2017 has been a year of challenges for many. People have lost loved ones. Society seems to have abandoned us. Culture appears aggressive and shameless. Yes, loads of negativity unleashed, so to speak and some will vouch for it. My life as I knew it has changed forever too. I lost loved ones. I lost the old me. You see midway during this year I realized how my fears and anxiety were holding me back. My resistance to changes was pulling me into a vortex of the 2017 negativity most were experiencing/talking about. During meditation when I consciously allowed myself to make the connection to this amazing year of changes, I began challenging my old narrative, the old belief system I had long outgrown. Today I not only feel positive about the future, I am presently manifesting what I had in the past perceived to be my future. You see I took the raging bull by its horn and stared into it's eyes and said, “lets do this together”. I went with the flow. I stayed grounded and connected to my intuition. I expanded myself with self-love and compassion. I extended my circle of positivism with new friendships and healthy relationships. I integrated old traditions with new knowledge. Most importantly I accepted myself!
Giving myself permission to let go and to be my core authentic self helps me process my life’s journey and appreciate the lessons that came along with it. Now that I feel I’m enlightened will I be making mistakes in 2018? Sure, I will. After all, I am Spirit experiencing a human life. That’s what I signed up for in this lifetime.
What about you? How do you perceive your 2018 to be?
I wish you courage to grab the bull by its horn as you learn to BE your true authentic self.
