2012 Forecast For January and Wisdom Tips The January 2012 forecast can not only empower you with wisdom, it can help you relieve stress and feel more balanced this month and in the rest of 2012. Get ready for 2012. We’re entering a year of unprecedented opportunities for conscious evolution and transformation. But we need to choose wisely. The main theme for the January 2012 forecast is Destabilization. The secondary attributes are Interruption and Disruption. In the first month of 2012, you will experience a movement and destabilization that will feel initially like everything is out of balance. Think of how it would feel if you were standing on solid ground and suddenly the horizon tipped or the earth moved slightly. Those of you who have experienced an earthquake may be somewhat familiar with that feeling. What happens is that the instinctive center opens up, releasing all of your survival information all at once in order to give you access to what might be useful to navigate the situation. When the instinctive center opens up, it may cause temporary anxiety and a sensation of danger. It can also bring up old fears that have long been buried. There could also be an adrenalin rush or a sense of physical discomfort where relaxation seems impossible. Reactions could also include a loss of appetite or unconscious binge eating. It is an upset due to what has seemed stable being turned sideways. Destabilization can show up in many aspects of your life and we would like to point out that the purpose of it is positive in the end. Your experience of this month will be directly related to how you accept, navigate and allow for the disruption. You will have an opportunity to move yourself from one experience into another through the rip in the fabric of your own stability that the disruption has caused. Here are some examples of what we are talking about: Suppose you had a job with a company you thought was very stable and you had a plan for your future that was based on this stability. If suddenly you found out that the company was closing and you were going to be out of a job, you would feel destabilized and stress. The stable fabric of your life and your plans for the future would rip apart. The image here would be that rather than trying to sew up or mend the rip, you would go through the opening or portal that it has created in order to see what is on the other side. Working with destabilization proactively takes courage and a certain trust that everything happens for a reason and that there is always opportunity on the other side. Beware of falling into Martyrdom and stress around what happens and use these events as messages to move forward. January 1-8, 2012 Forecast: A time of preparation. The currents are changing but still sufficiently deep that they are not yet affecting what is on the surface. There are deep rumblings underground and in the subconscious of the collective that are also not yet felt on the surface but that are setting us up for a destabilized time. Get your ducks in a row. Have strong intentions but be flexible. Take the stance of a martial artist whose stability and power depends on their ability to move with the energy rather than against it. If you have an intuition about something about to change that requires some action from you, don’t wait to take action or make a decision. Do it now. Take control over your life rather than allow stress to control you. This 2012 forecast will help you to become more aware and prepare yourself. Some of you may experience something intruding on your stability right from the beginning. Use it as a template to position yourself to be ready to dance. If you are feeling stuck and stagnant or stress at this time, do some of the practices to move your energy forward. Be proactive. You have the power to dissipate stress.
