The More You are Conscious, the Less You Can Avoid

Classic Mercury Retrograde. Yup, that’s my car in the picture. The path of expanding consciousness gets quicker and more direct the further along you go. Healers don’t get off easy, FYI. I think we get hit harder, faster, and more, if we don’t take the bull by the horns.

For instance, here’s me after driving 2 hours and a hundred miles with a car having trouble, trying to get back home, breaking down directly in front of the street that leads to one of my close friend’s house. I had my feelings hurt a few days earlier and my shadow was up that just wanted to fall radio silent and avoid her instead of trying to talk to her again. Bullshit, says the universe. You go talk to her right now. Alright, alright.

After two trips to the shop and a conversations inbetween, energy cleared, even if we can’t agree and we cannot change one another, we can still be in a place of love. If two healers can’t come back to a place of love even when one rears their ugly shadow I don’t know who can. Its a dance, being human, and forgiving those who act out of their old pattern of humanness- whether they can change or not. Accepting others for where they are at. And sometimes, my feelings might get hurt. I’d rather not avoid life or make my world too small to live in.
