Expressing Gratitude and Envisioning the Present
"Come my friends, it is not too late to create a world where we are all liberated by Love."
~ Tarasa Lovick
Sitting in front of the fireplace, sipping hot chocolate, I find myself creating space for infinite possibilities to move towards beauty, consciousness and compassion in 2021. To begin, I participate in a "give-a-way." You might want to consider practicing this too. This ritual has developed into a ceremony for me. It's a time of releasing, not only items of form that no longer serve their purpose; but, beliefs or emotions that don't allow for liberation.
This past year, I released so much, sometimes it was a shock to me what I could let go of, both visible and invisible. For example, the completely hand sewn quilt that I made; its' creating was a prayer vigil, calling my daughters to me from China. There were many other things that I was freed to release. The bulk of the freedom focused on enabling me to live in the present moment. Releasing and expressing gratitude creates room for new visions.
Perhaps like me, you've begun to ponder what you will create in these new empty spaces you have created. So many folks want to sweep 2020 under the rug. However, this past year, has delivered unimaginable gifts, such as the raising of consciousness to move humanity in the direction of a great awakening.
Life is not always easy, but waking up is always a miracle.
Like me, while closing the circle of 2020, you may choose to reach for paper and pen to create time and space to write. You might be surprised by what you find. I'd love to hear from you if there is something you want another to simply witness. Here are some questions I am pondering:
What were your growth edges (challenges, difficulties), and what did you release?
What are you giving birth to in its place?
What is the most important thing you learned about yourself?
What took the most courage for you this past year — something you saw, or a decision you made?
What are you most proud of yourself about this year?
What are the most important lessons of 2020?
If you had one message from your future self to share, what would it be?
May 2021 be filled with the magic of miracles for you. Namaste.
Love & blessings,

No matter what the question, love is the answer.
