New moon, new season, new beginnings. Everything around you is showing signs of change and renewal. The energy of the New Moon just a couple days ago is still showering us with possibilities. The suggestion from the wise ones for this time is to re-examine what your current life looks like and see what needs to change.
Change comes easily to some and less so to others. I’m a change-maker by nature—as long as I’m calling the shots! When the shifts are less clear, uncertain, or unknown, then I have the usual fears come up.
What if ________ happens? Do I have what it takes to accomplish this? What if I don’t like how it turns out? Do I have to? Can't I just stick with the devil I know?
Do you hold back when you feel change coming?
Rather than resisting and trying to keep things the same, what would it look like to embrace the dynamic nature of life? What might you see if you were actively looking for places where you could turn disappointment or frustration into something positive or proactive?
Where would you like to be open to doing things differently?
In my own life I’m looking to see if there are issues I’m avoiding, if I’m maybe taking on things that aren’t mine, and where old patterns that I've been ignoring are no longer serving me.
When you come across a place that’s not aligned with your values or who you want to be there are many ways to work with that.
You might journal on it, meditate with a question in mind, or just sit with it for a while and see where your mind takes you. You don’t have to know what to do or what to change immediately. Just allow some space to explore, be aware, and let yourself to open to the possibilities.
To paraphrase the wise Greek philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesus, the only thing constant is change. As much as you may want to dig in your heels to keep things the same, generally speaking, you can’t. The universe is dynamic so you may as well be in the flow.
Ultimately, it comes down to how you use your energy, which, when you're highly sensitive is a really important topic. Do you want to focus on keeping things status quo or be proactive in embracing the winds of change?
Change is inevitable, but you get to decide how you respond.
