Lots of opportunities for emotional excavation this week!
What do you have to lose but your suffering?
How freakin’ terrified of we to experience any kind of pain at all? Our culture is pathologically averse to experiencing any kind of pain, even if the temporary feelings of pain will lead to emotional liberation and freedom from pain, It’s a conundrum, for sure. Emotional excavation can feel like physical therapy rehab, which it is, except that unlike physical therapy where the cause of the pain is usually obvious and there is no need to re-visit the trauma to heal the body of injury, not quite so in the emotional realm.
The emotional realm doesn’t really work by the same rules. If you really want to rehab your emotional body and free yourself from the burden of carting around buried and repressed emotions which periodically will break through your holding patterns, triggered by people or circumstances that seemingly have nothing to do with you but actually have everything to do with you and what you are attracting vibrationally, you will have to revisit the scene of crime, as it were, and feel what has been kept hidden away.
And then, almost like magic, feeling the feelings, which is not the same as re-living the trauma that created the feelings, will set you free and relieve you of suffering. Emotional excavation can create a healing crisis – the opportunity to break free to healing, to come to a place of compassionate neutrality for yourself and others involved in creating the drama of your trauma.
It just happened to me this week as I experienced a deep emotional trigger of feelings of loneliness, abandonment, and betrayal that were identical to what I experienced when I was between the ages of 5 and 7. More about that on my latest Soundcloud recording. Suggestion: schedule a Nervous System Release session with John Wing Flower. Details of his gentle, powerful work at Wing Flower Wellness.
Ok…so why now?
Planetary alignments for the month of December point to LOTS of opportunities for emotional excavation and HEALING potential. What does it feel like to be healed? It feels like when the triggers come your way (and they will) you are neutral, rather than right back in the pit of despair. Doesn’ t that sound so much better?
Why is December 2018 so emotional?
Venus has re-entered the deeply emotional fixed Water sign Scorpio, after completing her retrograde cycle for 2018. She will be transiting through Scorpio until January’s New Moon on the 1/6/19. Mercury has retrograded back into Scorpio until December 13th. Mars is transiting the super sensitive, “I’m feeling EVERYTHING” mutable Water sign of Pisces until December 31st. For the rest of this month the personal planets closest to us – Mercury, Venus, and Mars are all transiting the emotional water signs. Feelings will be UP! Schedule your Astro check-in to see how best to navigate these shark-infested waters with the natural gifts you possess for your own personal journey!
