How are you doing? I hope your week is going well. I know for me it’s been a bit of a tumultuous time. Not full blown upheavel but a rollercoaster of emotions – big ups and careening downs.
The outside influences of the last week of global atrocities, constant uncertainly in the world, being aware of conversations where people are feeling that the much of the world is starting to turn on our beautiful country, friends who are starting to fear international travel, whew, … add to it the full moon energy and a couple of planets in retrograde – wowsa!
In my personal space my son turned 16 last week. It’s definitely been a time of celebration of him moving into a new phase of independence AND I can’t help but notice a low level of sadness that took hold of me as my last child passes into this milestone. Being with the dualality of “I have more freedom” and “I’m not needed in the same way”. Ahhh… breathing through it.
Add to it an ongoing sinus infection that is really irritating me… I know that’s what sinus infections are all about in the emotional world – irritation. AND, I started working with an amazing acupuncturist and healer so I’m intending for things to shift.
All of this and business stuff too!
One bit of wisdom I am learning in my life journey is that there is always going to be “stuff” coming up. And nowadays the stuff comes fast and furious and we don’t have a lot of power over the stuff (circumstances, people, planets) happening around us.
