Happy New Year everyone!
Well, here we are, 13 days in, at the beginning of a new year, and in a Mercury Retrograde as well. I don’t know about you, but I just have to laugh and watch all the craziness go by.
The beginning of a new year is a powerful time to set the stage for each one of us to set a new intention/direction for the year. So how do we do this with the seemingly backward movement of Mercury and the challenge to move forward in our lives for this year?
I have been doing a lot of stepping aside right now, and allowing the outward appearances of the world go by, staying centered in myself and my connection to the Divine, and staying conscious of the phrase, “for the highest good of All”. So when I hear a certain presidential candidate carrying on, making frightening statements that hearken back to Germany in the 1930’s, I could allow myself to get involved by getting scared or angry, but what I have been doing lately, is sending love and light “for the highest good of All”. I feel calmer and not as connected to the rhetoric of fear.
The Mercury Retrograde tends to magnify the fear-talk and confusion-speak, so everyone hold on, stay centered, and this too shall pass.
So my question to you for the beginning of this year is: What is the intention and direction for your life this year? How can you hold yourself calm and steady during the times of apparent confusion and fear? What do you do?
We are all in this together, and we are all blessed.
