We’re now in the second half of 2022 and like all calendar years, the second half is the beginning of the ramp up. The first half was all about getting used to the 6 energy of 2022, a time of building a strong foundation consisting of what we want in our personal lives, our homes, our communities, our countries and our world.
It’s not unusual to feel a bit slack in the first half of any calendar year. We are adjusting to the next number. The 6 energy is different to the change-mad 5-year of 2021. And we've felt like a break. We've had a bit of that, but it's time to evolve; 2022 to 2025 are the evolutionary years in the 9-year cycle. These are the manifest/do-stuff years, with 2022 being the first of them. This year we are building a foundation and we are supposed to be deciding what it will be made of: what values and principles will we use to form our new base?
Once July hits, it's slack time no more. Time to get serious. The ramp up will steadily grow over the next few months and become more intense, especially if we'd prefer to keep slacking off. Think of it as an end-of-year exam. If you’ve been studying, that is, building your foundation all year, you’ll be well-prepared, you’re not worried, your foundation is looking good, you’ll take the exam in your stride. If not, it’s cram time, something akin to the frantic all-nighter before the big test. That’s what December could be like. So, get to your building site and start prepping to pour that slab! Don't wait til the end-of-year scramble; you want to leave time for the 'concrete' to dry and become solid!
Here are some things I feel might be part of that slab. Remember the 6 is all about love, wealth, creativity, lusciousness, beauty and warmth.
Make agreements about things you want to do or experience with people you genuinely feel good being with, more to the point, are a pleasure to be with
Think of yourself as deserving of the best in life
Seek out affirming experiences and people
Let go of control
Only do what feels right, banish the shoulds
Love what you do
Only make promises you can keep
Prioritise time for yourself and with yourself
Visit quiet spaces, especially in nature
Speak well and kindly of yourself
Only feel, say or do things that reflect your inner desire
Listen to those who suggest ways to enhance or improve your life or who make constructive suggestions
Balance doing and being, with more time focused on the latter
Stay grounded, stay earthed, and nourish yourself on every level.
And three specific suggestions because they seem timely
Feeling back pain? The back carries burdens — literally! Dump them.
Feeling a loss of passion for your job or some people in your life? Find people and occupations and activities that promote joy, play and creativity. Direction in life does change. You can choose a different course.
And, to balance the global madhouse, go small, practical and personal. It's less cumbersome, safer and more achievable.
