As you’ve probably heard, this New Year’s Day is punctuated with helpful astrological forces including a New Moon to catapult us beyond the habits of the past and into the terrain of fresh, clean starts.
Give yourself some time and space today to meditate on the following:
Your Keyword for 2014: This is a word (or words) that will be your guiding light throughout the year. The energy of this channel will color everything you experience, so choose wisely. Life will provide what you need to clear the channel, make it stronger, and express it in your daily life. Last year my keyword was “Alignment” and this year it is the phrase “Be in Love.”
6-12 Statements of Intent: These aren’t resolutions or problems to be fixed. These are things aligned with your heart’s desire to be made manifest in 2014. You may want to start them with “This is the year…” and keep the statements somewhat general. It is such a thrill at the end of a year to review these statement and see how Life responded. Indeed, from my list of 12 statements last year, 10 of them were fully realized and the remaining 2 are still works in progress. Amazing! For example, for 2013, I wrote:
This is the year I discover the reflection of love. Someone, or someones, love me for who I am and just as I am.
In April, I met my now husband. My statement was not about finding a partner. It was very open to any reflection of love. And meeting my husband was not the only way this statement manifested either; it came through in other ways as well. So don’t write yourself into a box.
Once you have your keyword and several statements of intent, write them in a journal or on the computer…somewhere safe where you can refer back to them at six months and again at the end of the year. You can always add or change things at any time.
With your words committed to paper, close your eyes and go into your heart. Allow the sound of “AH” to resonate internally…building slowly in intensity until it arises forth from your voice. Allow the sound of “AH” to saturate your words, enfolding each one in perfect love and wisdom.
Breathe and bless yourself.
Happy New Beginnings!
