Here is the energetic theme for December 2016 channelled by the always wise and illuminating LENA STEVENS from The Power Path.com:
“This month is all about turning our focus away from anger, blame, self-judgment, hopelessness, frustration, fear and worry.
“These are all attitudes and emotions that belong to a lower vibration and they do not serve us at this time.
“We need to be turning ourselves in the direction of the higher vibration of COMPASSION if we are to be effective in our lives, with ourselves and with others.
“The definition of COMPASSION is: ‘Sympathetic consciousness of others’ (or personal) distress together with a desire to alleviate it.’
“COMPASSION is a state of being that helps us all remember that we are not separate, that we are all in this great game of life together and that going about it alone is not effective or rewarding.
“COMPASSION is best practiced from a neutral state of non-judgment and a perfect follow up from November’s theme of forgiveness.
“With everything that is going on out there in the world today, the best way to use your time and energy this month is to focus on yourself with COMPASSION for all the ways you have judged, blamed, suffered, and felt powerless and ineffective.
“If you truly want to ‘alleviate the distress’ on the planet, you need to start with yourself. All change begins at home. When was the last time you were truly kind to yourself? Not just rewards and gifts, but true kindness?
“KINDNESS is another theme this month that goes along with COMPASSION.
“It is easier to be kind when you have compassion and it is easy to be compassionate when you practice kindness. So they go along hand in hand.
“As the big wheel of evolution slowly turns away from the young soul, goal oriented, combative struggle where there are winners and losers, it is the masculine energy in each one of us that needs the most compassion, kindness and healing.
“We are emerging from a cycle of over 2000 years where the masculine standards of production, success, taking action, winning competitions and doing whatever it takes to get to the top have been our guiding principles.
“In this process the masculine in each one of us has taken a beating and needs a lot of kindness and compassion to heal its battle wounds.
“Many of us have turned away from our own masculine in reaction to the negative aspects we see being played out by the masculine out in the world. The masculine within is suffering and needs compassion and kindness, not judgment and rejection.
“Healing the masculine is a theme that begins for us this month and will continue into next year and probably into the next several years.
“As you reject the masculine and what it represents, you also reject the positive aspects of generosity, protection, boundaries, action, focus and appropriate will.
“These positive aspects of the masculine are necessary if we are to be effective in the world.
“So the work starts at home with yourself in healing your own masculine, your relationship with the masculine and reconnecting with all the positive aspects so you can be whole. If you are whole, it will be easier to be of service where and when needed.
“Remember that evolution only goes in one direction and that we are in the process of completing one cycle and transitioning into the next.
“Our task this month is to hold the bigger picture, to take the higher road of compassion, to practice kindness, and to do what we can to begin the process of healing the masculine beginning with ourselves.
How the month shows up:
“This month is all about helping yourself first. If you don’t have compassion and kindness for yourself, you cannot possibly practice it for others.
“So start with yourself this month. Review all the ways you have judged yourself for not being good enough, smart enough, known better, ineffective, not successful enough, not strong enough, not brave enough, not powerful enough, not perfect enough, not useful enough, the list goes on and on.
“How have you judged yourself for not showing up, for feeing fearful, for missing opportunities, for not getting your life together, for staying in bad situations for too long, for being weak, for being indecisive, for not setting good boundaries, for not protecting yourself or putting yourself first?
“This lack of compassion and kindness for yourself will keep you mired in this lower vibration especially if it includes blame, anger and resentment.
“This is the month to turn all of this around. There is much work to do on the self…So this is a month to focus on personal change through compassion and kindness and the healing of your own masculine…”
“After reviewing all the ways you believe to have let yourself down, focus on the changes you wish to make.
“You might start with a simple commitment to set better boundaries or to speak up around your own truth or to make a plan of action to improve your life.
“It is also very important that you practice being in a higher vibration as much as you can. Beauty, wonder, awe, love, and of course compassion and kindness will always lead you to a higher vibration and a higher centered experience.
