A message from a box of Booja Booja chocolates.
"Don't try too hard. Letting go normally works out just fine."
Mr DC just gave me this message with a chocolate. It prompted me to write this really long post. Please bear with me, it contains a gift sent with love. I'm hoping that you've been able to celebrate the festive season exactly how you wanted. No doubt, there has been at least a little drama, just hoping it's not been too much.
We've been being less busy than normal and letting go a lot. We've been having a proper post anniversary holiday and a quiet Christmas. Simon is in full holiday mode. It's a joy to see him let go of his responsibilities and open up his creative soul.
The crashing computer has forced me to step back even further and re-evaluate. I have taken the full opportunity to be here in this beautiful place. Using the time to reconnect with my old favorite practices for restoring harmony within the elements from The Nurturing Journey. I've been reconnecting with the ancestors and the earth beneath my feet. I have allowed the ocean to cleanse me, soothe me and bring free flow. The radiant sun has recharged my vital energy. My breath has been restored by the bountiful breeze. Such priceless blessings I have received over the last few weeks.
We've been creating space for flow and abundance. We've been letting go of old patterns that no longer serve. My body, heart, mind and soul are full to overflowing. I'm now ready to pay forward these blessings through my work as Rebel Rev.
This year has been so hard for many. I've experienced this at a personal level, within my family, clients and the wider community. There have been waves of shock, grief, pain, loss, overwhelm, difficulty and a palpable sense of powerlessness. I commit to playing my part to usher in a change. This New Moon can be a powerful time of going inside and setting our intentions for something different in the year ahead. A time to get clear about what would we like to bring into the world for our loved ones, the wider community and the World.
I had planned to mark this new moon with an online 2016 review party but I cancelled it yesterday. The party will come later. I feel like the appropriate action now is shared ceremony, reflection, meditation and re-dedication to purpose. I started this year with The New Moon, New Beginnings Ceremony. I will end the year with this too. May 2017 bring new light from the darkness.
Join me if you're also committed to being part of this change in our world during 2017. Use code LightfromDark before 31 December 2017 to receive this ceremony as a gift from me. Pay it forward in whatever way you choose.
