Feeling Like Shit? Love Yourself More (Mercury Retrograde Advice)

Abundance Marix Logo

 

Below is an excerpt from my “How to Make Love to Your Life” class. I wanted to share it with my blog readers because a lot of us are going through powerful cycles of change and transition and the most powerful thing we can do is to allow LOVE and UNDERSTANDING to be what guides us (rather than judgement and fear).

I hope this little excerpt blesses you!

 

HI LOVES!

Are you feeling Mercury Retrograde yet?

I felt this energy a couple days early, and I’ve been in a weird cloud like I’m suspended OUTSIDE of time.

Last week I felt alive, confident, AWAKE. This week I’ve felt like “What am I doing here, again? What’s my mission? Why am I teaching this class?”

Mercury Retrograde is one of a trillion different reasons I could use to explain “why” I feel this way, but what matters most to me is the reminder that we don’t always feel happy, and we don’t always know what to do (even when we’ve learned so much — even when we have tools to help along the way). 🛠

This helps me remember that I’m not MORE worthy of love when I feel good or when I’m performing well. In fact, it’s in the times when I don’t feel great that I need to apply love and understanding the most.

In the past when I would cycle through these lower energies, I wasted my energy judging and analyzing myself to death to figure out what was “wrong.”

Now I’ve learned the most productive way to use my energy when we feel low is to accept it. Allow it. Learn from it. And most importantly, to give myself even MORE love and understanding (not less).

We are cyclical beings and we’re always moving through cycles of energy. These cycles (like our spiraled DNA) spin us through collective programming and waves of creation that everyone feels (albeit, in our own timing)

When you’re empathic/highly sensitive, you feel these energies IN YOUR CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. It can affect absolutely everything about how you function.

Part of thriving as an empath is learning to accept these cycles and not falling victim to the belief that “something is wrong” when we don’t feel amazing.

The more present we are to how we feel and the more love and understanding we give to ourselves, the faster the cycles pass (and the DNA gets upgraded in the process).

Remember, we are not LINEAR. Time is not linear. We can experience cycles that repeat patters from thousands of years ago. It’s in our blood.

This is why, in order to THRIVE, we must get out of the performance based model of living. We are not here to earn or prove our worth.

Yes, growth and expansion is important to health, but the energy of “striving” is a resistant energy that causes a subtle war with our natural rhythms.

Any time we feel we are “fighting” against the natural flow of our energy, we are going against our health.

Acceptance of where we’re at is KEY. When we judge how we feel we restrict our energy field and stagnate our growth.

So often we get caught up in the “right and wrong” game. We’re obsessed with being “right” and therefore “good” (and therefore “worthy” of a good life) and the problem with this type of thinking is it sets us up for failure.

We fail because if we are “wrong” or “bad” or “not good enough” we unconsciously withhold love (life force) and therefore restrict our our growth (and health!).

If you only get ONE THING out of this “How to Make Love to Your Life” class, I hope it’s the power to quit overthinking, over analyzing, and judging yourself (and  your life).

Instead, BLESS the experience. Accept the experience. Feel the experience. Allow the experience. GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD AND INTO YOUR HEART.

The heart is the safest place to be in this transition. If we root ourselves in the mind, we might go insane.

The key to being the heart is to BLESS everything in our lives. This is an important energy because the energy of the lack matrix is about judgement (and all judgement is rooted in fear).

We withhold our love and understanding from anything we don’t deem “worthy” of being loved. We do this because we fear that if we love something that is “wrong” then we will be “wrong” (and therefore we won’t be worthy of love).

You see how the lack matrix works? It convinces us to withhold the very medicine the entire planet needs, because we are afraid there is not enough of it to give and therefore we create a deficiency by default.

I might sound like a broken record at this point but I don’t even care. The thinking patterns of the lack matrix are so prevalent that we must call out it’s BS over and over again. We must see how NONSENSICAL this way of thinking is so we can actually change it.

Take some time to examine your day-to-day life and ask yourself: “What area of my life am I experiencing the most resistance?”

What triggers you? Where do you experience the most anger and frustration with your reality? Get as specific as you can (example: my marriage, my job, my diet, my body, my relationships, politics, etc).

Then, make the commitment to BLESS this area of you life on a regular basis. Begin your day by tuning into how it would feel to be at peace with this area of your life.

Remember, where we are most in resistance is also where we are spending a tremendous amount of life force energy.

Resistance is EXPENSIVE!

As we begin to bless the areas our energy is caught in, we free up a lot of power and can use that energy in ways that actually give back to us (rather than drain us). Releasing resistance is powerful medicine.

Commit to at least 22 days of blessing (rather than trying to control) these areas of resistance and see what happens.

I’d love to hear your thoughts/feed back.

Much love and blessings to you during this Mercury Retrograde!
