I thought I would share a few thoughts about my journey this past year as 2022 winds down and comes to a close.  

For over 20 years, I have walked an earth centered spiritual path, but this year, I deepened my practice, and my connection with nature in a more meaningful way than I ever have in the past. I truly lived the cycles and rhythms of each season, I energetically aligned with each lunation cycle and actually did the work that I talk about in my Moon Magick™ Energy Forecasts and as a result, I have experienced some major shifts in my life.  Amazing, positive and powerful shifts.

The year has been a year filled with joy and new experiences, and I feel like I have finally come into my own.  I know that might sound a bit crazy, I am finally coming into my own at 53, but it's true, I have never felt healthier, freer or more alive than I have this past year. 

I want to be clear--even though there was an abundance of great things and plenty of love, joy and growth, that doesn't mean that everything was always rainbows and sunshine.  

I did a lot of work.

Hard work, that included overcoming fears and all kinds of shedding of old thoughts, beliefs, habits and even relationships.  The work took me out of my comfort zone more times than I care to count, and honestly, most of it was really hard.  There were days when I wrote in my journal and wept for what felt like hours, sitting with the grief of letting go of things that had once meant so much to me, but were no longer energetically aligned with the life I was creating for myself.

The thing that kept me going was the deep knowing that everything has a season.  

The knowing that if we are willing to surrender to the Divine flow, to trust that its ok to let go when it is clear that it is time to let go, it opens up space for new and wondrous things to come forward.  And they do!

It doesn't mean those things whose season has passed weren't important, in fact, it's just the opposite, they were very important.  It also doesn't mean they are gone forever, because the dance of life is a spiral dance and often times, when we least expect it, the spiral leads us back to the place we started, but with a healthier, more balanced energy so whatever is in that place can be experienced more fully than before.This is why I do this work - I want to share my own experience and the things I've learned to help others to know what is possible, not just for me, but for all of us--if we are willing to do the work and surrender when we are called to surrender.

It is my greatest wish that you are able to live a life that makes you feel healthier, freer and more alive than you ever have.  You deserve it!

I recently heard a quote that really resonated with me and pretty much sums up my experience of the past year.  I'll leave it here for you to ponder.

"If you do hard things, life will be easy.
If you do easy things, life will be hard."
~ Jay Alderton

I hope that in the coming year, you have the courage to do the hard things!  

Many, many blessings on your path!
