As the sun goes down on another year, just like all the media and the rest of my colleagues, I’m reflecting back over 2015. It has been so, so very busy in my own personal world, and an incredibly powerful year for us all.
The most influential planets and stars in our universe brought major cosmic energies. During a rare solar eclipse and lunar eclipse, which had a profound effect on our energy as human/spiritual beings, many empathic souls were touched. We are informed by great spiritual teachers that these significant cosmic energies brought the opportunity closer to us all than ever before for growth to our planet, and all of humanity.
The opportunity for our personal spiritual empowerment and enlightenment. We are all being called in greater numbers to Be the Light on a grand scale. Whilst all the time it is very hard for some of us not to reason that another darker side of our world seems to be taking control. We have had, and are still experiencing the strangest of weather patterns, as well as formidable and hateful terrorist attacks, all of which has induced fear into many hearts and minds.
A Course In Miracles teaches us that we can only have fear or love, but not both at the same time. When love and joy fills our soul, then fear disappears from our heart.
When we are called to serve the Light, then angels surround us, they inspire and protect us, bring gifts of energy healing or new friends into our lives. Whether we recognise them or not they enfold us in wings of love and support. We have to learn to allow ourselves to be open to this. Strange coincidences, beautiful visions in nature like rainbows and prominent stars or sky formations catch our attention. To some this is natural beauty, to others a sign of a deep connection with all that is. No matter what is going on around us, or even in our personal world, we may always try to see the positive and feel love for others. But we can’t just sit back and wait. We have to be pro-active.
As you know I spent much of 2015 travelling. As well as lots of workshops in the UK I was busy visiting places in the world such as Turkey, Iona and Costa Rica, where I shall return to teach over the next two years, as a guest facilitator or to lead a group retreat there. Now I’m also more involved in my village community too, as well as continuing with my writing and workshops far and wide. The world seems to be getting smaller and I’m always hopeful that one of these days I shall fulfil my wish of re-visiting Australia, New Zealand and USA with my work. I’m putting out feelers, and when the time is right I’m sure I’ll be there.
And among all this loveable work I enjoy a wonderful involvement as much as possible with my friends, family and grandchildren, and I have lots of fun too.
Often I feel stretched, but know that whenever my senses are dulled by fatigue that the Company of Heaven replenishes and fills me with a renewed sense of purpose and drive. As the clock turns and we enter into 2016 I shall be on a mission to be the best that I can be, and to serve others and the planet as well as I am able, just like many of you.
God needs a body. There is no coincidence that YOU are here now, doing your bit to change the world.
What will you do to bring Light into your own world this New Year? How will you shine your Light in service to others, to help to illuminate the bigger picture? I know that however ‘small’ you consider yourself, or no matter how little you feel you are able to contribute, whatever you do it will be great. Even your loving smile brings lightness to the day.
Let us all shine from our hearts like beautiful stars. May the Light of love glow on you and through you, and bless all those who come into contact with you.
Have a wonderful bright New Year!
