The New Year is coming

No matter what we are going to do, no matter if we like it or we are angry, the New Year is coming. I hear the clock ticking and realize the quiet power of time. There is probably no other quality in the whole Universe that has such power over us and that awakens so much passion in us.

Is it because we cannot corrupt the clock ticking and we cannot steal any extra time? We can only watch the regularity and accept or celebrate the imaginary milestones like when we officially change the number of year in the calendar. And although there are other numbering systems too, we enter the gate of 2018 tonight.

Passing milestones on the life path is always an opportunity to refresh senses and recheck directions. That’s why so many people make a list of resolutions. I have never done such a list, but I like to know how I feel where I am.

And I am glad I decided to open the door for blogging, to have a space for sharing part of myself with all of you. Thanks for reading, commenting and/or stopping by! I appreciate the time you spent with me. And believe me, I don’t regret the time I have spent with you, reading your posts. Thanks for enhancing my life, bringing me a new inspiration.

With love, Ivana

Seasonal clock

Even if the life seems to be ruined into pieces and difficult to fix, there are rules we can rely on. The all known universe works on the principle of regular repeating events. If you like to profit from it, observe. Be aware of what surrounds you.

Soon you find that everything has a rhythm. And depends on your inner tuning, through which rhythm you see the world. My tuning works with four beats, but there are systems built on three or five beats as well. All of them have a logic and even tradition, so follow your self.

My “seasonal clock” could represent anything what is repeated regularly and makes a cycle. It could be a year, a day, a month, a life, etc. For the picture above I have chosen the year, divided to zodiac signs in the inner circuit and illustrated by typical nature/people event on the outer circuit.

I have applied the 4 beats rhythm, so the circle is divided into 4 main parts (elements) – fire (red), air (yellow and green), water (blue) and earth (brown). Most people would probably orientate the picture upside down, because it is more common to see the fire and air above the water and earth. Both are OK.

Relating seasons with elements was quite easy. The hot summer belongs to the fire, while the cold and wet winter is represented by water. Autumn is the harvest time, so it fits to the earth, while the major sign of the spring is a fast move and change, so it fits to the air. Then the vertical line indicates solstice and the horizontal line indicates the equinox.

We can do the same with the lunar cycle and you see it on the picture too. The full moon is the place on the circle, where is the most light, so it corresponds to the summer solstice of the solar cycle. The new moon is the place full of darkness, so you find it on the same place as the winter solstice, while the quarters are placed like equinoxes. Do you see the trick?

If we talk about the day, so morning is spring, noon is summer solstice, afternoon is summer, evening is autumn, midnight is winter solstice and the night is winter. The same could be applied to the life: spring is childhood, summer is youth, autumn is maturity and winter is old age and also prenatal age (spent in water).

Once you comprehend the rhythm of the life and typical characteristics of each phase, you will be more stabilized, better choose the right timing and succeed more easily.

I have even started to read my body through the same clock. Still in a process, but there are some results! Hopefully I will share them soon.

With love, Ivana
