A year ago two woodchucks came a calling. Chewing through six feet in length of the rim joist holding our house up.
To make matters worse it affected us being able to open our front door. Ugh….Extensive damage indeed. We had to pull off our cement steps and jack up part of our house in order to fix the area. The ramifications in energy aspects of not being able to open the front door meant no one was welcome. And, we couldn’t get out, the universe was not allowed to see us. We kept ourselves hidden. Well, really not us, it did not affect handyman, my husband, at all. This was all about me.
Whatever did these varmints have to say?? More importantly, why was I not getting their message. And how important really was it that they had to gain my attention in this manner? It was crucial indeed.
Woodchuck, Groundhog, Marmit, all the same animal, has an important message about the boundaries we place on ourselves to keep ourselves in, invisible to others, and to the universe. Or to keep people out. People who have been taking advantage of you. People that don’t respect you or what you’re about.
Which is it for you?? It could be one or both. Most times it’s both.
When you become accustom to keeping yourself unseen or invisible, you also allow others to walk all over you. Even your kids. Succeeding in making you feel as if you have no confidence whatsoever.
Groundhog comes to you to remind you of these boundary issues because now is a time where you should be investigating, or testing the waters by sticking your toes in, to experience or venture into new areas of your life. You will not, however, make it out of the testing area if you do not set up boundaries for the people taking advantage of you and get rid of the limits you’ve placed on yourself. The growth you’ll encounter in these new areas is exponentially high in all areas of your life. It is not to be left undone.
Go for it!! All of it!!
Encounter all the new areas coming up for you. Or, if you’re not seeing this, they will be coming to you soon.
With all of this happening, you’ll soon be experiencing a sort of death and rebirth process. After all, you can’t go forward packing a lot of unwanted weight of old outdated material that no longer helps you in any way. It’s just too heavy for you to carry. You’ll be forced to clean it out. This may mean you need to look at your diet. Taking a look at what you’ve been eating making you pack on weight only to help yourself stay hidden from us, the public.
This new sense of self growing inside you is one filled with great confidence based on who you are, not what people have determined they want to see of you. You decide what’s best for you and you choose what you’d like to do in your life to bring in happiness, wealth and certainly, but not least, health. It’s up to you to stand up to the challenge of changing your life right now. Not later. Not a year from now, but now, right now.
If you don’t heed this warning from the woodchuck you will be brought to a place where it’s up close, in your face and noticeable. This may mean you’ll encounter challenges, as I did, to get you to notice what’s been going on. What you’ve set up to keep yourself invisible, and what needs to be released in order to rebirth the greatness that’s been instilled in you since your inception. It will now make a full appearance. You will need to grasp your power in order to go down that path.
What are you going to do??
Go for it? Or turn and run in the other direction.
If you run, woodchuck will keep coming. He’ll start to chew away at something of significance to you.
My front door is what welcomes my clients, friends and family. Without a community, you can become very lonely and desolate. Without your inner strength intact, you become fair game for people to take advantage of you.
It’s time you clear away some of the weight keeping you where you’ve been.
It’s time you start to change your life going into new areas that help you prosper in all areas of your life.
If you don’t know how to get there or are feeling afraid call on the woodchuck. He will help you.
Calling on the woodchuck can help in the areas of:
Feeling like you need to retreat for long periods of time. Rest and relaxation are a good thing, hiding is not.
You need to slow your pace in daily life in order to see what’s in front of you.
Helping you to use breathwork to gain strength, knowledge of your inner conflicts, and self-respect.
Support in understanding the meaning of where you’re headed.
