Things seem upside down, but don’t worry too much. The energy around you is finally balancing out and bringing you to the place you “need” to be. You’ve been dwelling in the negativity of stress and anxiety for so long that it’s become common place to you. But this isn’t the right place to be. The energy is shifting and moving toward the positive and the lighter, brighter side.
You’ve gotten so used to the battles of the war that you’ve nearly forgotten what it’s like to be at peace. Balance lies in all things, physical, mental and spiritual. You’ve done great work on the spiritual. You’ve made strides on the physical (though there’s still work to be done). But it’s the mental you’re struggling with and that’s where the imbalance is shifting.
Stop thinking the world is against you. Stop thinking you don’t deserve better, or that you deserve to be punished for past choices you made. What’s done is done and you’ve paid the price for it. Now it’s time to clear the psyche and allow positive energy to take over and balance out the past. To get there, you have this final hurdle of the past to overcome.
Let go of the past thinking. Accept the gifts of others, big or small with grace and appreciation. Allow others to thank you for the kindness you’ve shown them and in turn you’ll receive kindness. Don’t sacrifice yourself or give the shirt off your back and then refuse gratitude for doing so. That self sacrifice isn’t doing you any good, nor is it making you a kinder or nicer person. Refusing thanks is like telling someone to “take this” and then slapping them in the face when they say thank you and bake you some cookies.
Be gracious, show gratitude and allow the kindness to come back to you. It’s going to work out. Don’t give up!
