It is hard to believe that another year is almost coming to a close! Normally we
wait until the New Year to take a few moments to look back and see where we
have come from and decide the direction we will take for the upcoming year. Why wait? Before you get all caught up in
the holiday hustle and bustle take a few moments to begin the process of
reflection, closure and set the wheels of manifestation in motion for the
During the past ten months many have experienced the various energy shifts especially
around the full moons. With these shifts came the feeling of restlessness, a
feeling that something new must be learned, inner peace be gained and
connection with one another and God be obtained. On a world wide level we have
seen more openness to holistic wellness, awareness in Mind-Body-Spirit health
and people earnestly searching for Spirituality especially in our western
hemisphere. The next two years will no
doubt bring more shifts, ebbs and flows of Universal energy and being aware of
this will assist us in being prepared for the ride.
Our attitude not only attributes to our own life but that of the people, community
and ultimately the world around us.
Whatever energy we put out whether it is positive or negative will
attract the same back into our life as well as leaving a type of energy
footprint wherever we go. The more we focus on positive change not only in our
own life but for the earth we are assisting healing and manifestation on a
universal level. There is constantly a
flow of positive and negative energies throughout the universe – needed to
create balance, cleansing and rebirth. However, we need to remember our planet,
ask for healing and strength to withstand anything that will come its way so
that as a people we will over come the diversities that may follow. This is not to say that we worry about the
future and fate of mankind, taking on this burden of the whole world’s survival
but it does mean that we be mindful of our input into this energy pot and realize
how powerful a fuel our thoughts and feelings are.
Start by taking a moment to look back objectively over the last ten months and see
just what has happened since you made your resolutions back in January. The New
Year was when you set your thoughts on what you wanted to manifest throughout
the upcoming year. As spring approached, you knew it was time to plant your
seeds of desire in order for your thoughts to become reality. Throughout the summer you watched your
garden grow, weeding where needed, replanting if necessary. Autumn brings your harvest time, reaping
what you sowed. You are entering the
season of winter, a time to reflect, review and rest.
Take your time doing the above exercise, writing down what comes to mind right away
then perhaps meditating on it and seeing what comes forward from your
subconscious mind. You may be surprised at how much you have manifested and
connections you have made that will lead you on your next adventure. Remember
to examine all levels - physical,
emotional and spiritual- and see how one has helped you in another area of your
You deserve to take this time for reflection.
Next, we will be looking at finding “closure” in order to move
forward. Never underestimate what you
are capable of. In the words of St.
Francis of Assisi, “Start by doing what is necessary; then do what’s possible;
and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
