A beautiful time to set intentions for the new season upon us, and specifically a time to clarify what your heart longs for. For some of us the next coming months will feel still a bit more internal, and we are asked to truly SEE THE VALUE of STILLNESS.
One of The Priestess Code Principles is “Deconstruct & Construct; it is your nature”. Most of us have not been taught or been wired to see how this Code can feed success and progress. Most of us have been conditioned to be a peg on the upward motion of success, and yet I know this Principle has value. Let me share…
We can all agree that challenges bring us great gifts, but we only see that after it has fully passed. In the middle of the storm, all we want to do is get out as quickly as possible. I get it. None of us love to be in the thick of things, yet beautiful blessings come from it, as much as we do not love to admit this!
I am not suggesting that we only grow when in challenges, I think we can be prompted to evolve and expand from joy, but some of us have moments of being a wee bit stubborn, and Spirit (God/ Universe/ Insert your flavor) sometimes has to order up a storm for our beautiful serving.
The Stillness. She brings peace if we allow her. She brings eventual clarity. She allows us to embrace the quiet within. She allows the ground of our garden to thaw, so that we can begin planting, watering, and nurturing our dreams in Divine Timing.Some of us need to activate the Spiritual Warrior within. We need to know that we are powerful beyond life circumstances.
This past weekend I spoke at the W.E.L.L. Boston Conference and taught the participants how to know their unique season. When you know what season you are in (whether more yin & quiet OR more yang & active), you are able to prepare. But sometimes, you don’t have this information(don’t worry, I share this tool in my upcoming book! so YOU WILL HAVE IT! ) and so you have to improvise…
Sometimes crappy things and people show up, so what to do?
1. Don’t feed the inner or outer demons. The brighter you shine, the more good that comes your way, but also the more shadowy things and people challenge you. Acknowledge what they bring. Have compassion and love, but do not be a doormat. Stop talking about it and definitely stop obsessing. I know it is tempting, but the more we feed the story, the bigger the story becomes.
2. What message are you receiving? The challenge brings a message for you. You are not a victim, you are victorious, and as a Victorious Priestess (or Monk), a message lays before you. What inside of you opened the door for this challenge. What within you is wanting to be released or aligned? Name it. Be kind to yourself.
3. Follow the signs. Acknowledging the message means you are ready to adult! 😉 Meaning you are now ready and wise enough to deal with whatever is causing you pain. Intend to find resources, ask the Universe to show you. And notice what shows up. Buy the book, take the class, get the massage, cut your hair…. it does not have to be logical. Most importantly, TRUST. I promise the Universe is not stingy. It wants to support you.
