We are speeding along and ending another year of extreme growth and change.
- What have we learned?
- What will we bring to 2022?
- Have we stayed on track with our goals and intentions?
There is a learning curve of how to tend to oneself and others during this time of dismemberment and simultaneous rememberment. Mostly our minds are focused on what is broken and what is not working. And although we do need to take actions now and in the future, we must have the energy to deal with what is coming. And we need a period of growth to gather the energy for our continued journey and purpose.
When we move into a state of growth and take our place in this life, we must remember that we came here to be caretakers of the Earth, and to bring purpose to our time here.
We must step out of the dimension of division and constantly return to the divine spark that lives in all of us that is connected to the creative forces of the universe which are always shining the song of dismemberment and dissolution as well as the song of rememberment and new creations.
When we step into the dimension of recognizing that there is only oneness, love, light, and lessons for our spiritual growth we can be held by a state of inner peace within.
But we must let go of fear, self-hate, division, and hyper-vigilance. We need to ground to the land and feel the land supporting us for that is the real support we need. We need the support of all the elements who have been here for billions of years and have been through and contributed to the storms of change that we have been going through since life began on this Earth.
Nothing changes until it changes within you.
So as we move into the Winter Solstice and to the end of this year, take time to re-connect with what is important to you. Re-connect with your goals, desires, and dreams. Re-connect with your body and take time to check in with how you are feeling. Re-connect with your what brings you joy and pleasure.
Do you need to just rest and let go of doing anything? There has to be a period of rest before a period of growth, or you won’t have the energy for the next stage of growth which can cause a level of physical suffering.
We have to learn new ways of living on this planet and with our fellow humans and nature beings. For our old way of life is simply gone. It does not exist anymore. And do you need time to grieve this before moving on?
Take some time this month and tune into yourself and tune out the media as well as social media. Use this time to learn about yourself and what your current needs are and make plans to have those needs met.
Some people are making choices in this world that are not loving, compassionate or kind. But for now, we have to focus on the work we are doing and seeing what part of our Inner World, our soul, body, heart, and mind might need some tending to right now. Stay with the focus and growth will happen, and you won’t regret following where the river of life is taking you too.
Sometimes the goals we set for ourselves are merely indicators of the need for change and are useful in getting us moving in the right direction. But it is possible that once we try out what seemed so ideal, we may find that it doesn’t actually suit us, or make us feel the way we had hoped. By embarking on the path slowly and with intention, we have the chance to look around and consider other options as we learn and grow. We have time to examine the underlying values of the desire for change and find ways to manifest those feelings, whether it looks exactly like our initial goal or not. Taking small positive steps forward gives us time to adjust and find a secure footing on our new path.
This is a time of deep reflection and rest for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. And it is time for big growth in the Southern Hemisphere. Whatever season you are entering into thinking about this as being a time for regeneration and healing.
2022 we see some exciting personal and spiritual growth development trainings and programs…especially an exciting new program ‘Living Your Yogic Life’ being launched in February 2022. This is something that I have been working on over the last year. The aim is for us to negotiate this new way of living by finding a sense of direction and unity with the powerful tools of the true and full practice of Yoga.
