The numeric influences of 2021 & 2022

I began my Sunday today with a Reiki Booster! The Reiki Guy along with his colleague held space for a Reiki circle on zoom this morning and guided us through a beautiful meditation reflecting on 2021.

This motivated (boosted!) me to write a blog for you all as an invitation to reflect on this past year and set your intentions for 2022.

2021This year flew by, right?

Where did it go? How is it even Christmas next week? I have heard so many people say this is the fastest year they have experienced. A real sense of a blur of events and a shift in our concept of time. Numerology, however can help us to understand this. It provides us with insight, some of which I will explain in this blog.

As a collective we have been working with the fast and busy energy that the number ‘23’ (20+2+1) brings! A sense of too much to do and not enough time. Did you feel the pace of life pick up quickly this year, even though it was not tangible? A bit of a whirl wind, bringing with it many emotional highs and lows. A roller-coaster of emotions.

Ultimately, the aim of the 23 is to create change, support us through transitions so that we can transform.

2021 – A year of change!

The overall energy of 2021 is 5 (2+0+2+1=5) and the 5 is all about change!

I know for myself this year has been a year of change and I have witnessed the same in others too. Some of this change has been forced upon us with situations outside of our control whereas with some changes we have had to grab the bull by its horns to make choices and decisions to create the change we needed!

How many resignations have there been this year? People wanting to put their needs first and step off the conveyor belt. People wanting to follow their passions and give their dreams an opportunity.

Sadly, striving for a more meaningful life for many of us has come out of experiencing tragedies this year. Heart breaking and eye-opening experiences. For others, burn out and physical illness have been a catalyst of change. Our bodies communicating with us and somewhat crying out to be heard so that we can create change for the sake of our overall well-being; mind, body and soul/spirit.

The experience of the 5.

The 5 invites us to embrace change through so many different ways. It asks us to be curious about life, plants seeds of adventure in us. It empowers us to make choices that will give us a sense of freedom, removing any shackles that have been holding us back. It gets us to be adaptable and flexible in our thinking about life, asking us let go of the old and create space for the new, even if we don’t know what this might be yet.

Awakening your inner gifts.

This year has carried a ‘musical’ energy. Have you experienced this? Maybe you have listened to music more, or your taste in music has changed? You might have been drawn to particular frequencies of music, especially for healing. Some may have even learnt to play a musical instrument, written songs or had the urge for movement and dance, or to even sing!

The beauty of 2021 is that it would have pushed us into discovering (or remembering) our innate talents and gifts, wanting us to own them, so that one day we can confidently and uniquely share them with others.

So, what does 2022 have in store?

I really enjoyed facilitating a zoom workshop on forecasting for 2022 last month. If you are interested in joining future workshops, I usually advertise this on Instagram @numerologywithsukhi so feel free follow my page to receive these updates.

2022 – The year of love?

The overall energy for next year is 6 (2+0+2+2= 6) and the 6 is ultimately about love!

I invite you to stop for a moment and think about love.

  • What is love?
  • What different types of love are there?
  • Do you love yourself?
  • Do you love thy neighbour?
  • In which ways do you experience love?
  • How do you express love?
  • Is love something you feel or something you do?
  • Are you love?
  • In which ways do you choose love?
  • In which ways do you avoid love?
  • How can you embrace love more next year?

If not right away, try and come back to these questions at some point as they will assist you next year as we work with the 6 energies. I also recommend the book The 5 Love Languages. It gives great insight into what love means to us. It also helps us to understand how love is experienced and expressed by our partners, family, friends and even colleagues, a great tool for better and healthier relationships.

Love, home, family.

The 6 will invite us to create more balance and harmony in all areas of our lives such as in relationships, home and work. It will want us to do things differently by using the lessons that we have learnt in 2020 and 2021 as a reference point for us.

It asks us to work more collaboratively and in partnership with one another. This may bring up difficult feelings around connection, rejection, self-worth but the 6 wants you to know that you are enough and there is plenty for everyone, so if you do notice any insecurities or fear creeping up, then see this as something that needs healing in you. We may need to delve further into our own healing facing our ‘shadows’ and inner demons’ in order to gratefully release them.

The 6 wants us to love unconditionally, seeing beyond people’s ‘imperfections’, recognising their inner beauty and always seeing the intent behind their actions (this is why the 5 love languages is a great book to read.)

The ‘22’ (20+2+2) invites us to be more of service to each other, creating a sense of community and togetherness, whilst staying devoted to our own growth too. A balance between giving and receiving. We may search for a deeper meaning in life, exploring mysticism and spirituality.

2022 – Opportunities opening up.

2022 is a year to take action! What seeds have you previously planted? Are there ideas you put out there? 2022 offers the opportunity to turn ideas into a physical and practical reality. Remain open to receiving as this is key in 2022. We can only embrace an opportunity if we remain open to receiving it, otherwise how will we notice it?

Remember, sometimes we may not receive what we expected. The key to manifesting is letting go of the outcome you want, because in doing so you prevent limiting the outcome. What if the universe has something bigger and better planned for you? Trust.

Ultimately all the 2’s in 2022 bring in new perspectives inviting us to look at situations from both (or all) sides of the coin. Everyone sees things differently and there is great value in listening to all perspectives to give us a wider lens to explore a larger landscape, one that would otherwise remain restricted, if we chose not to.

Let’s welcome 2022.

Unconditional Love. Harmony. Balance. Giving and Receiving. Inner shadow work. Community. Collaboration. Partnership. Opportunity. Manifesting. Doing things differently!

Festive blessings.

Thank you for taking time to read this blog. I can’t promise to be more active on my website just yet, but I am very active over on my Enlight Instagram page, so please feel free to join me over there!

