As the whirlwind of transformation continues around and within us all, it's a timely reminder to take time to stop, revive and thrive...or if you can't do thrive right now, then at least survive!
As the high frequency energy increases, our sensitivity increases. We feel our own feelings and those of other people's more acutely, we feel solar activity, we feel events that are occurring on the other side of the planet. Some days it feels like your hand is stuck in an electrical socket, while other days you just want to hide under a blanket and say wake me when it's over. It is important to connect with our own personal 'eye of the storm' within...that quiet, clear, still place where we can just detach from the chaos, stress and hectic-ness around us.
Everyone has their own different way of doing this. For me, I'm not one who has ever been able to stick to a meditation routine for long, but I've been receiving the message to make time for a little meditation time every day, even just for a few minutes a day where I do nothing more than focus on my breath. For you, it may be something else you are receiving the message to do more of...or less of. One thing I know: when your body and soul start talking to you loudly it is past the deadline to start paying attention!
So, if your body and soul are saying to you, as mine are at the moment: stop, slow down, breathe....I encourage you to do that in whatever way is possible. This week, Jax and I skipped his swimming class, and I didn't do my workouts as usual, and I feel so much better for just allowing us that time out of the usual go go go schedule!
Stop. Revive. Thrive.

Q from Kathy: 'How' do we move forward when we have felt in limbo or in a void?
My reply: I've found that the 'how' comes from listening to those very persistent little taps and nudges that we keep shrugging off. We often ignore them because we think 'I don't have enough time for that' or 'how on earth is that going to help me with my situation or question?' when the little tap seems to have nothing to do with our specific concern.
In my experience, if something is persistent then it is like a Hansel and Gretel cookie crumb, saying "this way this way." We often aren't shown the whole big picture of how to get somewhere but usually, if we ask, we receive some sort of nudge as to a step forward...the tricky thing is it may not seem directly related and that's where we stop ourselves from acting.
For example, if you keep getting a nudge to clear a certain room, it may not look like it has anything to do with your question around: "what is my purpose?"...but that clearing, will lead to new space and new energy and usually leads to some sort of mental or emotional aha moment. Or you'll hear about something constantly, a certain vitamin or a book or a word.
Your body/soul/life/the universe is constantly speaking to you. Learning to pay attention, to listen, to trust and to take action on our inner nudges is a tool we all have. Although, sometimes it has to bang us on the head for us to notice it!
