Stop, Revive, Thrive

It's been a challenging year and many of us feel our old roles are over but aren't yet clear on what new directions we want to head in. We know that we can no longer do anything that doesn't feel right and are feeling compelled to be true to what our heart and soul really yearns to do, say, create and express. 

Venus Retrograde has begun, and is an ideal time to stop, revive, reflect, and then thrive as you re-connect to what you truly value, and to what it is that truly fills you up and nourishes you. From this space we can then nourish others in a healthy way from our closest personal relationships to the relationships we have with those we don't know but have a connection to daily via our food, clothing, media etc. 

I'll be posting regularly on this theme throughout this 40 day period!

Venus Retrograde and Christmas

In the days leading up to Christmas this year, more of us are feeling over the pressure to go somewhere/buy something/be someone that we don't really feel like going to/buying/being. So there is this sense of 'something's got to give' between what you really want to do and what you feel you are supposed to do. 

Partly this is due to our overall awakening, as we feel more disconnected from external systems, structures, rules and value systems and yearn to connect more with whatever is truly important to us, including and especially our authentic nature. 

Added to this, our inner values system is being reviewed by Venus's '40 days and 40 nights' retrograde journey starting Dec 21/22. During this period more than usual, you will find yourself confronting the value you place on yourself. This might show up in bolts of clarity around why you act the way you do, or why you put up with certain behaviour.  Patterns you repeat that constantly undermine your worth – or the worth of others – will be highlighted. 

Relationships with others be they partners, friends, family, colleagues or clients will all be insightful teachers during this time. You may feel compelled to find a greater balance between what you feel you should/have/need to do, and strive to put more energy into what truly nurtures your body, mind, heart and soul.

What does your 'Shop' look like?

Here is a fun and powerful exercise you can do if you want to change what you attract in either the love or money area. Choose one area to focus on at a time. (You can do the exercise twice if you want to work on both). 

Next imagine that your love life or financial flow is represented by a shop. Close your eyes and ask to see that shop. What does it look like? What kind of message is it sending out to the world? What kind of energy is it attracting toward you? Are you happy or shocked by what you see? 

Is it time to say bye to that shop and open up another one that is a better match to the kind of message you want to be sending out? If so, create a new shop in your mind's eye. How is it decorated? What kind of energy does it attract? How do you feel in this new shop? 

If anyone is brave enough to share their old shop/new shop visions please do!

Our New Play-Doh Reality

Our old density experience was much like a ball of play-doh that has been out of its tub for a while. It is hard, almost impossible to work with, and can stay stuck in the same form for ages unless you pour a good dose of water onto it. Our new higher experience is like fresh play-doh. It is flexible, easily transformed. It can be one thing one minute, and something totally different the next.  

In this reality your eyes can decide what something really is or isn’t, depending on how you choose to look at things – and then that thing can change right before your eyes. Of course this was true in our old reality, but it is easier now to do it. How many of you have had a circumstance or situation shift in literally minutes the second you changed your thoughts or perspective around it? Yet this same shift may have taken months or years once upon a time. 

As we move into 2014 we are going to more and more see just as how much we are the play-doh alchemists of our reality – not in a philosophical sense but in very real, tangible, immediate ways. You will continue to gain clear, sudden insights allowing you to realise which aspect/belief/emotion/thought/soul intention in you is being projected onto the screen in front of you that is then manifesting as certain patterns and experiences. You will start to feel gratitude for more of your experiences, and feel more ready and able to change those that have outlived their purpose.
