A shift just occurred and if you embrace it you will be able to align with and utilize the energy of mother earth as she moves through springs doorway. Whether you see this shift as metaphorical or metaphysical matters not, as it is you that is driving the bus. The actions you take now and your willingness to step through available doorways will effect the kind of year, perhaps life that you will have.
There are a few things that are important to know about doorways and how to find them as they are not all alike. Let's look at a couple of examples. Some are really closed but they feel so familiar we try to force them open and this does not go well. Even if we get in we will realize perhaps too late that we have been here before and left for a good reason.
Some are open yet so unfamiliar that we either walk by them or take a quick peak and say that this cannot be for us. This may actually be an opportunity that needs to be more fully explored. We see things through the filters of our previous experience and it involves dropping those filters to embrace something new and different.
Are you wondering what holds this mechanism in place? We limit things through our analytical mind or intellect which is how most of us have been trained to process information. This only gives us a limited sense of what is available to us based on our old story. This story is held in place by a need to keep ourselves safe and this need insures that we are living a fear based life. A fear based life prefers closed doors and is wary of those that are unfamiliar to us.
So how do I move past this old story and begin to create something new? Start with a strong intention to enter the next doorway in a different way. My teacher "Ten Bears" Bart Anderson taught me to enter new gateways with these words to guide me. "I am nothing, I know nothing". So, open your heart, feel what your gut tells you and leave your intellect outside the door. Who knows you may just create something different this time around!
