I went to the farmers market today and found myself wandering through the stands feeling into the energy of the people shopping, and into the energy of those who were selling. After departing the market I found myself pondering the financial status of our country. I could easily feel the strain and gratitude mixed into every transaction at the market. The vibration of those around me felt worried they would not have enough.
The challenge with this energy is it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. What we hold is what we attract. As I pondered this energy in the safety and comfort of my quiet home I noticed the flowers blooming in a potted plant in my bedroom. The aroma of the sweet tuberose wafting through the air. As I smelled the fragrance my Guides spoke to me. “When a flower no longer blooms we do not think of that plant as no longer vital. We wait for the next cycle to begin again and honor the time of dormancy. If we fight the dormancy the flower will never bloom again.” What I take from the words of the wise ones is this. We are currently in a winter cycle financially. There are fewer resources for many. When your resources are scarce it is a time for you to go inside and use the inner resources you have to sustain you. As you use your inner resources your flowers are bound to bloom. If you do not use your inner resources and keep fighting the winter cycle you will be waiting a long time for the bloom. If you just choose to surrender to the inner time completely and your inner resources to support you, you will then magnetically draw to you the resources you need to sustain you. Surrender to the winter and go within. Know that spring will come sooner than later if you surrender. The more completely you surrender and allow your own inner wisdom and tools to comfort you the sooner your Spring will be. For some winter can last lifetime, for some winter lasts a month, a week, or a year. It is your choosing. This world we live in is a dream and you have the ability to dream your own dream instead of the dream of the masses. What we hold within us comes to us. Choose what you want to hold within and see the shifts in the outer world.
