Dearest fellow spiritualists, empaths, lightworkers and awakening souls; HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you managed to leave all your sh*t behind in 2015 and start fresh this year 🙂
My mind has been sort of chaotic lately (same procedure as every year – I guess some things never change 😂) and as a result I’ve been experiencing some sort of writers block. I have wanted to share some words about oh, so many thoughts and themes, but I just couldn’t find where to start..
But, a new year and a new era has begun, so I figured I would share some reflections about this calendar shift with you.
I have to say it has been a year of tremendous personal growth, and for that I am grateful. I finished my Masters Thesis in change management at the same time my work place got shut down and my relationship ended. So there I was; a single, unemployed ex-student alone in a market defined by oil-crisis and a following massive lack of available jobs, with no money so I had to move back to my parents. Earlier, I would have gone into a massive panic attack and be certain my life had ended. BUT, I WAS GRATEFUL. Say whaaat?
You heard me. I was grateful that, for once in my life, absolutely nothing was planned ahead. I was forced into a situation where I had to figure out who I was, who I wanted to become and where my Highest Self wanted me to go from there. And so I started painting, writing, meditating, dancing, and reading huge amounts of articles about self-development, spiritual awakening and balancing tips for Empaths. I must admit the interest in various activities was shifting, but at least I always did something.
Still, I started feeling tired and unmotivated after a while. So I went to a great healer Ive been to once before (I still find it quite hard to do healing work on myself). She balanced my energy field and told me to stop overthinking and worrying about it – I am quite good at that sometimes. She also said there was no carrot dangling ahead of me, I actually had it in my hand, I just had to figure out how to eat it. So, I listened, and I have felt so much lighter since. Sometimes we just need to be reminded of what we already know deep down.
I’ve also started to study my own social reflection on a deeper level, really thinking about how other people see me. Not in a low self-esteem, approval-seeking kind of way, but more like who do I want to be for the people dear to me and how can I change to become more like my Authentic Self?
This is so valuable! In working on my self I have also come to see other people differently, to better understand them, forgive instead of holding onto anger, and react with a loving heart instead of a wounded Ego. Oh, how this changes the quality of life! As an Empath, I understand more with every day how important it is to stop trying to control peoples lives, no matter how clear their path is to me. Rather then give them a garden, I will plant them a seed. And let it be up to them to water it or let it wither away. This is not a new fact for me, but whats new is that Im finally managing to do it. And I feel freeee! 😀
So, guys. I am still unemployed. I am still separated from the man I love the most. I still live with my parents. The market is still crap. But I’m still SUPEREXCITED FOR 2016! How great is it to enter a New Year with no limits, no laid-out road but instead endless choices and paths to travel? I hereby promise to follow my Heart and Soul, to let go of control, to spread light and love. And I KNOW these elements will bring me what I truly desire.
And I actually know where to start… By writing a book! 😀
Have an adventure, y’all! And don’t forget the Law of Attraction ❤
