Maybe it’s the way some of the planets in my astrological chart are situated, maybe it’s due to some parts of my childhood that stunted me emotionally but whatever the reason, I can sure get caught up in the past and become nostalgic. It becomes this seductive energy that says, “Hey, turn around, look behind you, you were skinnier, sexier, your life was better then. Your life is boring now, you’re boring now.” If I’m not careful I can get caught up and start to feel down. Sometimes a photograph can trigger it, especially if I’m tired. Bad combo. Well, today it started to happen. So, I decided to have conversations with my higher self to help me out of this sinking sand I was dipping my toes in. I knew I was playing with fire. Because I know it’s not true and I know the power is in the present.

My higher voice said, “Don’t believe your lies. You’re stronger now, wiser now, much more whole, your values and priorities are so much better now. Don’t be fooled. Don’t be tricked.” Listening to the wise me and meditating helped pull me out of the smoke and mirrors that almost trapped me.

If this ever happens to you, don’t believe the voice of your lower self. You are right where you’re supposed to be.

Happy New Year!
