January 2011 Energy Forecast: Concrete Change Begins

Many of you will have noticed these past few years have been ones of clearing the way, with periods of forward movement then periods of integration - integration that sometimes felt like regression. The 'old' mind (which sees the world based on how things were 5-10 years ago) often tells you this process is chaotic or that something is going wrong.

Yet this experience is playing out exactly as was predicted for a long time. These years were always about a great shift for the planet and us, its people. And the pattern for the last few years is that the shift takes place within us as much as outside of us.

2011 sees a noticeable difference. Where many of you have been energy surfing for a few years and are now used to this ride, it has taught you to stay grounded through it all, to let go of control, surrender to what is, to feel what you're feeling and simply 'get on with it' for you never know what's coming next.

Well, January will see more of you 'getting on with it' more than ever before. This will give you a powerful energy up-shift for the month which will be in stark contrast to many people around you.

January is typically the lowest month from the emotional perspective for many in the western world. Festivities of Christmas are over, fatigue and/or disillusionment sets in for those who had a strong focus on the holidays and suddenly let go of that focus, and in most countries, the weather is a literal challenge to our bodies. Even the lack of daylight affects our physical mood. Stay conscious of this and hold your own vibration as these energies swirl around you. Physical exercise, fresh air and nature, listening to music and dancing are all great remedies.

Many of you who have been working on emotionally clearing for awhile will now immerse yourselves in new projects and activities. Don't turn down invitations to try new things or go new places this month, because shifting your energy towards anythingnew in January will have a positive effect. It sets up a template, opening you to new things and new people to come into your life. And you will be surprised at where those things take you. Anything new will have a powerful energy in January while older or more known aspects will be somewhat stable and quieter for you.

In some ways, the quiet internal space many will go into during this month will allow those of you holding a high vibration to step forward, to receive some of the energetic space left behind by those who are feeling the need to internalize.

This year many of you are paving the way for the next 2-3 years and making concrete new realities for yourselves. If you’re working on creative projects, from January onwards, recognize these projects will form a STRONG part of your world for the next 2-3 years. They will be holding an energy of 2012 as everything being created this year is designed to withstand and usher in the changes 2012 will bring. Everything not in alignment with that energy will either not work or be left unformed.

The intensity experienced by most of you in November and December will calm in January, because until March 2011, the influx of new energies will happen at a steadier pace. What began to hit in November is now stabilizing.

Be aware however that any new commitments should be carefully considered. Playing with and experiencing new avenues will work well, but trying to define long-term commitments with others (i.e. business, friendships or relationships) would be better left for February and March since January’s push for you to continually let go of anything not of your frequency will remain front and center. New endeavors will need a 2-3 month period to stabilize before you commit to anything long-term. This part of my forecast surprises me as I write it. I’m thinking, “Surely we’re all aware that nothing is certain in this life regarding commitments?”

However, I am assured this information is important because some of you who will be asked to commit to new things and people, those requests will often come from those who want to harness or hold onto your energy. And by February or March, you will see this and realize these are not the tethers for you. So just stay mindful that any commitments you make are only needed in the Now, and be wary of anyone pressuring you to sign a dotted line. You will know in a month or two what commitments are in your highest and best good.

This dynamic will show up in personal relationships as well. You may have confrontations and/or clearings within some personal relationships where it is time to move out of old contracts and roles. 50% of these relationships will strengthen as a result and 50% will lessen their importance in your life for a while. However it may seem in the moment, it’s all good. These released contracts will allow you to usher in the new. As we are more defined by the people around us (our 'contracts') than we usually realize.

2011 will be the most important year of your life so far, and as a result it will be a year colored by big decisions and experiences as this new wave of light gets more grounded. Things are becoming more concrete within you and within everyone.

This month begins a year of celebration of freedom around the world. Freedom often comes through first seeing and then breaking the perceived prisons, shackles or handcuffs you’ve been bound by. And the wrist-burn that sometimes accompanies the release process is quickly replaced by the euphoria of that newly found liberation.

If November and December saw you breaking more shackles than ever, know that January brings you the freedom you’ve been seeking these past years. That freedom begins with you and your energy, so throw yourself into whatever feels right and let the momentum carry you.

Go explore the world again.....
