With the high energies from this last week, like many other sensitives out there, I just couldn’t seem to get a grip on myself. Old issues, judgments against me, judgments against myself swirled through my head day and night. And for no particular cause and effect reason. And I was utterly exhausted from the tumultuous night time forays into my past. I was sorely tempted to be more than a little grumpy.
I will say this upfront I don’t believe the Universe ever inflicts on us things to make us suffer. And I will also say that each of these periods of time have different effects, so here’s we’re just going to talk about how to treat this topic like any other with external influence that might catch us off guard. Listening to resources like Elizabeth Peru or Mystic Mama can give you an idea of the types of themes that might get visited during each of these high energy periods. And even if you’re feeling down, frazzled, or a little flu-ish at these times, it’s not because the energy is low. It’s because the energy is high and we aren’t resonating well or high enough to flow well the energy around us.
Let’s take a quick example here, Mercury appears to go retrograde every couple months, so we have retrograde energy a few times a year. It varies in length, but because it’s Mercury, it means there will be less than direct energy in the realms of communication and travel. Does it mean awful things will happen to you? No more than any other time. Does it mean you will get into a fight or miss your flight, maybe. But those could happen at any other point in time as well. It does mean that if you have issues in some kind of communication, maybe in acknowledging your feelings, maybe in standing up for yourself, maybe in getting your point across, you will have a chance to examine this issue and try to clear it up for ourselves, to recognize that we are capable of being more than any one situation circumstance.We are being called to act from our deepest selves, vulnerable, and in-choice about our decisions.

I know there is the temptation to starting acting on how you are feeling. This can happen during any high stress time or anytime we simply aren’t feeling well. But I want you to realize something right now.That tired grumpy person, you may feel you are, should not be making any judgments or big decisions… Click To Tweet
Just recognizing this state of off-ness is the point where you should be thinking about going to take a bubble bath and grab a novel, rather than pushing forward with anything serious.
It’s during times that may seem more chaotic than usual we go back to a bad habit that we all seem to have in common. We all think that we have done something wrong, it must be us. We want to react badly because we don’t actually believe we are enough to come through this period of time well. But isn’t it funny how the printer always seems to break when we are rushing to get something done or during a retrograde? Or is that we are already operating under duress and aren’t able to get into a flow state that would help us circumvent small problems? It’s the thinking, the fear, that is driving this, not the idea that planetary bodies can break printers.From a higher perspective, the soul perspective, the realm of energy, the first step to healing is… Click To Tweet
What I usually find when shifting back to this a Soul-centered state is how hard I’ve been pushing my agenda on the Universe. I wasn’t in flow, like I thought I was. I was operating under the assumption that just because I can squeeze something in, it was supposed to happen, and therefore I have the right to make it happen. That pushing or controlling of our flow state actually begins to impair our ability to flow rather quickly. And when we get even more off, we start the cyclical thinking that something is “WRONG”, probably us. The more off we get and into fear or insecurity, the further from Soul and center and the pattern spirals downward. But that’s all simply thought and conjecture. Our wounded inner child having a fit because it’s afraid of feeling hurt. The truth, however, lies in Soul.
And that is the gift of these high energy periods we have through out the year. Our Soul-self is being strengthened, so we can more easily see how we’ve allowed our wounded inner children to run our lives. In the daily grind of things, our connection with Soul can get muddled. During the high energy periods, Soul is being called out. It feels chaotic to us because our inner children don’t understand why we can’t give them the reigns again, at least at first. The tantrum our inner children might throw may seem more exaggerated because Soul is trying to put things back into perspective. In this gift, we are also given the opportunity to love into that fear and inner wounded child. On the surface this may sound just another call for more self TLC, but this goes deeper.
We have spent many years in self-abusive judgment patterns, layers upon layers of shame and guilt. The high energies times are working to strip away these layers. It might seem uncomfortable, we may get triggered. But once we understand what’s being worked on and challenged, the process becomes more natural. When we are able to love our fears for what they are, simple messages about where we need more love in our lives, then there is no struggle or resistance to these high energy times and they become miraculous and healing.
Until next week, Be in-Love, dearest Soul!!!
