May all that is good, healthy and prosperous flourish throughout 2021!
Whew! We made it into a new year. No time to look back now! Instead, stand firm and go forward with a renewed trust that our best life is still out in front of us. Even though we seem to begin every New Year with similar sentiments, this year is truly different. We have just moved through some very major earth cycles, some of which have not happened in a thousand years! That would explain why last year was intense and far reaching into all aspects of our lives.
So what were these cycles trying to say to us? What were the lessons that were being presented? Truly we are in a new phase of evolution. This phase starting in 2021 is about freedom from within. Poets, prophets and philosophers have stated this truth for centuries, yet we have never been able to live it to the fullest. This is the time for a major breakthrough into a new kind of freedom. This time the freedom we seek will not be mandated from outside of ourselves for that would still imply that we are held captive by someone else’s authority. This is the time to finally embrace to thy own self be true. This has been proclaimed by Jesus thousands of years ago, through his ageless teaching, “be in the world but not of it.”
In some cases we may think we are already doing that. If we search deeper we will find that we ALL have been swayed, controlled, indoctrinated by someone. We have been taught to follow and not trust our own inner wisdom. These control patterns came from parents, society and any outside influence that we simply followed without proper inner scrutiny from within. Of course some of what we have been taught was handed down without any malice of intent, yet it was not completely true or it has become outdated. In some cases we just continued with a certain thought process without regard to its validity.
In order to live in true freedom, we must make peace with ourselves and other people as well, for not trusting our own inner divine wisdom first. We need to rebuild a relationship with the presence of God. Truth is ALWAYS within. It is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. This truth waits for us as an internal perfect GPS so that we don’t get hoodwinked! The problem is that unless we uncover and release the false premise thinking we have stored in our perceptions, we will never be able to sense truth and it’s guidance. The solution is simple, although it demands discipline. We need to sit quietly everyday and seek the Holy Spirit. We need to have the courage to ask, “Holy Spirit, please show me the false premise thinking that I am still holding onto.” Then we need to remain silent and trust whatever just bubbles up. It is advisable to have a journal ready to write it down so we can reflect upon it as needed. The next step is to ask the Holy Spirit to show us His truth and not our own. It is also advisable to write down these impressions in our journal as well. As we continue with this daily process, we will witness many miracles unfold. Fear and frustration will diminish. Clarity of purpose will be restored. A calmer confidence will increase as we make choices and decisions. We will no longer be like blind sheep following the tenor of the day. We will be lifted up into the truth that surpasses all human understanding. In this true spirit we will be guided to uncover our unclaimed talents and we will finally feel the overwhelming love God always has for us. Our personal experiences will attest to this truth. We will lead by example, often in silence, yet everyone around us will benefit.
This is real freedom. When we have learned to listen from within, infinite peace and wisdom will flow in all that we do, say, think and feel. This is how we return to our original blueprint for creation. Everything else is mere counterfeit.
There are great gifts that await us this year. It will take a daily dose of inner wisdom to have them revealed to us. Maybe this year we can make just one New Year’s resolution, that being, to thy own self be true, and let it be to our Divine self, since no imitation will ever satisfy us.
Let us embrace this year as a year to finally be who we were truly meant to be! Thank you, Lord!
