The 9 Year Cycle
- the end of an era -
going back to claim your future
What we call the
beginning is often the end.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
The end is where we start from.
The 9 year cycle brings you to the end of a complete nine-year cycle of your
life. It is a year to complete unfinished business, reach conclusions and tie up
loose ends. These actions will help you step into the next nine years of your
life without the pressure of unresolved matters of the past pulling you back.
As one door closes another opens, but if you refuse to accept that certain doors
really have closed, you will be unable to recognize the new possibilities. It is
time to face the absolute reality of your past - and how it is impacting your
present, and then decide how you want to create your future. Your reality is not
just a matter of where you stand today or where you want to be tomorrow. It is
made up of everything that has ever happened to you, everyone you have ever met,
anything you have ever done, and any feeling you have ever felt - or denied.
Where you stand today is the result of where you have been. But before you can
progress, you must release yourself emotionally, mentally, or physically, from
those aspects which no longer serve a purpose and are chaining you to a point in
time that no longer exists. It is time to integrate your past with the present,
so that the potential of your future can be seen and felt. This is achieved by
accepting the past exactly as it was and by feeling everything about it that you
have been unable to feel.
A significant transformation is likely this year - alterations and improvements
to all areas of your life, even though you may not immediately see the positive
merits of certain situations. When the old buried emotion that is weighing you
down is released, life suddenly becomes a lighter experience and is more easily
understood and enjoyed. If you feel a sense of numbness or stagnation, it is
because you are so close to accepting your full reality but are holding the
emotions involved in, instead of expressing them out. This
magnetic pressure prevents forward movement and draws you to a repeat of the
very situations you would prefer to avoid. We have all been conditioned to
believe that emotional expression denotes weakness and is ďnegativeĒ. In fact,
emotional expression is our strength, our own self-healing mechanism, our only
means of freedom, and the ultimate tool of creativity.
People who refuse to accept the past spend their lives rehashing the same old
situations, making the same old mistakes, unable to accept new realities, and
dissatisfied with everything. They justify their unsatisfactory existence by
blaming others, blaming time, blaming life itself and blaming themselves.
Some people claim to be apart from or above the journey humanity is taking, all
the time resenting that they are too afraid to be a part of it. And, because
none of us has truly evolved into Free Will yet, we are all effected by these
This year, it is not enough to simply have an intellectual understanding of Free
Will. You will learn that your feelings are your only means of activating
personal freedom. This year of endings and conclusions offers you the chance to
free yourself of the erroneous beliefs that have always caused
unhappiness, dissatisfaction, and stagnation. The 9 year cycle teaches you how
to break free from the past by releasing your grip on it. Without this
understanding, you will forever be a victim of something that once happened to
you. It is time to heal.
Nothing new happens in the 9 year cycle until the necessary endings take place.
The more you strive to begin something new without first releasing the old, the
more resistance life will give you. If you do not make an effort to accept your
emotional realities, you may find that your history will repeat itself in the
next nine years.
This is a year to go back over your lifeís continuous journey and consider
everything that happened to you. There will be things you donít want to
remember; memories you may be blocking from your consciousness. These are the
very events and situations that need to be addressed. These are the heavy loads
that are weighing on you like an anchor, preventing you from moving forward into
the kind of life you desire. The more genuine intent you have to allow
forgotten memories to resurface, the easier it will become to accept 9ís healing
It is the sheer weight of past and present emotion that causes depression, even
though we try to fool ourselves into believing that depression can be avoided by
avoiding these emotions. This pretense creates deeper denial and, eventually,
deeper depression. If you find yourself dwelling on certain emotions such as
anger, fear, or grief to the extent that you cannot live constructively, there
is a good chance you are using these emotions as an excuse for continuing to
deny another emotion which is even more deeply buried. Denial is no longer an
option on this Earth. It is denial that has caused many of the dire problems
that humanity faces today. This applies as much to your personal life as it does
to life in general.
Being afraid to feel your feelings is a natural response. The only way to deal
with this fear is to understand that fear, like all other feelings, must be
allowed to follow its own evolutionary process. It must be allowed to move.
When you cling to fear you are refusing to accept its ability to help you. And,
by stopping its movement you, in turn, become paralyzed by it. Feel your fear,
accept its presence. Allow it to move through you and out of you. This process
develops courage, and the ability to recognize those things which really do need
to be feared, and those which need not be feared at all. Your feelings
are your senses and instincts, all of which are vital to your survival.
Be honest with yourself. Mere positive thinking can do more harm than good if
you are not simultaneously feeling that way. Your thoughts and feelings
are two very different energies and must be experienced separately so that you
can tell them apart. And when your masculine thoughts and feminine feelings make
peace and join forces, your personal power to survive and prosper increases
significantly, and your entire being evolves.
The 9 vibration takes you in what seems like the wrong direction - backwards
- but this is the direction you must take in order to find the unfinished issues
which are preventing you from going forward. It is natural for the 9 year cycle
to be an emotional one. Not only will you be dealing with emotions from the
past, but also with new emotional situations in the present which, in effect,
help trigger the old feelings which need to be released.
This yearís circumstances may be reenactments of the past, in different forms,
representing the consequences of certain actions, inaction, beliefs, and
attitudes. You cannot live fully in the present if part of you is stuck in the
past. Therefore, you will want to go back and retrieve those parts of yourself
that are stuck there.
Generosity and compassion play important roles now. Through a greater depth of
feeling in yourself, you will become more sympathetic to other peopleís
realities and more aware of how you, and they, are compounding certain problems
by denying the feelings involved. You will also become aware of the difference
between compassion and guilt.
If you are reluctantly involved in something, guilt may have convinced you that
itís the right thing to do. Maybe it is. Maybe it isnít. But the only way to be
sure is by letting your true feelings guide you. It is in the 9 year that we
realize the extent to which guilt has kept us from achieving happiness and how
much we have denied guilt by reversing it into blame.
In the 9 year, unhappy memories arise so they can be healed, creating more inner
space for happiness to resurface. Inaccurate beliefs are replaced by new truths
and potentials. As you accept what has happened to you, you develop a
clearer picture of what you want to happen. The old you becomes the
present you, and your Will - your desire - determines the future you.
Not all endings have unhappy emotions attached. Some situations will be
concluded, bringing you much relief. Donít assume the worst. Accept that your
past is the ground you had to cover in order to get to where you want to be.
Your understanding of this will make your 9 year one of the most exhilarating
and dynamic journeys you will ever travel.
