2023 The Year of Self Reflection

People realize the value of self-introspect now more than ever. After the last three years of complex transitions, we are involved in a new design for humanity to heal remarkably. 2023 is the year of an inward journey. As we are on the heels of a new destiny within our human collective, we must take the time to seek those answers within ourselves.

Lean inward, listen more, and speak less. Step back so the journey of internal growth is individually aligned and collectively opened from a calmer state of being. We do need to tell our truths from a highly emotional state. We can be an example of discernment and compassion. Listen to the heart and allow what needs to unfurl to do so within a calm sense of inner faith.

Every year comprises an array of energies that help us as the soul and the collective soul. Not all people can understand how life is healing just yet; many haven't awakened to their attuned gifts, but those of us working from a higher state of being has a responsibility to hold the line and tow it for those still learning to crawl. The world is comprised of numbers. Within those numbers are messages and vibrations that help us acclimate and take on the challenges and healing necessary for our collective body to rejuvenate itself. To recap the years, I want to share the energies from 2019 to 2023 for an overview of what is taking on new shifts as we transient the life of one.

We are all part of a human form within a form of humanity. We represent the full scope of how we are created within the collective energy of mental emotions and physical treatment of ourselves and others. We don't need to speak this out into the universe because it is written within the stars and connects us beyond this world we call home. Let yourself relax and try to understand how influential you are as a soul. Your vital life force is for the eternal healing that opens you and your friends and family to more excellent senses.

It is essential now more than ever to remain heart-centered. To keep what we replay as a person to a more natural loving sensation and stop bringing the past into our present. Where we place, our focus needs to be clear and worthy of our time. We have come to a point in the healing journey to be more mindful and hold ourselves to that accountability. Mind what you participate in and what you share as your 'truth."

2019 was the universal year of three. The number 3 in numerology is the vibration of creative self-expression and emotional sensitivity. It emanates joy, optimism, social engagement, and communication. Universally, we were offered energy that supported infusing our standard norms with more creativity and connection into all that we do. Humor and lightness held immense power to help us face any heaviness or monumental change, and boy, what a year 2019 brought. The mantra for the three Universal Year was to speak your truth. But to do so, you have to know what your “truth” even is—and (hint) it’s not just an uninformed opinion or knee-jerk reaction to the latest headlines. 2019 was the year to “upgrade thyself.” No more driving in the same ruts on the road. Mentally, physically and spiritually, that year encouraged us to go boldly into new and uncertain terrain. We needed to call on ingenuity and amplify the many hard shifts with a deeper family connection.

2020 was the universal year of four. Four in numerology represents stability, order, conscientiousness, and determination. Everything comprises four elements: earth, water, air, and fire. Four is also a feminine number. It was a year focused on building a foundation for the future and was a prominent year. A year of paying attention to details and getting things done pragmatically. 2020 was a year about making a plan, gathering new data, and creating the foundation that will eventually make everything run like clockwork. This showed up in every area of life: health, finances, relationships, and spirituality.

2021 was a year of treating ourselves to a more caring standard and treating what is open within our collective as a community-shared experience. 2021 is the universal year of five. In numerology, the number 5 represents the energy of instability. Change is its crucial mandate. During Universal Year five, the emphasis was to push boundaries, exploration, and new ideas—embark upon with an adventurous and fearless spirit. We were expected to embrace the unexpected to make the most of a five Universal Year. Keeping up with the "Joneses" is no longer necessary, and finding a new way of living that suits your free will flow is more about taking care of yourself first and foremost and not paying attention to what others do.

2022 was universal year six. 2022 was not a “winner takes all” year. The sixth Universal Year supported the expansion and success of businesses or organizations whose values are rooted in service. The visionary nature of the six helps and bolsters services like renewable energy and innovations in caregiving. Many companies not focused on what is best for the greater whole remain turbulent and repressed inside their walls of insecurity. These types of businesses will eventually collapse and thus bringing hardship to those that cannot see the full scope of a broader picture.

This leads us to 2023, universal year seven. This is the year of the inner voyage. This year's energy flows in an atmosphere of privacy, solitude, and quietness. This year will help you to continually seek answers to your steady stream of questions about yourself and life. It is seeking truth, wisdom, dignity, fulfillment, and perfection. This is a year to take it slow, stay as a witness, and participate in only those things that bring you true joy. Let the opportunities come to you, wait for an invitation and seek yourself for the answers within. This is a year of slowing down, resetting, remaining grounded, and heart-based. We have turned a corner. Those energies that float by you within the collective aren't going to be able to maintain their caustic vibration as we go within to steady ourselves as love.

Seek what is within you, quiet yourself, take time away, take extended breaks from the mundane, and turn within; your soul is waiting for your thoughts to subside to work with you from a fresher sense of being. This seven-year emphasizes introspection, facing suppressed emotions, analysis, intuition, reflection, seclusion, research, and FAITH. This is meant to be a quieter, “inner” year in which you can learn the answers to your most burning and often avoided questions.

Seek within and let the outside noise fall away. Lean in on the truth where you remain grounded and steadfast to the blessings of trust and unity. We as a collective can overcome what is open simply by releasing our fears and letting our inner Self guide us. Everything in this year seven is about the power of reflection. No matter how spiritually or materially ‘advanced’ you think you are, the reflective power of seven will expose a space in your life that can make you feel quite lonely. Accept that this emptiness exists, and you allow yourself to discover the fullness of your true capabilities. You see, that emptiness is your unfulfilled potential.

When deep emotions arise, feel them. Experience them. Do not deny them. If ill health occurs, it indicates that a buildup of unexpressed emotion is bursting to get out and may do so in the form of what we erroneously call depression. It is suppression – the ‘holding in’ of your emotions. Once these feelings have been recognized and released from your body, significant improvement will occur in your mental, physical, and emotional health. You cannot expect others to know what you are thinking or feeling, what is happening to you or to understand your moods and bouts of secrecy. They may think you are on a different wavelength entirely (which you are.) You may be difficult to approach or comprehend. No one can read your mind or feel your feelings.

So, instead of taking your relationships for granted, seek to understand them and communicate within those opportune moments that help you to share yourself for the greater whole.

Everyone in your life is now reflecting your reality to you. Their behaviors and attitudes can teach you a lot about yourself and provide vital information about what is happening in your life and on this planet. Beyond this living planet, we are connected to an entire universe brimming with life and energy that we cannot even imagine. Explore every aspect of your reality, and by the end of this year, there will be no doubt as to who and what you are and where you fit into the ever-changing kaleidoscope we call life.

2023 is a year of integration and soulful reflection. Make this year about self-realization; own your responsibilities here and take those energies on with compassion and gratitude. We will travel across unchartered waters this coming year, and how each of our designs our journey will impact what is shared in the total capacity of our union. Be discerning and hold within the compassion as faith leads us along this winding path. May your new year be whole and healthy, but even more so, may it be brilliant and treasured.

All my love,

Karen Ann
