Day 49: February 18
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love
In this month of love and honesty comes the beginning of a New Year in the Chinese calendar. It is the year of the Earth Dog and surprisingly it is noted as a year of growth and endurance rather than one of bliss and harmony. In the travels of time of one year will be the trials and triumphs in each step. The Dog shows up in the Chinese calendar every 12 years, the Earth Dog shows up cycling through the five elements once every 60 years, so the significance of this year when the element is considered makes this almost once in a life time event.
Today walk in the natural element of the Earth feeling its vibration speaking of any new beginnings emerging for you. Progress in your steps as if it were a walk of once in a lifetime and how you might move and flow with your steps in process. The qualities of the dog are loyalty, steadfast and community mindedness. Moving further into your walk consider what you are truly loyal to and why. Where do you hold firm and remain persistent? How do you unite and build those around you? In your steps, focus only on what you are doing; aim to come out of this walk knowing more of what you are capable of.
Remember this focus is about how you are, not how you are not. Should you find yourself considering otherwise, stop, sniff the climate you are creating and when you are ready for something better, follow the scent of what is true and honest. Be loyal to your greatness. I made this design with my daughter in mind, the Canine Kid… find the heart in your walk.
A suggestion to walk with:
On this 49th day…
Walk in the love of your loyalty. Realize the ways you are a true, steadfast companion to yourself and others. Count only the ways you are.
As it is the second month of the year, enjoy two opportunities… discovery and realization.
- Discover your Love capacity:
This month’s 28 days will focus on how we are loving the moments we are creating. Learning to be “in love” with our focus, it expands who we are beyond the partnered relational aspects and into the focus of loving what we offer the world, who we are in community, relating at a higher level to everything and everyone; and most significantly, elevating the relationship we have with ourselves. Prepare for a wonderful experience of exercising the power of love with the freedom of honesty to realize a greater look at possibilities and potential n a delightful way. Discover how capable you are!
2. Realize synchronous evidence:
Inspired by the variety of heart shaped labyrinths, this month capture your experiences with images of the heart. Be on the look out for where the synchronicity of the moments where your heart is in focus and then look around to see where you can find the shape of a heart in symbol. Your awareness will expand and you just might be surprised to find that when we look with an open heart, we can find it in reference near by. It does require a bit of imagination, though the findings are wonderfully worth it. Share all the heart shaped labyrinth images you find with images, links or comments and I will be happy to post the images and moments.
Care to Share and Share to Care!
