The Soul of January 2013

bottle1January is of course the first month of the year and therefore Bottle 1, blue over deep magenta.  Bottle 1 is a great kick off for the energies of 2013 because bottle 1 is called Physical Rescue.  The deep magenta in the lower fraction can contain our capacity to access the vibrant red energy.  However, it does require that we look at the things that hold us back.  What are we holding onto from the past? Do we harbour feels of guilt over past actions or maybe we feel unworthy of an easier life.  As you return to work and “normal” life after all the festivities and holidays, try to start afresh. Try to release all of your attachments to the past and move forward into new energies.  If you do not know how to effectively and permanently release your past then I can help you.

AuraSoma bottle7Add one to the total of 2013 and we get Bottle 7.  The Garden of Gethsemene bottle.  Bottle 7 is about trusting in the flow of life and trusting in your own wisdom.  So right from the beginning the first two bottles of the year are calling to you to participate in the energies of 2013.  Try to spend time contemplating your navel, get in touch with what is really going on inside of you.  The good the bad and the ugly!  Time to release what no longer serves you and step into the flow of the new energies of 2013.

Have a great month everyone.

December 2012; End of an Era

I remember the year 2000 with all the hype as we turned over a new century. I also remember at this point thinking only 12 more years to 2012 and the end of an era for Planet Earth.   Back then 12 years away seemed a long time and yet here we now are.  December is also the last month in the Gregorian calendar and so it is the end of our year.  Yesterday on Face Book I saw a post on my feed; 12/12/12 the last time some of us currently alive will ever see a date with triple numbers.   So from many perspectives December 2012 is an ending.  In the continuum of life, endings are of course, also the stage before new beginnings, new opportunities and new energy.

So what does the energies of December 2012 have to offer us all as we go about preparing for year’s end.  December brings into focus the energy of 12 which adds to a three.  This energy has been the backdrop for the whole of 2012.  We will repeatedly experience intense three energy throughout the month of December.  We already had a hit on 3/12/12 (3/3/3) and we will experience this again on 12/12/12 (3/3/3); 21/12/12 (3/3/3) and on 30/12/12 (3/3/3).  Triple threes add to nine, the number of among other things “I am not listening. Talk to the hand”.  It is up to you whether you listen to yourself and what you are trying to tell yourself on these days or not.

bottle3In the Aura-Soma system bottle 3 is called the Atlantean and Heart Bottle.  Atlantean times are of course part of our mythical history.  Atlantis was the time period that marked the last time the Planet went through a change cycle.  For many spiritually inclined December is bringing up deeply held memories of the last time humanity went through a major transition. The energy of three takes us back to our roots not just our ancestral and spiritual roots but also our early childhood roots.  The problem for most in accessing this information is that it does not necessarily come as a vision or words or even an identifiable emotion.  Bottle 3 is the energy of feeling and emotions are just one of the things we can feel.  Most of our emotional patterns are based upon what we feel or don’t feel or more to the point once felt.  Many would rather not feel at all, others feel totally overwhelmed by what they feel.

In our intellectually focused world many believe facts or beliefs are the ultimate truth but the reality is – our feelings are ultimate truth for us.  Most of us have experienced the battle of dominance between their head and their heart.  Whether our feelings are accurate is another thing entirely.  Take the example of how many women believe that they fat based upon the fact that they feel fat.  Are they actually fat? In many cases they are not, but there is no way to convince them otherwise, their feeling is irrefutable evidence to them.  Unfortunately, most of us are driven to do, to have, to behave or whatever else based on the way we feel or how we feel the particular item or person will make us feel.  We go for certain foods based on how they make us feel.  Problem is no amount of food can replace the feel good feelings that we can generate from within ourselves. Smart marketing has always appealed to our feelings or sensory self.

December will be calling us to feel and hopefully for many of you it will be an opportunity to examine your feelings in much the same way you would a thought or belief.  Does this feeling actually serve me?  How am I living out emotional and feeling patterns from my babyhood? For example if you feel betrayed, when was the first time you felt betrayed? Are you now re-living that feeling memory over and over?  In reality once a feeling reality has been experience we tend to re-create that feeling experience over and over.  If you felt unloved as a child, chances are you will still feel unloved now no matter what anyone else does or says. This will also be the case no matter how much you try to convince yourself that you know that someone loves you.  Feelings are our ultimate truth.  We all must be responsible for clearing out the feelings that no longer serve us.  Then we can come into a new way of feeling, a way that enables us to truly nurture ourselves and others.  If you are like most you have no idea how to do this.  I can of course help!

