Dear Satsang, Friends on the Path,
The first new moon of the year is in Capricorn, heralding more change, shifting of consciousness, social uprisings, and encouraging us to come up with new solutions and constructive ways to rebuild our world.
No matter where we are or what we are doing in our lives, it’s virtually impossible to look away and not be affected. Somehow, we have to attend to the day-to-day realities of our lives, and simultaneously take action to affect change wherever we can. We are riding a giant wave, and somehow we must stay balanced, calm, and focused to reach the shore safely.
January tends to be a month where we create intentions, roll up our sleeves, and get to work. This is greatly supported by the planetary lineup with the energy all about taking action, forward momentum, rapid growth, and making good choices. Times like this when everything seems so out of control, we can look within and acknowledge where we DO have power, and how and where to focus our energy.
OWN YOUR POWER.
2021 is going to be a year where there is still plenty of chaos as the old structures breakdown and new ones are created, as people learn to get along despite our differences, as our freedoms are restricted, and the Earth continues to lash out her message that we need to fix what we’ve damaged.
Instead of getting distracted by other peoples drama and all the craziness going on in the world, you can focus your energy on taking superior care of yourself, who YOU want to be in this brave new world, looking for opportunities to serve your gifts, come together in sacred circles to make connections with people, and keep our hearts and minds open to the infinite possibilities that exist.
There is a holy momentum happening, there is a spiritual awakening of the people, a higher frequency of love in action, and the realization that we are ALL interconnected. In our discomfort with the old systems, we are making changes from the top down, demanding justice, taking better care of each other, and looking deep inside our own souls for how we can have better health, relationships, and fulfilling work that benefits the whole (including the planet), as well as our own hearts.
I believe that there has never been a better time to team up with people, collaborate, and support each other in the beautiful weave that can be created through a unified vision for peace, prosperity, and love.
The world is not the same, and we are not the same. Who are you, NOW? Who do you want to become? What do you love and value NOW? Are you showing up authentically, bravely? Do you have a secret treasure you are hiding, or saving for just the right time to share?
WHEN YOUR DESIRE TO SERVE IS GREATER THAN YOUR FEAR, YOU WILL GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY.
I pray we can all gather our sustaining power, take refuge in our spiritual practices, love each other up, and be inspired into creating this new world and empowered YOU.
Om Namah Shivaya!
