The energy over the last few weeks has been a little challenging for many. We’ve been in this midst of a Mercury retrograde that took us deep within. Its theme was self-esteem and risking the self; letting go and showing up.
In my mind, learning how to “risk the self” is exactly what we are up to as we work with the energies creating change in and around us these days…that spiritual evolution we are under-going.
We are learning to let go and connect; which of course means we must re-assess our inner identities and find our footing to stand firmly in who we are and be seen as we show up in the world.
So, it’s not surprising that this Mercury retrograde did a number on a lot of people…taking us deeper into the process to heal.
And over the past week or so, as we geared up to transition out of Mercury’s retrograde movement, we had a wave of energy come in that upgraded our energy in a way that I haven’t felt in a long time.
This cosmic energetic “re-org” created some energy symptoms that indicate to me that a clearing of energy at deep unconscious levels was in play. This is good news. Yet, this kind of energy shift can often throw our physical bodies off while we catch up to the energy.
If you missed the news, Mercury did go direct Aug. 8 — hip hip hooray — and things are settling down with this latest wave of energy. But the question is…where does that leave each of us?
Well, it leaves us in process. It leaves us thinking about how we have been changing. It leaves us re-establishing a felt-sense of our new selves as we let go, and experiencing what we are creating within, which is more “stripped down” and “streamlined” for deeper connection.
For me personally, I am feeling an almost molecular shift around parts of my own identity dropping away.
I’m craving more connection — conscious connection. What that means to me is connecting to people in ways that honor who we are in the moment, and letting my facade drop away.
This is scary stuff. It’s revealing. My own sense of control is lost, and I need to find the deeper trust and acceptance of my Self as I am.
But as I do it, I find I move into the flow. I show up and then things show up for me!
When I’m in conscious connection with others, my walls drop away and everything within and around me expands.
The energy is indeed shifting.
We’ve just move through some powerful forces that ask us to pay attention. And even though the energy is moving forward again, it’s not time to just forgive and forget Mercury’s trials and message. It’s time to stay in our inner reflection and begin to experience ourselves in this new state.
Acknowledge those moments where you “risk” your Self; where you fling open the shutters of your Being and not only let the light in, but also stand at the window to be seen. And find the energy within you that continues to allow yourself to let go of what is no longer needed, as you reveal the beauty that lies within.
