I am so blessed to have witnessed this great day, even while at home in my living room. It's a day that heralds a new beginning for all the world. Even in the subtle ways this president has conducted himself over the past year, and especially in the past two months, I have confidence the people of the world will perceive the integrity and high ideals put forth by Barack Obama's person, words and actions, and rise to meet the moment with changes in consciousness of like kind. This is my prayer.

This is a time to believe in our highest ideals and act accordingly.

We are One in Spirit. All of us. Everyone.

2009 - Year of Discovery

Personally, I'm declaring 2009 to be a Year of Discovery, although a lot of words capture the essence of this point in time for me: Beauty, Attunement, Patience, Refinement, Focus, Cooperation, Discipline, Fun, Friendship and Consideration. It's "year 2" in my current 9-year cycle. This year I will continue assimilating the new attitudes and understanding I embraced in 2008 with regards to having awareness of my vibration and where I'm putting my focus. In all situations and circumstances, I will strive to see good (rather than fault), beauty (without needing to fix anything), and the perfectness of what I have (rather than noticing lack). In 2009, I will continue to enjoy discovery of all things new, beautiful and interesting, and will continue my commitment to live life as a grand adventure. I'll relax, develop my skills & talent, be receptive to others, enjoy my relationships with friends (old and new) and family, take things slowly, and keep the big picture in mind as I navigate through the year. Thanks for being a part of my world. May your life and mine be blessed in all ways in 2009. May your business and mine thrive on all levels in 2009. May the world and all living things know the peace that surpasses understanding.
