Merry meet everyone, and I hope you've all recovered from your crazy New Year parties. In my case it was a late night at home with my husband and some tunes, but I am totally rock and roll still, honest!
So 2015; what's it got in store for us then? I want to start by pointing out that in numerology (and thanks to my radio co-host Dax Carlisle for this information) 2015 reduces down to an eight, which is the number of abundance. What this means is that whatever you are focused on this year you are going to get it and lots of it. Focused on growing your business? Loads of customers and sales. Looking for love? You'll be tripping over potential partners.
So far, so good. But the key to success, like in witchcraft, is intention. It is the basic principle of Law of Attraction. Let's say, as it's January, you spent quite a lot over the Yuletide period and you're going to have to watch the pennies for the next few months. The first thing you need to do is look at your budget (if you're not sure how this works check out this blog post from the vaults) so that you know how much you need to spend on essential bills, how much you need to live off of, how much you can afford to put towards the credit card bill, and then how much is left for what I call pocket money; the treats like a latte on the way to work, or a Saturday night take-away.
It is at this point that focus and the Law of Attraction come into play, particularly with regards abundance. In a situation like the one above, what would be your main focus? Some of us would see that although we would have to be careful financially for a while, we can at least make the minimum payments and, if we ration our treats, we can probably have a bit extra at the end of the month to pay off another few bucks or quid. We know this because we are focused on how much we have, and we know we are perfectly capable of paying all the bills. What happens? The end of the month rolls around, all the bills have been paid, you managed to get a pizza when your mates turned up one night, and you still had money left over at the end of the month. You were absolutely ok. The Universe gave you exactly what you needed, in other words enough money to pay your bills and reduce your debt slightly.
However some people will be focused on what they lack. Maybe they put way more on the credit card than they should have, or an unexpected bill came in that wiped out the account. In this case the person may be focused on their lack of money. They do a budget like the first person but they don't see how they can possibly survive on so little, and their debts are so huge they'll never be able to pay them off. In this case, by focusing on the lack you end up attracting more lack. You just can't seem to live within your budget and end up putting all your groceries and fuel on the credit card, increasing your credit card balance, so you worry even more about the debt. Then, just as you think the Universe is giving you a break and you get an unexpected pay rise or something, you get slammed with a massive unforeseen bill. This is also the abundance energy working for you, but in a negative way. The Universe listens to your dominant thoughts and thinks "they're thinking about this a lot, they must like it! I'll give them more." So the abundance of lack produces more stress and financial woe while an abundance of plenty sees you clearing any debts, enjoying nights out and living relatively stress free.
So think very carefully about how you use this eight year energy. What do you want from life this year and beyond? Yes you may have debts, but trust in your abilities to budget correctly and the Universe's ability to send you exactly what you ask for, more money, rather than thinking it's hopeless and then being surprised when the Universe sends you less money and more debt. I know it sounds simple but I've lived it and I know it works. No matter how bad things may seem, I always have absolute faith in myself and the Universe that it will all turn out alright in the end, and it always does. Of course now we know this effect will be magnified by the abundance energy for the next twelve months we can really use it to our advantage and by this time next year we could all be living our dreams! How good would that be?
So that's a heads up about the energy of the year and how you can make it work for you. In my next post I'll be drawing a tarot card for each month of the year and seeing if there are any clues as to what 2015 has in store for us.
Until next time everyone,
Blessed be )0(
