“The only constant is change.” I am sure you’ve heard that before, and in this time of accelerating change this is more true than ever before.
Today marks the end of the calendar year of 2014 and, right after the Winter Solstice, we stand on the threshold of a new year emerging.
This is the end of an era in my own life.
Every major aspect of my life is changing. I’ve seen and felt it coming. So many different emotions: I’ve fought it, resigned myself to it, prayed for support and resolution.
As I relaxed my vice-grip on what was, I received the unexpected blessings of angels, found a place of peace, and now . . .
. . . I feel the edges of a new era, excitement stirs within me, and I feel beckoned forward.
The future is calling me. Now I can hear it . . . and the sound is sweet.
This evening I will take my writings that review 2014 – the surprises, disappointments, yes and even the accomplishments – and I will burn them ritually to release this era.
I will take with me only the learnings. The harvest. And compost everything else.
I encourage you to do the same for yourself, and your year.
Keep the learnings – compost the rest.
Come next year, I will be writing to you less frequently and in a different format. I will experiment with the form and ways in which I reach out – but do not worry, I will not disappear – I am only transforming . . .
Time for a new painting . . . I will share her with you when it’s time.
Your turn. A few questions to get you started, if you need:
- What will you do to bring in the New Year?
- What ritual will support you?
- What are you making way for?
- How is your future calling you forth?
