Chronicling my thoughts, one post at a time..

New eclipse, who dis?

I’ve been fascinated by eclipses and other cosmic events, especially in the recent past (say 3 years now).  I like reading about this stuff and believe that some movements of the planets millions of miles away has an effect on us.  Anything in the realm of mystical and magical intrigues me.  Perhaps a part of me still believes in it, despite everything life has shown me so far. And yes, its a part I protect most.

“A total eclipse of the sun belongs on everyone’s bucket list.” ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson

This solar eclipse, which sadly wasn’t visible in my side of the world, still feels like the cosmic event of the year (for me & maybe those who are seeking change).  For the last few years, I have noticed repetitive patterns, like I am waking up to the same day, meeting the same people, living in the same reality, often feeling stuck, and I remember telling friends on many occasions that I feel like my life is in a state of limbo.  But lately (about two months now) I feel like some major change is on the way (or maybe even here, after all everything is only a matter of a shift in perception), and while this would normally make me anxious, a part of me is relieved.

Do I only attribute this shift of perception to astrology – certainly not; but would I completely discount it – again, no.

I suppose only time will tell about whats coming next, but instead of dreading it, I am looking forward to it, and for some of us that is huge.

Whether you believe in the science behind such events or the magic, today will be a day which causes shifts, and effect a new beginning. So enjoy this moment and look forward to whats to come.

Whether astrology is science or magic, we’re open to most things, if they may be of benefit. ~ Ed.

Disenchanted

This is what happens when you let only your emotions write a post, and especially when some of my emotions can come in waves (and some like tsunamis) –

Have you ever been idealistic about life, the world and the universe, and then some after the passage of time (say a few decades), you sort of feel like the odds are always stacked against you? Or that the thoughts you once held dear, you now feel disenchanted by?

All these thoughts seem way more daunting when you believe in the law of attraction (always working) because you now are sending out less than the highest vibrations to the universe…

Which brings me to my next dilemma- if everything in our lives is what we have attracted into our being, does it mean, that even without realising it, we are emitting energies that do not serve us?

it’s a bit of an existential conundrum.. very counter-intuitive. So how to feel less disenchanted with everything??

The point is, sometimes no matter how rational, balanced or collected we are, our emotions get to us. For me, when I don’t adequately vent or release pent up energies, they build up, slowly and insidiously at first,until it gets to a point that at the smallest provocation (sometimes not even provocations at all), something snaps. My emotions take hold of me till it is all acknowledged and released, sometimes taking days when I walk around with the proverbial grey cloud over my head.

It feels like an unhealthy pattern to me, because the truth is, ideally we should never hold on to negativity, because it soon turns toxic and manifests in different forms, like lowered resistance towards allergies or common colds, stress pimples, etc. But Life is such that sometimes there isn’t enough time or enough energy left at the end of the day to do this work (I call it work because it is a deliberate thing), heck, some days I barely have enough energy to take off my makeup before I crash.

The point I am trying to make is that sometimes we are on the brink of exhaustion and we don’t even realise it, and it comes off looking like disenchantment.

So I deal with it the best way I know how – I write about it. Lets face it writing develops us as much as we develop it. It is powerful and insightful, and at times downright necessary.

Here’s to a Friday without too much upheavals.

CatchLight- Overcast

Leave a comment

Every time I see overcast skies, a Rod Stewart song comes into my mind. One of my favorite songs, which makes me feel hopeful, that dreary days might indeed be over.When I think of some of the things life has dealt for me, it surprises and amazes me the kind of resilience and sheer strength I’ve had at moments of truth. But its only recently that I realized that I don’t want that to be my narrative anymore. I won’t be defined by it anymore, because it no longer serves me. This is not to say that I am not proud of everything it has made me, but life has bigger better things ahead that what we have left behind, and the old narrative may not be relevant anymore.

When I realized this, it felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders.

Certain Aha moments sneak up on you, and leave the day changed beyond recognition. Those are my favorites.

Dreary days are over
Life’s a four leaf clover
Sessions of depressions are through
Every hope I longed for long ago, comes true

Peace & Love

Daily musings

Have you ever had one of those forgetful days when you were looking for your sunglasses all over the house and in the end realized it was on your head all along. I had one of those yesterday, I went about my day completely sure that I was forgetting something, and for the life of me, couldn’t figure out what it was.

THIS. This was what it was.

I had uploaded the photo from my phone, had the outline of what to write along-side the image, saved the draft, so I could write the post and post it from my Computer (because it is so much easier to edit posts on here), and completely forgot about it, and had that niggling feeling for the rest of the day.

Perhaps it happens sometimes when we don’t really bring our A-game to life. I am attributing it to the meds I’ve been on for this freakish bout of illness that I’ve been dealing with.

Feeling forgetful or hazy is not great, but once in a while, it is inevitable, I suppose. What do you do when this happens, let me know..

Peace & Love
