The theme for January is GET READY, GET SET…………
January 2014 is a month of getting all your ducks in a row in preparation for the times to come. It is a good beginning to the year of the Warrior. The Warrior energy bursts forth as a desire for organization, “to do” lists, and focus. There is great satisfaction in clearing, cleaning, setting new intentions and getting things back on track.
The visual is that of a track star at the start line getting ready for the race. The athlete is mentally prepared, physically prepared and hopefully emotionally prepared as well. They are as ready as they can be after training and preparing for months, which may have included losing weight, revising their diet, and making their physical preparation a priority in their lives. They would have been incredibly disciplined about focusing on their goals. And now they are just waiting for the gun to go off giving them a signal to go and give it their full throttle.
The waiting and anticipation at the start when you are totally ready can be challenge. It is a pregnant moment that is waiting for action. This is what we may experience this month and patience will be required in those pregnant moments when everything seems set up and ready to go and still there is a delay or a hesitation before the energy is released.
The tension created by the hesitation can cause irritation and impatience and even doubt as you may question the validity or the rightness of what you are doing or intending to do. Be patient and keep clearing and organizing the mundane aspects of your life. This is a month where focusing on your foundation is essential. Look at what you may be procrastinating and get caught up.
The inspiration of what could be is pulling our focus forward, but the tasks that have been piling up are holding us back. Do not resist, just get organized and get to work. It is a great month for “to do lists” that can be rewritten daily as tasks are crossed off.
Are you prepared? Are you ready? If you were to leave this planet today, are all your affairs in order?
The opportunity this month is to get things done and to become more organized than you have ever been. There is also a great opportunity to finally eliminate old projects, clutter and energy that have weighed you down. You have a chance to establish a new set of priorities and rules and intentions for yourself as well as to create some new healthy habits that should include raising the quality of your life.
Your daily question to yourself should be, “Am I ready for anything?”
Your daily mantra, “I am ready for anything!”
The challenge this month is in not allowing impatience, despair, judgment, irritation, grumpiness and overwhelm get to you. If you feel overwhelmed, take baby steps. If you feel despairing, focus on prayer, beauty and gratitude. If you feel irritated and impatient, remind yourself to be patient and to trust the timing of the universe, as it is usually perfect. Be accepting rather than judgmental, and focus on the mundane tasks.
