The Weeks Ahead

THE YEAR OF THE DRAGON IN YOUR LIFE

According to the Chinese tradition, every twelve years comes a very strong year that is full of changes and new potential, forcing you to commit fully to a new direction and a better sense of your own identity. In 2024 this is represented at the new year by Year of the Dragon, more specifically, the Green Wooden Dragon, until January 28th, 2025.

Chinese New Year falls on a different date on the Gregorian calendar. The dates usually range sometime between January 21 and February 20. Each year has a different energy marked by an animal sign from the Chinese zodiac and one of the five elements: fire, water, wood, metal, and earth. Chinese New Year occurred on February 9, ushering in the year of the Green Wooden Dragon. What does this really mean?

To get an idea about 2024’s energy, remember previous dragon years, such as 2000 and 2012. They were both times marked by prophecies of renewal and change. 2000 was the unavoidable passage to a new millennium, while 2012 marked the end of the ancient Mayan calendar.

These years were both inspiring and dreaded. Representing the end of old structures, they were misunderstood to be times of destruction. You may have to experience the destruction of what no longer serves you and that may be painful. The Green Wooden Dragon leads us to a shamanic death and rebirth, a change of consciousness that welcomes a better version of our reality.

Representing energy, strength, and power, the dragon is considered the most powerful sign and one of the luckiest animals of the Chinese zodiac. This gives you the opportunity to be the best of who you are but there is a catch. If every part of your being is in integrity, you are in for the best ride of your life, but if some parts of you are not aligned with your self-realization, you will find yourself in situations where you have no choice but to do what it takes to make things work.

Some say the dragon is a masculine force, some say it represents the Divine feminine. Others see in the dragon, the balance between masculine and feminine polarities.

In ancient China, tribes were identified by a symbolic animal. The tribe that won over the other tribes had the snake for an emblem. The leader of this tribe was not a conqueror, but a pacifist and instead of forcing the loosing tribes to use the snake as symbolic animal, he created a composite mythical animal, adding to the snake parts of the animals from all the other tribes. The dragon has the body of a snake with dear’s horn, a lion’s head, a horse’s tail, tiger’s paw etc.

So, the dragon gets its success and elevation from its ability to unite, unify, and bring together the different qualities of each and everyone, even opposite qualities. The dragon is above all a symbol of unity. In your own life, think about how you can bring more unity, simplify and harmonize the parts and bits that you have to deal with, bringing you peace of mind and a sense of incredible achievement.

In our next meditation practice on February 24th, we will work on the third flaw of humanity: Arrogance, which is a big obstacle in humanity’s evolution. I hope to see you there. Have amazing weeks ahead in unity with the newborn wooden dragon!

Clear Yourself & the Planet Part 3

How to Free Yourself from Arrogance

The 3rd Flaw of Humanity

In this meditation, you will have the opportunity to clear and unroot from your subconscious mind the third flaw of humanity: Arrogance. Arrogance is a mental state in which one feels superior to others. It may seem without consequences at first, but in fact, it is the root cause of inequality. How so?

Feeling superior is enough to justify in the eyes of the perpetrator unacceptable behaviors of oppression toward others judged inferior. Whether you feel superior or inferior to others, you suffer from a disconnection with your true nature as spirit, which is precisely the distortion of truth implied by the third flaw of humanity.

At a soul level, we are all made of the same substance: light. Forgetting who we are allows the victim/perpetrator dynamic to settle in, with more and more abuse of power creating imbalances and tremendous suffering in relationships as well as in society.

The goal of this practice is to be free from the terrible karmic weight that still permeates the collective subconscious in this time of transition from the 5th sun- a time characterized by injustice, to the 6th sun- a time of peace and balanced spirituality.
