As the year draws to a close, like many others, I find myself reviewing the year and looking forward to the new one about to open itself unto us..welcoming, daring us to achieve our wildest dreams! And this year, I am intentional in positioning myself to take on that challenge. What will it take, I ask myself, to live in abundance and achieve my wildest dreams? And the inspiration comes softly to me in the words of Thich Nhat Hanh, In deep faith, light up the incense of your heart. To do so, I realise, means acknowledging and accepting the wondrous abundance of the Universe, drinking from the gourd of potential which I have been gifted and giving back to the Universe in multi-faceted ways that reflect the talents, the energy, the knowledge that have shaped me into who I am today.
As the light dawns on 2020, I seek to engage in a radical openness to the reality of the world in which I live. To peer deeply into the trials and the triumphs; the beauty and the ugliness and discern the lessons to be learned. That incense that lights my heart gives me direction-intuitively -on what matters most; what I should honor and what I should let go. I endeavour to listen intently to the exultant beating of my heart that awakens me to the wonders of the world as well as to the gut feeling that tells me something is amiss and it is time to walk away. It is this incense of the heart that is my greatest gift of empowerment and I want to train myself to listen intently and honor this intuitive wisdom and allow it it to enshroud and dust its power all over me.
As this source empowers me, I want to become an example to others and gather from their wisdom as well. How wonderful it will be to join hands, tapping into our gifts, gaining strength from each other to inspire, to heal, and to transform the world. The New Year with the promise of a new itinerary, both linear and intuitive, imaginative or real, opens a portal to travel to enjoy the charm and the beauty of diverse regions, to write and elevate my muse, to accept the support others provide and show gratitude through the way I dress, wear my hair, and show up in public. 2020 offers me the canvas to become the living story of my most fundamental beliefs.
