Gayle’s Reflection: This is a wonderful card for starting the week. Mondays can be challenging as we begin the work week with resistance to letting go of the weekend. We may feel our lives out of our own control as the need for a pay check dominates our actions. In the workplace, our need for approval and recognition steps back into play as we put on our “work faces”. Maybe you are fortunate enough to have the freedom to be yourself at work. If not, aligning with the work environment is often a potent stressor. The shadow of IX is reflected here where perhaps our thinking is out of alignment with our heart knowing.

Sometimes we know our work is not in alignment with our heart wants. Just notice where you are feeling it in your body and make small adjustments to get back in alignment. Do that by finding a point of relief with what you are thinking, feeling or doing. Just breathe deeply and remind yourself “this too shall pass” or “all is well”. Or maybe use the affirmation below.

Our world shows us this shadow as well. The NFL is a great teacher of men. They have been teaching men that it is ok to be violent with one another, in fact it is glorified and you are promoted. Now the shadow of this is exposed. We are seeing where the NFL must teach men that the violence has its place ONLY on the playing field.

Please NFL ,MLB, NBA, NHL and ALL institutions, military, academia, justice system, Hollywood, businesses, government in all forms… do not cover and protect those who are violent, or abusive to women and children. Watch and remember what you teach boys and men when you allow these acts to go unpunished or minimized.

This is the shadow of IX showing it to us today that our institutions are out of integrity.
We must come into our hearts and align with what is correct action.
How can you do this for yourself today? Choose what is best for YOUR HEART!

Affirmation: “Through heart-knowing, I am in natural alignment with divine will.

I pray for the alignment of hearts and minds for all leaders today!
Love Gayle
