Have Your True Desires Been Squashed?

sunflowerI’ve been inundated by emails exhorting me to make plans for 2015!  Hey, I’ve hardly even drawn breathe from 2014 yet, but I MUST apparently go out and attack that marketplace, get in first and claim my territory.  Or get started on my weight loss, find my perfect partner and buy a new car.  Lordy, I feel exhausted at the very idea of it!

I was sitting on my verandah this morning feeling tiny tendrils of cool breeze caressing my skin amidst the warm humid air.  I felt like I was being tickled by angels, and I probably was!  That was more fun that creating a task list!

I know this post is tight on the heels of the Full Moon post, but there is something I wanted to share with you.  It’s another activation to the emotional realm, so I thought you might like to have a heads up.

I’ve noticed that over the past few weeks, some people are feeling great, others are feeling terrible, and a lot of people are ossilating between the two, with great amplitude!

This week might feel like an emotional meltdown but it has a purpose – to bring you back to your true desires.

This is a continuation of the Root Centre to Solar Plexus Centre thing I talked about yesterday – that old pressure to survive by sucking in your stomach and pretending nothing’s wrong.  As in – No, I’m NOT having an emotional meltdown I always breathe like this and my eyes often water entirely of their own accord. 

The Solar Plexus Centre is all about fire.  The element fire, which is all about illumination and spirit, and expressing your power through actions aligned with your very highest qualities.





For the next 6 days, Mars is transiting in the Gate of Illumination (30). This is the home of fire in the Human Design chart.

It also relates to our genetic hunger for emotional experiences that give us an opportunity to grow.

Until 9th January, Mercury and Venus will be creating a channel with Mars; they are both sitting in the Gate of Decrease (40).  Because of the planets involved, this may feel very personal.

It could feel like a confused and messy meltdown.  Please don’t panic.

This is an opportunity to recover personal power you gave up to authority figures as a child.  It’s distilled into lack and disappointment that blinds us to possibilities, even when possibility is knocking on our front door.

All the places where your emotions were squashed and moulded beyond recognition are coming unstuck, and for good reason.

Most importantly, your brilliance is returning.  Pay close attention to your personal desires, what do you really WANT?  And what do you need to let go of?  The Gate of Decrease is about letting go of what no longer serves our higher purpose.

Watch what you are spending your time on.  Does it empower you?  Or soothe you in your disempowerment? Are you taking action that feels good to you?  Even if it’s just walking outside and watching the sunset? The things we cling to shape our lives, so choose carefully over the next few days.

This is not a time of truth and clarity as many would consider it, but it is a week of powerful recovery of your light and your true soul desires.  They are fundamental to your purpose in this life. There is a different kind of truth and clarity in that.

What’s returning for you?

  1. So relieved to read your comments about the beginning of the year. I felt so upbeat at first (like something old and heavy was being left behind) and then really slumped into old emotional patterns and wondered what on earth was going on. may be we should say ‘what in the heavens’ is going on… it was not easy keeping on track but things shifted yesterday and a new surge of energy to move forward is manifesting. Watching out now for gate 60 energy! Thanks so much Kim for your posts… they truly are enlightening and helpful as we wade our way through the old quagmire to the sunlight…

    Seeing your candle held by hands I was reminded of the beautiful work of a friend Susan Zalkind who carves the most beautiful candle holders out of alabaster. the light shines through them and shows up the beauty hidden in the stone. they are truly amazing and she a truly beautiful being. thought you might like to see them here: http://www.candleholderart.com/

    much love and blessings to you and yours in this wonderful new year…

  2. Its so true, and i think you could be right, i have been dealing with the inner core coming up in my life all the way back to childhood. Wow, i am not alone in this understanding. I knew it i just knew it. Thanks for clarifying the whole thing..

  3. Wow, my passion for singing came back.. which i gave up as a teenager because i didnt get the feedback i needed to hear. So i gave it all up and started smoking. Been a Non-stop smoker untill 2013, a full year of not smoking. in 2014 i started again with a lot of regret..still doing it today. I know i waste my time on it.. i doubt my willpower. Discoverd human design since 3 days now which explains a lot in my knowledge but im missing the specific details i guess.
    As a manifestor generator 1/3 single definition. Root- spleen- sacral and throat defined. Not sure if I can be a singer.. considering my solar is open, so is my G center (have many “halfway”lines coming out of the G center gates).. I’m still trying to find the answers..
