Some people may question why one would want a house blessing. To be clear, I am not a paranormal investigator or am I going to walk in and sense spirits in your closets. However I am perceptive of energy, most of us are. Did you just move into a space? Have you been dealing with an illness (physical or mental), arguing with a family member - having family discord, gone through a loss, or just did a remodel or deep clean. This is a perfect time to reset the energy in the space. Smudging with some herbs, using sounds of singing bowl or chime, using Reiki energy are all tools to re-balance the energy. Some may feel this is symbolic, others feel the difference when a blessing is performed. A positive energy boost will only be temporary if the people who live in the space do not find balance within themselves. If you are fighting with your partner after the blessing - energy is going to dip down again. Depending on what challenges you face, you could benefit from Reiki and/or counseling to find the balance and joy you seek. Everyone deserves happiness. However we are in charge of our own happiness. Find what is getting in your way, address it and move forward. If you continue to revisit what is making you unhappy and no steps have been taken to find a solution - you will remain in the same place - you may blame others, but it is your deal. It sucks but it is true. It takes effort to make a change - you may find that you have to make tough decisions. It is a risk to change -- although the situation you are in is impacting your happiness, the thought of change causes too much stress - it is easier just to keep the status quo. I get it -- much like weight loss. You hate having 30 extra pounds, but continuing to eat the same food, sleeping that extra hour is much easier than getting up to exercise or eating vegetables instead of ice cream. We hate the extra weight but changing the habit is hard -- we don't lose the 30 pounds in a week so it is very easy to just deal with the weight. At some point - you will be ready for that change, ready to take the risk, ready to be happy. Best regards in your journey.
So Mercury is in retrograde, stress is surrounding me, too much to do and too little time. Can you relate? My daughter is turning 13 in a month, she is doing great in school and going to be the lead in Guys and Dolls this weekend. She is also in her first Community Theater show and has had rehearsal all week for The Little Mermaid opening in June - her birthday weekend. Not to mention she is doing standardize testing in public school... is flirting with boys, is going to be in a parade with her band in a week. She seems unfazed, however typing this makes me tired. Work has been unstable, stressful and especially challenging. I have staff who are passionate about patient outcomes (meaning - throwing fits to get what they want), executives worrying about the bottom line (meaning - not wanting to spend $$ on providing what my staff want) and Supervisors who are losing their minds as they are trying to make everyone happy. Me -- I am the boss, trying to keep everyone from going ballistic. It is almost Friday -- one more day until the weekend. I do love my weekends. I am very fortunate that I like my husband, we have a lot in common and we only have one kid so we get to spend great quality time together.
What is my point? In reviewing my week, I am aware of the self care that I have provided. I got a good amount of sleep 7-8 hours a night, meditated about 3 times this week (goal is at least 5, but I did better than last week) and although very busy, had some quality time with my husband. My daughter was at the theater most evenings but seems pretty happy. When my family is happy, I am happy. When my work family is unhappy it makes me concerned but I know what to do to help them. I focus on what we can control and remind everyone that each of us are doing the best we can in the moment. Everything is a learning experience and tomorrow we will be wiser and have more empathy than the day before. So take a deep breathe, hold it, and let it go with the stress of the day. We will all be wiser and more balanced tomorrow.
