Self-criticism is only valuable if it is useful in helping you to correct what you choose to change about yourself. You are learning to trust your psychic gifts while also figuring out how to ground yourself to be more deeply connected to the world and its fellow inhabitants, even though you often feel like you have trouble relating to them at all.
This is going to take time to alter, shift, reacclimate. Being overly critical of oneself only serves to hinder progress. We want to foster a state of growth transformation, of being a bit better every day than we were the day before. Do not inhibit this transformation by demanding more of yourself than what is possible over a short period of time. This is a marathon, not a sprint. Celebrate the small wins every day without discouraging yourself and you will look back in a few weeks or months and see how far you’ve come.
Expanding your horizons will help you to expand your perspective. Don’t be afraid of the unknown. You know you’re not for everyone and so you have been shielding yourself from interacting with many people in order to protect your own energy. But being cut off isn’t serving you. You’ve been playing it too small and are being urged to come out of your comfort zone in order to make substantial progress.
You are being urged to embrace the fertility of your creative and receptive powers more fully, to embody them. In order to stand fully in that energy, you will need to consciously surround yourself with loyal people who you trust so that you will feel protected and connected, not cut off. It’s ok not to open yourself up to everyone, but not opening yourself up to anyone is inhibiting your power to create. And part of your fated mission is to direct this energy toward discovering and communicating the truth through your creative endeavors, to provide leadership for others and to take pride in the visionary, inspired ideas that you are divinely guided to send out into the world. Allow yourself to step fully into your power. Your humor will provide additional strength.
You can provide support for yourself in this by caring for and nurturing your body. Pay attention to what you’re eating and what you’re drinking, as well as how much time you spend on activities that bring you joy. Feeling like you are in a funk often comes from the perception that life is drudgery. It’s up to you to change this up, to make time for fun, to see the joy and to pursue it where it leads you. You will need this renewed sense of strength where you are headed so that you are able to stay in full alignment with your purpose.
