I implore you.
Hold yourself a grand vision for 2017! And from this vision get a feeling of what would be fun and exciting in being a part of this new year, after all, 2017 is becoming known as The Year of Fulfillment.
Before you start to set goals for yourself for the year, which are usually generated all from your mind; get beneath that chatter and let your Soul lead you.
I usually start this process in November and continue through December, staying within and asking my Self a lot of questions, and wait for the answers to arise from within me.
So I will ask myself: Where would you like to see yourself Going? What would you like to be Doing? How would you like to feel yourself Being? What new thing would you like to experience? What would you like 2017 to feel like?
Once I have felt into these questions, I then take each month of the year and I list out what I may enjoy attracting or achieving for myself. Yes, this sounds like goals, but these aren't goals created by the mind. They are pulling at you from your Soul. You simply feel called to do these things, to go to these places, to meet certain folks. It may not make sense at first, but it goes along with your vision from your Soul, and it feels like LOVE pulling you along.
This true vision is your reason for living. It is what makes you come alive. And the things you wish to experience or achieve each month feel playful. They come from living in connection to a natural flow of things unfolding.
For example: You wake up and have a flash in your vision of a restaurant. You don't know why, but you feel called to stop there for breakfast on the way to work. So you go. Carrying in your heart all those goals you listed that you wish to have unfold in 2017. Upon sitting at the counter you realize the person next to you is someone you have been wanting to connect with...and Shazam!... you are off and running in the flow, and moving in the direction of your vision that wishes to grow.
I find this technique of Vision Holding to be a powerful way of looking at 2017, and to be much more interactive than making a bunch of lists from my mind, and then hold my nose to the grindstone.
This Vision Holding - the knowing of WHY I do what I do and what I want to see unfold each year - keeps me tuned into myself and my inner wisdom. This allows my Soul to move me into my next steps.
What's your vision for 2017?
