An Energy Update Preparing for 2012

Breathe and Let Go
2011 seems to have been particularly difficult year for a lot of people, including myself. It's been rough!
In Chinese astrology this is the last of two Metal years, being the year of the Metal Rabbit. Metal rules the Lungs and Large Intestine and determines our personal power.
The remainder of this year is excellent for letting go of waste in every area of our lives in order to have genuine power, otherwise the power we have will be toxic and we will take it into 2012, which is the first of a deeply emotional two year phase ruled by the water element.
Not only that, 2012 is the end of the ancient Mayan Calendar, which heralds more great endings on many levels. Now is the time to be letting go, let go as much as you can. If something isn't working, don't fight it, it's either let it go now or later, it will have to go at some point, don't waste your energy holding on.
The most basic and effective method of letting go is breathing, think of a situation or an ailment, breathe it out and release it.
For some reason we put off breathing until we've finished something or other, we think we don't have time now to breathe properly. Really, what else is there to do?
The way we breathe is the way we live. Slow your breath down and your life will slow down. Try it. Close your eyes, relax, and breathe slowly until you feel a shift.
Love and letting go for all,
