Archive for the ‘NewYear’ Category

I began writing a post early this morning, but was having diffculty putting my thoughts down “on paper”, so took a break to check my e-mails. What is written below, was lovingly sent my way by the Universe. Understandings I’ve reached over the past year but was having difficulty putting into words to pass along. To make my life easier and to help bring these new thoughts along to all of you, I was provided with the post below. I DO NOT receive regular mails from this source, so was surprised to see it, but as we all know, we are always provided with what we need when the time is right. A wonderful New Year to all of you!

The physical world around us may feel intense and chaotic at times as life itself unfolds. What seemed impossible, what seemed unexpected, becomes miraculous. The key to walking through all is to remain fearless. Being fearless does not mean there is no fear; it means walking with unconditional love and acceptance calmly and peacefully in spite of fear.

Agitation arises, conflicts occur, however if we remain steadfast in our spirit truth we will not be swayed from the perpetual peace within us. Remember too that when we do invariably find ourselves in conflict, if we cooperate and co-create solutions rather than blame, peace and harmony will return quickly.

Anytime one expands and explores, it is unfamiliar, a new beginning, a new chapter full of the unknown. We must resist the ego’s desire to revert into the known and experience the expansion fully. If we allow the experience of expansion, we transform into a beautiful new reality. With all shifts, be it a small behavior or a critical mass shift in awareness, the appearance will always be that of chaos and destruction. The only way to make room for new is to let go of the old. The stabilization of reality comes from this transformation process. Expansion requires us to be patient and unconditionally loving and accepting always. Quick reaction rather than contemplative movement will create further imbalance within us. When we trust our own inner spiritual guidance and remain open to the energy of unconditional love and acceptance, we will find it permeates all things in our reality. It just takes time.

This expansion is not only for our personal awareness and for growth; the collective energy is shifting the global awareness and growth. The world is birthing a new reality just as we are. Each one of us must answer the call for ourselves. Each person’s spiritual truth must be declared with conviction. Our active participation is vital for our new reality to finish its birthing process.

As we move into this New Year, the temptation to retract and hide will pulsate strongly to constrain the masses in fear. While many have cut the constraints that bind, if we do not actively participate in the new higher frequency energies, the constraints will return. Active participation does not mean to jump off into the unknown, it means to consciously take one step at a time, always staying in the moment. We must remain balanced in all that we do. Self-discipline and self-mastery are vital to understanding the expansive nature of a new reality. Otherwise, we may become lost in the confusion and chaos. Clarity always comes from within.
The mindful contemplation of all things – this is where the active participation is birthed. When we act from this stillness, our spirit is guided by our truth.

Nothing will be forced, manipulated or cracked. It is a soft nudging, a gentle flow of energy as though we are floating down the stream of energy. Yes, there may appear to be rapids from the chaos. There may appear to be obstacles and rocks in our path, yet, if we will still our mind, we will find our spirit truth and return to the flow.

We must remain present in the moment, contemplate the sacredness of life, and maintain our balance within. It is within this call that we will find the freedom of life, the opportunities for expansion, and the miracles of spiritual growth.

May you have a blessed and expansive New Year and may there be peace in your body, mind and spirit!

Peace, Love and Sacred Journey,

You don’t have to be Jewish to use this opportunity. It is simply another chance to journey within and see what we find, explore the inner workings of our soul and try and move forward into a new place. There will always be things which need to be questioned and challenged, and always new ways and opportunities to make profound changes which will help us move forward in our Sacred Contract, our reason for being here.

Let us all pray that we be granted the guidance, clarity and direction we need, as well as the wisdom to understand and perceive the blessings given to us, no matter what form or disguise they may take.

This would be a good time to take a minute and go back and check out the previous post on Living in the Shadow of the Past and the Power of Forgiveness and finding the ways to release all that is no longer necessary or healthy for us in the coming New Year. It would also be a wonderful time to begin doing the forgiveness exercise explained in the post for all those in your life who you still need to forgive. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to discard everything which we do not need to move forward in peace, tranquility, love, laughter and good health. Let’s move out of the Shadow of the Past into a beautiful, sunny and tranquil New Year.

I am now reading a book which I highly recommend to all by Caroline Myss, author of Anatomy of the Spirit and Sacred Contracts. Her latest book is called Invisible Acts of Power-Personal Choices That Create Miracles-quite amazing and highly recommended. I would like to end this post by sharing with you the following quote (pp.58) from the book since it gives amazing insights into many things we have discussed and opens doors to much further thought. If you already know these things, than think about them often. If this is the first time you are encountering these ideas, than think about them deeply and begin to question and contemplate. You will get much joy from understanding the ideas.

  • You are where you are supposed to be and in every moment there is an opportunity to seerve another or to receive support.
  • There are no such things as coincidences or accidents. Look for the meaning in your synchronistic encounters.
  • Any form of assistance you offer is an act of healing.
  • Anything you do for others, as well as the support you receive in your own life, has healing consequences for the whole human community.
  • You will always receive help within a second of a prayer. To recognize the help, you must see everything in your life from that second on as a part of the answer to your prayer.
  • Everything you do consciously is an invisible act of power.SHANA TOVA TO ALL…A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!
