Merlin – Wisdom, Teacher
Time for a new mentor or teacher to come in. Share your wisdom and use it to teach others. Pay close attention to repetitive thoughts as they are divine insights.
New year, new insights. Are you ready for a realization? Because it's time to have one! One of the mantras that Elliott and I live by is "smarter, not harder." That energy is going to dominate this month of January as you find innovative and manageable ways to make things a bit better for yourself. If you've been fighting energy in an area of your life, you'll be able to connect with spiritual guidance that will allow you to find your way out of fight and into flow. Particularly when it comes to emotions, you are reminded that emotions can be fuel if you are processing them instead of sitting in them. Spirit shows someone rowing a boat against the tide versus someone joyfully surfing a wave. You may not have known you were rowing against the tide until you accepted that things weren't working the way you wanted or needed them to. And therein lies the tweak that allows things to transform: stop fighting yourself, and start finding a new flow.
This is a month of one, of new beginnings and starting anew. This energy will have you feeling like you are finding yourself back at the start, and while the last couple of months may have had you strongly resisting that, this month you will embrace it and allow it to work for you. Spiritually this may mean reconnecting with tools and re-experiencing things reminiscent of your early days, perhaps your first spiritual awakening. Think back to when you first "found yourself." Remember all the joy that ultimately sprung from all that soul searching and effort? That is the light at the end of the tunnel. That new joy is ready to manifest for you again in 2022.
Merlin is a character in my story who has a lot of wisdom but can yet be a man of few words. You are reminded that pearls of wisdom come from knowing what to share, when to share it, with whom, and why. You may find you're drawn to do some work on your crown, solar plexus, and throat chakras. Spirit shows me someone going to catch a train only to find that the train has gone off the tracks. Instead of getting upset at the train being derailed, they sit to the side and meditate. They are then led to other valuable uses of their time while they wait for the necessary repairs on the train to take place. It's not where they want to be but it's where they need to be. This isn't a month of big changes but rather slight adjustments that lead to a realignment that has you feeling more like yourself again. This month will be a balance of surrender and acceptance which leads to motivation and clarity. Spirit says to give yourself some credit. You are reminded that you are a spark of the divine; therefore you have all that divine wisdom within you, always available to you. You are worthy of seeking it, receiving it, and living it.
A term Spirit shared with me recently was "soul weary." Many of us are feeling soul weary from third dimensional living right now. This is why Spirit says this is a good month to get back to the basics. Reconnect with your faith, get back into seeing through the eyes of your higher self, and rediscover what brings you joy.
On the first of every month, I pull a card from my Faye Oracle Cards, which feature characters from my book, A Tale of Faye. I share what the card and character represent, as well as any additional insights my guides bring through so that you can be aware of the energy and make the most of the month. I also share any energy themes as I feel guided.
