This New Years Eve we will all be staying up to Midnight just to see 2016 die!
Why did 2016 suck so much? What are the lessons? Will 2017 be more of the same or are headed into a lighter, brighter year?
Kerrie Wearing is a Medium and Country Music Fan while Karen Rontowski is a Tarot Card Reader and Comedienne. We asked both to help us understand why 2016 sucked and what 2017 might look like and how to survive it.
Why did 2016 suck?
Kerrie Wearing: Facing your shit is always hard. 2016 is a year that globally shifted the collective consciousness quite significantly. As we slowly move more to growing and embracing love, we will also see the resistance to that grow until such time we reach a pinnacle and love prevails. Probably not in our lifetime but one day.
Karen Rontowski: Because my country let me down and voted in an orange ape as president. then the good celebrities died but David Hasselhoff continues to haunt us! Also I'm tired.
What should we have learnt?
Kerrie: 2016 was the opportunity to let go of where you were living life that was not aligned with your authentic self. Be it jobs, relationships, your sexuality and just about any aspect of you, many people were guided spiritually to look in the mirror over the last couple of years and be honest about who they are and how they truly want to live their life. 2016 was the culmination of that and the more you resisted the truth within the harder it was.
This looking in the mirror is what the US is doing right now collectively with the new President Elect.
Karen: It was the year of purification. Numerological a 9, that means we were supposed to get rid of all the things, people and jobs we don't need. I don't like change or purification. I prefer sludgy apathy.
What is install for us for 2017?
Kerrie: Well that depends on the choices you made in 2016. Did you honour what you saw in the mirror and face the tough stuff or did you go about business as usual. Biz as usual peeps will see you begin round 2, it'll be lighter and a little easier to flow through as it will be for us all though you have set the tone for life for 2017 and beyond.
If you made it out of 2017 alive after going the your tough mudder course then you have a big cause for celebration. You will now be experiencing a new you and 2017 is all about seeing that flow in your life and the differences that will bring. These are not just small subtle differences, life will be moving towards a difference as significant as night is to day. There'll be more freedom to be YOU, more abundance and plenty of new beginnings for those who honoured their heart. I expect you'll have plenty of JOYgasms throughout 2017.
Karen: Next year is the year of truth.that means that I have to face the fact that tI am not that perfect and I honestly don't think my fans can take that. I do like that in the year of truth we have the mose lames fucked pathological liar in charge and we might see him get hi come-up-ins. those are not muffins if you don't use that phrase there.
What's your best tip for survival?
Kerrie: My best tip for survival in 2017 is to hang on to your hat, as 2017 is going to be a wild ride created by the flow of living from your heart. Otherwise, no matter the year always work towards deepening your connection to your Soul. Its your compass baby and when you also align it with the Divine's essence of Love and JOY there is only LOVE, even in the darkness.
