We made it! We made it to 2021!
What an accomplishment to celebrate. Congratulations!
I picture St. Hildegard holding her abbess staff. So strong and powerful. She radiates as she speaks, “God created me… God is also my strength… Through God, I have living spirit. Through God I have life and movement. Through God I learn, I find my path…”
Picture yourself holding a staff, strong and powerful. Take a moment and consider what created your staff in 2020? How did you find the strength and power to persevere in 2020?
Was it your spirit guides who you called upon?
The love and support of your family and friends?
Your time spent in nature?
Or time spent in meditation?
Let’s offer gratitude for each and every gift that nourished us in 2020 so that we could arrive in 2021 on this beautiful planet Earth. What a treasure that we’ve been given to be able to continue our work in a new year!

And now we begin this adventure in January of a new year! As we enter into 2021, I remember that this past week was Epiphany, or Three Kings’ Day for some. It’s a time for revelation or insight. It officially marks the end to the Christmas season and the Sacred Nights and opens our door to new beginnings and a new year.
If we think back to the traditional Christian story of the Three Wise Men, we can remember that they were three respected and scholarly men (not actually kings) who traveled east following the bright star in the night’s sky. They hoped to find the new baby that was born who was prophesied to become a great king. After a long journey, they finally arrived and saw the child with his mother Mary and knelt down and honored him. Then they presented him with the precious gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
In this sacred story, we remember Mary, as Divine Mother, as a bridge between the spirit world and earth as she births this child. She allowed herself to open her heart to accept this path of love where she would be the vessel to deliver this divine gift that would bring light into the world.
As we enter into 2021, how can we open our hearts to something new, a new creation that will be birthed in the new year ---something that maybe we can’t even imagine may be a part of our lives on earth?!
And what gifts that nourished us in 2020 do we want to be certain to bring with us on our journey into 2021? Let us be inspired by the gifts of the 3 Wise Men!
As you head into 2021 and consider the new creations you want to birth in this year, what 3 precious gifts do you want to be certain to bring as nourishment on this journey into a new year?
I wish you a Happy and Joyful New Year! May all of your dreams be birthed and nourished in the new year of 2021!
