First let me say that this combination, though a little too frequent for my liking, is not in any way a surprise. When I turned over the cards of The Intuitive Chalice Oracle today they all but jumped out to greet me and here’s what notion immediately entered my mind…
On my short walk back home yesterday from the local supermarket, where I had been picking up some supplies for a workshop I’m running on Monday, I had what my mum would term “a funny turn.” Now you must understand that there is nothing in the least bit funny about feeling unwell at any time but halfway across a busy road through the middle of a woodland carrying heavy shopping bags is even less amusing… I stopped as soon as I reached the pavement, put down my shopping and focused all my attention on my breathing until I began to feel grounded again, quickly calling in my angelic helpers to “fly” me home safely… I don’t remember much more of the walk but I remember arriving at the front door and feeling relieved to have made it in one piece… my body isn’t happy and the oracle is suggesting that problem is rife among us this week.
It’s really cliche at New Year for us to be talking about resolutions and getting healthy and I was determined not to do it, (talk about it I mean), that was until I flipped this combination of Principle 6: I AM Self-Full and the blood red base chakra. Your body is about to start screaming for your attention if it hasn’t already, and right now is the time to listen.
Health issues are once again the focus as we step not just into a new week but into a brand new year. Evidently too much indulging combined with a recent cascade of shocks, both media and personal, have taken a toll and we are all in need of some self-imposed TLC. For me personally, I try to eat at home as much as possible where I can prepare fresh and healthy foods, but over the Christmas period I’ve been privileged to have been fed by some beautiful friends and family and in attempting to be a gracious guest, the result is my diet has included increased wheat and refined sugar, swamping my system with a whole load of stuff I’m sensitive too and its rebelling big time.
Be gentle with yourself if you are starting to feel overly tired, sluggish or unwell… any symptoms you are experiencing are the beginning of wisdom when it comes to your physical, mental and emotional health, assuming of course you listen and take steps towards purposeful healing.
Healthy choices might be a good idea as might a gentle detox, but do see a physician/GP if you aren’t sure. Let’s get ready for Happy & Healthy New Year! It’s not a resolution, it’s a gift to yourself.
More next year… x