bottle008If we add up the numbers for December 2012 – 12 + 20 + 12 we end with number 8.  In Aura-Soma bottle 8 is called Anubis.  I have spoken about Anubis before back in August.  Anubis was an Egyptian Deity who was responsible for protection of those who had passed over into the otherworld. Anubis was the Deity who help souls cross over from an ending to a new beginning, very pertinent for December 2012 don’t you think?  Anubis was also the Deity who measured your heart to discern the value of your life and the weight of your heart.  The energy of Bottle 8 will help you get to heart of the issues that arise from feeling. Our heart has always been associated with our feelings. During December take the opportunity to discern what is really going on, seeing the truth of one’s own heart and the heart of others.

Finally, December is traditionally considered the season for giving.  Try to dig deep inside and give from within, give from your genuine feelings rather than giving an object that is designed to produce a feeling.  Try not to be so overcome with the silly season of rushing around; caught up in the feelings of frenzied buying. Spend some time to discover how you are really feeling.  The flip side of Bottle 8 is a lack of joy even though your life is going well according to social parameters.

I wish you all a fabulous December and year’s end. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who have eagerly waited for my ramblings each month.  Your support has been greatly appreciated.  I hope that 2013 brings many new beginnings and opportunities.

For those of you who are interested the 21/12/12 is the most accepted date for the actual end of the Mayan Calender and therefore the end of our current planetary cycle.

The Soul of November 2012

The Soul of November 2012

November the last month of spring and here in Adelaide the weather has been very topsy turvy.  We however have not had the disastrous weather that the east coast of America has experienced. November is my birth month and as such is always the beginning of a new cycle. It is also the last month of the year before the silly season really ramps up.  So let’s see what November 2012 has in store, we have 11 plus 20 plus 12 which equals 7.  If you would like to look at the energies of 20 and 12 please check back on my previous posts as these have been constant all year.

Bottle 11 clear over pink is called the Essence Bottle, the catch phrase for this bottle is: “When all else has failed or does not work use bottle 11.” It’s kind of funny when you think many people come to me for help when they are in this exact predicament.   Pink of course calls you back to love and in this particular case love of your soul.  There is always lots of talk about Love from the ‘positive talk community’, everything is love and beautiful.  Love is not only about the good times, it is also about the expression of love and compassion during the difficult times.  From a personal level “can you still love yourself when you act in a certain ways?”  Do you worry about “Will others still love me if they really knew who I was?” These are the questions that plague us all.  Most suffer enormous doubt about whether the answer to these questions will be a resounding YES!  But how many people do you know that truly love themselves and everything about themselves?  The clear in the top fraction of bottle 11 allows the love to flow through.  Sometimes it all becomes too much and we decide i­­t would be easier to shut our hearts down and no longer feel the pain and fear.  In the end this place becomes infinitely worse than what we were running from.  Self doubt about our security and place in love is the greatest inner demon that we all need to face.  Doubt and fear destroys faith and belief in ourselves and November 2012 is primarily about the test of faith in oneself.

Bottle 7 in the Aura-Soma system is yellow over green and it is called the Garden of Gethsemanes.  Now if we take that theme out of the religious setting bottle 7 is about the test of faith.  This is not a test of faith in anything outside of ourselves; it is the test of faith in ourselves.  Can we do this?  Can we survive and thrive?  Will it all be okay?  The test of faith is in whether we believe and feel that we will endure and be okay.  Even when disaster strikes our lives or things are not going as we would want.  In the Americas this is exactly what they are going through.  For all of us as we stress about our relationships or our financial situations our stress is driven by our fear that we will not be okay.  Without going all biblical on you, there is a phrase in the bible that states something like this “if you had a tiny drop of faith you could shift mountains”.  Faith and belief is the energy that makes all of the techniques covered in The Secret and many other self-help modalities work or not.  Unfortunately most have stronger negative beliefs and faith driven by fear than they do positive.  Bottle 7 has a lot of yellow and you may remember from last month I talked about yellow is either great joy or great fear.    Each and every one of us must decide whether we are going to have faith in something or someone outside of themselves or whether we dare to find the courage and faith from within.  This is a scary place for many because they do not have the faith in themselves.  Most do not believe that they will be enough, that they will be okay.  But more than that, we worry that we will not thrive when life throws us a curve ball.   This leaves us all with a deeply rooted sense of powerlessness and we certainly cannot move mountains in this state. It is these deeply seated fears that we must all take responsibility for removing.  Strength of spirit comes from the investment of time and effort just the same as strength of muscles. I would love to be able to help you achieve strength of spirit and a strong faith and belief in yourself and your true potential.   You must take the first step.

