This week I felt compelled to pull some oracle cards on behalf of all of us to help me write about a topic that everyone could relate to. It’s mercury retrograde in Taurus which invites us to dive into the theme it represents which is to slow right down and address business, money, worth, value and the way we structure our lives.
BY the way this doesn’t replace the weekly oracle reading on the universal energies this week, rather a way to give us all some practical tips on how to co-create in partnership with Spirit.
So I asked “What do we need to know this week to keep us aligned and on track with our highest good to live the life we really desire?”
Well no surprise I chose 3 cards Round and Round, Why? ( in the protection position) and Not For You
In a nutshell the cards tell a story about the impact of those narratives rooted in the past that get triggered and bring us back to the same place again over and over. You know what I’m talking about – those moments when you hit a brick wall around your business, discover you’re dating the same kind of unavailable man you thought you were done with, realize that you attracted a new friend with loads of charisma but is turning out to come with way too much drama, find yourself enmeshed with someone who is sucking your energy dry. Maybe your inner bag lady has woken up inside you to tell you that you are about to run out of money any minute now and end up homeless. Have you hit that same invisible wall around your abundance?
Sound familiar? Confusing? Irritating?
Here you are on your way, knowing you have a plan, Spirit has a plan, you’ve done so much work on yourself you would rather eat live worms than read another self help book. You can recite the universal laws of manifestation in your sleep. Yet Ta-Da you are back quivering in your shoes wondering what you did wrong.
Truth is you did nothing wrong! What we all need to remember is if we do what we did, tell the same story as before, we will reinforce the unconscious beliefs that prevent us from living the life we really want. If you and I want to live a new life, one in which we live a new story seeing ourselves as victors and co-creators rather than victims subject to the whims of fate we need to start telling a new story about all of it.
It sounds easy but it does take some effort.
I know because I’m constantly aware of this pattern that shows up in my life. Yet I also know that even though I still get triggered I really can short circuit the pattern with a new narrative.
Let’s break it down.
Tip #1. – Radical Acceptance of the Old Story
Stop “working on yourself” and start lovingly and radically accepting yourself. You might not agree with me but the first thing most people do who are on the conscious co-creator path is head straight into resistance and refusal. “ Let’s find out what’s wrong with me, how I got wounded and dig up this pattern and destroy it”. The issue with this is that you end up re-anchoring and reinforcing the old story by trying to analyze it then refute it because you think that should be enough. You’d think once you understand it intellectually that will change it. It helps to understand yes, but that is only a tiny step forward and gets even more confusing when you find yourself right back where you started. But I KNEW BETTER. Yep – AH-Gain.
Truth is you get to do something different. You can tell a new story. See things through a different perspective.
Since its mercury retrograde in Taurus and tax time just happened I am knee deep in financial “ stuff” which can trigger some of my old story around safety, and fear of financial insecurity.
We’ve hired a few new amazing people for my team and are expanding my business to serve my clients and fans in a better way than ever.
We’re in a transition phase where we’re temporarily out of balance on the books.
While my husband is zen about it all, I will automatically with no reason whatsoever and without fail initially get thrown into the Twilight Zone where I go a teeny bit kookoo (and I hate admitting this to you) and get all squirrelly with anxiety that the whole ship will sink at any minute. My old story is that my parents went from rich to poor and died destitute. Yes that was true. But If I keep up the old story then it will all go to the bottom of a metaphoric sea.
My thinking will cause my emotions to tell my body we’re in bad shape then my choices and behaviors will reflect that and signal to the universe that I’d like to wreck my life. Would I choose that willingly? No way! It’s automatic and if you have programs that get switched on you might have some automatic stories too. The trick is to tell a new story and switch on a different cascade of thoughts, feelings, hormones, impulses, actions and signal the universe from a different frequency on the manifesting dial.
Tip# 2 – Know the New Story and Why You Desire it.
How to change the past and short circuit the automatic stories that don’t serve you anymore? Know the story you want to be telling instead. Remember the outer world changes when you change inside first. If you’re riveted in fear when you think about money, with the litany of “not enough” chances are you will see that out pictured in your outer world pretty quickly. Instead of worrying about the money, consider your personal currency instead. All your skills and ideas, imagination and drive, coupled with a healthy sense of self worth make you a magnet for a prosperous outcome. Focus on your service, and surrender the results to the universe, then the appropriate form will manifest. Imagine how you want to feel when you see yourself as prosperous, successfully serving others. How does it feel to have a healthy sense of worthiness? Can you imagine how feeling like everything about you is enough for this world? Can you allow yourself to release your anxieties and just be? Do you know why you want the life you want?
Tip #3 – Wear the World Loosely.
How do you become the person who lives the life you desire? The biggest secret of all, also the most irritating is that you need to surrender the outcome to the universe, your Higher Power, Spirit or God ( there are loads of names just pick one that fits your beliefs ) without any glommy attachment to having, holding on to, accumulating, or wanting too much. A former therapist of mine said “ You have to be “hootless”. That’s right, practice the new story that you are satisfied, and grateful for your life, and know that your energy blended with Spirit creates miracles. You just don’t get to pick the form. But you can clean up the container, the foundations and the already existing form to welcome in something new.
You can’t manifest anything new and vital until you make space for it.
Just remember everything – the whole world is in transition and seeking its true expression of value and currency. It’s not about the money so much as its about the foundations of managing energy, value, worth, motive and velocity.
Certainty is a place inside you and can’t come from any material accumulation of stuff or any outer success you think will help define you. Be the prosperous you, feeling your desires come to fruition as a state of being in advance of seeing it. Clean house, pay bills get your finances in order and make room for good.
You will be amazed at the result.
That was a tad long winded but a worthy subject to discuss. Ok love to hear your thoughts. Tag You’re it!
Sending you all my love!
