We are all experiencing a time of imposed stillness and reflection. It is very often that when we have space to slow down or ‘stop’ what we have been doing, energies will rise to the surface to be acknowledged. It is true that sometimes we are even made to slow down in order to have space to ‘stop’ what we are doing, such as getting a cold or flu and needing to rest. This happens to a lot of people at the beginning of a holiday or summer break, when the routine has been so full and busy, that when you finally get to a point of disruption in that routine, energy that has been built up will arise to be cleared. Hopefully in a gentle way.
For some of us, this time has been very slow paced and we’ve been given the opportunity to reflect on what has been and which direction we are going. For others, this time has been demanding in a different way with schedules being uprooted and an emphasis on rearranging what we’ve already been doing but now is confined within four walls.
No matter what you have been going through, we are all feeling the same collective energy around us to one degree or another. This energy will affect you in different ways, and no matter what you have been going through or feeling, we can acknowledge and release the old energies of the past to make room for the new. This is very good timing as we have just received an abundant recharge from the summer solstice shift, which has propelled us forward in energies of celebration and a chance to step into a new beginning.
This is an especially potent time to release any stuck energies. This could be old hurts, feelings, traumas, or energetic weights. If you’re carrying a lot of old hurt, belief or heaviness, it affects the reality of receiving the source, the insight, to the increase of flow of energy that is around us now. Reiki has helped to alleviate these heavy feelings or even small places within. If you are not sure if you hold any of these feelings or pockets of energy within that may be blocked, use your breath or meditation to check into your body and notice what you feel. Are there any tense or tight spaces in your body? If any feelings are coming up, where are they sitting in your body?
There is impatience coming up to move forward, get out of the house, go to the beach, go do what we want to do or what we’ve been limited in doing lately. Take time to move consciously as you move, it doesn’t have to be slowly, but it may need to be. Taking the time to do it consciously is choosing to do it from the heart without rushing what impulse may be guiding you. Impatience, the need to hurry or decide quickly, may be the first response but deeper lies a reason for getting away from what is feeling uncomfortable. In those moments of discomfort, I would say, just let it be. Let it be by choosing a conscious path forward. Let this moment be an opportunity for you to reset your intentions. Reset your mindset. Reset to allow the light in. And just so you know, this doesn’t mean you have to do anything! This could mean a time for you to take NO action. To regroup from within. Take the first step forward gently by thanking yourself for all that you do. This is your precious time to allow a gentle flow of energy to dance around you, clearing and cleansing what may need to be released. All you need is an open heart, and perhaps some intentions.
