Sunday Morning Coffee Musings: 2022 and Relationships

2022 comes with UNCONDITIONAL LOVE and Repairing or Strengthening Relationships. Relationships of all kinds will play a vital role this year in your life. Pay attention to the lessons you learn. Some will shape you, push you forward, and change you for the better (no matter what it may seem like at the time). Just don’t let anything distract you from your dreams and goals this year. It may have been all about you the past few years but, this year it’s about you and others. Play well with others. Disconnect from some and love at a distance and “with the love of the Lord” with others.

Make people feel loved and appreciated. Encourage as many people as you can. Show up when you can. Make phone calls. Send a thank you text with some detail (Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to xyz). Let it be known that you value your employees, friends, family, coworkers, strangers. “I appreciate everything that you do for me. I am so glad to have you as my cousin.” Lend a hand and donate to charity. Cook a meal for someone. Send flowers or fresh fruit. (ACTION).

Oh…family dynamics. You must deal with it. Once and for all and get on with it. If they want to hold on to it let them. You let go and remember, love from a distance if need be. Move around it. On the flip, strengthen those family bonds that you do have. Quality time with loved ones and friends are in order.

You may think this one is a no brainer when it comes to your child or children but, put down the phone or tablet and LOOK at your children’s faces when they are talking to you and when you are talking to them. Maybe the pandemic has made being glued to screens worse. I don’t know but, I do know it is important to LOOK into the eyes of the ones you love, especially your children and give them your undivided attention. They need to be seen and heard. Especially, with the instability of navigating our world.

You will meet NEW PEOPLE IF you want to that can have an interest in what you are doing or that may have connections for you. This is why I say once again, pay attention to the people that cross your path. But also pay attention to the classes or opportunities that come your way this year. Maybe there is someone at that event or in that class you can make a meaningful connection with. Yes, these events can be online as well. God works in mysterious ZOOM ways, too. I’d highly recommend being INTENTIONAL about where you go and whom you spend your time with this year.

2022 A “6” Energy

This is the year of a 6 energy. What can we expect from a 6 energy? The number 6 is about several things and I’d like to start by talking about one of the Biblical concepts that it is the number of man (man was created on the 6th day). The 6 energy is about WORK and personal RESPONSIBILITY. This is not the time to be distracted, side tracked, or to be pussy footing around. If you want it, go get it. Work for it. Put in work. This is your time to give it all you’ve got. Man has to work by the sweat of his or her brow and this is sweat equity time. NOTE: That can come in any form.

You can expect to REBUILD in 2022 on top of the foundation laid in 2021. Because of what we have been through, you may want to include rebuilding with reinforcements. If you are thinking business, entrepreneurship, influencer, you may want to think big and be ready to WORK and take RESPONSIBILITY for doing the research and implementing the necessary steps to get it done. THIS IS AN ACTION ORIENTED YEAR. The ACTION coming from YOU and that will create a ripple effect so be careful what you put out there.

I am happy to report the 6 energy is about UNCONDITIONAL LOVE and Repairing or Strengthening Relationships. Relationships of all kinds will play a vital role this year in your life. Pay attention to the lessons you learn. Some will shape you, push you forward, and change you for the better (no matter what it may seem like at the time). Just don’t let anything distract you from your dreams and goals this year. It may have been all about you the past few years but, this year it’s about you and others. Play well with others. Disconnect from some and love at a distance and “with the love of the Lord” with others.

Make people feel loved and appreciated. Encourage as many people as you can. Show up when you can. Make phone calls. Send a thank you text with some detail (Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to xyz). Let it be known that you value your employees, friends, family, coworkers, strangers. “I appreciate everything that you do for me. I am so glad to have you as my cousin.” Lend a hand and donate to charity. Cook a meal for someone. Send flowers or fresh fruit. (ACTION).

6 is about FAMILY. Oh…family dynamics. You must deal with it. Once and for all and get on with it. If they want to hold on to it let them. You let go and remember, love from a distance if need be. Move around it. On the flip, strengthen those family bonds that you do have. Quality time with loved ones and friends are in order.

You will meet NEW PEOPLE IF you want to that can have an interest in what you are doing or that may have connections for you. This is why I say once again, pay attention to the people that cross your path. But also pay attention to the classes or opportunities that come your way this year. Maybe there is someone at that event or in that class you can make a meaningful connection with. Yes, these events can be online as well. God works in mysterious ZOOM ways, too. I’d highly recommend being INTENTIONAL about where you go and whom you spend your time with this year.

