Last week I met with one of my mentors to get clarity and strategize on the year ahead. As I shared with her my dreams, my goals, my vision for the direction I want to move, I felt myself getting jittery. A nervous energy began to course through my entire body as if there was club soda running in my veins.
This always happens when something big is about to be birthed. It's as if the body and spirit play tug-of-war. The spirit, ethereal, light, knowing, expansive and the body earthly, condensed into matter, full of ego, aches and old voices. The spirit comes round again and again until it wins, but sometimes it takes awhile. Sometimes the ideas need time to synthesize in the mind and body.
The energy of the throat chakra plays an important role here because it mirrors the metabolic process. Stay with me as I break this down for you....
The throat chakra governs our communication, speaking our truth, speaking with integrity. It also governs the thyroid. The thyroid is part of the endocrine system, it secretes hormones necessary for growth and metabolism. The body intakes food, digests and metabolizes it into the mental and physical energy for us to function.
Here's how the throat chakra works. Ideas, wisdom, concepts, come down into our crown chakra, that big invisible radio antenna on the top of your head. These ideas travel down into the mind's eye for recognition and become pieces of clarity and insight, the juicy a-ha's! These a-ha's then need to also digest in the energy body so they travel down through the throat chakra to be spoken as our truth. Pretty cool, huh?
I bring the throat chakra up because it governs communication. We're emerging from Merkie Retro, (Mercury the planet governing communication) and finally gaining ground. Merkie Retro shook up our mojo for new year's intentions but now....
“As we enter February we encounter good influences that will take your choices and decisions and feed them with some momentum allowing for action, manifestation and flow...... This is not a month to be sitting on the fence or to regret your choices or to think the grass is greener on the other side......The best choices are often made from a place of ‘knowing’ that has nothing to do with the rational mind but more to do with the intuition of the heart." Lena Stevens, Power Path
And this year the cosmic energy is here to back it all up as we enter into the Chinese New Year of the Fire Monkey!
"The year of the Monkey is ideal for a quantum leap in your life! Now is the time to shake things up, create change, and innovate a new path." Susan Levitt, 2016 Fire Monkey Year
OMG! Are you ready?? Last year was the time for healing, it was a time when the Wood Sheep was in pasture, it was time for being slower, more methodical, more restful.
You've gone through some serious life lessons. You've hit that karmic nugget hard! Hard enough to dissolve a big part of it. You've come through it with new wisdom. You've licked your wounds. You've done some powerful healing. So what are you going to do with this new, emerging self?
Are you ready to break through the old muck keeping you stuck in a emotional holding pattern?
Are you ready to have real relationships and connection?
Are you ready to step into your purpose?
Are you ready to take your seat as the amazing being you are?
If you've answered yes, then it's time to shout it out to the Divine!
Get crystal clear about what you want. What are you willing to do for it?
Be methodical, but be fiery.
And steer clear of the naysayers. Steer clear of the people who bring you down. Align with like-minded people. Sometimes this means you might have to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Sometimes this means pushing people out of your life. It's okay, new ones with a higher vibration will come in because you've just increased yours.
Where are you constricting as you read this? You're constricting because of that tug-of-war your spirit has with your body. It's okay. You are acclimating to the higher vibration of it. Breathe into that place, open and let it be a meditation in progress.
What do you finally need to release so there is abundant space for these things to come into your field?
Remember my phrase: "Emptiness is the space reserved for the SPECTACULAR to come in and lounge!"
