Welcome to the first Energy Update for 2020! This time of year always carries with it a ‘review and renewal’ energy for people that’s been a tradition for decades. We take stock of the past year and we start to think ahead, but it’s also interesting that this month also is the beginning of a new calendar decade. Certainly, in terms of spiritual, energetic, astrological terms, the 2020 to 2030 decade is going to be a huge one. So it adds some weight to the ‘review’ energy that many of us will be feeling. There are five main themes coming up for January:
RISE OF THE MAGICAL
So as we enter 2020, thanks for tuning in and I hope you have a January full of grace, healing and magic.
Much love, Lee
Enjoy and be well, Everyone.

There are five main themes coming up for January:
- BLINDING CLARITY– a theme for the whole year of 2020 and it will be making its first big appearance this month.
- DRAMA HEALING – healing from dramatic events that have recently occurred or finding new ways to deal with what used to show up as drama in your life.
- COURSE CORRECTION– an energy that is going to come in very strongly in January and through early February. There will be a lot of opportunities for you to course correct.
- RISE OF THE MAGICAL – magical energy beginning to show up in your personal life at play and at work.
- ABUNDANCE – where the MAGICAL is concerned. People giving you experiences, things, and opportunities that you weren’t anticipating or didn’t know you could bring to yourself.
Welcome to the first Energy Update for 2020. This time of year always carries with it a ‘review and renewal’ energy for people that’s been a tradition for decades. We take stock of the past year and we start to think ahead, but it’s also interesting that this month is also the beginning of a new calendar decade. Certainly, in terms of spiritual, energetic, astrological terms, the 2020 to 2030 decade is going to be a huge one. So it adds some weight to the ‘review’ energy that many of us will be feeling.
In January, the first theme that came to share with you is Blinding Clarity and this also relates to the 2020 forecast (a 1-hour 11-minute detailed live video forecast, found HERE). Blinding clarity is going to be something that shows up time and time again throughout this year to come, and this can relate to many different aspects of life.
It can mean suddenly having clarity about your life as a whole or certain situations you are personally in, but equally, for many of us on the planet, it’s going to be us suddenly having truth revealed to us that we either weren’t ready to see, weren’t seeing, or weren’t expecting. It relates to outgrowing people, places and truths that used to hold and serve us, but are no longer needed where you are going next.
So, this blinding clarity can sometimes hit you like a ton of bricks and deliver a truth that is unexpected. It can be painful to process or very shocking at the time that it happens, but as time goes on, we become more able to take a long view of why those events come up for us and what it is they’re doing for our lives. For most everybody, we are being asked to move forward and to change at higher speed than ever before. This is also because the world is changing so fast; much faster than most of us in this body, this lifetime, have ever experienced before.
Blinding Clarity is driving change, and it is happening personally, collectively and in the world at large, and while there’s a lot that we can say about that, I mostly want to focus on how that’s going to feel to many of you personally. There is often an element of shock (or grief) and having to let go of the old when new clarity emerges. However, what may be newer for most of us, is the charge of energy that comes with it. When this blinding clarity hits you – either it will come through your internal awareness or it will show up through outside events. It’s going to have a charge unlike any other in your past and bring in an electrical energy to your field. It might make you know what you want to do immediately or feel this real sense of fire and wanting to act on something. It brings with it an energy of doing at high speed with less fear than before. In that sense it represents a breakthrough of old limitations.
Just try and be aware of that charge being something that’s going to come through you. It’s going to activate and elevate you, which is great, but as ever, be mindful about how you act on it. When we get very electrified, we tend to want to run out into the world and sometimes force our external circumstances to match the electrical feeling that we have inside us.
Sometimes that’s exactly what we need to do and sometimes that is how we make forward strides in life. We either previously haven’t had the courage to make or didn’t know that we could, but equally, it can be a chaotic way of doing things if we are trying to force things before they are ready.
If you are familiar with that ‘I need to make a change’ feeling and it starts brewing in you….:
- Let it sit with you for up to a few days if you can.
- Let it have some time to move through your body, mind and energy as you consider the changes you want to make.
- Let it stay in your system as long as you can before you make any big or dramatic actions, for that will help the outcome.
If you can’t do any of the above, and just need to go for it, then trust the propulsion energy is what you need to follow, BUT be aware that dramatic changes can make for dramatic reactions.
So the above considerations offer a new way to be mindful when that electrical charge comes in.
