Nose with a face – the hag at work!
Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful start into 2014.
All of a sudden, we have this whole new year ahead of us, full of possibilities. I’m making plans, setting intentions, writing down goals, and consulting my Tarot cards. I love the magic of new beginnings, I think it’s fair to say that I’m addicted to them. They inspire me. It’s the reason why I used to love Mondays – well, that was before office J.O.B.s but watch this space, I’ll get there again!
Something has shifted with the turn of the year. I don’t know about you, but I’ve felt and I’m still feeling a strange liberation, as if I’ve shaken off the dust of the past and am finally free to embrace the present, and a whole line of new present-s that make up the future. It looks bright and beautiful. Wishful thinking? I’d call it sensing. Those of you who are practitioners of magic and all things to do with intuition, will understand the difference.
The difference is leaving it with the intuitive sense of something, versus taking concrete steps. And I’m making plans for this year, already working on putting some of them into practice. Wanna hear? I mean, read?
1. My Coaching website and offers are being completely revamped to be more accessible, easier to understand, and most importantly, more affordable. I believe it’ll get me more and more regular clients, so it’s a win on all sides! This one’s already in the works; stay tuned.
2. I’m reviewing my daytime job and income. This one is also a work in progress and nowhere near finished, but I know I’m more than ready to change whatever needs changing.
3. I’m setting medium- and long-term intentions around spending more time with my budgies and working on the Dream of my own place with a bird sanctuary. All this is getting more concrete as I figure out exactly what it’ll take and cost.
4. There’s a secret project as well that I’m very excited about, and I know it sounds lame but I really can’t say anything about it yet. You’ll know when I’m ready, I promise!
As for 2013, it was a year with a huge learning curve. It was the year when I finished my Advanced Diploma in Coaching, set up my Coaching business, got my new job going. It was also a year of finally slowing down and finding more balance again between work and play. A year of much-loved friends getting married, love-filled get-togethers, and new acquaintances.
Love pouring in all directions. That’s my main takeaway from 2013, and really, isn’t that great?
But there was also something indefineable, something holding me down, making me play small, or smaller than I am. I feel I’m finally free of it now, but for some time I was holding myself back with that feeling. No longer.
Let’s hug trees this year, take walks and find our strength in nature, love each other and love the animals and love the earth. Let’s judge less and support more. Let’s forget fear and embrace abundance. Let’s work our magic to heal what needs to be healed, and strengthen what is valuable, including ourselves. Let’s grow and expand, all in tune with the elements and the powers that be (not the worldy ones, the REAL powers that be).
Let’s make this a year to remember.
