“New Year – a new chapter, new verse, or just the same old story?
Ultimately we write it. The choice is ours.”
As I write this Blog, I pause to gaze out of the frosty window – I can almost feel the icy air on my cheeks, a thin layer of pure white ice covers everything outside…Its a very cold day, a day to snuggle up and keep warm…
To me it brings a stillness, a silent calm to all that has taken place over the past weeks and months. Perhaps a time to sit quietly and reflect, or simply to rest a while…before the new year begins in earnest…
ONE WORD: Surrender
COLOUR OF THE DAY: Fiery Orange
HOW I FEEL:
I realised I am not here to change myself, fix myself, improve myself or transform myself.
I am simply here to meet myself, accept myself, love myself and be myself.
Some years just float by with little change, but last year changed me on very deep levels…I underwent several challenging periods of ‘initiation.’
Most were unexpected, some anticipated. At times I was enticed to work with past issues, which propelled me out of my comfort zone…
I understand that change is necessary and all change is a form of initiation.
But, we as mere mortals, need to be true to ourselves whilst we surrender to whatever life brings – holding ourselves accountable for our own lives! I know that I (we?) need to settle down, and accept all that is coming and bless this time I have here on Earth.
Are we not key players in a game that we chose to explore and live through? Well, I intend to take one gentle step at a time into this year, no rush, and to experience each unique and monumental event!
’I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth.’
‘Suffering arises when we cling to that which is changing’.
Perhaps now, more than ever before, it makes perfect sense for us to marry the ideas of modern science, the wisdom of ancient spirituality and the regular practice of prayer and meditation to balance our own lives, as we embrace the power this has to change our world!
In the past few months, it has become obvious that we are walking through that ‘mysterious door’, and beginning to cross a bridge into the unknown world, of which we have yet to create.
We have had to re-think about what we knew to be ‘true’, and we have to learn new ways to live in this rapidly shifting world.
‘Movement is the process of the Universe.
But do not stand still.
Do not remain ‘on the horns of a dilemma.’
Do not fence sit.
Put your foot down on one side or the other, swing the opposite leg over and start walking.
You’ll know before you take ten steps if you’re going in the right direction.’
‘We have the opportunity to completely reinvent our lives, or to stay stuck in our stagnant old habits and patterns. We can take clear, decisive action to fulfil our Dreams, or we can resign ourselves to the thought that our Dreams are too impractical or too far away to achieve. Anything is possible. Even the impossible is possible!’
As we refocus and begin 2017, breath a clear breath, and look into your hearts to see how we are feeling.
Understand more clearly – who you are – and make sure that you continue to focus on all that is Light …
Move steadily forward, even if at times, it feels as if you are not moving at all.
2017 = 10 = 1 = The number ‘1’ represents the beginning of a new cycle, new beginnings, embarking on a new journey of learning and growth.
In a universal ‘1’ vibrational month, the beginning of a new universal cycle of 9, it is a time to plant the seeds for the forthcoming cycle.
The foundations you set now in the present, set the foundations for the next cycle.
What are you passionate about?
What are your goals and inner-visions ?
“Red onion skins and New Year’s Eve have much in common –
they both peel away to reveal new vibrancy.”
AFFIRMATION: “ I am perfect just the way I AM”
