Reflecting back on the past twelve months, it’s as if I’ve lived a decade of lessons. To call 2015 a roller coaster ride would be an understatement. If it were a rollercoaster ride it was one thru a fun house of illusion. Just when I thought I was past the worst of the twists and turns, another upside down loop at break neck speeds approached.
Everything from how I relate to myself, the world and my close relationships has shifted. Through health crisis to emotional crisis, I’ve come to realize how much I’ve grown. Facing hidden fears, old mental programs and beliefs was a major theme. Perseverance, courage, compassion and inner strength, emerged on levels I didn’t know were possible. I’m known for my bold confidence and tenacity. While I maintained those, I can’t say I didn’t have the war of the century with my inner critic a.k.a. Ego. Hidden self doubt arose in times I needed to trust in myself instead of the opinions of others.
As the year wraps up, I am grateful for all the lessons. I am certain I have evolved to another level of emotional and spiritual understanding. My 48th year around the sun is closing out as I creep up on my 49th birthday. I for one am glad that things are stabilizing, moving forward and looking very promising for 2016.
With a little over 3 weeks remaining in this year, it’s time to take stock of what is being left behind:
· What old beliefs, programs, attachments and even relationships are trying to leave?
· What past event, issue or trauma am I leaving behind?
· Have I completely forgiven myself and others?
All of things I am releasing as I say goodbye to 2015 will be burned in a fire and released. It was an amazing year of crisis and triumph. While 2015 was a year of testing, duality and contrast, I am grateful for the lessons. Now pop that cork and let’s usher in 2016! Are you with me?
