Goodbye and thank you, 2019… Hello 2020!

So here we are not only at the end of the year, but the end of a decade, and I don’t know about you, but there is something that really pleases my sense of symmetry and balance about the year 2020. 

It makes me feel calm just looking at it, especially after the crazy ride that 2019 has been!

In fact, in numerology, the energies of the year 2020 are about vision and grounded, practical accomplishment created through taking responsible, orderly, aligned action to bring about a sense of peace, balance and stability.

The number 4 (2+0+2+0) is very calm and stable. Think about how a square is a strong, solid 4-sided shape. So it suggests that what will be available to us this year will be the strength and focus we need to build solid foundations that support our hopes and dreams, and the capacity to create something of value that stands the test of time. It’s about experiencing tangible success that comes from the work we do, and offers the potential for financial flow and long term security. 

Thank goodness for that!

I know I say it every year, but I feel really good about the year ahead. 

Also, as with the end of every cycle we have the perfect opportunity to reflect, review, release, celebrate and give gratitude for the year now ending – or in this case, the past decade if you would like to really dive in – and then follow that up with a visioning session and setting intentions for all the new experiences that you would like to call into your life in the next year, or ten.

THIS CREATION RITUAL REALLY WORKS…

I wanted to share my end of year ritual with you that I’ve been doing for the past couple of years.

I’ve loved creating the nurturing space for myself to do this in the lead up to New Year, and doing it on New Year’s Eve itself feels extra potent, and that alone seemed like a good enough reason to tell you about it.

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL…

In preparing what I wanted to write to you I have just read back what I wrote in my journal a couple of years ago and I AM BLOWN AWAY!

When I did this process on New Year’s Eve in December 2017 I wrote in detail about the love relationship I was calling in – and then I forgot about it.  

And as I write this I can happily tell you that he is relaxing in the sitting room in the stunningly beautiful house that we moved into together last month! (Although this pic was taken from the paddling pool on the hottest day of the year in July!)

Everything I wrote during that ritual came from visioning from the heart and tapping into unlimited possibility, while I focused on what I wanted to feel in this relationship.

So much of what I am now experiencing is exactly as I had written, and some of it still exists as the potential that I know we are growing into together as we get to know one another at ever deeper levels.

Now I’m not going to say that it has been easy the whole way – far from it. In order to attract what we desire into our lives we have to let go of our current identity – and the ego will put up a fight because it avoids change. But with focus and commitment to what I’d been asking for, and by being willing to do the hard stuff together, it is bringing more of what I had asked for to come to me.

So it’s been a great lesson in how we manifest our desires through being willing to receive ALL that the universe brings us. Because it’s in that place of non-resistance to everything – including all the unpleasant, uncomfortable, scary and difficult things that the ego mind will bring up – that we receive the flow of abundance that is also coming our way. 

And likewise, if we resist feeling the not-so-good stuff, we stop the flow of life bringing to us what we have asked for as well.

We have to say YES to all that life brings, because life really is pretty damn intelligent and knows what it’s doing!

 

My ritual – here’s what to do…

To start with I make a sacred space and carve out uninterrupted time.

I might light a candle, put on some relaxing music, light some incense, get some delicious nibbles and something to drink, and wear clothes that I will feel really good/comfortable in. Awaken all your senses.

Then I get my materials ready. I use a large A3 sketch book as an art journal so I can go mad with coloured pens and paint, and let myself express what wants to come through me much more freely.

Next I meditate and get into a really good, high frequency feeling space. I call in my guides and connect to my Infinite Self/the divine, so that I am connected to the field of all possibilities and the creative power of the universe.

Heart-Aligned Visioning Process

While I am connected to this higher frequency I tune into what energies I’m called to explore in the coming year. It’s a bit like setting your sat nav to take you to a specific place, but in this you are setting coordinates for the universe to lead you to a feeling tone destination.

This might be one or a few things – FREEDOM…  SUPPORTEDNESS… LOVE… ABUNDANCE… ADVENTURE… SELF CARE, etc. 

After I’m clear on this I feel into what my intentions are.

Here are some words for you to feel into that may resonate for you:

*NB You could also try tuning into archetypes that embody the particular qualities you’d like to embody yourself if this feels more powerful to you.

When you have the words or archetypes that resonate most for you, use different colours and allow your creativity to express itself. Write, draw or paint them into your journal or on a piece of paper.

Then, staying connected to this higher frequency space, let your heart flow your intentions onto another page, keeping your head out of the way as much as possible.

 

Possibility questions

Next comes the really juicy part of the ritual. Taking one or two of my strongest, most heart felt intentions, I ask these possibility questions… 

 

  • If there were no limitations and I couldn’t get it wrong, in 2020 I would create…xyz

 Again, just let your words free-flow out of you. Your heart is connected to All That Is, and has no limitations, so give yourself permission to be as creative as possible.

 

  • What might be in the way of me making …xyz a reality, based on my limiting beliefs, stories and unhelpful shaping influences of the past?

Know your adversary… This question helps you access your limiting beliefs, fears and blocks that your current ego identity will use to hang onto your existing reality. Making them conscious helps you to know what resistance you’re likely to meet on the way to your desires, and gives you something tangible to work with.

 

  • Why is it true that I can create… xyz and be… xyz?

This is the secret sauce to blasting through those limiting beliefs, and invites you to dive into all the quantum physics and Law of Attraction stuff you know to be true, as well as:
Any healing and transformation tools or people you might have access to, such as:

  • Angels, guides and Higher Self support teams you might work with.
  • Past tangible experience of your own
  • Real life evidence of people you know personally, or are in the media who’ve achieved what you’re asking for
  • Helpful qualities of your personality and spirit.
  • The truth that you already are, or have what you want, given that all possibilities already exist, and that the creative power of the universe is always flowing through you.

Just let your words flow like water without censorship.

Claim your power.

State what you know in your heart to be true, and what you are committed to changing or creating.

Stay connected to your heart and high frequency feeling as much as you can, and just let the guidance come.

You might sense that it is coming from somewhere other than you. That’s ok, just as long as it feels light and expansive, you know it is coming from the highest part of you.

 

  • What am I grateful for in 2019?

Self explanatory, but gratitude is a wonderfully high frequency to boost your energy and magnetic attractiveness to the abundance that wants to come to you!

 

  • What energies I choosing to leave behind in 2019?

These might be qualities such as self doubt, stress, unhealthy diet, scarcity, etc. It’s an opportunity to make a commitment to release what no longer serves you.

 

  • What other energies do I choose to welcome into my life in 2020?

This expands on the first question, and after going through all the preceding questions you may have found much more that you want to experience. 

 

After really diving into this process you should be feeling a sense of expansion, lightness, direction and renewed possibility.

Now you have to let it go and let the universe do its thing in its own sweet time!

 

If you’re still feeling unsure, or you would like my support to help you get really clear about what your own specific abundance flow is, see below.

 

Visioning Sessions and Activation Process  

 

I’ve been leading Visioning Sessions with groups and individuals online and offline for many years now, usually as part of a larger programme or workshop, and now I’d love to offer them as special one off sessions.

 These would be great if you are wanting: 

  • A high frequency boost that will hold you in your greatest vibration so you can access your true vision beyond your ego identity’s fears and limiting beliefs.
  • To expand your dreams of abundance and have a greater sense of what’s possible for you.
  • More clarity about the way forward in a way that’s aligned for you.
  • Support in dissolving the first layers of resistance that are holding back the flow of abundance through your life.
  • Guidance in how to work through the subsequent blocks that you will encounter on your journey, which is the natural part of the transformation process.
