November 2015 - Oracle Card Reading November 01, 2015 12:00

As we begin the month you may be feeling as though things have not have turned out the way you expected, but be careful not to focus too much on the negative, as there is positive in every situation even when it is hard to see. Fighting or trying to ignore change doesn't serve you. Instead, have faith that everything happens for a reason. 

We all have times in life where we wish we could change the past. It can become an obsession. Relationships and situations will end and no matter how successful or wonderful life may be, we all go through periods of sadness. It's healthy to grieve what has been lost and take time to heal. It may be necessary to reach out to friends, family and counselors for support and comfort right now.

Learning to deal with these feelings without letting them consume you is a very important life skill. Sometimes we need time alone to process and sometimes we need to surround ourselves with loved ones to help us through. Do not feel guilty for needing time and space alone or for needing to ask for help. Every situation in life is an experience that you can grow from and learn from. Every situation gives you a new outlook and a new tool to work with. Challenging situations allow us to build character and strength and teach us how to love ourselves. 

Without the hard times, we would never truly appreciate the good times. To help you move forward, try to be grateful. Think of the blessings that have come into your life. Some people find it helpful to start a journal or a jar where they can record all the things they are grateful for. Others keep it simple and every day when they brush their teeth they use that time to think of all of their blessings. The method isn't what's important, it's the action of staying focused on the good and allowing positive energy to surround you that is important. 

As you move past the beginning of the month you may have some very significant revelations in regards to your need to make some life changes. These may be new revelations or something you've known but have been procrastinating about. Now you've realized that this situation can't be ignored, it's necessary to take action.

This is a moment of both freedom and awakening. The way you see yourself in the world has forever changed, bringing you growth and encouraging you to spread your wings. Allow these new insights to motivate you to embrace the path of your heart's true desires and your intuition. Suddenly you are seeing the truth and it is liberating! Move forward in the direction of your hopes and dreams. There is no time to waste. 

As we pass mid-month, you will likely receive new information that will present challenges or delays. The message may come from someone who speaks bluntly and without thoughtfulness but do not take it personally. What's important is the message, not the messenger.

Do not let gossip, or legal matters keep you from pursuing your dreams. You will face challenges but you have what it takes to move through the hard time and to come out on the other side. Listen to any constructive criticism that comes to you at this time – the messages will be very valuable to your future.

As we approach the Holiday season you MUST make time to rest, even though your “to do” list is probably greater than it has been in a long time. Take a mini vacation or just create time to regroup and rejuvenate. Retreat from the world and let go of stress and concerns. If you've been ill, focus on healing and don't rush back in action. YOU are a priority. You must take care of yourself in order to keep doing all the things you do for others. Burn out is a real thing and you are not immune. Please, please give yourself some much needed TLC.

You really could use some time alone. Your situation requires significant reflection on your part. Meditation may provide the answers you seek if you've exhausted all intellectual possibilities for a solution. Don't let the excuse of being too busy prevent you from making time for yourself. Start with an extra five minutes in the shower or an extra minute or two before getting out of the car. All those little minutes will add up and help you in ways that you can't really understand at this time. Just know that it's important and it's not something that you should do, but rather something that you need to do.

The end of the month brings a close to a very stressful period, but you still feel mentally exhausted. Allow more time before making any major choices. You need to get more sleep. Even if you were getting a good quantity of hours, you may not be getting a quality sleep. Re-evaluate your sleeping habits and see what you can do to improve things. You might need to change your bedding or room lighting. You may need to adapt to new pre-bedtime rituals including powering down from all electronics at least 30 minutes before you go to sleep. It would also be a very good idea to find a calming bedtime meditation on YouTube and allow it to play as you are drifting off to sleep. This will ensure you have a peaceful mind that will lead you to calm peaceful dreams and quality sleep. 

May the month ahead be full of light, love and laughter,

Namaste
