2020, the Year of Evolutionary Growth

Welcome to 2020, a new year; a new decade. We are entering a hugely transformational time – a year of evolutionary growth; globally and personally. 2020 starts a decade of significant world changes, big choices and deep healing. 2019 brought an old cycle to an end and 2020 starts a whole new cycle. How can you enter this year meaningfully and rise to its demands for stepping up in responsibility, maturity and mastery? To assist you with clarity and vision, here are 3 key questions to ask yourself in January 2020:

1. What are you letting go of?

Right from the start of the year, as you become motivated to open up to something new, you’ll be nudged to let go of the old – of something you’ve outgrown or something that’s lost it’s relevance or some change you want to make now. You’ll know, because you’ll feel ready to let it go as something new is coming up. How do you want to change consciously? What habits and patterns do you want to release? As you let go, you create the essential space for a whole new energy and focus to enter your life. Feel it intuitively, honour it and then, set the intention to let it go. The intention is the catalyst that sets you free and opens you up to the new. How do you want to grow consciously? How can you release fear, especially fear of change, and open up to love, connection and expansion?

2. What are you opening up to?

What does your heart want? Feel it within. What do you love doing? What is your soul directive? Why are you here now? What is your purpose? 2020 demands of us to really be our true authentic selves. Often we hold back and show a side to the world that we feel comfortable with, fearing what others may be thinking if we reveal it all. Now is the time to finally release those fears and doubts, let your true self come to the fore, be who you are and do what you feel called to do in the world. 

As you open your heart, everyone around you is uplifted by the light you emanate.

Streamline your focus by taking Question 2 into the areas of your life relevant to the themes we face in 2020:

Health and healing – emotional healing, ancestral healing, relational healing and healing of the planet.

Career and business – step up in your career; your business as an authority in your own right. Set big goals for the next decade. Do this in alignment with your soul directive; your purpose. Own your power and express it responsibly for the greater good.

Growth and spirituality – release doubts and fears, step up in responsibility, maturity and mastery. Let love be your motivation.

Finance – target your resources in alignment with your focused priorities. 

3. What are you committing to?

What is your long term commitment? What does this decade hold for you? Whilst there may be many big changes on a global scale, ask yourself: “How am I choosing to create and shape my world?”. This will help you to prioritise and focus your resources in alignment with your key commitments. It will also help you to say no to seemingly pressing issues others may bring across your path, knowing you only have so much time, energy and resources. You may have had a vision; a dream for a while, this year holds the energy to pull that vision through into form; into practical manifestation. 

Mastery is doing the inner work. The outer world will respond.

It’s the Season of Heart

Not everyone is a fan of Christmas, it can be a challenging time for many. Even if this is your favourite time of the year, it can get busy and demanding on your resources – money, energy and health alike. So often the question arises: why do we do all this in December and for what purpose?

Mastering Heart-based Consciousness 

Heart-based consciousness, is the new era consciousness – an evolutionary shift we are collectively making right now. Coming home to the heart, activates feelings of love and compassion in an unconditional way. The heart-mind is far more powerful than the brain as it receives information first and then passes it to the brain.

Living in the heart and making true decisions with your heart-mind from a basis of love and intuitive guidance, are key mastery practices. In the heart, you begin to work more with your feelings and intuition to access your truth.

Heart Coherence 

Heart-coherence is a state achieved when you shift your focus into the heart and activate heart-based feelings such as love, caring and appreciation. According to research done by the HeartMath Institute, heart coherence reduces stress and restores health. “Coherence is the state when the heart, mind and emotions are in energetic alignment and cooperation,” HeartMath Institute Research Director Dr. Rollin McCraty says. “It is a state that builds resilience – personal energy is accumulated, not wasted – leaving more energy to manifest intentions and harmonious outcomes.”

In Western Society we have valued the brain and its logical intellect over emotions for far too long. We seem to have overlooked the power of the heart. According to this latest research, the heart-brain is more powerful than the head-brain (thinking brain) and has a vastly expanded electromagnetic field; much bigger than the head-brain and it extends several feet from the body. Our heart energy therefore dramatically affects those around us. When in this space you are more expansive, resourceful, connected and in a state of flow. The heart-brain seems instinctive and intuitive as it senses information in the environment before the head-brain – and even before it happens. This is your own system of future precognition. It makes sense therefore to make decisions from the heart, intuitively; honouring that gut-feel. Heart-based consciousness is the new 5th-dimensional way of being. 

