I had the privilege of studying with a Mayan elder at what is believed by many cultures to be the Time of the Great Turning. It is believed by the Maya that December 21, 2012 marked the end of one cycle and paradigm “Time is Money”, as well as the beginning of a new cycle and paradigm, the theme of which is “Time is Art”. As such, I encourage my clients to connect to the forms of creativity and artistic expression that call to them. This time is about tending to our creative nature to support what it is that we are manifesting in our reality.
As a creative inspiration for a new beginning I would like to share this blessing by John O’Donohue called “For a New Beginning”. John O’Donohue helped to inspire the naming of my healing practice, New Life Rhythm.
“In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has already been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.
For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.
It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.
Then the delight when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.
Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life’s desire.
Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.”
