Endings and Beginnings - The New Year Ahead

Happy New Year fellow travellers

Another year has come to an end, and as with all endings, so comes a new beginning. This is the time of year for re-evaluating what we want in our lives, letting go of the old and setting our intentions for the new energy which we want to come into our lives.

For many of us, this has been a difficult year. Some of you may be feeling the heavy energy of a chaotic world. Remember to keep in mind that even the seeming chaos is in divine order and serves a purpose. Sometimes things need to fall apart before they can be rebuilt into something better.

Every struggle is just another lesson, and may in fact have been created by our higher selves as an opportunity for our souls to grow. Of course, when we are in the middle of those lessons, we may just want to tell the universe to give us a break and let us breathe. If you are feeling this kind of pressure, that is probably exactly what you need.

Take the time out of your day to sit in the silence, to breathe and reconnect with that inner self that knows just what you need. It is important to take care of ourselves in the midst of trying to care for everyone else. Even just a few minutes of quiet meditation can help us to rebalance ourselves. It gives us the strength to meet our challenges with a peaceful mind and a loving heart, instead of being weighed down by fear and stress. This is essential in lifting the vibration of the planet which, as spiritual warriors, is part of what we have come here to do.

The year 2018 is a number 11 year in numerology. This is a master number and is a powerful time for manifesting great change and growth. It also deals with the number 2 (as 1+1=2) which is representative of relationships and partnerships of all kinds. You might see opportunities for growth in this area on a grand scale, people coming together and working to create something positive and meaningful.

To find out what kind of energy 2018 will bring to you, you will need to calculate your personal year. You can do this by adding the year to your birth month and day. (example: for an August 24th birthday, you would add the numbers 8 + 2+4 + 2+0+1+8 = 25 = 2+5 = 7, giving you a 7 Personal Year.)

If you are interested in what these numbers will mean for you in your personal life, here is a quick overview:

Personal Year 1 : This is a year of new beginnings and fresh starts. It’s a great time to start something new and explore your individuality. Take advantage of this energy to make the changes in your life that you have been contemplating. Last year was a time of endings and letting things go. Now the way is clear for you to forge ahead into new horizons. Be confident, take charge, and get out in the world. This is a time of independence and fresh energy. You may find it difficult to compromise this year. Try new things, make new goals, and explore your interests. This year is all about you.

Personal Year 2 : This is a year for slowing down and reassessing. After all of last year’s impulsive energy, it’s time to re-evaluate and decide what changes you want to integrate into your life. Things may seem to be moving slowly for you, but try not to get frustrated. Patience is key. There is progress behind the seeming standstill. It is a time for slow growth. It is not the time for pushing forward to get your own way. You will accomplish much more with cooperation and tact. Work on balancing your life and your relationships. Cultivate your friendships. Be helpful, but try not to become a martyr to others. Maintain balance while you plan. This year could bring the possibility of a new partnership, or the deepening of an existing relationship.

Personal Year 3 : This could be a very creative year if you take advantage of the energy coming into your life now. It’s a good time to shake things up and get out of a rut. It’s time to lighten up and have some fun. Travel, go to plays, socialize, entertain. Try a new look, get inspired. If you’ve been itching to pick up a paintbrush, now is the time to do it. This year favors all kinds of creative endeavors. You may feel that you don’t get much done this year, but you may not really care. This is a year for optimism. Take up a new hobby. Draw, paint, play music, write stories. Give yourself time to daydream. Try not to make any important decisions at this time unless you are very sure. Be flexible and be careful of gossip. This is a year for exploring your creativity, so take advantage of this creative time as next year will be time to bring all those dreams into reality.

Personal Year 4 : This is a year of hard work and planning. You may have felt that you lacked direction for much of last year, but now is the time to settle in and get organized. It’s a great time for taking care of projects you’ve been putting off and building for the future. Buy a house, start a savings account, go to school. Don’t worry if you are feeling more serious-minded this year. It is just another step in your development and things will lighten up next year. Now is the time to build a foundation, make plans and work towards them. Keep your promises and stick to a budget. Take care of your health and think things through. This year may feel like a struggle and bring a lot of challenges, but if you take responsibility and do the work, you’ll end up with a feeling of accomplishment as the seeds you plant and cultivate this year begin to grow.

