Well 2012 has flown by and it's almost the New Year. I look back on 2012 with relief its over. Lots of emotional struggles for me this year and many changes. Same for my friends and family. And the World. Its because we are in what I call the "pool"...like a big pot of soup, we all sit in the same energy together and it affects our lives, our emotions, our sense of self, our connection to God. We are in this together whether we like it or not.
From now until March 2015, the stars are very busy changing us and the world. 2013 may yield a lot of "natural disasters" like earthquakes, fires, floods, etc. Mother Earth has been tormented by us and she will be scratching the fleas and shifting things around, just like we need to make changes and shift. Bend and learn, hold fast and break. It's hard to change, especially as we age. Harder still for fixed signs who just like things the way they are. I am a cat lover and I can tell you they like things just the way they are and when you move stuff around they get curious and cranky at the same time if the changes don't meet with their approval. Its time for us all to open our minds to the new. See things we've missed until now. Look at things from a different angle. Sit on a hill or a high rise and look down on your town or city and reflect. Think about the world and how you can make it a better place by being a better person. Every time you make a loving gesture, the "pool" radiates more good energy to vanquish the negative. Be a magician and pour your good will fairy dust everywhere you can. You really can make things better by being more loving and kind.
I had lunch with a dear friend yesterday and we ended up spending 9 hours together talking about everything under the sun, including the state of the world. Politics right now can be so depressing. Its hard to picture a sane person in DC or Wall Street. They are just so out of touch with the world, and live in their isolated bubble of privilege and power and appear to have decided that looking down on We The People is an OK thing to do. I am sure Thomas Jefferson is up in heaven shaking his fists. I know for me it is often so hard to imagine a better world when such selfish people are running things. So what can we do? I don't have billions to fight them, and I bet you don't either. But we DO have power, and its hard to remember that in this world in such turmoil right now. Up is down and down is up for sure.
But the real power is with the Universe. This place is his/her making and their love can do ANYTHING if we BELIEVE. So Monday night when you raise your glass at midnight, thank the universe for life itself. Ask to bless the world and everyone in it. And each and everyday in this new year, ask "God" to help us manifest a world of love and caring for one another, and to help warm the hearts of the cold and callous and make this place the heaven on earth it is supposed to be. God bless us everyone and best wishes to you all for a fascinating New Year.
