Life is the ultimate illusion. Even though everything around you seems very real in the moment of your experience, once you can learn to step back and see the bigger picture of what is taking place, you can gain even more knowledge and wisdom into the grander process of life. Everything and everyone is in your life for a reason.
Most often, that reason is to teach you about yourself. You can never learn too much about yourself, and the moment you feel that you have, the Universe will always show you something new. During this new Earth year, you will find that you are able quickly to gain more insights about your own personal learning and development process than ever before.
This is because in the new heightened dimensional space you now inhabit, you can more easily move yourself into that big picture view of life. You often hear the phrase, "everything happens for a reason." However, many times your anger, sadness or grief can prevent you from understanding any positive reasons that can manifest as a result of a difficult situation. Everything in life is there to assist you in some way, but if your negative emotions cloud your vision of the possibilities ahead, you can miss an opportunity for a deep and profound healing.
As you move into a new year of Earth time, it is always a good idea to take a personal inventory of what you have learned over the previous year. For many, 2012 has been about acknowledging the deep anger that has been suppressed from lifetime to lifetime. For others, 2012 has been a journey of reawakening and self-discovery. Whatever you experienced in 2012, try to make peace with it. By making peace with your experiences, they can become the driving force for the next steps in your life.
Even in the darkest moment, there is a seed of hope. Discover what that seed of hope is and use it to turn any tragedy into something positive. Every person on the Earth plane has a life purpose, and that life purpose is chosen by them to assist in the evolution of their soul's learning. Often, when you become overwhelmed by your personal experiences, it can be very difficult to discern what the purpose of something is. But, once you heal and make peace with the past, then you can see your experiences in a new light.
That is what seeing through the illusion means. It is about looking at your life from a new perspective; a perspective that is beyond the realm of your five senses, one that opens you up to see the entire world with loving detachment. Seeing through the illusion is not about coldness or ignorance, it is about shifting your vantage point to one of deep compassion. This deep compassion allow you to recognize that every soul in the world chose their experiences before they were born, and each soul will make the choices to walk through those experiences at different times in their life.
Other peoples' choices and experiences are not a reflection of you. They are what have been chosen by that individual to complete their life path. It is through your interactions with other individuals in your life that you will be able to complete your life path, finish your karmic debts and resolve your past life energy. However, when you are unable to see through the illusion, discovering your life path can be difficult and confusing.
So, as you enter this new Earth year, take some time and reflect on what you have experienced and accomplished, as well as what you would like to tackle next. Find out if you have any fears or negative emotions that are preventing you from seeing your life path clearly. Take the time to let go of your guilt, shame, sadness, anger and other emotions of the last year. You are not releasing the memories of your experiences, you are merely letting go of any unbeneficial aftereffects. Through this healing and release process, you are free to create your life from a completely new perspective, because you become able to see through the illusion.
