Following on from last week, I am focused on my projects in this moment and it’s been a great place to be. It has been good to focus on what I love in between the madness and busyness that comes from daily life. Daily life can even take over at times but I think if you really want something you will always find time for it no matter what it takes.
This week has brought us the energy of the Full Moon in Capricorn. Full moons have historically been quite unsettling for me and usually my emotions can feel quite out of balance but this week has been dare I say relatively calm compared to other full moons. That’s not to say stuff doesn’t come up but I believe when we have clear goals in mind then somehow doorways open up and pave way for opportunities. It’s about remembering to look at what is in front of us and working with what we have. During full moons and most days I always try to look for something to be grateful for. As they say, what you appreciate appreciates and this is so true.
Since we have reached more than the halfway mark for the year it is a super time to think about what we would like to achieve for the rest of the year and build our mindset around it in a fulfilling way. Here are some affirmations to get you started:
I am the author of my life.
I have the capacity to take committed action towards the life of my dreams.
I am filled with empowered thoughts to create my best reality.
“No matter what may have happened yesterday, a new day of fresh possibility has dawned. You’re not the same person today as you were yesterday.” (Daisaku Ikeda)
Every moment is an opportunity to change your story and start again. As we move through our daily lives, we are always evolving even if we don’t realise it at the time. It is true that we are not the same person as we were yesterday. In some ways that can bring a great deal of comfort. It all depends on perspective.
Wherever we are in life is where we are meant to be. It is full of lessons and full of surprises too. The most important thing is to focus on what we have now and what we can do now. There is always something we can do… always.
I can think of many situations over the years that felt impossible to overcome but what has really helped me is to have that deep knowing and faith in something larger than myself. It has helped me to look beyond myself and see new possibilities. In doing so it has created space and allowed changes to bring forth what is needed for my soul evolution.
Sometimes in life we don’t get what we want but I believe we get what we need. Navigating ourselves through changes is not always easy and sometimes its best to go with the flow, letting our experiences reveal to us more of who we are and what we need to know when the time is right. In the meantime, be glad and appreciative of what you have and life will always give you more to be grateful for. Celebrate who you were and who you are becoming.
Sometimes in order to open a new door, it requires leaving situations behind that no longer serve you. It can mean leaving a whole life behind and although it may be all you have ever known, you know that does not mean that this is all there is. There can be so much more if you believe in yourself and have faith in what you cannot see with the naked eye but see inside every nerve and fibre of your being. It is there waiting in the wings to set the world alight, ready for you to be who you have always been.
I feel so deeply moved right now that I really wanted to share that energy with you. There was a time in my life I never thought I’d make it through alive and here I am living a new life that is beyond anything I could have ever imagined. During that time of transition, clearing the pathway to my own soul has been very hard and took me to places that were uncomfortable and upsetting, yet magical and miraculous all at the same time. I cried and I laughed and then cried and laughed some more, always feeling grateful for my experiences and the people around me who have supported me through it.
While I may never forget, I can see clearly the gifts and the wisdom from the overcoming. It was all meant to be to show me the way to my own heart. I do feel a little sad because I am going through a very big ending right now. However, on the other side of that is a very new beginning which fills me with so much joy too. It gives me hope for a bright future that is already shining on me and I make a choice every day no matter what to see that. I smile as I write this, knowing that everything I need is already here. I am that I am.
