It’s almost time for the new year. I’ve noticed that many people dislike New Year’s. All the pressure to make (and fulfill) resolutions can dampen the spirit of this fresh do-over of a season. (It’s too bad really, because who doesn’t need a do-over from time to time?!)
The threat-and-resistance combo that comes with classic New Year’s Resolutions is one of the reasons why we don’t do them in my online soulcare community, Flock. Instead, we set intentions. More specifically, we allow god/the universe/spirit/intuition set our intention. How? With a guided meditation that helps us find our guiding-star word for the year. (You are welcome to join us!)
Now, I know what you might be thinking. Sometimes all this spirituality stuff can feel a bit pie-in-the-sky. Isn’t it all just navel gazing and wishful thinking?
Like any spiritual exercise, sometimes meditation brings clarity, and sometimes it’s just 5 minutes of sitting still. That being said, our January guided meditation practice in Flock has proven to be a powerful experience for many Flock members. (I love hearing what word’s they have received, and writing personal blessings for each one!)
Since I don’t want to tell tales outside the nest, I’ll share my experience instead. Here’s a little story about where the meditation came from, and how it impacted me.
Thinking about joining Flock? That would delight us to no end! Now is a great time because you’ll get the January video lesson about the differences between resolutions and intentions, and learn how to set a powerful intention. And you’ll be in the nest in time for my new-for-2013 mid-month videos for some extra soulcare. Plus, if you join now you’ll get grandmothered in at our current $15 a month rate. (It’s going up soon.) And, you’ll be here in time for me to write a personalized blessing for you for 2013! Of course, you can stop and start at anytime, if it doesn’t scratch where it itches. So do come along! Welcome home.Â
