We’ve experienced some intense energy so far this year. You’re being called to use all of the tools you can to stay peaceful, healthy, and happy. So, it’s essential that you DO take time each day for self-care.
“If the world is ending, should I just go ahead and change my life and do everything that my heart desires to do right now?” The female caller on my hayhouseradio.com show was sincere as she asked me whether she should focus upon her dreams, if the world was about to end.
At the end of each year, I sit in quiet silence and connect with the presence of the mighty Archangel Michael, and ask him for messages about the coming year. I hear his answers as clearly as if I were having a conversation with a wise teacher. I find Archangel Michael to be the loudest and clearest angel of them all.
Should I move? Quit my job? Leave my relationship? These are questions I’m frequently asked on my radio show and at my workshops. And no wonder, as we’re all in a time of great global and personal change. The angels say that the key to enjoying these changes is to stay flexible and keep your sense of humor. It’s also helpful to know that you’re not alone and many people are having similar experiences.
Recently, as I was scuba diving, I heard the unmistakable sounds of the dolphins: a beautiful melody similar to children’s laughter. I swam in the direction of the sound, and looked up to the surface where a big pod of dolphins was diving near me. At first, I swam fast to join the pod. But they changed direction and swam away from me . . . fast! That’s when I realized that I was chasing them, and thereby chasing them away.
This week, in response to my prayers, I received visions and messages about the mechanics of how our reoccurring thoughts manifest into reality. This is so exciting, because the angels showed both the energetic basis AND the solution for reoccurring negative patterns!
If 2009 felt like a long and arduous journey, you’re not alone! It was a year of learning life lessons, sometimes painfully. Many of these were lessons from past lifetimes, and they usually involved themes of taking responsibility for your actions and choices, practicing compassion and forgiveness toward yourself and others, speaking your truth with love, and learning how to balance your life.
Each December, I ask Archangel Michael for guidance concerning our next year. He usually gives me “themes” to expect in the new year, including suggestions for personal growth intentions and actions. The central theme for 2010 involves you taking personal risks which lead to spiritual growth and increased well-being and happiness as you practice, “To thine own self, be true.”
