Fog

Here in the Rocky Mountains, the weather seems to be turning quickly from summer to fall.  Though the leaves have not yet started to change color, the fog has rolled in over the last few days and the air feels different.  I found myself scrambling yesterday afternoon to get the kids a couple of heavier coats.  It all happened so fast.

It gets me thinking about how change comes up quickly, even when we KNOW it's coming.  We can see certain events in the future and suddenly they're upon us and we may or may not be prepared.  The way the fog rolled in this week is a great metaphor for life in current times.

We may be planning a trip for months but when it's time to go, it feels like it sneaks up on us.  We may be getting ready to move but when the day comes, it's overwhelming and there are so many details that need attending to NOW.  WE may be ready for that job change, wedding, divorce, etc and yet when the time comes to make it real, it gets a little intense no matter how prepared we thought we were.

We know what's coming sometimes but that doesn't always guarantee that we're ready.

I've been watching people go through massive changes lately, at work and in relationships.  A lot of the changes were wanted and perhaps even anticipated but now that they're upon us, it's a bit of a scramble to get adjusted.  Perhaps you can relate to this as you wrap your mind around the acceleration a lot of us are experiencing these days?

Foggy thinking can result from our struggle to adjust.  When in the midst of it all we find ourselves digging to try and find some kind of core to grab onto.  So many people are calling me and saying they just don't know what to do.  If you don't know, consider waiting just a bit.  There's no harm in waiting until we have the clarity we need to speak and act in ways that communicate our truth and what we want.  Just wait a bit...

It also helps to have someone who can listen and help get to the truth of what's really going on.  I would love to speak with you at 12listen.com about the fog in your life.  We're having some big sales over the weekend and on into Monday in celebration of the Harvest Moon.  Stop by Sunday morning for some of our lowest rates. I will be there!

Consider joining me on Friday at 12academy.com for my GROUNDING AND PROTECTION MEDITATION.  This 20 minute session will get your energy clear and focused.  Let's cut through that fog and get back in touch with the core of who we are and what we want.  There are no guarantees in life that we'll get everything we want, but we can certainly get closer when we figure out what it is that we DO want and what needs to be cleared away to make space for it.

I'm going to replay Stonestreet Cafe #53...TRAVELER, Thursday at 6pm PST/9pm EST at 12radio.com.  I know you'll enjoy this particular show and it's relevant.Exploring the world is expansive and putting attention on those less fortunate can give us fresh perspective.  Take it from my guest, Morgan Smith who's spent much of his life searching, seeking and serving.  Perhaps reaching out to help someone in need can help shift the fog and bring much needed clarity?  If that isn't the perfect Virgo pursuit, I don't know what is!

I hope to see you over the next few days at 12listen.com and 12academy.com.  Let's move with grace to the next amazing space!!
