In the back of my 2015 day planner, there was a piece written by Anne Ortelee that stuck with me all year long, and it went a lil' something like this...
"2015 is an '8 year', a year of manifestation and complete progress in the world. It is a year of mastery, when we look back on our lives and understand the training and accomplishments that have led us here and now. We use this year to culminate the past 8 years and set forward the vision for the next nine years. It is considered a harvesting year."
The Year Of Mastery was indeed a year of mastery, but not in the way I'd hoped.
It really took me to task in terms of my entire physical reality, including everything from my financial life to the state of my health & home.
By the last couple of months- I was no longer dreaming & scheming (as I'm so prone to do); I was hanging on for dear life!
This year forced me to stay present to what is and to respond (as mindfully as possible) to one obstacle after the next.
It definitely sharpened my resolve, strengthened my character & created mastery in terms of my ability to respond to whatever The Universe decides to throw my way.
It brought me to a place of spiritual maturity, which I will be talking more about in January.
ResponseAbility = The Ability To Respond
So there. That's what I mastered in 2015. That's what I learned on the deepest, most personal level...
I am able to respond.
I am willing to respond.
And- come to find out- I am HAPPY to respond to life each day, fully present to whatever comes my way with a spirit of adventure & a willingness to grow.
And that, my magickal friends, has made me feel more kickass than ever!
2015 was an interesting year professionally too- mainly because that part of my life was all kinds of good times...
The Facebook challenges that I did on theme were an amazing way to connect with my tribe & I KNOW for a fact that many awesome friendships were formed that way. So yay!
Witchy Vlogmas was a total blast, which prompted me to include more vlogs in my 2016 plans, and I got a HUGE kick out of playing around with food on Instagram. So there will definitely be more of that!
I only interview people who thrill & inspire me, so I was honored by every single interview that I did this year. Still- a few stand out in my mind as being extra epic and those would include Laurie Cabot, Jeremy Crow, and Kim Huggens.
And here's a list of what you all seemed to get the biggest kick out of...
