The Little Book of Daily Guidance and
The Secret Language of Colour by Inna Segal.
I hope it resonates and brings you peace and the occasional
smile! Enjoy! It's going to be an amazing year!
As I peered into the collective unconscious and petitioned for
Divine Guidance for 2016, the first thing I saw was the sky,
filled with clouds. But as I watched closely, I could see that
the clouds were slowly parting. Only, instead of revealing a
clear blue sky, I saw that they were parting only to reveal
another layer of cloudiness. Stay with me here. I know this
doesn't sound great but it gets better.
Immediately, my guides are asking me to bring to our attention the fact that we are currently placing too much emphasis on waiting to be told what's going to happen next, rather than fully embracing our role as co-creators! How did you feel when you thought I was going to say that this year would be grim and cloudy!? Are you still waiting for someone else to tell you when the sun is going to shine in your life? It is only our thoughts, our consciousness, and ultimately, our lack of self-empowerment that are currently creating this lack of clarity, both in the collective field and in our individual, personal lives. It is not something that is "being done to us".
So the message for this year is most certainly a message of clear thinking, self empowerment and taking responsibility for our thoughts, and ultimately our own experience.
I'm told, we are too quick to look outside ourselves for answers, and that it is precisely this consciousness that has placed us in our current predicament, personally, politically, spiritually, emotionally and within our current economic and existential crises. Yet they are all illusions. Clouds painted upon a misty horizon.
2016 will be the year of tearing down illusions. 2016 will be the year of personal responsibility.
My guides are asking me to reassure everyone that this doesn't mean we will be left alone, abandoned or chastised, as we attempt to learn this lesson of personal and collective responsibility. We will be loved, supported and gently guided back to our own personal, inner truth, time and time again. We will be reminded of our powerful co-creative capacity, again and again in 2016. It's time, now, to find ways to move forward, and to stop looking for answers in the sky - although many will come, if you ask in full faith, always believing. But it is essential to continue taking action and understanding the role you play in petitioning assistance rather than simply asking "What's going to happen next??!" It's time for us to use the cosmic forces and tools available to us, to increase our understanding of the energies at work rather than to dictate our outcomes for us.
This is the year when YOU get to decide what life to make, both personally and collectively!
I ask for a series of messages from The Little Book of Daily Guidance that will bring more detail and clarity to these themes, and I immediately hear, loud and clear,
"23, 63, 14". So let's explore the first message.
23 - Adventure!
The appearance of this message at the beginning of a new year is just perfect! It tells me that there are many of us who feel poised on the brink of a new adventure. This kind of optimism is not unusual at this time of year, however, there is a strong indication that many of us are feeling a growing anticipation that we have not felt in many years. For many, the last five years or so will have felt like preparation for the year that is to come.
For some of us, it will feel as if we have spent our entire lives preparing for the adventure that is about to begin. It's time, now, to embrace the highest expression and the most exciting meaning of 'adventure' that we can possibly dare to dream of. It's time, time, time!
Time to move ahead, now, with plans that most likely began to firm up in our minds towards the end of 2015, as we finally began to grow into a new phase of self-acceptance, self-confidence, maturity and courage. A clear sky opens up and we find a positive way forward when we begin to believe in ourselves once again. Then we open our minds to the possibility that we can walk away from all cloudiness, drama and confusion. We've done the inner work and preparation. A new adventure is about to begin. Amen!
The second message is:
63 - Just Say No!
On a personal level, this message is a reminder to us all that a large part of taking responsibility is saying NO! A strong, clear no to the things we don't wish to sustain in our reality. For some, this will mean walking away from an unhealthy work situation, a painful relationship or a toxic living situation, maybe even all three! For some, it will mean learning, once and for all, how to transform the energies within and around us, so that we are no longer affected by external negativity.
For almost all of us, there will be a need to create better boundaries in practical ways, through self-containment and self-sufficiency. In other words, when we are completely independent and autonomous in our lives, it becomes much easier to resist the external energies of those people or systems that wish to bully, control or coerce us.
This also applies to events on the world stage. Just as an example, a kind of analogy: on the one hand we have the choice of fretting about the shenanigans of the dark forces and infecting others with our fear - thereby feeding the very forces we do not want in our lives with more of our precious energy. While, on the other hand, we might be better off investing our energy in creating an off grid, self-sufficient community, thereby resisting the controlling agenda of the status quo.
For some, this will be the year to have a visceral experience of the many ways that we are constantly creating our reality, minute by minute. I now see the image of words, ideas, knowledge being lifted from the pages of a book and integrated into our hearts, at long last!
For many, this will be the first time that we realise how to say no to others, simply by saying yes to ourselves. In other words, we will finally find the self-loving key opens a door on new perspectives, and begin to see everything and everyone in our lives very differently indeed! From a place of self love and total personal empowerment.
Many others will have a personal, first hand experiences of other dimensions, and contact from other planets and star systems. This will definitely help to shape their ideas about 'reality'. :) As we say no to the old reality, the new will begin to emerge more strongly.
