Today is the thirty-first day of the twelfth month and the final day of the year. Thirty-one is a number of manifesting new opportunities and tells us that new beginnings are at hand. Today marks a significant point of closure in a landmark year. The doubled twos in the year 2020 add up to four, which is a number of stability and solid foundations. This indicates that the changes that have come about this year have been to create stronger foundations on many levels. As we have had more time to go within, we have healed on deeper levels and gained a greater understanding of ourselves and our goals, dreams, and desires. In order to build the strong foundations, first the old, weak structures that were not serving us had to go so that we could rebuild a strong framework on solid footing. The changes we have experienced have transformed us and continue to do so. We have gained insight on what wasn’t working for us and are now ready to move ahead stronger than ever before, although the inner work still continues. 2020 also indicates 20/20 vision, and it is a year that has brought us greater clarity on many levels. It has caused us to look at things we needed to look at, unveiled what was hidden, and brought to our attention what we needed to see and become aware of. This year has brought greater awareness on many levels, and has shaken loose what needed to be released from our lives, both as individuals and as a collective. 

The changes we have experienced in 2020 have prepared us to enter 2021, which is a 5 year. Five is a number of change, choices, expansion, and growth. 2021 promises to bring about changes and shifts that create improvements in our lives. 2020 has created a foundation of support from which we can now move forward and in many ways, it has been a catalyst for better things to come. Because 2021 is also about choice, we are guided to tune into our intuition to feel whether or not choices are right for us and to seek our inner guidance when choosing anything in our lives, as one decision, no matter how seemingly small or inconsequential, can have a powerful impact on our lives. We are asked to remember that we are the masters of our domain, rulers of our own kingdom, in the sense that each one of us is the master of ourselves. When we claim our own sovereignty, it can look like reclaiming our choices and decisions, reclaiming our power by taking back the choices that are ours and taking ownership of our decisions. Sometimes it can mean drawing on the well of inner strength that we each have within us and standing tall and strong, standing up for ourselves, and speaking our truth with authenticity. It can mean making our voices heard and speaking up for ourselves or for what we know is right. It can also mean aligning with our highest path and purpose, our life purpose and soul mission for this lifetime. We are asked to remember that we can always call on our allies in spirit for their assistance when needed. Today, we are guided to tune into our higher guidance via meditation or sitting in quiet contemplation, as there may be important messages awaiting us.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us eleven, a gateway number. We are passing through from one phase into the next, as one cycle closes and another one begins. We are guided to take time for ourselves, to practice self-care, and to bring beauty and happiness into our lives, minds, and hearts. Decorating your space with flowers or in any way that uplifts you can bring about a positive shift in the energy around you and within you. As eleven also reduces to two, it indicates partnerships, cooperation, duality and oneness, harmony, balance, and co-creation. We may be guided to make certain important decisions and changes in our lifestyle, habits, and relationships so that we take ownership of our well-being and emotional health. As we stand on the brink of a brand new cycle, we are guided to remember that we create our own reality. Today is the perfect day to make a list of goals and desires that you want the universe to deliver into your life in the days, weeks, and months ahead. Getting clear now on the changes you want to make and the shifts you want to see in your life will benefit you. Giving these to the universe through the spoken or written word will establish the path for the year ahead, or for any time frame you designate. 

Mantra: I trust that I am supported in making the choices that are for my highest good. My connection to my intuition and higher guidance is always strengthening.
