In the old days, Samhain was the end of the year. It’s fitting that it kicks off the holiday season and it’s nothing but gatherings around the fire and warm times with family and friends as the days grow shorter and the weather gets colder.
So perhaps I should keep in the old tradition and reflect on this past year in the wee hours of November 1. This year has been a phenomenal year because I was able to grow and let go of so much. And I’ve become a much gentler, loving, patient, kind person for it. I’ve learned to know when to have the grace to let things go and when to look within and see when a situation is my doing.
I had a very uncomfortable talk with a friend last night but what he said about healing really stuck with me. “Sometimes you have to separate yourself and become self sufficient for healing to happen. ” It stuck with me all day. I couldn’t stop thinking about it. It kind of put into perspective a lot of things I’ve been going through in my personal life. I spent almost two years doing just what he said. I was faced with a very serious challenge and it really hurt me. I cut off all my friends, went inside and dove deep into metaphysical studies and meditation.
This year, however, the healing that I did began to shine through. I now feel strong, confident and self sufficient. I would personally like to thank the Archangel archetypes, Michael, Gabrielle, Uriel and Raphael for helping me on this journey. Working with them closely has been a truly transforming experience.
Now that the healing process from all that hurt is almost complete, my life is going in new, exciting directions and I now have the tools I need to not sabotage myself with self defeating prophecies.
My New Years resolution is this: No more “I can’t.” From now it is “I can and I am.”
