According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2022 is the Year of the Water Tiger.
It starts from February 1 and lasts until January 2, 2023. Those born in the Year of the Tiger are said to be brave, competitive, unpredictable and confident. It is also the Water sign this year and water means ’emotion’.
I have been really reflecting on and thinking about what is happening today in our world and the energy of the Tiger. It’s going to be a big year emotionally and energetically. So much of our life is bright and wonderful then we are also accompanied by the negative as well. It’s the duality of life.
So, I believe this year is all about what the Tiger brings! From wars being started, to standing up for what you feel is right, to coping with what happens to people we love or don’t even know.
Whatever, happens always try to come back into balance with your own emotions, work out if you need to feel the way you do in some situations, if those emotions are pulling you down or making you high on life. And which you would rather feel, because as heavy and dark it is, how we FEEL is a decision we make.
I had an experience recently where I had a vision and signs of bombs coming down out of the sky, a vision that looked so real I jumped and held my breath for a moment or two. It was last November while sitting having my morning cup of tea on my front deck, when I heard the sound of a helicopter fly close by but unable to see it, but then in view came a war plane that sent a bomb down onto a house diagonally across from mine. I saw the house blow up and I felt I wanted to run, where would I go? Into the forest behind my house? There was nowhere to run and hide, so I sat there thinking it was very interesting, but why did I see this? Then two days following I was sitting in the same spot, no sounds this time, only the sight of a couple of planes again coming across the house straight in front of me. The house within a moment was gone and the people inside I knew died. I did not jump this time, I sat and pondered why was I having these visions.
I actually thought it might have been associated with me getting the vaccine, as my higher self/spirit had already informed me many times the vaccine was safe for me. I asked many, many times concerning the vaccine if it was okay to get it and every time I asked, the same answer came. Yes, it’s safe for me (note I said ‘me’). However, not as safe for other people! So, I took the visions to metaphorically mean that the v**cine was safe for me, but not other people and they were the homes being destroyed in this war. This was just my interpretation of these visions. Then on the 22/02/2022 we had a huge thunderstorm throughout the night, I was restless, I haven’t heard such loud thunder and rain and lighting so bright for years. I was enjoying this amazing act of mother nature and thinking my mum would have loved this (she died when I was 12). In amongst all this at some point during the night.
My mind went into action… 2022, was not going to be an easy year for myself (but also collectively), it has already begun with my sister dying, catching COVID, a person I love passing over, and yet another good friend and beautiful human is dying. On top of this grief, I have had to replace two pumps at my house, I have not had a bathroom for 5 months (have had a camp shower and toilet put in under my house), and a lot more of life’s curveballs but I keep showing up daily and I am fine, I am happy and well. I’m not sure you could call it ‘thriving’, but the reality is, we don’t always thrive at times in life.
What I am being shown, is that much is happening around me (you) and a lot of it has to do with emotions of the world. Which I think we can all collectively understand has been a rollercoaster for most people. As the puzzle came together, I came to the realisation that war may actually start but I will be fine, you will be fine! You will be fine as long as you stay balanced, feel good about the changes, send love to everyone, remember everything is an experience that we need to have to be alive, to be human. And, to support each other anyway we can, also join groups for mediation or learn to clear and clean your emotional state to cope with this changing planet.
You NEED to protect your energy, your home and you. Turn off the news, give time and energy to things that make you feel as good as possible and try to limit the things that deplete you. This is a time in the world where we must protect ourselves energetically. The only way you can do this, is in any given moment that tests your emotional stability, say to yourself, how would I approach this situation if I came from a place of love? Perhaps a friend or family member is not respecting your boundaries? Or someone has run into your car? Or you’ve lost your job due to a Government mandate? Are you fearing the current world politically climate? Approach these situations from a place of pure love and your response will be a completely different one if you approach from a place of anger or fear. Say to yourself ‘if I embodied pure love right now, how would I respond?’
And I know this might not seem easy but controlling how WE respond is the ONLY thing we can do to help change your emotional state and look after your wellbeing. This has a physical change in your body that I’ll explore in another blog. But for now, I hope that this Year of the Tiger, teaches you the lessons you need. Remember though, we must support our emotional states and help those around us to. Come from love.

Love of oneness,
