“Let me weigh the matter carefully and
Slowly sift results
To even out the balance of the sea
When everything’s in harmony
Then everyone can finally be free”
Divination Message: All Will Become Balanced
“Lately you have had your share of ups and downs. There have been many instances of confusion and times when you have felt pulled in several directions at once. External stressors have been wreaking havoc – everything from unpredictable weather to unstable relationships can have a big impact on our emotional outlook. Fear not, my friend, for it will not be long before your life and body regain their natural sense of harmony and balance. You may need to reevaluate those aspects of your life that are giving you the most trouble and try setting some appropriate boundaries. If someone is taking too much of your time and energy, it is all right to limit their presence and influence. Look to the near future and breathe a deep sigh of relief. Once again you will feel calm, clear headed and motivated to live life to the fullest.”
Antithesis/Challenger: The Scales Will Soon Tip: “Life can be quite the juggling act and until quite recently you have kept it in equilibrium. Now things are coming at you at a frenetic pace and soon you will feel overwhelmed. You may need to put some activities on the back burner while you concentrate on pressing demands, even if doing so leaves you feeling imbalanced.”*

Yesterday’s message was one of water, the waters of the Earth. Today’s message is a metaphor for our own waters; which are our emotions. Are you feeling off kilter? Overwhelmed and stressed out? More emotional lately due to extra demands on your time, obligations, responsibilities? Are you feeling stretched in too many directions and like you have very little to give back to yourself at this point in time? It may be time to set some new boundaries; ones to protect your well being, and keep you sane!
When we say yes, yes, yes to everything that everyone expects and demands of us, it can leave very little left for ourselves. Believe me, I know. Usually the things that you cherish, such as yoga, meditation, alone time or your hobbies and passions are the first thing to go as you care take for everyone else! Add a job, children, a household, pets to care for, and social obligations, and you really leave yourself no time to breathe. That needs to change, and right now!
Listen closely to the whispers of your heart. What do you yearn for? More time outside? A weekend off? To attend a workshop or class? A night out with good friends? What would give you a much needed break and boost your spirits? You have put in so much effort for everyone else, you deserve a treat! Pick a day or evening and dedicate it to you. It could be as simple as a candle lit bath, a yoga class or a walk in the forest or on the beach…. or it could be a trip to the spa, time with friends or a dinner out. If you can swing it, go to Mexico for a week!! (sigh… I wish!!!)
Take a few minutes right now to book it, and stick to your guns. You will be a better person for it! And while you are at it? I want you to say NO to something that you feel obligated to… something that you have said yes to that will leave you feeling resentful and empty. Cancel it, pronto!… (you’re welcome ;0)
