As we move further into the new year of 2021, we must gather our wits and our inner strength and remember who we are. Are you ready to courageously seize the opportunities which are going to present themselves to you this year?
You are a sovereign human being… you are not a human ‘doing’ but a human ‘being’ with a body, a heart, a mind and a soul. These four aspects or pillars must be recognised and nourished in order for you to live a full and successful life; in order for you to live the best version of yourself that you possibly can be. And you can!
The last year has tested all of us… in one way or another. Many people have lost loved ones, lost businesses, lost incomes, lost homes, been separated from friends and family members. Lost precious time that they will never get back. The challenges have come thick and fast and, all too often, just when you are rising to your feet again another blow lands and you feel so overwhelmed that you feel you will never rise again. You will. The world has never experienced anything like this and here we are living through this incredible period in the story of mankind.
It has been well documented that in the Chinese language, the word “crisis” is composed of two characters, one representing danger and the other, opportunity.
I love this interpretation and I feel that it could never be more relevant than now… in this year of 2021.
Within every crisis there resides the seeds of opportunity. The current global crisis is no exception. In fact, if you just stop for a moment and have a look at your life over the last year you will see that you have invoked this idea on many, many occasions. You may have had to be strong for someone who is normally strong for you. You may have had to be innovative in ways to earn money, pay your bills, feed your family, home-school your kids. You may have had to learn to live without things that you thought you never possibly could or you may have found yourself in circumstances which have forced you to learn new skills, update old ones or change direction altogether.
I believe that the world has been undergoing a monumental shift, a rebirth. I would even say a rescue mission… rescuing mankind from ever increasing darkness and bringing us forth into light. Into remembering who we really are, our true worth, creating a new world of love, respect and joy for our children and grandchildren. Birthing is never an easy process… the mother needs love and support and the baby needs to keep travelling down through the darkness of the birth canal in order to enter the glorious light of the world and into the arms of love and security. Breathing is essential as is belief in the outcome and the understanding that upheaval is a necessary part and parcel of the experience.
And, so it is with our wonderful world at this time.
The crisis may be raging but still the seeds are growing. Those seeds are growing into the opportunities for your future. Are you willing to recognise them, water them and encourage them to grow? The best way is to have no expectations but to listen to your heart and your intuition. The energy of upheaval raises our vibrations and we become much more sensitive to everything. We are on alert. This can manifest as fear but with some self-work and inner healing we can transmute fear into love. Remember that fear is nothing more than ‘false expectations appearing real’ and once we can see that, we simply choose ‘love over everything’ instead. It is a change in perspective and one that will transform your life and inspire those around you.
Get creative and start with yourself. Think about the things that you love to do just for the sake of doing them. That you can teach your children or create an extra income from. Reawaken your dreams and imagine them being part of and shaping your daily life. Those seeds are just waiting for you to recognise them and start bringing them to fruition.
You are a created being and so you are a creative being and now you have the greatest opportunity ever to create your best life taking small steps and growing slowly and steadily into the person you were created to be.
It is important to be very clear about how you want your future to look and to have clarity and awareness on where you want to go. It does not have to be complicated – simple is often the best. It is about being rather than doing.
Opportunities come in many guises and you must be of open mind and raised awareness in order to recognise them when they come calling. Be watchful and aware of everything happening around you and remain motivated so that when you are ready to take action you will move fearlessly and courageously. There will be setbacks… treat them as opportunities to reach higher.
Stay calm and centred, confident and in control. When you do this, you will always walk in your invisible power from your heart centre. You will grow in self respect and remain true to your highest self.
Just do it… and have a wonderful year!
