Okay, so now that we’ve worked on releasing 2014 (see yesterday’s post here on releasing 2014), let’s welcome in 2015.
Normally, people set New Years Resolutions. They resolve to take certain actions or achieve certain outcomes on a very practical level. What we’re going to do is set a New Year Intention. This intention can be a word, a feeling, a learning you’d like you achieve, whatever works for you. But it’s important to infuse the intention with a feeling. If it’s highly emotive, it’s more likely to stick.
What would you like to welcome into your life in 2015?
One of my Words and Intentions for 2015 is to have FUN! I realised recently that can tend to focus too much on the doing of work and the seriousness of life, not enough of the being– too many self appointed “have to’s” and not enough self appointed “want to’s”.
That said, It is also my intention to infuse fun into work too. Why should ‘work’ be anything but fun? And life can certainly be more fun if we choose it to be.
Okay, so answer each of these questions (I’ve added some example answers to show you how it might look):
1. What qualities are you going to infuse 2015 with?
honesty, openness, courageousness
2. What would you like to have happen in 2015?
Buy our first home
2. How would you like to feel in 2015?
Joy, relaxed, excited
Putting them together into a sentence or intention would look a little like this:
In 2015, It is my intention to look for things to feel excited and joyful about in buying a home where we feel open and relaxed.
There are no right or wrongs in the process. The idea is to get as many feeling words into your intention as you can so that the intention is more likely to be the forefront of your heart and mind.
Intentions can be great ways to begin your day too – when you get up on the 1st of January (whatever time that may be for you) set an intention for your day. Even if it’s as simple as “I intend to feel relaxed by the end of the day”
It can also be good to write your word/intention for the year somewhere you’ll see it often as a constant conscious and subconscious reminder of what to look for in 2015.
As the new year rings in say this:
“I release 2014 with love and I welcome 2015 with love, fun and prosperity” (use whichever words feel right for welcoming into your 2015.
