As I sit here this morning working I have just come back from taking my youngest daughter to school. We waited for over thirty five minutes for the bus which never showed up. Here the kids were diligent enough to go to the bus stop early so they do not miss their bus. Following the guidelines that have been handed to them from every teacher they have been meeting this week. The rules of school society in what is appropriate and what is expected from them, the student, this school year. As a good mother I have read every slip of paper that has been sent home, I have signed and given my whole status of life to the board of education here in my county. What I failed to find was the written notice that says if the bus is late here are the steps in which to apply. Do not leave the bus zone area or your child will not be marked excused tardy. Do not call the school as they will tell you to call the bus office to inform you what the status of the bus is. No we do not have that number for you, please look it up yourself. We do not know where the children are as the bus has not arrived at the school. And if you leave the bus zone to bring your child to school, until it is proven that the bus never showed or is running late your child will be marked un-excused.
I have looked through every fine print, I have searched with a magnifying glass and still nowhere is any of this written. All school papers in front of me, I am reminded of how precious we are, to escape notice as much as these words. But this is what many parents received this morning as they called the school to see what was happening and if they had a bus coming to pick-up the children. You know me; I am going to be laughing as every time we believe we know the rules… have a system down packed. Someone changes all of it and what was left this morning is many children with mixed emotions.
A handful of kids were just happy not to be in school, another handful looking to see if they can stay home all day. The majority of the kids were having anxiety attacks as they were going to be late. They were going to be missing their homeroom class. Would they have time to go to their locker? Would they be in trouble with their teacher? And would they have time to catch up on the work they have now missed, that everyone else will have already started. Almost as if they will be in a fog until they come up to speed with everyone else who were not late this morning. By the end of the day they will have caught up and with no problem. The lasting effects stored somewhere in the recesses of their minds, to come back once again as they will inevitably find themselves in the same situation at anytime in their school year. We accept this and know that also there shall be that lasting impression of how they continued to get through their day from this experience.… As my daughter says as she kisses me good-bye “ I am so lucky to know I have Angels watching over me”
This past week has been about being traumatized, the experiences you are having is an unfolding experience which is your souls way of stressing to you the importance of moving in the right direction and to not to allow you to become stale in who you are. Open your heart to kindness and watch the story unfold.
As we look at the traumatized ways in which we experience a situation or involvement that many are having a pull back of energy that they feel something is holding them back. That no matter what they are trying to do, it seems as if it will just not work or they will not get there, being interrupted as they move along their path. You know this feeling, it is like when you know you need to get something done, or finish something that you are working on. You have that strong desire to go out and do what is calling to you. And as sure as you step forward someone calls you, the family is having difficulties that only you can fix. Friends appear out of no where to fill your time and attention. And then you turn around to look at all that has piled up. Blowing out your breath you tackle the essential of the work to once again be disrupted. The energetic of their self has then experienced a different view of setbacks or has explored stepping out to find that which they offer or what they are doing was not as they perceived it would be.
This I call a disturbance to the energy of the soul. Like when you are in a situation where you have no time to think, you just react. Once everything is done your body starts reacting to the situation. A volcanic of emotions comes shifting in, sometimes this creates a vibration effect and sometimes it creates a melt down of not wanting to do anything.
As there is much greater awareness coming in all directions and sometimes this can be very intimidating to many. So the first automatic response is to try to push it away and not deal with it. Unfortunately it will just stay where it is, to keep returning until you have had enough and say fine, let’s get it done. It is like taking a reluctant child to the dentist office after they have had a bad experience. It is when you give yourself the chance to recognize this, that so much starts to make sense. You can then put everything back on track to move on once again.
Remember that the souls who have transitioned the past months have all been about innocence in our own self and the lives we have been living. This next generation of souls transitioning is about the different aspects of the physical life we live, to bring each aspect out into the eye of the beholders. See what memories each one inspires within you and what we…. as a whole consciousness of species are identifying with on this planet right now. We send our blessings, honors, love, compassion to all those who are making their transitions each day. To name just a few;
o Eunice Kennedy Shriver a powerful lady was a champion of the disabled who founded the Special Olympics.
o Edward M. Kennedy was the third longest-serving member of the United States Senate in American history; he held his Senate seat for more than four decades. He authored or argued for legislation that ensured a variety of civil rights.
o Adam Goldstein, after recovering from a deadly plane crash, DJ AM master turntable technician, world-renowned musician, died Friday of a drug overdose.
All three represent an aspect of the World as a whole. And there are many more to come. Each one will represent that aspect that we live or have been influenced by in our lives. It does not matter what religion you are, the color of your skin, what party you are with and vote for, or the music and drugs, what you watch on television or the books you read. It is all the same cocktail, all mixed together to symbolize who we are on many levels.
Humanity is the simplicity of the desires in which makes each individual who they are and then bringing that together to make the whole.
Be gentle to yourself as this time right before Mercury Retrograde can be one of a challenge but one that can be easily moved through.
Remember for this whole month until the 29th of September, is the time to finish what you have put aside and found you did not have time for or that which you did not want to attend to. You know the little things you placed in the corner of the room- the stuff you will get to later. The individual who you have been meaning to call, but can’t seem to find the time. Those piles of paper and work that just keep getting higher and higher upon your desk or counter, and yes, the cleaning out of the clutter in your home, office or car in all these areas and more. Of course the time to get that un-used journal out of the desk or bag, and write to share with yourself the inner soul urgings that are always there. To journal about the issues that keep coming back to you. This energy will support you in moving through it with greater ease. You can have the energy to get through it and feel the refreshing relief when it is all done.
On the other hand to allow it to keep being put off or piled up, to create the mountain of no ascent is all about the energy in which you live each day. Now what we find ourselves at is this…. make the choices now before this Sunday when Mercury Retrograde starts. Make a list of things you will be doing for the month of September, now.
In this way you will be allowing the energy to support you in what you will be doing. Do not start anything new during Mercury Retrograde. This will never work or you will have twice as much work to do to accomplish what is very simple. This is why we go back to say…initiate it now. If there is a class you want to take, if there is car in which you want to buy, if there is something you want to be a member of, do it now and you will be able to move right through the month with no problems.
Years ago, I once told my husband not to buy a car in the middle of Mercury Retrograde; he laughed and spent extra hours at the dealership to get that car.
Within one month the car broke down on the side of a major highway on the way to South Carolina, well… the car ended up needing a brand new engine. The complete engine, the motor every part of what there was.…. it took weeks for the work to be done in South Carolina and then all the extra money and time traveling back and forth… No… this did not faze him, just a quirk. Okay. Well, he was on a mission to prove to me there is no way this could be… Finally after many months he descends off his high horse to say I might just have something there. For everything that he started and bought during Mercury retrograde was a dud. To this day he tells all his friends that I say do not do anything. I have to laugh at him and with him at the energy of what is at play.
Be generous to yourself Right now, enjoy every moment of your time with your family and friends, be the “ness” in niceness and offer a helping hand to each other and most importantly to yourself. This time of year is the moving time, ever present, ever changing. Keep moving in your direction, if it is meant to be you shall be. If it is not mean to be you will find the walls coming up to greet you every time you turn around.
Happy September as we move into the energy of gratefulness and generosity.
Love, Laughter & Light, Adele
