Retreat & Renew
This is usually the time of year people are really clear about the direction they want to go in. We are conditioned to think we have to have all our yearly goals ready for January 1, and while that may have been true in the past, I don't feel it is now. With the energies of last year, Covid, and the wind of change, it has all brought into our lives, I feel it is time to take a deep breath to give your body and soul a place to play catch up. To do that, a good starting place would be to re-evaluate what you thought last year's goals were and whether or not you were able to accomplish them. Ask yourself whether they still hold value or do you need to let go of them under the present circumstances.
We need time to re-think what we're even feeling or where we want to go right now. Do not be so concerned about getting a late start into the year. Spirit says the reason we don't get what we want is we don't know what we want. With that in mind pretend you're on a personal retreat. You may be stuck in the house but take advantage of the time and space. For some, you may only need a week, for others maybe a month. Take the time to overview yourself as you take a break to reevaluate where you are and where you want to be.
January and February are going to be tough months for everyone energetically and so you can take this time to prepare and be ready to hit the ground running in March. Better to take the time now to get clear rather than wasting the whole year. The clearer you get, the quicker you can manifest it!
You may decide that there are things you want or need to clear from last year. If that is the case, just do it. Use a form that makes sense to you. Maybe you want to take time to plan a ritual of some kind. Start by looking at every area of your life and take time to take an objective view of all areas of your life. If you are still in alignment, great! If not, what needs to change in order for you to make progress. Are there emotions or old attachments that need to be cleared? Water rituals are great for that.
Once you have taken inventory and created more clarity, you are ready to proceed with action steps and a plan of when to initiate them. Plan from March on when the Universe will be better able to support you at that time. Make it fun. Do things that will support you. Even nourishing things will help you get clear so build them in your daily retreat and just relax into the changes. You will be so glad you did.
