Today's Inspiration: Shifting with the Tide



This comes at an interesting time as just last night I spent some time at the beach, felt the incredible urge to see the full moon over the ocean. Beren was sweet enough to indulge my desires, joined me there for a moonlight meal and a glass of wine. It was absolutely lovely, I simply can't get enough of la luna, and combined with the aria di mare...sigh...heavenly..

And, of course, more about change...with the new season comes other transitions as well. More about that another time...

Shifting With The Tide
Energetic Motion

Since our lives are constantly in motion energetically, change is a constant element of our existence. As dynamic as that energy is, it is not random or haphazard in nature—the shifts in energy that are constantly taking place are the result of our choices. The formulation of intention, a change in perspective, or the creation of a goal can transform our lives in blink of an eye. We think positive thoughts and the world becomes a brighter place. Or we decide who we want to be and become that person. With each passing moment, we are given innumerable opportunities to create change using nothing more than our awareness.

In the span of a single second, our lives can change immeasurably because energy moves at a pace more rapid than anything we can consciously fathom. Though we may not at first be sensitive to the vibrational shifts taking place, our choices are ultimately at the heart of these transformations. We can typically recognize the consequences of key decisions because we anticipated the resultant energetic shifts. But many, if not most, of the choices we make each day are a product of instantaneous reactions, and these still have a significant impact on the energy of our existence. It is for this reason that we should learn to wield what control we can over these shifts. If we bear in mind that all we think and all we do will shape the existence we know, we can deliberately direct the energetic motion of our lives.

Each day, you make an infinite array of decisions that cause energy shifts in the world around you. In many cases, these transitions are almost imperceptible, while in others the change that takes place is palpable not only to you but also to those in your sphere of influence. Your awareness of the immediate energetic consequences of your thoughts and actions can guide you as you endeavor to make the most of the autonomy that defines you as an individual. The myriad choices you make from moment to moment, however inconsequential they may seem, represent your personal power, which sanctions you to transform the energetic tide of your existence with nothing more than your will.

Rapunzel, I agree that the energy you carry with you precipitates change. I try to have a gentle, positive energy as often as possible for that reason.

I am eager to hear what changes the new season holds for you. I hope it is all good! hugs,

Being a Moon Maiden, I feel the shifting changes of the moon so distinctly and unmistakably.
While I do love my little comfort zone, I embrace change and welcome it willingly into my world, initiating a shift in the status quo on most occasions!!
There are many changes going on in your life at the moment, darling Rapunzel. I know it is often unsettling, but I hope the changes that are wrought fill you with joy, love and hope for the future.
That is my wish for you, at least, dear friend..
