What would you do if you were sitting in a boat with four other people and the sailing got rough? The waves were closing in on the boat, threatening to overturn it. You looked at the water, and knew that the waves would bat you around and even possibly make you a little nauseous. You had a knowing, a clarity that you would be ok and you trusted this knowing. You stayed calm. You believed.
This year may be like your boat adventure, rough, very rough at times. Yet, you find inner strength to make your world safe and strong. You look around and observe that others have the similar thoughts and feelings. People extend themselves to others. People stand up and let their voices be heard through actions of all kinds.

Back to basics. Clean out your closets. What you haven’t used in the last twelve months may be cluttering your physical and, emotional and mental space. Free yourself up.

Many big changes happen this year. Do not be shocked at what surprises you. A New President? Could very well be. Big tidal wave represents huge currents for more honesty and transparency in government. New candidates must address needs and interests of constituents.
Protests are here to stay, at least for a long while. Momentum and camaraderie are built here.

In fact, your creative talents are calling you to give birth. Connect with that part of YOU!! It will create great energy and contribute to the peace on earth that so wants to be born and take over.
