Transitions can feel uncomfortable. We haven't left the Bush parallel and are not quite in the Obama one. This has a destabilizing effect, causing the stock market to continue its roller coaster ride and the government to keep on throwing huge sums money at corporate bailouts. People are scared and don't know what will happen.
Treasury Secretary Paulson is a good example of this, changing his mind constantly about what to do about the economy. All of this can seem weird and irrational, and yet it will continue. Notice if your instinctive center is a bit jumpy about what Bush is doing before he leaves. He intends on creating karma on his way out the door, and you may be sensing it. He represents a dying, oil-based paradigm,which won't let go of its power hold without putting up a fight.
At a spiritual level, however, powerful changes are taking place with the breakdown of systems that no longer work to clear the path for innovative ways of being. One theme for 2009: Don't just think outside the box, let go of the box completely.
Tools for Transition: Gratitude, Adaptability, Creativity
As corny as it sounds, gratitude will take you a long way in manifesting your needs in these difficult times. Under the laws of attraction, gratitude is an energy that attracts love, healing, and abundance. Close your eyes and take a moment to be thankful for all have,your health, your beautiful home, all those you love, those that love you, your furry friends, and the daily
abundance you do experience. Notice what happens to your body and overall peacefulness when you do this exercise. Ask your guides and higher self for what you want from this place of peace and love.
We will continue to make adjustments in this instinctive year in preparation for a new cycle of being on this planet. Rigid adherence to the way it was and attachment to form will cause suffering. Learn to adapt to the global and economic changes by being creative. If you lost your job in the real estate market, discern what talents and strengths you have that can be applied to another industry. Even if it is only temporary, it may give you the stability you need.
Make adjustments in your lifestyle in order to keep financially afloat. Get rid of your cable TV and spend more time with friends or reading. Some of you may find this is the perfect time to go back to school and complete a degree or learn a trade. Call upon your spirit guides and physical plane pals for support. Trade your services to get what you want. If necessary, get a business coach or a job placement counselor. Whatever you are attached to, try letting go, keep an open mind and another door will open. As older souls, you have been through much worse. Do you remember the Plague or the Inquisition? Do you remember how cold it was and how much disease there was in your past lives? You can do this.
·As a reminder, the instinctive year is still putting pressure on everyone to make changes at the deepest levels of your being. Take time to observe what you are currently working on. Acknowledge how much you have shifted this year and make a list so you can look at it. Include all accomplishments you have made spiritually, emotionally, financially, physically, with your health, and more. Take time to appreciate yourself for all you have done. Great ritual for a New Years Celebration!
·The early part of December brings inspirational energies, which make it an ideal time to tune into the visions of possibilities for the upcoming year. Connect with your higher self and ask to be shown. Make a plan.
·Also, pay attention to the desire to overspend or overextend during this time. Be practical, grounded and deliberate with your resources.
·By mid-month, watch out for irritability and a flaring of tempers. This is in part due to the current economic upheaval we are all going through, which causes people to feel frightened and out of control. Most people act out their fear through anger and aggression. Deal with your fears constructively exercise, talk about them, seek healing support and be alert not to take on the projected anger of others. Take responsibility for yourself; foster cooperation and compassion.
·Overall, December favors being with your “spiritual family” or DNA family members who make you feel loved and appreciated. It’s time to nurture yourself by stocking up on healthy comfort foods, cuddling up with pets, enjoying intimate get-togethers with like-minded pals, snuggling in bed with a good book, and other nourishing activities. Be kind and loving to yourself and let go of self-criticism. Let yourself have some fun! This will build your energy, or chi, which you will need in the extreme next year.
·By the end of the month, you may experience heaviness as the incoming energies on 2009 start merging. Next year has a low frequency, a plodding pace and may feel like you are walking through molasses. If you took the time to nourish yourself in December, you will be thankful that you did come 2009.
Welcome to Global Wisdom. My name is Holly Coleman. I founded Global Wisdom with a simple intention: to help people connect to Spirit, Self and Nature.
Connecting to nature has been invaluable to my own inner work and years of spiritual practice. You can’t be connected with your authentic self and not be connected to every thing. Tuning into Mother Nature and all her beauty is essential to staying grounded, present and balanced. By connecting to this energy, whether you find it in a leaf, a ladybug, a kind word, a mountain or the Milky Way, you can reclaim a sense of inner peace. To restore your trust in the universe, you need go no farther than your own backyard.
So often we get caught up in everyday life and lose our way. We get confused and frustrated and forget we are spiritual beings on a spiritual path in a human body. Awakening to your authentic self and aligning with nature reminds you of who you really are, what you care about and your true purpose.
Spend time in Nature, connect to Spirit, to your body and to your true Self. Tune in to the vast wisdom that surrounds you. Think globally, act compassionately and connect locally!
