Everything you go through, grows you! Ever heard that one before? Fortunately it’s very true and some of you right now might be saying, “How is that fortunate?” Let me explain: That missed opportunity you’re giving yourself grief over – there will be another opportunity! Everything happens for a reason. That job interview you tanked – it’s okay, everything is as it should be. That guy/girl who never asked you out or called you back – rejection is protection! The Universe does things in silly ways. Yes, silly. They’re silly because we don’t necessarily understand them. We get angry most times when they take place. We allow frustration to overtake us and then gloom and doom sets in. “Why do I always get the short hand of the stick?” “When will it be my turn to for (insert your hopes/dreams/desires here)?”

It is YOUR turn! Stop giving your power away. When you hand it over and perceive yourself as defeated, you are defeated. But in reality you are not. Listen: I know it’s a hard concept to grasp and so much easier to just say or write BUT… You are exactly where you should be, right now, in this very moment. Everything is as it should be. Stressed about something? STOP – allow it to unfold and release the need to judge it. When we place judgement on situations, circumstances and individuals we allow the misperception of the ego to set in. We ALLOW (yes, allow because you are handing over your power to the ego) by judging it, analyzing it, interpreting it, attaching an emotion to it. So you may say to yourself, “But Amy, how do you ALLOW sh*t to go down and not judge it, analyze it, interpret or attach emotion to it? That’s impossible!”

I used to think so too. But it’s not. You need to learn and understand this lesson. Our perceptions can be from truth or can be misguided and fearful from our past experiences being projected forward (it’s okay, reread that a few times!).

I will say it again – you can perceive what takes place in your life exactly how it is OR you can perceive it with fear. FEAR is your past experiences projecting themselves (from memory, through your ego) onto your future and your here and now. How does fear do that? YOU ALLOW IT! When you live from a place of truth, you can have no fear since it isn’t real. Fear is merely us allowing what has taken place in our lives and attaching those past experiences to what is happening right now. When we do this, we see exactly what we expect to see – a repeat from the past. Exactly what you were expecting. You’ve given yourself NO CHANCE at moving forward because you’ve purposely held yourself back. By expecting the worst, we witness the worst. By expecting the best, we witness the best. You feel me?

You are going to be OKAY! You just need to decide that you are going to be okay. You just need to make the decision that you are going to accept what is without judgement and leave the past in the past. These past few weeks might have been emotional, stressful and overwhelming. Mercury went into Retrograde October 4th and it’s going to be there until October 25th. When this happens, when Mercury decides, ‘hey let me just spin backwards for fun’, it stirs up a lot of stuff. Exes can return into your life, confusion can set in, communication can be all wonky and off and emotions can overtake you and get the best of you IF you allow them to. This has been a rough Retrograde. We’re in the final stretch, don’t quit 5 minutes before your miracle. You have been going through something, experiencing something, growing and learning a very vital lesson this Retrograde. If you beg to differ, I highly suggest you check yourself and the last two weeks of your life. Review what has taken place. Journal out all your thoughts on what has taken place – the good, the bad and the ugly. Then journal out your truth. Oh yes, your truth – it’s in there, it’s inside of you. What is ACTUALLY happening and what is just a fear from the past projecting forward? I’m telling you, write it, put it down on paper and look at it. When we visualize our thoughts, we can keep them in check. I often have clients of mine journal. It has been a very beneficial tool for me throughout the years and I receive the same feedback constantly – that it helps! Our mind is tricky if we don’t claim our power. Our mind can play tricks on us when we don’t recognize that it’s not actually us or our thoughts, it’s our ego and fear seeping through into our present. Do not believe the lies that are fear-based. Do not believe your ego. Your ego is full of lies. Write it all out and stay strong because by next week, you will be wiser, stronger and way more powerful than you ever imagined – only if you stick with the truth!

If you would like guidance in journaling and conquering the fear-based lies, email me. I will provide you a free consultation to give you the tools to help prepare you to start living from truth, rather than fear. This is your time to breakthrough and break free. This is your time to step out from the behind that dark cloud that you perceive as following you around, when really you’ve just got it on a leash. The good thing about leashes though, is you can unhook them anytime you desire. It’s time for that dream job to become a reality, it’s time to embrace that special relationship, it’s time to rid yourself of depression and anxieties, it’s time for you to not be living in fear anymore!

I look forward to hearing from you all

Namaste my loves, xo Amy
