There are many good things that have happened in the past year; but for many people, 2011 has been challenging. And, delightful or challenging, this year is winding its way to an end.
Whether your year has been a good one or fraught with “learning experiences”, we could all use an even better one next year in 2012. For that reason, as the holidays make their way to a close, I’d like to invite you to join me in doing a little energy work with a thought towards prosperity, health and joy in the coming year.
A goodly number of us spend at least part of the week picking up after the holidays or in preparation for the New Year. There’s fridges to clean out, wrapping paper and boxes to discard, gifts to find homes for, decorations to stow away. And as you clean, or straighten, or declutter, you can make your efforts do double duty.
Set an intention as you bring your home back into balance. As you discard things you don’t need anymore, intend that you are letting go of the thoughts, beliefs, and outmoded energy that no longer serves you, to make room for better beliefs and energy. As you find a home for gifts, intend a blessing that flows between you and the giver, blessing you both. As you clean, intend that making your house more welcoming welcomes new blessings into your life.
(For those of you who are unfamiliar with the concept of setting an intention, an intention is just a goal used to focus the energy in an activity to manifest a change in the world by non-ordinary means. More details can be found in other posts on this blog. …)
And, as you set your intentions, know that you are changing your energetic vibration and attracting more of the kind of things you want into your life.
Then watch and see what 2012 brings for you
Happy New Year to come
