on showing up :: in my circles i always thank people for showing up as they are, and invite them to feel gratitude for showing up for themselves in such a big way.
the work we do in circles is huge. it’s life changing. and that takes a lot of guts and commitment. not everyone is ready (and that’s okay!).
i say it every time because the bravery and the enormity of showing up cannot be overstated. sometimes, showing up all we can do. when we are going through huge releases and shifts, and it feels like everything is falling apart, this is all we NEED to do. show up, be present, and keep going.
i’ve been having a VERY hard time with this Moon. my Moon is in Gemini and my Mercury is in Sag, which just went retrograde. I’ve had to confront a lot of old, difficult energies that are ready to be released. it actually feels like i’m being slapped. i’ve just wanted to fall apart. even though i LOVE holding circles, today i just wanted to crawl under a pile of blankets and not come out for several days. it was hard to get myself in the shower and out the door. but i had to show up, and do the work that i am meant to do, no matter what is going on in the sky or in the world. or within me.
it’s easy to show up and trust in the universe when things are going well. and it’s also easy to hide, cancel plans, and completely opt out. when it’s hard, that’s when showing up is absolutely critical.
the circle today was so beautiful... so beautiful. i am so grateful for each and every one who came, and lifting me up. thank you.
i guess this is all one big note to self. show up, no matter what. it’s all we need to do. the Universe will meet us more than halfway.
