I'm going out on a limb here by thanking 2016, I know. There's a lot of 2016 bashing happening both on social media and in quiet circles. I'd like to put my spiritual teacher hat on and present a side that perhaps you haven't considered.
2016 adds to a 9. A 9 year represents the end of a cycle, a year of completion.
Someone out there is thinking, "Yes, I know! See, the year of death!"
But I beg to differ.
We needed to complete this cycle as a human race. We could not, cannot, move forward without a completion year.
The number 9 is about endings. And we are collectively ending some really HUGE things in our world!
As I see it, all of the major societal structures are ending as we currently know them: governmental, medical, educational, financial, religious.
People are questioning everything! And that's exactly the way it needs to be to facilitate change in the structures.
Have patience, my friends, great changes are coming our way! Do not fear them! It is imperative that they occur to move humanity forward.
2017 adds to a 1: a birth year, new beginnings. As we all know, birth doesn't occur without some pain and stretch marks. I promise you, your status quo will be rocked.
But collectively, this needs to happen for us to stand up as a human race
to declare who we are and what we love: the reason we are all here!
Personally, I lost loved ones, too. 2016 also brought an end to my old life as I shifted my personal structures and opened Beleno Spiritual Healing Center. Growing pains? You betcha! But I know they are absolutely necessary as I am ready to assist with your personal (and the world's) birthing pains.
And as far as all of those celebrity deaths go? They aren't sacrifices. Those souls departed willingly and joyfully! They know that they can affect more change and give us all more support from the other side than they could in their human forms. Call upon them! They are ready to assist us in our magical personal and structural transformations.
Rejoice, dear ones! You chose to be here at exactly this time and space so you could take part in these humanity-changing moments.
Move forward in 2017 fearlessly because everything is happening exactly as it needs to, and from my perspective:
IT IS GLORIOUS!
Live in love.