Have fun during November, stretch your limits, and discover what you are truly capable of!

The Soul of October 2012

Here in the Adelaide hills Spring is truly here.  The wild flowers are blooming and the days are becoming warmer.  October of course is the second month of Spring and the energies of October are going to be a change of pace from the heaving duty energies of the preceding months.  Let’s look at the numbers for October 2012; we have 10 plus 20 plus 12 which equals 6.  We have been dealing with the 20 and 12 all year so I will not go over them again, so let’s initially look at bottle 10.

Bottle 10 in the Aura-Soma system is green over green.  Hidden within is of course yellow and blue.  We will look at them in a moment.  Green is the frequency of our planet – Earth. It is the colour of healing, a large part of our natural environment displays a multiplicity of green.  Bottle green has four major facets:

  1. connecting with nature and experiencing your oneness with nature.
  2. if you have a ten in your birth date you often find that it is hard for you to be yourself around strong personalities.  You can end up being what they want and say.
  3. green can be quite stubborn and resistant to change, it can be frozen with fear.
  4. green is the colour of jealousy and envy.

It is quiet curious when you think about it, that a colour that is so abundant and nurturing in our environment is also aligned with one of the most destructive emotions humans can express.  Jealousy and envy is felt by many when they perceive that someone has something that they believe they should have.  In that moment of thought they believe that there is scarcity in their world and therefore they are missing out.  Jealousy and envy usually only has one means of recourse and that is to take what we believe is rightfully ours and/or prevent the other person from having what it is we desire.  Jealousy is called the green eyed monster for good reason.  So yes this month you may find yourself battling the green eyed monster from those around you or from within yourself.

As always in order to move forward in our lives, to be able to live happier and more fulfilling lives we all need to clean up our shadow emotions.  Our shadow emotions are natural in that they are part of our psyche.  That however, doesn’t mean that we cannot grow past them.

The brighter side of green is of course being in touch with nature.  Getting out there amongst nature and enjoying the beautiful environment we have here in Australia. This is where the yellow contained within green can help. Yellow can be the colour of fear or courage.  Choose courage!  Connect with the brave yellow daffodils of spring, often the first spring flowers.  Spend time out enjoying the yellow warmth of the spring sun.  Allow yourself to be nourished by green and yellow, the colours of spring.  We have had a long cold and dark winter on many levels.

Yellow can also help you stand up for yourself, speak your truth, do what you want to do rather than be dictated to by the forceful personalities around you.  Just for fun re-acquaint yourself for the 60’s song by Donovan, Mellow Yellow!  Though I realise it will not be a re-acquaintance, it will be a first introduction for some.

One final note on bottle 10 is that it also has blue contained within.  As I have said in previous months blue is concerned with authority and often with fighting perceived outside authorities.  Whilst this will continue in this month to some degree I feel that the energy of blue in October will be considerably more mellow, a time of finding peace.  Just be and enjoy the return of spring.

We had a look at bottle 6 in June, Red over Red. So let me just reiterate.  Red is such a vibrant colour it can mean unlimited energy, passion and warmth it can also mean warning! Red is also the colour of blood, the symbol of truth and sacrifice.    Red is what we need when we are depleted emotionally, mentally and physically. So wear red when you need extra energy.  Red like green can also be very healing.  It is all of the red vegetables that are so full of valuable anti-oxidants.  If you are going to get yourself into trouble this month it will be if you combine the potent red energies of sexuality and anger and dance with the green eyed monster! Red is also considered a warning colour for good reason.

The slogan of the flower children in the 60’s was make love not war.  Use your red energy wisely!  Despite the fact that red caused a very fractious month in June I feel that October is going to be more balanced.  The mass joining together of the peoples of Melbourne as they mourned Jill Meager is very much exemplifies the energies of October.  Standing together, seeing how we are all connected and standing up for what is right. What effects one can affect all. This does not mean that I don’t think there will be challenges with angry or jealous people, but that the events are more likely to bring about change and positive growth and awareness.

I hope that you all find the sunshine of yellow, the peace of blue, the healing of green and red energy to enjoy it all during October.

