As I walked the nature path with my neighbors dog today seeing the smiling faces of many, I realized that my energy was low. The sun shining down upon me, the brisk air, and the contact with the Earth was enlivening me in a way that staying indoors and resting had not.
Allowing my shoulders to relax and my feet to make connection with the ground beneath me, I became aware of the earth supporting me as I breathed. Self- image, at times based on a sense of separation from others and from the objects that senses perceive, let go of its grip. It was at this moment that breath expanded lower into my belly and throughout my body. A new and vibrant energy pulsed through me.
These changes were not produced by any kind of “doing”, but instead experiencing the moment as it is with absolute presence. The sense of “being supported by the Earth” will shift your breath and your awareness, and when practiced on a regular basis will allow you to energize, ignite, and take action on the changes that will alter your life in the ways you dream and vision for this coming year.
With the coming of the New Year you may feel this need to renew, energize and shift into new awareness. The astrology for this first month of 2011 also brings with it opportunity to expand beyond our old patterns and beliefs, and energize life altering changes freeing us from perceived limitations.
Scott Wolfram of The Travelers Well www.travelerswell.com speaks on “igniting a vibrant explosion of energy” in your life now in the month of Janus.
He says in his most recent newsletter:
“… as we move into the New Year, we move into the month of January, which is named for the Roman god Janus. Janus is the god of boundaries and transitions, of doorways and new beginnings. At each New Year, we all pass over a boundary of time and transition from one year to the next. From the perspective of Janus, the New Year is more than changing the calendar it is the crossing of the boundary between the past and the future.”
He goes on to say that “the first 2-3 weeks of this year are the best times to energize 2011 as Jupiter will conjunct Uranus (at 27 degrees of Pisces) – which will not happen again until the year 2024! The conjunction of these two forward-looking and powerful planets provides an opportunity to energize the future oriented perspective of Janus. Jupiter and Uranus provide one of the most powerful astrological combinations to energize life altering changes, freeing us from the limitations of the past and projecting us into the future.”
