Question: Karen, how did you get into doing this “energy of the day” stuff?
This question was taken from the Typically Invisible Newsletter - 3 Favs & a Q - Aug. 27, 2020 edition.
I first learned about checking in with the energy of the day by using the I Ching when I was in acupuncture school. I tried, and as much as I wanted it to, it didn’t work for me. Then I heard about doing the same with tarot, but it also didn’t resonate with me.
Then I heard about checking in with the energy of the day by using the moon and planets. I’d never really been into astrology - my horoscopes never seemed to fit - but I decided to try it out anyway. I did it a couple of times and realized how much the young kids in my life matched the energy I was expecting. So I told my husband about it and I watched as he used the information I’d given him to empower his parenting. (He’s a very empowered parent, but I watched as he made a different choice than I expected as a result of the information he’d been given.)
Then, one day, I didn’t do the work that needed to be done to understand the day’s energy. That day was a mess. I was angry, impatient with my family, and I had an intense need to be alone (which was impossible at the time - which made things worse).
That night, I compiled the information for that day and realized: It was a time of retreat and renewal. There were both aggressive and loving energies and while some in my family manifested the higher vibrational energies, I fell into the lower vibrations and got stuck there. Had I been aware of what that day would bring, I may have been able to utilize the energy differently and perhaps could have made different choices. The day could have been a lot more enjoyable for everyone involved. That made me realize how relevant the energy of the day is to all of us and I realized I needed to share this work with others.
My work is to keep my vibration high and to inspire others do the same. That is how I propose we heal the problems the planet is facing today. This is just a little extension of that work.