Enjoy

The Soul of September 2012

This September is going to be a very “Virgoean” Month, In a nutshell September is about authority, striving for perfection and  the criticism that comes from authority and stripping yourself back to your virginal self.  You may remember I alluded to this in The Soul of August. The energies of this have already been stirring around in the later part of August, especially with the superhit of the Blue moon right on the last day of August.  Blue moons are not literally blue it is a saying to describe an event that only happens occasionally.  However, two moons in one month means that everyone’s emotional body has had two hits of tension build up.  Often this means that people start behaving badly when they man not have ordinarily as they can no longer use their will power to keep the emotional charge under control.  A moon cycle is similar to a physical menstrual cycle in that you can feel the build up and then the release.  Only the moon cycle effects both men and women alike.

So let look at September in more depth.  The numbers are 9 plus 2012 which adds to 14 which breaks down to 5 the number of emotional, physical and spiritual trauma, and learning to use your energies wisely.

September is the 9th month of the year and hence bottle 9 blue over green.  In the Aura-Soma system this bottle among other things links us back to pre-current age civilizations of which Atlantis is one.  Many including myself believe that we are still carrying within our energy systems old structures that belong to older civilizations.  What I mean by this is that your energy system has old circuitry that is from a much older time.  It is now time to start becoming aware, (should you so choose) of these structures and getting an upgrade.  However to enable an upgrade we have to be able to first recognise and let go of the energy we personally we have been adding to and running through these old systems.  I am calling this old system very Virgoean and very pertinent to bottle number 9 and September is very much about rebellion against perceived authority which asserts the perfect way.  Whether this perfect way be in the form of appearance, feelings, actions, knowledge, it doesn’t really matter.

With the belief in perfection comes generic authority that is meant to embody perfection and it stands in judgement of our own individualized perfection and authority.  The concept of perfection and resultant criticism and judgement robs us of our individuality.  We can see the social outworking of this as laws and procedures are put in place by authority to identify perfect behaviours, standardized ways of doing things.  We are all being treated as a number or a machine rather than an individual organism that has its own ways. Most feel that they cannot take on the “system” or Big Brother (which has returned to our TVs once again) and so they find individual’s who they can rail against. The problem for all of us until this energy system is removed it is self validating and self perpetuating because it leaves you two choices as an individual either to stand in a place of self-righteousness and assert that this way or your way is the absolute truth not only for you but also for others.  The other alternative is enormous guilt.  Most people waver between the two positions.

I could write a whole lot more about the energies at the moment and the need to change from the old structures you will be able to read more when my new book is released mid October.  However, the main thing I want everyone to understand at the moment the criticism and the resultant, judgement, resentment, hatred and persecution does not come from the fact that your mother or father criticised you when you were growing up.

The other major influence for September is bottle 5, yellow over orange.  The bottle embodies our trauma of being overly dominated and or abused by another individual or institution.  A traumatized individual in the end is anyone who has not been allowed to be their true self or their true self has not been accepted as perfect.  All of us know that when we are acting out of our pain we become very unfriendly people to put it mildly.  Every  time someone criticises us or we feel judged we fall into the deep pain that we have all carried, a pain that literally breaks our hear t and crushes our spirit.  The kicker is however, we are usually far my critical and judgemental of ourselves than anyone else.  Think about that next time someone is viciously judging you, what must they be doing to themselves and what are you doing to yourself to allow it?

The good thing about Bottle 5 is that is offer hope and bliss of recovering from “critical abuse” you can find your own bliss once again, find out who you truly would or could be is you dropped the generic or family way to be.  The choice in the end is yours, if you don’t know how then get help from someone who does.  The freedom from perfection means that you no longer need to know everything or do everything yourself.  You all know were to find me Lol

I will leave you with a poem I wrote in 2009 for you to ponder.

I Wonder!

My body silently weeps

Perhaps it would be better if it went back to sleep

But now it’s pain dredges up from the deep………..

I wonder what I would have been

If you had only seen

That I was more than you dreamed

What would I have been if I was held in great esteem?

Perhaps I would have fulfilled all my dreams

I wonder what I would have become if I was held in great esteem?

What would I have been if torture was not your game?

Perhaps I would not have felt so much blame

I wonder what I would have become if torture was not your game?

What would I have been if my body was hallowed and sacred?

Perhaps I would not have been desecrated

I wonder what I would have become if my body was hallowed and sacred?

