As it’s mental health awareness week, the focus is on loneliness. Mercury is also going into retrograde motion from today till the end of May; this might just be a sign from the Universe to take a little time out of our busy days to focus on being mindful. Don’t hesitate to give us a call at Barefoot psychics so we can embark on the journey of mindfulness with you.
The words mindfulness, mental health awareness and mercury retrograde have often been banded about without us truly knowing what we need to do about this time or about our mental health.
How do we even start our journey to mindfulness? Does it require hours of concentration in silence to reach that mental state of wellbeing or nirvana. No one really seems to know. Some believe they achieve it through yoga, some achieve it in silence and some listen to the scientists and learn more about their brain patterns and neurology.
If you call Barefoot Psychics the magical thing is, that most of our psychics will recognise exactly what you need in terms of being mindful. How is that possible? Well, the psychics at Barefoot are mindful, we live and breathe it and that goes someway if not all the way, to helping us show you.
So, what is mindfulness? Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens. Being mindful has been known to contribute to mental health awareness and also wellbeing.
By listening to you, we at Barefoot Psychics will know where you’re at and gently steer you to the next stage of your higher self by simply allowing yourself to be heard. If you want to vent about your daily experiences, we will listen and be non-judgemental. And when you have come to a place of peace in your reading with Barefoot Psychics, we will then start to help you find a way through. That usually involves us helping you to be more mindful with your daily life, in your dealings with others and also helping find solutions that are right for you. The magic really happens when we join you on your journey, so you don’t feel alone and fearful. We help you to unravel some of the occurrences in your life so you can better deal with them.
Our psychics at Barefoot Psychics will light the way, and before you know, you’re being mindful without even knowing!
So how does this month of Mercury retrograde fit in with the mindfulness fever? When a planet is in retrograde it means that we on planet earth are travelling faster than that planet. It then appears like the planet is travelling backwards – in other words – in retrograde motion. Mercury is the planet of communication. So, you could literally take it to mean – that all communication is going to go backwards and not forwards. If you believe in planetary motion and physics, then you could say that Mercury going retrograde could affect the way we communicate. From ancient times people have believed that a Mercury retrograde phase can cause utter chaos.
Most of the saints and the Buddhist monks, as well as Jesus would then disappear into meditation or into the desert to fast and pray during these times. Being mindful at times of chaos can really help.
So, if you’re wondering about embarking on a detox or retreating into nature this could be the perfect time to do it. Talking to Barefoot Psychics won’t make your fasting, meditation, or prayer journey so lonely during this time; our aim is to help enhance your mental health. And if you are facing the utter chaos of Mercury retrograde, we help you to take little steps to remove the chaos and help you on your mindfulness journey.
