I believe there is a lot to be said about the way we end and begin each year. Yes, there are those who say it's a date just like any other, but in my opinion it's an opportunity to reflect on the year that was, while getting crystal clear on what you want to manifest in the year ahead.
While most people might think that the best way to do this is just to make a new dream board and write a big list of goals, there are other key actions that you can apply to make the law of attraction work more powerfully for you.
Here is my 3 Step Process to Set Powerful Intentions for 2017
- Complete your unfinished business. What bills need to be paid? What light bulb needs changing? What clothes need to be donated? Even though these tasks might not actually appear on your written to-do list, they appear on your vibrational to-do list, and the universe knows no difference. Think of it like energetic clutter preventing you from freeing up the space you need to manifest the new.
This is especially important this year as 2016 is a numerology universal year 9 which is all about endings.
The best way to complete your unfinished business is to set a day aside put everything onto paper and then take action on the most important tasks. What things don't you want to carry over to 2017? If its debt then make sure you get all of your bills paid, if it's lack of self confidence then throw away clothes that make you feel less than amazing.
Whatever you decide, remember, the universe abhors a vacuum ;)
2. Reflect and celebrate. So many people are quick to want to jump into the next year in the hopes that it will be better than the last. The problem with this is, if you do nothing to realise and appreciate the greatness of what you've just experienced, chances are the next year is going to be pretty much the same.
If you have had a difficult year ask yourself, where was the gift? In every difficult situation we face there is always an opportunity for growth. This is why we are here as spiritual beings in the first place.
Maybe you got fired from your job but it enabled you to discover what your true passion is? Whatever your experience was, look for the gift, see it with new eyes and change your perspective so you enter 2017 with positive mindset and high vibration.
On the contrary, if you feel like you smashed it in 2016 then celebrate! Champagne is always a good choice but if you want to revel in the vibration of appreciation longer then create a collage of photos that highlight all the achievements you made. The process of going through your photos and making this type of shrine is a fantastic way to attract more of that success to you in 2017!
3. Plant your seeds of intention for 2017. I believe the most powerful way to do this is to put your focus on who you want to be and how you want to feel as opposed to what you want to get. Don't get me wrong, I'll be putting an LV bag up on my dream board but on January 1st it won't be the thing that commands all of my attention.
Instead I will be setting aside 15 minutes to really feel into and imagine what I want my life to be like next year and how it is my soul wants to show up.
How can I inspire more women to live as powerful creators? How can I be a better coach, sister, daughter, friend and fiancé? How do I want to feel in 2017?
Once I have created that vision in my mind I will begin to list my intentions for the year ahead. I will not be focusing on SMART goals or trying to achieve 50 different things, instead I will let my intentions come from my soul. They could be anything from sleeping peacefully to laughing more.
