Every year on my birthday, I turn to my journal to receive guidance and wisdom for the year ahead. (I do this a lot of other times, too, but I'm always curious to see what messages arise on my birthday. Today, my birthday, I looked back on what I wrote to myself a year ago, and I couldn't believe how true it was. When people ask me how to receive messages, I always recommend automatic writing. I believe that automatic writing allows you to channel wisdom and guidance that you need for your own soul's path. Today, I'm sharing the messages I received a year ago that came true in more ways than I could imagine:
We are helping you become more in tune with your body, mind, and soul. As you do so, and come more into alignment, your energy will infuse all that you do. There will be more peace in your soul, more joy in your life. Right now you're feeling as if the weight of the world is on your shoulders [I was dealing with mild postpartum depression at this time]. There is a trauma lodged inside of you, and practices such as Ayurveda will help you release it.
We are also preparing you to take on more work. The fall and winter will see steady growth, and the spring will bring greater gifts to you. Balance comes as you decide what to keep and what to release. There will be an intense "spring cleaning" when Colin [my son] turns one. You will be asked to clear out what no longer serves you on every level. [So true, see here!]
Think of this year as a detoxification. It may feel hard or may feel like you are failing at times. Just know that you will find your way, and know that this time next year you will feel much lighter. Everything that is coming is for your highest good, and everything that is leaving is for your highest good. Trust that.
