When I have the wires or bands adjusted on my braces, the official terminology is detail work. And that’s exactly what the Universe wants us to discuss right now. Only, ya know, on a metaphysical level, not inside my face.
I heard this before I left the comfort of my cozy bed:
Because of our current Mercury retrograde situation, it’s not a good idea to begin anything new at this time. What IS recommended is all aspects of “re” – as in:
review, refresh, reassess, rejuvenate, renew, reenergize, resume, recall, regenerate, replenish, reawaken, revive, refine, repair, remember, revise…..
The process of taking a moment to look deeper, examining those fine details, refamiliarizing ourselves with the smaller particulars gives us a chance to tune in, on a soul level, and simply within our own quiet and sacred self. We allow our busy-ness to drop away for that second, and we are calm. We are renewed.
Another part of this has to do with releasing the nagging, material-world specifics, giving way to the peaceful, tiny blessings, letting them rise to the top. Those usually uncredited players (like, our ability to hear and breathe and walk and speak) are not the biggest of our details, but they are among the most important.
This is the first month of my other new calendar. It’s going to be our Sharing and our Resource for today.
Use it as a meditation aid, if that’s something you feel drawn to. I’m going to study this view, then close my eyes, sending my mind to that left-side chair (so I can put my virtual feet up on the wall). I’ll keep the details that want to hang around, and release those that are no longer useful.
You might want to do something similar. Maybe I’ll see you there?
