There is no point in blaming others for your circumstances, easy and comforting though it is to do if you have financial pressures, or if you are in pain: others may contribute, reinforcing your wish to learn sometimes hard lessons about abusive behaviour, perhaps, betrayal or rejection, but you have opted to have them in your life for as long as you, and they, choose, and they can be your greatest teacher. You can decide, too, when the cycle of hardship becomes one of abundance.
Sometimes your human mind sets up a resistance to the intent of your soul, confusing and inhibiting the opportunities for change and growth; sometimes what you think is your choice is nothing of the sort, as you tell yourself you will lose weight today or leave your partner tomorrow – and it never happens because the risk is too great or the present reality is preferable to the effort that is necessary. It does not matter, except to you, for that is your choice.
This full moon of October with its compelling esoteric theme, “I Choose the Way” is a perfect time to ponder upon your life as it is today, a reflection of all the choices you have made not just in this present lifetime but in all your previous lifetimes. Is it as you wish it to be? What would you like to change? How can you do it? Are there stepping stones you can find to help you achieve your choice? How is your internal world?
If you harbour blame or bitterness towards certain individuals for their impact on your life, you may wish to reclaim those emotions and accept the reality that your life is as you have chosen to have it, and that they are helping you to achieve your aims.
So, choose your way well, consciously and wisely – and Spirit will help you, every step of the way.
