Recently I met with my spiritual mentor and friend Cedric Redfeather, the last Mandan Turtle Priest who is a ceremonial guide, author, teacher and artist. We talked about the current spiritual energy and what the New Year shall bring. “The light will continue to be brighter, and the dark will continue to grow darker. The separation will become even wider between these two,” he stated.
2018 will be driven by people’s passions and strong, STRONG emotions, and their paths will deepen in this way. For all the conflict and unrest in 2017, 2018 will see even more of this due to this deepening. Those who are involved in greed, corruption, manipulation and so forth will most likely delve deeper into this path, whereas those who are seeking to uplift themselves, love more, grow more, learn more and set out on a healing path will do so with great energy behind them.
This is not to say we don’t have a choice, for we always do; rather than focusing on others’ choices, which will be difficult NOT to do in 2018, it is vital to make sure we are focused upon our own choices this year. This will determine our rate of change, and there is MAJOR change on ALL levels in store for 2018.
The remarkable thing about these changes is that many will feel out of the blue, but truly they have been set up for such a long time, and this set up has simply been unknown and unseen to it’s viewers. Many will not understand where these changes came from, except to the person and institutions making these changes, who have been writing their backstory for a very long time.
On a personal level, with all the change and seeming upheaval around us, our journeys will be focused on clarity: clarity of who we are, and how we wish to reflect into the world, bringing clarity of actions steps to take. In fact, the actions of others are serving us, helping us clarify how we feel about ourselves and guiding us towards knowing ourselves better. By seeing what we feel is right and not right, we know ourselves better, and will discover how we wish to experience ourselves in a truer way.
We will have the chance to clarify every aspect of who we are and what we desire, deepening our sense of self and connecting us further to our spiritual mind. All the chaos is here to serve us, weirdly enough. Are we going to choose the confusion and distraction that comes with all the misinformation and surface conflict, or are we going to go beyond that, realizing that it is helping us tune into what our hearts treasure and what we feel is important to our essence of being?
Allow the chaos to serve you in a way where you deepen your relationship with yourself, and act in a way that reflects your beliefs about yourself. Do not act ONLY to remedy the actions of others. In fact, on a spiritual level, when we react to contradict what others are doing, the best result we can get is to neutralize the actions of others. While this may temporarily take away the chaos, it does not create anything new that can take root and be everlasting in love. Neutralizing is fine, and sometimes necessary to clear a field, but we must also focus on planting something in that field. Therefore, if you must respond to neutralize your space, do not let it be the only thing you focus upon. Our actions cannot simply be in response to others; they must also be a reflection of how we see and feel about ourselves, which deep down is to thrive, not just survive.
If 2017 was a buildup of energy, 2018 is about letting that energetic build-up push us forward. How many of us feel like a bubble ready to burst, after all? For those of us on the path of brightening our journey, our hearts will not be denied. Whether we crave change, question our current stage of life, or experience the change of suddenly becoming content, all the energy is serving us to delve deeper into ourselves and, ultimately, experience ourselves as a high vibration.
Our vibration, after all, is not a ‘thing’, but is a measure of how much we are in touch with our Divine Self. The more in touch we are, the more energy we have, and the more energy we have, the easier we are able to create with pure intention. So, all the talk of a ‘high vibration’ is merely a way to describe how open our inner doors are to…ourselves, basically! The higher vibration,( i.e, the more open the door is), the better we feel, because that doorway to the Divine Self is pure, perfect love energy. Allow 2018 to serve you in this way: by intending to have the most open door and clearest connection to your Divine Self, the energy of perfect love.
Blessings and love to us all!
