Each year rituals have become more and more important to me. I enjoy the celebration and discipline that comes with the consistency of creating head-clearing space for myself. Be it daily meditation practice, my morning cup of coffee or annual exercises to set me up for the year ahead.
As a new year dawns, I love going through the previous year and noting what I've learned - how I've grown, how I responded when things got tough (read: fear + doubt crept in…) and ultimately, what to leave behind, and, more importantly, what to take with me as I leap into a fresh calendar year.
Once that's complete, I LOVE doing a card reading to understand monthly themes for the coming year.
A few months back, I was gifted a beautiful set of Crystal Cards by a woman I'd only just met 10 mins before. She said they'd been at her house for some time awaiting the rightful owner and it was clear to her they were for me. (She literally jumped out of her seat to run + get them for me) W O W. She further explained who they were from, and I've cherished them ever since.
After completing my typical card reading, it dawned on me that having a path for the year from the mineral world would provide great insight.
So many of you have excitedly reached out wanting to learn more about crystals, so over the next 12 months, I'll share the monthly crystal theme with you as a means of sharing both insight + education.
It is exciting to have a platform where years of learning can come to life!
I laughed out loud when this card came up. Of COURSE this is the theme for 2015. So many of you have mentioned, myself included, that 2015 is the year of getting outside. Being in nature, our feet on the ground is where we gain so much clarity. It is also related to our Earth + Root Chakra - so all about survival, stability, grounding and understanding what is most important to us.
Earth is the foundation upon which everything is built.
When we connect to the Earth energy, we realize all that is available to us as humans. We also realize everything we need to survive is available to us from and through the Earth. This is the year we will need to look closely at our use of resources - what do we truly need to live and how can we take some of the pressure off of poor Mother Earth. Always wanting more has us destroying the very element that provides us with all we'll ever need. This is something I'll be exploring more myself this year as I consider what I REALLY need and where my true happiness lies.
This is the year to root into the earth, ground yourself energetically and know all the strength, energy and abundance you seek will be provided. Believe in the cycle of life - give back as much as you take and give gratitude for receiving all you require.
Take action with the abundance of energy. Know the Earth is your fertile ground and when stepping forward into your future, the rock solid stability will be under foot.
