We’ve passed most of this year’s Lion’s gate and have one day left tomorrow. As every year it causes a big energetic shift within us, whether we’re aware of it or not. Whether you are up to date on the latest astrological developments and know what is going on cosmically, whether you believe that we are influenced by certain star/planetary alignments or not. Most people go through a certain shift during this time of the year.
We see it on the news, even Gaia herself shifts and purges energy, releasing old energy (tornadoes in Amsterdam?), more emotional violence taking place (shootings, attacks, murders), no one escapes the shift that occurs in energy during this astrological new year basically.
Especially because this year’s Lion’s gate followed a pretty intense Mercury Retrograde, it was very palpable and the contrast was immense. The Lions Gate is basically a star alignment between Gaia and Sirius. It’s called this way because it occurs in the astrological sign of Leo. And each year when these stars line up because of this alignment high frequency vibrations are released that influence our auric fields and energetic bodies. It resonates with certain particles of our system which causes intense and rapid spurts or growth which can be accompanied by growing pains so to speak. Which for us creates more spiritual activation.
So if you’ve been feeling off, experienced very high emotions one moment, very low the next, it’s your system integrating all these frequencies and the best thing to do during this accelerated time of astrological surges is to just flow with what comes. With the feelings and don’t resist, it’s this resistance that creates more tension and just makes life harder. Which brings me to my next topic.
These surges and energy shifts are also noticeable on social media. I can tell from just reading the daily posts that appear in some of the spiritual circles I am a member of online. There is one online women’s circle where a woman, conscious mother wrote about how much empathy she felt for mothers who were clearly losing it during this specific time. And if you are a mom.. I know you’re lying if you plan on telling me that in all of your mothering years you have never felt this way. Because I know you have, I have! It’s motherhood and it’s challenging but it’s possible, and even more, it’s growth and it’s strengthening. She felt bad for the moms who were sat on the couch in tears, crying day after day about how hard it was, how they felt like they had lost themselves. And I feel their pain too. I commented on her post because I too see it and have experienced it and that is partly also what got me into the idea of offering an e-book about this topic. What I told her was the following
“It is important that we, as moms demand from themselves that we thrive as a mom, as a woman and as a human being. Because that is the only way our kids can really see the joy of life, by us setting the example. Sure it’s hard.. I have a 5 year old now who was colicky, highly sensitive and immediately overstimulated as a baby, when too many people were near her, a super light sleeper.. you get it, and it is easy to feel like you’re becoming a victim to this and I insist that I find ways to love life and be the best mom I can be at the same time. Energy does so much! If you live in a relaxed energy and just flow with what comes and stand in your creative power as a woman and do what you love while still trying to be a good mom (I have to admit I needed to work on this so much and it took me about 3 years to kind of master this) then your kid will see it and will want to follow your example. She is a handful.. but these kids chose us to be their physical guardians and vessels for them to enter the planet in this time of ascension. We can do this AND be the best versions of ourselves! I can relate, I feel like that too, and I acknowledge those feelings when they come up, feeling like it is too much, too hard, too intense, but I immediately check myself, and go ok.. I am not truly aligning with that on the grander scale, I am feeling like this in the moment, I can change it now, and choose a different feeling and experience for myself.”
There ARE ways to still be a good mom and still make time for yourself
There ARE ways to insist on self-development and still be a good mom
There ARE ways to connect with spirit and your God-essence and still be a good mom
- accept help
- include your kids in your activities
- model conscious behavior
- spend more time outside
- organisation is key
Right now as I am developing a growing baby bump again and plagued by the occasional exhaustion. I am working on illustrations for an awesome kid’s book written by a friend of mine, active kindergartner at home for the summer, regular day job and attempting to offer other creative things and little by little jotting down paragraphs for this little e-book. If I can do it then other moms can do it too. So moms, let this Lion’s gate be the powerful surge of energy that you need to truly even become more radiant and stand in your creative power and let go of what’s holding you back!
