With Mercury leaving retrograde, a lot of things have been shifting around lately. However, a few things might not feel quite right just yet. Perhaps things feel shaky, and unstable? Well that’s because this month’s energetic theme is instability.
Recently, MysticMamma published a few words of wisdom from the insightful Lena Stevens from The Power Path.com. Here’s what she has to say about the general message this instability is trying to reveal to us:
It is a chaotic month requiring flexibility, adaptability, thinking outside the box, patience and resetting our priorities.
“It is not going to get any ‘easier’ but we will get used to it and adapt to this new vibration that is part of our evolution.
“Old stable structures are loosening and breaking apart and new ones have not yet been solidified. It can be a very exciting and creative time if you don’t succumb to fear and stubbornness.
“The instability brings with it a variety of possibilities and potential for creating opportunities that would not otherwise be there.
“Instability is highly creative because nothing is set or solidified and you can mold and inform what it is that you want to manifest in ways that you can’t when things are stable and well defined.
“Of course, there is the element of chaos as structures become unstable. This can lead to too many options and much mental obsession and confusion.
“We are being asked this month to become more comfortable with chaos and to learn to trust the greater order of things. Even if we feel out of control we must trust that everything happens for a reason.
“Some of the stable structures that are crumbling are the mental ones.
“Our belief systems and how we hold our rational thoughts and how we process information is a structure that is becoming unstable as we go through this shift in consciousness.
“Think of the mind as a 2-dimensional processor that is being rewired to ‘think’ in multi-dimensional concepts.
“In order for this to happen the mind needs to let go of the 2-dimensional processor, the linear thinking of the ‘rational’ mind and allow this multi-dimensional experience to imprint a new way of ‘thinking’. It is the realm of the higher intellectual center and gives us a new experience of ‘truth’.
“Needless to say, we all will feel a bit mentally unstable this month and prone to the experience of ‘losing our minds’. Our memories may be compromised and if we don’t write a list, we may quickly forget why we went to the market and what for.
“Instead of going into a panic, use this instability to be more creative, to ‘think’ outside the box, to allow for solutions to seemingly unsolvable issues to suddenly appear.
“Instability can be a wonderful thing as long as you work with it instead of resisting it.
Lena continues to discuss how these energies will affect our relationships:
“Relationships will certainly go through a hard time this month as instability always affects them first. This is where the trust of the heart comes in.
“If you know intuitively to move towards or away from certain relationships, your task is to follow that intuition and intelligence of your heart.
“Old promises and commitments based on a mental understanding of responsibility may be up for review. Not all relationships will survive.
“If you are the one moving away, do so with compassion and confidence but not guilt. A clean and sudden break is always better than a slow death even though it may be shocking at first.
“It is better to be in full chaos for a little while than in sort of chaos for a long time.
“This is also a great month to complete karma with old relationships, forgive the past, take risks in new relationships and completely destabilize your life in the relationship arena if that is what it takes to move things forward.
“This is not a month to stagnate. So, get things moving in all relationships: work mates, both intimate and business partners, family members, support people, friends and community.
And finally, Lena covers the topic of health and how we can pay more attention to our physical bodies and mental health:
“The big issues and challenges this month will be bones, teeth, skin, joints, brain activity, balance and memory. Mental and emotional health will also be challenged as we deal with instability on all levels of the physical, mental and emotional bodies.
“The task is to stay out of fear and see that many of these symptoms are a result of unstable energy rather than an actual physiological condition.
“This is a good month to do a detox of some kind. We are all receptacles of old energy that needs to be cleaned out once in a while.
“Detoxify your mind by a fast from media and news, negative thoughts and judgments, and too much thinking.
“Detoxify your emotions by staying away from disturbing situations and toxic people. Fill yourself instead with emotional beauty of music and art.
“Detoxify your body through a fast of some kind and drink plenty of water. A detox will destabilize your system for a while but give you an opportunity to re-stabilize it with a new and higher vibration of cleaner energy in all forms.”
