So I have a confession to make. For the better part of the last week, I’ve been more down and out cranky and stuck in feeling unhappy than I can remember. I got sick with yet another cold threatening to turn into a flu and I just could not snap myself out of it.
Crystals? Essential oils? Sound advice from family and friends? I was so resistant to receiving any and all of it, yet I wondered why I wasn’t making any headway and, in fact, seemed to just be getting worse. My headache and coughing started Wednesday and only started getting better on Saturday because I finally listened and started drinking more water – yep, I was that dehydrated that anytime I bent over or stood up my head would just pound. Same would happen with each cough. The physical symptoms continued to worsen through Friday with plugging in my left ear and any attempt to unplug it with yawning just hurt. By Friday night, I had reached my limit to all the pain and just cried, I was so frustrated and tired and sick of being sick.
Healing, whatever that means for you physically, mentally, spiritually, is a journey. Sometimes, it takes going through your lowest low to realize that your options are to continue staying in that low or seek help for yourself. Listen to what the world is trying to tell you – it is wanting to help you anyway it can but you have to be open to receiving that information.
So for this week, continue to search for the joy and spark that can inspire you. Pink Opal is here to give you that nurtured, comforted feeling as before. Today though, it is joined by Bronzite, whose energy adds fortitude for your journey as you delve deeper into self care. Peridot also comes to offer the big picture of the point of this month, which is all about heart healing and allowing yourself to feel more love in your life. The more surrounded you are by love, the more joyful you become, and the easier it is for you to share that with those around you.
