2020 is a year to get real and raw folks for we don't have time to beat around the bush or mince our words with being overly nice and mannerly to not cause upset or disruption. Life is here and it is in disruption regardless. Now the bigger and more important question; is how will we choose to best navigate all those experiences coming to our door so too speak on a personal, local, national and global level if not in person then via technology ?
It seems so futuristic as I recall the mention of 2020 from the year 2000. Yet here it is for each of us to embrace ... ready or not so we may as well open up our arms and say YESsssss ! ! !
This blog was written to assist and support the reader gain a deeper clarity and greater courage stepping into 2020 and the years ahead.
I am sure you will agree that it does not take a rocket scientist to note that the next decade will be an incredible and evolutionary time for us all. You / we can feel it... even if you don’t watch or read the regular mainstream news or an alternative news source.
On one earthly hand 🌍 👋 there is greater technological advances being introduced and on the horizon into our societies. On the other earthly hand 🌎 is the current and rising crisis that can not be ignored or shoved back under the preverbal carpet on the topic of what is occurring in our humanities rising health and well-being challenges. It is shocking, sad, disheartening, un-grounding and overwhelming for many across the globe 🌍...just the increase in cancers and anxieties people are dealing with on a normal day directly or indirectly.
Much creative thinking 🤔 and a solution focused, integral priority is required to rebalance our societal systems into one that truly is supportive and affirmative for empowering personal and collective health, harmony and well being. The years ahead will require each of our courage, fearless love 💓 and clarity that come from connecting with our deeper core values and living as examples of those virtues the best one can with integrity and authenticity.
Core values influence our core choices that we make daily. They influence the little things that eventuate into creating the bigger things in life; for or example creating cleaner oceans and electing politicians that actually have the ability to really listen 👂 to those they represent and communicate with authenticity and compassion for their fellow human family and communities regardless of race, colour, religion or financial status.
This for the most part is a far cry from the current situation of politicians spending long days and copious amounts of rate payers money in debate about rules and regulations that don't really hold the highest and best good of the greater humanity and a sustainable planet. This is a reflection of a very mislead, wasteful and disharmonious system among many that somehow we all have been upholding due to going along with things, not really knowing the inner power we hold and a 'Let’s not rock' the boat mentality. Well the boat is rocking and climate change and increased levels of sickness is just a couple of examples that we cannot turn away from and pretend is not happening.
How many Trumps do we need to create a head spin and get the message through to awakens our inner fire that ‘ this is not ok ‘ ! A rude awakening Mr Trump has been and yet a tremendous antidote to our collective apathy and expectations of someone or something outside of the self to fix things and make things right. Trump is a great example of just how wayward things can go when we relinquish our self empowered responsibly.
A big 👍 for Jacinda Our N.Z. Prime Minister. A wonderful example in my humble opinion of a Politician whom has not sold out her humanity for the game and systems of politics. A planetary example of staying strong and resilient as a compassionate, common sense, practical, caring and authentic Politician and human being.
To be honest I have had little interest in Politics finding it incredibly mundane and a very mental process for the most part. In previous times I found not much true authentic heart in it and far too much of personal agendas and gains getting mixed up in it. However this last year I have had the great honour of meeting in person a couple of wonderful Politicians partial frustrated themselves by the inability to create the changes they thought they could and finding not great support as an authentic voice among the pigeons. It was able to pass onto to these people the news of a wonderful women called Marianne Williams whom is currently running for the next elections in USA 🇺🇸. If you have not heard of her or heard her speak please google her and hear her messages.
In 2020 Personal responsibility is a must to create the change we want to see and experience in our outer world. We cannot wait for the Political systems to do it for us or any other systems for that matter. We must get really clear on what our own deeper and most valued truth and virtues are. What is it we need to become ourself to walk the walk and not just talk the talk or blame others for not walking their talk ? How do we become more integral by our thoughts, words and actions? These after all are what relay our most treasures values, beliefs and communicate impressions to others and the children observing us ? A great way if you have children is to ask what values would you most want your children to remember you mostly for ?
It all begins within by cultivating daily well-being practices that support becoming mindfully aware of ones thoughts, speech and actions and how these habits and intentions / attention actually connect outwards to influence the experiences of life a person has.
“ what you give out you get back “
The greatest liberation is in taking full responsibility for your life experiences even if you don’t like what you are currently seeing. If you don’t then the tendency is to look outwards for someone or something to blame and you lock yourself into thinking and believing you are a victim and powerless. Or you blame yourself deep down for never being good enough and turn that anger and resentment inwards which will definitely cause a dis-ease response in the body.
The biggest thing that must transform in the next decade is our humanities deep down self esteem issues. We must finally awaken to the fact that we are inherently worthy to know we are powerful beyond measure and that Jesus was not a liar when quoted as stating
“ everything I can do, you will do and more “.
And who wants to call Jesus a liar ... right 😅😉 ! Jesus ( Yeshua ) wanted us to come into the awareness and acceptance that we are each godliness also within. Like him we are sons and daughters of god. We are not separate from the light of Christ that shone through his earthly body over 2000+ years ago. This light comes through each ones sacred heart 💓 space when one is ready to heal, harmonise and reconcile from past karmic patterns, traumas, shame, distortions of truth, control issues and unresolved emotions.
The more one releases and heals the past the more the Christed light can move freely through unobstructed by what has been the norm for 1000’s of years. The norm of excessive human fear, uncertainty, un-forgiveness, distrust, shame and self-doubt issues. Hence feeling and believing one is deeply unworthy and undeserving to accept such a magnificent radiant blessings to know that I AM GOD also.
Not just as a mental concept to try to attain and grasp at but as an experience of ‘truth’ beyond the words and limited interpretations by mans ( or womens ) ego living its separated identity so mightily upon the earth.
So with all that profound and straight talking ‘soul food ‘ for your thoughts, heart, body, emotions and soul I invite you to join me to take a few deep breaths and get a piece of paper or journal 📔 to do a yearly clean out and clarify your intentions for the year of 2020.
This is one of the wellness tools I share on our Vibrant Living Wellness Retreats. It is a simply and very powerful writing ✍🏻 tool to help organise and gain clarity of your deeper values and preferred focus moving into your future NOW.
“ the only true moment of creation is the present moment “
It is truly a practical tool that I suggest you do once monthly through out 2020 or as you transition the seasons.

When you or anyone goes into fear or worry the 1st thing that’s happens is you shorten or hold your breath known as 'shallow breathing' and your heart closes. This then switches the 'primal survival brain' on that literally goes into the protecting mode to potentially save your life from what it perceives must be a impending danger of some sort know as the ’fight or flight or freeze ’ mode response of the bodies nervous system. Hence this is why taking the good deep and easy rhythmic breath is step one before any other wellness practice.
God is waiting for you to make the 1st step; to make your choice and the preference you prefer. Once you make your committed choice with two feet in then god or the universal isness can get right in behind you supporting you all the way forward on your chosen life path decision until you make a new choice of direction. What we don’t always understand in our human nature is that you can choose again and again what ever you decide even 10 seconds later . It is the indecision that creates the deep struggles one feel inside. This non commitment in any one direction is often because one is unwilling to make a choice for fear of getting it wrong and not wanting to take responsibility if one does.
In simply term one does not trust themselves or life. it is a challenging thing for our human egos to swallow that there really is never a wrong decision made no matter the outcome for everything is a learning and growing experience. Learning what one does not prefer to experience offers lots of clarity and determination into what one does prefer.
