A Time to Trust, To Be Love & To Re-Dream the Dream

 It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us…

How are you going today?

If you’re going like anyone else I’ve spoken with lately then you may have been finding things rather tough.

Especially this last week or so and there’s a reason for that.

The current Cosmic line up is not exactly favourable for forward momentum, but I want you to know that it’s okay.

It’s okay to feel frustrated with your life, it’s okay if you’re feeling disappointed, let down and even downright miserable right now.

Feel it and sit with it, but please don’t give up and please don’t think that it’s going to last forever.

We have Mars (planet of action) currently sitting at 23degrees and moving ever so ever so slowly. He’ll stay at this point until he turns direct next Thursday.

That means that most (if not all of us) are feeling a little stuck in life right now. There can be blocks, frustrations and a sense of being held back and that can have us running headlong into dead ends and road blocks.

On top of that, we have just encountered the second hit of this year’s Saturn/Neptune square. The second hit means we’re in the middle of it right now. Right in the midst of a sense of lack, a sense of loss, disappointment, disillusion and perhaps even a sense of complete despair for some.

This type of energy can bring up depression and a sense of powerlessness. It can have us questioning what we’re doing with our lives; whether the dreams we long for and wish to pursue are even valid any more and are we ridiculous for even aspiring towards them?

Life can feel grim and rather like a Charles Dickens novel at such times, but you know what? There is always a purpose.

This energy can teach us a great deal if we really take the time to slow down and to take it all in.

Here are my tips on how to get through:

  • First and Foremost – Keep it simple. Simplify your life and take it day by day. Be patient…
  • If you are meeting with frustration, just stop for a while and breathe. Take some time out…
  • Spend time in nature – get outside (in the Sun, if that’s possible). Sit by trees, play ball in the park, listen to the birds, walk by the Ocean…
  • Notice what you feel is dismal about your life – where are you frustrated? What do you dislike? Write it down on your ‘I’d love to change’ list…
  • Notice what you love about your life – where do you feel that things are working really well? What brings you joy in your life? Write it down on your “I am immensely grateful for” list…
  • Now write out what you’d love to bring into your life. Perhaps create a manifestation board. Again, I recommend keeping it simple. Start with the easy wins. You can create a manifestation board by using an A3 piece of cardboard. Glue images on the card of what you’d like to bring into your life. If you’re Arty, really go to town and get creative with it. Enjoy the process. Allow yourself to dream. Allow yourself to literally re-dream the dream and to reconnect with who you are. What do you actually want from your life?..
  • Mars is on Scorpio 24: “Crowds Coming Down The Mountain To Listen To One Inspired Man” so do what inspires you. Play YouTube movies of inspirational speakers, Play loud music, dance…
  • In keeping with the previous point, stay away from the TV and the News if you feel that it is pulling on your energy. Keep your vibration as high as you can and again, do the simple things that bring you a sense joy at this time…
  • Move your body. Walk (or run), do Yoga, Stretch, Create a Home-Routine of squats and window sill dips…
  • If you’re at home with youngsters, play active games with them and listen to your children giggle…
  • Watch an inspirational movie or, perhaps a tearjerker that enables you to let out any blocked emotion…
  • Stay away from alcohol and drugs, as these can further deepen those depressive moods…
  • Connect with family, friends and loved ones and enjoy an afternoon tea together…
  • Be There for Each Other…
  • Hold and Support one another…
  • Meditate…
  • Keep the Faith…

Once Mars begins to pick up speed (after next week), we should start to feel a sense that things are progressing a little more.

The final hit of the Saturn/Neptune square will occur early September.

That gives us 11 weeks to really work with it…

To feel our sadness, to confront our fears, to acknowledge our worries.

To let go of what is no longer working within our lives nor bringing us joy and to ultimately RE-DREAM the DREAM.

How about we make a pact? A pact that during the next 11 weeks we will:

Be Kindness, Be Love and Be unto Others What we would Love For Ourselves?

With that approach, who knows what changes we could bring forth over the next couple of months…
