2014 started out rough (the first 24 hours, anyway). Not with a hangover like most New Years Days in my adult life, but from what was clearly a negative energy purge.
Most of 2013 was intense (emotionally.... physically.... mentally... energetically.... fiscally... literally....). Just icky. So by New Years Day of this year, a dark emotional heaviness that had been building had reached a climax. I took a hike up a mountain in Glendale, feeling the heaviness intensify as I ascended. From the summit I did a cleansing and connecting meditation for what felt like an eternity. As my meditation commenced, I felt the accumulation of layers...upon layers...upon layers...of super heavy and dark energy evaporate out of me and into thin air. Ironically, for the first 10 days into 2014, Los Angeles's air quality was the most polluted and haziest I had seen it consecutively since I moved here 4 years ago. It was like many of us went through a purge and it hoovered before we were completely cleared of it!
What this cleansing allowed for was upliftment, wholeness and clarity to a new fabulous (and previously unattainable) degree. I even actualized most of my vision board within the first 3 months of the year (thanks to so many of you loving and supportive souls!) - becoming a yoga teacher and Reiki Master Teacher by March!
In my souls interests of uplifting others toward self love and empowerment, I've been able to teach dozens of yoga classes and channel countless energy healing sessions throughout the year. Numerous Reiki clients and yoga students have reached out in gratitude and exclaiming how these services have benefited their lives and health. I'm so grateful for being able to help :)
Thanks to my dedication and tenacity for healing my own inner space, my capacity for joy and magic is exponentially greater than ever. And as such - in this land of polarity - the dark times now pack a snarky punch, too. But they're few, far between, short lived, and I have numerous tools for navigating them with more grace and ease. Peeling away old layers of conditioning has taken some time, but I never could've imagined the payoffs being as magical as they are. The feelings of peace, wholeness, joy and clarity that I experience now are the greatest gifts. And it gets better every day! I feel more in the flow and resilient to twists and turns than every before. Being detached from outcomes, ideas of how things should go, beliefs about myself and others - anything limiting - has granted me a freedom and space for more joy and liberation than ever imagined.
As we close out 2014, I am steadily getting back on my feet. Earning a solid income (and from multiple means that I enjoy!) is a delicious way to slide into the new year :D
I'm eternally [**ETERNALLY**] grateful for the Universe, myself and the LONG list of beautiful souls (ie trail angels) who have supported me either financially, energetically, emotionally - in every way - during this meltdown-for-transformation time in my life. It's been one of the most powerful experiences I've had in my short 39 years. I wouldn't change a thing. I love it all.
2015 will be pay dirt! I feel it (in my finga's....). And i'll be ready. More receptive and ready than ever capable of before. The best part is my detachment from this, too! My inner peace and joy isn't dependent on external circumstances like it was in times past. I feel the joy of life more in the present moment. Smelling roses more and steering my life towards that which lifts me up - unapologetically. No greater gift.
Wishing you all a MaGiCaL, whole, prosperous 2015 filled with love, dancing and gut wrenching laughter!