Personal Year 5 : This year could bring many changes. It’s now the time of action. After the responsibilities of last year, you may be feeling restless and restricted, but now you should begin to feel things open up as all that hard work pays off. Don’t be afraid to take risks. This is a year for surprises and lucky breaks. However, try not to make any impulsive decisions. Get out in public and promote yourself. This is a great year for networking. You have an energy and enthusiasm that people will be drawn to. Try not to make any promises at this time as you may find them hard to keep. Visualize success and manifest what you want. This year brings with it a new energy and you may encounter an opportunity for a new job.

Personal Year 6 : This year is a good time to think of others and give back to the community. You may find yourself very aware of your obligations and responsibilities this year. Your family and home life may take up a lot of your time and thoughts. Depending on your nature, this year may feel like somewhat of a struggle as you are asked to put others ahead of yourself. It is a year of commitment. It’s a good year for settling down, having a child, building a home. Marriage may be a theme this year. It’s a great time for planting a garden, learning to cook, volunteering for a local charity. This is a time to recognize in gratitude the blessings we have received and to begin to give back to the world with generosity. This will be a year of growth and maturity and a time to embrace forgiveness.

Personal Year 7 : This is a year for self-reflection. Look back on your progress, re-evaluate and decide what is working for you and what is not. Develop your skills and talents. If you are feeling worn out, this might be a sign that some rebalancing is necessary. This may be a time to reconnect with your spirituality. It is a good time for study and meditation. Go on a retreat. Therapy may be beneficial. Use this time to reassess what you value. Be patient and accept that this is a time for moving slowly. Recognize what needs to be cleared out of your life and make a list of new goals. Be mindful of your thoughts and careful that a tendency towards self-analysis does not turn into self-criticism. This is a time for going within, as the caterpillar goes into its chrysalis stage of development before emerging as a butterfly.

Personal Year 8 : This is a year for ambition and achievement. If you have done the work, this could be a year of great fulfillment. You may feel like taking on new challenges. Have faith in your own strength and intuition. Money may be a theme this year. It’s a good time to make investments, buy property, and cash in on what is owed to you. This year may usher in a period of success for you. You may be feeling more confident and sure of yourself and your place in the world. Try to keep a positive mindset and consider any problems that may arise as opportunities. You may be putting more energy into your career and could notice growth in this area or be offered a promotion. This is a year to realize how much progress you’ve made and how much you have grown. Avoid dwelling on past mistakes and instead look to the future. The energy of this year supports your success and you can be sure that any abundance that comes to you now has been well-earned.

Personal Year 9 : This is the final year in the cycle and signifies completion. This is a time for letting go of the old, tying up loose ends, severing ties with people who do not support your journey. Clean out your closets and put your house in order. This is a year of preparation. Next year will bring with it a new energy and now is the time for you to clear the way for that new energy to come into your life. This could feel like a difficult year for you. You may struggle with endings or perceived loss, but just keep in mind that this is all a necessary process in your growth and something better is waiting for you just around the corner. It is best not to fight the energy, but instead let things go with grace. It’s also a great time to rid yourself of past habits or thoughts that have been limiting to you. You might find yourself traveling long distances. This is not the time to hold onto past grievances or pettiness. Embrace forgiveness, both of yourself and others. Prepare the way for the exciting new changes that are waiting to come into your life.


I hope this has been able to provide some perspective and insight for all of you. The turning of the year can be an exciting time. It would be good for us all to take some time and reflect on all the past year has brought us. Light a candle, meditate on all the lessons this past year has brought into your life. Then release those things which no longer serve you and turn your attention to the future. What do you hope this new year will bring? It’s time to set your intentions now and use the energy of the new year wisely in order to manifest the life you want.

