Willow

What do you do when everything has gone haywire and you believe you are innocent, and yet you stand accused of causing the chaos?

This is the time for you to be very Yin. In Chinese medicine, Yin means receptive and waiting, not active and outreaching.

Rudyard Kipling's famous poem "If" gives this advice:

Keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, and blaming it on you.

Especially now, particularly now, try to keep yourself as comfortable as possible.

Do not join the crowd of people berating you.

Keep your internal soundtrack upbeat.

This is the time for you to stand as still as a willow tree. Your roots are sunk deep into the soil, and as the storm winds gust past you, your leaves move about, but the tree stays put.

Welcome the chaos. It's bringing you an opportunity to make a decision. Be ready. Absolute chaos means Spirit is about to shower you with new information, light, and insight.

You know your truth, and that's what matters. If others are mistaken about you, either they'll figure it out or they won't, and you will deal with the consequences as they unfold.

How you emerge from it all, by standing your ground like the gentle and beautiful willow, will form the basis of your next stage of selfhood.
