Why 2017 Is the Year of the Phoenix

[Mindful disclaimer: I am neither in the possession of truth, nor do I have – as they say - monopoly on the truth. Everybody has to seek and find what’s true for them. I am just another soul on the path of Truth (with a capital T) – whatever that means. While I travel down the long and lonesome road of life’s ups and downs, I have chosen the art of writing as my tool to dig deeper, in hope of finding pieces of clues that will help me solve life’s mysteries. Like a transpersonal archeologist, I am digging deep, working on making sense of the fantastically puzzling questions that revolve around the meaning of life and human existence. I am looking for clues to human existence that will shift our consciousness and help us see things through different, more loving, compassionate, forgiving and kinder lenses. So that we may not only transform our own being, but humankind collectively.]


…from heart to heart and soul to soul: May you have a blessed, prosperous, healthy and good year 2017!

In my last article, I mentioned that 2017 vibrates on the number 1 energy. What exactly does that mean?

In numerology, the number 1 resonates with energies such as new beginnings, success and creation. In 2016 many of us worked on completing and fulfilling karmic, old patterns and habits, clearing out everything and everyone that no longer served us (or not at that moment, anyway).

However, 2017 lifts us to a whole new level of consciousness, and after much trauma, pain, and drama, we are finally ready to let the past go and move on to the next stage.

Interestingly, it is also the Chinese year of the rooster, which starts on the eve of January 27, 2017. Some traditions, however, like to translate it as year of the Phoenix and I find that much more fitting, as the Phoenix represents the opportunity for transformation and rebirth. In Greek mythology, Phoenix is a bird which is cyclically regenerated and reborn. The phoenix is associated with the sun and rises from the ashes of his predecessor.

Now, remember how I mentioned that 2017 vibrates on the number 1? (2+0+1+7=1) The number 1 in numerology is also associated with the sun. The sun is masculine energy and refers to the great creator, Father Sky and Divine Higher Consciousness, which literally manifests thoughts into material creation. So, the energy of this year urges us all to create new and beautiful possibilities and opportunities and to rise like a Phoenix from the ashes.

Do you see now how it all makes sense? Like a piece of a puzzle, it creates a beautiful bigger picture and proves that nothing is ever totally random. It is all part of the hidden, spiritual software that runs this life experience and material reality on planet Earth.

But back to Phoenixes and the number 1: This energy urges us to remember that we all are creators in our own rights, part and parcel of divine, higher consciousness which we carry in our hearts. Hence, each and everyone one of us is a divine creator of our own life experiences and reality – both good and bad. So go ahead, wish upon a start this year and see (and feel!!) it come true.

If you feel stuck in your life this energy also reminds you that this is pure illusion and pushes you to take responsibility for your actions – you alone are the driver of your bus, now the question is: where do you want to go next? There are no limits. Literally.

Are you interested in basic manifestation theory? Shoot me an email or shout it out on Facebook and Instagram and I will cover it in more depth in one of my next posts.

Lastly, here’s some food for thought as we take these concepts to a collective level.

I’ve heard many voices both on and offline, reflecting on global affairs with a worried look on their faces. Things certainly do not look very positive for 2017 globally, especially in terms of wars, recent election results in many countries and economic affairs.

So how does, what I just wrote about the number 1 energy, make sense in terms of the collective state of the world?

Well, it’s simple: just like we create and manifest every last of our individual experiences, we also manifest collectively. The mass media plays a major role in this, because they spread fear and people buy into it (Part of the reason why I am very mindful about my own news and media consumption).

Collectively, 2017 is all about your personal choice of, are you going to do what the majority of individuals does: buy into the fear and negativity the media creates and hence create more of it? Or are you going to be “the change you want to see in the world” (as Ghandi put it) and instead join a social organization and movement of some sort to create more positive experiences for humanity? Will you be part of the collective creation of more hate, separation and fear that is slowly building up on this planet? Or will you be different and vibrate on energies of kindness, compassion and oneness instead?

Personally, I hope you choose the latter and together we start a counter-movement of light in 2017. Let’s be sparkles of change this year 2017 and show that this planet has so many more healers, storytellers and peace-makers than it has buffoons, haters, and separators. Beautiful souls who believe in peace, in love, in kindness and compassion towards one another, no matter what race, sex, nationality or species.

To 2017 and to peace, kindness and compassion!

From heart to heart and soul to soul,
