August Soul Reading: Understanding Life's Delays

Understanding Life's Delays

An In-Depth Look at Periods of Suspension

August 2016 Soul Reading: A Five Part Series

August's Focus: The Hanged Man ~ Suspension

You’ve done the work. You’ve looked within and you still can’t come to a decision. You are still not able to move forward. Frustration, anger, anxiety surrounding your past decisions may surface. You question if you’ve fallen off your path or completely missed your mark. These are all normal responses, even if they aren’t the most productive or helpful. This month we are going to look at how to gracefully deal with periods of suspension and transition and investigate reasons to why they occur.

Before we look at why these periods of suspension may occur, let’s define what it means. We’re talking about a period of time when things seem to stop, freeze or stall out and no matter what you do you can not seem to gain forward momentum. Prior to these periods in life you been moving along feeling fairly confident that you are going in the right direction. You’ve taken time to really think and ponder about your decisions. You are aware there’s a bigger picture and you’ve spent time thinking about where you fit in it. You’re going with the flow. Then the flow stops completely. Things dry up. You try to move forward in multiple directions and nothing pans out or works out. You’re stuck.

You’re left asking Why? What did I do wrong? Where did I go wrong? What am I not seeing? This month we are going to look at a few reasons why this may occur and how you can relax into these periods of pause by understanding why they are occurring and how to get back into flow.

Crystal Helper: Red Jasper ~ grounding and bringing issues to light

While working and thinking about suspensions and delays, red jasper can keep you grounded. It can help to keep you from spinning out of control or letting your mind runaway from you. It sheds light on current issues so you can identify the true reason for the delays. Work with Red Jasper this month and get a feel for its energy, so you can be familiar with how the stone works with you when you need it.
