Finding Clarity through the Cycles of Life

How do we find Clarity & maintain Continuity with our intentions, commitments, and personal growth, even through the challenges of life?

Natural Impulses toward Growth

Many of us have started this new Solar Cycle, the New Year with intentions in some form, perhaps with a vision, resolutions, goals, hopes, wishes, or prayers. All of these have value because they represent a calling from our innermost to create, to meet needs, to commune, to bless, to bring something wonderful to Life. The impulse toward this is so important because, as we move more deeply into heart centered clarity, our intentions become more deeply aligned with our soul’s purpose, and ultimately can draw us deeper into wholeness. This is beneficial for each of us as individuals and for all humanity. When one person connects to and lives their purpose, everyone benefits as we move deeper into wholeness and communion with all life.

Tossed by the Waves

So, many of us create intentions and resolutions and, inevitably, as the days pass, challenges arise in life. Sometimes we navigate this, galloping along on Purpose. Yet, for many of us, we sometimes find ourselves swept away by the concerns of our everyday lives, stress, and unforeseen difficulties, especially in today’s society of collective trauma and ever shifting sands, uncertainty can often lead to a sense of instability. Trauma and compounding stress reduce our resilience and ability to feel connected, respond, adapt, and maintain a sense of continuity of focus in our lives. Many of us are habituated to go-go-go mode (the mode encouraged by western society). It’s not uncommon to find our attention diverted to problems, “putting out fires” or getting sucked into distractions that temporarily ease the sense of stress (or make it worse).

We need to find our eye / I in the storm, find our center, and be guided from within.

Yet, instead sometimes, before you know it, the intention that once seemed so close to your heart can feel distant, perhaps unreachable, sometimes even shrouded by busyness, doubts, fears, and the guilt and shame that often come along with losing track of our intentions.

Perhaps you’ve already bumped up against some form of this in 2022.

Yet, it’s so important that we don’t give up!

Beyond disillusion toward the Continuity of Renewal

No matter where you find yourself, whether you've been galloping along, you just fell off your horse, you’ve been wandering lost in a murky bog, or torment has become your companion ~ at any point you can choose compassion for yourself, and make a choice to give yourself the nurturing you need to find your Clarity, Connection, and Creativity to

review and Renew your intentions & commitments.

We often have the sense that we need to “get back on track” …at some point
