My parents have had a wonderful reawakening of sorts… they laugh!
I love this, it’s such a beautiful sound
The sight of their joy fills my heart.

Today is the last day of an old year moving into a new one… 2011 leaves us and 2012 begins.

I’ve been fascinated by the doomsayers looking at the Mayan calendar and it makes me wonder if they have forgotten the significance of a circle? They are never ending, no beginning and no end.

I used to be afraid when I heard people speak of the end of the world, when they tied it to an ancient calendar, that really gave me the heebie geebies! The more I thought about it, the more I realized they didn’t allow the significance of the shape of the Mayan calendar, as all aspects have meaning.

2012 is a new beginning. But not just any new beginning, this is a year like no other, a very powerful time in our lives, full of trials, tribulations and changes… great changes. The choices and decisions we make in this year will not only affect our lives but also the lives of everyone on the planet.

This year is about creating the world we wish to live in and asking ourselves those deep, heartfelt questions… Is this how I want my life to be? Do I want to live in fear and anger, for my children and grandchilden to live that way too? Or do I want to create a world of love, compassion and empathy for myself and others?

Think about it, we do have the ability to make change and to affect change, no matter how small or insignificant we think our contribution is. After all, it only takes a snowflake to begin an avalanche!

This year, I choose to look into the deeper levels of my choices. Instead of choosing willy-nilly based on the fear others want me to feel, I will look deeper and peel away the layers of what really lies underneath, then choose. That is the beauty of freedom, it allows us to make choices based on knowledge and understanding. And with knowledge, comes power.

So, if someone is trying to tell you a fear story, reject the fear and look deeper into what is causing the fear, that is where the light shines brightest. Feeling fear and walking through it anyway is what allows us all to make wise choices as we go into this new beginning of the Mayan calendar.

May you have a very beautiful, creative and light filled year!