Don't ever Underestimate the 'Power of You'

Dear Fellow Travelers,

I’m aware that many of you felt disappointed in 2012, when you believed that nothing happened. However, that was the opening of the Great Portal of Change for our world and the momentum has been building ever since. I know that you may have expected to wake up to peace the next morning, but whenever great change comes, there needs to be a period where the old is gradually swept aside as the new is born.

It’s easy to look at the chaos in the world and think “What’s happening?” The energy of chaos is putting up a good fight, not only in our country but in our world. In this respect, it’s understandable to experience feelings of powerlessness when faced with forces that are fighting to maintain their position of long-held superiority. And, especially when we do so at the cost of feeding our own silent fears.

The reality is that each of you is more powerful than you can at present imagine. So I am here to help you remember. This is part of the change. It’s time for you to wake up and stand confidently in your power, while using it wisely. In this respect, it’s important to also remember that when you band together in groups for a common good, you square the energy; where four of you have the power of sixteen. This will help to speed up the changes that you want to see.

Never underestimate what you are capable of whenever you set your intentions in alignment with Love. You are created of the same energy as that of the Creator. Our whole world is too. But you are also capable of thinking and acting consciously where you are here to bring in the Light.

Some of you are like the town criers. You are alert to the troubled areas. This is an important role. It helps those around you to know where to direct their energy. The challenge is to see the darkness, but not give it any of your energy and to help others guard against it. However, I appreciate that it’s not easy to fight those issues that need to be fought, such as poverty and bigotry, without judging; and sometimes hating those who are seemingly standing in their ignorance or greed.

When I was raising my children, I used to tell them that I did not like certain behavior, but it didn’t mean that I did not love them. I just wanted the bad behavior to stop. Some of our world leaders are acting just like little children; or worse. It almost seems like they keep doing more and more outrageous things, so that we will get as angry as they are. When you catch yourself reacting in this way, make a conscious effort to stay centered.

Remember who you are and take charge of your emotional energy and where you direct it. Focus on their behavior while seeing it for what it is and visualize the change that you feel needs to happen. For example, Waging war for greed has got to stop. See this happening, rather than wasting your power on ranting at the perpetrators. This is not helpful and only slows down the process of change that you want to see.

I cannot tell you often enough how powerful you are. Your words, your thoughts and your feelings create. It doesn’t matter whether you believe it or not. It is cosmic law, very much like the law of gravity. You may be the most kind-hearted person in your world, but if you choose to fill your emotions with fear and anger, then you are helping to create and perpetuate the chaos that upsets you. So don’t do it!

Think of your forehead holding a giant beam of Light. Whatever you give excessive attention to, then this is what you will create. Be vigilant about what you are creating while always choosing to align yourself with the energy of Love; and be patient!

Change doesn’t happen overnight. We have been warlike for much of our history, going back to times BC. So, it’s like a giant ship at sea. It has to be turned slowly after going in a straight line for so long. This is what’s happening now, and you can feel it if you try. When I see all of the amazing children being born into our world right now, I know for sure that change is already happening. Be a part of bringing about this change for your children and your grandchildren.

Expand your Love, Expand your Light. You are so much more capable and powerful than you know. Help to turn the ship of life in a new direction. We are all on board and so every little helps. Be the change that you want to see. I am here to keep reminding you of this at every opportunity, and I am more than happy to do so.

I prayed a long time before writing this blog. It was my intention to tell you about my new book. But, as often happens, Spirit had another message in mind.

So, please, let me share my utter happiness with you. My book is out. I am so excited, I’m like a kid on Christmas morning. It took me three years to write and it has undergone a lot of fine tuning. I hope you will find it helpful on your journey. I wrote it from my heart to your heart.
As I read the back cover, I realize that this blog is right on point. So I want to share what I have written about the book:

‘I can confidently tell you that you are stronger, more resourceful and much more powerful than you give yourself credit for. There is a light within you which burns brightly, even though you have done such a great job of hiding it so well. You just need someone to help you find it, so that you can reconnect with the Universal Force; which constantly seeks to guide you back onto the path of enduring happiness and inner peace.

