I get a little twisty with the whole “new year new you” onslaught. While I appreciate the idea and respect goal-setting, I’m not so keen on the POOF DONE GONE SEE YAAAA 2017 mentality.
Do we really gotta set last year on fire in order to move forward?
Short answer: Nerp.
Longer answer: If you’ve been keeping up with my emails (I took last week off because it felt like the right thing), then you know that slow medicine is the most potent magic for me right now — which means that integration and flow are key.
No burning the bridge between 2017 and 2018.
No cutting off of the limb (though starfish is one of my guides this year!).
No rejection or resistance of my journey to this moment.
The 2017 lessons are still simmering. I’m still mining. Yes, I’m feeling the sense of renewal (full moon on Jan.1 plus 2 days in mountain hot springs sure helped), but I’m not done with last year. It’s not done with me.
And that’s ok. I can still move forward while looking back. So can you. We won’t turn into a pillar of salt if we stay here awhile and dance with a wildly rich year that taught us so much about every aspect of our existence.*
I deserve this reflection and to take the time I need to plunge into my own depths.
And look, reflection is not all serious, pensive, crinkled-brow, all-night journaling sessions. Part of reflection is CELEBRATION!
It’s about saying:
- YES I DID THAT AND IT WAS AWESOME or
- YES I DID THAT AND IT WAS HELL BUT I CAME OUT THE OTHER SIDE or
- NO, I DIDN’T DO THAT AND I’M SOOO GLAD or
- NO, I DIDN’T DO THAT AND IT SHOWED ME THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT MY JOURNEY
You get it? You can’t make a wrong choice. And every choice is a big choice. Now THAT is worth honoring, sweets.
>> So to honor the journey and guide you into some celebration, connection with vision, and divine alignment for your next phase, I’m hosting #3 of 5 free, live astro-coaching workshops* TONIGHT with my fave human and intuitive astrologer, Sandy Sitron.
*I guarantee that 2017 was that for you, whether you see it or not.
