Honoured Cycles

There are times in your life when you will have great lessons to learn, spiritual messages to decipher and new practices to try. And there are times in your life when you may not require anything at all. Sometimes you are merely needed to be a support to others. As a woman, I can tell you these times are a part of the cycles of our lives. There is great importance to the daily, monthly and annual cycles we experience. To honour these cycles is to accept them, and to accept them is to surrender.

For months I have personally been striving to accept the cycles bestowed upon me. I had figured out that there are times that we feel fantastic, full of energy and life. There are times when we feel tired and quiet and almost mournful. There are times when it is right to turn our focus outward in order to connect with others and to offer our support and our energy to them. Wholly Completely and with only good intention.

I feel that this is a time for me to offer support to the ones I love, by simply being there for them. It feels incredibly natural right now to offer this support ... there is no hesitation, no discomfort in the idea of offering my hands to others instead of turning them back towards myself.

This is the first time in my life when, instead of feeling bored during a lull in my personal growth, I feel truly attuned to the possibility of what I can do for others. The miracle for me here is that after months of talking about honouring my cycles, monthly, annually and daily, I finally feel connected to this idea.

Allow yourself to accept where you are, right now, with no apologies and no worries. Honour your cycles and be true to your inner self.

    This post is so evocative for me right now. Thank you for writing it. It is so true...and now I know it is ok to put myself aside for awhile, wait for the time when I need to focus inwardly, and help others in the meantime. Thank you, Nicole...a really great post!

  2. Hi Marion!

    It sounds like you're feeling better then! That is wonderful news.

    I'm really glad that you connected with this post.

    Here's to the joy of (occasionally) serving others!