“After all this is a higher centered time when we have the opportunity to experience the lowest of the low and the highest of the high. You decide.
“Relationships with others take a back seat to the relationship you have with yourself. ‘Me first’ is the motto this month.
“Of course your other relationships will all benefit from the work that you do on yourself.
“Relationships in general have been challenged lately and fraught with a lot of projection, blame and confusion. Larger scale issues are being worked out and relationships are taking the hit.
“It is important to remember that there is so much work going on now at a personal level that everyone needs a bit of space.
“Especially as we enter into the agreed upon social holiday time, don’t be afraid to say no and to limit your social interactions if you are needing time to yourself.
“Treat all your relationships with compassion and kindness. This month kindness will go a long way to keep relationships from unnecessarily imploding.
“Give people room to grow, to change, to heal, to express their truth and to be creative in their own way.
“There is a lot of energy right now for change and it will be affecting some relationships. Stay out of fear and judgment and allow change if that is where the wind is blowing.
HEALTH AND THE PHYSICAL BODY
“Compassion and Kindness, Compassion and Kindness, Compassion and Kindness.
“Our bodies have been through a lot and carried much for us. Mostly this month the body needs rest and rejuvenation. We don’t even know how exhausted we are.
“There has been so much work in the dreamtime collectively as our conscious personalities and bodies are ‘asleep’, that we don’t feel rested…”
“Health challenges this month could include fluctuations in energy levels with periods of great fatigue mixed with sleeplessness, physical agitation and restlessness.
“Knee and joint issues from the waist down are working out our masculine traits of moving forward and energetic mobility. Intermittent nausea and digestive issues are related to our will and the masculine energy of how we choose to show up in the world.
“Take care of yourselves this month. You only have one body this lifetime and it deserves your kindness, compassion and love.
“Being a very personally focused month, your personal environment is the most important thing on your ‘to do’ list.
“You will experience a sense of power and accomplishment and purpose in changing or improving or fixing what is in your power to do…When was the last time you took control of your personal environment, cleaned out the clutter and improved something that needing to be fixed?
“Pace yourself this month both in your expectations as well as your physical output of energy in all the doing and fixing and changing you are inspired to do. Allow yourself to be guided by the environment you are in.
“If it is snowing outside, stay warm indoors if that is what your body wants. If it is sunny and warm, go out for a walk. If it is rainy or windy, honor the environment in the ways that it can support your own process of change, cleansing, or letting go of something.
“Practice working intimately with the environment instead of against it. This goes for all aspects of ‘environment’: physical, emotional, political, psychological, intellectual, global, personal and collective.
“We are still in a highly creative period of time and although the creativity may seem to be very underground and hidden at this time, it may come out in the environment as weather anomalies, unexpected events, extreme temperatures and wild weather systems. Enjoy it!
“This is a good month to focus on the foundations of your business and projects.
“What was the inspiration behind your ideas, choices and action? Is there anything that needs to be revisited or changed or refined?
“Take and inventory of everything that is working and serving you best as well as what is not serving or needs to be changed or eliminated.
“This is about acknowledging what YOU need and how your personal business, partnerships and projects will serve YOU first. Is your life task being supported?
“As you inventory be careful not to judge or blame and remember that compassion and kindness goes a long way to healing what may not have been addressed that needs some clearing.
“It is a good month to tell the truth to others about what it truly important to you, and to tell the truth to yourself about what is not important to you that may be important to others.
“There is great support for working on details, sealing up energy leaks and setting good boundaries.
“There is a fine line between functional community involvement on a project, and a dysfunctional free for all with no boundaries. I am reminded of the various experiments of the late 60’s with the communes, free love, and the break-down of social and economic boundaries.
“We are in a similar time but with hopefully more maturity and spiritual consciousness. These are indeed interesting times and it should be inspiring to all of us to think about the possibilities of what we can collectively create for our future.”
