Three Lessons 2019 Taught Us, Three Things To Know About Navigating the 2020 Energies, & What It All Means

Happy New Year. This is a time of year where I pause. I unplug. I go within. I listen. I process the lessons of 2019 & the past decade while acknowledging the gifts & blessings received.

I ask the divine within me what 2020 & the next decade asks of me moving forward. I feel into the blessings & the chaos. I allow the wisdom from my ancestors & divine team to be openly received.

One thing I have learned over time is that change is constant in the grand scheme of the Universe and 2019 was a BIG year for change and transformation to prepare us for a powerful punch in 2020. Are you ready?

A Reflection

I DON’T do resolutions. Do you? Instead, I reflect.

As I sit here reflecting on the past year and decade, I realize that I would not be here without YOU. So, I thank you for supporting me in this journey of mine which transitioned into a business on its own over the years with 2 simple things in mind:

  1. How do I fix the broken me and restore wholeness in my life
  2. and the desire to help others in their path especially those without a voice, abused, neglected or facing end of life.

It has taken me 3 weeks to formulate what I was going to say and how – well maybe longer as my prep started in November.

There is SOOOOOO much happening energetically at rapid rates that I found myself challenged with putting together all I know in a format simple enough and easy enough for you to follow, grasp, and possibly align with.

I was chuckling this week with some of my clients on how the Universe does NOT know it is a new year, new decade, and by gosh I gotta have my newsletter and forecast done by January 1st.

I have learned to pause and wait for the alignment of flow to show up. 

Into the ancient forest I went. Lost my mind & found my soul in Canada 2019

This time last year (November 2018 – January 2019), I posted many energy updates including a video stating how the energies then were about to “disrupt”, shift and shake the paradigm.

This was a massive shift from old belief systems and patterning to a new more aligned one. Many of us resisted and others aligned.

The year 2019 was clearly about with all the intertwining lessons and growth in between while learning how to navigate the flow of change.

So what did 2019 teach us and what is in store for 2020?  Here is my  review and guide.

What 2019 Taught Us

Last year was a THREE year in numerology where we witnessed the past, present, and future colliding – personal stuff, generational, karmic, and past life – all coming to a head.

It’s wakey wakey time. No more being asleep. We can no longer run away or seek out the easier route, because the easier route is to move into the path your soul came here to do and be.

There are many lessons taught in 2019, but I focus on three. The video will go into details, but here is a quick synopsis.

One of the first things we learned in 2019 is that NOT everything can be explained literally, materially, or physically in the egoic dominated material world.

Secondly, when we can step away from “the story” created by the egoic mind, we can understand our triggers are mere clues on the treasure map within us and can empower us beyond our expectations.

Thirdly, spiritually bypassing our way through life is no longer working. We can not afford to spiritual bypass our way through life like an addictive crutch moving forward. Doing the required inner work can no longer be shoved under a carpet and ignored.

In 2019:

  • We cleared out old outdated beliefs and patterns to make way for the new.
  • We connected deeper with our inner spirit aka divine aka soul
  • We were forced to do our inner work to allow for the opportunities to reveal themselves
  • We reconnected with all things divine.
  • We have been returning to the sacred ancient teachings.
  • We stepped away from ego or at least understood where ego’s place should reside.
  • We awakened to the collective
  • We integrated our shadows with our light

Why spiritual bypassing our way through life will no longer work.

In this segment, I will elaborate more on spiritual bypassing because I am aware that many of us either do not know what it is or we have a misconception of what it is.

So, I will address:

  • What is spiritual bypassing?
  • Examples of what spiritual bypassing looks like
  • When do we engage in spiritual bypass?

3 Things To Know About the 2020 Energies moving forward

Our culture is uncomfortable with pain, grief, and other negative feelings, wanting to only discuss or address these things if they are more sanitized pleasant emotions.

This casts shame on grief, anger, and other less pleasant emotions, casting them into the shadows. If we never shine a light down there, these shadows can fester like an unhealed open wound, and the denial mechanisms around them become more and more desperate.

Moving into the 2020 energies, the idea of Spiritually bypassing your way through life will not help anymore for any one of us. Trading one feel good addiction for another is more harmful than good.

We are stewards of this Great Mother and stewards is where we must return our priorities. It is our collective sacred duty.

2020 will create remarkable opportunities for us to move FORWARD with diligence and courage.  Depending upon our actual birthdate, how and when these changes takes place is different for every one of us.

With full commitment and conscious engagement, we can open doors to immense success, happiness, and financial flow in your life in 2020.

Think of 2020 as the year of ACCOMPLISHMENT — making your dreams real. But that’s just part of the story…

So moving forward, consider these three aspects:

  • Space weather including cosmic rays, solar cycles, and earth’s changing poles.
  • 2020 being a FOUR year in numerology
  • Addressing the shadows within – checking in vs checking out. Leading with vs ignoring the spirit within.

What it All Means

It means we stand in our truth unapologetic. We speak out for those who do not have a voice. We call out and address predatory behavior infiltrating sacred safe spaces and protect those preyed upon by predators. It means we do not stay silent.

It means we change the way we live and address simple things we can do NOW.

It means we do the hard inner work that is required of us.

As an empath, healer, intuitive, and trauma specialist we will continue to see unresolved trauma surface – personal, generational, karmic, and past life. The ideas around power, control, manipulation will continue to be “seen”.

We continue to come face to face with our shadows. The more we surrender the stories of the egoic mind and into the flow of our intuitive soulful self continues to rise.

Finally, this is election year, the Universe is asking us to VOTE with our conscious NOT by party affiliation. Do not let the external world brainwash you, manipulate you, bully you, or intimidate you into swaying from YOUR truth.

What does spirit within you say? Go there. Vote from THAT place.

Let’s take shame out of our unrealistic egoic expectations of BE-ing spiritual by sharing our experiences.

Life is a journey & lesson for evolution of soul to BE EXPLORED. That exploration continues into 2020.

THIS … THIS is multi-layered, multi-faceted. Some of this is individual & some of this is collective.

It’s a SH*T SHOW. Yes, it is … if we choose to see it this way or we can choose to see what is happening as an opportunity which brings me to a saying someone ones said to me early on my healing path.

What do you choose?

Again, thank you for BE-ing a part of this GRAND experiment called life with me and supporting my work.

With appreciation,
