December 2000: Crossing the Bridge

The year 2000 has been a major transitional year. It has taken us on a wild journey through the churning Rapids of Change, thrusting us out of our old, entrenched realities to the threshold of our New Lives.

When our calendars shifted from 1999 to 2000, it signified great changes. We began to move off of our old map and out of our old worlds. However, the New Millennium doesn't officially start until the beginning of the year 2001.

During the year 2000 we have been traveling through a very intense transitional zone, neither THERE nor HERE, neither in the old reality or in the New. We are no longer caterpillars and not yet butterflies. The year 2000 ripped us out of our old grid patterns and then reconfigured us so we will be ready to move into our new grid patterns in 2001.

We've been crossing a bridge from our old life situations into totally new ones. Often, this bridge has resembled a wildly gyrating suspension bridge over the abyss of our deepest fears. To cross the bridge, we have had to surrender much, either gracefully or by having it forcibly pulled away from us. It has taken tremendous strength and courage and a constant acceptance of change.

This year has been immensely challenging, but powerfully effective in getting us over the bridge. It has stripped away whatever has needed to be released from our lives and from our beings. It has helped us let go of many elements of our lives which we had been attached to; often rather forcibly stripping these things away from us. We have discovered that we no longer need or want many of the things which we previously held onto so tightly.

We have experienced the completion of many of our relationships, the letting go of friendships, the changing of jobs and residences, the recalibration of our dreams and desires. On an inner level, we have stripped our beings of numerous layers of illusion and old karmic patterns and become ever more true and real. This process is not yet complete. Even if we have changed our job and residence, often we have merely moved to a transitional position, one which serves as a launching pad into our New Lives.

Much of our focus this year has been on completion and closure. Letting go of the past and remaining empty until the New is revealed. We have had to embrace NOT KNOWING and dwell in the realm of the Unknown. This has not been an easy process and has entailed a great deal of effort, but it has gotten the job done.

Throughout the heaviness, activity and intensity of this year, we have also been looking for our joy, searching for those elements in our lives which make us happy and fulfilled and moving towards them.

The month of November was full of unbelievable activity. Often, we barely had time to breathe or eat; there was always so much to do. At the same time, we have been reconnecting our beings on a deep core level. Numerous veils have been lifting and we are finally returning to a sense of inhabiting our True Self which we haven't felt in years.

In December, we will continue to be extremely busy. Our focus will still be on closure and completion. It's vitally important that we bring as much to completion as possible before the end of the year. This affects both inner and outer levels.

We need to find any of the dangling, incomplete elements in our lives, and bring them to closure. We need to sift through our beings and find any limiting behavior patterns or habits that need to be transformed and do it. Look for the places in your life which cause you stress and unhappiness and see how you can change them or let them go.

The cleaner and clearer we become as we enter the year 2001, the sooner we can move into our New Lives. We want to enter 2001 as free and unencumbered as possible.

The good news about December is that a new lightness and joy will be entering our lives. Yes, we will be incredibly busy completing the past and making major adjustments and recalibrations, but this will be easier to achieve than before. And in December, we will continue to experience more changes of residence, jobs and letting go of relationships. All of this serves to move us into our appropriate positions for our New Lives.

Throughout December, doors of new opportunities will open, bringing in much appreciated fresh air and fresh energy. These are the hints of our New Directions. Be ready for happy surprises and bursts of joy which we haven't felt in a long time.

We are creating the templates for our future now!

Enjoy this wild ride into the New.

Let's fearlessly love with our whole beings!

Be constantly open to the unexpected!

BE REAL, no matter what!
