Are you ready to embrace change? Again?

The end of the Year of the Dragon and beginning of the Year of the Snake is a potent time for transition and renewal. Just as the Snake sheds its skin, you are being called to release any excess layers that are no longer vital to your well-being so you can take your next step in bringing your gifts to the world around you.

The Dragon’s natural home is Heaven. This expansive realm sparks us to travel to new levels of awareness, inspires and guides us to set off on uncharted paths. Here we’ve been able to dream what is possible in our world and in our lives.

Now in the Year of the Snake, we come down to Earth, bringing our focus to make those visions real. Picture the intense energy and intention a snake has right before it strikes. Then sharpen your own commitment to go for what you want.

As Qigong master teacher and author Dr. Roger Jahnke says so eloquently in his blog on Year of the Snake, “it could be said that whatever any one or any group nourished with psychic and emotional energy last year, would now have the potential in this year to transform into the solid, real, practical and applied — the manifestation!”

As Jean-Luc Picard used to say on Star Trek: “Make It So!”
