It’s officially 2020! The countdown seems to have lasted forever, but the year that was 2019 is officially in the past.
Waking up on New Year’s Day, the energy was already different. There seemed to be more of a hum, then a constant buzz for me, but that doesn’t mean that the world that was 2019 has ended, but we are on to the next chapter.
If you follow astrology, you know that 2020 has plenty to experience. There will be many planetary meetings in the sky. Saturn, the planet of Karma, will continue to reveal our path and what we need to work on.
For me, 2019 felt like the year of challenges and lessons. If you look at it from a numerological perspective, it had the world energy of a 3, but for me it was a personal year of 4. I am a 1 life path and I felt every bit of the challenge in those numbers. This year will be a 5 year for me and I’m looking forward to the natural match energy to my life path. However, 2019 gave me the gift of exploration. I was forced to look back at my past and what I wanted my future to be. I had to work through all the emotional attachments to past events. The coaching certification program that I enrolled in is based on the work of Dr. David Hawkins entitled Power vs. Force. Dr. Hawkins examined human behavior and our bodies’ reaction to trauma. He then placed the basic emotions on a map and assigned them on a scale up to 1000. These emotions range from Shame to Enlightenment.
Most of us, I’m sure you’re included, want to skip all the way up to Enlightenment. It is crappy to experience Shame, Guilt, Apathy, Grief, Fear or Anger. The problem with our way of thinking is those emotions are still there. I had spent so much time learning to come from a place of optimism and positivity that I hadn’t taken the time to acknowledge the hurt. Once I did, space began to open. Did everything I want to come through at once? I wish, but I had to peel the layers away and tackle the next emotion.
The last few years and 2020 will be included, have been forcing all of us to examine our past. You may not like it, I know I certainly haven’t, but we are being called to shift to a new perspective. A new way of looking at things. We can either continue to resist or you can open a new door. A new possibility. So many of us start the new year off with a resolution. A friend of mine a few years ago mentioned that at the end of the previous year she assigns a word for what she wants to experience the next year. It is this practice that I have been playing with. My word for 2020 is expansion. I want to continue to expand my life and those experiences that make up who I am.
Wouldn’t you like to make 2020 the year where you took a step to releasing the baggage that is your past? I’m right there with you. I continue to do this work every day. At first it is a challenge, but like anything it gets easier.
