Happy New Year!
What a year 2016 was! A defining year! And much of what was started (its probably more correct to say ‘released’) in 2016 continues on through most of 2017, both for ourselves, and also globally. It will continue to be what I call a ‘Teflon’ year through to October, where try as we might nothing much ‘sticks.’ It feels like seeds we are planting are constantly blowing away in the wind.
There is a reason for this so-called Teflon energy, and maybe with hindsight we wouldn’t want most things to ‘stick.’ There is a birthing process going on within us that is underneath all this chaos. Remember that the areas that are challenging us most are always the greatest opportunity for inner growth. The area that is most challenging for much of 2017 is relationships – any form of relationship, friendship, lovers, child/parent, work relationships. The area in relationships that is challenging is communication. We are all ready for an update, or reset in regard to how we communicate and relate to one another. Words have consequence. As does thoughts. There needs to be more understanding, listening, respect, and appreciation of one another. It would be nice if it were the Year of Tenderness.
Today, could be ‘Tenderness Day,’ as it is January 6, and is Magi Day (Epiphany), the day when the three Magi (magician/astrologers) or Wise Men, came and gave gifts to baby Jesus. Babies evoke tenderness from us, why does it change?
How would your IAM communicate? Yes… lovingly.
We are (humanity) at a crossroads. It really is time to wake up, before its too late. This is especially true with regard to all our global issues, whose effects eventually trickle down to our individual lives. Global issues like climate change, ongoing conflicts and wars, the gap between the wealthy and the rest of us, the nuclear threat being ratcheted up, the possible extinction of many animals and so on. What is the world, our world becoming?
As we move into this new year, many do so with trepidation, there is great apprehension for the year ahead, what will a Trump presidency look like and how will his policies effect the world, will Brexit help unravel the European Union, who will be the Heads of State by the end of the year? Our fate is in their hands. Or is it?
The theme of change continues in earnest in 2017, there will be much uncertainty, expect many surprises, some shocks, and often a feeling of ‘phoniness’ a feeling of this can’t be real, can’t be happening.
It will be a political vortex, causing even more polarization. With no space between to amble, explore, research, play… unless you claim it.
Identity chaos will continue, mostly borne out of the over-identification with the digital world. Its time to bring balance to this, and get back into your body, especially for young people.
It will indeed be an unprecedented year.
2017 also sees many lessons for us around power; the correct use of power, and the realization that you as an individual are not powerless. Events will this year, as with many previous years, make you feel powerless – what can I do? You can consciously claim your power, and embrace your IAMness. Your love helps. Your presence helps. We can have peaceful uncertainty.
When there is collectively profound anxiety and deep concern within, some may express this overtly by an extreme need to ‘stay in control’ at all times, this manifests as controlling behaviour. And extremes of ‘we are right, and you are wrong,’ which can lead to conflict. The only one you can control is yourself.
So, power issues will be rampant this year, in relationships, business, government and so on. This is not new, but with our ‘new eyes’ we will see it for what it really is.
This year the world may feel like its on the brink of going out of control. Especially, through words, and communication.
2017 is pivotal to our lives; we are going to update our ideas and beliefs about our existence. We are going to step up. We are going to take on the challenges and not drown in our insecurities…we are not using them as an excuse any more.
There is potential for collective awakening, especially around the issues of power, male ego and communication. You will receive profound revelations; make sure you write them down as they disappear quickly if you don’t (this is because they come from other dimensions, and if they are not written down, they evaporate quickly).
Every time it might feel a bit tough, or you feel lost, or angry, or powerless, ask yourself this question:
“ Is my IAM (at the centre of my being) alright?”
Check in with your IAM often, your IAM is never lost, shattered, angry, tired, powerless, and if it is then it is not your IAM. This is essential survival for the year ahead. Your IAM is your divine self, use it wisely.
I AM LIGHT
And say often, ‘I LIVE IN A LOVING WORLD.’ And so shall it be.
