Hiatus (slightly)

Hi everyone!

I’m taking a different approach now to updating you all on social media. Until I decide differently I’m going to stop blogging and start uploading more on Instagram (which will be shared to my Facebook page.)

It’s been quite hard for me to keep pushing this business on social media, making sure it’s seen on every platform around, posting all the time, creating content, blog posts blah blah blah.

So I’m easing up and creating several short things every day or once every couple of days on Insta. You’ll get to find out more about me and more about CFR.

Thanks for being with me so far.

See ya over on Instagram! (@circularchinesefacereading)

Today’s the day!!

Last week I announced that I would be giving free birth date readings on the 22nd from three to six pm GMT.

Soooooo!

What are your questions?

Where are you feeling stuck in life?

What’s been going on for you this year that has been batshit crazy?

In the comments leave your date of birth and a short question or description of something you’d like help with.

See you down below!

An experiment…

I’ve been thinking about giving free short readings.

So next Monday on the 22nd, 3pm GMT, at the time of my usual spot, you are free to ask me any question you like!

These will be short birth date readings, no faces required, so if you’d like a quick bit of advice or help please leave your date of birth and a short query.

The cut off point is 6pm GMT.

If you respond to the post (on whichever social media platform) past that time I can only say you missed the boat.

Okay, get thinking! Hope to hear from you soon.

Much love,

Autumnal Advice

Chinese Medicine states that there is a right time to do the right thing, that each season supports different actions.

This can easily be understood with agriculture – for example, Winter doesn’t support harvest and neither does it support planting new crops. If you did that nothing would work!

So this can be extrapolated to different actions, say you started a new business in Winter, or you were too serious and too much of a workaholic in Summer – doesn’t feel right, does it?

And this comes into my advice and words for Autumn.

In CM Autumn is a time to get serious.

It’s a time to review what’s happened in the year, what worked, what didn’t, let go of it (like the leaves) and then turn to the future by envisioning what you want next year.

Because of how subtle energy is and how interconnected we all are, you may be doing this already.

One of the problems that autumn can bring is that we can regret what happened to us year, to be stuck on what could, should or would have happened, the wasted time or missed opportunities.

If this is you, can you respect and honour your choices?

Can you recognise what you gained this year and respect that?

Can you see what you learnt this year and how it has enriched you?

And it is here I shall leave you.

At the table

Now this was a hard one to find a picture for….

For some, but not all, who were born in 1995, 1986, 1977, 1968, 1959, 1950, and 1941 have something which I call the “centre” personality.

They are people who are naturally kind, generous, thoughtful and naturally resourceful which can mean that friends and family rely on them, thereby becoming the centre.

Usually the centre of any household is the kitchen table.

So if advice were food, they would have the best tables! Everyone coming in or out to chat, or ask for help (this might even be a real life occurrence for them), or drop by for dinner.

The problem with this is that it can easily cause resentment, resentment which can stew and fester and blow up into a hurricane force of feeling “owed.”

Eventually you may do tasks with the expectation or on the condition of quid pro quo.

Nothing is permanent. It is possible to fix this.

First it is important to have an awareness that you feel like this and to be aware when these emotions come up. Nip them in the bud when you do with “well this story isn’t true anymore.”

Secondly, because you are the centre it can mean you feel overly responsible for other’s well being and emotions. Now back to the first point, be aware when you start to feel angry when others are not doing as you advise. Are you taking on too much that isn’t yours?

And lastly, realise that your friends, your family, whoever, their reaction is their responsibility.

Your 50% is to turn up, support, then walk away. Their 50% is whatever they decide.

It’s a bit like posting a letter or ordering a meal – you don’t stand over the chef while he cooks, you don’t stalk the postman as he posts.

That’s it for today!

Much love,
