Reposting from a good friend, you guys feel something’s going (or been going awry) since mid July…take a deep breath as you may feel off-centered in many ways til September:
Mercury in Retrograde (Aug 2 to 26, 2011)
What To Expect & Keys To Dealing With These Dynamic Energies according to Elizabeth Jones:
It is quite likely that you will experience some of the more challenging or difficult aspects of this influence. So I have listed here some things that you may experience are during this time:
** You may feel ungrounded and off center.
** You may feel spacey, disoriented and even confused or dizzy at times.
** If you are “ultra sensitive” to your surroundings you may pick up on others fear, confusion, etc. Be sure to clear your space often! (Taking a shower while visualizing any toxic or negative or draining energy leaving your physical, emotional, mental and etheric bodies is a simple, effective way to do this. ** And call on Archangel Michael if you feel you need extra protection or buffering.)
** The “veils are thin” between the realms. As a result you may sense things that you don’t ordinarily. ** This may be through your vision, hearing or even impressions. Please know that just because you are “picking something up” does not mean it is accurate or real. Ask that the frequency be raised. Then “check out” again what you are perceiving. OR sleep on it, certainly before you take action based on a hunch. This said . . .
** Intuition will be stronger for many, so it would be good to include these insights into your decision-making process. In fact, your intuition may be more accurate than your logic-reasoning mind.
** Your imagination may be hyper-active now. Keep in mind this may not always be a positive thing. Don’t let it take you in uncomfortable directions!
Here are some both practical and spiritual ideas that will help you to deal with the above as well as ways to raise the frequencies of this influence:
*** Clean and clear off the clutter from your work space, altar or meditation space. This clears the way for you to receive undistorted messages, healing, insights and guidance from your higher realms that is less likely to be distorted or unclear.
*** Adopt the mindset that there is a spiritual aspect to everything that is going on and especially to what is occurring before you in this moment.
*** Ask for clarity and guidance about what that is.
*** Do pay attention to details, just don’t get lost there.
*** Get extra rest as the physical body will most likely not have as much energy as usual.
*** Pay careful attention to what is on your mind when you awake as it is certainly possible that you have a message waiting for you!
** Look for the mystical in everything as it may be most apparent if you really see what is right before and around you.
*** Reconnect with your vision! Find ways to get inspired! Do a vision board, read or listen to those things that inspire you, channel a message to yourself from your Soul. During this time the mind is more open that usual to being enlightened, illuminated and inspired.
*** Visualize what you know is a higher expression of your own Divine self. Hold that vision in your mind’s eye for a few minutes each day.
Sending you many blessings of Grace and Light during this most dynamic time
