3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Today marks a return to the "old routine" and it's begun easier than I expected - I awoke well-ahead of the alarm and the usual chores got done in good time. It's now a case of simply getting on with things, and not neglecting essential tasks and disciplines.
Particularly importantly will be the conscious submission to the Higher Self/subconscious to run the show, my consciousness simply keeping focus in the right place. I begin the new season from a benign benevolent place and intend to fully capitalize on it.
