Before butterflies become, they are in a “cocoon-like” state called chrysalis. During this phase, to the naked eye, it really doesn’t look like anything is happening. However, while in this state, the butterfly’s colors and wings are being created. Much is happening.

For we humans, we can feel like we’re cocooning at times as well. These are called times of contraction, which are different from periods of expansion with lots of activity and flow. Like summer and winter, our energy can do a dance between these two states, like yin and yang, movement and seeming stasis. This is good and necessary. It is not possible to be “on” all of the time, nor is it logical to assume that just because we are exuding much energy and effort in a specific direction that things will simply work out, in a snap. Sometimes we’re just in a period of contraction and pulling our energy inward.

This especially happens in winter, and now, during Covid. This contracting time is an ideal time to go within and become creative. Create, meditate and decide what is next for you. This is your time for abundant introspection. Turn your attention towards planting those seeds for what’s to come.

This can be a fruitful endeavor if you allow it to be. Ask yourself: What type of career do I want to create? What kind of partner would I like to attract? Do I need to make more time for fitness and a healthier lifestyle? Make it fun! Collaborate with friends, research, and dream it up!

When we release control, go within and allow the rhythm of life to be our co-creator for success, there is no limit to what we can manifest in our lives.

As we slide into this historic new year, many of us are ready for renewal and positive change.

These chilly winter months are a great time to reflect, plant those seeds of change, give them nourishment and allow them to bloom in their time. Go inward to discover your soul’s calling in this moment. What’s next for you?

“New growth. New hair. New body. New man…” a friend said to me yesterday. Well, there’s that.

But seriously, take a dive within and see where it leads you. Contemplate how you’ve evolved and adjusted over these past 12 months in order to decide how you’d like to move forward. Revised attention might be required for your physical, emotional and mental bodies based upon your experiences of the past year. This is so specific to each one of us, as unique individuals, do take your time through this process.

Are your relationships the ones you want?

Are health and fitness in a good place for you?

Are you as calm in the face of chaos as you once were?

Before answering these questions or ones like them, begin with meditation, mindfulness and stillness. Moving meditations are beneficial, too. If you’re kinesthetic, this form may be quite effective for you. Through this process of meditation and asking yourself pertinent questions, you can set goals that are much more fulfilling for your life’s journey, as opposed to the same ol’ new year’s resolutions which may not fuel you at this time.

As human beings, we are constantly recycling old thoughts and common themes in our heads. But, when we activate the deepest parts of ourselves through the inner quiet and space which meditation provides, we illumine the truth of our soul in the present moment which leads us to living a more authentic life that’s beneficial for all.
