Greetings, my dear followers! And Happy New Year !
You may be wondering why I am so late to wish you a Happy New Year since we've already entered the month of February, however it was Chinese New Year just a few days ago (Jan 28th) and for those that are familiar with Human Design, the New Year actually started on Jan 22nd, which is when our splendid Sun lands on Gate 41 - The gate of dreaming and fantasy.
I won't go into details about Human Design in this post, however I will share here that Gate 41 is "the pressure to feel, imagine, and find the missing experience that will bring about a sense of completion and wholeness. It is the energy to have a new experience, feeling or idea and bring it into form. The challenge can be in not getting lost in the fantasy."
For those that would like to learn and explore a bit more about Human Design, I suggest you visit HumanDesignAmerica.com or JovianArchive.com. It's fascinating stuff.
Some of you are probably experiencing the intense energies of 2017, and that's just the beginning of the year. Fear may creep in from time to time, but these times can help bring immense transformation and growth to many of us.
Uncharted territory can be daunting, the uncertainty of the future can leave us feeling a bit scared, especially when important decisions about our nation and the world are left in the hands of leaders with lack of compassion for others.
However, I write this blog post with an intention to remind you that you also have your inner strength, wisdom and power to contribute to changes in this world, whether you have already realized that or not, and although we may sometimes feel powerless and that our small actions don't matter, please know that they do matter and your gifts are needed.
The collective agreement has influence in our lives, but we as an individual also have influence on the collective, so what we do, say, and think affect our daily lives, therefore it can affect others around us.
Please allow yourself the time to retreat and reflect. How have your experiences shaped you into the person you are today? How can your knowledge and wisdom be used to assist others in need, or that are going through situations you have gone through before? What are your strengths and gifts that you would like to share with the world?
We are not here to prove ourselves to anyone, but we can be more open to discovering who we are and what we want to do with this precious life.
This is a great time for sharing and discussing ideas with others. We transform by getting closer together with different cultures, different philosophies, different visions, different takes on life, different needs, and then we find value in the synergy that can be created.
As humans we have many similarities, we all (or most of us) want fulfillment and peace, joy and love in our lives. We are having our experience in this planet, in a physical body, and our physical life seeks transformation. This transformation is also about how we respond to the world around us. First, the change must happen within, and that change is projected onto the world, in the way we relate to others and the way we experience life; Our gained inner wisdom can guide us to figure out ways to work with others in our circles and communities, sharing our views and discussing ideas and possibilities, without imposing them on others.
Transformation and change are not always easy. They require work and the willingness to be greater for the sake of those we love and care for (that also includes ourselves).
Once we start the inner work, we may face many challenges and even doubts, some of them will be coming from our own minds, others will be coming from other people or situations, many as a reflection of our strongest beliefs.
And that is why the real work must happen within ourselves first. We must be open to heal our wounds, to face our shadows, to accept our imperfections and to learn to love ourselves so we can extend that love and compassion to others.
I invite you to take some time this month to reflect upon this. Allow yourself to imagine, to dream, to be. Integrate the past experiences and gained knowledge with your dreams for the future. Set intentions that are aligned with your soul, instead of simply setting resolutions that you have no true desire to dedicate yourself to.
Life is here and now. Every day we have the choice to direct our thoughts and intentions, and it's very important that we train ourselves to do that, otherwise we easily get caught up in the turmoil of what is going on in the world.
Allow yourself to take breaks from the news, from the things you have no control over in that moment. Allow yourself to pause and take deep breaths daily. Allow yourself to be here, right now. You deserve that. Be an example for those you wish to influence or inspire.
This is your life. Feel it. Experience it. Own it.
And talking about intentions, I have been wanting to share my Audio Blog outside my website, so I recently created an account on SoundCloud where I will be posting my audio tracks. I invite you to check it out and follow me if you wish. Also please share the link with those that you think could benefit from the messages.
Thank you for your support.
Sending you all much love!
