Taking a Risk

There is a new year approaching and with it brings the magical possibilities of the unknown and a whole new year of adventure.

For anyone wanting to learn more about the Master number 11 please see this link



Why is this important well I know next year adds up to the number four numerologically but the 11 is jumping out at me like a beacon, you see I am an 11/2 numerologically and I can’t help feeling that next year is about diving into the unknown wholly completely and without reservations or fear as well as embodying the lessons people of that number need to learn.

Just as this year has been about laying the past to rest, healing the inner hurts and anxieties we have held onto and stepping into our personal power I feel next year heralds a new beginning but not in the whole clean slate start over way but in the way of big world changes there is a shift in consciousness it is already approaching critical mass we can flow with the changes jump into the void and float through them or we can be dragged through kicking and screaming and fighting it all the way.

We are the ones making the choice, I choose to flow, to dive in head first like all those years ago as a child on a sunny day into our often freezing cold salt water pool being the first one in and relishing in the jarring coldness of it. I have never been a” just one toe in the water at a time” type of person and I know when I try to be I become unhappy and it is far worse than diving right in. I have always been and continue to be a learn by doing kind of woman and on many occasions a fly by the seat of my pants and just hold on for dear life type of one.

The best things in life involve risk and the hardest risk to take are the risks not always of a financial or other such nature but the ones that mean the most following our dreams, going after something we want and the greatest risk of all LOVE.

It takes true courage to follow your dreams along with passion and tenacity there is always a time when to know to forge ahead and when to let them go. Not all of our dreams become reality and there are reasons for that sometimes we learn just from the journey all we needed to know, sometimes we surrender when just a little more persistence may have paid off.

Have you stopped and asked yourself deeply truthfully and honestly what you want from life or what your dreams are lately?

So often we spend so much time focused on the everyday dramas, caught up in the lives of loved ones or just wasting time trying not to think about these things that we forget to ask ourselves what our dreams are and how they have grown and changed. We also find new dreams.


And what of the greatest risk to ourselves, our emotional wellbeing, and our hearts: LOVE?

This is a tricky minefield at times

For those of you who remember the cookie analogy which at the heart and core of is that we need to be whole and complete within ourselves before we can be with another whole complete person looking for someone as a missing half of you or to complete you is asking for disaster.

Another important thing to note is that you really need to know that happiness comes from within you and it isn’t up to someone else to make you happy !If you’re not happy from the inside out no one is going to be able to keep you happy long term. Love should enhance your own inner happiness not be an antidote to your own sadness.

Love is an amazing gift but a gift that can only truly be felt and received in any great depth after at times knowing tremendous sorrow and grief, when it is radiated from the inside out and when it is given freely and openly without expectation or judgement.

Loving someone is a huge risk because we can get hurt.  We often hurt each other when we love each other.

The lesson we learn here is to communicate, to recognise when we are taking out past hurts on the other person, to let our anger out but remember to also let it go and not hold grudges. To talk and talk and talk, I have always loved the whole you should never go to bed angry thing and I do believe in a strong relationship you shouldn’t. Anger has a way of infesting our souls and becoming a way of life dragging us down a negative path but anger can also be extremely freeing and liberating not to mention cleansing when it is allowed to wash over us serve its purpose and be released. It is holding onto anger that causes resentment and hurt.

There is also a time and a place for everything and the best time to work on your issues is when you are single, although some issues will not rear their ugly heads until in the midst of a relationship so it is knowing yourself and trusting your partner enough to recognise what it is that triggered it and to talk about it. This is something we learn by practicing not something that always comes naturally so it might take time to see the patterns.


“To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.” – Author Unknown

And thus it becomes that love is our biggest gamble and biggest risk letting someone into our hearts, our minds, our souls, and our bodies is a huge risk on so many levels

But if you don’t dive in and take the risk if you stand at the shallow end dipping your toes in the water wondering watching waiting… looking at others having a wonderful and not so wonderful time. You miss out on life’s greatest adventure a gift that when given multiplies and ebbs back and forth like waves on the shores of the ocean. When it is given and returned buoys the spirit, lifts the heart and makes angels weep in pure joy.

And that my friend is worth the risk!

“Love is a gift meant to be given and shared not locked away and hoarded till it’s in disrepair “ACM

Till next we meet on life’s journey open your heart, allow love to flow freely not just from you but accept the gift from others as well and see how such a small change can be balm for a weary soul.


In love and Light



About heavenlyimaginings

A crafter from the time I was a small child. My love of crafting has developed into a passion for making Artist Original Bears, Scrapbooking, making fascinators and hair accessories, as well as dabbling in other bits and pieces such as making the occasional small bag. I craft on a budget. Try and reuse and recycle where I can (I wish I lived closer to a big reverse cycle garbage type place). In truth I play when I craft. It is such an adventure. Often do not spend time looking for tutorials and tips online preffering to meander though in my own way. After all if you do not know the rules then you have no problems breaking all of them. Have to be honest and say I truly love being pushed out of my creative comfort zone, as it is in those moments that you have to stretch yourself and your imagination that often you create the most amazing works of art. Also passionate about Spirituality. I discovered my psychic gifts at age 19 and have walked along the spiritual path for 19 years now.
