This week, just breathe and allow. We start the week with a message from Oonagh, a Celtic goddess that can help us ease through transitions (thank, Goddess!). The full moon/lunar eclipse brought a lot of repressed emotions, patterns, and beliefs to light for most of us and we’ve been processing it out. With this in mind, Oonagh reminds us to take it easy! Everything is happening exactly as it’s supposed to and in the proper time frame as well. Pushing and stressing over your situation will only have the adverse effect of moving it farther away from you. In addition, taking time to nurture yourself and others can harmonize your situation/life and help you to ease your visions into focus. This is a week to let your hair down and trust that the Divine is right alongside you helping you along. When things start to feel overwhelming, use the peace and serenity of Dove to remind you to slow down, pause, and breathe!
The cards this week flow really well together. Sedna, the eskimo and Inuit goddess of the sea, comes through mid-week to show us that the Divine is infinite and that we are connected to this limitless potential. Again, remember to put worry aside. When it starts to rise, allow it to wash through and out of you. Reconnect with your center. The message here as well is one of not overdoing things. There must be give and take in every situation. If you only give, you will become depleted and resentful and this will lead to a feeling of lack, whereas if you only receive you will not be able to experience the joy of what you have. Give with courage and receive with gratitude and you will naturally fall into a vibration of abundance and joy.
We finish the week with Yemanya, the African and Brazilian goddess that created the sea. We have two ocean goddesses this week! This emphasizes that this is a week of not only abundance, but creativity, intuition, and emotions. As with everything, focus on balance. Being engaged in the creative process allows you to express your divinity, as it is God in action. The truth is that we are always creating, even when we are choosing to not. Use intention and presence to create a story that empowers and upholds you, and use your intuition to check in with your higher self. What story would you like to tell? What aspects of your current tale would you like to change?
As we create with purpose, we propel our desires into motion by sending a strong message to Spirit. The Divine responds by opening doors for us. Remember though that we were shown that we need to relax into this – no pushing! Create your story, set the idea in motion, and allow Spirit to show you the path. Once the doors open, walk through them! No sabotaging yourself here; you have earned this and it is time to go the whole mile. The whale in Sedna’s card is a message that you are on your soul path so be sure to honor the opportunities that allow you to navigate it, and the Dolphin in Yemaya’s guides you to stay in a place of joy and play. Have fun with this process!
