A Gift to You - Happy New Year from Eyes Turned Skyward

This has been a powerful experience in the past, so I have made it an annual tradition. It is my gift to you (but really, from you to you) - an incredibly effective tool to bring intention into your life. Set aside a few uninterrupted moments of quiet and reflection to complete this exercise.

Step One:
Reflecting on 2015, consider the following areas of your life: personal life/spiritual development; romance/intimacy; wellness/self-care; finances; career/business; physical environment; social life/fun;

list your wins, successes and breakthroughs;

list your "losses", disappointments and breakdowns. Now - set these aside. They are part of your past.

Step Two:
Choose 5 lessons you have learned this year that you would like to take with you into 2016. When you decide which lessons to include, remember that these are lessons that you will use consciously in the New Year.

Step Three:
Now imagine that it is December of 2016. Make a list of your wins, successes and breakthroughs. Be specific, and write them as though they have already happened. Make the list as long as you like.

Which wins, successes or breakthrough resonate for you?

Which ones create good anticipation? Excitement?

Which ones SURPRISE YOU?
“The priceless lesson in the New Year is that endings birth beginnings and beginnings birth endings. And in this elegantly choreographed dance of life, neither ever find an end in the other.”  ~Craig D. Lounsbrough
