The Chinese New Year begins on 4th February 2016. It marks the point in time when the energy in our environment changes and shifts powerfully. Just as there is time-based information out there to tell us when the sun rises and sets (which we all feel the effect of each day), this particular date shows an equally impactful and big change energetically. So what’s the big deal? Good question! 🙂
Each year has an energy that affects how we feel and operate, it shows up in our environment which in turn affects us too. So for example in 2015 the year of the Wood Sheep many people were feeling an overall heaviness, a little drained or tired, or slightly more challenged motivationally. Was this you? Others however who had a particular Wood Tiger energy in their charts were able to move and power forwards with verve and achieve things that made it a year one would say ‘rocked!’ The combination of these energies of Wood and Sheep left many of us decluttering massively or experiencing events that led to ‘us being decluttered’ by life without even choosing to do so.
We are moving into 2016 where there are two very different energies from the current year coming through, so this in the energy masters world is definitely a big deal. Imagine if you were a fish and you had been swimming in saltwater all year. Imagine now that you were now about to hit a point in time when the water you were swimming in was about to change massively from saltwater to freshwater. Wow right! That is similar to moving from a Wood Sheep year to a Fire Monkey year which is effectively what’s about to happen. So yes it’s a big deal J
So that is the big deal. If you knew you were about to move metaphorically speaking from saltwater to freshwater, wouldn’t you want to prepare to make sure you could adapt and move smoothly from one to the other. As human beings in our modern lives rushing from one thing to another we often forget that some of the most powerful factors affecting our lives are things not obvious or visibly seen….such as energy and our environments.
Okay I hear you….you’re on board…you’re convinced 🙂 Next question. So how will the Fire Monkey year affect us? And what do we need to do to prepare?
Well, for a start take stock. Stop! Remember energetic changes affect our bodies physically, emotions can go up or down or both, and mentally our thinking takes a shift too with new thoughts, questions and challenges or lifts, and finally spiritually we can feel different even if it’s just a feeling or sense of knowing.
So my request to you first and foremost is to become aware of what’s happening for you, and then give yourself permission to experience things without judgment. Now, this could be seen as a ‘woohoo’ hippie feeling type of thing to say right? Or it could be seen as a grounding, realist and a practical approach to being human amongst change. These perspectives are polar opposites and I invite you to take either one on as long as it benefits you and eases you through the change period.
We all have been through one New Years’ already on the 1st of January 2016 where we set goals and were excited about the year ahead…and then began to fall down or slip on a few of them. Here is your opportunity to get back up there and pick up your excitement about the possibilities for YOU! Yes possibilities and opportunities, because you have 365 new days and 365 new chances to begin again having learned what doesn’t work.
For example, you may have gone to the gym 5 days in that first week, 4 the next and a few weeks later….gym? What gym? Well, how about we put something more realistic in place like you find a friend who wants to go with you so you can motivate each other, and decide to go just once or twice a week. See the possibilities, my friends?! J Isn’t that exciting!
And the Fire Monkey brings with him energy…. High energy that you can tap into if you choose to. Remember it won’t just happen to you, you have to choose to tap into it and take action. Do it today.
My final tip on this occasion is, this is a good year for you to take a look at your money and finances….I encourage you to set some good habits in place for yourself. Look at how you have done things for the last three years and decide what has worked and what hasn’t. Keep the good and decide to do differently what hasn’t worked for you. And please, please HAVE FUN with this. Fire monkey is intense and can be fun too.
And if you would like a little help with all of this then take a look at the Event’s Page and you might want to consider coming to my Retreat Weekend at the end of February where we will be immersing ourselves in doing this very thing – preparing for 2016 and powering up your year. Message me if you’d like to come and have a master help you, either way, I wish you a magnificent 2016. 365 new days with 365 new chances.
