When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge
to test our courage and willingness to change;
at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready.
The challenge will not wait.
Life does not look back.
A week is more than enough time for us to decide
whether or not to accept our destiny.
Paulo Coelho, ‘The Devil and Miss Prym’
Winter is an etching, spring a water color,
summer an oil painting
and autumn a mosaic of them all.
Soft rain continues to fall here…I have lost count of the days. Winter has truly arrived, bringing forth crisp icy mornings…
IN ONE WORD: Allowing
COLOUR OF THE DAY: Golden hues…
HOW I FEEL: We are in a time when so much is happening so fast, life is speeding by us and we are becoming so desensitized that we don’t know how we feel. Dr. Meg
I am constantly surprised, even astounded, often amused, or puzzled by life’s process…Yet, I accept my life, my journey and know that all will be well, as more of what is coming unfolds before me and in me…
Its ok, its actually as perfect as it can be. Not always easy, not always kind, but there is an understanding within me now, and I know that this journey of awakening is meant to take me somewhere that I have never been, yet long to go…be it today, tomorrow…who knows…perhaps for as long as I AM here. And as of today, I fully honour the sacredness of this process. I AM blessed.
PHYSICALLY: Settling, needing more time for hibernation…stronger.
“We sense that ‘normal’ isn’t coming back,
that we are being born into a new normal:
a new kind of society, a new relationship to the earth,
a new experience of being human.”
And another constant is rain…as if The Great Mother is clearing and cleansing, weeping and weeping…as the Great Heart opens wider. Growing and awakening over and over like the tides…As so many of us accept letting go – allowing this process with understanding. Then just ‘being’ with a new knowing….
THE COLLECTIVE: We all carry a hefty load of baggage, many of us CHOOSE to endure the suffering caused by these ancient wounds. We need to heal these wounds in order to function in a world of wellness, to be able to hear our heart song and dance as a free spirit without the limitations we place on ourselves. Chiron in retrograde as painful and irritating as it may be, serves us well if we stop blaming others and look deep inside ourselves.
AFFIRMATION: “I AM divinely guided, protected and loved, always…”
