Time to Clean
In the month of Virgo, we have a special gift from the Creator: the ability to go back in time and re-establish our connection to the Light in areas that in the past we created short circuits and negativity. The Rav calls it the month of “going back to the future.”
The month of Virgo is represented by the virgin – a metaphor for the time before anything was defiled or corrupted. The work is to cleanse our souls and to plant new seeds for the year ahead.
I would like to share with you a powerful tool for change to use during this time. This is a great preparation for the holiday of Rosh Hashanah:
Meditate once a day to ask the Light to remind you of your negative actions from the last year. Go throw the following four steps:
1. Identify the incident.
Go back to that moment in time and ask yourself why it happened… “Why is it in my movie?”
2. Feel the pain of what occurred.
Not the guilt, but the pain of the negativity created. Most importantly, feel the pain you have caused others. This is the best way to work through the lesson. We can circle problems our whole lives, but the only way to rid ourselves of the burden of these negative issues is to face them head on, to feel the negativity we created, and to work through them.
3. Replay the scenario.
Go through the exact same situation, but this time imagine and reenact it as if you have been completely proactive.
4. Make a commitment for the future.
Make an oath to yourself that you will approach similar problems by dealing with the situation in a new proactive manner next time. Really commit to changing your behaviors, keep asking the Light for help, and be ready… the tests are coming!
Virgo is about self-reflection and that requires hard work. But when Libra and the High Holidays come, you will see that it was well worth the effort.
