From all the reports in astrology and numerology, we have a stellar year ahead! Last year was a year of transformation and alot of odd junk was cleared. Jupiter the planet of expansion was in Scorpio, a sign of the deep, dark depths of us coming to the surface for review and release. Luckily, that is all complete now and Jupiter of expansion is in a lovely sign of Sagittarius for 13 months. Fun, learning, travel, excitement, just plane double expansion! Very exciting. People are finding their true passions in life! Much happier times ahead.
As we begin the new year, it is a great time for review and renew. We can begin to add new things to life that support a greater experience here. Small change is how we grow and create new ways or habits, so consider small incremental changes that could support a healthier, more empowered you. Big resolutions and changes do not stick as we know. We must be gentle with our body deva or basic animal body and work with it to support us in greater health by loving it, listening to it and working with it to gain new habits that delight us both.
So in this new cycle, these are a few ideas to consider.
Honor your body and realize how valuable it is. Work with it and the innate health system it has by listening to it, being kind in word and deed to it. It is like your greatest pet, the horse on which you ride as a conscious being. It has it's own brilliance that does most for us without a thought. It digest, cures, heals, purges, beats our heart, turns food into energy, gets us everywhere without our thinking. It has a childlike consciousness so we must be kind and loving to it. If we are, it does wonders for us without any thought. To create a greater look, lose weight, heal illness, we MUST find a loving connection to it so it will work for incremental change. It is the only way! So consider loving and honoring your body just as it is so you may create a more healthful one.
Emotionally seek more joy and passion. Feel your feelings and listen to their guidance. Don't stuff down sadness or anger or fear. Notice, watch and let it move through you. Most illness comes from not feeling our true feelings. You don't have to get caught up in them, just recognize how you feel without trying to talk yourself out of it. They are like waves so when you feel angry, notice, observe your annoyance, see it's message and then move to the next emotion. We hold them in, don't honor or notice and then it becomes blocked energy in us, awaiting the wrong moment to come out for it builds energy being stuck in us. They are just indicators, feelings of our idea on what is occurring often based on lenses of childhood. Notice, feel and they actually move very quickly out of us. It is the stuffing or ignoring that creates issue. When you learn to ride your emotional nature as the guidance it is, you have more experiences in bliss and joy. They may be right or not, that doesn't matter. It is a wave of energy so let it be felt and allow it to pass on. Seek toward things that bring the emotions of happy, joy and laughter in simple ways and greater health will ensue.
Accept that your mind is just a tool. Like the emotions, it is not always right. Infact, it is often filled with conditioning, old beliefs, many untruths that we operate with. We have been taught this is the only tool. When in our highest consciousness, yes mind is brilliant. But generally we are in low mind which I consider a virused computer. We use it for labeling, catagorizing, systems, analysis. It is behind the body experience and takes us out of presence so it should be used wisely. It is not the finest of tools for it is finite and we are in a world of infinite becoming. Use your emotional sensing, your other 5 senses and pay attention to what is truly occurring not just what we think is. Present awareness actually lets go of the mind or uses it in the observe position. If we are thinking, we are not doing, experiencing or being present with what is. Use this tool wisely or it will use you in chatter, monkey mind and mental loops that waste life and energy. It is the computing tool. Use all levels to discern your experience.
Embrace your spirit in great ways. Add in things that excite you and inspire you. Find ways to expand your joyful, childlike ways of your spirit. It needs attention to get to know the true you. We are so filled with conditions, shoulds, woulds and limiting images of who to be. We are not those things, we are unique, playful, brilliant spirits. Developing our awareness of ourselves in fun ways adds such lightness and joy to our days. When we develop and connect with this divine part of ourselves, all other levels shift and become more to our liking and becoming. Participating in ways that enliven your spirit adds more passion, love of life, energy to do and happiness to us.
Finally and most importantly, TAKE BETTER CARE OF YOURSELF! Only you know what your need. Find greater ways to relax, rejuvenate, renew yourself DAILY. This puts you in parasympathetic oxytocin of stress relief. We are way to stressed over nonsense and things out of our control. Find time to rest and relax, be creative and playful. This adds greater joy of life as it is in the mess of things. It inspires you with creative solutions, energy to move through whatever comes and vitality to feel good. Relaxing is the master elixir for all things. It provides clarity, calm and peace. It is why there are so many apps for chill, drinking, drugs for stress, the whole market of items that we don't need if we just breath, relax and find joy in small doses through out our day. A walk in the nature of beauty, a cup of tea watching the birds, a bath, a veg day on the couch, a nap, saying no to something you don't want to do. All these things of slow down and chill out are the healers par exellent. They are free, Easily done. 5 minutes is enough to create reset to clarity and calm. Magic comes of this in incredible ways!
May you have a wonderful new year and take these small changes to heart. They are simple ways for a life of greater happiness, joy and energy. They are not hard or resolutions per se. They are simple perspective shifts that can transform your life and give you reasons to do self care. Daily, hourly and weekly, we need to honor ourselves as the spirit we are. We are not this body, our emotions or thinking. We are fun, light spirits here to experience joy and abundance and learn from what occurs. It is a magical world if we can get present to play with the conditions that are here. Not always so lovely but certainly learning and designed to bring out our clever, brilliant gifts to endure and enjoy all things.
To a happy, prosperous, healthy and expanding new year of expressing your true spirit that is uniquely you!
