The School of Hard Knocks {Finding Joy In The Journey}


EXPERIENCE is a hard teacher.  It gives you the test first and then the lesson afterwards!

~Robin Rosenstiel

The good news:  Word on the street is that Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow, so Spring 2020 is just around the corner. WOOHOO!!! Based on the way my cats have been acting this past weekend, I would agree with Phil’s “early spring” prediction.

The bad news:  We aren’t out of the woods yet! Just because Spring might be coming early doesn’t mean we are in for an easy February. For those that do not track astrology, Feb 1 – Feb 17, is the setup phase for the next Mercury Retrograde which is scheduled for Feb 18 – Mar 9.

What does the Mercury Retrograde setup phase mean?
It means that the universe will be giving each of us a heads up as to an old subconscious story we need to release. This story needs to be released and shifted in order for you to step into your next level of potential. I have tracked this for myself and others during the past 3+ years and I can tell you first hand that it is spot on! Some examples that I have seen in the past from clients:

  • From People are not to be trusted; To People can be trusted
  • From Don’t ask for help because no one will help; To I can ask for help because someone will help
  • From It isn’t safe for me to speak up; To I can speak up without repercussions

So the Mercury Retrograde Setup Phase is showing you that the Universe does have your back if you pay attention!

And from someone that has a PhD in School of Hard Knocks, there is nothing like getting a “pre-warning” as to how to course correct vs. getting the universal 2×4. So how can you avoid the universal 2X4?

For the next 2 weeks…

  1. Become the observer of your own life
  2. Journal daily and write down the emotions that come up for you
  3. Pay attention to the situations where you…ACT REACT DO NOTHING

If you want to learn more about this Mercury Retrograde, I highly recommend going to Robert Ohotto’s website and signing up for his free Mercury Retrograde Webcast.

If the School of Hard Knocks gave you a diploma, what degree level would it state? Bachelors, Masters or PHD? Inquiring minds want to know.
