The start of a magical New Year that is 2022
….words have seemed to fail me over the last few months not from lack of wanting to write, (I always want to write) but a lack of both time, free space and clarity. Can some one clarify the current economic and health status of the world to me? What exactly is going on with our world right now? I’m confused at how we’ve allowed ourselves to get here, to a point we are so riddled with fear collectively we will stop standing near and close to people, we will cover our mouths to stop breathing in fresh air. Try as I might everyday to live with blinkers on but it’s there… the current state of our world, in my mind. Some days more than others. Sometimes and mostly instigated by people online, (sorry for being that person right now)
I pray for a world that accepts and promotes freedom of choice
and I always, absolutely always come back to this:
Trusting that everything is going to be okay even if it means we ride through more storms, even if it means walking through something hard to get out of the other end. I trust in us, in the good of human kind ultimately. I don’t care if I will be called naive for that but that is my truth.
I’ll advocate for freedom of choice through my words and actions each day and I’ll hope that is enough day by day to build on what I believe is a better world for all.
I know for sure my appreciation and love for the smallest moments, the days spent feeling at peace, walking in heels on a cobbled stone road in a city I love, a hot cup of coffee warming my cold hands, while sitting outside a quirky cafe with a fluffy coat and the feel of the crisp winter air refreshing me…. mmmm I will take that any day. I know for sure those moments count, they matter for something.
One thing I know I have, is a love for life and a love for humans deep within me and I believe intrinsically that humans are good. We are good people I know we are. We have these hearts that beat, allowing us to create and bring life into existence that’s pretty damn amazing in my eyes and gets me every time.
When I put my hands to the keys of my Macbook Pro tonight I did not think I would be writing about the current state of the world in direct link to joy…but here I am. I intended to write with love and offer a slice of love, calm, peace and inspiration, instead my hands had different ideas and I thought I ‘d best go with it as it must need to be said.
Agree with me or not that doesn’t matter. What matters is that you are here, you’ve made it to January 2022 with a beautiful wildly alive, beating heart, love to give and a life to live. Thats pretty amazing. Because life is for living in any way we can. In any way we can enjoy it, love it, and adore it. It’s not meant to be endured through stress and strain that’s not the point at all. That lowers our vibration and means and reasons to be here and do any good at all.
A reminder that the only way we can truly do any good in this world is if we are vibrating higher and the way we do that is through our joy, our happiness, our peace and our contentment. If we radiate that we radiate it out into the world, in little ways here and there and we add to the collective. We each are the answer to exactly what we are looking for. For the change we all seek and want from life and this world, it has to start from each of us first and I strongly believe that from the bottom of my heart. And that’s all I have to say … start with finding joy each day, radiate joy, don’t force it just allow it. It is like a muscle the more we use it the stronger it gets. The more we do that, it’s catching. Joy is truly catching just as fear is. Let’s catch the world alight with joy….
Don’t stand in your own way of happiness. Stop second guessing yourself and reassessing everything. Just allow life to unfold for you and make sure to seek joy in every endeavour.
How can I make this everyday routine task enjoyable?
How can I bring fun and laughter into my life today?
How can I make my life more colourful, more joyful?
These are questions we should be asking ourselves everyday. We should not be dreading the day or wondering if it could get any worse, that’s exactly the opposite of why we are here. Another reason I think the news was made to sabotage all of us. Turn it off. And turn on and tune into you.
Last night I meditated for the first time in a couple months. I have neglected the most important part of me, through rushing around preparing and worrying about Christmas, birthdays and the new house and life, I forgot about the importance of being connected to myself. And last night after deciding to start back with one of my courses I was reminded to meditate. It’s that meditation that brought me here, back to myself, the one thing that has always sparked joy within me, and that’s writing.
It is absolutely okay to feel low, did you ever think that maybe the reason you or I might feel low is because feeling low is physical symptom. Your body shows you through low mood when you need to change and shift your energy? (When there is a build of stagnant negative energy). This is pretty normal as we are human energy magnets and we hang on to energy from people and places whether good of bad.
We’ve never been taught this but it is so important to cleanse our energy regularly. There are so many ways to do this but that’s for another post. One way I personally love to change my energy is through dance and a specific intention cleansing mediation. It’s powerful to realise that you feel low, it’s a sign of self awareness and that you need to change your energy. Your body is amazing at helping you recognise what you need. You can change your energy and come back to yourself. We can all benefit from cleansing the negative stagnant energy of 2021 that is clinging onto to us and bring in the new positive energy of 2022 that is here and ready for all of us to tap into.
I would love to come back here and write full time again, but the reality of this want of mine is another story. I am pulled in a lot of different directions at the moment and it means my time has been cut short to have time to write here. I am also aware how fickle life is and am hoping this will change soon. The only reason I have had a moment to come here is because Daniel is still off from working away and without him here my time is limited to devote to my writing here. The kids certainly won’t look after themselves, will they?
Again this all boils down to trust for me. I trust that in my life right now that everything is working out for me for the greatest good of myself and all around me. It’s an affirmation I try to remind myself of many many times a day, a week. Affirmations are a way to reassure yourself that you are at the right place at the right time. There is no rush, enjoy your ‘now’ moment. My ‘now’ moment is pretty beautiful. I am learning more and more to get back into it. Sometimes I don’t of course. But mostly I live here in the now, not anxiously waiting for the husband to return to working away or come home from working away, or anxiously waiting for me to feel like I am not reaching my potential.
This is life, real, raw, unforgiving, yet magical. There is always moments of magic. I see them always. In my children’s laughter and giggles, in the physical creation of a peaceful warm home, in a warm bath on a winters day, in the words wrapped up beautifully in a book by an author who decided to write. Life is magic, but we have to choose to see the magic.
I am going to keep choosing that and trust that all is going to be okay in 2022 for all of us. It is my hope, or my wish for 2022 that it is to be the year that works out for the greatest good of all of us.
All my love and I hope this essay as it has turned out to be gives you hope, love and reminds you to seek your joy day to day and to look for magic in your day no matter what. All the while finding ways that support you in cleansing your space and yourself, because this plays an important role in your vibrational frequency, and your alignment to the experiences and situations you find yourselves in, in your everyday life.
