It's not that the challenges will be any less this year, more that my spirit actually wants to face them.
2015 for me, at least in the first half of the year was a process of stepping back, as if I needed to take a more detached view of where I was. Certainly my outlook had become very narrowed and limited to the conditions which felt like a straightjacket preventing me moving on.
Everything I did seemed to take a huge amount of effort and show little or no result for that effort. Has it seemed like that for you on occasion? If so you'll understand if I share that some days it became a real struggle to make that effort.
So what's changed? Well for those of us in the holistic and spiritual community there's an increasing acceptance that things are speeding up in terms of our beliefs becoming more mainstream. That the work we have done in the background for many years can begin this year to be seen as we always hoped, in the light.
It took me till the middle of the year to get the fun back in my life and that happened to me through singing. Whatever it takes for you, then I encourage you to go towards it even if it seems scary at first. And sometimes it can seem wrong to enjoy life when others are suffering. But we can empathise but not take on other's suffering. That way we can help more.
As the saying goes, 'the reason angels fly is because they take themselves lightly.'
Here's to more lightness, fun and joy this year
