We end the week with the mermaids joyfully saying, “Make a Wish!” Now is a truly magical time and the mermaids advise us to keep an open mind and an open heart. They say, “Expect to see miracles, and you will” They say that now is the time to make wishes and spend time dreaming about the kind of future you want to have. They say that no dream is too big or too small. Allow yourself to give in to flights of fancy, unexpected detours and joyful spontaneity.
This week’s lesson in releasing the past and moving forward continues into the middle of the week with “Time to Move On.” The mermaids tell me that in order to move forward into our future, we need to let go of things that hold us in the past. They advise making a list of old hurts, angers, grudges, people, places and events that have happened in the past and make a conscious choice to let each of them go. You could say something like, “[old boy/girlfriend’s name], I release you so that I can move forward into a bright, glorious future!” Repeat with each thing on your list and then allow your attachment to fade. If you feel that you need help, you can always call on Archangel Michael and ask that he cut any and all cords holding you to these negative events.
We begin the week with a message of “Self-Forgiveness,” reminding us that it is human to fall short of our goals and to make mistakes. The important thing is to view ourselves, flaws and all, with love and compassion. When you find yourself running down that list of all your shortcomings, comparing yourself to others, or beating yourself up for not being perfect, ask yourself, “Would I talk to my best friend like this? Would I allow someone else to talk to my best friend like this?” If the answer is “no” (and it should be!), you have to remind yourself that YOU are your own best friend. Don’t allow your best friend to be treated this way! Negative self-talk is as good as a negative affirmation to the Universe, telling it that you are unworthy and uninterested in joy, prosperity, energy and all the things you want and need in your life! The mermaids say, “When you find yourself saying negative things about yourself, immediately stop and say ‘Cancel that!’ then replace the negative statement with a positive affirmation. This will counter the negative energy and boost your self-esteem.”
