“…with an open palm she began to listen,
and when it all started to happen she said yes.”
. . .
A new leaf has turned. There is no teacher, other than you, for where you are headed. With only an inner compass to guide you do you now walk the path that has been laid at your feet.
Your words listen to themselves as the echo resounds through the tunnel of change. You are the scribe that deems the terms and conditions of your heart. A new work is in progress, and on its way.
For this phase of the waxing moon it is important for you to recognize the pacing that has come into play for progress. There is much excitement that comes with the New Year. A new plan with new ideas pulls you forward. And while this is what we have all wanted it is also necessary to honor the phases of you that have come and gone. Blessing each one with a sense of gratitude.
As you move forward it is wise to consider how to optimize these past experiences into new forms of energy for the next steps ahead. The duty of this time, the substance that holds it all together, is your commitment. Though you may feel vulnerable in the beginning, the position you take within your heart is the crucial ingredient for success.
Gently remember how you have gotten stuck in the past, how a certain frame of mind set limits to what you thought was possible. Bring a soothing light to those situations/relationships and let them go with forgiveness. The effort you will need now is to shift less optimal patterns for newly identified roles that in the end will benefit you and serve the desired outcome. Supporting you at the level of your highest gifts.
Trust the process. Trust your Self.
Sometimes when we are still making the transition we can miss the value of nuance. Notice the details that capture your imagination within the phases less familiar (or unknown) to you. Instead of dismissing your courage, move from what is all too familiar towards your own newborn state of curiosity.
When moving into the next forthcoming dimension of ourselves we must be willing, to some degree, to shed the rigidity of our pre-conceived ideas and travel the distance of what we do not (already) know.
In this way we innocently become our own truest ally and most dear companion. Loving ourselves through the missteps while cheering ourselves on as we bravely take the next step into the slightly varied and newly invigorated unknown.
