You’re Stronger Than You ThinkAug 31, 2021
When I started this month’s reading, I was met with some resistance, like the information was some protection around the information. Hmmm…
I remembered there was something a bit intense about the Fall in my 2021 Annual Forecast, so I went back and took a look. Here’s what I found:
SEPTEMBER And what began emerging in August continues here. Life can feel overwhelming but, again, it's just the pressure of change. And that's a good thing. Be flexible. Be patient. Be mindful. Be happy.
OCTOBER Some may be experiencing flashbacks from 2020. We may get triggered into feeling: Oh, no. Not again! You will be okay. We will be okay. It's not as bad as it seems and we're WAY better at dealing with big situations now. Remember our 2021 theme of Endurance. You're stronger than you think.
NOVEMBER See? Things have already started to calm down. Where 2020 was filled with "I can't breathe" moments, this month we feel like we can breathe deeply. We feel a deeper calm than we've felt in a long time. It comes from a deep inner knowing that we're almost there. We've almost turned the corner on the shift we've sought to make.
So, yeah. We’re not out of the woods yet.
I think what can really support us now is one of the energy themes I got for 2021: Endurance. We have been enduring this limiting experience with the pandemic for a long time now. And, it seems, so many people also have layers upon that. I’m trapped inside because the air here is unbreathable because of smoke. Another friend was injured. Another friend’s father just passed away from Covid. Layers upon layers starting with an underlying layer of a pandemic that’s not letting up.
Right. I’m sure I’m not saying anything you don’t know. But the message I got about endurance when I wrote the Forecast for the year was: Remember. You’re stronger than you think. Have courage. Be brave and carry on.
A strong network of support helps now, too. Do you have people in your life who are supportive? Encouraging? There for you in the lows and celebrating the highs? There are ways to use this time so that when this cycle ends, we come out stronger and clearer than before.
There are other energies moving this month besides the pressure from the pandemic. I also got the words smooth sailing, meaning that what we take on early in the month will go smoothly and easily. So focus on what you need to get done in the first two or three weeks of September before things become more complicated. Enjoy the wins. The other energy themes for this year were pursuit, adaptability and forgiveness. Know that the energy is there for us to move through this year with grace and purpose even when things may feel challenging and look a bit dim.
We can’t expect global transformation to be easy or even comfortable. It’s madness. It’s chaos. It’s pressure. And it’s worth it.
I’m so glad we’re walking through this together. May you reside in the eye of the storm. And when you fall out, have the support you need to get back in.
