Entering 2016 with a Heart as Light as a Feather

Maat by Lisa Iris

As the year 2015 draws to a close, so many of us are breathing a huge out-breath of relief, looking forward to a new beginning. There’s no doubt about it, it’s been a tough year, a year riddled with violence from so many different subtleties of life. And yet, my heart feels light as a feather. How is that possible?

I have to admit that the violence in Paris shook me to the core. In reality, it was a grand awakening for for me. While others went into fear and anger, my heart exploded with compassion. Yes, I have compassion for the victims and their families, not just those in Paris but for all the violence happening in the world. In addition, my heart’s expansion reached out with passionate love for those who are perpetrating the violence. Those who are in so much pain that they are obsessed with acting out in such violent ways.

When I first read about Paris, I was in such a state of shock that my mind could not comprehend such actions against humanity, therefore my mind disengaged in the overwhelm of it, allowing my heart to take the lead. And for that I shall forever be grateful. These acts of terrorism shook me to the core and at the core of everything is Love.

Paris brought everything to light. All the underlying pain and hatred that’s been brewing under the surface for eons of time. Finally brought into the light. No, it’s not a pretty sight, but it is finally being seen, finally being talked about, personally as well as globally. Yes, there are those who are spewing words rooted in fear. Ugly words are flying in all directions. But there are also those, like myself, who have awakened to more Love and Compassion.

At the end of each year, I always spend some time in silence. It’s not a yearly review like I used to do in my younger years, searching for a new year’s resolution on how to improve my self. Instead it is a time to feel into the current energies. What’s flowing and what’s not… for myself as well as the collective.

This year, my heart is floating light as a feather. Why? Because as chaotic as the energy feels as it’s swirling around me, it’s on it’s way out. No longer stuck. It’s all flowing… up and out. Of course there are those who are still attempting to hang onto the old, but this antiquated energy has been freed and its collective momentum can not be stopped.

So what remains in the center of this swirling vortex of chaotic energy? The perfect vacuum to suck in all the Love and Compassion that’s flowing from the collective of OUR hearts. The Love and Compassion to soothe humanity through the tough times of transition being experienced by those who are currently awakening. There is nothing we need do. We are not here to rescue. We are here to breathe new Love and Life into the collective consciousness and cheer everyone on as they rise from the ashes to discover their own sovereignty. A community of victims will never survive, but a community of sovereign beings can rise to create a new world of Peace and Prosperity.

The new year of 2016 is stirring the passion of my heart because for the first time in a very long time our Light is shinning brightly and Love is flowing freely. I am entering 2016 with my heart as light as a feather. Perhaps you’d like to join me in a few moments of silence, heart to heart, to expand our collective consciousness as the Creators of a New Earth with hearts as light as feathers.

  2. My experience of 2015 has been as you describe – chaotic swirling, on again off again, high energy, low enrgy, grief and despair – losing 7 people close to my heart. And yet, I feel a lightness and hope – a letting go and an allowing all things to be as they are, that leaves me and everyone around me completely free to be who they are. I love your words —

    “There is nothing we need do. We are not here to rescue. We are here to breathe new Love and Life into the collective consciousness and cheer everyone on as they rise from the ashes to discover their own sovereignty. A community of victims will never survive, but a community of sovereign beings can rise to create a new world of Peace and Prosperity.”

    I lift my glass to us all sovreign beings – “all the Love and Compassion that’s flowing from the collective of OUR hearts”

    • Your words give me great JOY.

      I am sorry for all your losses and…. I applaud you for your ability to see through the eyes of “hope” with a lightness of heart.

      Your words are very timely for me because I just awoke from dreamtime on the first day of this new year fully realizing that my life has become one of Ease and Grace simply because I have learned to “allow things to be as they are… leaving me and everyone around me completely free to be who they are.”

      I lift my glass to YOU and embrace you with Love and Joy! 🙂