This year is going to balance out. There is going to be some wobbling on the scales because that is how scales are in the natural. (First the natural and then the spiritual). You don’t just sit things on a scale and it doesn’t move back and forth. It has to find its equilibrium. You will have to find your footing several times this year. This year is about EQUILIBRIUM. So, while you are putting in WORK put in as much effort in the PLAY arena. Seek balance. Seek peace.

Speaking of peace, UNITY is in order. If there is any way possible, be the peacemaker, the peacekeeper. Be all about unity this year. WE NEED IT in our country and all across the world. Do it in small ways or big ways. Remember, change starts with you. There’s a heavy pressure in the “community area” of our lives for unity that moves beyond your gated community or neighborhood.

Now, there are some downsides to this energy but, I think you can handle it. You still need and will always need…BOUNDARIES. In this “work hard, be compassionate” era you need to have boundaries in order to have balance, maintain sanity, and safety. Guard your heart (emotions/mind) because out of it flows the rivers of life (everything you do flows from it).

Watch yourself as to not become DOMINATE in your WORK, thoughts, ideas and ideals. Yes, you may be coming from a GOOD place but, everyone will not be ready or agree. You are not here to beat them over the head or to force your love or agenda. Some can become so determined that it becomes dominance and that leads to destroying things and people in your path to get what you want.

There are going to be some little things that you can’t let take over your thoughts this year. You can’t let the small snags hold you down. Rip and keep going or rest. But never give up.

There are going to be some BIG EARTH-SHAKING things going on in the world and possibly in our own personal worlds but, we have been through so much in the last two years, and in our lives (for those of us 30 and up I know), we will find our footing, stabilize, and move forward.

Some justice will be served this year. Some long-time coming things will happen. If you have sown some seeds several years ago there may be some harvest popping up. SEED, TIME, and HARVEST. Harvest comes every year. “As long as the earth endures, seedtime (seed, time) and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease. -Genesis.

I wish you well this year. Protect your health. Eat better and rebuild your immune system with good, healthy food and exercise. Be blessed. Be well. Be good.

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings: How It Started

I was looking forward to New Year’s Eve for several reasons but, the main reason was I finally, wouldn’t be spending it alone. After a pretty good day that joyous mood would be crushed by him. Some sort of mix up, misunderstanding, miscommunication. WHATEVER. I tried to smooth things over for him so that he wouldn’t feel bad by saying it was okay and offering a solution. The problem with that is Ioncw again put my feelings to the side. Did anyone care that I was I feeling bad? Did I care?

I did not want to be disappointed and I tried to work with it and I tried to work against it. But the TRUTH continued to be magnified with signs such as no communication during a pivotal time frame, an ignored text and phone call, and the polite, “Happy New Year” text he sent. That’s it. That is the gist of it. The TRUTH amplified in the form of anxiety and I was unable to rest even with medication.

This was NOT how I wanted to spend New Year’s Eve. This was NOT how I wanted to wake up on New Year’s Day with lingering sadness and an uneasiness in my spirit. I did not want to spend the day trying to be alright. I did not want to spend the day trying to unravel and get to the core of things so I could be alright. I knew exactly what was happening. I know this is my personal year of 9 and the ending of a 9-year cycle. This is more about endings than it is about beginnings. However, the beginnings, though few, are monarch.

This year is centered around the heart. Before you can connect to the heart, you need a heart cleansing. If not, the connection will not be clean. It will be shoddy. It will be static. It will be on and off. There I was Saturday trying to connect to heart meditation without a cleansing. “Create in me a clean heart and renew in me a right spirit” is a scripture from the Bible. This is similar to a heart chakra cleanse. Growing up Christian this scripture usually was used when sin was talked about or an evil spirit. I can’t help but to think how that only scratches the surface.

The heart can be filled with sadness, anger, disappointment, anxiety, worry, depression, confusion and the remnants of these things or debris of the past. The wrong spirit could be any of those things. It is not necessarily that of evil or sin. So, as the heart is “CLEANsed” the renewing of the spirit takes place. The alignment of spirit takes place. I also believe you have to participate in your healing. There is work involved.

