"SELF-REFLECTION IS THE SCHOOL OF WISDOM", -Baltasar Gracian
Happy New Year dear friends. I hope you all enjoyed a healthy holiday season. Many people I know suffered significant losses over the past few weeks. Death of a parent or partner is life changing. I continue to send healing your way. I know how hard it is when everyone around you is celebrating and you just want to scream or cry, or both. Time is a healer and the clock has propelled us into 2022. Going inward this month is not optional, self-reflection really does expose life's lessons.
We are in Venus retrograde and heading into Mercury retrograde later this month. These are times where the tide is coming in so to speak, so we revisit the past. We re-boot previous plans, or projects. We don't necessarily launch anything new, save that till later in February.
Re-boot for me means going back over something I have learned in the past, and fine tuning it to an ever better version. Sometimes its editing something I've written, or revising a workshop. This season of retrogrades is a great time for studying, the introspective energy works in your favor. Perhaps you had something in 2020 or 2021 that was a great idea but it didn't gain momentum. Maybe you put plans on hold the past couple of years. Well the New Moon in Capricorn is upon us! January 2nd to be exact. It's the perfect time to make your wishes or set goals for the new year ahead.
The new moon is a supercharged time to state your wishes, dreams, desires or goals with clear focused intent. It's also a good time to change deep rooted patterns so you don't have anything blocking your manifestation. This new year aligning with the new moon has an energy of ambition, it will help you think outside the box. Take those plans off the back burner and manifest away!
Write your wishes down, read them out loud to give them power. Consider writing an affirmation that begins with "I am...". For example, "I am thriving and living my soul's purpose". State your wishes after we enter the the new moon, roughly 2p.m. east coast time. The window is open even up to a day or so later.
Another type of re-boot is your health. So many people make new year's resolutions to lose weight. Instead, I'm focusing on maximizing my well-being with cleansing, yoga and creating an even stronger immune system. What will you re-boot?
I know a lot of people who have studied Reiki and perhaps haven't practiced it for a long time. I recently lent two books of the same title to women who have level II Reiki training. After purchasing these books for my lending library, the people who needed the content most were immediately in my presence. Divine timing. This book is a wonderful reminder of self-Reiki techniques and will be back in my lending library soon. This practice of self-healing is so powerful to add to your daily practice.
I know they will benefit by the refresher.
I think its so valuable to revisit past training and creative hobbies. So much so that I'm going to teach a workshop specifically for those who want to revive their healing skills. If you're interested please reach out. Small groups will be best so we can take a deep dive and be hands on interactive.
As always, I wish you good health and inspired passion on your path. Till we meet again.
Bright blessings, -K
