Is your power out?
Happy New Year! Symbolically, the New Year is a great time for LETTING GO, for washing away what is no longer serving us and for calling in vibrancy, radiance and alignment. Yes, sometimes, it can be extremely difficult to fully let go and accept what changes are coming, but let's also remember that one of the conditions of the human mind is to constantly want us to think that it knows whats best instead of trusting the bigger picture of what is actually happening. How can we better trust the What Is? How can we Let Go of our expectations of what we think is best? We Must. We are at the 11th hour. At times like these, I am always grateful when I remember to tap in to the energy and consciousness of my ancestors, to those that have come before me who have paved the way and made this reality what it is today. When I do this, there is an automatic allowance for a greater flow, a deeper breath, like a magnificent river, paving her way roaring through the canyon without anyone telling her which way to go, but instead allowing the Grace to make her way. Even though our instinct might be to grip on to the waters edge and contract in fear, we need to remind each other that it is OK to trust and let go. Holding on to the shore's edge can only take us so far, so we need to surrender to the guidance of our ancestors and Creator and let go. Only then can there be space for Grace and a deeper breath allowing us to trust in our Higher Sacred Self to know and trust the way. We are at a time of great change ahead of us. Let go of what you think you know to be best, and make space for Grace to show us a new, upgraded version of what is to be. In the flow and trust of the River of Grace, Catherine -- attributed to an unnamed Hopi elder Hopi Nation Oraibi, Arizona "You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are things to be considered . . .
Where are you living? What are you doing? What are your relationships? Are you in right relation? Where is your water? Know your garden. It is time to speak your Truth. Create your community. Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader." Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, "This could be a good time!"
"There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly. "Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, Least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
"The time for the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from you attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
"We are the ones we've been waiting for."
