This Mercury Retrograde many will say has brought an enormous amount of energetic 'tests' although that one word, in and of itself, is one of many facets to what we are experiencing. The message from last week continues on into this week and our redefining the concept of surrender has been coming in a number of ways. Whatever each of us may be navigating within our personal life keep to heart and mind that life, and most especially and importantly, love have not left us. Rather it is being reinvented, rediscovered and renewed within us. Also keep to our heart of hearts that this surrendering, as was touched upon yesterday, is not a giving up. It is empowering to dive into the Divine River of Life. We are immersing ourselves as we unlock those
inner doors to reconnect with Spirit, Source, God/dess or however each of us perceives and identifies. We are showing that we do care, that we do love and the immeasurable grace, strength, courage, and patience that we are stepping into. Attributes that the polar bear and lioness carry to share with us and assist us seeing that these are not missing in our lives. They are being refocused, rejuvenated and enhanced.
The polar bears strength and commitment are apart of
the fruits that enable them to not only survive in any situation but to thrive. That is a key message. Thriving, excelling and living abundantly which the lioness accentuates in how to confidently, passionately and lovingly create by being in the moment. They both know themselves and their environment intimately. We embody more and more the aspects of healer, provider, protector and nurturer. Here again is the 'circle of the life' as we surrender to the flow of life. In there we are opening, embracing and immersing ourselves with Unconditional Love. There is nothing more Divine than that and that is and always has been apart of YOU. Life, Love, Earth, Spirit. All are apart of You and let us begin seeing this Divine Matrix more clearly and begin manifesting and creating change and bridges within ourselves and around to see life and love reaffirmed with our Earth and One Another.
Surrender to the Flow of Life
Today would be
excellent day to gracefully surrender to the flow of life, accepting things as
they are in this moment and moving into the next moment from that place of
To surrender does not mean
that you no longer care about your life. It is not apathy. It is acceptance
that fighting the current will only exhaust you. It is acceptance that the best
way to move in a certain direction is to use the power of the river, sensing how
things are and just gently dipping down an arm as a tiller, so that you might
catch the fork of the river that appeals to you.
Surrendering to the flow
can also be recognition that if you allow life to propel you, you can do so
easily and gracefully, with very little effort indeed.
Look forward, feel the
power and use it. If you spend your time looking back at what has been, you
will not see the wonderful things flowing toward you, nor will you notice the
approaching rapids until it is too late to avoid them.
Relax into the flow. Steer
yourself gently, taking advantage of the movement and current which surround
you. Watch and feel how things are and gently join the flow of life.
