I’ve been really busy. Considering David is away and that usually means life is a little easier, I’ve woken up today feeling like I’ve been overdoing it! Some of it is definitely self-inflicted: I’ve gone to bed a little later then woken up a little earlier; spent time dabbling with Oracle Cards and exploring meanings; compromising my ‘down time’ to look after others; and doing the ‘mum’ thing ~ staying up late to talk to Josh about his first day of observing at school. I look forward to going to my bed, reading my book (very titillating!) and enJOYing the peace of a room to myself. But, I read for longer and sleep less.
Today, I realised that despite my best intentions, I had not given my Medicine Wheel One Year Journey Theme for the Month an airing. Oops! I kind of had a vague notion that it was Gratitude or Wisdom so wasn’t overly concerned. But, a gift awaited me! This month’s theme is JOY!
I think that was better than my morning coffee as a ‘heart starter’!
But … as I have noticed, this time around, the messages are not necessarily what they seem. So, I curbed my “JOY” a little and and took out the Gateway Oracle Cards to find my theme for this week, August 1-7 … BREAKING BARRIERS.
Knew it wasn’t going to be straight forward.
However, it is in keeping with where my thoughts and energies have been drifting over the last couple of days. My path, this week, is to focus on what I have set in place to hold myself back, those limitations which we all have that allow (force?) us to behave in a particular way and not push through them. My frustration levels have been rising (a sign that change is afoot) and my intolerance of others because they are not ‘stepping up’ is higher than usual.
Now, I know why. This is my way of Breaking Barriers. What really is important to me? What is it that I want, going forward? What signs have been presenting themselves and what do they mean?
Denise Linn’s affirmation, for Breaking Barriers, is “I am expanding beyond limitations into joy and freedom!”
