Tabula Rasa

A blank slate, a clean slate, a fresh start, a new page...

The new year offers new opportunities to take on the transformative process for Your ReBegin. It's a great time of year to start up new endeavors, but also a great time for clearing the slate for what last year was.  Don't skip over the important step of clearing the decks! Allow yourself time to be with nothingness. You can't fill a container that is already full, so after the mad rush of energy that was likely expended toward the end of the year holidays, means January is great for recharging the batteries. Take a breath and allow yourself to slow down a little - empty out. And within that period of nothingness, comes renewed inspiration for the journey ahead.

In the cycle of life, winter in the northern hemisphere is time for slowing down, breaking down the life from the previous year to use as fertilizer for new life.

Worried about past mistakes or overwhelmed with too much on the mind? This is a great time to unleash any baggage or past hindrance to your creativity and tap into your pure potential. Wipe everything else away and start from scratch. Enjoy the refreshing beauty.

Do you fear the idea of nothingness, emptiness? Frightened of a blank canvas, the blank page? Embrace the void as a great place to be - let yourself sit with that for as long as needed. We tend to feel like we have to fill our lives with busy-ness in order to feel alive, but we are part of nature and need to follow the natural rhythm. Just as fields benefit from being fallow from time to time to replenish their nutrients, so must we to recharge the creativity we expend. All manner of life is working beneath the surface, unseen to the eye, but with processes most important for us. Our unconscious mind will come up with all manner of creative ideas to birth out of the blank slate.

HAPPY NEW YEAR (in the Gregorian Calendar that is) 
2011 is a wonderful new canvas for life: 
Enjoy what manifests!
