2020, The Year of Change...
2020... I felt last year that 2020 would be better... that there would be changes... and good changes... Well... the way I see it, I still feel that way... Yes, the "world has changed" from what we knew of it since the beginning of this year... What I am most happy about more than anything is how due to global lockdowns, our beauty-full Earth has had a chance to breathe a big sigh of relief. There are signs of nature flourishing & animals appearing more visibly than before. (I LOVE IT!!)
Since the beginning of this year, I have felt a personal change within me, as well... I've been feeling a need to break away from a community I had been part of for more than a couple of years... It was a community that I used to enjoy being part of... however, being that we are all humans each with our own lives to live (e.g. making a living in order to support our own lifestyles...), I was feeling some "disconnect" and less "alignment" by being part of the community... like there was an emphasis on "how to get ourselves out there and how to grow our businesses"... so it felt more like $$$ driven... more than "how can we serve others?"...
For several years now, the "Big Picture" I see is, I want to do my part to help raise the Consciousness of Humanity... whether that is through connecting humans to their animals by doing animal communication readings or energy healing for humans &/or animals or through life guidance to help people along their paths in life or a combination of all of the above. Basically, I lived most of my life until about 8 1/2 years ago, not having any sort of guidance on living my best life possible. I learned all that I know now by researching on my own. Researching about the Universal Laws... I never knew there was such a thing prior to 2011. I have never been religious nor will I ever be. However, I learned about spirituality and metaphysics which literally changed my life once I began to apply their principles. After I started learning these "secrets" to life, I wished there was someone way back when I was younger who taught me these things. Schools definitely did not. My life would have been so much easier... :)
These past few months have helped me get more clear on my life and what I truly desire. And just this morning, I did 3 different meditations which I did not expect much from, yet they had a profound effect on me. To the point where I felt a shift in my own consciousness. Right after the third meditation, I pulled my daily oracle & tarot cards and it was my most spot-on reading which blew my mind. I felt even more sure my decision to break away from the pack (community) was the right decision. It always feels good and safer to be part of a group. However, I feel the need to do things on my own, in my own ways whether I stumble or succeed. It's great to have a teacher who has taught well, but also, there are times when it's for one's highest good to leave that teacher and see if there is someone else who can provide more as one continues to grow. Just because a teacher has been one's teacher doesn't mean that teacher will continue to be able to teach what the student needs in order to continue to grow. It's good and healthy to seek other humans to learn from. (This reminds me of a quote about "Following one religion is like reading the same book over and over again"... I can't recall the person who said this, though..). This is just my own opinion. I'm feeling like I would like to learn from someone who is more in alignment with where I am now spiritually.
Maybe I am a dreamer, but I would love to live in a peaceful, harmonious world where all humans are kind to all living beings, including everything in nature, other people's properties, etc.. I would love to be the catalyst for humans who cross my path to want to change to improve their lives, as well as for their animals, families, communities, and also inspire humans to want to make this a better world. Just one little stone cast in a body of water ripples out far and wide. Imagine many lil stones cast...
May has just begun... when they will lift the travel bans to Japan is still unknown... I was supposed to go there last month, a trip I had excitedly planned from the fall of 2019 which ended in a huge disappointment. (But, again, I am very happy for our planet~ ✨💜🌍💜✨ ). My parents moved there last summer from the U.S. where they lived & worked for more than 50+ years... and I have a college bestie in Japan who is one of those genuinely kind-hearted souls with a great sense of humor who brings joy to me like any animal would (yes! this is the highest compliment I could ever give a human being! 😆...), so this global lockdown is making me feel like a bull in a pen at a rodeo or a bat in hell? 😅... as soon as the gates are open, I am 🚀 over to Japan. A truly magical country where I feel like I'm in a Studio Ghibli anime~✨🥰✨
Here is a quote that always inspires me when I read it:
“When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That's a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it… Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again.”
