BELOVEd Friend and Fellow Traveler,

Just in case WE need a reminder of the POWER of reBIRTH that is at hand, the Universe is GIFTing US the POTENT medicine of an Eclipse Season just a few days into the new Gregorian year of 2019! Today, Saturday, January 5th (Rhythmic Moon Day 25, Kin 72 Yellow Resonant Human), is holding space for the opening of the Eclipse Season with the Capricorn New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipse. NOW is the time to REFINE your INTENTions for this new cycle. Within your process of REFINEment, take ACTion by clearing out clutter, cleaning your home/office, or tending to your garden/yard. Call upon Earthy Capricorn, who is the GUARDIAN of HOME and HEARTH, to SUPPORT you in CREATING SPACE for what is on its way to you.

An Eclipse is when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are in ALIGNment which creates PHENOMENAL RESET energy for US ALL to connect with.

We typically experience Eclipses in pairs, which is true at this time. The next Eclipse occurs at the Leo Full Moon/ Total Lunar Eclipse on January 20th (Resonant Moon Day 11, Kin 87 Blue Solar Hand). When this happens, it is fondly called an Eclipse portal or wormhole, meaning that the energies are supporting great TRANSFORMation for you/me/WE, Mother Earth, and the Universe. It is an opportunity to tune in to your multidimensionality and interconnectedness with ALL.

You may BE noticing that things are feeling stirred up within you and within aspects of your 'outer' experience. Believe it or not, this is a really good thing! It is exactly what your Authentic Self or Soul has in mind for you and your path of EVOLution. WE are all in the process of 'de-programming' the old disempowering ideas and belief systems which in turn creates space for what it is WE desire for ourSelves and our world from an EMPOWERed, heart-centered place. I AM the first to share that this practice takes commitment and discipline. It also requires a great amount of COURAGE, RESILIENCE, and a WILLINGness to hold the highest vision for what WE are 'dreaming' for our planet. Gratefully, WE have our Lion-hearted Leo ally uniting with the upcoming Full Moon to EMPOWER us to EMBRACE our FIERCE COMMITMENT to HOLD THE LIGHT. Even if appearances would say that things are not changing for 'the better', the key is to stay in trust of the process and avoid the lower self's tendency to jump into fear and resistance to what is.

When I was about 22, I participated in a rope's course in which I had to climb this VERY high tree, stand on this REALLY small platform, and then jump off and TRUST that the ropes would hold me and I would have a soft place to land. I stood up there for several moments with tears in my eyes, unsure if I could really do it. Now I realize it wasn't at all about the jumping. It was about TRUSTing. In order to jump, I got to TRUST mySelf and Spirit that everything was o.k. I was invited to TRUST that I wouldn't have been led to that experience if I wasn't meant to have it. So I jumped. And for a few moments, I flew... and it was AWEsome!

I AM feeling called to deem 2019 'The year of the Butterflies'. WE ALL have been in a process of metamorphosis over these last few years. WE are DISCOVERing that the struggles (the time in the cocoon) have been preparing US for the ASCENSION that is upon US. So, Dear One, remember that this time is a GIFT. A GIFT OF TRANSFORMATION. An invitation to fly!

Here are some tools to keep in mind for the journey:

* Keep the body moving with regular exercise. Our physical bodies are shifting with these energies. Nurture it with nutritional food, hydration, PATIENCE, and LOVE. It is normal to experience 'ascension symptoms' as the body RECEIVEs the upgrades of energy. Avoid the tendency to judge and criticize your body. Choose to PRACTICE RADICAL SELF-CARE!

*Create space for STILLness with meditation, prayer, ritual, ceremony, and focusing in on the breath. Call upon your team of ancestors, allies, guides, and angels to assist you with your ASCENSION journey.

*Allow yourSelf to explore creative expression through journaling, art, music, or movement. We ALL are creative BEings with an abunDANCE to share!

*Connect with Mother Earth. Spend time taking walks, swimming, or napping under a tree. The Earth's energies are shifting and when WE consciously connect with her, WE are able to stay grounded and feel how UNITEd WE truly are with her and all of creation. Pay attention to the animals, plants, flowers, and trees that you are feeling drawn to. They have powerful medicine to offer you!

*Nurture yourSelf with bodywork, supportive guidance, and/or energy medicine. Now is PRIME time to RECEIVE assistance in releasing what no longer serves. You DESERVE the LOVE and care you give to others.

ABOVE ALL ELSE, REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE NOT ALONE! WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER! Please reach out for SUPPORT in integrating these energies.
