We are well positioned for a good start and a clean break from what has preceded us in our life’s journey of awakening. “Awakening” is what it’s all about for 2018, and the number 1 of January beckons us to tap into our courageous initiative spirit, and forge a visionary path of liberation from the rote and mundane.
Sound like a tall order? Doesn’t have to be, because the “Force is with You” on this one, as the Angelic realm is lining up its support to all who care to call upon them. The number 11 of 2018 (2+0+1+8= 11) resonates with the ethereal realm, and now more than ever there is an ability to “link up” and be carried forward on a jet stream of electrical energy.
In the science of Yogic Numerology, we have an advantage. That advantage can be activated through practices which resonate with the numerical “Light Body” of the month or year. For January, we need to consider our Soul, and what direction and experience we would like to have this year.
Have you ever heard the expression, “going against the grain”? In this year, and especially this January, if you try and force yourself to go against the grain of what you instinctively and intuitively know to be best, life will become very painful.
Whether it is pressure from an emotional pattern or from a relationship you are in, don’t “sell your Soul,” or the result will feel like a porcupine quill that digs in deeper and deeper as time wears on. There are people who literally can’t breathe properly because of the constriction created by another person’s psychic pressure.
Let’s break free from this tendency straight-away, and use our numerical/yogic advantage to gain the high ground of awareness. Practice the following pranayam--as Yogi Bhajan said, “It will give you a strength which you never had before.”
Now that we’ve got some real rocket fuel to work with, let’s look at options for creating a new space in our lives. Number 1 is the balance of the Head and the Heart.
Yogi Bhajan said, “When the head is involved the heart must decide, and when the heart is involved the head must decide.”
It is this conscious and creative balance that must be maintained throughout the year, and January sets the trend. Because the 11 of 2018 is such a powerhouse, coupled with the intensity of Gift number 9 (2+0+1+8=9), it will be difficult to stop a negative momentum once it goes too far.
The key is, don’t let it go too far. Catch it at the onset and not the aftermath. To help clarify, let me give you an example to wrap your brain around. Let’s say you are the parent of an 8 year old boy, and just across the street a new family moves into the neighborhood. The new family has a 12 year old boy, and both children become friends overnight.
The new kid on the block comes over one day to invite your son to jump on the trampoline in their backyard, and as soon as you hear the word “trampoline,” the hair on the back of your neck stands on end. This is your intuition telling you, “There’s no way my 8 year old can do the same trampoline tricks as an experienced 12 year old, this could end badly.”
You’re right, it could, and here’s how to navigate the situation. Let your child know he can go over and play, with trusted adult supervision, which is you or a reliable parent. Explain to him the reason for this, and I personally would go online and find pictures/stories of kids who accepted a dare, and ended up on the wrong side of the equation.
Use your head, use your heart, and communicate what needs to be said. Have the courage to speak your truth, and create clear boundaries for everyone’s well-being.
Teach your children how to intuit a situation and not get lured into something that is over their head. Give them the vocabulary to push back against injustice.
In the words of Maya Angelou, “You shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands;you need to be able to throw something back.”
As we embark on the fantastic journey of 2018, know that the good and right opportunities are there for you. All that’s required is the clarity of vision to recognize the higher path, and the fortitude and flexibility to shift the flow of your projective psyche when challenged.
Kundalini Yoga is a self-initiated practice, and now is the time to give yourself the loft, lightness, and lyric of your own life’s creative essence in tune with the creativity of the Universe.
You’ve got this one, it’s all yours, and the Heavens are cheering you on with every step taken on the high road of your Soul’s journey homeward. Sat Nam.
