This time we are in between Christmas and New Years, some call "The Holy Days" is a wonderful time to reflect on the passing year. I love to create a ritual space to enhance my experience by carving out some quiet time alone at my alter with a cup of tea and my journal. I start by clearing my space smudging with some sage, then light a candle. After enjoying a short movement practice to release stagnant energy and open my body, I settle in finding a comfortable seated position. Sometimes I like to spend a few moments rhythmically playing a rattle, as I sing my gratitude and prayers for guidance. Now that I am more open and connected deeper within myself & spirit, I sit in silent meditation for some period of time, until I feel complete then I ask myself questions such as;
What did I do well or what am I proud of?
What did not go well or what do I wish I could do-over?
What activities sustained me?
Where did I resist change?
Where did I grow?
What lessons did I learn?
What aspirations do I have for 2024?
If you haven't yet done some version of this, I encourage you to take some time today or tomorrow to do so. The threshold of a New Year is such a potent time to reflect and create positive change in your life!
One mistake I often see people make when writing 'New Years Resolutions' is biting off more than they can chew as the expression goes. While it's wonderful to dream big, sometimes we create a goal that is too big a leap for our system to handle. What I have found is that by breaking my goals down into smaller increments allows me to experience success along the way, the feeling of accomplishment fuels the momentum to go to the next level of success.
I'm excited to share two offerings this New Year to guide and support you in this process of success for your 2024 goals and aspirations!
