'As this year draws to a close - been reflecting on the year as a hermit. We go in cycles and this year was a 7 year for me. I Craved solitude, gentleness and peace - which is not unusual, but somehow it felt magnified by a million. Every thing outside my space felt harsh and I was seriously thinking I may have developed a phobia!
We all need solitude at some points in our life. I think that's when you become comfortable with you. All else drops away. Lot's of learning, searching and integration of self. A veiling of mind,body and soul as such.
A hermit year allows you to just be. However the brain/ mind can be the greater adversary- thinking , warring within -reminding you to go forth and be a part of the human race, yet the lone wolf has other ideas .
Yes ,a strange mixed year indeed.
I found this encaustic art that I did at the start of the year today. It was placed in a book - I wrote on the back :
As we see this year out and welcome 2016 , consider doing your personal year numerology to see what the new year has in store.
It's nice to know the coming energies that you will most probably be starting to feel anyway.
