It's been one crazy year full of wonderful things: the birth of a dream, Radiate Wellness, and coming together in a healing community; earning my Reiki Master; becoming certified in QHHT and co-leasing a beautiful office space.
Many of my friends and clients (aka pre-friends) have had a rough year, with illness, surgery, the loss of loved ones, as well as job loss or transition. If that's you, please accept our love and blessings--and a rain check for a hug when we see you.
As I sat quietly with my guides this morning preparing for a client later and mulling over this blog post, I felt their peace. My master guide, Merlin, let me know that he would like to speak to you (a treat, because he's usually pretty quiet with others), so here we go:
It should be no surprise to you that so much is converging for you this week and into the next: two major religious holidays, the winter solstice (also a holiday for many), Kwanzaa, and Mercury Retrograde. The energies are very high, because so much energy is clearing globally. You are not alone in feeling it.
This is a mystical, holy time of year, which is why so many religions have celebrations and ritual now, though the Earth appears dead in your Northern hemisphere. It's a time for you to stay inside; to cease growing crops. It's dark, which is a symbol of either beauty or loneliness, depending on your viewpoint. And this year, several holidays fall dring a Mercury retrograde.
Humans find retrogrades uncomfortable, but they are a time to set things right, to fix past mistakes, to clear the air. To take the time needed to sit back and look for the 'T's to cross and the 'I's to dot. Many of you, including the one transcribing my words, is far from feeling “the holiday spirit.” This is a challenging time for many. You are missing loved ones, family members are getting older, many are in poor health, your usual traditions are changing, the many demands you feel around you feel like they're pressing inward. Indeed the energies are very heavy, I will admit. Why else would there be a retrograde at the end of the year? So much needs to be released! The year 2017 will feel like a breath of fresh air, but we in my station want you to be aware that it will also be challenging as old systems move to make way for the new. However, the energy will be lighter, which will make it easier as you adapt through the changes. As you may say, “Trust us. We've got this.”
Know that you have our support. We are with you always.
