With the end of 2016 almost upon us, I thought I'd share some of my thoughts and reflections on the year that's been. I'm not here to share my achievement or 'failures' because even though as shit and heart wrenching parts of this year have been I know that everything has happened EXACTLY as it was meant to. So instead I wanted to share and highlight some universal truths that have been BIG reminders and lessons for me this year. And through all the heartbreak, pain, suffering , joy, peace and emotional healing I can hand on heart say I am ready to step up, show up and be of service to the world in 2017.
I think the reason why so many people have had a difficult 2016 is because we are completing the end of a 9 year universal cycle. And with that have come many endings in both my life and those around me. With endings come new beginnings and an opportunity for us to rise and create lives which are in true alignment with our most authentic self. While I've spent some time playing with the concept of alignment my intention for 2017 is to go deeper and delve even further into true ALIGNMENT. My intention for 2016 was to find and live in FLOW, something that I feel I have now found, felt and embodied. I'll be sharing more of my experiences with flow in the coming months, and can't wait to share my journey of coming into true alignment.
So here are my thoughts and reflections on some universal truths which have been my biggest lessons for 2016.
Self empowerment comes from making choices and taking inspired action.
As much as I've believed life happens to us, this year again has been a huge reminder that we MUST make choices and take inspired action if we want to progress, create flow and live in alignment with who we have come here to be. You might relate to a time where everything in your life felt right, or maybe not so but then all of a sudden EVERYTHING felt so wrong! When things are no longer serving your highest good, those situations, people, things or experiences will fall away. The more we hold on, fight and resist, the more pain and suffering we experience. I shared more about my experiences in letting go and trusting the universe in a recent post which you can read here. This year has been a huge time of change and a constant process of letting go. I quit my part time job of six years, removed toxic people from my life, got a new car, new phone and in the process of it all found a greater and deeper connection to myself. The more I surrendered to letting go, the easier life felt, and the easier I was able to let go of the attachment I felt I had for all the things I had to let go of. Read More
