Balance, we all strive for it, but it’s not a constant, it is ever evolving. Some days you’ll have it, some days you will most certainly not. The key is to become aware of, and recognize when you’re becoming imbalanced.
October falls in the astrological sign of Libra, which is all about balance. This is a perfect time to take stock of your overall picture of balance: giving and receiving, doing and being, taking action and imagining, creating and allowing. Sometimes you’ll need to be on one side of the spectrum for a while; for example, it may serve you to be taking action for days or weeks. But if you’ve been in an intensive time of action, then it’s necessary to create time for rest so that you can catch up to yourself. Oftentimes people create illnesses as a way to slow down- it seems that’s the way we give ourselves permission to stop. Give yourself permission first; give yourself that gift of balance.
The same holds true if you’ve been too long in a place of inaction. If you stay still for too long, it can be hard to motivate and get moving. It can also be a place to hide.
This week, notice how balanced you are, and where you see imbalances, strive to correct them. You’ll know if you’re too far to one side and you feel off. Claim what you need for yourself; after all, it’s your sanity and health. Take care of yourself first or you’ll be of no use to others.
On a separate note (and this is by no means political, I want to make that very clear, as this is a safe space for healing), in my sessions the last 2 days, a few women mentioned feeling unexplained rage. The Kavanaugh hearings have incited incredible rage in the collective consciousness regarding the old paradigm of “power over” and the places women haven’t had a voice. It’s not just women affected, chauvinism destroyed the balance of feminine energy in men as well. So if you feel angry, tired, or short tempered for no reason, most likely you’re feeling all the pain and rage that’s coming to the surface; centuries of mistreatment and silence. Be gentle with yourself. Sometimes just knowing where something is coming from helps. If it gets too intense, do some rage release techniques. You can always reach out if you have questions or need support.
Have a beautifully balanced week!
