Welcome to 2012! This year promises to be transformative on every level. Our planet is shifting in powerful ways and that is because more of us are willing to claim the life we want. Brave people everywhere are standing up to be heard, demanding to be treated fairly and ethically. And the planet is forcing us to think more holistically about how we impact her and each other.
It is in this spirit that I am launching Soul School. This blog and site is my way of being of service. My intention is to support the growth and development of anyone who wants to transform some aspect of his or her life. This site is holistic, bringing together useful information, tips and strategies for all areas of your life, while drawing on the best from a wide range of practices.
On this first day of 2012, take the time to set your intentions. Intentions are powerful because you are claiming what you want to manifest, and in doing so, the universe can rise up to support you. You can read more about how to write intentions in the Wellness Toolbox area of this site. Be sure you think about all areas:
- How do you want to treat yourself in 2012? What self care best supports you?
- What do want to experience in your career? In what ways can you be of service to others?
- How do you want to feel in your relationships? Is there any healing or forgiveness that needs to occur?
- In what ways do you express your creativity? How can you create time to play?
These are just a few considerations. Every year, I set 10-20 intentions, attending to each area of my life in the Wheel of Wellbeing. Start this year with a clear vision for the life you want to create.
Also think about what you want to let go. This morning,we did a burning bowl ritual at my spiritual center. We each wrote on paper the things we wanted to release — old beliefs, ways of being, anger, limiting thoughts or habits, anything that is not going to serve us. We then burned them, watching the fire transmute the paper into ash. It was beautiful and powerful. I encourage you to do the same — think about what what you need to let go of, and then create a ritual to do so. And there’s still time! The 2nd or 3rd of January is just as good a time as any to claim your vision for your future.
I’ll be blogging at least once per week and also offering in-person workshops and video lessons. I am honored to be part of your support team.
