December message of the month:  Endings, Beginnings, and Powerful Energy

December message of the month:  Endings, Beginnings, and Powerful Energy

By Shiela Reed

There has been so much going on the last few months it seems that as I ebbed and flowed through my own world and life, I realized no solid “message of the month” came to me in November.  I was very tuned in to my own Golden Jubilee birth month and the afterglow from an incredible journey to Europe – specifically United Kingdom and Ireland the previous month, that well….  I just accepted that nothing lengthy came of it.  Yet a few inspirational things I jotted down may be of significance –

November 1st – Don’t get caught up in comparisons:  whether with others or your own thoughts of an ideal past or future life.  It will only bring you down and you will suffer ego illusions.  Tricking you into thinking you have a “bad life”.

Our life is our own, we have the things to learn, we have things to see, and we are here in an effort to become aware and pay attention to it all at our own pace.

November 26th – “Feel more Blessed than Stressed – by having a heart full with gratitude”

So it seemed that with a sense of very clear “ending” in many aspects for November – there was an equal and balanced feeling of “new beginnings” right around the corner coming into December.  I was also reminded of a past reflection regarding the “power of intention” and the importance of remembering the true level of power that is actually behind them, even if we are not fully aware of them.  It can take us far into any direction – and although there is no “judgement” about it, we tend to say that there is a positive or negative associated with it, depending on what we see as the outcome.

The energies behind our intentions are very powerful… even if we don’t consciously notice or see them.  This also plays a part in what pulls us to our Future or ties us to our Past and thus can “make or break” our current moments in life.

So use it wisely, be aware, consider it thoroughly and make the choices that are true to you, helping you to be the best version of YOU and thus supports the higher good.  This is a strong support for both the ending and beginning.

November and December bring endings and beginnings

In the midst of endings often it is hard to remember that there is always an opening for new beginnings.  We just need to sometimes remember to trust in that.  It is interesting that November was already showing this “ending” and December was showing new beginnings since we are so usually focused on this at the actual end of the year.  But this shift has been significant for a reason.  The type of energy field that is transitioning is doing so as a kind of “final hurrah” as the new year will be bringing very different forms of thinking, processing, and “doing” in general.  There is still a huge learning curve to contend with, but the way I am understanding this to play out from November to December is specifically to give us a really clear “heads up” and kind of “last chance” to get some stuff in order and be more clear.  (revisit the above about the power of our intentions for example 😉)

Lots going on December 2019

While the feeling of change from November to December has been big and it has felt like the change of a year… with THAT still yet coming our way!

My research and promptings tell me to pay extra attention around the full moon (see link below), new moon, and year end change this year.  While there are always elements of significance with annual year shifts, this one feels as if it is meant to be a year of “new beginnings” creating a “new base” from which we will each build our new future.  So paying closer attention to where and how we spend our time and who with is important, because they all will have a lasting impact on our futures.

This is also true of where and how we spend our money.  Supporting places and/or things that do not fit with our own inner truths- will result in more of a noticeable sense of “pain” in some way because it violates our inner integrity and that is going to be more and more impossible to “ignore”.

I personally am making note of the need to pay attention to my own promptings even more than usual and trust them without question.  I have started that this month and while it would seem to usually be uncomfortable, there is a level assuredness- that helps me just “know” it is necessary, it is true, it will be well.  Even though I can feel elements of chaos floating all around me, I feel a strong sense of “due north” for myself right now.

Specifically- I’m tuning in to some additional training’s, speaking up, and looking at how setting my boundaries in all areas in the next few weeks is very necessary.  I feel the importance of connecting to astrological information,  and furthering my use of my crystals, oils, and natural elements.  This seems to be a good “training time” for us all.

So far, by already doing this, I have felt and seen movement in terms of what is coming into view for the next year and how that is and will be part of my expanding energy guidance and healing practice.

It continues to amaze me at the state of awareness I find myself blessed to be a witness to and how my heart knows already there is a benefit of this all, that it will be a greater help and support to others than I can even see or imagine.  It is there… in the future.. waiting for me.  I will arrive… see you soon. ❤

Here are a couple cool resources I found and have utilized that is interesting and speaks to much of this in greater detail if you are interested in deeper information.

December Message of the Month – Our Life

by Shiela Reed

Originally posted December 18th 2018  (how ironic that the website went down after posting this and I had to “reset it” to the the day before this – Dec 18th is the day my world started to change forever… I am glad to have been reminded to revisit this.. more true than I could have even imagined it was going to be.)

It’s our life after all… to make choices… for better or worse.. it will be “good” or not… we live it based on how we choose.

I’ve written before about choices …seems like a simple enough topic, yet when you really try to narrow it down it’s actually a lot more complicated than that. From an emotional standpoint of course, so it’s more about the “choosing” that’s complicated. The actual act of “The Choice” can be difficult but in reality the hard part is already done. Digging into the emotions, acknowledging the emotions, being aware of underlying things and not just being “reactionary”… yep, THAT’S the hard part.

So what is one to do? Today I find myself having these questions. I’ve had these questions before.. I find some answers.. I find more questions… today some of those things remain the same and some of those things I find something different…

One thing remains the same, and it’s the ME factor. I am the part that remains center to it all. Even when I feel far “off center”, it is still me. My own “good and bad” is defined my ME. My love, happiness, pain, suffering… is mine by my choosing. I’m learning to be ok with that. I’m also learning that when I’m NOT, then it is only ME that can dig around and find a new “definition”. Or a way to acknowledge what I’m going through and decide to FEEL it ALL THE WAY THROUGH!

No short cuts when we make a “choice”… if we do, then we miss the whole “lesson” or “learning moment” and it will just reappear in another place as a “new choice”….

I share this today as this year and month has been a challenge on many levels. Both for me personally and I know for many others. Not exactly “good” or “bad”, as I prefer to have a definition based on “opportunity”. Yet the “opportunities” this year have come with what feels like a “price”. And while that is true to me, I also realize it’s more about some of my own resistance and struggle to “DO the choices” while also acknowledging the need to keep moving forward toward NEW choices.

Although a bit cliche, it never gets old to me.. life is a dance, a journey, a cluster of experiences.. I “dance” and “go” where I want and where I choose. Our lives are built from experience to experience… it just gets hard sometimes to “see” because there are so many at once. (Thinking of another cliched phrase- but a bit opposite- “can’t see the trees, for the forest” instead of the “forest for the trees”)

Regardless, it’s OUR LIFE… Live it as well as you choose. While allowing the Grace to “go through it” even when it’s messy and hard and we desperately seek Peace, that deep down we already know is at the center of US.

May you find peace, blessings, and courage as we end this year and begin anew, with the spirit of embracing change and acceptance through the allowance of lifes path.

Much love
Shiela
