Words / Mantras Of The Year
2019 : : (residing) In Love
I mean this in every way imaginable.
I know from experience just how interesting committing to a theme, a philosophy, a mantra or a word can be. Life sure has a sense of humour. In years passed I have cursed the wicked and cunning ways it seems to draw what I want out of me. I choose resilience? Then life throws curveball after curveball at me so that I develop an extraordinary amount of resilience. Thanks a bunch!
Be careful what you wish for people! :o)
If I am to stay inside of Love then fear will need to be faced and cleared - constantly / frequently - so I may well be challenged in a multitude of ways this year, and tempted to be sidetracked by fear, anger, frustration, irritation - any and all things that are NOT love. Fear and Love cannot occupy the same space at the same time. They are opposing forces.
I am as prepared as I can be for Great Mystery to bring this concept to life for me and I will endeavour to be brave and to stay my course. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, aka Tapping) will be my friend, and the tool I use daily to clear any and all blocks to Love.
Wish me luck!
As always, I love to hear your theme / mantra / word of the year if you have chosen one as your way of moving consciously through your life and cultivating the kind of life you choose and desire. To do so, scroll just passed my annual themes and you'll see the icon for dropping me an email. xxx
2018 : Cultivating Kindness
Inviting, welcoming and directing kindness towards myself.
Demonstrating, encouraging and focusing on kindness with others.
Allowing kindness to be my guide in all things.
Creating environments in which kindness thrives.
And always remembering to treat myself with the same gentleness I am offering others; knowing that such kindness is the foundation upon which I grow my new life and business, as I transition from a nomadic existence as a full time house and pet sitter, to living in a place of my own again - My 'Heart Hub Home' - growing my Coaching, Healing and Art business 'Nomad Dreams' ; a business whose core motivation is encouraging kindness (& intuition & creativity) while we navigate life's changes, challenges, and personal growth/expansion.
2017 : LOVE AND PASSION!
My new words found me at last! With the exception of 2015, my next guiding phrase has always come to me by the November of the previous year.
So I spent two years with Courage Over Comfort, (which was so very needed!) but then my usual timetable seemed to find me again.
In November of 2016 here I am adding Love And Passion to the mix.
These will guide me throughout 2017, while still holding close to my heart Courage, and Wildness and Freedom and Sparkle.
2016 : COURAGE OVER COMFORT
It feels right to stick with this one for the moment. As soon as something new comes knocking at my door, I will let you know... (Yep. I ended up with this as my guide for a year and half)
2015 : COURAGE OVER COMFORT
This works. I mean, really works. Yes I am choosing courage more often than I am choosing comfort... and maybe I have found my sparkle again too now!
2014 : WILD & FREE
Simplifying my life and hitting the road by the end of the year was *not* something I was expecting! Wild and Free much?? Oh hells yeah!
2013 : SPARKLE
Boyee did I find this tricky. I was not quite ready yet, but the seeds had been sown.
