Sometimes life just feels like a mountain of work – energetically, mentally, emotionally. Maybe you feel like there is a lot of dead weight standing between you the freedom you truly desire. How can you skirt around all of these obstacles?
You might be the type of person who takes on responsibility a little too easily. You might take on other people’s work, as well as other people’s energetic burden. This is not your weight to carry. How can you set yourself free? Would a little of your own personal magic help? Could you create a bonfire in your backyard and write a list with some of the dead weight you are carrying on it and simply burn it? Release the burden to the universe? Release yourself of the responsibility of trying to please the people who are not easily pleased? You can’t please everyone, nor should you try.
At this time, it might be important for you to show up as yourself, even if conflict is created when you put your foot down and say you’ve had enough. This might be an important lesson for the people in your life. It might be an important lesson for you. Where in your life are you overly giving? When you create boundaries with your time and energy, how do people take it? This is an important observation. Not all conflict is bad, sometimes conflict is necessary to clear out some of that dead weight. And you know what you get in return? Freedom. You will become lighter and happier by leaving that burden in the past. Move forward knowing you are exactly where you are suppose to be.
You are being led away from stagnant energy in favor of claiming some time for yourself, your dreams and your wishes. Where are you being guided? Not all goodbyes are a bad thing, sometimes they are necessary stage in your personal growth. When you look up you see things some folks will never be able to see. Take what you learn and move forward with peace and acceptance in your heart space. Do no wish ill on anyone around you, including yourself. Be free. Saying goodbye to a relationship or friendship of longstanding is never easy work, but sometimes it’s necessary to leave relationships that have become stagnant, draining, or negative. Don’t feel obligated to do anyone else’s work for them. You know where to go and what to do. When you walk away you reclaim a part of yourself. If you choose to stay you get stuck. Release yourself from obligation, worry or judgement. Your intuitive guides will not lead you astray.
When you decide to establish boundaries, it’s not always a personal attack on someone’s character. You might have allowed some poor behavior to occur for some time, but now, you have had enough of it and you get to decide. What do you want to feel energetically, emotionally, or spiritually? Who belongs in your space? You don’t need to tolerate experiences that leave you feeling exhausted, drained, or depleted. The energetic vampire is not always aware of their power to drain others. But some energetic vampires do know they have the power to drain and they know they have the power to project their own emotions and to manipulate what you feel if you have not put the appropriate boundaries in place. This has been a topic of discussion in some form for a while now. I know many of my readers are empathic, and a lot of the work for an empath is with protection, creating energetic boundaries and simply clearing the emotion gunk you pick up from others. Not everyone in your sphere is ethical or appropriate when it comes to your boundaries. I feel there really isn’t enough written about the ethics of energetic manipulation. Did you give your consent? No? Then why does this person get so much access to you or your world? Sometimes when we have a difficult time creating the necessary space, Lady Justice steps in to clear the space for us and she does so without regard to feelings. Justice can be a liberating force and even if it feels uncomfortable for something to be taken away from you or for your world to shift or change. Justice is in the business of creating balance. The message is: What is changing needed to be changed. Karma (Justice) is doing her work and she is clearing your energy field for you. The lessons from the past couple of years have strengthened your boundaries and now you know, you know from experience. It took a long time for this balance to be created, but now you get yourself back and as you reflect on the past couple of years, you know that you needed to learn this about others and yourself. This ending, this change, this shift will give you the strength you need to live your life the way you want to live it. No one has control of your free will but you. You were never comfortable with your free will be taken away. You never gave your consent for your power to be claimed as someone else’s prize. Moving forward, you know you did the right thing. You can learn from your mistakes. You now know that you don’t need to keep making the mistake of allowing people who are not a good match for your sensitive world access to it.