What would I have been if you had seen the magic in my eyes?

Perhaps you would not have told me so many lies

I wonder what I would have become if you had seen the magic in my eyes?

What would I have been if I was treasured and considered rare?

Perhaps my face would have been considered most fair

I wonder what would have become if I was treasured and considered rare?

What would I have been if I was nurtured with respect?

Perhaps I would not feel such a reject

I wonder what I would have become if I was nurtured with respect?

What would I have been if you had not felt the need to control?

Perhaps I would not feel such a need to withhold

I wonder what I would have become if you had not felt the need to control?

What would I have been if not considered innately evil?

Perhaps I would have spread my wings a flown like an eagle

I wonder what I would have become if not considered innately evil?

What would I have been if I was more than a lowly Hoare?

Perhaps I could have been the one you most adored

I wonder what I would have become if I was more than a lowly hoare?

What would I have been if your eyes held love not lust?

Perhaps I would have learnt to trust

I wonder what I would have become if your eyes held love, not lust?

What would I have been if I was swaddled in love right from the start?

Perhaps I would have grown strong of heart

I wonder what I would have become if I was swaddled in love right from the start?

What would I have been if you had seen my light and beauty?

Perhaps I could have loved more than from duty

I wonder what I would have become if you had seen my light and beauty?

What would I have been if I was dearly cherish?

Perhaps my life would not have been so nightmarish

I wonder what I would have become if I was dearly cherish?

What would I have been if I was honoured and revered?

Perhaps I would not have become so severe

I wonder what I would have become if I was honoured and revered?

What would I have been if I were deemed worthy?

Perhaps my life would not have felt so lonely

I wonder what I would have become if I were deemed worthy?

What would I have been if I was the one you loved and adored?

Perhaps I would not felt so ignored

I wonder what I would have become if I was the one you loved and adored?

What would I have been if you thought my value beyond compare?

Perhaps I would not have felt such despair

I wonder what I would have become if you thought my value beyond compare?

What would I have been if you had protected me when I was weak?

Maybe I would have learnt words of power to speak

I wonder what I would have become if had protected me when I was weak?

What would I have been if you had touched me with tenderness and care?

Perhaps I would not find life so hard to bare

I wonder what I would have become if you had touched me with tenderness and care?

What would I have been if you gave more than you took?

Perhaps I would have had a very difference outlook

I wonder what I would have become if you gave more than you took?

What would I have been if you used words of love, not hate?

Perhaps my heart would not have to break

I wonder what I would have become if you had used words of love, not hate?

But Oh well it was all for the best

Isn’t that right? It’s just a test?

Well I guess you and I did our very best

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger

But for how much longer

Must I wander in order to grow stronger?

But now I am afraid it’s hard to remember

How to fan love’s glowing ember

But you said it’s all for the best remember?

I am finding it hard to get out from under

From memories of the past let me be torn asunder

Oh to live a life of love and wonder!

Use September for your own metamorphis, transform from the caterpillar and become the beautiful butterfly that you were always meant to be.

The Soul of March 2012

Many people felt a real weight upon them on March 1st, and an unexplained weariness, feeling they just couldn’t get up and face the day.  The cosmic and universal energies were trying to get us to take notice – we simply cannot continue to do what we have always done and expect a different outcome.

I am not going to bore you by repeating the energies of 2012 except to say as March is the 3rd month it’s energy is contained within the 12 which adds to a three.

But just to give you a recap on bottle 3, blue over green, this bottle is called the Atlantean/Heart Bottle.  This bottle embodies the crux of the emotional healing required for humanity to move forward. Emotional maturity is obtained by going through the tough stuff of life, developing emotional muscle just as you would develop physical muscle.  Many souls have done their best to dodge this lesson.   As a result they carry enormous emotional wounding. Coupled with, an emotional body that is severely underdeveloped.  So I feel that during March you will find yourself facing issues that you have tried to avoid.  You will get a second, third or forth opportunity to deal with what is important for you to sort out for you own emotional growth. 

If you don’t know how to do this, then find someone who can help you in a loving and supportive way. Your reward will be greater feelings of happiness and contentment within your life.  Even if you don’t feel that you have any major issues, it is time to reassess, what you are doing in your life that is stopping your from growing mentally, emotionally and spiritually. 

A client commented to me recently that she “didn’t realize how unhappy she was at the time when she first came to see me”  It was only looking back from now to then, could she see that!

