So not only is Mars in retrograde (google that one instead of the climbing numbers of the coco virus please), but people are walking around on the Earth plain masked up, businesses are closing, schools are being literally terrorized on an energetic level by the coco and fear, the price of groceries has tripled AND the summer is slowly fading in to Fall.
When life was “normal” and everyone was involved in their professional life, sports, recreational activities and hobbies life was hectic enough but NOW.. NOW we have to manage the energies of everyone in our household…all the time..IN our household..and news flash..so do you?
How have you been coping? What have you been doing? Other than the external environment what has changed for you?
At first, I admit, I went a little neurotic, bleaching my house on my hands and knees twice a day. I made the kids wash their hands every moment possible and wouldn’t let them leave the house. As I got into the swing of things last Marchish, we ventured outside, went for walks, STOPPED bleaching the house so I didn’t kill our immune systems, explored Alberta, and found our professional lives could continue from home as could our educational systems. We stopped going out for dinner ALL.THE.TIME and we started to cook more at home. We stopped going to the gym ALL.THE.TIME and started practicing meditation and yoga more inside the comfort of our own home. We traded in our money for dinners and I started a minor plant addiction (and realized I had a green thumb like my Grammie after all) and our purchases for material things like shoes and jewellery transitioned into more literature and things to provide a calming and educational space at home.
Our playroom has NEVER been so organized (organized in true Montessori style) with the children’s play baskets free for them to get their items and return them after play time. Their crafts easily accessible and their craft table always waiting for some more fun with them. The older children have taken more of an interest in teaching the younger children and everyone appears to pray more and pray together, in the form of mediation, prayer and yoga with Mama in the morning. Our living space was revamped and about 25 Boxes of “old stuff” was regurgitated from our house emptying our space.
In this time, our energies have all been noticed, appreciated and have formed this invisible thread from one another. Yes some days are absolutely bonkers with the energy of a1.5 year old transferring to a 2.5 year old then to a 6 year old who is the captain of our play ship but the energies have also found a balance within our space and there is something beautifully said about that process. We all have found our niche within the home and how we compliment each other. I have opted to homeschool after years of teaching as I am at home for the not so obvious reasons of recovery and that in itself is a blessing. Forest school couldn’t’ be any cooler!!! We have set a time in the day where we homeschool and the other littles do their crafts, have iPad time and free play. We all eat breakfast together in the morning and get to talk about our day. In the afternoon we get to go outside or visit with dear friends who live close.
We still wash our hands more and are a bit more conscious due to other people and we sure miss “traveling” but at the same time, our focus has become so much more on family and togetherness and connectedness that this transition in the earth can only be looked as one of a historical nature.
During this time I was able to dive into who I really am. Who are you? Ask yourself that? You’re not just a name, you are not just a role. You are not defined by your past experiences…so truly..who are you? This is a question that formed a period of growth within me I never thought possible. It recognized ego, became friends with ego and then it sat ego on a different realm and “I found “self”, I found “spirit” and that is when the magic inside me started to happen.
So as you sit at home with your tea, water, wine…or espresso…or espresso mixed with liquor ..whatever you may be doing lol.. ask yourself.. who am I? Journal this. Reflect on this. Step outside a place of judgement because we are all on a different journey and every journey is beautiful in itself and destined for growth and change. But please, ask yourself this very important question because during this time, going inward is going to define how you transition out of this season…
I love you.
