the hierophant + spiritual crisis

i have come to a crossroads or standstill (i'm not sure which) in my healing. the first six months i dedicated myself to overcoming the initial trauma and aftermath. as i distant myself from it, i find myself asking, "what's next?" as i break free from everything, i find more blocks, and then more blocks. 

i'm asking the right questions, exploring the right avenues, but i still feel trapped. i turned to tarot, something i haven't done in quite some time. tarot is frustrating for me - i look for answers it cannot give my directly.

"i feel like i'm at a crossroads/standstill - what's making me feel like this?" i pulled the hierophant.

how i'm staying balanced during a spiritual awakening (and thoughts)

lately my head has been buzzing. i've experienced chronic sinusitis + sinus pressure for months along with tension where my third eye + crown chakras reside. i can’t focus. so much is going on in these chakras that i’m not (consciously) aware of. new ideas + creations are forming, emotional + ancestral blocks are dissolving… my intuition is ready to reveal itself.  so since my mind, my emotions, my spirit, + my unconscious are kicking things into high gear, i’ve been struggling to stay grounded. all the energy in my head has nowhere to go, unless i give it a hand.

we are asked to stand up for our beliefs. we are asked to speak up, fight back. maybe you're feeling more forthcoming. maybe you're not biting your tongue anymore. maybe your path of purpose is lighting the way for you again. we are learning how to become empowered, how to get what we want.. without sacrifice, without hurting others, without being selfish. we are learning how to be compassionate warriors. something about autumn makes us feel grounded in ourselves. the colors, the food, the holidays + community. plant your heels into the earth. we take care of ourselves + make good decisions when we feel solid, when we feel strong.

the throat chakra.

i have to admit that i've been avoiding writing about this chakra. i've only known the two very extremes of imbalances + i've come to resent it. it's the most volatile + dangerous of the chakras when used inappropriately. this means, however, that it can also be the most beautiful if we learn to work with it. the throat chakra sits at our throat, swirling with blue energy. we can feel it when we have a lump in our throat, when we have sore necks, when we talk or yell or sing. it's powerful.
