January 2023: A Thought for the year ahead

As we enter the New Year, fresh hopes, opportunities, possibilities lies ahead for each of us. It is how we approach each day that makes a year great, or I should say, makes a great year.

So, in the upcoming days, weeks and months, I am suggesting that you reflect this thought, perhaps jotting them down somewhere for easy access, and then reciting them out aloud each day.  “I will approach all my days this year with hope and joy. I will try my best to see the good in everything and everyone.   I am responsible for my own happiness, and I endeavour to do so.  I choose gratitude over complaining, and peace over worry. “

Now, if you have just read the paragraph above, or better still, if you did as it suggested and owned the words as your own truth or wishes, then, I can assure you that you are already on route to a great year ahead!

I wish you Wellnessology, and success in all you do this year. May your days be ecstatic with hope.  And each week filled to bursting with amazing testimonials, so that by the time the year comes to an end, you will be able to join me in the  resounding joy-filled acclamation – “2023 has been a fabulous year for me!”

December, bring for us the Christmas Story, a baby boy is born to the Virgin Mary in a stable in the little Town of Bethlehem. And though this is a story told for centuries over, yet each year, the meaning seems fresh with hope for people across the globe. For in the Christmas Story the baby Jesus represents God’s love gift to humanity. LIFE’s gift of forgiveness, the promise of a home above, and on earth the hope of peace, and goodwill to all.

A Prayer for December 

God of all months, days, and times
To Thee we ascribe thanks and praise for this and all our days past and to come. 
As we enjoy the festivities, gifts, and celebrations around this season of cheer, and whist we are very grateful, we are also mindful that there are those who are lonely, sad, broken, hungry, facing hardships and  sufferings in various ways; for these we pay strength and hope, love, deliverance, provision, and peace. 
We give thanks that it is so, and so it is. Amen and amen.

Welcome November 2022!

November 11th Month on the Gregorian Calendar, is second to last month of the year. It is the last month of fall in the Northern Hemisphere, also the last of the four months with 30days. On the Romulus Calendar 750BC it was the ninth month, then named  ‘novem’ which in Latin means nine.  Topaz and Citrine are colours associated with this month.

Metaphysically November acts as season for us to re-evaluate and refocus, so that we might best realign ourselves. The number 11 represents intuition, and a higher level of consciousness as well and the end of a fall cycle, wherein, we can raise our inner vibrations, re-discover, and re-energize ourselves, to meet our best potentialities.

OCTOBER: Special Days, Holidays, and International Awareness Days

October, wetter cooler days and nights, yet a time we get to once again behold the beautiful fall of  multi-coloured  autumn leaves on the ground.

October tenth month of the year, comes from an old Latin word Octo which literally translates eight, was the eight month in the old Calendar of Romulus c..750 B C. It was also called Winterfylleth by the Saxons, meaning fullness of winter, as it sets us up in preparation for the colder, darker months ahead.

Colours associated with October are opal and tourmaline.

Metaphysically October is a time for spirit soul body balance, to set a higher, more conscious intention, on how we wish to show up and express on the planet, and within the sphere of our day to day experiences.

"Like the warmth of the  August Sunshine Eve 

May the Light and  Glow of lovely thoughts  

Linger and reside in hearts all day." ~ Lady Dawnecia Palmer

There is something about August that raises hope,  and generates a sense of fun and celebration; perhaps it is because we are heading towards  the last days of expected sunny days as the year rolls over to the darker cooler season.

August, illustrious, hallowed, distinguished eminent, respected, venerable are some descriptive meaning for the word august, also used as title for Roman Emperors.

August so named by the Emperor Augustus. He decide to name the month after himself.
