Happy Thanksgiving!! (and full moon!)
If you've been following me for a while you probably know Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love how the focus is preparing a delicious family meal and coming together in gratitude and appreciation for each other and life in general.
On that note, I wanted to share just how grateful I am that you are here. I am truly, deeply grateful, thank you!
And I don't mean that in a cheesy, cliche way, it really does mean the world to me that you are a part of this community. It's because of you that I keep going and feel encouraged to continue.
It fills my heart with joy that you are on this path of awakening and inner work with me. I truly believe that this is the most important work we can all be doing both individually and collectively to make this world a better place... so once again, thank YOU!
Just in case you didn't know, today is also a FULL MOON during mercury retrograde... double whammy!
Full moon energy often equals heightened emotions, drama, and a bit of chaos where the hidden aspects of your life that aren't working are brought to light. Add mercury retrograde into the mix and you could potentially be dealing with some major crazy at the dinner table!
Check it out:
"Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius can make everyone doubly tactless. With this hotheaded energy flying around, choose your words carefully. Sagittarius is prone to overreact and fly off the handle, and when everyone feels that way, there can be a ton of drama firing off from all directions. Even the most polite, soft-spoken person might get caught in the crossfire of the heated arguments sure to pop off during this particularly high-energy retrograde.
This final retrograde of 2018 (and the energy of Mercury in Sagittarius in general) helps you speak your truth and defend your beliefs unapologetically—even if it means ending relationships and cutting off loose ends in the process. This has been a year of transformation and tons of tough changes. The clutter has been cleared out, though, and after this final speed bump ends on December 6, it’s clear skies ahead in 2019!" - (taken from jakesastrology)
So what can you when the shit hits the fan??
Soul Care Rx
What you focus on you experience more of so immediately shift your focus to something good... look around you, practice gratitude. What can you appreciate about this moment? What you appreciate, appreciates.
Can you even eventually find humor in the chaos?
When I take a step back and witness the crazy, instead of engage with the crazy, and I shift my perspective to see how everyone is just reacting out of their own fears and insecurities, I can have greater compassion AND find the humor in the insanity.
One last thought before you finish up your holiday preparations.
What if this were your last meal on earth? How would you want to show up for yourself and for others? What would you want them to know? I know that's a heavy question but it can shift your focus fast and drop you back into what matters most.
