Every year at this time we are inundated with “Be a New You for the New Year” messages on television and radio. When the calendar flips to the new year life doesn’t magically shift, only we can shift it. And it doesn’t have happen at the beginning of a new year either, every day is a new beginning that offers us new opportunities, if we so choose.
I have a tradition where on NYE I look back over my new moon wishes and my full moon soul work that I wrote out for the entire year. I look at changes, gains, losses and areas of improvement for both my personal life and my business. We can focus on it being negative, but the other side of the coin includes new beginnings, opportunities and edits. Not everything I wrote down on my wish list is something I wish for anymore. The saying, be careful what you wish for is quite true!
his upcoming year be careful using words like should, could, problem, maybe, if only, I wish…. Look at the words that you use in your typical/daily vocabulary, and change them to positive words that you speak and you write. You will find that your energy will shift. Words have power to them. They have energy. When we bad-talk ourselves, we give energy to it. When we good-talk, we give energy to that too. Whatever your dream for 2019 is don’t get caught up on passed years, for instant if you didn’t find your romantic partner then maybe you weren’t in the right vibrational alignment with yourself that could then attract the right partner. The same can be said for job, money, and even health.
So, what is stopping you? Are you afraid of what will happen if you put it in reverse and go down a strange street? Are you afraid of the work, or are you afraid that all your dreams can and will come true? Get on the ride called life, strap yourself in and make the changes that create your best life ever! I believe in YOU!
NEW YEAR ORACLE (Steven Farmer’s Earth Magic):
We all have intuition. Every single one of us. It doesn’t mean that you have to hang up a flashy ‘Psychic’ sign on your office door, but you can if you want. Intuition comes from within us, around us and from past experiences. It is supposed to teach us what to do and where to go and who to trust even if you don’t have the complete road map in front of you. It is that turn-by-turn direction that we all have, but we doubt and create false scenarios in our head, especially if there is a lot of grey around us. It makes it easier to point fingers at others than to own the burden of responsibility. And yet when we get burned, we punish ourselves because we knew. When a knowing can’t be explained, we instead attempt to rationalize it. Below are 6 oracle cards. The back’s are all the same, but by using your intuition, choose one of the cards that calls most to you. Take a deep breathe in and out. Don’t second guess yourself.
What card did you choose?
CARD 1 – CRYSTAL – FOCUS – “It is time to bring your complete focus to the subject of your inquiry. Eliminate all distractions, and give this your undivided attention. Whether this is a project, relationship, or simply a relaxing time spent walking in nature, be fully present to the situation. This sharpening of focus will expand your awareness and allow your inner guidance to penetrate your consciousness, which can then be parlayed into appropriate action.
By being focused with crystal clarity, you are in the flow of your life force and, in fact, have become one with it. It is not a hyper-vigilant or tension-filled state, but one of relaxed attention. Keep your eyes, ears, and heart focused on that which you need to pay attention to, and miracles can be created. To paraphrase a fictional elder, “Use the Force” and use it in life-enhancing ways.”
CARD 2 – LOTUS FLOWER – UNFOLDMENT – “Never despair that you are not where you would like to be in your spiritual journey, for you, Dear One, are exactly where you must be. To achieve a higher consciousness, we can work towards raising our vibration, strengthening our connection to ourselves and thus the Divine, and taking time to immerse ourselves in the spiritual practices, such as meditation and yoga that will help us reach the next level. There is no right or wrong; you are on the path that you need to be on. When you open yourself up to be receptive; slowing down is actually key. Breathing, feeling, listening and watching for signs, messages and synchronicity in your life. Expanding your horizons by opening yourself to learning experiences and reaching out past your comfort zone to meet new people, you will activate the law of attraction and start to manifest your dreams.Stay in constant contact with your angels and the Divine. Live in a constant state of gratitude. Breathe fresh air, listen to the birds, enjoy the company of your loved ones. Take a break from technology and play with a pet or child. Take a sea salt bath with your favorite crystals. Find joy in the mundane, and you will find within it, the key to infinite possibility.”
CARD 3 – DAWN – NEW BEGINNINGS – “This is a time to say farewell to the old and honor the new by releasing any self-imposed constraints or resistance to the truth that you know. This is your chance to develop that project you have been thinking about, embark on that adventure you have dreamed of going on, and take risks in initiating what you intuitive self has been telling you to do.
As this prospect becomes increasingly visible and real, doubts and uncertainties may arise. But rest assured – just as dawn inevitably turns into day, by heeding your inner guidance, you will succeed.”
CARD 4 – MILKY WAY – PERSPECTIVE – “You have lost your perspective, so it is time to step back, breathe, and allow yourself to detach in order to gather information from you senses and regain you perspective about the situation. Detachment does not mean that you no longer care – it simply indicates that you are looking at things from a different point of view. It is an outlook that is not clouded by emotions, judgement, or attachment to outcome, but instead maintains a nonreactive awareness of these things.
The Witness, that internal aspect of yourself that simply observes everything in your life, offers his or her eyes here. Through these lenses of pure awareness, you can examine all aspects of your experiences – physical, emotional, and mental – without denying anything. By doing so, you will come to understand a greater perspective than is typically justified by the ego, which allows you to see what is before you with clear vision and an open mind.”
When you step away from the drama of your own issues, you gain a new perspective. When you see the world with a broader vision, you realize that we are all connected, no one is alone and we are all full of infinite love and possibility. Take this opportunity to see the patterns and where they come from. Ask for help in changing them to create harmony and balance in your life. Cut the cords to unnecessary relationship strains on your energy.
CARD 5 – RAINBOW – BLESSINGS – The storm has passed, and it is time to enjoy the refreshing beauty of this cycle, even though it has been difficult to appreciate any sense of purposefulness in what you have endured lately. You can now, as they say, count your blessings. Do not just look at the “brighter side” adhering to some academic mantra that has no heart or depth, but do so slowly and with genuine gratitude that is expressed up close and personal.
This ever-evolving process of Life itself is a blessing – and opportunity to exist as a human being on Earth. The planet is a beautiful garden, even if it does not always appear to be so. Sometimes it is only when you look back at a memory of an experience that you can truly see the blessings that have come from them. Bless your difficult or painful experiences and let them go.”
CARD 6 – FIRE – PASSION – “Passion is igniting within you. It is not a time when things will remain still, even if the change is only sensed as a subtle stirring, underneath the surface of things. Even if slow at first, passion will unfold from within your heart, soon to be burning bright like a sun, unrestrained.
You are learning how to ride waves of passion. Through eruptions of heat and descent into coolness, bearing the absence of fire, only to realize it is returning to you again. Ride its waves, knowing that passionate bliss will always return to a heart that is on fire with love for life. The coolness allows us to experience the heat. Once you realize that the fire is obvious, drawing you into live, or dwelling quietly within, gaining power from the deepest sources of your being, soon to rise once more, it is a constant in your heart. Accept the fire of your heart and know that this is how you are meant to be – on fire with love for all that is.
This oracle brings a message for you – trust the passion and the fire of your heart to guide your decisions now. What would make you feel most alive? Choose that. If you are feeling a lack of genuine passion in your life, take comfort that it is awakening in your own heart now, bringing something that has been long in rest, back to life.”
So on the end of 2018 we all have the ability to look back and mourn, or look forward with glee. I wish you an amazing 2019.
