Welcome to the year 2022
Like me, you may be wondering wha't in store for us in 2022. Will we finally break free of covid pandemic concerns? Can we return to our normal lives again? Can we enjoy ourselves without worry? Most of us are asking questions like these, so I took a peek into what those in the know are saying...
According to psychological astrologer Jennifer Freed, 2022 brings us "an opportunity for reevaluation, repair, and rapid expansion." Okay, that sounds pretty good...but it may also involve some pretty intense change.
Astrologers The AstroTwins say "as old systems break down, space for new ones will emerge. And as the new year begins, we're in the thick of that in-between place, stumbling around in a state of cognitive dissonance." Cognitive dissonance is basically when we feel confused about what to do because our thoughts, feelings, and/or beliefs are in conflict inside. I'd say this fits in rather well with "reevaluation, repair, and rapid expansion." It's often true that inner tension fosters outer change.
Vedic Astrologer Katy Jane, PhD, says that "after two years of a pandemic, we've come to the well parched. Now we have to assert even more effort to become un-parched. Pump after pump, we're expecting refreshment of a certain kind only to get something else upon the return home. That something else is this: the knowledge that our thoughts create reality. In times past, we may have casually considered this notion...But in 2022, the reality-creating power of thought begins to affect all aspects of our lives. We wanted water, and we unleashed the power of the Mind instead."
Oh boy, does this resonate! I've been feeling it for a while now...that it's important to bring an even higher level of awareness to our language and speaking as a way of creating a different reality. For example, people are quick these days to say "They are..." or "It's their fault that..." or "They are the problem." I say let's be mindful of words like "they" or "them" when exploring divergent ideas and quit pointing fingers because such words and actions feed "us-versus-them" divisive energies when in the highest reality, there is no "us" or "them." There's just a "we," a human race trying to survive and thrive.
There's a lot to be said about the potentials of the year 2022, but this is what came through for me:
Every challenge is an opportunity for us to grow, expand, open, and spiritually mature a bit more. Let's make full use of this reset in our reality.
As always, remember that if you change nothing, nothing changes.