Prayer is a wonderful way to achieve this, and so, along with my advice, I have chosen to share with you my own special way of reaching out to a higher power. One that will strive to lift your spirits if only you have the will to manifest this. My aim, if you allow me to, is to show you how to regain control of your life and to fix the seemingly unfixable. There is nothing that you cannot achieve if you but just set your mind to it. Find that Force. Be that Light. Use this book to rise above your challenges, dramas and your apparent limitations. Be happy and feel loved. You absolutely do deserve it. The Divine Creative Force wants nothing else other than for you, as its precious creation, to be this way.’

My book, ‘Find the Force Be the Light’ has now been published in both hardback and eBook format. The hardback and Kindle are available from Amazon, where eReader versions are on sale at the Kobo and Barnes & Noble web sites. If you would like an autographed copy of the hardback then please email me with your details, or simply Paypal $25 for the book plus shipping. Your support is much appreciated.

If you feel that you could use some help in dealing with any kind of issues that may be coming up for you then please get in touch. If I can help you on your spiritual journey in any way, I am available to you in phone consults 30 or 60 min on 828-252-7573. Or if you prefer you can contact me by email at

Reader’s comments :

Mary, thank you so much for sending me your new book. I love it - it is a very clever concept and I intend to read every sentence. You have touched my heart - the first two days I sat down to read the book, I just started crying (good crying).

Mary, your book is precious—not to be read cover to cover—and that is it— it is truly a treasure—to be enjoyed slowly and savored.

Chaos and Uncertainty - How do we deal with them?

Hi Fellow Traveler,

There is a Chinese curse,

"May you be born in interesting times."

It certainly seems that we have hit the jackpot. Things are not dull, by any stretch of the imagination. I remember being in Astrology class when I was 18 years old. It was 1961 and I had been studying astrology for a couple of years, but when I had reached that age I began to take it seriously and studied with an excellent astrologer.

We were sitting in class trying to speculate what the Age of Aquarius was going to be like. We were looking at the ideal of Aquarius, the part that wants everything to be fair and equal. Everyone was ignoring the disruptive aspect, the part that says I don’t care what happens to people. We had all been raised in the Age of Pisces where people took care of other people. Families stayed close and everyone knew their neighbors. The isolation that some people experience in the Aquarian Age was unable to be imagined at that time.

As we speculated, all that we could foresee were developments. Nuclear medicine would find help for people. Cancer would no longer be a death sentence; some people would survive it. Technology was going to rule. People would suffer more from emotional illness than physical. Uranus rules Aquarius and Uranus also rules the internet, but the internet wasn’t even a dream in the early sixties. When we learned about computers, they took up an entire room and spit their data out of cards with holes in them.

Aquarius promises to rip down everything to establish -

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind's true liberation

[ Lyrics of the Age of Aquarius from Hair ]

In the Tarot deck there is a card called The Tower. It shows a castle tower being struck by lightning. The tower bricks are falling, people are falling from the windows. The interpretation is; everything will fall apart, but what comes after is harmonious. That’s about where we are at in the world now.

There seems to be a lot of disruption and disharmony. Fear is definitely present in the hearts of many. No matter which side of the political fence you are on, its clear that this time things are very different, chaotic even. Many of you are finding yourself very aware of this energy.

On Dec 21, 2012 a huge energetic change occurred. I know many of you felt that nothing happened, but what did actually happen took place on the inner and not the outer. If you look back on your life from that point in time, note the changes. Now you are more sensitive to the energetic energy of the Earth. You feel the energy of anger, fear and hope which surrounds us. Between television and social media it's difficult not to know what is going on. There is no more time to bury your heard in the sand.

What can we do?

The answer is, we can do a lot. Each of you will be attracted to issues that call to you. Answer the call. Find out who your representatives are and let them hear your voice. Call, send postcards. Forget internet petitions, they are the least effective way. If you are concerned about your fellow man, see where you can help. Sometimes just a smile and a kind word will lift the vibration. We are all in this together.

As the great Parliamentarian Edmond Burke once said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Find what you can do and try to do something every day. Don’t forget spiritual energy is powerful, so don’t neglect doing spiritual things as well as physical things.
