I’ve spent the last few days exploring 2013, to learn more about what is possible here and how I want to be this year.
I started with my Create a Map kit which showed me that what I really want in 2013 is to feel satisfied + gorgeous.
Satisfied + gorgeous.
I was not sure what that meant, I was looking more for business direction, so it felt a little confusing – at first. The longer I sat with it and explored it, the more sense it made.
And a few days later I can see how perfect it is. Now I have this clear picture of what is happening in my life when I feel satisfied + gorgeous:
- It means I’m not comparing.
- And I’m not striving or trying to get somewhere.
- It means I love where I am and what I’m doing.
- It means I’m having adventures.
- And I’m relaxed and filled up and taking exquisite care of myself – body, mind, emotions, soul.
- And I’m being me, like really being me. And my life feels true to who I really am. And my business supports all of that.
But I can’t make any of these things the goal.
Because as soon as I do that, everything starts to collapse. I start to look at how-to and what-to-do. I get lost in the details. My inner critics come into play.
When I think about feeling satisfied + gorgeous, right here right now in this moment, everything comes back together.
The first time I consciously took this approach to the New Year was in 2010.
After lots of meditating and exploring it felt like the energy around me was “Make It Happen” energy though I didn’t define what “It” was. I led a workshop (I was still doing all of my work in-person back then) called Make It Happen In 2010.
In 2010 I was really very comfortable working part time and doing my creative soul work part time. I needed that “Make It Happen” vibe to crack out of that comfort zone.
And by the end of the year – I quit my job to do my creative soul work full time.
I “made it happen” because deep down no matter how comfortable I was I always knew I had a much bigger purpose. And that my job, even though it was just part time at that point (I spent years growing my creative soul work while slowly working fewer and fewer hours at my job) was holding me back.
But had I set that resolution/intention/whatever on Jan 1, 2010 – I doubt I would have Made It Happen I would have gotten too bogged down in how-to and what-to-do, not to mention the inner critic attacks.
Knowing how it will feel to be there is much more important than knowing what being there even means.
It gets you there both faster and easier.
The trick is to be working with the right energies/qualities.
That take into account your personal energy and the energy around you.
Your creativity, passion, spirit and uniqueness.
The direction that moves you towards your personal evolution.
The qualities that your purpose wants to express out into the world at this time.
There is a theme that will hold the essence of all of that for you.
That theme holds the most powerful qualities for you to align yourself with at this time.
Aligning with those qualities is the shortcut to get to where you want to be.
The best way to figure that out? Creativity, imagination + play, of course.
