We are just hours away from the start of a New Year. Some places in the world are already celebrating, while others will lag behind. Whether you read, study or believe in astrology or any of the other types of ‘predictions’, the majority of people look forward to the start of a new year or the ending of the old. It’s not just the parties that people look forward to, it is the start of something new, and stepping into the unknown of the new year.
Talking with others about the coming of a new year, you can hear the anticipation in their voice and words of what the year will hold for them. Will it be a year of advancement or setbacks? Will it be the year you have been working towards, or will it be another year just like the others? Will this be the year you hit it big, or go bust?
2015 is shaping up to be the year of remedy, reward and reimbursement. Since the second half of 2012, you have experienced changes in many, if not all, facets of your life. Initially, 2014 felt like a roller coaster; rocking you back and forth, up and down emotionally and mentally; and, all the while stretching you and your ability to bear witness to the present, let go of the past, and hold in your heart the promise of the future. The second half of the year seemed less turbulent, affording you the opportunity to accept, adapt and settle into the apparent changes your life had borne.
You may find the beginning of 2015 a bit unsettling as well; much like a roller coaster. Hopefully it will not be one that hangs you upside down as it whips you into the next twist and turn! No, it should be a much smoother ride, once you set your own expectations aside and allow the momentum that has pushed you through the obstacles of the past two years to get you to this point to continue.
If you are one of those who still have your heels dug in to resist change, you can relax a bit now. The Universe and all its guidance will have lessened its efforts to assist and direct you by now. For you, 2015 will be a year of backward sliding; of returning to that which you held so tightly to. But beware: it will not be as comfortable and appealing as it was 2 or 3 years ago. Many of your friends will have moved on; what once was satisfying will be less enjoyable; and, what was once engaging or tempting will no longer be enticing. If times seemed tough back then, they will certainly be that way now.
If, on the other hand, you have allowed yourself to accept and adapt to the changes the Universe has sent your way, this will be the year you have been preparing for. This will be the year where you begin to realize the rewards for trusting that the Universe would guide you to a better place. This is the year where all of your hard work to let go of the people, places and things that no longer were serving you, reimburses you with replacements that fill your life with meaning and purpose, bringing you to a place where a lifetime of joy and happiness can be found.
This does not mean that there will not be bumps in the road; places where you have to reach deep within you to find the courage and grace to continue moving forward. But these will be bumps in the road, not the craters and gullies experienced over the past several years. And, that place where your courage and grace resides is no longer hiding but is much easier to reach and display.
If there is something you want to do that you have been putting off ‘until the right time’, this is the year to do it. This is the year that holds the remedies, rewards and reimbursements. Remedies to help you overcome the obstacles that you may face as you step into that place you know you are meant to be. Rewards for having the courage to trust you are worthy of being happy and that the Universe will lead you to a place of full potentiality. Reimbursements for a ‘job well done’ and a life full of experiences.
This is the year to make every breath you take meaningful and worthwhile … not for someone else, but for yourself. If you take care of yourself, you will be taking care of those around you as well. This is the year you have been waiting for; this is the year that matters; this is the year of YOU.
Stop listening to those who are naysayers and have nothing good or positive to say about you, your life, or the world that surrounds you. Start listening to those who listen to you, respect you, believe in you, trust in you, and encourage you. More importantly, listen to and watch the Universe. It is always supporting and working for you … if you let it. This is your year. Make the most of it.
