We get to choose. We get to choose the direction we go in, the path we take, who we travel with and how we handle ourselves along the way. Our choice. Our responsibility for the results.
One of the ways I focus my new year is to choose three guiding words. What do I want to feel? Experience? Learn? How do I want to change? For 2019, my three words are vibration, nature and portals.
“If we learn to sense everything from a higher vantage point or vibrational frequency, we may actually see the world as it really is, a construct of our minds and our collective dance. Nothing is what it seems.” Raja Chaudhury
Learning to raise my vibration is the major focus of the coming year for me — learning to feel and sense and be vibration so I can experience and embrace our oneness.
You know, something simple like that.
In the past year, I have been consciously and actively exploring the 95% of our world that is invisible. How do you explore the invisible? I do it through the inner meditative work of shamanic journeying. I just go where I’m led. I interpret the metaphors that appear and then I creatively apply the insights I receive. Journeying in the invisible world is absolutely my favorite thing to do.
My focus for the new year is to deepen my inner work. A lot!
One of the key places to learn about vibration is in nature. It’s filled with subtle messages and lessons. Observing the seasons teaches me the patience of unfolding. Gradual and almost invisible growth in nature teaches me patience and appreciation for small changes. I learn about balance from the elements. But most of all I learn about me because I am nature. I’m an unfolding, ripening, living and dying energy of nature. I want to attune myself with nature. I want to live an “unfolding life”. I will create steps that help me become more aware of and feel closer to nature.
Rather than “portals” this word could have been “openings” or “doorways” or “sacred paths” but portal seems both important and inviting. Cross the portal. Take a step through the portal and discover something new. Portals mean adventure and continuous exploration. I can do that.
My plan is to learn to raise my vibration so that I can explore the void and be open to entering and exploring any portal that calls to me. In my journeying, I’m getting very clear pictures of light streaming out of a portal, a doorway that I am to enter, an energy that’s within that calls to me. The portal is always filled with a welcoming light, an invitation to enter, explore, figure out the message, the lesson, and how to apply it to my life. I’m excited about what I will find.
The year of 2019
It feels very adventurous, this new year of 2019. Learning to raise my vibration, deepening my awareness of myself as nature, wandering off into the unseen world to move through mysterious portals, trying to figure out the meaning of what I find and bringing it back to apply to my life in a manner that changes my life and the lives of others who are drawn to my work.
How I will l access these concepts
First and foremost, I journey – every day. (See Unleash the power of your Sacred Garden) The more I journey, the more I’m shown and the better I get at interpreting the metaphors I’m given.
I seem to figure things out by writing about them. It may be a phrase that sparks a whole investigation of its meaning to me and ways I can apply it to my life.
I journal often and keep notes. I keep the entries organized by months and at the top of each month I create a summary that includes shifts, gifts, actions and purpose, so I can, if I wish, review the highlights. I journal whatever stands out in my mind — how it felt, what it accomplished. Suddenly it’s easy to identify my next steps, the things that did work and also see where time was not so well spent so I can release and replace those. A journal is a powerful self-awareness tool.
I love to learn and take classes online all the time. There are wonderful free summits on specific topics where you can meet potential teachers and of course find powerful in-depth courses to support you in your journey. The Shift Network and Sounds True are great sources.
I’m particularly excited about the vibrational work. I want to learn to experience myself as pure vibration. I want and need to experience my connection with the Transformational Thinkers who are all over the planet doing this inner work. It makes me feel stronger and more helpful. I don’t know what any of this will look like or feel like or even how I’m going to do it, but there are helping spirits ready to show me the way.
I continue to expand and strengthen my spiritual practice. I’m in a constant state of exploration and discovery and adjustment as I strengthen and expand my daily spiritual practice, which includes many ways to reach and experience the unseen world.
Three years ago, my desire to deepen my relationship with nature led me to shamanism. I have the tools, and I’m doing the work. But I can do better and much of my focus in the coming year will be on merging with nature. I’ve begun to journey to the elements and seem to be writing poems again — which was always my way to grasp an insight. I play my flute to begin my day and also to honor the sun going down. I play my Kalimba Finger Piano to welcome the sunrise. I will use sound and observation and ceremony to deepen my connection with nature.
I’m excited and eager to step through untried portals as I move more deeply into the invisible world. I want to explore the 95% of the world that is unseen. An open door leads to adventure and deepening spirituality. I want both.
