Can you believe that we have made it through another year.. that we are already over two weeks in… I hope you are a little bit wiser, a little bit older, have only a few bumps and bruises and hopefully a bunch of great memories.
2016 is out and 2017 is in! What do you expect to experience?
So, as I sat down to write this message to you, I planned to share a bit about what some of my intentions are for 2017.. But… that didn’t happen. That will come another time.
Instead, I felt the incredible sadness and heaviness of the past year.. weighing on peoples hearts and minds. So, I am going to write about that instead. I want to address the loss that so many feel, on a variety of levels…. and acknowledge one of the things I know for sure.. This too shall pass! With Love – SDJ♥
I know that for many people, 2016 was rough.. in a lot of ways.
Loss… that’s the word that comes to mind. Many people experienced loss. At the beginning of 2016, two of my friends and long time clients passed away or graduated as Tim would say. So, 2016 started off with death in my world. It is also ending with death. As I began to write this blog, on the second to the last day of the year, I have over 10 close friends and clients that are standing vigil at the bedside while praying for a miracle, waiting for their loved ones imminent transition or picking out caskets and making funeral plans. In addition, a dear friend is on a plane to bury his mother who just passed hours ago, one of my team members aunts will pass away tomorrow ( I know this because I am editing at a later date, this one is not a psychic hit), and my uncle just buried his dad. The losses are big!
Collectively, we’ve had some major losses as well. It truly is remarkable how many musicians transitioned this year as well.. The spirit world has quite a variety of band-mates after 2016, most recently of course George Michael’s. Can you imagine the heavenly sound? Prince, David Bowie, Glenn Frye, and Merle Haggard just to name a few others. And the loss of mother/daughter Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds only one day apart.. speaks to the connection and soul mate energy they certainly shared. Yes, we had a lot of loss…. and that doesn’t cover the equally or even more painful and catastrophic losses of the unnamed but not unloved.. the large losses throughout the world via wars, earthquakes, violence, suicide, accidents.. and the list goes on and on and on.
If you were someone that experienced the death of a loved one or a major loss in your life, I send you Love and Light!
I know the depths the pain…
that grief and loss can take you to. I honor your pain, your sadness, your grief and your loss. My heart is with you. I hold the vision of healing, for your highest good and the highest good of all… in perfect divine timing!
And, I also know that this too shall pass.
As hard as that can be to believe, I find it to be true, in all areas of life. Both the great experiences and the really challenging experiences pass. It’s the one thing we can be sure of.
I also know that….
When one chapter is complete, the next waits to be written.
That endings create new beginnings.
That joy awaits those that grieve.
That 2016 has closed and 2017 is open… for whatever it is you chose to focus on and create.
That death here, in the physical world.. is birth in the Spirit world.
That birth here in the physical world… is death in the Spirit world…
Which truly means….
We never die..
Love never ends…
Life, in the sense of energy.. is eternal…
We are Infinite sources of energy.. simply changing form.
We are constantly closing one door, opening another, closing that one and opening another….
It never ends!
So, now that 2017 is here we have an opportunity, not to forget our losses, but to embrace the gifts that our loved ones are still offering us. They are still here, to teach us. To learn a new way of living, a new way of loving. I’m not saying that it’s easy, in fact.. it isn’t easy for most people. But, it is necessary… for a variety of reasons. Most importantly.. to truly live full out – which is what our loved ones want for us…. and from us. They want us to TRULY LIVE!
So today my friend.. with all of the loss.. and all of the gains.. how will you choose to create the life ahead of you? It truly is your choice. Just remember, your loved ones are with you.. ALWAYS and in ALL WAYS!!!!!! They don’t die, they just change form. One of the best things we can do, for all concerned, is LIVE!!!!!!
I’ll share my intentions and creations for 2017 down the road a bit, but today, I’d love to hear from you. What are you going to create? What do you want in your life? What are you doing to find peace, and hope and joy? Please comment below and share with me:)
I love you..and I honor your journey. Wherever you find yourself, please know.. YOU ARE NEVER ALONE!
All my love – SDJ♥