So if you can sit with it for a while, you’ll be able to feel, “Ah! This charge, this energy, it’s reshaping me inside myself.”
What can I practically do with this feeling and desire I have now, that is perhaps a smaller step and less impactful to my outside world while I build on and ground this energy in my body, heart and mind?
Blinding Clarity brings with it a big energy of transformation and if in this moment it looks like things are rearranging in you and around you, that’s where all your focus will go. But actually, if you look back a year from now or two years from now, you’ll see that what this blinding clarity is actually doing is propelling you into a higher place far beyond the current details you can see today.
It is moving you into a more aware place and more importantly, a more aligned place. You might be slowly being shifted into a reality where you’re actually more useful to that reality than the one you are in now. Your skills, talents, and abilities are more able to come out where you are going, and so might your feelings of being present in life and in love.
So, it can be a tricky time to navigate emotionally, because that level of blinding clarity and the transformation energy it carries with it, has a lot of big effects on our emotional relationships and connections with each other.
This leads me to my next theme, which is Drama Healing.
So this is interesting and I’ve never heard this as a theme before, but drama healing came in very strongly as a message for January, and we can look at this several different ways.
Drama healing can literally mean there is an actual drama in your life, (a physical, very dramatic event that can be sudden, painful, or toxic), but equally, it can mean that you are learning how to navigate out of and through dramas in a more peaceful, more stable way than ever before.
You may find yourself taking stock and look back at your life and go, “Wow, the last time this happened in my life or something like this, I did not react very well. It caused a huge outpouring of emotion or conflict in me and things were unstable for a while.” Many of you will notice that while drama healing can mean that yes, dramas are happening in your life to force and induce healing for you, it can also mean the opposite. That you yourself are seeing that you are no longer needing to play out the kind of 3D drama game in quite the same way that you were. And that can be a great gift and feel very liberating.
Many of you will notice this ‘Drama’ theme because you might be the compassionate ear or listener to someone else who is in one of those periods, and you may have compassion, because you remember being there yourself. Equally, there is a rise on the planet around emotional drama for people, as there is so much change happening at high speed which is putting more in touch with their feelings at deep level. And for many, that experience is like a shockwave running through mind and body.
And most of you reading this have probably been on your path for a while, so you may have been aware that this was always going to be an explosive time on the planet and a time of big changes.
Drama healing can also mean that if you’ve been through some big dramas in the last year or perhaps the last few years, there is going to be an energy of healing coming in for you now. So, you can really start to lean into that and start to begin to give yourself permission to recognize that the trauma can now be left behind you. That a slower period is upon you so that you can integrate. Equally, this will be a great time to go and get whatever kind of trauma therapy you really need, so that you can really work with your body for any shocks that it has been through, You don’t need to carry that with you or be running subconscious anxiety through your next few months.
And anxiety is a big theme and focus on the planet right now, so it is definitely something for everybody to look at and work with. Lots of people are feeling it, it’s in the air, so it might be something that you have to be mindful to not get involved in – the dramas of others with your emotional body.
Many empaths are beginning to learn, “Oh, great, I can hold space for other and I can listen, but I don’t have to run all their emotions through my body while I do that.”
Like for many of you, this lesson has definitely been a real learning curve for me personally over the years, and it takes focus, awareness and some digging deep to see where and why you began doing that in the first place. But this way of being is something that you will be starting to notice is changing energetically inside you as the months go on and January heralds a new beginning of that.
Course Correction is a theme we will be seeing in January and it is where you have made a choice, a decision or started to go in a certain path and then you get to change your mind or make a different choice. You could also be on the receiving end of someone else’s choice, so it may have resulted in shock or emotion for you.
Course Correction energy is going to come in very strongly in January and early February, so there are going to be a lot of opportunities for you to course correct in one of two ways:
Either the form of the choice you have made (or others have made) will be changed, meaning decisions made will be reversed or minds will be changed. Or if not the form of what ‘actually’ happened, the way you feel and get to move forward after these sudden changes will happen faster than usual because of the presence of this energy.
So, there’s a lot of intersection there around the themes of ‘Drama Healing’ and ‘Course Correction’, and sooner being able to feel open to where you find yourself, rather than to recoil or close off from it.
These are very tender times and the emotional surface of everybody is much closer to the skin. People are either showing up in beautiful vulnerability, authenticity and leaning on one another for support, being more open with each other than ever before. Or conversely, they are fighting, with judgment and defense against what’s going on or shutting down and pulling away. This is just the heart trying to protect itself from the shock, from the pain and conflict, and we can see that energy playing out on a world scale.
