What’s ready to go?


According to numerology, 2016 is a “9” year. A year of completions. A year of completing the old to make way for the new.

As we rapidly approach the end of 2016 (I know it’s only September, but it will be New Year’s Eve before we know it), what are you ready to complete in terms of prosperity, abundance, and money?

Cottonwood TreeI’ve been spending a lot of time down on the banks of the Mississippi these days, allowing myself to fill my body with the knowing of flow.

On my latest visit, I noticed the beautiful cottonwood trees which line the banks. Because the sand and shore are constantly eroding and moving, many trees have yards and yards of exposed roots.

The more the shore erodes, the deeper the roots burrow into the surrounding areas. At some point, the roots will run out of room because they will be blocked by the majestic bluffs which characterize this part of the river landscape. The tree will fall, making room for the new saplings which are growing up around the old growth.

Some of these trees look like they are barely holding on, ready to topple at any moment. The branches and leaves don’t look so good because there isn’t enough nutrition. And yet, it still holds; that’s what trees do.

As you consider what is completing for you in terms of abundance and money, I invite you to think about the habits and beliefs that are ready to go… and yet you cling to them because that’s what you do.

We make a lot of perseverance and hardship. We celebrate it. We reward it. We believe we will get rewarded if only we suffer enough. If we only hang on by our fingernails long enough, something will come in and rescue us, celebrate us for holding on for so long, proclaiming us worthy of all that we want.

Okay, perhaps I should substitute “I” instead of “we” in the preceding paragraph because sitting on the river banks among these beautiful trees, in the flow of this powerful river, it is the message I received.

While I have invited joy and ease into many aspects of my life, there’s another layer that is oh so ready to be released. What makes that realization easier to first admit, and then honor, is the knowing that like the small saplings around the base of an old tree, there is a new belief, a new knowing that is ready to take root and soar when it receives the abundance of attention once the old layer is released.

Take advantage of the potent energy growing as we move into the final quarter of this year of completion. What’s ready to release so the new knowing of prosperity and abundance can fully take root for you?
