Eventually, if we try to freeze frame relationships forever as they were in one perfect (or shitty) moment and don't trust that we can change and evolve together as we now are, or if we hang on too tight fearing other people's growth, relationships get stuck. Which feels a whole lot like death. Because it is. That's what is required. That is what one must surrender to in order to grow.
Like the fruit tree, once the leaves and pettles are ready to fall off, you can't stop the growth process or bring those old bits back. You're not meant to. But if you surrender to the process, you can perhaps realign alongside each other on the other side, budding with new little fruits of who you're meant to be now. Sometimes, okay, it might be time for one of those trees to die and a new one to come up in its place. But more often than not, we have many years of growth to continue along side each other if we so choose....in a slightly more ambulant, nomadic, human way.
But my point is, this New Years, this new moon that sets the tone for the first month of the new year, hold your vision and all those you love in your heart. But don't be afraid to feel the feels and let their hand go for a moment, while you shed a few old pettles of old beliefs and the shrivelling, browning leaves and emotions of who you thought you were and how you thought things (and maybe others) were meant to be, or what roles you thought they were meant to play, to make way for the new and who you're really here to be and what you're here to create and co-create now. It might feel ackward right now. But you might be pleasantly surprised in many ways by what and who is waiting for you on the other side. I've said it a thousand times, let go and let soul. It knows so much more than your ego when it comes to matters of the heart. More than that, the divine feminine presence we all have within knows better than anything how to navigate this space with trust, love, humility and compassion (and that part is never surprised...because she already knew it was coming,) while some part of the ego would have you write the process of as nuts. It's not though.
Happy New Year to you. May your journey into 2017 be gentle. Looking forward to seeing you on the other side.
Until next year, have fun, take care.
