Did you know that spiritually 2018 has been a year of enormous challenge at a planetary level and an ending of a significant karmic cycle ? Most people I know have had to embrace big shifts in their life and I mean BIG.
Most of us have needed to show up with deeper levels of courage and commitment, as we let go of old patterns and paradigms that have passed their “use by” date.
Some clients have left long term careers, have faced life threatening illness for themselves or a partner, have realised their biggest blockages to self love, have taken big strides in creating their authentic life, have quit addictions and more……………. 2018 has been the end of a big karmic cycle.
As I scrolled through the pics on my I Phone recently, I realised that this year has been HUGE both in terms of travel and experiences, growth opportunities and new ways of being in the world. I was also aware that I hadn’t really fully reflected on the learnings that this year has brought me.
So lets all do that shall we. ? Let’s take a little more time to “smell the roses” and put this year to bed in a way that is self honouring and uplifting.
Yes, you may look back and say to yourself “ maybe I could have done more or done something differently” BUT forget that one, it’s an old mind based tape that keeps us stuck in our negative ego. And who need that anymore ??
I want you to ask your soul (higher self) these 6 questions instead, to end the year on a happy, healthy, beautiful note !
Here we go, get that journal or computer out and lets start this reflection ! If you close your eyes and silently ask yourself these questions your answers will be deeper and probably more revealing.
Did you give love and kindness to anyone this year including yourself ? Remember at least 3 or more people you have given kindness to this year.
What personal wins or highlights did you experience this year ? What did you learn about yourself ? (maybe you let go of a limiting habit, or maybe you got better at acknowledging yourself or honed your skills in your work, or became more aware of what you truly want for your life etc )
What would your wise 100 year old self want to say to you right now ? Write a letter from her or a few words of wisdom. This is such a beautiful exercise.
Have you gained more self belief and self love this year ?
Who do you need to thank for making your year better, easier and more successful ?
What would you like to call into your life in 2019 ? What do you intend to create in your life in 2019 ? How do you intend to contribute to others and the world around you ? and How do you want to celebrate your life throughout 2019 ?
Have a magnificent week and remember BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, STAY INSPIRED, GET THE SUPPORT YOU NEED and KEEP STEPPING FORWARD BECAUSE EVERYDAY YOU ARE LIVING YOU ARE CREATING YOUR MOST BEAUTIFUL LIFE.
REMEMBER TO CELEBRATE !
Love and blessings
