It is usually around this time every year that my blogs center topics of healing, recovering, and the releasing of deep-seated fears. This year is no different. As the veil thins in late fall granting us greater access to the spirit world, you have support in prayer, thought and deed.
Shadow work – the process of integrated into our full selves the disowned parts and insecurities of who we are that we’ve deemed bad or unwanted and, thus, placed in the dark shadow of our psyches – is not easy. But if you are experiencing constant triggers, feeling irritable and extra sensitive while dealing with unresolved stuff, now is the time to reclaim.
Journaling, energy work and correspondences such as crystals and oracle cards, physical fitness and time spent in counsel with a medical health professional, are just a few tools that can be utilized while navigating these potent times. In other words, you don’t have to do this alone.
You can also call on your ancestors, reach out to your angels and spirit guides, perform rituals, sit in meditation, make offerings to your God/dess and call on your tribe of friends to help you through what looks to be a period of transformation. I’ve got this special running, too, if needed.
It makes absolute sense for anyone right now to be feeling different sentiments that span the spectrum of emotions, and you can expect this to continue in an amplified way as we move closer to the end of the month with another culminating full moon on All Hallows Eve next week.
So repeat after me: “I can afford to give myself a little more grace.”
Let this be your mantra. Don’t shun discomfort; instead, get curious about what it means for you. Embrace your shadow. Try some radical self-acceptance. You owe it to yourself after a tough year. You deserve to be whole and healed.
Check your horoscopes to see what’s in store for this week ahead, and don’t forget to read for your Ascendant sign too.
