“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” — Dr. Wayne Dyer
Does anyone else feel like their life is on hold right now? Like you’re being held captive in this state of limbo called COVID-19?
The pandemic is still going strong. In some states, they’re opening up before the curve ever flattened. In others, they’ve seen a resurge of cases after opening.
I’m on the fence about the whole thing. I’m cautious when I go out. I’m continually slathering on hand sanitizer. I don’t go to stores unless I have to. At the same time, though, a girl has got to get her hair done! I’m sure many of you can relate to this. And I’m thrilled that I could get it done. I even drastically changed the color. Because color is something that I CAN control. It’s fun to do too. 😊
You want to get out and do things. You want to get on with your life. It’s Summer. But, we’re not sure if NOW is the right time. Some news reports tell us to fear for our lives. Others claim there’s nothing to worry about. Friends and neighbors are arguing about masks. The grocery stores still aren’t 100% stocked on all the things we’d generally take for granted. There are new procedures for lining up and distancing everywhere.
All the uncertainty really knocked the wind out of everyone’s sails. Including mine. I sleep tons. How about you?
I’ve heard from one person that planned on retiring this year. With all the threats of a recession, he’s not sure anymore and feels lucky to have a job. This is sad to me. He’s earned his right to follow his dream. And get on with the next chapter of life.
Another friend of mine planned on moving across the country. That was postponed indefinitely. There’s enough uncertainty at home, let alone a whole new state. This too is a downer. Moving is good for people. Each time you move to a new home it raises your vibration. And opens doors to a new adventure. And a new you!
What changes have you been considering that you’ve either postponed or canceled completely? You’re not alone. We are all in this together.
Here’s the thing, though. This COVID pandemic is new to all of us. It’s an unparalleled situation. I’m not going to minimize the toll it is taking on everyone’s physical and mental health. Even if you don’t come down with the actual virus, the anxiety and depression alone can be debilitating and exhausting, to say the least.
That said, you can’t sit in a holding pattern forever. You want to focus on what YOU need to thrive. Experience has taught me that depression is not the enemy. Depression and anxiety are your soul talking to you. Make sure you listen. What is your soul telling you right now? Are you on the right path? When you feel a sense of RELIEF, that’s when you know you’re on the right path. And when do what is right for you, it brings release. Because you’re living from your center. Your core. Your authentic self.
If your job is sucking the life out of you every day, maybe you DO need to retire. Maybe that move IS what you need. Maybe a side-hustle will help you channel your anxious energy into something positive.
Take all those anxieties and give yourself a few days of serious thought. What can YOU do that would make YOU feel better? You can’t change the pandemic. And there are plenty of other things you can’t change too. But there are plenty of things that you CAN change. When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
There is good news. Venus has gone direct. YAY! Mercury the messenger will move direct on July 12. This will help clear your head and allow you to focus on what truly is going to INSPIRE you now.
If you need a jumpstart, look at your own astrology for guidance. I often refer to my Modern Natal Birth Report when I’m feeling a bit anxious. What is innate in my stars? Did I fall out of alignment somewhere? I like to check in once in a while and see where I can fine-tune my goals and even my expectations.
Once you find a way to channel your energies into the positive. I guarantee you will no longer feel “stuck.” And you’ll begin to feel re-energized again. And no matter what’s going on in the world, you are FREE to follow your passion and dreams. We are all in this together. And together we are going we going to make this a better world. Because we may get knocked down. But we don’t stay down.
Tons of Love and Abundance,
