The festive season is upon us and it is a time to celebrate that you are here, you are alive and you are free. For many this is a time of gratitude, joy and reflection on the past years events and honoring how capable we are of adapting to great changes in our lives whether we intended them or not.
For some, the holiday is a time of mixed emotions. Many are moving into the unknown physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually. Some have already moved and are trying to adapt to their new environments. Others have had changes that affect the heart and this echoes an unexpected loneliness that can tempt us to look at what we are lacking rather than what we are on the cusp of creating.
As we reflect on the incredible amount of shifts in the world in the past year and the affect of those shifts on us, it is easy to be overwhelmed with what is not going so well in our lives. This can become a platform for a pity party or blind us to our ability to improve our lives. The fact that you are here now means you found the courage to make or accept changes in your life no matter how small. With these shifts inside and outside of ourselves, our personal philosophies about who we are and how we live are challenged.
Now is the time to get out of our heads and into our hearts as we review and re-frame the past year. Sometimes we do not want to let go and move on because we’re not sure what, if anything, will replace what we’re leaving behind. But there are plenty of new opportunities for you just waiting around the corner, and focusing on what is coming into your life will effortlessly, naturally release that which has served its purpose. Think about anything that you are worried or angry about and then send love to that situation and see how you feel. Love is the opposite of fear. Move from your head and into feeling with your heart.
Love encourages us to take a higher perspective on any situation; it is the spiritual essence of wisdom and peace. Look for the silver lining in your current circumstances, there are many, challenge yourself to see them and ask what lesson the situation is giving you the opportunity to learn?
Worry, sadness or anger are reminding you that it is time to bring love back into your heart and shine it on solutions. Love sheds Light on things, we see things clearer. From this heart space, we can visualize the solution we desire, sense what feels like when it happens and cultivate faith in ourselves to do it. You are the center of your universe and your thoughts and feelings attract more of the people and experiences that reinforce those feelings. When you feel and express love and faith that things will work out, you start to program the vibration you send out to the universe that magnetically attracts more of those experiences.
World peace begins with peace anchored in the heart of every person. Only then can we affect permanent change where love and peace are the heart center of all intentions. When we make peace with ourselves and others, it brings a sense of inner wisdom, a shift in consciousness, that you are honoring who you are and are walking your truth…..inspiring us all to do the same with a domino effect. Dream big, feel it in your heart, have faith that you are guided by a loving Source and trust yourself to make it happen. You are the dreamer and the dream.
What do you believe you can be? We are approaching a new year, 2014, which is a 7 year in numerology. Seven is number associated with illumination of the Divine in all things. It is about embracing our spirituality and what we believe to be true. Right and wrong, good and bad, faith and trust, if you have any doubts in these areas, this next year will attract events that focus on opportunities to raise and expand your consciousness, to decide what you stand for and what you do not, and walk your talk. Faith and trust will be a big focus for most of us in our personal lives. This is not only faith and trust in the Divine and how it works in our lives, but faith and trust in ourselves, relationships, marriage, career, society, what we believe life should be about. Perception is reality and you will attract that reality faster when you hold the dream in your heart, feel it, be it, and love it.
As Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said “Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”
Blessings to all for the strength and courage to hold love in your heart and peace in your soul, now and always.
