Emotional Eddies

Nov 08 , 2017

An Eddie is a naturally occurring phenomena when fast moving bodies of water begin rushing around obstacles. It circulates downstream, towards shore in a reverse swirl. The current flows to fill void created by the flow of water and sometimes form whirlpools.

An emotional eddie is when you get so caught up in the obstacle that you cannot move forward. You are stuck in a circular motion repeating the emotions over and over. This seen in the 4 of cups when we are so consumed in our own world we fail to see opportunities that are right in front of us. Practicing mindfulness and balancing future, past and present energies through acknowledgement, acceptance and release will help control the eddies.

Emotional eddies are common! They happen quite often in the crescent moon phase so don’t get yourself down if you find yourself swirling around obstacles instead of manifesting. Release them so you can move on. Know they are not necessarily a bad thing either. Sometimes we need to go within and focus on healing or changing an aspect of ourselves. There are lessons to be learned in those struggles but it’s important to throw ourselves a line out when we intend to do that.
