Universal Years: 2017 and 2018
2017, was a 1 Universal Year and the beginning of a nine year cycle. This fact encouraged me to reflect on the energy of my own Personal Years. Questions like: Am I on track? What is coming next year? How did I fare this year? How had my own book helped with my fitness journey? How will the next set of cycles be different from the last?
From my first reading from numerologist Shay (her Facebook page) in 2010, to my latest reading (blog post update), I continued to be excited about this new insight. I was on track, from the withdrawing I had done in my 7 Personal Year (2011), to the big time letting go in 2013- a 9 Personal Year- my life was beginning to make sense. (Note in 2013, my husband and I sold/gave almost everything we owned and moved to Hawaii.) This review also helped me feel less nuts AND propelled me into an amplified spiritual and personal growth like no other.
Now, let’s look at what that means for the Universal Year and how that can help and support us. Maybe help us feel even less nuts. With 2017 giving us an opportunity to start new things and explore our own uniqueness, what will 2018 bring? Adding 2, 0, 1 and the 8 gives us an 11, this is exciting in its self, and I will get to it but, first- lets add the 11 = 1+1= 2. (Some numerologist would keep it an eleven)
The energy of “2” is an interesting one. It brings with it a message of sensitivity, both as a warning and as a gift
The Universal energy of 2018 is to be patient and receptive as the seeds you planted in the 2017 are germinating. Patient and receptive are good definitions of ‘sensitive’. We can become overwhelmed when too much is coming our way. Trusting that you (and the rest of the world) will attend to only what matters, is so important. Basically, the only thing that does matter is how you feel about yourself. Let me repeat that, the only thing that matters is: how you feel about yourself.
his is where we need to transform the tendency to be ‘overly sensitive’ to using the sensitive ability to tune into what
makes us happy. What twirls your skirt? What makes your heart sing? What work
do you like to do?
Notice the challenges listed above: argumentative and pushy. These are attributes that come up when we do not honor what is best for us or we think we know what is best for others. Like oxygen in an airplane- apply what YOU need first, then help others. (Warning: Only help when asked and only if you love the task!) If you feel yourself being argumentative ask yourself why and ask if it is a good use of your energy. If you are not a lawyer, is it even necessary? Do you enjoy how it feels or is it draining? Do you need to win arguments? To what end?
Are you pushy? Now, if you are in sales you might feel this is required. I loath 'car sales' approach, they cant let you leave until they get the sale- I can feel the desperation on almost all of them. Just recently I was doing one on one with a job coach to see if I wanted to hire her, she actually said, “If you don’t do this, if you don’t invest this money in yourself right now, then you really don’t believe in what you are doing so you should just quit.” When I questioned her about this approach to sales she said, “Do you even know who I am and what I do and how many 6 figure clients I have?” Oh, boy! How many people continue to use these tactics and they think they are helping people? Does it feel good to them? Is being successful so important that you need to chastise and be mean to people? The decision to be a pushy and aggressive person- it is solely yours. How you feel about yourself and how you run your business/life and make money is totally up to you too.
This year, it is important to understand the power of attraction vs. action. Think: attraction. What does this mean to you? While you are running around like a chicken with your head cut off because you have so much to do, you are attracting other people with their heads cut off. AND when someone calm, cool and collected enters your presents you think they are insane, lazy or they ‘just don’t get it’. What would you like to attract? Be THAT. Or start noticing and appreciating people you would like to emulate.
Keep an open mind with this new approach. As a person who used to have 3 jobs, and never worked less than 30 hours a week even when I went to college full time, I am here to tell you there is a much more interesting way. Expect 2018 will bring you opportunities to work with others- the energy of 2 is about partnerships. Also expect new fun projects that makes your heart expand- but again, expect them, do not force or try to create (this is so last year- ha!) them.
Wait and watch in 2018.
Patience is a tough one, a virtue- arrg! You’ll want to be doing, you can. Do small things but the waiting… how do we change that energy? We do not want the Universe to think we want to cast our dreams into the future. Abraham Hicks calls it ‘getting ready to be ready’. Instead of waiting try to meditate, look for ways to enjoy yourself more in both work and play and ask the question, “If I was a millionaire, what would I do in this situation?” You might need to ask yourself different questions. Referring to your numerology will be helpful, getting a reading, and or look at the questions below.
Next year, 2019, has a 3 energy– creative expression, it will be a time to be brave and share some of those ideas you have or record your experience in some way. The world will be learning what came of the seeds that were planted in 2017. We will start seeing what was created. What have you created?
Here is the fun part, set the tone, plant some seeds, see some hints in 2018 and then the beautiful garden we created in 2019.
Take some time to reflect:
¨ What seeds have you planted?
¨ What will you do to support yourself while you are quietly waiting and watching in the 2018
2 Universal Year?
¨ What are looking forward to blossoming in 2019?
¨ Where else is a 2 in your chart? Pinnacles? Life Cycles? Challenges?
I will hit on the energy of the 11 in my next post. 2018 does add up to an 11. The eleven is a slightly different energy then that of the 2, one that some of you are ready for.
Love and Light,
