Updated: Jan 16
Don't Just Don't just learn, experience. Don't just read, absorb. Don't just change, transform. Don't just relate, advocate. Don't just promise, prove. Don't just criticize, encourage. Don't just think, ponder. Don't just take, give. Don't just see, feel. Don’t just dream, do. Don't just hear, listen. Don't just talk, act. Don't just tell, show. Don't just exist, live.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart 2021 represent graduation / completion of a course, a marriage, the birth of a child (or an idea) or achieving a long-held dream or aspiration, accomplishing your goal or purpose. Everything will come together, and you will be in the right place, doing the right thing, achieving what you have envisioned. You will feel whole and complete. As 2020 comes to an end, reflect on your journey, honour your achievements / learnings and tune into your spiritual lessons.... Celebrate your successes / failures (a stepping stone to success) and bask in the joy of your lessons & journey. All the triumphs and tribulations along your path have made you into the strong, wise, more experienced person you are now. Express gratitude for what you have created and harvested. Finally, make sure you don’t rush into the next big project; celebrating your journey will set you up for success when you are ready for your next challenge. If you have not quite reached a point of completion, then you are very close! You may still need an added level of understanding to graduate to a higher level and enjoy real success. Look back at your past experiences and acknowledge how far you have come and what you learned along the way. It may surprise you to look back at your progress and see how much you achieved. This reflection may also be what you need to bring your project to its final stages. If loose ends still remain, bring them to completion. In doing so, you will clear the space for new beginnings and opportunities to emerge. Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change. Stephen Hawking 2021 can mean world travel, particularly on a large scale. You may be lucky enough to embark on a long overseas trip - working, studying or living overseas for an extended period. This year reinforces Universal understanding and global awareness, and you will find a new appreciation for people and cultures from across the world. 2021 - symbolizes learning / education, communication, networking, wit / humour, change, travel (both internal & external), personal freedom, the unconventional, individualism, non-attachment, change, life lessons learned through experience, variety, adaptability and versatility, resourcefulness, motivation, progress, activity, experience, travel and adventure, sympathy and understanding, sociability and companionability, release and surrender, influence, sensuality, promotion, natural flair, being vivacious, courage and being courageous, health and healing, idealism, telepathy, pleasure-seeking and pleasure loving, vitality, vision and the visionary, expansion, opportunity, story-telling, mercy, kindness, invention, magnetism, competitiveness, imagination, curiosity, cleverness and intelligence, and making positive life choices and decisions. Look upon these changes with an optimistic and positive attitude as they are destined to bring you many long-term benefits. Remember to be grateful for the auspicious opportunities ahead of you. Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” ― Lao Tzu 2021 brings the energy of positive and significant change. Yet, it is not the energy of ordinary change. Rather it signifies a divine metamorphosis of past experiences merging together to create something new and different. Carrying the energy of versatility, adaptability, non-attachment, variety, and release/surrender the angel number 5 reminds us to learn and grow from our past experiences, but also be willing to let them go so we are not ruled by them. Like the caterpillar who must summon the courage to venture into vast and unknown change, 2021 represents the courageousness it takes for us to step into change. Along with the resourcefulness and motivation to take on the activity and the adventure of making these changes a reality. No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit. - Hellen Keller 2021 brings a powerful message reminding you to maintain a positive attitude in regards to a current situation or issue and be optimistic about the outcome as this will manifest your desired result/. We are given plenty of obstacles along our paths, so do not allow yourself to become one of them. Release your fears and apprehensions, stay on a positive path and use your natural skills, talents and abilities for the benefit of yourself and others. Show initiative and tenacity and step out of your comfort zone as it is time to take new directions and/or begin new projects and ventures that your soul has been urging you towards. Take on challenges and changes with confidence and courage, and trust that your angels are by your side and are guiding your every step. Remain calm, balanced and happy and you will find that all will work out for your highest good.
Seek patience and passion in equal amounts. Patience alone will not build the temple. Passion alone will destroy its walls. - Maya Angelou My suggestion : ✅Work on healing and energizing your Throat chakra (5th chakra) ✅Pray, talk to nature, sing like nobody is listening, chant mantras, meditate and commune with the divine. Say “No” if something does not resonate with you. Do not be afraid to vocalize what you want, what you believe in, or who you are. ✅Yoga Poses for the Throat Chakra: Bow Pose, Sitting Forward Bend, Lion Pose and Pranayam ✅Crystals to Balance the Throat Chakra: Blue Topaz, Turquoise, Chrysocolla, Aquamarine, Green Aventurine, Blue Apatite, Blue Lace Agate, Angelite, Emerald & Larimar ✅Aromatherapy for the Throat Chakra: Lavender, Chamomile, Rosemary ✅Start Journaling : Expressing yourself on paper is one of the most cathartic things you can do to release your inner truth. As such, journaling is one of the best ways to invite spontaneous insight, understanding and growth into your life because you can dig deep when it’s just you and your pen and heal deeply. ✅Practice automatic / intuitive writing ✅Keep your communication device (s) in proper order - adorn them with pretty covers / sleeves, accessorize them with your favourite colours and crystals. Mend / repair your broken phone, watches, computers and all your electronic & communication devices ✅Keep the yantra for Budh / Mercury at your altar and chant the mantra Om Braam Breem Braum Sah: Budhay Namah: 21 times daily ✅Activate the 5 universal elements with element activation meditation ✅Bring in indoor plants to heal your life and raise your vibration ✅Use a green ink / pen for writing ✅Keep a green aventurine or jade in your wallet ✅Stay in the present...not in the past or future. Practice mindfulness From a psychological perspective of the Throat chakra, we begin to face our truth and see beyond maya (illusion), we vocalize our authentic self and are no longer lying to ourselves. We remain clear and direct in speaking our personal truth when we say “I am not happy” or “This is who I am!” When we activate the Throat Chakra, we drop the facade of social conditioning and we awaken to our true human potential. Are you ready to speak out for what you truly believe? And I leave you with this beautiful quote by Maya Angelou... "Whatever you want to do, if you want to be great at it, you have to love it and be able to make sacrifices for it" May 2021 bless you abundantly and shower you with love, laughter, peace, prosperity and everlasting joy ... Stay blessed..now and always 🙏🌷 Payal Love and Peace to You,
