And happy belated new moon, lunar new year and post valentines!
We are in the middle of Eclipse season - and Eclipse season brings change.
Be that in externals, like changes in jobs, relationships, society but also internally through changes in how we feel towards other people and ideas and what we believe about ourselves and our potential.
Some of our biggest ahas happen during eclipse season/s.
We shift gears in big ways.
And if we resist the changes trying to surface, the non-physical has no choice but to step in, give us a Tower Moment and force us forward.
And that's when we tend to lose faith that this life is good.
Especially if the non-physical takes something (or worse, someone) we had faith in.
We slip into victim-mode.
And forget that no matter how low life seems, things are always working out.
We forget that things will ALWAYS get better.
We forget that it takes the bad moments, the wrong 'moves', the mistakes to get where we are going.
Because we forget that we are always moving forward.
That everything is always happening for a reason.
That we are never not on our path.
No matter how irrational our behaviour.
No matter how grim things look.
No matter how blurry our next steps feel.
There is a lot of change going on for a lot of you in the diary's community and if I can give any advice, it's to welcome the process and let it happen. Let yourself outgrow that which no longer supports who you're wanting to be. Stop holding onto the outdated because you don't know what's next. Lean into the discomfort of new beginnings.
People often ask me how I keep my faith through hard times.
And it's because, I know we are always supported.
I know we are always being guided.
I know we have a team walking alongside us every step of the way.
I see them.
I feel them.
I know they are there.
And there has never been a time they have asked me to trust what they are asking of me without being a few steps ahead to catch me if I stumble.
For those of you being Eclipsed:
I'm grateful you're growing.
I love that things aren't going your way.
I'm excited that you are being forced to fail forward.
Because I know a few months from now, whatever it is you're going through will be the best thing that ever happened to you.
See you this Wednesday!
