Shine Bright

I honestly worried aplenty yesterday about Uranus stationing direct and applying to a square with Mercury Jupiter and Saturn. I stayed inside and laid lower than usual. Especially with Pluto conjunct the sun at the same time. Surprisingly, my world was not rocked. That’s the thing about Uranus. Sometimes the surprise is there is no surprise and nothing happens. With Uranus in Taurus there could have been earthquakes, financial disasters, food recalls, climate atrocities, etc. I am grateful that I experienced just another day in Pandemic USA. All  planets are direct now, but this is NOT the time to pursue new ventures. The astro weather is stormy and Mercury will station retrograde before January ends.

Lately I have been avoiding meditation and outdoor walks. This is due in part to feeling too antsy to be still and too foggy to get moving. I have been sleeping much longer though with more vivid dreams. I woke up angry this morning from a dream involving a betrayal by my sister. It took me a minute to realize that I did not have to carry this energy into my day.

On a brighter note, I have taken to communion with two archangels, Michael and Raphael.  Michael offers protection and Raphael offers healing. I ask them to appear to me during the day and their track record is pretty good. Michael has been showing up on a blog I follow. Yesterday they both showed up together in a homework assignment for my Seurat class. I enjoy experimenting with novel ways to  anchor in Spirit. Yet sometimes I forget about the light inside of me. While doing Reiki is a good reminder, sometimes it is not enough to sustain me. Lorie’s short video reminds us of the simple power inherent in our light. She cuts to the chase and her message cleared away some cobwebs that were accumulating within me.

We our energetic beings whether we believe it or not. That is the beauty of this gift. We are fortunate to be so  much more than flesh. However most of us were not taught about the beauty and the power of our divinity. But we can begin again, every day, hour, minute, second, nanosecond. Source is fine with reinvention. I have been working on kindness. I am spending more spiritual capital on telling people that I care, showing encouragement, and extending genuine compliments and praise. I want to give others what I would want to receive. It feels good and it costs nothing. I hope my remarks are received as sincere but that is none of my business. I am responsible for my actions and intentions. We all have to be accountable for our behaviors. That is what the younger folks call “adulting”. I call it being in integrity.

As I navigate the chaos in my country, I wish more people cared about accountability and integrity. So many are acting out, due to fear, greed, lack of power, or ignorance ( or a combination of any of these elements.) I do empathize. I am in no position to judge. It is sad to see so much darkness in plain sight. But that is the mission of the lightworker. Sometimes I forget what I signed up for. Lorie helps me remember so I can be kinder and more patient with myself and the collective. So let’s shine bright. Even Uranus would approve!
