The New Year is just around the corner along with the tradition of making resolutions, which are usually promises to do something “more, better, or different.” We vow to exercise more, get a better job, meditate regularly, fall in love, or find a different way to handle our stress. But does this really do us any good? Most of us start the New Year with the greatest of intentions, yet by March (or even by the second week in January) we may not find ourselves so resolved. We revert back to old patterns and beat ourselves up for not sticking to our resolutions. Could there be a way to ring in 2016 that serves us better?
YES! And it has been my New Year ritual for the past ten years. But first I want to invite you to my annual goal and intention setting workshop on 1/5. Join us live or online. All the details for that here.
And now onto the ritual . . . in the video I walk you through it and explain what MUST happen for it to be effective (you have to watch the video to get that part!).
As a holiday gift to you, I recorded a free guided Holiday meditation on my podcast this week you can download here. Use this meditation to access all the love around you.
This time of year is different for everyone. Some of you may be absolutely blissful – you love this season and are in a place of peace. Others of you may be struggling. Perhaps you feel alone. Or family dynamics are challenging. And some of you may be feeling a mix of both. You have moments of peace and joy; and other moments of loneliness, anxiety or even sadness. Continue reading →
I love the week of Thanksgiving because gratitude is on everyone’s mind. When we are aware of what we do have, we are a lot less inclined to obsess about all the things we don’t. Cultivating a consciousness of gratitude is a spiritual practice – it’s a MUST for anyone who is committed to living a life of love.
My personal gratitude practice consists of an evening gratitude ritual that I have done for years. Every night before I go to bed, I write a list of things that happened that day that I am particularly grateful for. Things like a rockstar parking spot, magical moments of serendipity, a fabulous meal, a laugh with a friend, or noticing an old pattern or trigger come up that offers me an opportunity to work my process. My gratitude journal (which I share with you in the video) is also a wonderful way to keep a diary of my life. I love looking back through it to reflect on past moments and celebrate lessons and blessings.
This is your invitation to one of my very favorite weekends of the year: My signature retreat January 8-10th. This three-day retreat was created from work that changed my life and enabled me to live the incredibly fulfilling life I live today.
I want the same for you. I want you to love what you do, love who you are with, love your body, and LOVE WHO YOU ARE.
I know it’s possible for you because I’ve seen the instant and lasting transformations of the women who have attended in the past.
