Rest is a common theme between our astrological and oracle readings for August. Does rest come easily to you? “We must believe we are worthy of rest. We don’t have to earn it. It is our birthright. It is one of our most ancient and primal needs.” ― Tricia Hersey, Rest Is Resistance: A Manifesto I often find it hard to really, deeply rest. Even when my body is still and the house is quiet, my mind is often burdened by the tasks still on my to do list... the goals I haven't yet achieved... the promises to myself I haven't kept... Many of us have been conditioned to perpetually worry about the ways we still aren't measuring up to expectations. It's exhausting. How do we train ourselves to REALLY let go? I found something in The Mystics Archives that might help! Here's an excerpt from Lindsay's "Gratitude S.E.C.R.E.T." framework that makes me think gratitude might be the key to accessing real REST... "Gratitude is magic hidden in plain sight. What you think is outside of you, is actually right within you. What you think is something you need to acquire, cultivate or obtain, has actually been with you all along."
