Feminine energies predominate. Be open and receptive. But remember to take time for yourself. This is the energy of the week, and how to embrace and make the most of it.
We are reminded to stay interested and open-minded, responsive and welcoming, as the energy shifts and flows. Generally speaking, a week of lighter energies than we’ve had recently. So, my Dear, take a break from the turmoil. Go within…
And then there was light. We start the week with an open heart and a sense of allowing ourselves to heal. Looking back, we remember the good times and feel our hearts expand with love and joy.
Nine of Water. Look up to the heavens. We get to choose to live in love and light.
Focus on what feels good, and place your mind there. We can’t choose what we remember, but we can choose which memories to focus upon. Remember the love.
So, take some time to honor your past, good and bad. Say goodbye to the past hurts and place your attention on what feels uplifting. Light a candle and say a prayer of gratitude. Use gentle loving affirmations daily to stay in the light. Surround yourself with people and things that make you feel good, because you deserve it.
Moving on to the middle of the week, Wednesday and Thursday brings Five of Air. And our way becomes a bit more muddy. The confidence of open-heartedness can easily give way to doubts and fear.
It can become easy to allow ourselves to justify procrastination. (Naughty inner voice can be misleading.)
A time to turn inwards, so that we can clearly and openly see where we are holding ourselves back. We’ve taken off our mask so the world can see us. Now we have to take off the blindfold, so that we can see the world.
Instead of embracing fears and self-doubt, honor the feelings. Have a good cry if you need to. Allow the doubts to wash over you, and use the power of your mind to imagine them being washed away by a shower of light. Breathe.
Allow others to help you. Reach out, be vulnerable and ask for help. You are not alone, and you are loved.
Moving into the end of the week, the energy shifts again. Seven of Fire brings her magical touch. We are invited to listen to the whispers of our intuition. Our inner voice become clear. Harmony influences us from Friday through the weekend.
We needed to reach out to others earlier in the week, now we need to heed our own inner voice.
Honor the truths revealed by your own inner voice. A good time to look below the surface of life. Take some time out in nature, if you can. Walk in the woods, or in the park. Spring life is blossoming here in the Pacific Northwest and a green, healing energy emanates from the trees and plants. Breathe it in!
Our tea to sip to embrace the flowing energy this week is a perfect match. Green tea. Healing, nurturing, and slightly bitter. Reflecting the energy of new growth and heart healing.
I like to take mine with a little slice of lemon, to cut any bitter after taste. Known for heart health and full of anti-oxidants. Remember to let the water come off the boil before adding to your tea. That way the flavor is released without any harsh notes. A gentle and feminine tea. (Link to purchase below.)
Whether we show up as male or female this life time, know that we all have male and female attributes. This week we need to soften ourselves to the divine feminine and listen to our inner voice.
