As I sit here in the Bistro on New Year’s Eve contemplating the events of 2016, the past 10 years come to mind.
Lots of changes.
See, I believe we live out several lifetimes within our one lifetime. So, the first few years of your life are one lifetime, then perhaps the next 5 years a separate lifetime or perhaps 15 years, depending on what lessons need to be learned. And, should it be a necessary part of our development we will start over again with another life in order to learn that which we still can’t quite grasp. Or we come again, to fulfill a soul contract by helping another to learn that which they need to.
I feel I am starting a new Journey, the beginning of a new lifetime in 2017. Previously I was everything everyone else wanted me to be. Now I am who I Am but more importantly, who I want to be. I look forward to blossoming even more. The Ram awoke from her slumber.
This year of 2016 has of course been one of endings and new beginnings. But more so a year of putting myself back together again after a tremendous amount of struggle and strain. This past decade I have seen a new life lost as well as that of an old life, new beginnings and endings of loves and lovers too, where only memories remain. Three beautiful souls separated then brought together for short times again and again, and again.
One of the lessons I have learned in this past decade: I AM Strong. I have a ridiculous amount of tenacity with strength of soul, mind and character. Of this I credit my Mother, who always pushed me to be more, do more and never give up. Nothing was ever good enough for her, and I say that in the most loving way. My Mother the Virgo was indeed, a perfectionist. And her love for me was indeed, perfect. And through her love I gained my Strength.
A couple years after two little souls were distanced from me, she gave me one of the most powerful compliments: “You have a Strength I do not know, for I could have not done that. You are far stronger than you know daughter.”
Mom, was right.
Going forward into 2017, I know her Spirit is with and within me, guiding me on my new Journey.
When we are relaxed time dissolves as we are present, centered and at peace. We change the outside view of where we are.
I feel Peace again, and Joy. A feeling of rejuvenation, anticipation, excitement and passion. I am grateful for these.
And now I say to you: Accept where you are without judgement. Let go of the past, let go of that which no longer serves you. Go forward in Faith, Love and Strength this New Year.
May it be one of the best years of your life!
