For me, getting ready for a New Year all seems to start with the November season of giving thanks. With the fullness surrounding me in Nature during autumn, I start to crack open. I believe the power of Gratitude is the catalyst that opens me. I begin to hear whisperings of what is to come for my personal new year. In the beginning, these caught me by surprise, now I keep one ear tuned for these whispers, and look forward to hearing what theme my soul believes I am ready to dive into.
I encourage each of you to find time to listen. In our December culture that is not so easy and takes a determined effort. Try a silent walk at night. The night sky is potent and holds dreams and visions for you. Be still. Listen quietly, calmly. Practice silence. Set aside time for your own private Silent Night. The theme for your new year is all lined up and ready. Reach out and catch it!
