I just logged into my website, all set to write an article to open this *New* Year of 2017, feeling into the idea of opening the new year by stating what we are open and willing to give, joyfully, in love to the experience of this year (instead of focusing on what we are going to get – what we want the new year to give us) when two things caught my attention:
1. I’d already written this article, last January!! (at least I’m consistent in my thoughts and practices around opening each new year – or block of time throughout the year – with intention).
If you’d like to read this article, please click the title link “Amplifying Possibility by Removing Your Focus From What You Want the New Year to Give You to *What You Are Willing to Give the New Year*“.
2. The last article I’d written is dated November 16, 2015! Wow. It’s titled “It’s Not Always Easy to Connect to Light, But it is Always Possible“. I spent much of Fall and the beginning of Winter applying this principle.
So, first, it’s good to ‘be back’!
I love sharing my time, energy, skill, presence via Facets of Joy – here on my blog, in my social media forums and spaces and through personal coaching, intuitive soul call card readings and any ecourses or other offerings I share.
I didn’t realize I had temporarily paused so much in my life; in hindsight, I understand how it happened and definitely *why* it happened.
Again, the bulk of it is not my story to tell, but, I am giving full-time support to a loved one in a crisis (and have been since Fall). And in the unfolding of events in that, I am learning how powerful these practices of presence can be, how life-changing fierce love can be and how when we choose to show up, with love, *everything truly is possible*.
In this process I am learning to love myself through each step of life, listen to and follow through with my intuitive knowing even when people in authority disagree with me, and to keep connecting to people and light-filled spaces and activities that amplify the feeling of goodness in my life.
You will see all of this deepening, healing and growing show up in my work throughout this year and likely the next few.
While I was processing all of that, amidst the doings of daily life, there was also much-needed deep rest and lots of ‘just’ being. And, in that, there was peace – whole-body peace – that wove it’s way through each area of my life.
And, in that, I re-discovered my passion for spinning magic, dance, hosting small get-togethers in my home. All of this meant that I was plugging in, connecting, during great vulnerability and with a bit of heart-pain – when I would normally have chosen to withdraw until I understood more about where what I was in was going and I had healed a bit of that pain.
I learned (am still learning) so much, and it’s going to be wonderful to share it with you as this year unfolds!!
Let’s “catch up” by starting with today, the first day of this New Year of 2017.
I’ve seen all kinds of posts today talking about how the numerological energy of this year is a 1 (meaning new beginnings, re-birth, and renewal). 2017: 2+0+1+7=10. 10: 1+0=1.
New beginnings. Great manifesting energy. And all of the feelings you associate with new beginnings and manifesting.
Understandably, some people have associations that make them skittish about new beginnings while others have associations that make them excited about new beginnings. And it’s not an ‘either/or’ kind of thing – you might be feeling the spectrum of it all.
Whatever you are feeling is okay and I ask that you consider doing some inner work to understand what you are feeling and why you are feeling it, instead of judging yourself for it.
And, if you are excited, please remember that is awesome, marvelous, wonderful!!! Share that with world, in all of the ways that you wish, if that’s how you are feeling (even if – especially if – those around you are feeling differently).
Just, let’s all understand that how we are feeling isn’t ‘right or wrong’.
And how we feel doesn’t make us ‘better or less than’ another who feels differently.
How I am Feeling and What I’m Focusing On (You May Join Me in this Focus if You Wish)
While I’m so glad to ‘turn the page’ and experience newness, I also recognize (based on the unfolding of Fall’s events in my life) that doors might open to something that doesn’t feel the best, or isn’t what I wanted; just as easily doors might open to something that feels amazing and good and is *exactly what I’ve been working toward/wishing for”.
I’m going to love myself through the unfolding of each day and I’m going to stay connected to source energy, using practices that are familiar and comfortable to me and exploring new practices (because I know if I ‘want to experience new results, I need to take new actions’).
All I truly have control over is how I feel and what I choose to focus on as doors open (and close) and what I choose to create with the variables I am given (and drawing in).
I don’t have control over ‘what this year is going to give me’. I do have control over how I feel as this year unfolds.
So, I am choosing to focus my attention on what I am willing and able to bring into this moment – as far as presence, skill, open-heartedness, faith, etc. – and what I can create with it in this moment.
The ‘magic’ happens when I show up and source energy meets me. So, I’m going to do my part in being present and I’m going to trust that source will flow in possibility, blessings, delightful synchronicity, clear signs and lovely guides.
With That, To Celebrate this New Year, I Will Pull an Intuitive Soul Call Card For You, if You’d Like One
I am loving sharing energy, clarity and heart guidance through the intuitive soul call cards!
I like the feel of the words in the cards and I like the accuracy when I pull them for myself or a client.
Since I am all about following threads of love and joy in my life, you’ll see these intuitive soul call cards show up in most of my offerings in some way.
For today, I am offering to pull an intuitive soul call card for you. Since you can be reading this any day the blog exists, today = now through Monday January 2, 2017 11p (pacific time).
If you would like me to pull one intuitive soul call card for you to feel into and use this week, this month, whatever block of time you’d like, please just leave a ‘yes, please, pull one intuitive soul call card for me’ request in the comments below. Each person who leaves a comment (by the ‘deadline’ above) will receive their own card. I will post the card and any insights along with it, in a response comment to you.
If you like the feel of the cards and the guidance you receive (either from this, or if you’ve previously had a reading with me), you might be interested in a 2017 Year-Overview Reading – available to purchase through January 31, 2017).
Dear Reader: Two things: If you’d like me to pull one intuitive soul call card for you, let me know in the comments below.
And, as you consider what you’d like to give this new year (what you are willing to be present with as this year unfolds), I invite you to share your answer in the comments below (because we are each inspired when you share and your voice matters to this conversation!).
So much love to you and blessings as you begin feeling into, and experiencing, this new year!!
