As I sit here contemplating the energy of the new year I’m definitely feeling good about a new start. I'm a snake and snakes love to shed their skins and start again so the new year feels good, new beginnings and new plans bring a feeling of renewed energy. Yet I'm getting a strong sense of how important it is not to throw the baby out with the bath water. This was one of my mother's mantras to me when as growing up as I would leap from one exiting adventure to the next. As I’ve grown older, and a little more sensible and I hope wiser, I now really understand this. You see, it's important we put time aside to stay still and value the roads we have travelled before we try and run ahead on to the next plans. Why is this important? Well this is what I think……
I'm a big visioned, big dreaming kind of gal, I love a project, I love self development and soul work the more beautiful and exciting the better, yet I can easily get carried away with myself and trip myself up in the process or just not really take heed on how far I’ve come. You see, ambition and vision is limitless, it goes on the endless amazing things we could be doing with our lives and the deep healing we can do on ourselves, it's really easy to not notice that in actual fact we have achieved a lot already and how well we are doing. Even the most successful people in the world feel like this because, in actual fact, the path of transformation and self development is never-ending, which means we only really stop when we die and there are scripts that imply that the soul work we do in our lives, we carry on into our next any way, so really the journey truly is endless.
How do we make sure that the energy we are moving forward with is a loving and gentle energy, as opposed to a self loathing energy? We have to take some time and listen to those words we're saying to ourselves. We have to check in to see if they are kind and compassionate, if were saying lovely things to ourselves or not as the case maybe. You see, believe it our not, we have to be our own biggest cheerleader, we have to back our own team with all our hearts and if we're not then we are doing more damage to ourselves than any one else in the whole world has the ability to do. So it's so so important to become the bouncer of your thoughts and don't let any undermining or unkind thoughts come through the door.
I like to spend some time looking at what I’ve achieved, no matter how big or small. The tough things we've survived and grown from and the amazing miraculous things we've achieved. When we decided to move forward from a place of self-acknowledgement it's so much more powerful than the energy of not enough.
This just leaves me to say, whatever you're planning and dreaming for this new year, I wish you so much luck. Remember to leave some space for the magic to unfold, it doesn't matter how much we try to plan and work things out, they often have a habit of going in their own direction as well and that's OK. Just love yourself every part, even the messed up bits, the fuzzy confused parts, and trust that there is a twinkle inside so bright that it will guide you on your way. Don't forget that clothes and your style are a huge tool to help you manifest your heart's desires so whatever you're wishing for this new year, make sure you keep your wiggle on!
