I read an article recently about the benefits of alone time. A scientific study found that our productivity, creativity, and even our happiness can increase with a little bit of alone time. Thanks to COVID, we should all be feeling like the Most Creative People that have ever walked the Earth! And I have an added isolation bonus because I live in the North East. Where we have been blessed with one snowstorm after another. Even Mr. Groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil gave us six more weeks of winter.
Seriously, though, the article focused on balance and making sure that in a sea of responsibilities that life has placed upon us. We take time for ourselves to rejuvenate. Taking five minutes to practice calm and breathe deeply can move the energy. It makes perfect sense. The world has gone a bit crazy lately. I’m not kidding when I say that I’ve spent more alone time this year than the past two decades combined.
I LOVE my space, but I want to go out and about. I want to see my friends and family. I want to be able to interact with people in a way that we no longer can. Instead of striking up random conversations with strangers, I run from them. That’s not normal for us humans. We are social creatures. We are hardwired to be together. Even introverts are telling me that they miss the social interaction. And I am a big hugger. I miss hugging people. I miss smiling and saying good morning. I am smiling but you can’t see it through the mask.
In the past, I would come home from a day of errands thoroughly frustrated. I’d have a laundry list of annoyances, the noisy kids at the restaurant. The guy at the gym blasting his music. The friend that showed up late, and on and on. Looking back, I realize that these sorts of moments had their magic to them. We’re all just humans trying our best to Survive and Thrive. People coming together, in whatever way, are not to be taken for granted.
I’ve also had time to reflect on my life in a way that I would never have otherwise. The fewer life distractions I had, the more I realized that I was ready for a change. But seldom do you go directly from one thing to another. There needs to be a pause in between. So that you can figure out what is next. The good news is this Spring holds an opening for all of us that I have not seen in years. Something BIG is about to happen. The planets will align in a harmonious way starting with Jupiter rising in the Spring Equinox chart. This is a promising omen for positive growth and expansion. And you want to be ready for the new people, situations, and fresh opportunities that could surge into your life. It’s going to be a game-changer.
And with Mercury retrograde until February 20, this is an opportunity to reflect on your life and what is next for you. So, I ask you…what have you learned about yourself through all of this? Have you spent more time alone than usual? How did it affect you? For me, it caused a HUGE transformation in my life and work. What about your transformation? And, if you could have your life exactly the way you want it, what would that look like for you? Are you ready to receive the Fresh Opportunities? Did you know that people are driven by two primal urges?
- The need to feel safe and secure.
- The need to feel in control.
In fact, we will forgo prosperity and better horizons just to maintain a feeling of control. And if you find yourself struggling with fear or worry. Know that it’s all part of the process of moving to the Next Level. Where does courage dwell in you? Pull that courage up. We want to replace fear and worry with FAITH. And taking the right action like learning new skills. In the Tarot, when you get the Death Card. The Universe is telling you that something must end so that something new can begin. This means we need to confront that part of our brain that wants to keep us safe at the expense of a Better Life. Which is living an extraordinary life. In the meanwhile, you can use this time to rejuvenate. So that you are ready to Launch Forward in the Spring. Because the BEST is yet to come.
