Where has this year gone? There is something magical about this time of the year. This is a sacred time for self reflection, celebration and a time to express and share love. Before looking ahead to the new year, let’s spend some time reflecting on this year.
Take yourself to your favourite place where you reflect and recharge, relax with a beautiful herbal tea, out in nature or cosy on the couch. There is no better way to reflect than in your journal, where you can reach the deepest parts of yourself and feel free to express and release from any expectations and just be.
Jotting down your thoughts and dreams is incredibly healing and clears the mind for new, beautiful ideas to enter. Your journal can be used as your own personal vision board, and write down all of the things you want for your life as a reminder to stay true to yourself, your desires, and your heart. Your journal allows you the opportunity to reflect and see how far you’ve come while also facilitating private conversations that help you go deeper into your true self.
Let’s spend some time reflecting on 2015, grab your cup of tea and plant your beautiful soul in a comfortable, grounding position, relax your body and reflect.
Reflection time for 2015. Questions to ask yourself;
What are you thankful for?
What am I most proud of?
When did I feel the most inspired throughout the year?
What projects have I completed?
What lessons have I learned?
How well did I nurture my mind, body and spirit?
Were you surprised by what you have achieved? Are you able to see how far you have come? Write a letter to yourself, list down your achievements, feel proud and acknowledge yourself for where you are in your life, and remember to base these achievements off your own personal experience, everyones version of achievement looks different and that is exactly the way it should be.
Take your time with the process, allow yourself to be guided by your intuition as you reflect and asking yourself these questions. Be guided by your infinite intelligence. Once you have processed 2015 and acknowledged your process and celebrated all that you are grateful for, let’s spend some time reflecting on the new year.
Reflection time for the year ahead, 2016. Questions to ask yourself;
What do you want to work towards this coming year?
What type of person do you want to become?
What old habits would I like to release?
What new habits would I like to cultivate?
Where am I feeling stuck?
Am I happy in my life right now?
Do I love waking up everyday, doing the work I do?
How can I be more kind to myself?
Where is it time in your life to let go?
Take your time doing this, you want to create change and growth in 2016.
Towards the end of the year we can often feel exhausted, tuning in, overcoming challenges and pushing through the discomfort is hugely important but this needs to be balanced with light hearted fun. Spend some time over the Christmas and New Year holidays letting your hair down, laughing with friends and family, watch some great comedies, check out that park you drive past everyday or go sight seeing in your own city. Shake off all that seriousness, we can very easily consume ourselves in overtime. Give yourself the benefit of time to reflect, allow yourself time to celebrate the current year before racing ahead into action. It’s time to recharge and renew the batteries.
The New Year always brings with it motivation and inspiration to make improvements in our life. Most of us have good intentions when planning out our hopes for the new year but following through is the hard part and sticking to it is even harder!
When it comes to setting your goals, sometimes we hit what I like to call terror barrier. We go beyond our comfort zone, we get scared and revert back to our old patterns which although no longer serve us, feel safe and comfortable. This is a natural tendency so it is perfectly ok.
However, if we don’t do something about it, and we don’t learn to wade through the discomfort, we will never overcome those old beliefs and patterns that are holding us back from our true potential. Those big goals that mean so much to us are achievable and you deserve to experience them.
I would love to help you break through your terror barrier and reach all of your goals. If you are ready to start planning 2016, email me and we can set up a complimentary call right away.
Remember, you are are spiritual being having a human experience and with your intuition guiding you through life the whole journey is just so much more loving and fun. Allow your intuition to guide you through this process.
Much love and blessings,
