Before blogging I had a little meditation session, just to see if there was anything to add to what I was already going to say. A rune came in, and afterwards, when I thought about it, I could see it's a fabulous rune to start the new year with. I was given Wunjo, the rune which stimulates pathways to happiness, unblocking the parts of us that let the good vibes trickle through. Wunjo is about belly laughing, and I was reminded that laughter really is a tonic for us all: it strengthens the heart muscle and makes us feel good. It's infectious too, so we can all spread the joy.
This feels like the best way to leave 2016, because I think in the last few months of last year we were all suffering from what I call, 'The Trump Grump'. Everything seemed pretty hopeless and awful. The year as a whole brought shocking election results and the loss of a whole glut of wonderful beings we were not ready to lose. But when we look at the numerology of 2016, it was a 9 year, and 9 years are always about endings. They're always full of challenging culminations and the ensuing results.
But 2017 is a 1 year, new beginnings, a fresh new page. So, what are you going to write on yours? This is the time to think about what you want to achieve, not just in this year, but in the next cycle of 9. Where do you want to be in 9 years time? Because now is the time to plant the seeds.
Seeds are about potential and intention. In nature, massively complex things grow from the tiniest of seeds, so when planting remember that it doesn't matter how small the gesture, just start making little steps towards what it is you want. Put your seeds in the ground during January and give them a little love and attention everyday and you'll be surprised what manifests. Remember to plant what feeds your heart and nourishes your soul and opens up your pathways to happiness...
