This New Year actually feels new. However, it didn’t start off easily. Although we stayed home and intentionally avoided any celebrations, it wasn’t about laziness or a desire to avoid crowds. It seemed more appropriate to be quiet and meet the energy of a new phase. There were some glitches, such as our clothes dryer quitting, and a certain lack of smoothness in the flow of traffic. When energy frequencies change, life is often out of balance for a while. The beginning of a new year seems culturally arbitrary; however, whether it’s the beginning of a natural cycle or a cultural one, the need to re-balance is real enough. Maybe its wishful thinking but 2015 feels full of unknown potential.
As this year unfolds, my hope is to step through the magic door while avoiding a trip down the rabbit hole. I’ve certainly done enough of that to fulfill my karmic debts. This promises to be unknown. NO, I’m not planning to passively wait for the magic, but it vibrates with potential. The landscape on this side of whatever threshold we’ve crossed feels genuinely unfamiliar, and that’s a good thing.
I should know by now, lessons are repeated until they take. My lesson is about faith in my life direction and realization that when I stay in my power-zone it works out. When I fall back into worry and trivia things start falling apart. It’s all about the flow of energy. Lifetimes of false responsibility are hard to dislodge. Now I want to talk about demons.
I’m beginning to think there are good demons and junk demons. I suspect the good demons use the junk demons to herd us down the trail of a learning experience even though we might find ourselves in a path full of rocks thrown in our way by the bad guys. I’m not going to claim any metaphysical authenticity for this view it’s just a thought-provoking concept for now. The good demon guys often create problems and send us on wild goose chases and over slippery slopes but they do this because when things run smoothly we can’t see our limitations and stupidity. I hate to say this, but if you are highly successful in your evil ways and nothing happens to change your circumstances, your spirit guides have probably given up on you and you will find yourself drafted as slaves to an army of junk demons. In another blog, I referred to one type as black smoke beings. You can punch your fist through them but you can’t see through them, they are ever hungry and never satisfied.
When you want to move your reality in a healing, creative direction, the thoughts, beliefs, fears and prejudices that you take for granted will go through the sieve of another reality. Not all at once, mind you, but in manageable portions. Then, just when you think you are pretty clean, a big chunk will get stuck and refuse to be break down for the sieve. Now, do you really want to put up with this, or do you want to go back to your previous comfort zone. Technically, you have a choice, but in reality things will never be the same again and you will be stuck in limbo if you try to regress.
So what does this have to do with 2015? I don’t know, just found myself suddenly going down that thought stream. Possibly 2015 is going to be a time for sorting our personal reality from our personal non-reality so that we can get on with the business of this newish cycle that began at the end of 2012.
Here is a quote from the Sufi Mystic Rumi:
I used to be raw,
Then I was cooked,
I am on fire.
Then I was cooked,
I am on fire.
That is my goal this year.
