With a deep exhale, you have permission to release 2020.  We are grateful for all the lessons and blessings of last year.  We have gained all we need and look forward with optimism to a new year. 

In this coming year, let us reflect on a few things.  Ask yourself honestly:
 
-What truly matters to me?
-What kind of world do I wish to live in, and how do I create it?
-Who do I want to be in this world, knowing I've evolved beyond who I was?
-How can I bring my gifts into this world to benefit/elevate us all?
 
As with any chaos, it always leads to creation.  In fact, creation is born from chaos.  Big Bang Theory, anyone? :)  Knowing this, we can see that current events are a catalyst for growth necessitated for humanity's evolution.
 
Knowing this, we can see when things get torn down, they get re-built.  So let us envision a 2021 of Peace, Love, and Equality.
 
May 2020 be the year of divisiveness and distraction; may the hate and intolerance lie in the past.  May we see a future with renewed eyes, and renewed possibilities.  May we choose Love over Fear.  May we allow Love to guide all our decisions and allow Love to be the filter through which we see each other.
 
Just because things were a way in the past, does not mean it has to continue.  In the same way our cells are constantly turning over and our bodies renewed, we too are constantly evolving and learning.  Do we learn through joy or pain?  That is our choice.  
 
May we choose a better future for us all, by seeing ourselves in one another.  What we do to each other, we do to ourselves.  When we hate each other, we hate ourselves.  Let Love guide us, not Fear.  May we be soft with ourselves and each other.  May we forgive ourselves and each other.  May we release what no longer serves us and look forward in joyful anticipation to a world we create through Love.
 
May we remember the purpose of Life is to serve Life, and choose to love each other compassionately and unconditionally.  We can either accept people as they are, or not accept ourselves, for there is no separation between any of us.  We are One.  Like cells in a human body, always working together for optimal health, we too are the cells of humanity.  Working together for the highest good of ALL is the imperative.  Fighting each other is cancerous.  
 
Let us not be cancerous this year, but allow our Love to flow to places it has not yet been.  May we work together for the highest good of ALL Life on Earth.  The choice is ours, and no one can do it for us.  This year, may we all choose Love over Fear. ❤️

After my Traumatic Brain Injury a few years ago, I suddenly lost abilities that we take for granted every day.  I found myself no longer able to predict outcomes (i.e. if I walk in front of traffic, I'll get hit by a car, etc.), the link between cause & effect was broken.  I could not foresee 5 minutes from now.  My world was a thick fog and I could not see in front of me.  

Unfortunately, I still had to make decisions:  Where do I go from here?  Do I eat this falafel?  Do I take legal action against my former employer for disability discrimination & wrongful termination?  Do I pay my credit cards or my rent?  Can I trust what this person is telling me?
 
My inability to see a path forward did not negate the need for decisions to be made.  Without the cognitive ability for logical, rational thought, I followed my body's intelligence to find the answer....
 
This is what I found... 
 
When facing a decision, let your bodily reaction guide you.  For example, if one possibility makes you feel anxious, causes a racing heart, dread, fear, sweaty palms, nausea, a sinking feeling, etc.  This is your intuition telling you "ABORT!".  What you're feeling is fear, and fear-based decisions are ALWAYS subpar & damaging.
 
If when facing a decision, your body feels relaxed, you can breathe easily, like you're in a warm bath tub of security, perhaps you feel joyful anticipation or clear non-resistance, this is your intuition telling you "GO FOR IT!".  What you're feeling is Love, and we only ever have two choices in life:  Love or Fear.  Love-based decisions are in alignment with the Highest Good of all involved.  Actions based in Love heal the world.
 
We already possess the knowingness of what's in our highest good.  All we have to do is stop, breathe deep, sink into our heart, connect to our intuition and listen for the answer via our body's response.
 
Years later, now that my cognition has returned, I STILL rely on my intuition for decision-making, as it has proven time & again to never lead me astray.
 
This power, this ability is your birthright.  Use the magic within you in ways you never thought possible.  When you go inside for the answers, instead of looking to others, you Take Your Power Back. ❤️

Hollywood teaches us a romantic tale of what perfect love is.  What we see in the movies is not real life.  Seeking someone to "complete" you will keep you forever feeling "incomplete".
 
When we seek externally, we are searching for someone to fill our void.  We are forfeiting ourselves, thinking a stranger can give us ourselves back.  

When you're looking outside yourself for someone, it is resulting from a disconnection from Source.  It is not another person you seek, as no one can give you your missing pieces.  You are seeking your Oneness and connection with Source, but have confused it for the "one".  There is no one out there to complete us, only Source can do that, because with Source we are already complete.  There is no one out there who exists for us.  There is nothing to be gained from anyone (to fill our void), as no one can give us anything (to fill our void).  It is no one's responsibility to "be" anything to or for us.   

Everything we need, we already possess.
 
When we externalize our power, by giving ourselves to someone in the hopes they will witness us, validate us, and return us to ourselves, we are keeping ourselves trapped in the very dynamic that we're trying to remedy.  We want to heal this feeling of missing something, but we're looking in the wrong place, and therefore will always be "missing" something.
 
When you find yourself in this situation, the best course of action is to "go home" to yourself.  Take a deep breath, sink in to your heart, and feel your connection to Source, to Oneness.  The treasure lies within.
 
But it's not safe in there!  I don't like myself, which is why I'm looking for someone to ease my pain and to love me.
 
Point taken.  But if you don't like yourself, how can you expect anyone else to like you?  If you don't love yourself, how can anyone love you?  How can you love anyone if you don't love yourself first?  If you cannot unconditionally accept yourself, you never will anyone else.  You must love yourself first.
 
We've been lied to about what's real in this world.  As long as we allow the lullaby to keep us asleep, we'll never break out of this pattern, this structure that binds us to the belief that we're insufficient. 
 
Once you realize there's no missing part of you that can be retrieved from anyone else, you'll stop putting all your stock in someone else to fill your void and "save" you.  Truthfully, putting this onus on someone else is energetic abuse.  What goes out comes back, so it's best to be your own gatekeeper and be mindful of the tragic, fatalistic need we project onto others.
 
No one can give us anything.  Other than a learning experience.  But our healing, our retrieving of our missing pieces, can only come from within.
 
It is safe for you to "go home" to yourself.