When you add 3/2012 together you get 8.  In the Aura-Soma system bottle 8 is yellow over blue and it is called Anubis.  Anubis is one of the oldest know Egyptian gods, he was among other things, responsible for weighing the truth of the heart of departed souls. He therefore, also decided the soul’s fate.  So if you apply this information to the energy of March it adds further weight to our need to get to the heart of who we are and find our truth.  Our personal truth sits underneath all of the emotional junk from our earthly existence. 

Bottle 8 also has a strong connection for those who have had previous incarnations in Egypt and the Middle East.  These lives were most likely to have been marked by fear and domination.  Much like what is still going on not only in the Middle East but also in many areas of the world. Time to overcome the fear of oppression and speak up for what is true for you.

Bottle 8 adds the energy of discernment to the mix, providing the energy to sift through our stuff and discern what is actually true and what is not, what needs to be discarded and what kept.

The positive side of Annuis is a joyful life, a person who has a strong connection with their inner self and is able to discern and convey wisdom to others.  Wouldn’t it be fabulous if we could all reach this state?

So have a great month everyone, sifting through the junk and finding your inner truth and wisdom! There is nothing quite so liberating as having a good clean out in your wardrobe, the inner realm is even more gratifying.

The Soul of December 2011

December is the 12th month of the year and as we are moving into 2012 next year December gives us a little taste of what next year has in store for us.  On the surface bottle 12 sounds wonderful, but the challenges of December come from bottle 3.  A bit like the Christmas season, all pretty and sparkly on the outside and yet under the surface things are not so rosy.

So let’s look at pretty and sparkly park first.   Bottle 12 is clear over blue and in the Aura-Soma system bottle 12 is called Peace in the New Aeon.  The energy of December has the potential for us all to find inner peace despite the fact that the “silly season” is upon us!  As we come to the end of 2011 and move into 2012 with all the end of the world hype, inner peace will be an essential quality.  Blue of course is the colour of the throat chakra, therefore the potential for peace will most likely come through our ability to communicate peacefully, truthfully and in ways that are nurturing to all concerned.  The downside of blue is of course feeling blue.  Depression comes from feeling of futility and the inability to effect change in our world.  Finding peace will come from a degree of letting go, applying the old principle of having the wisdom to know what you can change and what you cannot.

Peace in the New Aeon sounds all very wonderful but if you add 1 and 2  together  you get Bottle 3 blue over green and this bottle is called the Atlantean/Heart Bottle.  Bottle 3 reveals more of the challenges of December.  Whenever I get a client with a 12 or 3 in their birth numbers I always have the difficult task of advising them that their soul is emotionally immature.  Many adults are affronted by this concept so let me explain.  Emotional maturity is obtained by going through the tough stuff of life, developing emotional muscle just as you would develop physical muscle.  Many souls have done their best to dodge this lesson.   As a result they carry enormous emotional wounding coupled with an emotional body that is severely underdeveloped.  With no inner reserves this person is always looking for things and people outside of themselves to make them happy.  The Christmas season has become all about the shiny bright things on the outside.  Emotional maturity and inner peace go hand in hand.  Emotional maturity brings inner contentment, self-reliance and self-love that no thing or person on the outside can disturb.  Emotional maturity brings with it the capacity to genuinely nurture not only yourself but others from a different perspective.  The shadow side of green is jealousy and envy and unfortunately Christmas has a great potential to bring this out in ourselves when we are feeling needy and require outer things to make us feel good.

It is also important to note that Bottle 3 is the Atlantean bottle. Atlantis marked the end of our last incarnational cycle, when there was a change from matriarchal to patriarchal dominance.  What this means is that the vast majority of humanity is still carrying wounds from this cycle.  Everyone got a free pass at the change of ages, it is unlikely that this will occur again.  Each and every one of us needs to take individual responsibility for our soul’s progression. We have become caught up in the mental world and tried our best to suppress our emotions, not the best recipe for creating maturity!  Our challenge for December which will continue into 2012 is to create a new heart space, where there is no separation between head and heart – they are one.  This can only happen when both the masculine and feminine, shadow and light, mental and emotional are of equal power and development.

So take it easy this December, try not to get caught up in the world of bright shiny things and overindulgence in food and alcohol.  Sit with yourself and your loved ones, find joy and happiness in the little things that money cannot buy.  If you have ever considered personal development and spiritual growth then now and next year is certainly the time to begin.  Find your inner strength and peace –  Be the change you want to see in the world!
