Clear out the chaos to make space for clarity
Cozy up and let's talk New Year's resolutions. I never make them because more than 90% of resolutions fail.
Rather, I go through a ritual that sets my desires and makes space in my life for action.
My clients love this ritual, so I'm excited to share it with you below.
To change your life, you need to be super purpose-full.
What's working for you? What isn't? What do you want? What might hold you back? And how might you overcome those obstacles?
Amazing things can happen in one year – but you have to be intentional with your time, your energy, your money, your love, and your life to manifest them.
Intention makes the difference between life running you or you running life.
Intention is OWNING your POWER.
Intention sets you on PURPOSE.
Intention will make you HAPPIER.
So below is my annual New Year's ritual in the hopes that it brings you the same clarity, peace, hope, and energy it brings me and my clients.
Carve out 30 minutes for this exercise when you can have quiet time to reflect. Take this space for just you. Begin your quiet time taking 3 deep belly breaths – inhaling through your nostrils to a count of 5 and then exhaling slowly out of your mouth to 5. Let your body relax.
- LOVE: With your eyes closed, reflect on all that was really good in 2017. Begin with January, then February and March, etc. Then open your eyes and write down every moment of joy, good health, accolade, tenderness, and inspiration. Feel genuine gratitude in your heart and goodness in your smile and body as you write down each experience.
- LESSONS: Now close your eyes again, and think about the lessons you have learned this year. These lessons may have occurred through trial, trauma, or triumph. The cause isn’t as important to this exercise as the lesson itself. Write these down in your journal. Remember to have gratitude for the lesson so that you remember it going forward.
- LEAVE: Then, on a separate piece of paper, write every old pattern that held you back in 2017. The ones you are READY TO LEAVE BEHIND. For instance, I realize that I've been holding on to some old grudges this year and it's taken energy that would have been better spent on you, my clients, my community, my family, my life. So good riddance to those grudges. That victim mentality is not helping me any more. Now take the paper outside and light a match to it! Yep, good riddance!
4. LIGHT: Now, in your journal, write your intentions and desires for 2018. Don't write a typical “resolution” like, “lose weight,” or, “leave my job.” That focuses on the negative of what you don't want, and doesn't ground your brain in what you desire. Rather, be clear and specific about what you really, really, really, really desire – and why. For instance – to be so healthy that you can run easily with your children, to love your work so much that you feel alive and excited when you wake up, or to know your purpose so that you feel like you're making a difference and leaving a legacy.
SEE IT. Visualize what you want, even act it out.
FEEL IT. Feel the joy, love, or peace in every cell as if it's already happening.
BELIEVE IT. Make a mantra of it in the present, like, “I'm a Vice President” or “I love my book tour!”
GET SUPPORT FOR IT. We can't do anything alone. We weren't meant to. So who can help you? Who has achieved what you want? Who can coach and guide you? Reach out to them now.
ACT ON IT. Agree to one small step this weekend, knowing that every step toward the right dream matters.
I'd love to hear what you're leaving behind and what your LIGHT is for 2018! Post them in the comments below!AND…
If you are ready to activate your desires and create a path to clarity and courage in 2018…
I am opening up 5 spots in January for PRIVATE, 1:1 Activation Sessions!
Activation Sessions are powerful 90 minute sessions between just you and me where we go deep into your heart and soul for the answers that will lead to your happiest life. Together, we uncover self-created blocks, discover how to move past them, and design a path forward. Together, we ignite your best life.
These powerful Activation Sessions are for women who are tired of being stuck, who are ready to clarify their desires, who deeply desire to create a path to purpose, and crave the courage to move forward.
Here's what we do in an Activation Session:
- You fill out a form in advance to share your desires for our activation session and to share any important history that will inform me of your previous patterns.
- At the onset, we will get quiet, centered, and grounded so that we can hear your heart's true desires.
- I will lovingly ask probing, clarifying questions to help you clarify what you really, really, really want in 2018.
- We will uncover the deeper patterns and fears that hold you back so that you can overcome or remove them.
- I will reflect and mirror what I hear in your soul's longings and very human needs.
- I will lovingly, yet firmly, guide you to follow your truth.
- We will identify a course of action to realize your desires.