The Link Between Love and Health

At the Institute of HeartMath experimentation with positive intent has shown a boost in the immune system. Negative thoughts like anger, depression, blame and frustration, have been found to suppress the immune system. DNA observed under a microscope tightened up and became shorter, some of the genes were shut down, limiting the range of possibilities we can tap and choose from. When they focused on positive emotions such as love, joy, gratitude and appreciation, the DNA strands began to relax and unwind, allowing an infinite range of inner potential to be tapped. 

Dr Masaru Emoto’s intention experiment proved the same. Dr Emoto, author of “The Hidden Messages in Water” (2004), said that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water. He performed a series of experiments observing the physical effect of words, prayers, music and environment on water. The water would then be frozen to form crystalline structures. The crystalline structure of the water imprinted with positive words was far more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing than those imprinted with dark, negative phrases. If our words and thoughts have this effect on water crystals, just imagine what kind of effect they have on people considering we are 70% water.

By being more love and light-filled, you affect the world profoundly. A master doesn’t change the world by battling with external events. Instead, true mastery is healing and forgiving your inner perceptions of the world and changing judgmental and fear-related perceptions to loving ones, remaining non-attached and compassionate. The master works on the source of the problem, the mind. Mastery is restoring your mind to its natural condition of love and light.

Fifth Dimensional Consciousness 

Heart-based consciousness is transformational. As we shift from head to heart, from separation and ego to true unity, we transform our consciousness from fear-based to love. The 3-dimensional Earth, the plane of karma, is where we experience the duality of light and dark, good and bad, right and wrong, other and self – all the opposites. We learn and gain great insights through experiencing duality. To move into 5th dimensional unity consciousness, we have to integrate all duality in us: head and heart, ego and true self, fear and love. We also have to evolve our consciousness beyond any idea of good and bad or right and wrong or you and me or past and future. The 5th dimension is one of integrated unity, connection, light and love. We finally get the mind out of the past and the future, settling in the joy and expansion of the moment of now. Shifting into the heart, naturally brings you into the present moment where all is well. 

The heart therefore is a gateway to higher consciousness. Through love, acceptance, forgiveness, gratitude, compassion, generosity and joy, you open the heart and naturally expand your energy field; your field of consciousness. You then feel your connection with everyone and everything. In a state of heart coherence your energy, good health and youthfulness naturally returns.

The Healing and Creative Power of Love

Our true nature is love, joy and peace. To realise this, we have to identify and dismantle the ego’s illusions, for it is our attachments to the illusionary material world of the ego, especially at this time of the year, that prevents us from experiencing a festive season that is truly peaceful, loving and magical. Opening our hearts, opens us to the true spirit of Christmas – one of joy, connection, generosity, peace, love and goodness for you and everyone around you. Love, compassion and kindness brings profound healing to the giver and receiver alike.

Heart-based Practices

Heart expansion 

In your meditation, bring your awareness in to the Heart Centre. Breathe into it and expand the electromagnetic field of your heart centre. Feel yourself connecting to the source of love and light. 

Group Activity

Embrace the power of group activity such as group meditation, group healing and community projects. Intend that your every activity is for the highest and greatest good of all. 

Healing

Bring healing to yourself, others and the planet through visualising and positive thought-intention. Healing takes place when loving high-frequency light transmutes negativity and dis-ease. Healing can be sent over vast distances. Respecting free will, always intend that the healing is in their highest and greatest good. Detach from the outcome, accepting what will be, will be for their greatest good. 

Gratitude

The quickest route to the heart is a practice of gratitude. Gratitude connects you to all the goodness in your life and restores your sense of well-being. A daily practice of gratitude has been proven to dramatically increase your levels of happiness.

Blessing

Practice the gift of blessing. It evokes powerful divine energy. What you give, you receive.
