In 2011, as in previous years, we will experience a number of vortex shifts and the influx of new energies as we progressively move towards the energetic recalibration of the family of humanity (which includes the earth) into higher vibrations and dimensions. We have been involved in this process for more than a decade and each wave builds on the preceding one as they work together to alter our physical, physiological, psychic, emotional and mental bodies, allowing us to incorporate more of our spiritual beings into our human bodies through a process that releases density and replaces it with light.
January holds some wonderful surprises for us as another year of amazing new energies begins to unfold. Chances are you have already begun to see movement in your life and this will continue throughout the month and extend throughout the year. There are several themes for January which are personal responsibility, balancing your needs with those of others, being in energetic integrity and using your personal power.
Everyone seems to be getting lessons in dealing with people who seem to not only disregard their needs but who do the exact opposite. What do you do with someone who appears to deliberately oppose your wishes, stand in your way and block your efforts? Their behavior is not OK and they force you into a corner. Do you come out fighting or walk away? And how do you decide what is not OK and what to do after that?
As we begin a new year we feel like we have so much to do in order to change the world and ourselves. Each new level of awareness we achieve opens our eyes to what is 'wrong' around us. But it is our ability to move into a new level of energetic vibration that allows us to become aware of our disconnection, missteps, mistakes and poor choices.
Every new year begins with resolutions to be better, smarter, more successful and happier. And this generally lasts for a little while then we step into our old ways and the new year can become a repetition of the previous one. What happened? We set out with good intentions and yet nothing changed. There is a very subtle understanding that will help you create resolutions that you will be able to keep and see the results you want in your life, and it has to do with how you set your intention.
We are once again at the dawn of another year, which is another opportunity for us to fine-tune the integration of lessons we have been learning for several decades and beyond that, multiple lifetimes. What 2011 brings is more clarity, understanding, transformation and growth as long as we approach this from the point of detachment, observation, unconditional love and acceptance.
As we wind down the year, there are only a few weeks left, the situations that we need to release for the coming year are becoming very apparent to us. That is what I have seen with clients in the past few weeks and I know that more is coming before the end of 2010. How much do we need to let go of, though, before we can move on?
There is so much happening this week that we may feel rushed, tired, overwhelmed and frazzled. In addition to the holiday season, which some people view with mixed feelings because they must spend time with those that they manage to avoid for the rest of the year. For others it is a happy time that allows them to spend time with those they love. For everyone this is the end of a rather challenging year and the beginning of a new journey. This week we have Christmas, the Solstice, Mercury is still retrograde and a powerful full moon.
We ask for clarity and when it comes we often don't know what to do with it. Suddenly we understand the reasons for everything in our life and this doesn't always make us happy. With a critical eye, clarity can show us every dark spot in our energy, every powerless act and thought, or point out where we have given our power away to others. But with a more discerning eye clarity is a wonderful tool that can empower us in an instant if we learn to use it in a useful way.
Occasionally I receive negative feedback from a reader and I appreciate their taking the time to write. Although I read and respond to their emails, my response reflects my belief that every teacher has an audience and they may not be part of mine. I must admit that receiving criticism was a little shocking early in my writing career, but of the millions who read my newsletters and messages each week, there are bound to be a few people who do not like something and who will voice their displeasure.
