I'm not much of a goal maker. I tend to have visionary dreams and hopes and charge in with full enthusiasm, and accept things if life has other plans. But occasionally I like to take stock of what I have and haven't done or worked through, and consider how I want to move forward.
For me, the solstice and two lunar eclipses were points of attention, and what came up was the desire to apply what I learnt last year. Namely, simplification and focus. Learning it's not only okay but essential to regularly do nothing.
Learning concepts is the first step, taking them into our every cell and soul. And then we start to actually practice. Of course, it's not so distinct, it's a process of many overlaps. I've been simplifying throughout the previous year.
Being away from the 'net and my usual routine has been a gift. (We'll be in the UK another month). As well as being ill for 2 months. Many times, when we refuse to listen, our bodies will force us to. I'm happy to be back online, and overjoyed to feel better, but am also clearer about what I want and, more to the point, what I need to do.
Despite the 3.7million ideas swimming 'round in my head, tempting me away from inner peace, I must choose 2-3. Put my energies into them, focus, and finally, produce something soul-satisfying.
Two of these are, writing my book (mothering + astrology) and the other is a website/blog connected to that.
And if I get to live to 113 years, like my maternal great-great-mother, I may just have time to get to another dozen ideas.
Have missed you guys.
What are you putting into practice in the year ahead?
