I'm grateful for Jessica Freites, an old friend of mine, also an amazing Artist, Astrologer and Sound Healer, who declared the recent New Moon in Aries a time to "clear, cleanse, ground, manifest, and repeat!"
This succinctly describes the pattern I've been consciously repeating for the past two years: from sister circles to sound baths, meditations and reiki sessions. I found myself in the middle of clearing and cleansing again as new insight was being revealed to me regarding cycles I needed to observe for the purpose of letting go and reaffirming new beliefs. During this time a number of themes resurfaced to be examined including childhood memories, power struggles, setting boundaries, understanding my role in exchanges with others, self-confidence, etc. I even tried a new animal deck and pulled the armadillo - a reminder to honor my armor of protection. Journaling and communicating with friends & family have also been vital for receiving clarity
and moving forward in wisdom.
We are often no match for the emotional waves that carry us, stopping us in our tracks, interrupting our plans, commanding our attention so we may capture the lessons intended for us in the moment. Last Saturday afternoon, my partner and I were energetically drawn to the beach where we released and bathed our spirits in the embrace of water and sun.
As we watched the sunset, we meditated and expressed deep gratitude.
There is no apparent guidance or supervision when experiencing spiritual growth unless deliberately sought after by reliable, trusted sources. Even then, you literally and symbolically start over, meaning you learn a new language, behaviors, patterns and beliefs to navigate the new space or level of being you now inhabit. It's up to you to collect your tools and play.
The best thing you can do is be open, be patient and have ample grace for yourself as the journey will not be linear nor "perfect."
A simple, yet effective mantra my friend has been using comes to mind here -
"It's okay to make mistakes while learning." A lot of us can really use that permission slip and cut ourselves some slack. It's better to affirm your process, no matter the pace, than to chastise it. Realize that you are right where you're meant to be for your evolution.
We are always manifesting something into our reality, but most of us are unaware of it.
We assume we have nothing to do with it, and so that creates a sense of detachment and feeling of powerlessness which translates into helplessness...You know the story. How can we fix what we cannot help, right? But once we shift this perspective, we realize the true value in managing our daily thoughts, emotions and actions to create the manifested realities we desire, rather than the ones we don't yet constantly encounter.
*Drink more water while you're at it.
Whatever your practice entails, the key is to make sure it resonates with you and is unique to your spiritual language. Trust your intuition to guide you.
Clear - The restart button. Processing. Letting go.
Cleanse - Purify. Make way for the new. Could be an herbal bath, candles.
Ground - Focus. Dance. Breathe. Explore. Connect to the earth.
Manifest - Clear Intentions. Take Inspired Action. Receive.
