So, it seems we made it through the Mayan prophesy, and we are moving towards year that is filled with possibility. This past year has not been easy for many. 2012 was an energy that really shook many of us up, and for better or worse we are here. We are entering a time where possibility is unlimited, but we have to begin focusing on what is important–what is it that you truly want from the experience and what are you willing to create?
As we move into this new year it is important to not set resolutions but to set intentions.
I did feel the rocking that this year gave. Things came into fruition that I never thought would be possible, and things also have started to fall away. The ending of this year for me was filled with accomplishment and alignment. New beginnings are a daily thing, and each day brings new breath.
I have a lot that I want to do this coming year, and finishing up my writing projects is going to be a big priority. I am also evolving not only my client practice, but my personal practice. Stagnation is not something that needs to be embraced this year, and holding oneself back from a fully embodied spiritual practice is not something we are going to be allowed to do.
This is the year of the embodied warrior. The spirit of movement, flow, transition and owning our many parts. The shadow elements will still be there, but it is important to recognize that they are there to help nudge us along on our journey to self discovery. Breaking free of expectations and letting your life unfold as you want it to.
What are you holding yourself back from completing, accomplishing, or doing? Where is your resistance, invite to the table… work through it.
My commitment to this year is going to be to get his blog up and active in a new way. I want to take my personal writing to new heights. I was able to finish a manuscript for the Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) challenge and now have to edit and organize it. I am also working on a new book on Yogic Witchcraft, and have a new blog www.yogawitch.com and a wonderful radio show on blogtalk that is really picking up steam (www.blogtalkradio.com/michaelbrazell).
I am also taking my personal practice to a new level and am claiming my many parts. I am a student of BlackHeart Feri and recently had the opportunity to ground new energy at the Between the Worlds conference. I am excited to begin this new path of study, and it has already had a profound effect on my life.
Yoga is going to be taking a forefront in my journey this year. I am deepening my personal practice but am also going to be offering new classes, workshops, and events geared towards helping others tap into their unlimited potential through yoga, ecstatic practice, and magick. Stay tuned!
My partner David and I have done a lot of joint projects this past year, and I am thankful that I have had such a wonderful partner standing beside me through the ups and downs of the spiritual journey. Living a spiritual life is not often an easy one, but having someone who you can share this life with is an absolute gift. He has inspired me to finish my book this coming year and submit it to publishing. He has also inspired me through his tireless work with community to deepen my roots here in the area. I am working on creating and re-launching several of my meetups so that we can create the sacred space needed for touching the sphere of possibility in 2013.
There are lots of things that I neglected in 2012, and some things that I did not complete, that I will take into 2013 with renewed energy.
I thank all of my teachers, my friends, my clients, my students, my colleagues, spirit, and I thank the breath for keeping me moving–even when it seemed like giving up would have been an easier option.
Be ready to see new stuff!
What is in your sphere of possibility this coming year? What are you leaving behind in 2012, what are you carrying forward? What are you most grateful for?
“Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.”- Golda Meir
You are Loved. You are Beautiful. You are Divine!
