Growth, Change and Patience!
Yes it has been a while since I have sat down and wrote a blog for you all, life sure can get busy and mine is no exception to that. I have recently also taken time to smell the roses if you will, to get back out there into nature and find another way to connect with this journey of life that we are on.
I went ahead and planted some seeds for sunflowers, daisies, tomatoes, strawberries and blackberries. As I now watch them grow, I thought back to times in the past where I have tried to grow something and it would inevitably die and I wondered why did that always happen?
Each day the kids would run outside to see if anything was peeping through the clay and feel disappointed when they could not see any signs of life. They would say, when are they going to grow? How much longer will it take?
Then of course there was the excitement when they saw those first buds appearing and even more when they can now see the flowers almost all the way grown.
Yes everything we planted is all still alive, yay!! So what did I do different this time from all the other times? I ensured that I watered the plants when they needed it, took time to put stakes on the ones that needed extra strength and lastly I have the patience to allow them to grow!
Truth is of course, each one of them takes a different amount of time to grow but you must keep them nourished.
Does this sound like a familiar story to you? Do you know the moral of this story?
Time To Learn
Learning a new way of thinking and doing things is essential when you are a Twin Flame as it is a whole new way of life. Those conditioned beliefs that you grow up with need to be shed in order for you to move forward. When you hold onto those old ways, you are stunting your growth and for sure stalling your union.
Sometimes we can not see the hard work that is going on under the surface. We feel disappointed because there is no change, but change takes time, growth takes time.
Do you find yourself comparing your journey to others, if yes STOP, this is a pointless exercise as all of us grow emotionally at our own pace. Our Twin Flame journey’s while they may seem the same on the surface, each one is very different. Different levels of growth is more common than many realize and they do not all fit in the same box.
Patience is key, without patience you will not get very far on your journey.
When many of us get caught up in the hows, the why and why not, you can forget to care for yourself so nourish your soul ~ Take care of you!
Give strength to other Twin Flames who are having a hard time, allow yourself to grow in strength and you will begin to see things change for the better.
Expecting change and growth without putting in some work is like planting a seed and not treating it right so it can come into full bloom.
All of the above are essential when you are a Twin Flame. Makes sense right?
Do You Communicate The Right Way?
On my travels over the past few weeks, I noted something that made me feel very sad. We were waiting outside a restaurant for a table to become free, when a family of 6 arrived and asked about how long the wait is etc, they were told it would be 30 to 40 minutes and they said that they would wait. The first thing I noticed about this family was they had tablets, phones and computer games with them. They all proceeded to go on them while waiting for their food, not so bad I know some will say but then they were called for their table and from ordering to the food arriving they did not take their eyes off of their electronics.
Of course at this point I was thinking surely now they will talk to each other, acknowledge that they are all sitting together and have a conversation but no, food arrived, none of them looked up to thank their waitress for her help.
Is the true art of communication really lost, is this why people do not know how to communicate with each other any longer? To sit down and have a conversation with someone, to look them in the eye when you talk to them, to pick up on their feelings?
Something for you to think about and to try and implement change in your life?
Do you spend your day looking at your phone to see if your Twin Flame has contacted you and forget to interact with others because you are so consumed by your Twin Flame? That is not nourishing your soul!
Read on if you wish to know what to expect for the rest of this beautiful month of July. Will you promote growth this month or will you expect change without doing any work to get to where you need and want to be.
This month you can very much so look forward to change but this change is going to come in time of chaos so if you do not slow down you may even miss it. It’s like a beacon to say Whoa hold up here a minute, stop doing what you’re doing and try a different approach because what you’re doing isn’t working. Or it is time to look at what isn’t working and make a decision to go another route. And all while it is up in your face. The chaos of everyday life that is. Secondly with this energy you need to have a willingness to be adaptable and step or “colour” outside the lines for a while. Stop playing by all the rules! Sometimes that is what keeps us in the same patterns. Remember to look outside that box and your comfort zone.
It is also about the spirit, our spiritual nature and that of seeking that connection with not only your higher spiritual self but that of the higher spiritual energies. It’s about discovering hidden truths. This feels to me like it’s time to question which hidden truths are the ones which resonate with you and which do not. Meaning don’t just jump on the belief bandwagon because it’s supposedly what everyone else seems to believe or follow.
There is a call for all leader Twin Flames this month to create your path, your connection and however you choose to do it you require no one else’s approval.
July Moon Energy
Moon phases for July
There are always 4 moon phases this month. July 2nd is the New Moon, July 9th is the First Quarter , July 16th is the Full Moon and July 24/25th is the Third or Last Quarter.
So how do these moon phases affect we humans on the planet? And what do you need to be aware of? As today is the 12th of July I am only going to cover the full moon and the last quarter.
In many paths of spirituality the moon is considered a feminine energy and feminine energy tends to lean more toward emotions and dreams and so forth connected to the soul.
The Full Moon - on July 16th- j the energy each month at this time is about completion of things, bringing things full circle so that either you head off in a new direction on the path to getting where you wish to be, or you release that baggage of what is holding you back so that you can carry on from where you are and not letting it keep you from getting there. It’s a good time to reflect on where you’ve come from the last full moon, what you’ve accomplished, what you see are the next steps, and what may have held you back from completing the things you desired.
You may find it harder to sleep, melatonin levels can be affected during the full moon so be sure to get good quality sleep leading up to the full moon. This lack of sleep could lead to erratic emotions and thoughts that could create things that you don’t want to have happen. So be aware and practice good self care- eat well, exercise, drink water and get quality sleep - naps count!
Third or Last Quarter is on July 24/ 25th this is when the energy begins to wane, like the moon its light is dimming, so therefore time to begin a period of reflection, respite and reorganizing our plans, goals and taking time for some “me” time. I don’t just mean physical care I mean emotional care too. What habits, people and so forth are no longer fitting in with where you’re going? Is it time to drop some of that social media? - no I do not mean deleting accounts but finding time away from that phone and computer and doing something else that is more helpful to building you up, not tearing you down. Studies have shown social media doesn’t really make us happy a lot of the time and messes with our emotional state so if you have to get rid of some online friends, quit some groups or whatever do it for your own well being. You can still have some interaction but if things there aren’t benefiting you why do it?
