What is a Spiritual Year?
Believe it or not, only the calendar New Year begins on January 1st. Each year, the new spiritual energy starts moving in on September 1st and lasts through August 31st of the following year.
This is when the new school year starts and summer holidays come to a close. Summertime is when the energy winds down and many people are out enjoying the warm weather or taking much-needed vacations. In Europe, most shops close for the entire month of August to regroup and come back refreshed.
This fresh energy is very motivating and most people set new goals and aspirations of what they want to accomplish throughout the new spiritual year. Just think about it – when do you start planning new projects and feel as if you have a new lease on life? Is it during December or January after the holidays? Or is it when you feel the autumn (or spring if you are down-under) when the energy is alive with activity?
As you may know from following the Inner Expansion emails or blog posts, the spiritual energy on planet Earth changes on a yearly, monthly, weekly and daily basis. You are ahead of the curve when you know how this energy affects your personal, business and social life.
Throughout the year, everyone on the globe is learning to understand this energy. This helps you avoid the pitfalls where you (or your friends and associates) work against yourself by indulging in not-so-positive concepts. With our blog, you can relax and ride with it – every step of the way.
The Inner Expansion program has spiritual helpers of helpers who are sharing these insights with us. We pass them on to you during the year in our newsletter. Everyone can learn how to communicate directly with their own spiritual helpers or angels – to get their own answers to life. We can show you a simple technique to ask them direct questions and get immediate responses. Just go to our web site InnerExpansion.com for more information.
Review the Last Spiritual Year
What was the energy flowing through planet Earth during the last spiritual year (September 2010 through August 2011)?
Here are some key regrouping questions you can ask yourself. By answering these questions, you will be ready for what is coming next:
- What did I accomplish for myself in the last spiritual year?
- How loyal was I to myself?
- What did I learn about myself?
- What could I have done differently?
- What were my highlights?
- How did what I learn prepare me for the new spiritual year?
Plan Your New Spiritual Year
Now, what is the spiritual energy flowing through the planet from September 1, 2011 through August 31, 2012?
This energy is especially important because it will motivate you to accomplish what you have been planning over the last year. Because the energy of the last spiritual year was PREPARATION, you may have been going through a growth or transition period in your life. It prepared you for what is coming up this year.
This year is all about moving into action and not looking back. You may have developed personal, business or social systems that worked for you in the past, but need refining or refreshing now. Do not doubt yourself because you will have an opportunity to totally upgrade every aspect of your life – from top to bottom!
Here are three questions you can ask yourself to get ready for what is coming up:
- What is my main personal (and/or spiritual) direction and goals for the new spiritual year?
- What is my main business direction and goals for the new spiritual year?
- What is my main social direction and goals for the new spiritual year?
Hint: Write down specifically what you want to accomplish and why.
Personal (or spiritual goals) are what you want to learn personally for yourself, business goals are how you want to be more of service to people and social goals will reflect how you want to communicate better with your loved ones, friends and others.
How the Spiritual Gifts follow the Seasons
Throughout the year, the spiritual calendar relates to the four spiritual gifts and can be divided into the four seasons.
The prophetic gift takes over in the fall and is the big picture when everyone starts new projects with lots of creativity, inner devotion and passion. This is where you begin to manage and set the energy for each one of your goals and objectives by looking at all of the possibilities available to you. You will have an inner knowing that anything is possible – and if you are having fun – you will always be on the right track. It is important to focus on one project at a time so you do not get scattered or disorganized. This is a softer energy where your creativity transcends any doubts or limitations you may have allowing your full potential to come alive.
The clairvoyant gift kicks in during the winter when you need to invest more time organizing the vision of what you are doing so it will be much more successful. Efficiency is the key to staying focused during the holidays so you do not get side-tracked or slowed down by trying to make everything perfect. The balance of your communication plays an important role by keeping empathy from turning into sympathy. It can be an emotional time if you indulge in too many concepts that do not belong to you. This is a very high and cool energy – especially when your timing is consistent.
In the spring, your clairaudient gift helps you delve more into getting all of the facts: what, when, where and why. As a result, you will overcome any challenges so everything you are endeavoring to accomplish can become a reality. If you allowed yourself to get disorganized in the winter, it will take you three months (January-March) to get back into your real true feelings. Keep things simple with this smooth and direct energy without becoming overly aggressive. Your power is to make swift and practical decisions. Once you set your mind to it, your fulfillment comes from making it happen.
Finally, in the summer, this is when you bring out your feeling or healing gift more. Let yourself heal from the previous nine months of activity by regrouping your experience. Wind down and take that much-needed vacation or spend more time with the family if possible. Do not try to push yourself during this period – as you will find that it is a little bit like paddling upstream. It is a warm and bubbly energy that inspires everyone to be involved. The healing gift gets down to all of the fine details and makes sure that everything is in place. This is a time to open up, enjoy life and belong to something greater than yourself. This way you can relax and be ready to plan and start the new spiritual year in September.
Hint: You can learn the order of your own personal spiritual gifts of prophecy, clairvoyance, clairaudience and healing by ordering the Beginners Package for $37.50 USD, which includes a copy of Howard Wimer’s book called Inner Guidance and the Four Spiritual Gifts.
