Welcome to 2014 and the Year of the Unicorn. Well, okay — the wooden or green horse — but it’s the year of the Unicorn! That means it is about transformation and action. Wooo hoo!

I mean, how did we get the energy of two new moons in January and one a Super Moon? Talk about a rocket ship forward into a New Era.

It’s a whole new energy from the whole shedding of the skin thing we did last year — which is great. Phew! We are now brand new. And all those old ways of doing things just don’t cut it anymore.

Even the reactions to intense solar flare activity is different (and we are still having that, as we speak – so you might feel a bit dizzy or out of sorts). Andrew and I have been feeling at times, very high and goofy — very floaty. A feeling that is impossible to ground into any sort of seriousness. We just feel excited. Because it is the year of the Unicorn, and that really appeals to Bush Elves. There’s a feeling of optimism and positivity in the air. Anything could happen.

It’s time to unhitch and ditch the past, and move into the real, authentic you. We are all unique – so how can you bring your unique spirit to the world? Honour yourself and set your compass to Home, which is your Heart. This is a year for taking risks to be you, and making them work. Grounding them! Especially if you are passionate and excited and focussed and active. And the word here is “unique.” There is no competition. Each of us is here for a reason with our own self-expression of whatever it is we are here to do. So drop all your programming and examine who You really are. You are not a reaction. Or a limitation. You are just pure shiny you!

Live Well Despite It All

Magic abounds. This morning, as Andrew and I were discussing our hand-feeding animals options, and starting to sink emotionally a bit (last year was not much fun), two beautiful eagles appeared right above us to lift our spirits again. Magic!

It feels like so much lightness and positivity as the old world crumbles. And it is crumbling. And the advice I have been given is to detach. Now this doesn’t mean you don’t care at all. Because it is important we do care. But if you can accept that a lot is going to change this year in the old world, and focus on building the new world instead, then it might go more quickly, and less painfully for you and everyone else. What we give energy to, grows. And we all need to really get that. So be an activist for sure, because we need the change makers. But watch your emotions and feelings. This is we why are feeling so upbeat at home, because we are working on creating a better future, and we keep seeing, despite the horrors, that the world is already changing to a more compassionate, caring place. That’s exciting!! And that’s people power.

One of the things Spirit showed me last year was that we all had to “live well, despite it all”. So this is something to remember if you find yourself caught up in the drama of the old world collapsing. It doesn’t matter what is going down, try and find the bright side. I wake up every morning and do my gratitudes, and it sets me up for a better day, despite any adversity. I know everyone says to do that — but do do it. It makes a difference. It was always said that the New Earth would arise out of the ashes from the old one. So just remember, you are building the new one!!


I wonder how many others are feeling like you have unhitched from the old world? This Bush Elf is now very impatient for change, and the galloping Unicorn doesn’t make it any easier! We are in Change Process. Metamorphosing. Woo hoo! And now’s the time to reach for your highest and best, and to figure out ways to ground that into current reality.

If you are wondering what you are really here for, try finding a good numerologist, because the code can be cracked by the numbers! What is your date of birth? It tells you what your soul came here to do. One of my favourite books for this is Dan Millman’s The Life You Were Born to Live: A Guide to Finding Your Life Purpose (Amazon).

This year is about really unshackling yourself from whatever story you are entangled in and finding your Authentic You. If you re brave and allowing, you’ll find your Higher Self, leading you into more of your heart-centered work. If it feels heavy, think twice before stepping in. If it feels good, do it! It’s all about setting yourself up for your new heart-centered work, and building a strong foundation. Because from there you will fly.

The big dates to watch for are the March Equinox, another shift. And then there is amazing astrology at the end of April which has all the astrologers very excited and to be honest, expect the unexpected. This might be the motto for this year: Expect the unexpected. Globally and personally. And take those leaps of faith to follow what your heart is longing for you to do. Keep affirming your I AM presence — but watch what you are I AM-ing!

Evolution-wise — well becoming “lighter” and grounding that light into strong foundation is what this year is about. It does feel a better year and all those suffering Post -Traumatic Stress Syndrome from last year, re-read today’s blog. Have hope. Take a breath and intend that nothing is going to be as bad as last year ever again. Get determined to get joyful and don’t be wishy washy about it. Keep walking the highest road. Are you operating from the highest ethics? Are you being as green and kind and compassionate as you can be? Are you in a state of curious allowing?

Andrew and I are changing what we are doing this year — because — it’s Divine Timing and it’s … the year of the Unicorn. We’re setting up lots of fun so make sure you are on the newsletter list so you can join a community dedicated to healing through fun, and deeper, more sacred connections to animals and nature. Here’s a sneak peek: we’ve been gleefully rehearsing some comedy routines in the kitchen, stepping over tiny goats and cats and dogs while we prepare their dinner. Watch this space! And please, enjoy the year of the Unicorn, and make it as fun as you can!!
