As we get ready to wrap up yet another year, it’s that time when we start to reflect upon all the happenings we encountered during these 365 days. Reflection is an important component of every year, as we can bring to our awareness the mistakes we’ve made, the decisions we took and the lessons we’ve learned. All these aspects lead us to discover where we have been, where we are now and where we are going. Every year teaches us something.
As I look back to this 2019 year, attempting for my reflection with my journal in front of me and holding a pen, I find myself struggling to write. The truth is, this year has been very slow and quite honestly slightly confusing. It feels as though it’s been an uneventful year, yet so much has happened. And just like with all years, there are some important lessons 2019 brought in, so what are these?
The year of the number 3
From a numerology point of view, 2019 is a year 3. This number relates to emotions and breakthroughs. Sometimes, a slow pace allows us to discover and decipher every emotion we keep locked safe within our heart space. Whatever the reason for this, this year is here to help us release these. In order to feel emotionally free, we must let go of any blocked energies from our heart, so that we can feel open to love and to feel of course. During your reflection stage for this year, consider any emotional patterns you broke free from. What are some ways in which you released emotions and how do you feel? What were some feelings that you kept coming back to and what have you done to free yourself from these?
When we walk the journey of life, sometimes we feel a strong guidance from within knowing where our steps lead to. 2019 took us on different side streets and narrow alleyways to teach us to travel on those paths we have ignored and avoided previously. This can bring a sense of confusion and feeling lost, but as the famous saying goes “Not all who wonder are lost”. During these wondering and unexpected adventures, we might loose our sense of stability and grounding. The foundations we set for the next destination, might no longer seem so clear and somehow, through traveling into the unknown we eventually find our way back home. Detours are sometimes necessary in order to find our courage to continue to explore that urge from within, to know that no matter how lost we might feel, we will eventually come back on the right track. What are some detours this year led you to take? How have these helped you find your way back home, back on your life path?
