Cue the music! Wave the banners! You’ve officially crossed the threshold and have stepped into a bright, shiny new year with endless possibilities before you! Add to this that all of humanity is striding into a “9” universal year (2+0+1+6 = 9) and…
…Wait a minute! Isn’t a “9” year about completion = endings, releasing, and all that icky-not-so-fun stuff? While these can be aspects of the energy of “completion,” there is another side of the equation that many overlook: the potential for allowing the completion—AKA FRUITION—of the dreams and visions you set into motion long ago!
Have you ever noticed how exciting it is to count down to an awesome vacation once you’ve put a date on the calendar and booked the flight, hotel, RV, ship, train, route, etc.? You don’t drag yourself kicking and screaming to the vacation that you set in motion, do you? No way!! You can’t wait to go, and just the thought alone adds immense joy to your now. And the best part of all? Even after the “completion” of a vacation, or any other dream, vision, or experience, there is always a new, bigger, more expansive adventure waiting in the wings, ready to call you forward!
Regardless of your spiritual or philosophical background, simply take a moment to observe any life form, and it becomes abundantly clear that moving forward to the next step/stage is the name and aim of the game of life. By allowing the GOOD that you set into motion to come to fruition—to let the RECEIVING part of the cycle happen—you harmonize with nature, life, the Universe and everything! So if you do subscribe to the game of numbers, why not focus on the aspect of 9 that truly can be sublime?
What visions are YOU ready to allow and see come to completion/fruition?
Thinking Like a Visionary
Anyone who has been alive for more than five minutes knows about the massive entity that is Walt Disney World Productions, yet few take the time to acknowledge that once upon a time, there was no Walt Disney anything. All that now exists began as a mere fraction of a thought that occurred to a kid who grew up delivering papers in the snow and who liked to sketch a few critters on a notepad! Rather than just do more of the same for the rest of his life, Walt was willing to let himself dream and consider what could be—and then allow his ideas to continue to inspire him. Even when one of his initial companies faced bankruptcy and the notion of success seemed no more than a fairy tale, he continued to allow his vision to call him forward and to act in ways that harmonized with it until he realized dream after dream. And those dreams still continue to evolve to this day!
How can you think more like a visionary and feed your dreams today?*
The Bottom Line on Allowing YOUR Success: Vision Fruition!
Regardless of the “numbers” in play or what the planets or zodiac charts are doing, life will forever continue to move forward and evolve. With each new year, season, or moment, we hold in our hands the opportunity to either flow with or to stand in opposition to the natural onward-upward-forward momentum of life, so could you imagine what this new year and life could be like if you decided to turn your gaze to the beauty that IS and to the delicious possibilities of what could be?
The journey always continues forward.
The call of life is forward.
Expansion is, was, and forever will be pointed forward.
What if this is the year you allow your visions to move forward into full fruition/completion, and then, from that new vantage point, you dream new dreams that call you forward again into amazing new adventures?
“Man has a dream and that’s the start
He follows his dream with mind and heart
And when it becomes a reality
It’s a dream come true for you and me
So there’s a great big, beautiful tomorrow
shining at the end of every day
There’s a great big, beautiful tomorrow,
just a dream away!”
—Richard and Robert Sherman for Walt Disney
