And yet again we have found ourselves in the darkest part of the year, in the bleakness of January, craving for sun and its soothing rays on our skin. Craving warmth and a drier season, but please don‘t despair, as there is promise of returning light already in the air. We have just said our goodbyes to 2021 – another year of deep collective shift and initiation. It has been tough, it has been wild and scary, but shifts and changes usually are. I hope with all my heart that in the continuous midst of chaos and unknown, we are all able to open ourselves to receive many gifts life/universe has for us, that we found a moment to reflect on the year gone by and on the year that is opening in front of us many possibilities. Those gifts sprout from simple things; it can be a smile of a passer-by, a beautiful scene we witness on the way to work, a beautiful time with family or friends. Kindness brings kindness, love gives birth to more love – let’s open ourselves up to giving and receiving in this New Year. We’ve just witnessed the enormous beauty of the Wolf Full Moon – the miracle of the light piercing the darkness of this season and shining a torch of hope and love into the coldness of the void. This beautiful picture of the Wolf Moon over Cambridge taken by my friend Lois shows so gorgeously this piercing hope, this promise, this miracle. We are still surrounded by fear and doubt – fuelled by media and politicians – but deep down, beneath all this there is a hidden treasure. It’s at the tip of our fingers. It’s the light in the darkness, birthed from the depths of our personal void. Losing ourselves within will bring us closer to our true selves. I am giving myself fully to the Higher Forces to lead me into this place, those worlds hidden, at the threshold between what was and what still can be. In this void I will learn my own unmaking, I will learn to unmask myself. I must find the strength within to love what I discover – the dark or the light, it will be a treasure to find. I am ready to step into the fog, into my mystery, the unknown – into the void. I am ready to create myself and this year anew. It’s a process of unveiling and looking at your naked truth – it’s scary, it’s raw, but it’s also so very necessary. I’ve come through 12 Sacred Nights with more questions than answers – but this is the true beauty and the power will be found in the discovery process. Discovery of who I am to be, of who I am. This New Year 2022 feels good. I have many plans for Prime Therapy – Cacao Ceremonies, Shamanic work, Breathwork, Reiki, Zero Balancing, Yoni Wise groups. And I invite you all to celebrate this year with me.
Last year I’ve shared with you the Ancestral Teachings that I would follow. I revisited them and changed them slightly, as we are all changing continuously. I would like to share them with you again, so we can all make this year better. To the conscious New Year!
