Onward and Upwards!



Lena Stevens has skillfully shared what we most need to know about navigating the monumental changes that this month, December, is bringing us, and what to expect during this time of transition.

I was a “gypsy child,” meaning that because of various unusual family issues, I moved around a lot– from one house to another, one country to another, and one frame of reference and societal expectations to another.  Rootless?  Maybe.  But if you don’t have roots, perhaps you develop wings!

In any case, change has been the central focus of my life, and while I tend to cling to the familiar along with everyone else (“Better the devil you know than the one you don’t, aye?”) I’ve been able to survive rapid and radical change with most of my sanity intact.  And so can you.

The trick is to take a deep breath and let go of control.  If you can trust that not your ego but Spirit (Higher Self, God, Goddess, Allah, the One, Great Mystery, Creator, etc.) is the one in control and always has been, then it’s a bit easier.  After all, Spirit has been guiding our lives for all of our lives, in spite of ego’s efforts to usurp control.

So, whatever life presents this month, this final month of 2015, let yourself ride with it.  Surf the wave.  No fear!

As John Lennon said, “Everything will be alright in the end.  And if it’s not alright, it’s not the end.”
