Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to Everyone and WELCOME TO 2012!

In 2012, we are beginning a new 5-year cycle. 2012 is a universal “5 year” (2+0+1+2 = 5) – a year of energy, change, travel and passion. A year of connecting with people in a social way and igniting one’s dreams into action. Hurray!

Five has a vibrant and active influence and hopefully we will find our lives to be more fluid and fun! With 5 as an energy vibration, we will have an increased sense of lightness and enthusiasm for changing what no longer suits us. A key question for any 5 year is, “What is your passion and how can you achieve it?” Ask yourself, what steps can you take today to seek what you love and what is important to you? Yes, 2012 should be a time to really making something happen. So…how will you do it? The lesson for many will be discipline…with so much to do, how will you commit to that one thing that can really make a difference?

This, of course, is just my 5 year two-cents in general. For how 2012 will impact you personally, consider checking with the numerologist or astrologer of your choice. Of course, I often have numerologists and astrologers do guest spots on my radio show. This month, for example, I’m having the astrologer Bill Attribe on January 9. Check him out here! Bill is a very well known astrologer who has been doing this work for over 30 years. Tune in and enjoy!

Along with continuing my radio show, this year I also will be traveling internationally and speaking at some wonderful conferences, including: “The Afterlife Conference” in March and the “Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. Conference” in November, both of which are in Virginia Beach. As always, visit my website to see if I’ll be coming to your neck of the woods. Other areas I plan to visit include: Mexico, Florida, California, Chez Republic, Canada, Tucson, Portland, Seattle and, as always, many parts of New England.

Of course, I am well aware that for many of us, January can be a very difficult month, as we crash from the holidays with raised expectations and have to face the pressures of our New Year’s resolutions. I know this experience can be even more intense if this is your first full year following the loss of a loved one. Especially if you are in that situation, rather than putting undo pressure on yourself, why not give yourself an after-year gift of doing something you’ve wanted to do that is fun? Take a water painting class, for example. Or, if you are feeling adventurous, learn how to snow board. Or . . . go sledding or tobogganing. Whatever! Even if it’s your 50th, 60th, 70th, 80th or 90th etc. year on the planet, you might just surprise yourself by seeing how much fun a new adventure can be. I’ve recently read that surfing for the 50’s folks is on the rise. That should appeal to those of you in warmer climates, or to those who can get away to the warmer areas! In any case, whatever you decide, make it simple. Often, less is more. To avoid frustration, set goals that are truly reachable, and then go for it!

I think we can all agree that one good thing about the end of the holiday season is the end (for now) of all the TV advertisements for gifts that most of us don’t need or have the money for. If you received money as a holiday gift this year, consider doing something personal, like getting a massage or a pedicure, or visit your favorite medium and touch base!

Given all the talk about the end of the Mayan Calendar, we will all be interested in seeing how things actually play out in 2012. Meanwhile, let’s not worry about it but instead focus on living life to the fullest, and remembering to play a little, or even a lot! We are meant to experience joy!

Here’s to another year of connecting, sharing, and meeting many of you for the first (or thirty-first!) time. Sending my best wishes of love and peace to all of you!
