May the Force Be With You!!
Updated: January 4, 2016
YAY it’s finally 2016 and I am so ready for a different energy! I love the beginning of a new year don’t you? You can almost taste the hope in the air as the collective energy becomes so palpably alive with new ideas, and deliberate intentions and action plans. It does feel like anything is possible at the beginning of the New Year.
It’s the perfect and precise time to ride the wave of deliberate change into something better, when a more meaningful greater contribution to the whole is possible now. This month a window of opportunity opens to those who have the courage to leave behind the familiar ways of doing things that keep us hostage to ways that don’t work any more. Does sound a tad daunting but there is a surplus of energy we can tap into and it can be intoxicating.
It’s this time of year that unleashes a burst of energy that encourages innovation, transformation, and risk taking, more than any other time of year. It’s up to us to harness the energy, tune into it, and allow it to infuse us with co-creative fuel to make our inspirations real and tangible. Or, at the very least to allow them to download into our consciousness so that our imaginations can begin to ignite and illuminate what’s possible.
When you consider this energy we are all tapping into, its important to know how to work with it, how to hone it, and skillfully apply it to achieve our desires. This Force, right now offers us this concentrated burst of energy intensified by all our desires. Whatever you call it, (Spirit, The Great Mind, The Dude, God, Higher Power etc.) this Force is conscious and needs us to know it and so it requires something of us. It requires our minds to be calm, and receptive, to listen deeply. We need to focus on our intentions, de-clutter our minds, and our hearts, and relinquish the ring- side seats to the cyber-circus of constant distraction, that leave us over-stimulated and over stressed.
Yes that’s right I too have spent too many hours on Face Plant, when I could have been creative etc. Mental noise reduction and dialing down the drama is high on my intention list entering into this New Year.
Do you have a cyber detox list yet? Mine is:- no more gossipy and judgy content, conspiracy chatter, mindless window shopping on Ebay,(among others) and limit my time on social media. BUT I will allow some extra time for cute otters holding hands and good news as cyber medicine booster shots when I need it. I love to read posts by Marianne Williamson, Anne Lamott and others that are smart and inspirational. Discernment is the key as I learn how time is becoming an even more valuable commodity and its important to know where it’s being spent.
I want a clear connection to Spirit and a strong unencumbered commitment to our manifesting partnership. We all need to remember when we’re in alignment with our true Destiny we are co-creators- inspired by a connection to a Higher Power not running on self will alone. I can’t keep that link strong if I’m reading posts by some shaming cyber troll. If we are fortunate to have a choice then we’re accountable to that choice. I have no one but myself to
We all have access to the Force, as they say in Star Wars (OMG go see the new movie!!). Everyone can ignite the Light to dispel darkness. The more Light we shine into our shadows the stronger our Light becomes to co-create miracles, inspired to lay a foundation for a new prosperity and access the power heal the world. Make no mistake- we can’t deny the Dark is also an energy that is insidious, and organized but Light always wins when deliberately focused with strong courageous intention.
Last week I wrote about our Holiday Hardships, which left us with crazy vet bills and a special needs puppy. How everything re focused on the “things that count”. I still have that sense of what’s important but I am clear that I am also in the “I co- create my reality” phase this week and it’s equally important to honor both energies. It’s just that the extremes need to be tempered with flexibility and grace, although I have been known to be the more the bumbling, stumbling, flailing type, once in a while I really get what Flow with a capital “F” is all about. (well more than once in a while actually)
So this week feel and do Flow, think and do Focus. And remember the All is in the Small. May the Force be with you!
Have an awesome co-creative week my friend.
