Get into the Flow

Year of the Water Dragon – Get into the Flow by Tai Chi Master Bruce Frantzis

Forgive others and forgive themselves. And if you know you did wrong or someone else did wrong, forget the blame and emotional energy, let go and just don’t repeat it. The Year of the Water Dragon is a special type of energy that only occurs every 60 years. It interesting that this falls during 2012, the supposed end of the world or the dawning of a new global spiritual awakening. In our times of increasing stress and pressure, distractions, information overload and rapid change, the Water Tradition methods are the cure. Keep this in mind this year – if something is not flowing or you are using force ask yourself, “How can I approach this differently to make it easy or just let it go?” More than ever find ways to take small actions, rather than just living in a dark mental soup that is the status quo for many. Think a bit less and act a bit more. You can analyze problems forever but analysis is not a solution it is only the beginning of a solution. When you begin with small things you’ll find that as the year grows and the decade grows you will be able to do more and more positive things. Part of this is to engage in meditation in whatever way you can so you can simply let go of what is stopping your creative potential. Small things can change the world, especially when done collectively. Ancient China’s celestial dragon represented the Emperor in power, strength, and good fortune. It is the ultimate auspicious symbol of success, wealth accumulation, and happiness. The dragon is known as bringing great luck to everyone but only if they applied focused effort as you would do in a personal practice. You might ask yourself what personal practice you will setup for yourself so that it is inevitable that you will achieve your goals this year. Powerful and unpredictable, you can trust the dragon’s intuitive nature that is of fearless, forward looking, great at analyzing situations and taking action. If we remember the qualities of water you’ll want to move forward not through force, but by constantly watching the flow and adjusting accordingly. This time can both be transformational for world events on a macro perspective and an important tipping point for the life of the individual, through an increase in perception. There are lots of positive energies for growth at work. Water dragon has enough courage to both face challenges, find and overcome weak points. Water calms the dragon sufficiently so he can project his energy positively, direct it sensibly, rather than recklessly and foolishly. Dragon years are connected to new beginnings, starting a business and finding happiness and good fortune. What one or two things can you focus on that once achieved could change your destiny? This year is also an exceptional time to resolve old issues. Make a list of any unfinished or unresolved issues and then take action to bring them to completion. Once you do this you will create space for the new. Then you can focus on building a strong, new inner foundation. The first part of this dragon year appear to be relatively uneventful. Best to use this time to prepare for the Spring, when the dragon influence will grow in you and you will be able to move forward with ease and grace. The early months are also an ideal time to become aware of your inner weak points then decide what actions you can take to move through them. For if you do, in the future it will greatly show you how to be resourceful and adaptable when faced with difficult external or internal challenges. Actions begun earlier in the year will grow into fruition the second half, with a steady flow of additions, corrections, and positive developments.

Happy New Year of the Water Dragon!

Water Dragon by Terah Kathryn Collins

According to the Chinese lunar calendar, the Water Dragon arrives on January 23rd bringing the Feng Shui principle “Everything is always changing” into full play. Although the Dragon’s natural element is Wood, 2012 is associated with the Water element, making this the Year of the Water Dragon. In the Chinese Five Element theory, Water nurtures Wood, fueling the Dragon’s already powerful strength and vitality. The Water element is associated with spirituality and Wood with intuition, promising to lift spiritual and intuitive veils and enhance your extra-sensory perceptions. Meditation and other practices that deepen your relationship with the Unseen world will go a long way in helping you remain calm, clear, and connected throughout this year’s profusion of inner and outer transformations.

If you haven’t already de-cluttered your material world and released excess possessions, now’s the time! The same cleansing and clearing process is also vital within your body, mind, and heart. Create space for the Dragon to land by attending to any stagnant areas in your life. This year’s gifts can only be fully received by the unencumbered. The lighter you are on all levels, the better.

The only mythical animal of the twelve in Chinese astrology, the Dragon is known for bringing Heaven to Earth and making dreams come true. “Watch what you wish for, ’cause you’re going to get it,” is a phrase to remember as synchronicities multiply, breathing life into whatever you pray and wish for. Visions you’ve been holding deep within your heart, such as experiencing loving community, lasting peace, spiritual illumination, and restoration of Mother Earth become potently activated and, like magic, could manifest ‘right before your eyes.’ And, the changes that accommodate such manifestations can occur in any size or shape, underlining the importance of cultivating your lightness of being and doing.

The magnanimous spirit of the Dragon is entwined with a practical, no-nonsense attitude that simply reveals what is so. This is no year for secrets of any kind. Truth will prevail as all that has been personally and collectively hidden is exposed to the light. This could make for some very interesting ‘plays’ in the Theater of Life.

With the growing, flowing attributes of Wood and Water leading the way this year, dreams could launch without a stable platform in place. Feng Shui observes that the qualities of the other three elements – Fire, Earth, and Metal – can balance Wood and Water and help you to birth your dreams into a healthy existence. Attend to the emotional well-being of the people in your life, taking the time to ‘tend the fire’ and create warm, harmonious relationships. Honor every step of the earthy physical processes that provide a firm foundation and keep you organized. Maintain mental clarity by thinking things through, forging creative collaborations, and refining your choices along the way. Taking all five elements into consideration can widen synchronistic pathways and help you be in the right place with the right people at the right time.

This is the year to turn-up the magic in your life and let it shine. Consider how you can weave more wonder into every day. Open yourself to the vast realms of inner guidance and outer communion with all ‘who’ surround you. Spend as much time as you can connecting with expansive natural settings and drinking in the elixir of Mother Nature’s ever-present majesty. Let the Dragon guide you in bridging Heaven and Earth in your life, then step through the portals of magic as they open, ready to be enchanted!
