In this post, the personal years 3 and 4 will be discussed. A quick reminder that personal years are part of reinvention cycles as defined by Pythagoras and you can think of it as the energy of your year. We move through these nine year reinvention cycles throughout our lives.
If you are wondering what your personal year is, simply add together the month and day of your birth with the current year. Mine looks like this: December 30 = 12 + 30 + 2015 = 2057 = 2+0+5+7 = 14 = 1+4 = 5. 2015 is a personal year 5 for me. Remember, personal years run January to December with the calendar, not birthday to birthday.
2013 was a personal year 3 for me (December 30 = 12 + 30 + 2013 = 2055 = 12 = 3). A personal year 3 is a creative, social year. A year full of ideas, creative downloads and distractions! I often call a personal year 3 the shiny penny year. Think of yourself as a social butterfly going from event to event with lots of ideas, lots of distractions, and very little focus. You will need to find a way to focus and express the creative energy in a personal year 3. That's the core of the number 3, creative expression.
In 2013, I was full of ideas! I was walking regularly and nearly had to carry a pen and paper with me so that I could capture the ideas running through my head. It was also a year of travel: Mazatlán Mexico in March, Disney World in June and a Wine Cruise through England, France, Spain and Portugal in October. It was the year I discover the Camino de Santiago and added it to my bucket list. Who knew when I first started reading about it in April, I would have the opportunity to visit the end point, the Cathedral de Santiago de Compostela when I was in Spain in October. Coincidence? Nope. I love the way the Universe works for our greatest good. I didn't do a lot of writing in 2013, I was saving it for 2014!
2014 was a personal year 4 for me (December 30 = 12 + 30 + 2014 = 2056 = 13 = 4). A personal year 4 is a year of hard work moving you closer to your dreams and goals. It's a foundational year in the cycle. Just think of the 4 corners of a square or a house. The four corners form the foundation from which to build. That's the essence of the number 4, hard work and foundation.
In 2014, I started writing! Talk about hard work! The Real Life Spark newsletter started in January of 2014. I also wrote My Seasons of Transformation and Transformation through Volunteerism. Both will be published by the end of 2015 (the first in Women Living Consciously, Vol II and the latter in Keys to a Good Life). There was some travel involved - visit to the Ranch and a trip to Scotland. It was a year where I started to find my voice and move my life in the direction that I wanted. Foundational work at its best.
What's going on in your current reinvention cycle? What's your personal year? Any questions, post them in the comments below and we can discuss.
Next post is 2015, my personal year 5. Stay tuned.
Wishing you peace, love and sparks of inspiration! Deb