How we each deal with it, will be personal.
RISE OF THE MAGICAL
The other theme for this month is a pleasing one- it’s Rise of the Magical. We don’t just have The Rise of Skywalker in January (hello fellow Star Wars fans!), we also have the rise of the magical and it is going to show up in many different ways, but specifically in work and in play.
So for those of you who are very mission-focused – the work that you’re here to do, the mission that you’re here to have, you’re going to see a lot of magic and opening occurring in the kinds of relationships that you bring into your life to help you with your work. Perhaps, the magical will show up as just a new awareness of the good place that you’re in, because a lot of mission-focused sensitives, change makers, light workers are being really supported right now, because we need it.
This decade is going to bring a lot of challenge with it, but also a lot of positive energy around transformation. So you will be seeing a lot of magical synchronicity, connections, and opportunities coming up around the work that you do, the mission that you’re here for, but equally, play. This relates to this new level of connection, openness, vulnerability, and sharing that is available on the planet. It doesn’t mean you should sit at home and wait for it to knock at your door, we definitely have to be proactive.
We definitely have to recognize when we’ve been shut at home for too many years, and wonder why we feel isolated.
Isolation is one of the issues that we have now as a theme on the planet, so we have to take steps and make strides to walk out of isolation. I always say, start with making an affirmation of intent.
“I will bring more magical loving, wonderful friends into my life this year.”
“I invite wonderful new people to come into my life.”
Then back up that intention with some actions.
Put yourself in some scenarios where you might meet some people, to show you’re willing on the ground as well as in the energy realms.
With magical new energies and the rise of the magical showing up in work and at play, it can also boil down to you feeling more present than you ever have and being able to go, “Wow, even with all that crazy that’s going on in the world, I actually, in this moment feel more present, more conscious, more alive. In a few moments that might change again, but right now I actually feel more light and more alive than I ever have.”
That’s when you know magical energy, is in and around you and you are tapped in. When we talk about magical things happening, they are the things that induce that state and that we also attract more of when we are living more from that state. Magic, like heart energy, is a magnetic force.
Magical meetings and magical opportunities is where abundance comes in as our last theme in January. Abundance where the magical is concerned, with people giving you experiences, things, and opportunities that you perhaps weren’t anticipating or didn’t know that you could bring to yourself. So there’s a real thread of connection that’s beginning to happen for those who want to find each other, so be willing for that to come into your life too.
COMING INTO A NEW DECADE
To conclude, what we are doing in January is really opening new ways and energies for this coming decade. Most of us aren’t going to tune in on the next 10 years, which is okay, because that’s not where most of us work with our focus in our minds, but we are at the beginning of a very new decade and the energy is here now.
If you cast your mind back to 2010 and how you felt, especially, if you were one of those people who thought that 2012 was going to change everything overnight, or you weren’t quite sure about 2012 and there was some uncertainty, take a moment to look back at all that occurred for you in this past 10 years.
We’re in a much stronger time now in terms of collective awareness around active transformation on the planet, and there is actually less uncertainty around what is going to go on with our future now than there was in 2010. People are more aware than before of the needs we face at this time and we’re also more aware of the areas of crisis than we were in 2010. And awareness leads to change.
In 2010 there seemed to still be a lot of magical thinking in much of the spiritual community. Nothing wrong with that, but that changed after 2012, when people recognized we’re all still here being part of this 3D world yes, BUT with all the other dimensions we have available to us too. And sleeves are being rolled up by those who feel here to be part of this change era.
This recent era that we’ve been in has held plenty of death energy, in literal and metaphoric ways. I know of lots of people who have exited the planet in not just the last year, but even the last few months and I am hearing that reported from many others too. Death energy always brings with it transformation and new birth. As those left behind, have to shift and become someone new in the wake of a loved ones passing. So in that way, death creates a birth also.
So if you are still here on the planet my friend, you have something to do and/or something to be here for in the coming decade.
We’re at the beginning of a decade where a lot of new ways on the planet will open, and also new ways of being in you, in me, and in all of us as individuals. If you have a little nervous energy when I say that, that’s okay. It’s just an indicator that, yes, you’re in that change group, too. There are going to be some things or ways of being that you have to let go of in order to move into your next stages, but everything you’ve walked through has prepared you for the way you are right now.
So as we enter 2020, thanks for tuning in and I hope you have a January full of grace, healing and magic.
