Where I live, the new year brought a blanket of fresh snow — a fitting metaphor for a clean slate, a new beginning. January 1st offered the sweet scene of neighborhood kids sledding down the toboggan hill in the park. Brightly colored sleds, hats and snowsuits sailing downhill accompanied by joyful sounds and bounding dogs triggered a nostalgic return to innocence that lifted my soul.
At home, out my back door, I noticed that the dish I fill with food for the local wildlife (as wild as it gets in the city) was piled high with snow. Then, within minutes, I received email from a friend on a research mission, trying to connect with an informed source in Colorado, from whom she had yet to receive a response. “He may just have snow in his dish,” she said, refering to the satellite dish he uses for internet connection.
Hard to miss “snow in the dish” coming up twice in such short order. I pondered how much snow many of us likely have in our receiver, perceiver and/or sender mechanisms: frozen thought forms, emotions, and even outdated ideas of who we are in the scheme of things, keeping us frozen in our tracks when we dearly wish or need to move forward.
We’ve crossed a threshold on the calendar; what better time to pour a catalytic stream of liquid Light into frozen old consciousness, and cross a pivotal threshold in life? It’s never too late to recreate. The past is gone, and what’s ours to do now is to create luminous thoughtforms of how we want our lives to be, and then step into those thoughtforms and feel how it will feel to actually live that scenario. Flesh it out as much as possible (no scrimping on the crucial emotional component), then release it to set up an energetic that the “universe will conspire” to fulfill by way of inspiration for your next step, or “chance encounters” with helpful people, and the like. Caveat: any conflicting thoughts that may subsequently arise need to be canceled and replaced with the desire again, asap, or they’ll just reduce the established line of magnetic attraction to static. Not helpful.
This is strategic synchronicity skill-building 101.
Such ideas are likely well known to the readership of this blog, but some might be served by a reminder as I was, while pondering this snowy vignette. (Besides, it’s been quiet around here lately!) A microwave dish full of snow blocks useful communications, and a plate full of snow leaves no room for fresh sustenance. Could be time to do some dishes.
Wishing you a blessed, delightful, abundant new year ~
