October is when I start to explore my sacred journey. It’s when I start thinking of what has come together for me this year? What do I want to let go of, what do I want more of. What am I doing to make changes, to open and allow in the new.
At the beginning of this year I decided that I want more community, spiritual partnerships, mystical experiences, peace, harmony…
I wanted what Mary Oliver wrote –
Tell about it
I think I did some of this.
I have moved myself out of fear and into the unknown with trust and faith in the Universe. And glorious miracles have happened.
I have paid more attention to compassion, surrender, love; I have opened to the mystery in a greater, richer way than ever before. I have welcomed new astonishments into my life; I have embraced my oracle cards in a new way, and am now feeling a pull to the Tarot.
I have stepped into my power and am lighting the way.
I have been letting the outrageous out.
With all of this my word for this year was ‘courage’ and courage has certainly been my companion. And so has our heavenly Mother Mary supporting me on my journey.
So now is the time to think about what I want to bring into my life in this next year?
Up to now I thought that ‘courage’ was still such a strong energy that it will continue to be one of my words for next year, but today I got the feeling that It may not be so. Maybe courage is kind of done with me. A couple of weeks ago when I asked the Universe for a word that will carry me for next year, immediately before I could even finish that thought the word ‘health’ popped into my mind. And it’s still with me as a strong energy. So ‘health’ is my word. And I’ll see how honoring health in mind, body and spirit will unfold and reveal itself to me in 2016.
Silence – that is being in silence with myself is something that I crave more of, so this will most definitely carry over to next year. I am now on day 10 of a promise I made to myself of not turning on my computer before I spend time in silence every morning. I spend time journal writing every day and I just sit quietly with myself immersed in my own thoughts. There is always plenty of time to be involved with the outside.
Showing up for me – for what I want, for what honors me, for what nourishes me, is a goal I have set for myself for this next year. Being in my power means all of this.
Some of the words that I will carry with me
Of course I’m not complete yet and have more to think of and prepare for my luscious next year, but this is a beginning.
I am open and I allow the Universe to unfold its treasures through me.
And so it is.
How are you honoring yourself? What have you accomplished this year? What do you want for yourself for next year, for 2016?
