During the Mercury Retrograde it's important that you pay attention to your inner spirit and really dedicate time to going within. Meditation can help you to connect with your spirit and in doing so can also help you to use this as a chance to release any inner emotions which are not serving you good within your life. There are so many different meditations available, try to find one that focuses on releasing and energising, as right now these are two important areas for you to focus upon. Meditation can also help you to connect with your higher self, and in doing so you can tap into finding the answers you've been seeking about your direction in life and this will help you to contemplate the next steps you need to take.
Step 2- Relax!
With how the energy can be during Mercury Retrograde (quite slow and difficult to get things moving) rather than fighting against this, go with the flow and take some time out to relax. Ask yourself some reflective questions such as "Am I where I want to be in my life?" or "What can I do next that is going to help me move forward?". As you relax, you will find that the answers to these questions come through to you and your body will thank you for giving it the break that it deserves. Perhaps treat yourself to a lovely aromatherapy bath or pamper yourself for a whole evening, after all.. you deserve it!
Step 3- Keep A Journal/Notebook!
I've found that many people during this time say about having profound dreams and that emotions often come to the surface. Keep a record of any dreams you have through writing them down in a dream journal, but also use this journal to write down any thoughts, emotions or inspirations that come to you. You'll also find that as you do this it will open up the channel for more inspirations and creativity to flow to you. Through doing this it'll also help you to reflect upon your life and your life purpose, you'll discover things about yourself which you didn't realise were there and you may even release certain past experiences that you didn't even realise were affecting you. This is a time of healing, regeneration and contemplation, so a journal can be your best friend through this!
Step 4- Drink More Water & Eat Healthy!
Yes it may sound simple, but it's important to keep your hydration levels up as this will help to increase your sense of well-being physically and emotionally. As we go through spiritual changes, very often water is a very important factor because of it's cleansing properties. Also try to eat what your body feels drawn towards, as your body will communicate with you what it needs right now. To find out what this is, close your eyes and relax, go within and ask your body what it wishes to eat. You will get some kind of response, whether it is through an image, feeling or visualisation. You can use this anytime you're out shopping or trying to choose what to have for a meal.
Step 5- Surround Yourself With Positive People!
During this time it's important for you to try and surround yourself with positive and uplifting people. Sometimes in life it can be hard to control this fully but if it is possible, try to spend your time only with people who have a positive energy. This will help to keep your energy levels high and will give you a chance to work through your own emotions, rather than taking on the emotions of everyone else around you! Also keep up with using energetic protection if you're in a place that is negative and cleanse your energy daily whilst you have a shower/bath. If you try to get into the routine of visualising your energy being cleansed as well as your physical body, you'll find that cleansing of your energy field can be a normal daily routine just as cleansing your physical body is.
