Hello boundary issues! If you haven’t already been actively working on creating safe boundaries for yourself (and the benefit of those around you) then your buttons are going to be pushed a bit today. If you have good boundaries or have been actively working on them, they will be tested a bit. This is just a check as most of us really need some time to ourselves right no.
In fact, the other challenge facing all you is the lack of acceptance of your own innocence. For many the attitude looks likes “waiting for the other shoe to drop” or “it can’t be that easy”. Quit creating more shoes and yes, it is possible for life to blessed and easy. It starts with you accepting that is possible for you good and innocent. You may call it being jaded or realistic, throwing extra guilt on yourself for things you haven’t done yet creates openings in your energy and you guessed it, motivates others to push your boundaries. But if you keep calling punishment down on yourself, the universe will provide it.
A quiet mediation is defiantly called for today, and again tomorrow. It is a time to focus on training your body to know what it feels like to have serenity and joy in your life. From there reconnect with your youngest memory of yourself, feel how free and safe you felt then. If, those feelings were not present for you at that time, give them to that version of yourself. Let that version of you know what it feels like to not need forgiveness.

The clouds seem to have parted and you are left with a new clarity. It is the beginning of a new phase in your life that leaves you feeling rather vulnerable and possibly also a little lost. The things that used to distract you no longer work and you are being forced to look at what parts of you are really important. It is time to start moving again. For a little while, serenity may be a bit elusive as sitting still is not as comfortable as it used to be. There is a need to move and you must follow that urge. Time to get out of town for the day and shift your energy through movement. Even going to the gym will help or taking a walk around the block. The movement will help unblock the last little bits of forgiveness that you need to address. It is time to forgive and move on, and moving your body out of its current local with make things a lot easier.

There have been so many changes and redirects lately that the sudden calm may feel a bit strange. Things are suddenly not going forward, but it is serving two purposes. The first is to give you some breathing room and time to reflect. The second is that while things around you are momentarily still, changes are happening behind the scenes that are setting you up for the next wave. So take joy in the calm waters, they won’t last too long and soon you will be back on track and the universe will be unveiling some new surprises.

The theme for the spring seems to be how we deal with disruptions and plans going awry. Any things are going to be falling apart in many different ways to make way for the new. While you can see intellectually that a clean slate is a great place to grow from, it can be frustrating to deal with the constant redirects and hurdles that are being thrown at us right now. Careful planning right now will not prevent the universe from showing you a new path. So don’t get too attached to your plans, you will get where you are going, there is just a lot of construction going on as you are being constantly rerouted to what will be a better path. The lesson today is to not take it all personally. These detours are not a judgment on you, they are there to serve you, so be thankful that you don’t have to learn everything the hard way.

Take advantage of today. There is joy to be had if you seize the moment and remain open to adventures. Just be aware of people who may take advantage of you, because with this influx of energy, you are wide open. Recheck your boundaries to make sure they are in place and being enforced, and maintain an attitude of gratitude for all the amazing things that are coming your way.
The fruits of your labor are ready and now it is time to get back to work. The plans that you have set in motion are starting to work and now you must do the work to maintain your success. There is great joy in living the life you wanted to, but don’t you must keep up the good work to keep the dream alive. Don’t let all of you preparation be for naught, for this is a crucial time and if you let it slip away the rebuilding of the dream will be much more difficult.
The sun is now shining from within. Use your newfound serenity to guide your next actions. It may be time to drop some of the plans you had that were not born out of love and joy. Today you have access to the true desires of you heart and the courage to follow through.
Ah! The spark has gone! The twinkle in your eyes in a bit dim. Everything is taking way too long and the process is way too complex. Or at least that is the way it seems. This is only a test, as is many things. No, I am not going to say “you need to learn patience”. That is for another day, today the issue today is one of serenity. So of course, we go the serenity prayer. “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.” The last part many be the trickiest for some.
Just remember that the best place to find things you can change is inside yourself. You can’t change another person by force of will or long debates, but you can decide to let it go and be at peace with the other person as they are, even if you don’t like what they have to say.
In addition to my runes and cards I am also a Theta energy healer and have a lot of fun with it. While I can look at a person’s chakras and gain a lot of information just through the color, intensity and clarity, I have found a way to gain a different insight. Most of my work involves removing trapped negative emotions from the chakras and they usually make themselves known pretty quickly when I am doing Theta. This is a fun way to combine the two modalities and help the person see what is going on inside. It also helps illuminate how one belief can cause a domino effect and can help negative beliefs reinforce each other. We don’t just believe something on one level, the belief gets passed around and altered and strengthened. Which is why it is important to find and clear out the negative beliefs, so you can stop making up stories about yourself and the world around you.
I drew two lines of runes from the top chakra down for this imaginary man, but will read them from the bottom up. The right hand column is the emotions and the left hand column is the topic it deals with. I could write an essay on each of the pairing but it will keep it very simplified. This is also a very generalized example. Here is the sample I drew:
So, this person is holding shame in the root chakra and it is related to how he sees himself as man. He does not feel that he is behaving in the way his definition of a man should. Is he using his strength to be a bully or to support people who are weaker? To help this person I would first release the shame, and then give him access to the definition true strength.
The second chakra shows to me that he does not believe that god loves him. Ouch! This can be a biggie and takes belief work in theta to clear up. But finding a belief like this also helps clear up many of the other beliefs that stem from it.
Not surprisingly the third charka is showing that his faith has recently been shaken by a seemingly random event. It is trying to reinforce the belief of the charka below by saying “Yes, you did say that I am not loved and this proved it!”
Not to despair, the heart chakra is pretty solid in the wisdom that can be gained when joy is lost.
The throat chakra, though, seems to think that its prayers are not being answered. Again, reinforcing the second chakra’s belief.
And then we get to the third eye which is saying that he has waited and waited and waited and has not seen the signal. His patience is running thin and no wonder when he is in a crisis of faith.
The crown chakra shows us that he has denied all progress with his connection to the divine. Though there has been progress, the signal has been sent and the prayers will be answered and there is a reason for the randomness in his life. It all comes back to the belief that he is not worthy of God’s love because he is not “man” enough.
So from the first two we find the root of it all, but it is important to look at all of them because when you are conscious of your issues and where they stem from the healing has a greater impact. I could just deal with the issues of masculinity and stop there. But knowing how it impacted his faith in god and tracing the effects it had helps him let go of all of it. Once the issues are clear, then we can begin the belief work in Theta.
Right now you are not seeing the positive side of things. Yes, yesterday’s rune was rough on some but that doesn’t mean that it is time to stay stuck in the mud. There are thing to be grateful for, though you may have to start small to get the ball rolling. Is it sunny? Did anything make you laugh today? Who out there loves you? It is time to count your blessings and be grateful for the things you do have instead of worrying about the things you don’t have yet or will never have. Showing appreciation for what you have draws more of the same to you. Want more joy? Be thankful for the joy you have. It really does work. When I was waitressing and I some one left me a less than amazing tip I would jump up and down with excitement. It seems silly and the other girls never understood it, but after that the tips always got better.
