Change is something we all fear yet it is all around us every day. We only have to look to nature to see that it is constant. The seasons go about their business quietly and calmly.
Observe a tree for one year… Every cycle it gives up everything it has and goes inside itself. It appears to be dead during the cold months of winter, there are no stirrings of life. Then spring hits and the sap begins to flow unseen by the naked eye however if you lay your hand on the tree you can sense a quickening. Before you know it the green buds appear and as if overnight the tree is in full bloom with flowers and leaves. Then the summer stage with the fruit of its growth and labour with the final stage the slow decay as it once again goes within.
Our lives mirror this cycle. There are times when we are at the top of the world and others when we feel as if the Universe has turned against us. The interesting thing is that this is a cycle but it may not be recognizable. With awareness of the twenty seven year Karmic wheel you will see how your life organically changes as you move through this wheel.
What is important here is to realize how you engaged in your life in each of these areas. As an example if you didn’t heal unresolved issues in the completion of your fist Karmic walk at age 27 then you could have dragged that with you into the next cycle. Or if between the ages of 15-18 you became unprincipled and ungoverned you could have built up a lot of patterns that require healing and so forth. When studying this wheel you slowly start to realize where you might have created maladaptive patterns in order to deal with the traumas of your life.
If I pay attention to where I am right now, in my 3rd Karmic cycle I am once again calibrating my Life Force. I made the tough decisions in my final year, healed what I believed needed to be healed and now it is time to regroup. However I am regrouping with a purpose and refuse to fall into self-pity because things have not gone my way, also staying clear of self-importance by not blaming anyone else and taking responsibility for my own choices.
Sure change is tough but it happens every day, either in small measure or overwhelming. We can’t fight it and sometimes the harder we hang on, the more misery we visit upon ourselves. The best we can do is negotiate change with a positive attitude, healing and hope…
