The importance we place on numbers ensures that the energies of 2016 will differ from that of 2015.
As we close the book on 2015 and welcome 2016, it is not as simple as the stroke of midnight on December 31 instantly changes from one vibrational energy to another. Rather, as our focus changes from one year to another, our subconscious and the collective subconscious aligns with the vibration of the new energy.
2016 is a 9 year (2+0=1+6=9). The number 9 represents the completion of a cycle, being the last single digit. It is also as far away as one can get from unity (number 1), but ironically 9 always gives way to a 1 (i.e. 2017 will be a 1 year – a year of new starts, fresh beginnings and unity). Do not be surprised if in 2016 you find yourself more driven to releasing the past, cutting ties, changing work, home; basically anything you feel has energetic ties to the past that is holding you back. You will be completing cycles on many levels.
This year will also see further change in the world. The words I keep getting are transparency and disclosure. All that has been kept secret and hidden in the dark will be exposed. Many are comfortable with the illusion (and to quote modern culture, “many of them are so injured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it”) but there is no going back, as the light is here and is growing. Reactions will be as varied as there are souls walking this earth, but it is important for those that understand the necessity of this process to maintain their centre. Remember that 9 brings the end of cycles.
For those walking a path of enlightenment, the last few years have brought growth, often through challenge. This is always the way of the trailblazer, but the closer we get to the end, more will awaken, and the path will become clearer.
I always like to add a certain amount of ceremony to the start of the year. I am fortunate to be near a beach in a warm climate, so I took the opportunity to swim in the ocean. I will also do a smudging, then spend some time in nature grounding the energies of this new year.
I wish you all a 2016 of growth, and bless that your path is graced by the divine. xo
