December 2018 Energy Insight
We have some important things ahead of us in the month of December that we will be moving through. The beginning of the month is rooted in the energy of generosity, protection, and service. Not surprising given that we’re all (hopefully) a little more focused on all the spirit of giving this time of year, but it also touches a drive to keep our family and those close to us safe by defending them when we feel they’re in harm's way.
Approach situations of this nature that arise with courage. Call on your ability to feel compassion toward others, especially any “offenders” you encounter. I always have to remind myself that (most of the time) the people who act out in hurtful ways are actually hurting the most.
As we move into the middle of the month, keep a close eye on your energy. If you’ve been thinking about doing some Reiki, as an example, now is a perfect time to do it. We’re in a spot where we’ll be susceptible to emotional exhaustion and neglecting our needs, so be sure you’re doing something to show yourself care and love. Don’t be a martyr.
Pay attention to relationships that are one-sided where you’re the only one giving. It’s a gift to give your energy to those who need it, but make sure you’re balanced in doing so.
The end of the month actually entails a space where we’re calling back in that energy we might have lost mid-month. How are your emotional and mental boundaries--firm or wavering? Don’t forget to keep your composure and stay centered. Take time for yourself to be alone. Get extra rest. Reflect on 2018. How can you better ground yourself? No idea what grounding is or how it can benefit you? Email me and I’ll give you some tools.
This has the potential to be a heavier month, and that’s OK. Conserve your energy, don’t spend too much time in the “what-ifs”, and remember: you are stronger than you think.
