Historically human beings calculated time by observing the periods of light and darkness. The solar day is considered to be the earliest form of calendar, however whatever your internal calendar is for a new beginning mine starts on the 1st January. I love coming into January and my calendar year starts now!
Even though we are in the midst of winter and even though it seems an awfully long way to go to spring. For me, it’s the thought of a New Year, expanding daylight, the opportunity to begin again, to do things differently, learning from the past to make my present and future even healthier, to fine tune that which needs to change so life is even better than before.
I don’t really go for New Years resolutions as such, I go for the long term. The wave of positive energy at this time of year can give you real clarity if you pay attention. Many people start to think about New Years resolutions, so this positive energy is in the air. Use this wave of energy to give you a clear path for planning your next year of adventure through life.
I simply start by thinking about an overall theme for my year ahead. I think of a word that holds the energy of what I want to achieve in the coming year. It is a word that underpins the essence of the theme, a resonance at every level that defines how it would feel to achieve the meaning of this word for me. So, it is your mindset that matters right now…
Your mindset is a good place to start…
Dreaming your life into the positive, not hanging on to the negative. Create your dreams on a vision board, which becomes a daily reminder of the essence of what you want out of life. See how to create your vision board below.
Take a look at your beliefs and behaviours, what is holding you back? Is it something from your past that needs clearing, or something in your present that is causing a disturbance? If you contact me via my website I will send you a complementary worksheet for you to work through or you can book an appointment with me to help you discover what is hindering you from succeeding in your life, relationships or business.
Use positive affirmations to change how you feel. Positive affirmations are a way of creating a new pattern in the conscious mind that will form into a new pattern in the sub conscious. They also create the right energy to align with your dreams. Consistency is the key here, say your affirmation out loud (softly) for at least 10 minutes (yes 10 minutes!), a couple of times a day. I do it when I am out for a walk or when I wake up in the morning and before going to bed.
If you love to have goals, then be realistic and set yourself up to succeed. I work on a 3 month business and life cycle, this way you can achieve more without being overwhelmed of constantly thinking too much into the future, yet everything you do within this time period is towards your bigger picture, step by step. However, also get the bigger picture in place, what kind of a life do you want to live, how do you want to feel everyday. Where do you want to be in 2 years, 5 years and 10 years time. What kind of work do you want to be doing, where will your business be, how is your health and where would you like to live, what kind of people do you want to surround yourself with…. I could go on.
Get some help to clear the patterns of your past that are hindering your future. Polarity therapy sessions are fantastic for clearing these unhelpful patterns.
Engage a business and life coach to help you achieve a business and life that you want. If you are feeling stuck, lacking motivation, confidence or simply don’t know where to start I offer a complementary discovery call to see if I am the right coach for you.
How to create your vision board:
- Get hold of lots of different types of magazines.
- Get yourself an A3 size board, one that will allow you to stick things onto it.
- Get yourself some glue and a pair of scissors.
- Make sure you are undisturbed for at least an hour and take a couple of deep breaths in and release out.
- At the top of your board, write your Word for the year.
- Now start dreaming of your life and sift through the magazines. Cut out any pictures or words that resonate with you, that you really like or that jump out of you.
- As you find the pictures stick them on your board – (it may not make sense as you do it, but just let it flow).
- Be creative, there is no pattern to this, just stay in the moment.
When you have finished, take a look at what you have created – you might just be surprised!
