Loyalty is the theme of community and relationships. Of dependence, interdependence and independence. Loyalty brings us together. Holds us together and eventually allows us to part. Loyalty is not the same as attachment.
The truth is that it’s loyalty to ourselves that brings us to other people and places- because there is something there, and in them that we crave so much and need to be with. Loyalty is akin to dependability, both of which hold vibrations of groundedness, rootedness. This doesn’t imply that you stay with the same thing forever, but you stay with yourself forever. You know who you are so well that you are always loyal and dependable to it, even if the outer expression sometimes changes.
Loyalty honors the beauty of relationships, how we have so much to share with each other and we are willing to stick around to find out what more is there. Loyalty is secondary to trust- trust in yourself first and foremost and whether or not a situation/relationship feels good and worthy of your loyalty to it. Trust in others and the work you have put into each other to see past the fear of discomfort of challenge to the prospect of deeper learning.
The dark side of loyalty is sticking it out and staying around because you should, because you worked so hard to get here, because it’s stable, because you know they can be so much more, because you hope it gets better. Your eyes have moved away from yourself, your heart and are desperately seeking outside of you, in the land where you have to control, fueled only by blind hope and good memories.
Loyalty can stabilize or it can stick. You don’t have to be attached to something to be with it, even if it’s for the rest of this life. But really, loyalty asks you to be fully present and loyal to this moment and whoever, whatever is here with you. Make your choices and take your actions based upon this and what feels good about it- be it moving on or staying a little longer.
For those who are in an ambitious mode, the sirians, second and seventh energy centers loyalty reminds you to know where your feet are right now, it is from here that you take the next step. It doesn’t matter how badly you want the plan to work, or how desperately you want that dream, it is only now that matters and that has the answers of how to get to where you are going. Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face. Be loyal and dependable to yourself and your integrity in this moment and trust in the path forward. For those who are more grounded and maybe even stuck, loyalty is a fluid thing- remember who you are and what you bring forward, and what you deserve to expect in return- write it down and make sure that everyone and everything in your life hits this criteria. Be loyal to this, to yourself, more than the relationship, the job, the peace of mind.

So here you go, here are some bits and bobs of thoughts strung together for your enjoyment.
