15 May The week ahead: May 15th through May 21st:
This is the last week of Taurus season, so pay close attention this week to what your body is telling you. Taurus is an earthly, sensual sign that likes real tangible things in front of them they can count on; people and material objects (like money in the bank and good investments) help to make this sign feel safe and secure, which is the basis for all they do. Methodical, grounded, planned steps forward is what this sign is known for too, so do yourself a favor this week and have a plan of action in place so when the things you’ve been working for start to pay off, you’re already ready for the next level.
So how can we use the energy of this week to help us? My advice is this: How can you pay better attention to your body so that you’re the first to know when something is off, and what are the physical indicators your body uses to “alert” you? Are you a head, heart, or gut person (I’ll explain below)? When the going gets tough, do you rise to the occasion or do you run, and how can you start to stand up to and work with the scary or difficult things that show up in your life? So I’ve got big news this week lovelies! We’re moving to Portland , OR. That’s right! And I’m taking you guys with me 🙂 Let me assure you that I’m scared shitless but so excited, too. I have no idea what to expect, but I do know that I’m ready for this new adventure, whatever it may bring. All last week (since we officially found out) I’ve been having a hard time breathing and my chest and heart feel like they’re going to explode. My stomach has been in knots and I’ve had a very difficult time concentrating or being present. This isn’t my normal energy, usually just one of those places goes off on a tangent for me, but since we received the green light that we’re moving, my whole body has been all over the place. I finally decided to tap in the other day since everything that normally works to calm me down hasn’t been doing anything. I went into meditation, asking myself what my body was trying to say, then , I just sat and listened. My heart and my gut feel like there are butterflies in there with air of excitement, and I gotta say, it feels like butterflies in my head, too. When I asked myself if this was a good thing, my whole being lit up with goosebumps, which is my sign from Spirit when I’m channeling messages that I’m on point. I have a theory that I can’t prove, but I solidly believe that we all have psychic gifts to some extent (yes, ALL of us) and that physically we receive guidance through 3 different places on our body: the head, the heart, or the gut—if you’ve been to any of my gallery readings, you’ve heard me prattle on about this in detail. Some people can have a combo of all 3, a combo of two, or just one place. It helps you to know what those places are for yourself, so when the going gets weird, exciting, or even tough, you know how to ground yourself and what to pay attention to so you can follow your own guidance. A good rule of thumb: if you feel the butterflies and you’re intrigued/excited, you should definitely pursue this. If you feel butterflies or excitement, but it also feels like you have a heaviness or weighed down feeling, you should probably not follow this or reassess what this thing is really asking of you. I KNOW in my soul and in my body that we’re making the right choice here, and I’m choosing to follow my guidance by taking this massive leap of faith to see what new adventures await on the horizon. I promise you guys that the weeklies will continue and I want to thank you from my heart for being on this wild journey with me. This week, pay close attention to what your body is telling you. You’re trying to lead yourself on your next big adventure <3
Go ahead and pick a card from above (pick one, two, or all three cards–pick what you’re drawn to). The stone you see int he picture above is Lodolite. Lodolite is a type of included quartz crystal with inclusions of many possible colors and types, often having the look of gardens, landscapes, or underwater scenes. Thus, lodolite is often called garden quartz, landscape quartz, or scenic quartz. It’s often used in meditation practices. Another metaphysical use of lodolite is to bring energies to effect manifestation of one’s desires. Lodolite is also said to enhance communication with beings on the spiritual plane and heighten one’s spiritual energies. It is used mystically to increase ESP and bring knowledge from your past lives. Lodolite is said to bring loving energies and energies of gentle strength. Mystically and in crystal healing, lodolite is purported to be an excellent healing stone bringing strong healing energies and energetic shifting so that healing will occur. Note that healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing and are not prescriptions or healthcare information. Lodolite is associated primarily with the crown chakra. If you’d like to learn more about this stone, please go here.
If you chose card #1: Your message this week is about the Nine of Crystals. Your card goes on to say that this is a wonderful card, the Nine of Crystals represents the combination of all your efforts and hard work. You have learned an abundance of knowledge along the way, which has led to your heightened state of spiritual awareness. Through the exploration and manifestation of your dreams, you have found your place within the Universe and are radiating loving energy. You can now look to the next stage of your life with a new and fresh perspective. Perhaps you will want to spend more time in Nature or with the people you love–perhaps you will take a more spiritual route in you’re learning. You are aware of the larger scope of your being and are ready to move on to the next phase of enlightenment. A time to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Additional Meanings: Retreat • Stability • Sensuality • Comfort • Accomplishment • Spiritual growth.
My hope for you this week is that you really take time to listen to what your body is saying. It could be as simple as you need more water in your thirsty life, or as deep as you NEED to take a leap of faith, NOW. Whatever is a going on for you, just trust yourself. The more you tap in and trust, the stronger your guidance system will get, and that’s only a good thing.
This is your week! Make it an amazing one 🙂
