My word from 2022
I became more intimate with my intuition, my bodies’ wisdom, my desires, my boundaries.
I became more intimate with wide swings of big emotions with a new puppy in the house.
I became more intimate with the pendulum swinging more broadly with finances. I became more intimate with trust, with receiving, with Divine God-Goddess light guiding my life. The depth of my intuition has been honed, as I’ve noticed in certain situations, in real-time, I tune in and speak from what the inner voice is saying. What used to require processing time after an interaction (sounded a lot like "oh I wish I would have said that!" or "that would have been witty!"), or feeling too awkward to pause in the moment, has now shifted to feeling much more natural, enjoyable, and powerful. For myself. For my clients. For my communication.
I’ve been shedding layers from myself for a few months now. There are many missteps, tears and learns from business, friendships, finances and more. I remained devoted to listening from within, and, more deliberate recognition of self, with grace and compassion through the heavy, constricted times.
New Years Eve is not a time I specifically ‘plan’ for, nor do I mind if I have social events to attend or not. I will go if invited and aligned. Or, I will stay home in my cozy pjs. I tend to like my regular bedtime. I like to bring in the year with the way I’d like to experience it. I meditate. I reflect. I nourish. I tidy. I have my Divine dialogue to receive my word for the incoming year.
Today, following a question on a post about ways to close out the year, this idea flowed in:
Choose 2 candles. Declutter your space. Prepare a warm beverage.
Light one candle, representing 2022, spend time reflecting, honoring and witnessing yourself for the wins and learns. When you feel complete, blow it out. Light the second candle to usher in 2023, ignite the feelings you desire to experience, gaze at the glowing flame and envision your desires as here and now. Being the whole, worthy, prosperous, joyful and peaceful human you inherently are, accepting that and feeling it saturate every cell of your body, with a smile on your face.
This practice served me immensely. I released density, healed, and my 2023 word dripped in. I felt held, supported, grounded and content with tingles of eagerness, all in the same moment.
I don’t think the New Year has to mean a “new you.” You may be in the midst of an ongoing shedding and re-defining, like me. You may be cycling with the seasons and traveling inward more intentionally. Or you may see the date as arbitrary, and follow the rhythms of your own heart for what is needed.
Coming to a close
Calling in anew
Wherever you are, you are where you are meant to be. Breathe.
Tune into your glorious inner intuitive voice, and ask the Divine for affirmations that will serve you today and in the year to come. And if you know me and my work, you know the next step: Speak them out with your voice. Amplify. Notice where in your voice range feels delightful and easy. Repeat, as if chanted, as many times as you'd like, getting carried by the sound, breath and body vibrations.
