“The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.” ~ Eden Phillpots
The Latin word for "cor" means heart.
In the Western culture we refer to our "core" as our center, or our strength as it relates to our abdomen and how it supports all parts of our bodies. This is something to think about; to get to the root of any matter by way of our "cor” may better well serve us by relating our "core" to our heart.
Life is about learning to navigate your heart, your mind, your self-worth - as it interrelates to your whole being, with as much spiritual intellect that you can draw from and hold space for. Specifically identify what makes you feel centered and grounded. It’s time to adapt new ways of seeing yourself, by integrating new modalities and thought patterns that enable you to shift, so to accelerate healing and wholeness.
“Like a garden, what we don’t tend to becomes overrun.”
Navigation is something my ancestors mastered through their travels to what is now the Hawaiian Islands. They were able to navigate by nothing more than the stars to guide them over a vast sea. With that, they gained the confidence of true knowing; it was the pulse of faith in the divine that guided them.
In this modern age do we have what it takes to recreate this mindset?
I say absolutely!
This time of enlightenment is through personal growth, adaption to truth and spiritual progress. Let it rise and elevate you to the consciousness of knowing.
The thoughts we process imprint on our psyche: Choose them wisely; they will inevitably become part of your fiber, your being and so much more. Thoughts take precedence over actions, treat them with respect.
Expand vs. Evolve: What do you wish for, what are you clear about, what needs release? Push in the direction of your truth, leaving insecurity and security (at times) behind by staying flexible; embrace what organically transpires.
This is a “big picture” time, one that’s for the greater good both for self and society – think long term vision, plan and pull-through. This is not about recreating you or your offerings, it’s about birthing what has always been there, whether you’ve recognized it or not. Learn to draw from your intuitive awareness; let it rise within you as a reminder to stay in a positive, conscious state.
The conscious only knows to revert to the past. With that said, the subconscious is the only place where change can be made.
“Learn to value heart over mind. Recalibrate self through meditation or prayer.”
This year is about trusting your inherent guidance system. Trust that involves neutrality, faith and repetition – day to day, minute to minute. Change your outlook on impermanence by welcoming every experience as a life unto itself and by avoiding preoccupation with challenges to the exclusion of all else. By doing so, we will produce a life of reverence and humility that serves each of us.
“Neutrality is a life raft.”
Remember: You are the one we’ve been waiting for.