So, for some of us, there will be many practical and externalised manifestations of "saying no" - both personally and collectively.
While, for others, there will be a direct and personal experience of seeding and shaping new worlds and new realities on the inner planes of understanding and existence. .
Phew! There's a LOT happening in 2016. I can promise you that!
The final message I was given from The Little Book of Daily Guidance, was:
14 ~ Celebrate Life.
This is a reminder that, as we move through this year, learning how to come into full maturity, both as individuals wishing to go for our dreams and as a collective, evolving body of consciousness, we must keep a clear vision of the positive outcomes we wish to create.
While learning to say no to something negative, it is also important to learn how to say yes to something positive.
For those of us who have always been motivated into action by the pressing need to run away from restriction and pain, it's time to find a more positive way of motivating ourselves to make changes. If you are someone who always seems to be running away from discomfort, try using the "running towards" approach instead. In other words, forget about the toxic home, difficult relationship or soul-sucking job. They may have given you the strong motivation to formulate a new plan, but they do not belong in your consciousness now. The only purpose they can serve is as tools of education and contrast. If you are still using them as your prime motivation for moving forward into the greatest adventure of your life, what will you do on those days when the discomfort eases up a little? Will you lose your way again!? Will you forget what you were planning and why you were planning it?!
This year we are being asked NOT to be the person who is always running from pain and who, therefore, always needs a little more pain if they are to move ahead. The person who unwittingly takes that same pain with them wherever they go. These pains, these dramas, these emergencies, are the mists that cloud their consciousness and obscure those blue skies.
As much as possible, fill your consciousness with reasons to celebrate life. Allow your thoughts to dwell on your past successes and triumphs.. Focus on your most precious gifts and exciting talents. Build your brightest, boldest and most exciting dream. Think about the people you love and whose love is the very thing that pulled you through when things got really rough. Treat yourself to kind and happy thoughts and gestures along the way. It's time to stop escaping and start embracing!
In the collective sense, this is a reminder that it's important to keep our minds focused on the world we wish to create and not on the old one we see crumbling before our very eyes. It's time to rejoice as we begin creating the new, rather than depressing ourselves by lamenting the dark and devious ways of the old world.
Saying no to our current personal or collective reality doesn't always mean denial, burying our heads in the sand, or being inactive. It can simply mean this: "I recognise that this reality - either personal or collective - is based on fear, separation and my own belief that this is the best I can do. I am now deciding that I deserve much more. I refuse to allow this lower energy to dominate my consciousness or to control my thinking. " From this place of consciousness, the clouds will begin to clear to reveal the truth of the crystal clear, blue sky!
For many, this will be the year they finally build a bartering network, start a yoga school, become an activist or teacher, register to vote, create a community initiative, start that off grid, self sufficient, intentional community, begin a regular peace prayer circle, or a small publishing press for inspired messengers, start a news channel or make sure the world gets to read their words, hear their thoughts or listen to the music of their hearts. This is a year to let it be love and not 'the bomb' that brings us together. Oh, year of years, time of times. We are at the gateway of our unfolding!
Recognise that change is happening and accelerating all around us. Celebrate it! Seek out the good news and spread it like wild fire. Become a part of that change. Or get out your yoga mat/meditation cushion and become the change itself. Get vocal. Get active. Say no to the old world in the most spectacularly celebratory ways you can imagine, even if all you do is move house or change jobs!
In the personal sense, this means not just walking away from an uncomfortable situation with your tail between your legs, chastising yourself as you go, wondering where you went wrong. "How could I have let this happen? How could I have let them treat me this way for so long?!" Using the same old consciousness to assist you in wandering through a haze of recriminations, right into yet another "situation".
No, no, no, no, no!!! Not this year! In 2016, taking responsibility means pulling back your shoulders, lifting your head above the clouds, turning on your heals and wafting out in a cascade of feathers, perfume and sequins like a freakin' diva! Yes folks, this is the correct way to approach the greatest adventure of your lifetime! Like a boss! The boss of YOU!
At some point this year, you will have to face, trust and celebrate yourself as you really, truly are!
I decided to end the reading by selecting a card from The Secret Language of Colour, to see which of our chakras would be most actively speaking to us this year. Interestingly enough, I was given:
Coral - Allow Flow and Synchronicity into your life.
This is a perfect reminder that, even as we finally leap into the dream of our own highest creation, we must look for signs that this dream is supported. In other words, you send out your creation using your powerful creative rays from the sacral and sacred creative centre, and you look to see how the universe responds. If you have to keep forcing a thing to happen, stop, breath, watch, listen and wait to see what presents itself effortlessly.
In closing, it's time to let go of the past, dream a bigger dream, and forgive ourselves for every time we have faltered along the way and every mistake we have ever made in our search for truth. Is it really possible to make a mistake in the search for truth? :)
You are infinitely loved beyond all measure. Smile as you leap into 2016, the year of personal and collective responsibility, beyond all illusion!
