The 2 Year Cycle
A slow journey of Connection, Patience,
Attention To Detail, Relationship,
Cooperation, Courtesy, Sensitivity,
Caring, and Gradual Progress
Time is always short, from birth to death.
Why? Because we do not know how to stop.
The 2 year cycle is
an inspiring twelve month journey in which you will find exciting connections
between your past, your present, and your future. Eventually, you will be able
to use this information to set an ambitious goal in motion. But make no mistake,
what happens this year is going to take perseverance and, above all, great
First, you must slow
down and stop pushing to get results. What you want is going to take longer to
achieve than expected, so tone down your high expectations of yourself and
others, and pay patient and meticulous attention to the details of all
You must learn to
move more slowly, attentively, and with mutual interests in mind. If not,
you will miss too many clues and connections to make any kind of measurable
progress. Widen your lens. See a bigger picture. Discover your connection to
everything that is influencing your life.
Of course, it can be
difficult to slow down when you are so sure that you need to be moving faster,
but until you do slow down - enough to see the finer and often overlooked
details of your reality - you will have no idea of where you have come from, who
you are becoming, where you are, what you're doing, why you're doing it, where
you're going, or the roles that others are playing in your life. Clarity is one
of the principle gifts of the 2 year, just as long as you slow yourself down
enough to be able to claim it.
Try to accept
everything that happened in your past and, simultaneously, live in the present.
This is no easy task, but if you make this your genuine aim, and do not struggle
with the slowness of it all, or repress the emotions that it triggers, the
insight you gain this year will carry you into a future of your choice.
Let go of all that stress by letting your emotions flow freely. Once they have
been expressed out of your body, you can relax. Being relaxed is being at
ease with yourself. Dis-ease (illness) manifests when you are not relaxed or
when you are ill at ease. If you hold on to stress and refuse to slow down, your
body will become even more burdened by the pressure of the 2 cycle's slower
speed. Illness, can result.
Remember: stress is
the pressure of feelings that cannot leave your body because they are being held
in rather than expressed out. Whether illness is involved or not, if you do not
significantly reduce your pace and your stress this year, the 2 energy will find
a way to do it for you.
You cannot compete
with the 2 energy because PEACE is its nature. There is no need to push
yourself. If you do, the results you desire will not materialize in the way you
desire. But you will be amazed at what you can accomplish when you live
your life at the same pace as the cycle you are in.
You may find yourself
retreating from aggressive and stressed-out individuals. If you cannot
physically move away from them, you will only prevent their problems from
becoming yours through a relaxed and patient frame of mind. This is a time of
deep awareness, civility and kindness. You are about to leave the human "race"
for a year and become the human-being you may have forgotten you are.
As your understanding
of other people increases, you will realize that even those who appear
aggressive may be covering up great unhappiness inside. You will need to be
tactful and sensitive to their feelings and find a way to create harmony. Even
if you are the one who feels vulnerable and unsure of yourself, try not to
respond with aggression or defensiveness. Be patient with yourself, and you will
find it easier to be patient with others. A little lightness and humor will go a
long way in easing this year's unavoidable tensions.
Correct timing and patience are major aspects of the 2 year. Your goals are either being taken
care of behind the scenes where premature action cannot harm them, or they are
dependent on other factors that first have to 'happen' before you can proceed.
Patience does not mean merely putting up with adverse conditions. You
must stand up for yourself as needed. But, for the most-part, this is a year in
which to quietly and conscientiously pave the way for future success. This
entails careful attention to detail, and really listening to what others
have to say.
Take the emphasis off
you. Achievements will develop through teamwork egoless cooperation. Use your
abilities in ways that will benefit others. You will be unable to move forward
unless you are patient; unless you wait for developments to happen in their own
time, and unless you relax your tensions and long-term concerns.
You will feel a need
for more warmth and affection, more acceptance for your feelings, and for the
feelings of others. True prosperity and security cannot be realized through
war-like competition and aggression. Truth, peace, cooperation, and tolerance
are now your only means of moving forward. From this quieter and more peaceful
perspective, you will find ways to change the parts of your life that you do not
like. When you live on a moment-by-moment basis, you will understand that the
present is your only exit from the past, and your only gateway to the future.
