We’re post-”end of the world” according to interpretations of the Mayan calendar, so isn’t now potentially the beginning of a whole new life for our Mama Earth? And for all of us?
It’s true that every moment is new. If we really want to, we can cast off the old and worn to embrace the new any time. But with the pages of the calendar turning right now–big time–and the whole world sharing this transitional moment, why not enjoy riding this wave of transformational energy toward your own personal fresh start?
I’m extremely fortunate to work with amazing women from all over the world for Ayurvedic healing and self-understanding. Yesterday, the delightful young woman I met with said, “2012 was so incredibly hard, but I’ve noticed lots of people are starting to do really significant personal growth work. I think a lot of us are truly ready to just get real! So I’m sure 2013 is going to be a great year!”
I just loved her comment. 2012 WAS a really challenging year, but each and every challenge met taught me much, and strengthened me in so many ways. I’m so much stronger now, and deeply grateful for the support and nourishment the times of need had me allow into my life.
2013? It can be a great year – no matter how challenging –because many of us are letting go of naive demands that life be easy and sweet in the exact ways we are expecting. Instead of spending our energy in worry, fear, avoidance and judging what life brings us, we are learning to enjoy showing up for what is real.
We’re learning to relish the “burn” we feel when we “build muscle” – our inner strength and command of our attention – so we can truly meet the moment, day after day, with all that we are. This kind of living rewards us greatly–but also requires much from our bodies and minds, so we are learning to take care of ourselves. We’re not taking on burdens that don’t belong to us anymore. Or those that don’t serve us, our Mother Earth, or anyone–really–in the end.
Whether 2013 brings you difficult choices or sacrifices, or a need to stretch yourself to accept uncanny abundance (likely both!) –you have a fresh start today at engaging a deep contentment, a natural fulfillment–a life satisfaction–that you may not have even known to yearn for until now.
I wish you the VERY BEST year of your life, starting now. My faith and support are with you. If you’re reading this, know that–in spirit–I’m in the trenches with you if the going gets rough. And when you’ve made it to the top of the next hill, enjoying the view, I celebrate with you in spirit too!
I’d love to hear what you learned in 2013– about caring for your body or mind and rising to challenges–how you got stronger–and what you’re opening up to in 2013. Would love to have your comment…!
