Interesting title huh? Are there people in your life that you wish you could “unmeet”? As we enter the first month of the new year it may be a great time to examine the relationships in your life. Let’s start with family.
Family is a separate category. We may have family members that we would never chose as friends and we may have to tip toe around these relationships. That being said there is no reason why your voice can’t be heard and your feelings expressed if there are things going on that bother you. Often times we can speak our truth in a gentle and loving way to get our point across. If the person still doesn’t get it than you can reinforce what you say with your actions. For instance, say you have a family member that likes to drop in on you without calling. Because you work out of the home this can be inconvenient and it disrupts your schedule. You kindly explain this and then the family member still shows up. You can deal with this by opening the door and say that although it is very nice to see them, now is not a good time for you and then do not let them in. It may be extremely awkward for you but the person will get the hint. Chances are good that it won’t happen again.
Friends and acquaintances are people you can take a good look at and decide if they are people you want to keep in your life. I feel a good friendship is one that is in balance and is not drama filled. When I talk about balance I like to use a teeter totter metaphor. I am not saying that balance is the point where the ride is totally level with no upward or downward movement. What I am talking about is that there are times when you are on the top giving to the person on the bottom and the reverse is true. The balance comes in when there are pretty equal times of giving and receiving. I know I have had people in my life that were great at taking. When they had problems I would patiently listen on the phone but when the reverse was true they never had the time to listen. Also they brought what I coined as dramarama into my life. Nothing was simple. Some of these people could have given Scarlett O’Hara a run for her money. Any suggestions I may have had that would help were disregarded and basically they were just looking for someone to vent to. I found it exhausting. At the same time I was meeting new people that were givers as well as takers. Little by little I embraced those relationships and let go of the others. Kindness is key and I never was mean spirited. I found that most of the time it was a natural drifting apart. If it was necessary and I was pressed I would say something like I feel we are on different paths in our lives and there are things I am going to explore that will limit my time. I will be in touch.

One of the biggest questions I get in my practice is “What is my life purpose?”. This is a question with a multitude of answers. First let’s define life purpose. Life purpose is the idea that each person on the planet has a reason or purpose for being here. What I find often happens is that people feel it needs to be some grandiose idea. I find in my readings for them though that it can be as simple as being a good mom or dad. What does that mean then? To find something that you love to do and make the time to do it. When you are happy at what you are doing you send off waves of good vibrations that not only lift your spirit but lift the spirits of those around you. We all know what it is like to be with a Debbie Downer who brings everyone down well the reverse is true and your life purpose could be to live the happiest life possible.
As we enter 2017, it is a good time to look at where we are in our careers. Are we happy with what we are doing? Do we feel respected and appreciated? In our parents’ time it was all about work versus play. Work being what you did to earn a living play doing what you enjoyed doing. Time has taught us that we can be happy and should be happy at our work. Joy in the workplace and feeling good each time you go into work should be a goal. Take some time now to examine your life and where you can infuse it with more of what makes your heart sing. It will be well worth the effort and no better life purpose!

Many of us are all too happy to say goodbye to 2016. It has been quite a year and as we approach 2017 it is a good time to Review and Renew as I like to say. The Review part is taking a look at 2016 and what the year brought you in all areas of your life. Were there lessons that were learned that were beneficial? How are your relationships going? Your career? Your location? Are they working for you? I am not a big fan of resolutions but I believe strongly in looking at all these areas and deciding what you want to keep and what you would like to discard. That is the Review part and I think prior to that Happy New Year welcoming in 2017 it is time well spent to look at how 2016 worked for you. A good time to visit these questions in meditation maybe a bit of journaling as well. Set aside some quality time to explore this.
Now we come to the Renew part. Numerology defined by Wikipedia is: any belief in the divine, mystical relationship between a number and one or more coinciding events. It is also the study of the numerical value of the letters in words, names and ideas. It is often associated with the paranormal, alongside astrology and similar divinatory arts. Simply put it is the study of numbers and how they effect your life. For instance 2017 when broken down as you would do in numerology is a number 1. What this means is that it is a year for new beginnings. Taking risks and making changes that you may have been putting on the back burner. This year is significant because its vibration is beckoning us to step out of our comfort zone and explore where our lives may be lived in a happier more satisfying way.
The number 1 also encourages us to assume leadership roles. Maybe there is a situation you find yourself in that you have been stepping back from. This year would be the year to move forward in a big way. Your unique personality full of the gifts that you bring to the world can be a huge asset this year. Take charge…move forward…the number 1 is in your favor!
Tuesday, December 20th We will be discussing this and I will be getting in as many mini readings as I can to give you an idea what this year may have in store for you.
