A New Year is Just Around the Corner...
Are You Ready For It?

Imagine…you’re standing at the threshold of a new year. You catch glimpses of what might lie ahead – work, play, gatherings with family and friends, possibilities and new adventures that open your heart and hands to the invitation beckoning you forward…

BUT WAIT!

Before you move ahead, it’s important to review the past year and honour it as you would a sacred text – because it IS sacred – it’s your life story!

And remember, that no matter how much you plan, life may take you on unexpected detours and things won’t always turn out like you asked (the CoVid pandemic sure showed us how quickly things can change). Like many, you may have experienced grief, hardships and deep disappointments throughout the year – none of us are immune to those. But the moments of love, beauty, courage and resilience are to be treasured – they too are part of your journey.

What in your life is calling you,
when all the noise is silenced, the meetings adjourned...the old lists laid aside,
and the wild iris blooms by itself in the dark forest...

What still pulls on your soul?

~ Rumi

Take a moment to ponder these questions:

What stands out from the year before?

What feels undone? 

What still pulls on your soul?

Now – in this liminal space – is where honest reflection occurs, where dreams are resurrected, new ideas and possibilities allowed to emerge, and opportunities explored. Now is the time for letting go of the old stories that don’t serve you anymore. It’s time – time for planning and planting a new vision for the coming year.

Resolutions vs Intentions

Aren’t they the same thing, you ask? Go ahead, say each word out loud. Notice how they feel on your tongue, in your body. Can you sense the difference?

Resolutions come from a place of needing to fix something –  like a heavy burden that will inevitably be dropped –  followed by self-criticism and loathing about having failed yet again. It’s a lousy way to start the new year. 

On the other hand, intention feels softer: it allows for self-compassion and acceptance of where you are now in your life. It implies trust and a deep knowing that you have the ability to access an inner guidance and wisdom that will lead you to where you want to be.

Abandon Resolutions – Embrace Intentions!

The power of change comes from intention!

Create Your Best Year!

3 days of creative visioning -
Begin your year with intention!

what we'll do:

  • Reflect and review the year that is coming to a close;
  • Connect to what has grown and release the stories that no longer serve you;
  • Turn inward and engage in deep listening to discover what is wanting to reveal itself to you;
  • Identify and define the main areas of your life (i.e. health, community, etc) that you want to focus your attention on;
  • BE the gardener of your own well-being: gather meaningful words and images to plant as seeds for tomorrow’s unfolding;
  • Create an Intention Journal: a visual container for the creative  force that wants to flow to you and through you; a guiding light moving you towards the dreams, wisdom, and gifts of your own true becoming.

 

INTENTIONALLY choosing images and words that represent things you want to change or bring into your life aligns your attention and intention, and are more likely to come true.

Believe you can and you're halfway there!
