What a year 2016 has been! Full of event and drama and blessings in all our individual lives and in the world in general. In my own life, it has certainly been a year of surprises and of returning of both people and experiences. People I have not seen for years have suddenly popped back into my life. Experiences, likewise have been repeated out of the blue. It is interesting though, how differently we view these experiences with the passage of time.
As our ancestors reminded us at Newgrange – life is a spiral, not a closed circle, we cycle forward gathering experiences and hopefully, some wisdom, along the way.
So that, when we encounter the “same” experience again, we have
the opportunity to do things differently.
As we arrive at the shortest day of the year, we are reminded of our journey from extreme yin, the shortest day, to extreme yang, the longest day and back again. Like the inhale and exhale of light from the universe, so we journey from expansion to contraction and back again. Take time now at the gap between out-breath and in-breath to pause and connect to your inner wisdom for guidance for the year ahead. I wish to take this opportunity to thank all of you with whom I have worked this year and those of you who have participated in workshops throughout the year – it has been a great pleasure to share the journey with you! Next workshop is on February 5th.
I look forward to spending time with you again next year and until then, I wish you every blessing for 2017!
