|We are in the home stretch of Mercury retrograde. It goes direct on Saturday (July 20th), although we will still feel it’s effects for another week or so afterwards.
As I mentioned last week, I am taking advantage of the energy of this happening to clear away items on my WAY OVERDUE list. I’m tackling the really difficult things, some of which have been left undone for years because it seems easier to avoid the emotionally charged tasks than actually facing them.
A lot of them are related to my divorce 5 years ago this month or the difficult time period following it when I got behind on everything. In fact, I’ve been on this journey to clear up the WAY OVERDUE list since December, and I am super close to the finish line with this Mercury retrograde.
Each time I pull out the to-do list, I take a deep breath, stop thinking and just pick up the phone to handle each task. Thank you Jennifer Carey for that tip! The first time was hardest, and then it started to get easier with each call, even if the topic was extra emotionally charged. Every task brought me a piece of closure and brought more of my energy back into the present moment. Each thing I cross off the list is correlated with an increase in joy and lightness.
With each step, the momentum picks up and I’m ready to see this list through to the end. It’s starting to feel really good inside my heart instead of the dread and ickiness that I used to feel about facing these things.
The joy and lightness this work has generated has been palpable. More than one person this week has asked me what’s different – is it new hairstyle or clothes or colors or ??? And I tell them that this joyfulness is agreeing with me.
What in your life has been avoided and is undone and weighing on you? I encourage you to take a deep breath, don’t think about it and just do it. The difference you will feel is worth so much more than the initial ick and anxiety that kicks up. Join me these final days of Mercury retrograde in asking myself what else is unfinished? And then finishing it. Give yourself the gift of closure and relief.
If you’re feeling really stuck, raw or heavy, I can help you reconnect with your center, your courage and your motivation with a Reiki session. Let’s get you back to a place where you feel at ease with your body and your process. I’m offering these 75 minute sessions for $70, or 45 minutes for $45 but if you are a Reiki or energy healing student or practitioner of any level or practice, there is a special price for you. Just let me know when you schedule your appointment, so you can get the energy worker rate. Call 978-338-4326 or email meto schedule an appointment. Find out more on my website here.
