The Reset

Mercury, Jupiter, Uranus, Pluto, Neptune, Saturn, and Chiron are all in retrograde right now. I know y’ all feeling it because baby these planets playing no games with me. For those who don’t believe in the planets being in alignment with us, these are that “something in the air” claims we make.

I and so many around me have been dealing with old wounds, new challenges, uncomfortable growth, and looking in the mirror. When faced with storms at times, it can get heavy. The idea is to push through because there are guaranteed blessings on the other side. These planets being in retrograde, forced us to face some deeply rooted issues.

“The hurt that lurks in the shadows of our mind and speaks to us in the middle of the night.” – Alexandra Joli

Since my birthday, I began to experience some issues that I thought I conquered. Just being real; healing isn’t always a one-time thing. Some traumas and hurt can linger, especially if you are still living in the thick of it all. I was triggered and was forced to deal with it up close and personal. It probably would have been easier to ignore it and suppress it again. But as I stated in my previous blog; you repeat the hurt you need to heal. I’ve made many mistakes in this life, and a lot of them has landed me in a place of pain, shame, and guilt. Instead of succumbing to those feelings, I worked through them; and faced them head-on. Let’s call it a rebirth if you will.

I told a friend of mine recently; the reset button on life is your mind. Reset your brain to thinking positively and be the change you want to see. And BOOM, RE-DO! Of course, I wish it was that easy, but take it one day at a time, be gentle with yourself, and move forward. You are not what you’ve experienced in the past, nor are you the person people believe you to be. You are who you and God says who you are.

Now that August first is two days away. We are walking into a season of newness. Here’s to a new attitude, new outlook, and new blessings that we can now nurture; if you did the work. And know, there is still time to do the work and reap the benefits.

“Its time to breathe again.”

Jolie’s I will leave you with this. Get real with yourself and elevate. We all have skeletons in our closet, old wounds that were never healed, and things about ourselves that aren’t pretty. Once we are honest with ourselves, we clean it up to become better. I love you.

    I can definitely relate to this. The retrograde effected me, but it also pushed me and brought out something great. I love what you said about hitting the reset button with your mind. I tell people that all the time , just in my own words.