I hope you have a peaceful and joyful festive break, despite the current situation with the virus, remaining in a place of gratitude – as this uplifts our energy and is contagious!

Lots of love

A Special Kind of Love

Yesterday, we said our farewells to our late uncle aged 55 years old as we gathered for the day that marked his funeral; 30th November 2017. He was born with what I call the ‘gift’ of Down Syndrome. Often gifts are concealed in such a way that their true meaning and beauty is only recognised when the person receiving the gift looks through a lens of love and gratitude and not their ego. The true essence of the gift can go unnoticed if the ego is present. The ego alters perception and sets expectations.

Our uncles gift, was that of unconditional love; a love where there is no expectation, no ego, no judgment and in essence this is true love. It is not based on the material world, it is not valued by a price tag, it is not proved through quantity but purely through quality.  This is the true love we all seek, deep down. It is the love of pure acceptance. The love that does not demand change for it’s own gain.

One of the biggest challenges of humanity is to realise that we ultimately are beings of love. This love is contagious -it creates a powerful energetic vibrational wave, which spreads everywhere. It has the ability to clear negativity. It has power to heal people and situations. It is not just the love for ‘hippies’; prejudice views that are often used to dismiss that love belongs in you too. It is the love, that can change the world, overide the corruption we live in.

‘Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive’ Dalai Lama

The problem is love can be seen as a ‘weak’ thing, yet it is the most powerful. Love is therefore judged, by the very own people who have been given this gift. It is misused, misunderstood (attachment and co-dependency) and almost feared, yet it is what is fundamentally seeked by all. Such a paradox.

My uncle, was not given language to communicate, yet he found a way. He did not have a voice, but spoke through his eyes, his actions and his behaviours towards others; this was the language of unconditional love and this was reinforced throughout our conversations during our gatherings around his death.

I stand in great honor to have had him in my life.  We had a very close connection witnessed by many, which I never labelled but now realise that we were engaged in unconditional love; the most powerful when it is in the mutual flow of  ‘giving and receiving’.

When two people love each other unconditionally, despite the relationship label (parent to child, spouse to spouse, friend to friend) it is experienced most powerfully. It is your true essence and their true essence. It is your soul and their soul. This is true love.

Today, it is the first day of the last month of 2017. As the year draws closer, I invite you to reflect on the concept of love and how it has played a part, or been absent in your life during these past eleven months.

  • RESPONDING WITH LOVE; In order to respond with true love and compassion means letting go off ego. 

How often did you respond with love in 2017? How often did you react from anger and frustration? How many times did you chose a price tag over a gesture? Did you set expectations on others for your own gain? Do you deep down believe that you own the people in your life, just because you are defined by a relationship by blood or by law?  This is ego, not love.

‘Love never claims, it ever gives. Love ever suffers, never resents, never revenges itself.’ ‘Mahatma Ghandi

Have you found it hard to respond to someone with love because of the way they have treated you? I went to my first ‘compassion’ meditation retreat a couple of years ago where we looked at exactly this; seeing and responding to everyone from the eyes of love and compassion. Trust me this was hard! How can you respond to someone with love when they have treated you in a way, or judged you in a way that has made loving them the very last thing you want to do!

This takes a lot of self growth and shedding of the ego which allows you to not take it personally, which ultimately helped me on my journey and supported me to make decisions in my life. Understand that some ‘suffering’ sits underneath the other person’s behaviour.  It’s not about you. It’s about them. If you react to their drama you make it about you (which allows them to ‘dump’ their stuff on you, which means they get to ignore it!).  You go round in circles and get nowhere. If you simply respond with love and compassion you shift the vibration between you. They are left ‘carrying’ their issue rather than ‘dumping’ it on you and you carrying it for them. You give them the opportunity to deal with what belongs to them. It is then their choice whether they do or not, not yours.

This is an act of ‘self love’.  It is only when you do this, that you start to gain clarity over the whole situation. You can detangle your ‘stuff’, from theirs and see your own true feelings more clearly. So in turn, by responding to them with love you are also showing love to yourself.

  • LOVE YOURSELF FIRST; This might mean ‘Loving yourself back to life’. 

How have you loved yourself in the past year? How often have you taken time out for yourself? Have your internal world and external world been a bit of a mismatch? Like you were smiling on the outside, but not feeling the joy on the inside? 

The only way to true happiness is by loving and accepting yourself. Not by expecting someone else to make you happy. Not by projecting your own fears and insecurities onto the other and not by becoming a martyr for someone else.

Has it been hard to love yourself? Have you felt others deserve happiness but you don’t? Have you avoided being alone with yourself? Perhaps worried what might happen if you stop!? Like opening a can of worms? Or it’s just such an unnatural thing to do as you have always looked after others? 

The thing is either way can take it’s toll – but one way is the healthy way, and the other is destructive. Realise that both ways can be painful; facing ourselves and avoiding ourselves, but it is only when you go inward (face yourself) you will actually find long lasting happiness. This is self love which forms the basis of unconditional love; for yourself and subsequently for others.

If you continue to search for happiness through  others, then sadly that happiness will only be temporary.

‘Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes’ Carl Jung. 

In tribute to my uncle, who by taking his last breath, communicated such a strong message, I with such privilege share with you the reminder of unconditional love.

I hope that somewhere in you, something resonates and perhaps even sparks either as confirmation that you are on the right track or that something in your life needs some attention or perhaps even some change.

I hope it empowers you to know that only you can make these changes. The first step is to look within yourself. Find the love in you, for you before you can truly love someone else.

“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” Buddha

Thank you so much  for taking the time to read this.

With much love (of course!),
