This is a time for us when we can most easily manifest positive change in our lives. The number 11 is connected with our intuition and psychic ability, as well as our faith and belief in ourselves. This is a day when if we look,if we listen, we will find the pieces that are missing.
For some, this will have been a nice, gentle process. For me it was not. I was thinking deeply about death. I am old ... but not that old! Yet thoughts of personal death came to me, and I was ready for them. Before you run out and dial 911, know that I am referring to a death of my life the way that it has been, and entering into a new life, on a higher plane of consciousness. It came to me symbolically as the death of me.
In one part of this lifetime I was a Medical Technologist. It took quite sometime to make the change into my next profession, that of reading Tarot professionally. I am in the process of transitioning from reading the Tarot to writing for a living. I can only hope that the process of death - of embracing what I need to release, and then releasing it, will make a clean break from my "old" life, and a gracious entrance into my new one.
Some things I know: this will be the last year that I attend a major Tarot event in a professional capacity. My interaction in the Tarot world will be as a writer, not as a reader. My first Tarot book will be published at the end of 2011. My writing project from the 2010 National Novel Writer's Month will be finished and self-published in 2011. My second Tarot book will be finished in 2011. I hope to make my first non-Tarot book into a series. My focus now is rightfully on writing and writer's groups, as opposed to Tarot and Tarot groups.
I have one saving grace, and that is that in 2009 music came back into my life in a big way. It has sustained me, and I am sure will continue to do so.
It will be interesting to hear other 1/11/11 personal stories. I have a feeling that there are more than a few out there, as the numbers are significant.
