For those of you who know a little about numerology, you might have heard that last year we were in a Universal 9 year (2+0+1+6 = 9). This means the year was focused a lot on bringing up issues, and forcing us to let go of things that no longer served our highest good.
I don’t think there was any person that I spoke to that wasn’t battered and bruised, and limping across the finish line of 2016. We lost incredible souls, and we were put through the wringer, personally and globally on a political stage. A 9 year is focused a lot on bringing up the darkness so that we can shine the light on it – to heal or let go.
Standing on the threshold of a New Year, and a new Universal cycle (2+0+1+7 = 1) I am certainly embracing all that is new. As the end of the year rolled around, things changed drastically. I had no idea I would be where I am standing now. Thinking back to the beginning of 2016, I am still trying to process how I got here. Universal 1 years are all about new beginnings, sowing the seeds of what we want our future to look like, and planning ahead for the next 9 year cycle, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically.
To say it’s been an incredible whirlwind journey of trust and faith is an understatement. I am letting go of everything as we move into a new year, friendship, a home, a career, my family and support networks, and moving across the world to start afresh.
I’ve been asked why a million times, and I’ve never fully been able to articulate why sometime between October and December, I not only decided to move to Scotland, but everything possible has fallen in place to facilitate that move in the easiest and smoothest way imaginable.
All I can really say is, that when I went there in October, I felt a deeper call, a soul urging to take a leap of faith and move. Whether this will be the best two years of my life, or some of the most challenging – or more likely a combination of both – is yet to be seen, but it’s a calling I wasn’t able to ignore. I can’t rationally explain to others why this feels right, or why I’m leaving security and family to travel alone to a foreign land, other than to say that this is something I have to do for myself, for my soul, and that it’s as aligned to a higher calling as I’ve ever had.
Trusting that everything is working out has been a major lesson in itself, but I’ve certainly come a long way from control to trust to make this shift. I can almost feel the components of my life shifting and falling into place as I take action here and there, inspired by something outside – or perhaps more accurately deep inside – myself.
So, as I begin this journey I hope to share what I learn, and what I discover by being a true soulful vagabond.
