Wow! What a doozy this year has been!
Here in Australia the New Year was ushered in with billowing smoke affecting every capital city in Australia, all stemming from the horrendous bush fires that seemed to be burning up the whole country. By the time the last fires were mere embers, we had lost over 3 billion animals, 75 human lives and over 3000 buildings and homes. The full long-term consequences won’t be known for years but are already massive and mounting; plant and animal extinction, unemployment, trauma and ongoing anxiety in the face of the power of nature to name but a few. Following quickly on the heels of the bush fires was Covid-19 and the massive disruption to everyone’s world.
While in the UK, there has been a political dark cloud with BREXIT unknowns and changes that will impact daily lives in the year to come. The effects of COVID-19 have transformed the way society functions and has led to much uncertainty approaching the new year ahead. Being a global impact – it is a change that has brought us all together and highlighted the importance of global community.
Of course, a silver lining always accompanies dark clouds.
2020 is a universal Year Four in Numerology. Four is all about consolidation and slowing down, looking after and nurturing oneself on a physical level. With lockdown, travel restrictions and working from home, so many people could slow down and have more time for themselves. Ironically, this has led to many people experiencing better physical health. Regular hand washing and low pollution levels due to the less car and plane travel, the curtailment of many industries has led to an all-time modern-day low pollution levels. Gaia was given a breathing space! People in India could, for the first time in many decades, see the Himalayan mountains. Animals, birds and fish were observed in areas where they hadn’t been seen for years. People found themselves travelling at a less hectic pace, the perfect prescription in a Year 4. They were working at home and not caught up travelling on busy roads or squeezed on to busy public transport. There was more family time. It was also a good litmus test for many relationships, with couples spending far more time together. So, not surprisingly, on one hand we had a real spike in divorce and separation and the unpleasant news of a distinct rise in domestic violence. Fortunately, this was countered by other relationships being strengthened helped by a less hectic pace of life and more quality time with each other. Many older people experienced greater contact and care from neighbours and immediate family.
2021 is a universal year five which is all about personal freedom –something that is likely to be challenged by the looming prospect of mandatory vaccination! It’s also a year where people like to have time alone and be in nature. This might lead to a great deal of frustration with so many travel restrictions and lockdowns still in place. Wild Potato Bush can help with the sense of frustration as too can Red Grevillea where you know what you want but can’t work out how to achieve it. Of course, a very simple way to connect to nature if you’re not able to access it directly is the Devic Essence in White Light Essences range.
Once we have more time after restrictions and lockdown have been lifted, it again is going to be an opportunity for further learning and education. We have run three very well-attended online courses this year – the first time we have offered the Level 1, Numerology and White Light Essences online. These courses and more are all available to purchase and do at your own speed and in the comfort of your own home.
The same too for our Correspondence Course which can be studied at home with no time limit for completion. It explores the Bush Essences at an extraordinary depth with material that has never been presented before in any of our workshops. It contains 10 study modules representing 60 hours of self-tuition and up to 3 hours of direct contact with your tutor including assessment and comprehensive feedback.
To start the New Year I would recommend a good spraying in every room of the Space Clearing Mist to really energetically clear any negative residue from 2020-or earlier. I would also suggest putting a bottle of Electro in the four corners of your house. With 5G unleashed on us!
Many people take the opportunity at the beginning of the New Year to do a good cleansing detox. The Purifying Essence is a great way to clear emotional baggage. One of the other aspects of a Year Five is that it is a great time to sort through and resolve family and unresolved emotional issues. In Numerology, five is the centre of the emotional plane and just about any of the Bush Essences will be beneficial this year. Though especially the Relationship Essence which works on the relationship we have with both our mothers and fathers, as well as old resentment, blocked and held-in feelings
To start the year on a very positive and optimistic note you could also consider a couple of weeks on Sunshine Wattle, or Abund Essence.
I hope some of these suggestions are of interest and benefit to you and I wish you a very happy, enjoyable, peaceful and safe festive season and New Year.
Much Love, Light & Respect.
