For many of us this year has had amazing and wondrous things show up in our lives and, we’ve also had our share of struggles and disappointments too.
Most people want to zoom ahead into the New Year and forget the mistakes and messiness from this year. But, there is SO much leverage to be gained from taking a look at the past twelve months and finding the wisdom that you can take with you into next year. When we acknowledge what we’ve learned from our experiences, we will know better the next time similar experiences show up. This can save us time, energy and unnecessary detours.
So often, we focus on what isn’t working, that we miss the important accomplishments, big or small, that we haven’t celebrated. I know for me there are some hard-won lessons I would rather not repeat and maybe we all have some emotional baggage that’s ready to go for once and for all.
While many year in review rituals seem quite intense and complex, this one is simple and direct.
Before you decide on your New Year resolutions or set life targets and goals for the next 12 months, I invite you to do this simple exercise. It’s a wonderful way to clear energies, thoughts or ideas that you’d rather not bring into the New Year.
Often when we let go of something we can truly see how it was holding us back.
It’s really easy to get started. Just grab your calendar, pen and paper, and set aside about 15 minutes, or longer if you feel guided. Some like to make a ritual around their review, with candles and incense and more time to meditate and/or reflect. Choose what works best for you.
These 3 simple questions help me clear my mental, emotional and spiritual levels and set me up for a strong start for the New Year:
