A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. ~ Albert Einstein
I've been discussing how 2012 is very much about shifts and the questions that life has been bringing us with others and here on this blog. Now, I'd like to discuss how we need to come up with answers to our questions, as I believe our healing, both on an inner and outer level, depends on actually answering them.
I'd like to focus at this time on the physical level. I believe that if we take steps to slow down, and find inward calm then we can approach the outer world from a more settled mind. Then we'll be able to help others to take similar steps. Simple actions, such as regular meditation, exercise like yoga, reading instead of television, and making space in your life for family and friends can help you to feel better emotionally, inwardly, spiritually and physically.
You may have been having guiding dreams related to what I'm talking about. These dreams can help you to find answers to your life questions. Perhaps you've even had a series of dreams and outer reminders about stress, relationships and other issues, especially those surrounding your health needs. Others, perhaps unasked, may be making recommendations to you. But, somehow you're able to tune out these reminders and push off potential changes, even when knowing they'll be helpful. However, Numerologically, quality time can now be spent considering your self-care routine, which can help foster your healing and growth.
Of course, your dreams may also be related to many other mental, emotional or spiritual issues. Yet, no matter the issue, it can eventually take a toll on physical health, especially when it's related to worry, doubt and anxiety. So, again, if you're being nudged to make changes, inwardly by dreams or outwardly by others, it can be important and rewarding to make a connection with your dreams. It's really about recognizing that the separation between what you and I think of as the unconscious and waking reality is thin. And, that's what I believe Albert was talking about. Everything is connected.
Your dreams are offering guidance and they always have. And as the Numerological theme for 2012 is related to the mystery, magic and mystical in life, you can connect to your own magic by paying attention to your dreams and the wisdom they bring. It's also about recognizing that your dreams are actually bringing your own inner knowledge, which you need for your outer life, and it can also be valuable to others.
Early in 2012 I had a simple, yet powerful healing dream, which I'm still learning from. In the dream I saw a smoky and charred frozen food box in the oven. The oven was on, but there was no fire. That was it. I'd already been making many new food choices, but in reality I was relying on too many frozen and quick cook options. I've since started cooking more of my own food. I recognized the dream as a real opportunity to make a “healthy choice” in my eating habits. And, I know I have more work to do too.
I'm focusing on healing and physical needs because 2013 brings with it opportunities for clearing and healing on a deeply personal level. While 2012 is allowing us to look at changes within our lives, and how we actually have greater influence on the world around us than we know, 2013 will allow us to reconnect and make space for comfort, life, relationships, love and family. This is in itself can be very rejuvenating.
Since 2013 is Numerologically related to relationship and connections, connection will be an important issue in 2013. However, you'll need to be able to make yourself fully available, rather than just connecting on a superficial level. Again, our dreams can reflect the true changes that our lives need for shifting or growth. Some of your healing work may involve recognizing when you let yourself hide from being truly present. And, healing work for many of us may involve addressing the Shadow.
Personal satisfaction with life is often fostered by reconnecting with the activities and people that bring happiness and joy. So, being involved in community, especially where it's connected to the heart, can help you to step more deeply into life. What's exciting is that people like Professor Nicholas Chistakis have done research showing that each additional happy person in your social circle makes you happier! In other words, happiness is contagious! Energetically, you'll feel pulled to spend more time with those who are close to you.
However, the challenge for many may be to make space for social time. That may involve slowing down, finding ways to believe in yourself, or healing family issues. Whatever your challenge is, remember that healing can take compassion, patience and time. Of course, not all issues will have a simple fix, but the first steps may require that you want to heal. Healing does require compassion, especially for ourselves. We have to believe that we're worth it! But, as we heal and share ourselves, we can bring about changes in the outer world we never expected.
As we're approaching 2013 you may want to focus on the following healing related questions:
- How am I spending my free time?
- Who am I spending my free time with?
- What is my impact on my world?
- What activities or events help me to truly feel alive?
- What message do I have for healing that I'm not yet sharing?
- What daily practice do I have to connect with the mystery of my own life?
- Are there any healing communities that I've held back on joining?
- What area of my life can benefit the most right now?
- Am I paying attention to my dreams?
- What divination tools am I using to help navigate my life?
- How can I bring my healing to others
- How can I help to heal my family and community?
You can also benefit by reviewing your Numerology Personal Year at this time. What is its theme? You might want to evaluate where it might conflict with the Universal Year theme of 2012 and 2013. Also, where does it energetically match up with the themes of these two years. If there is a conflict, some of what you're working on might seem challenging. But, with a little persistence, patience and compassion, you should be able to reach your goals. Again, it's really about valuing and believing in yourself and your abilities and honoring your dreams!
