like. Simply breathe and pay attention. Let the feeling of your inner magic light you up from within (you may be shocked at how bright it is, especially if you have been looking outside of yourself for the light.)
- Go with the flow this week. Tune into your inner child. Ask how she is calling for love? How does she need to be healed? What activities will bring her great joy? Even for the most grounded of goals, connecting with your inner child and allowing her healing and happiness will always turn the energy in your favor. If your grown-up mind tells you you don’t have time for that, tell her she just doesn’t understand yet and create the time and space to do it anyway. Play.
- Your intentions are coming closer and closer to fruition. Claim your power this week by feeling your inner connection to the Earth and all that is. Do not be afraid to look your pure potential in the eye and say I accept you. I am open to more of my Divine, heart-centered power now.
- Watch out for animals crossing your path, that you see mentioned repeatedly, that you notice pop into your head. They are carrying messages for where you are at on your specific path. Tune in and ask what their message is or Google the spiritual meaning of the animal and pay attention to what you feel most called to about the description for additional insight.
- Your love and light are expansive in their potential. Give it to yourself, play with it and use it to assist others.
