“Sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don’t know why we are sad, so we say we aren’t sad but we really are.”
~ Mark Haddon,
“The way sadness works is one of the strange riddles of the world. If you are stricken with a great sadness, you may feel as if you have been set aflame, not only because of the enormous pain, but also because your sadness may spread over your life, like smoke from an enormous fire. You might find it difficult to see anything but your own sadness, the way smoke can cover a landscape so that all anyone can see is black. You may find that if someone pours water all over you, you are damp and distracted, but not cured of your sadness, the way a fire department can douse a fire but never recover what has been burnt down.”
~ Lemony Snicket,
I just wanted to reach out to you, in case any of you feel lost or melancholy or blue right now. If you feel you have been drained of enthusiasm or inspiration, when not long ago you were on fire with clarity and direction. If you are suddenly filled with doubt or despair. Or if you are loving or caring for someone who is in that space.
Please know that it will pass.
Please know that right now the Universe is contriving to create massive emotional and energetic shift. Much of what you are feeling is old emotion or thoughts that you pushed to the back of your mind and didn’t process or ‘feel’ at the time, and which are rippling through you now as they release and leave your vibrationary field.
Many transitory emotions will be passing through your headspace or heartspace. Old regrets or fears or shames. Things you haven’t thought about in years. Some of that may be so overwhelming to your conscious mind that you’ll feel either exhausted or numb for no apparent reason at all.
You may also feel like a bit of a train wreck and unhappy in your daily life without being able to point to specifics. You may end up fighting with loved ones over the stupidest of things, as you fall back into old patterns that don’t serve the person you’ve become.
All of this will pass. Your enthusiasm and energy will return. Clarity and direction will begin to emerge.
What’s needed right now is for you to be gentle with yourself and those around you. If you are in a negative headspace avoid making big decisions or working on projects that require attention and care. You are better off resting, or working on less important things. Wait until you are back in flow again before you tackle anything that is dear to you.
Don’t give up on your dreams, or put yourself into a position where you may self-sabotage.
You’ll feel a positive shift in the energies again by the end of this weekend. I know that for some of you this has been an intensely uncomfortable time. Take heart. Once you’ve retraced and released this old emotion you’ll be done with it. Remind yourself that you’re just going through a spring-cleaning of the soul.
I’m holding you all in my heart, and sending you extra love and support in my daily meditations.
You may also find it useful to go back and reread my post about the energies of July.
Hang in there. We’re almost out the other side.
Much love and gentle hugs, Nicole ❤ xx
