As you are all aware we have now entered a new year. 2017 is what is known as a one year (2+0+1+7=1).

This signifies it is a year of new beginnings, that can include, new jobs, new relationships, new lives, anything new really. So how does this relate to you? Well as we transition from last year to this there are a few things you can do to help you get your year off to the best start. In fact, what you do at the beginning of the year can help you to shape the rest of the year as it’s a super powerful thing to do.

So here are a few things I suggest you think about doing during this new year period.

Number one is to de-clutter, de-clutter, de-clutter.

 

Now I know you will have heard me going on about this towards the end of last year and I am still going on about it now. Well, that’s because it is super powerful and super important. You will have heard me say before about how we hold on to items as memories, and how excessive items stagnate energy in the home. So remember memories are stored in your mind not items, so it is OK to throw out those unwanted gifts or better still pay them forward, gift them to others. Whatever you do don’t leave them in a top draw for another day because that day never comes and you will end up with draws full of stuff.

Secondly, consider taking the time to clear the energy in your home.

 

Over the festive period, we often have people over or family visiting and this can affect the energy in your home. The best way to effectively clear that energy is to burn white sage or Paulo Santo around the home to clear the space. There are other ways you can do this if you don’t want to burn incense or smudging sticks. Have a look here to find other suggestions.

Thirdly I suggest that you set some kind of intentions for this year.

 

Similar to the intentions I encourage you to set with the new moon. These intentions are setting the scene for the year and helping you to tell the Universe what it is you would like to happen throughout the year. What you would like to experience, how you would like to feel. Remember that connecting to the feelings is key. That is what strengthens your intentions and helps you to achieve them quicker. So whether you use intentions or some other form of communication try to be clear and communicate with the Universe about what you would like the year to be like.

Finally, I would suggest that you take the time to review and release.

 

Briefly look at the previous year, what worked, what didn’t, what brought you joy, what felt challenging. Then set about trying to make things different this year. Release all those thoughts and feelings that no longer serve you by listing them on paper and burning them (safely). Releasing them to the Universe and thanking the Universe for helping you to release those things that no longer serve your greatest good.

Try to think about your big dream and what you are working towards, this will give you a general focus and direction. It will also help you set your intentions as they are probably steps towards your big dream.

 

Don’t become overwhelmed or fearful as these emotions will see you remain stuck.

 

Try to see your dream as made up of small steps. Just focus on taking the small steps and together lots of small steps accumulate into big action, So although you have your eye on the big dream, keep your focus mainly on the small steps. Making changes in this way makes things feel more manageable and less overwhelming.

Wishing you the best of luck with this process and may 2017 be your best year yet. I am happy to help and support you with this process if you need help, just get in touch,

Bye for now,

Much love & Spirit sparkle,
