As we experience this Dark Moon & the timely eclipse, we approach an opportunity for interior exploration and self work that's largely unparalleled. This is occurring just as some kingdoms are being unmade and others are just taking their final shape, and so it is a time of great change and greater upheaval. A time where a clear mind and resolute steadfastness matters a great deal. Where growth becomes a means of staying ahead and maintaining relevance in a chaotic world.
It's a unique experience, just as this year has been, and so I am here to offer a bit of advice to those who would choose to be magically opportunistic. ;)
During your free moments this week, contemplate your existence and how you relate to you. Contemplate how you imprison and free yourself with your actions, and consider how free you really feel. Dig deep and get a proper feel for what is and isn't you. You're meant to recognize and honor the quintessence of Self, as that awareness is what makes it possible for one to strive towards a meaningful path & related fulfillment.
As you consider this, take note and begin to compare your current state of being to that ideal you hold inside. Take stock what you are currently lacking in that pursuit, and make an agreement with yourself to honor all that is you.
Note carefully each of these observations, and following your meditations, use your newfound awareness to figure out how to support your own goals. Determine how to do this through ritual, through mundane actions, and through genuinely supporting and caring for yourself.
This WILL be hard, especially if you're at all distant from who you really want to be. The further the divide, the more this will hurt. The greater the distance, the more imperative the journey, as this discomfort you hold deep within is a reflection of that inauthenticity, be it placed upon you by others or by yourself.
For me, a great part of that journey involves facing and appreciating my own inner Female Divinity. I was born different, and so I can't fit into the mold of another. I can only be true to myself and live my life, and the same is true of you. You don't have to be me or be like me to be important, and I don't need to reflect you to stand on my own two feet either.
That's the point. Be true to you and don't let others keep your cordoned off in a box that doesn't really serve you. You don't need to vocalize any of this or explain to others how or why you're different - just be different and be yourself. That's a beautiful thing, and its important to each of us.
Without actualizing the Self, its difficult to derive meaning from life and be properly happy.
Just my two cents. I hope it helps you today & as the holidays approach. Blessings to you, and as always, thank you so much for your support. It means the world to me, and I care deeply for you guys and gals.
