We can start fresh in this very moment, not needing to wait for a new day to start anew.
When today is not going well, it is tempting to focus on tomorrow as a blank slate with all the possibilities that newness provides. It is true that tomorrow will be a brand-new day, but we do not have to wait until tomorrow to start fresh. We can start fresh at any moment, clearing our energy field of any negativity that has accumulated, and call this very moment the beginning of our brand-new day.
It’s been almost three weeks that Mercury has been in retrograde, finally on Sunday, it will be gone.
Three weeks of emotional rollercoasters. Feeling tired, even a sense of loss, not knowing what to do, being upset because things are not working or being restless for an answer that we have been looking at for a while… The Beauty of Mercury is to offer us that period of three weeks to just contemplate and check with our life, what does work? What does not? What serves? What does not? What we want to do? How we want to feel?
But, in that century, there is no time to rest, we are in a constant rush, always getting the new thing, the new guy, the new girl, the new million, the new opportunity, we forget to breathe, we forget to love, we forget to be. Our body does not, constantly in anxiety / stress mode… Hoping for the next vacation… It won’t happen because even on vacation, we don’t humanly connect anymore, we just want to post the best selfie on Instagram Story and show that we eat pineapple in Saint Maurice!
So, today, as crazy it may sound, Thank you Mercury. I tried to be resistant to your energy but after a few days of turmoil, I surrendered to your teaching and this is why….
Today was beautiful in New York.
And, guess what? I took a day off! At least, one thing great about being an entrepreneur.
I went to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and I spent half of my day there, contemplating nature, meditating, walking, reading and being.
I did not check my phone until I went back home. It felt so great. I was in complete communion with nature and my needs of the moment.
I just wanted to feel at peace and restore my mind, body and spirit and this is exactly what I received.
When we are aligned with our own truth, when we pay attention to our intuition and what need, life opens its doors to the fullest.
I will do my best to keep this in mind…
Don’t wait for your vacation to enjoy Life. Life happens NOW.