The past and future are connected by the decisions you make and the actions you
take in the present. This year you must decide to quiet your mind, develop your
intuition, and rely on it to make decisions that are right for you. You will
know if something is right by the way you feel about it.
Despite the slowness
of the 2 year, you will be making significant progress. You will become more
sensitive to the metaphysics of life and be able to sense reality rather
than rely on others to tell you what is what.
You may experience
intense flashes of intuition and inner knowing. Strange dreams are not unusual
in the 2 year. Don't be afraid of them. They are trying to tell you something
important. It would be a good idea to keep an ongoing record of your dreams.
Write them down upon waking. No matter how abstract or bizarre they seem, you
will soon see a pattern emerging which will provide insight into the issues of
your everyday life.
When you recognize
and feel the nurturing 2 energy, you will want to relax right into it. You will
want to flow with it. In this gentle state of being carried along, your
understanding of freedom and love will expand. You will know that aggression and
denial of reality have almost killed our capacity to think, feel, move, and
enjoy. This year's events will show you that Free Will is the next step of human
evolution. Free Will is the future. Without it, we are slaves.
distractions, delays and diversions are designed to develop your power of
patience. Each situation contains an important lesson or opportunity. Patiently
assess everything that is going on around you and inside you. Learn to feel
and sense your way through life instead of forcing your way through it or
going into denial. Be sensitive. Sense your reality.
Little effort is
required when it comes to your personal ambitions. This process of delay and
intrusion is actually helping them along. If you do succumb to frustration and
surge ahead, you may force yourself into the wrong place at the wrong time, and
you will need more than mere diplomacy to get yourself out of the mess.
The circumstances of
others will slow you down. Teamwork is highlighted, and you are likely to have a
specific role to play within a group, partnership, or relationship. Be
diplomatic and considerate while you figure out what these people have to teach
or show you. Some will be teaching you 'how to', while others will be teaching
you 'how not to'.
If anger arises,
allow yourself to feel it, preferably when you are alone. Get it out of
your system. There is no need to confront people unless your feelings tell you
it is absolutely necessary. Listen to what your anger or any other feeling is
telling you, and you will soon understand why your circumstances are as they
are. Ask yourself, "What is really going on here"? And then hear all the fear
and judgment contained in your replies. A strong intent to feel what your
feelings are telling you will activate your intuition and provide the answers
Feelingyour intuition takes time, patience, and a genuine desire to cooperate with it.
Once you do, you will realize that intuition is a tool for understanding and
improving any situation. You will also understand that humanity is made up of
individuals who have a right - and a duty - to rescue their free will from those
who would seek to control it by sensing and 'feeling out' the truth. Intuition
comes from your inner feelings and not your outer thoughts.
There is no need to
lose your dignity or become a 'doormat' in order to cooperate. This year, you
are developing a confidence and grace which will allow you to deal with all
situations calmly and efficiently, without becoming enmeshed in other people's
problems. Your ability to notice and take care of details will make you
respected and indispensable. That is a powerful position to be in, but your high
self-esteem will not allow you to become so indispensable that you cannot
walk away from or change an adverse situation.
If you do not develop
a warm and willing attitude toward others, you will find that your main
experience is nervousness, conflicting relationships, blame, guilt, anger, fear,
oversensitive and insensitive reactions, and unrelenting criticism. If any of
this occurs, you may be trying to control another, or you may believe that
others have the power to control you.
others requires you to feel their singular presence; to listen not
only to the words they are saying, but also to the overall message they are
trying to convey; to see them as they are, in their entirety instead of focusing
on one aspect, and to become aware of how you are connected to them. Even
the slightest act of control or manipulation is likely to work against you. This
year, you must release your control over others or break free of their control
over you. You will discover how much more loving and lovable you have become in
Last year you learned
about the importance of your individuality and independence. This year you will
learn that everyone is operating according to their own energies; everyone has
their own story to tell; everyone is of equal importance; and everyone feels.
The way we treat and relate to others affects feelings and behavior and the
quality of life.
The 2 year will make
you aware of patterns of behavior that impede your freedom or someone else's. In
these turbulent times, being able to tolerate, understand, and cooperate, is an
exact and extremely valuable talent - and this is your year to show just how
talented you are.
