October is here and many people feel ready to see the end of 2016. It’s been a huge year. That’s right, it may have felt like it was just you, but it’s actually been BIG for everybody.
We’ve all been going through a time of great upheaval.
Change is afoot and is affecting our lives in a major way. People are moving house, changing jobs, getting fired, ending relationships, getting sick, recovering. And this is all part of the energetic plan for 2016.
2016 is a completion year. It’s a 9 year.
The meaning of 9
A 9 year is all about endings, resolution and completion. We get the chance to change what is not working in our lives, and if we don’t then we’ll get the old kick up the bum from the universe and it’ll happen anyway. Many people, who haven’t been proactively changing aspects of life that aren’t working, are now experiencing a sort of divine storm, bringing about the change that’s required.
We’re setting the stage for the way we truly want to live – the way our soul intended. And the way we go into 2017 determines the platform for the next stage of our lives.
This is a great time to embrace change. To no longer put off the things you’ve wanted to do. To follow your heart’s desires and to slow down, and listen to your soul. It’s calling to you; but it whispers, sending subtle messages to you which can be easily missed.
It would serve us too, in this completion year, to review any pain we hold in our hearts. This is a year to leave the past behind us, however we can only truly do that through forgiveness. Forgiveness gives us the gift of letting go of the past through love, instead of burying it and hoping it’s no longer affecting us.
How to create more ease
- Try as best you can to accept change into your life as quickly as you notice it occurring. For it’s the resistance of change which brings about our suffering.
- Reflect back on the changes that have been occurring and find aspects to be thankful for.
- Review your past heartbreaks and pain from a place of loving compassion and understanding. Try to see the perspective of another and allow them to be a human just like you, who may not have all of the answers and is just doing their best.
- Meditate on how you would like your life to be. What’s important to you at the end of the day? And how could your life reflect this more?
What does this mean for October?
October is our chance to take flight. Changes are still occurring however many have been made and this invites next year’s 1 energy into our reality. That’s where the fun begins!
This month is your chance to follow those little urges of the heart, and the universe will be right with you holding your hand, and encouraging you every step of the way. Following your calling and your soul’s path will be easier, so even if there’s something that you feel has ‘failed’ in the past, yet your heart still yearns for it – go for it now. All is aligning for a higher path, one of happiness and fulfillment. All it takes from each of us is courage.
A note to go away with
It’s been a stressful time for a lot of people, so lets remember that and help each other out a little. If a waitress snaps at you or someone cuts you off in traffic, why not try and send them some love, instead of reacting and biting back. You never know what’s going on for them and what kind of day they’ve had.
Soften into your heart and let yourself dream. What does your heart want to do? Your soul’s urges are often not big profound actions, they’re small and joyful, and often the greater path will not be revealed until you’ve been following your small urges first.
Now is the time for flight.