What did I have to do to get to an understanding and to align my spirit? I certainly couldn’t rush the process. I wanted to feel better. QUICKLY. SO, I wanted to skip the heart cleanse and just connect to heart happy. No. 1 hour and 11 minutes into a heart chakra cleanse and typing this I “felt” some clearing. My heart space felt a little lighter. I felt some strength and some HELP coming on. Cleansing the heart can be praying, listening to the RIGHT kind of music, binaural beats, journaling, therapy, chatting with a friend, crying, laughing, etc. This is the creating of a clean heart and the refreshing of spirit. The uplifting or alignment of spirit. The conjunction “AND” means they work together.

Above is one of the frequencies of music I play low in the background as I go about my morning or day. Sometimes I lay down and listen for 20 minutes. I also pray for help and this is the guidance “I” was given. In the words of Mary, the mother of Jesus, “Do what he tells YOU to do.” Your activity may look different from mine and that is okay.

Day 11 of Day 12 of My Life Journey: Lessons and Reflections

If you think about all that you have been through, you might become overwhelmed. You may begin to feel sorry for yourself. BUT if you think about ALL that you have OVERCAME, you might feel a sense of gratitude, strength, compassion for yourself, thankfulness. You may begin to realize just how much POWER you have within.

Merry Christmas from Nikki

I want to wish you a HEARTFELT Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I appreciate anyone that takes the time out to read my blog or to read period. I hope to keep bringing light to my corner of the world wide web with a few changes in the New Year. Until then, remain blessed and bless others in any way you can.

Day 2 of Day 12 of My 2021 Journey: Lessons and Reflections

  • Too much going on in your life can cause a stagnation in creativity. My flow was “damned” up by things happening around me and directly to me. Most of the year I was uninspired.
  • A salt body scrub (lemon, mint, or peppermint) can help you wash away physical connections. A good chakra cleanse or rinse continues the purging of a person and help you break all ties. It can help you get rid of the remnants. Christians have a hard time understanding this but, it’s like fasting or eating certain things to help the body purge. Basically, we are energy and the heart is energy, the mind is energy, etc. When Christians say they felt it in their “spirit” or in the “belly” it’s an energy. You can feel good and negative energy. I don’t care what your religion is.
  • Whomever my twin flame, soul mate is, I know I am loved deeply and eternally.
  • 28 days no contact with a person is a detox. You can jumpstart your healing this way.
  • Keep making room for the RIGHT person until you no longer have to make room for them. In other words, when they show up you won’t have to make room for them. They will fit and you can grow together. Sometimes, at different rates. Oh, well. It’s never going to be perfect but, it darn sure has no resemblance of hell or purgatory.

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings: Before You Take Off…

Hopefully, you are preparing for the New Year so that you will be ready to take off. You can’t possibly get ready in January for January. If the party starts at 7:30 P.M. you cannot leave your house at 7:30 P.M. and arrive at 7:30 P.M. Well, as you may have been reflecting on this year in October, contemplating your journey for 2022 in November, and now mapping things out in December (eh…no pressure because it’s okay to start whenever you start! And please do not rush these things), wherever you are in this process I want you to think about something before you take off.

Friday before the storm my daughter and I were sitting on the porch enjoying the highly unusually warm weather. As I was gazing out, suddenly a hawk came within feet of the porch flying into the neighbor’s tree. I shouted, “WHOA! Did you see that?!!” She didn’t. She had her head in a book. It was either the Cooper’s hawk we encountered in the summer or a Redtail hawk. I couldn’t tell which one because of its swiftness causing a bit of a blur. I did, however, do some research later. It’s not every day you encounter hawks.

One thing stood out in my research that seemed relevant to me and could seem relevant to you. As you map out your plans, have you mapped out your message? Is it the same message you’ve had for years? And if so, have you considered the perspective of others that are not like you and if your message is inclusive? Has your message been divisive? Does it have negative, party and political undertones? Has it been all about your massive opinions? Could it be rooted in fear and false information? Is it doom and gloom?

The earth, the spiritual realm, is moving towards a different direction. The direction is of hope, repair, and healing. How are you assisting? Are you insisting on adding salt to wounds and ripping open sewn up wounds? Or is your message cloaked in truth but, really underneath it’s pushing your own selfish agenda? I hope you will assist with the hope, healing, and repair the world so desperately needs. If not, I hope your message is drowned out by those that are seeking higher ground.
