2018 is coming to an end and for some of us it can't come fast enough. See ya later 2018, don't let the door hit you on the way out. It was definitely a shake-up kind of year with plenty of disruptions on both the personal and global levels. But as always, there's divine perfection in the chaos and a reason for all the events in our lives.
New beginnings and new endings represent the cyclical nature of our lives, something to be honored and acknowledged when the time is right. They both hold something bittersweet for us, something that reminds us of the impermanence of everything and at the same time that we are always evolving and growing.
As we close out the year, it's important to take some thoughtful time to complete and integrate our spiritual lessons in this Earth School so we can fully engage in a new cycle of creative rebirth in 2019. If we can let go of the energetic dead weight from the past, we clear space for inspiration, clarity and new opportunities to enter our field of potentiality. Bringing awareness to what's trying to be resolved in the deeper, subconscious realm will lead us to the healing integration we are seeking in order to move powerfully forward into expressing our greatest potential.
To consciously end your 2018, take out your journal, center yourself with meditation and a quiet space, and then answer the following questions:
1) Identify 3 things in your life that are trying to end. What feelings come up when you think about letting go of these things? Resistance, fear, excitement, sadness, etc. Name them specifically. Let them speak to you on their terms, fully expressed.
2) What choices must be made in order to ensure the completion of these endings? Are there new self-care or boundaries needed to be put in place?
3) Is a new theme(s) trying to emerge in your life? Are you excited for your new creative beginning(s) or does fear come up?
4) Write down the greatest vision you have for yourself in 2019 including how you want to feel, what you’d like to experience, and what kind of person you’d like to become. What choices can you make to begin aligning yourself with this vision?
