Whether it be 5 minutes, a day, a few days, or a year – take a break! Okay, you probably can’t take a year off of your life. However, if you feel like you aren’t accomplishing things like you usually do, you probably need some you time. I think it is even important to take a break from self help stuff. We are soo hard on ourselves to meditate, do affirmations, pray, write, this and that to heal. Sometimes, the most healing exercise we can do is to be gentle with ourselves and say hmm, “it’s okay that I didn’t do that today.” Do as much as you can, but no when it’s time to rest!
We are about today through a major period of astrological retrograde. Pluto, Uranus, Neptune, Saturn, Jupiter, & Mars are all in retrograde. Starting April 28, 2016 Mercury will go into retrograde. Retrograde periods are always thought of as this horrible thing. However, it is actually a great time for re-st. You have probably accomplished soo much this year! Take time to thank yourself for everything you have done. Recover, revive, recycle, & resolve everything in your life! Everyone is different, but innately you know how much rest you need. Take it for yourself, so you can continue to give back to the world and fulfill your dharma or life’s purpose!
