I'm a little slow this time around. We've had a ton going on and I'll be writing about that in another blog. For now though, it's time to get some New Moon messages out. This moon is providing quite a shake up for a lot of people, myself included. If you've been preparing for or expecting change, you're probably getting it right now. Take care of yourself as you go through these changes. It's important to continue to honour our own needs, even as the world spins around us.
It is said that pain in life is mostly optional, and that's true. Much of the pain that we experience in our lives is self-created. It's our own perception of things that usually gets us into trouble, not the actual circumstance or event. That's not to say that people don't experience major trauma in their lives, because they do, it's only that many of our day-to-day experiences create unnecessary pain. That's what we're here to talk about, the unnecessary pain we put ourselves through in order to learn or understand something.
When we talk about manifesting anything, we hear the same phrases and ideas being tossed around. It's this idea that if I ask for what I want and I believe I can have it, that it will come. That is true. On a really basic level, that is true. But for anybody that's ever struggled with manifesting anything, we know there's more to it.
The saying goes that happiness is an inside job. What does that mean? Regardless of what's going on around us we have the power to be happy in the moment. That isn't necessarily an easy thing to do, but the recognition of the possibility of it is an important first step.
There is a saying in spiritual circles that "You are only one decision away from a new life". This is true, but it's not nearly as instant as this makes it seem. The trick to creating that new life is staying with your original decision. You can decide to believe in yourself, you can even do that one minute to the next if you allow it, but it can take time for the results of that decision to show up. In that time, fear, anxiety, and worry also have a tendency to show up.
Humans love to avoid change. We make all kinds of excuses about why we need to stay where we are, why we can't change, why it's too hard, and why we shouldn't have to keep changing. The simple truth is this; You will not be happy and you will be stuck in your current situation until you make a firm decision to change it.
