December is time for reflecting on the past year! To embrace fully the new opportunities of 2015, I recommend letting go of 2014’s successes and failures. By naming those experiences you will be clearer about your goals for 2015. It will enhance the potential for having an abundant year. (You will want clarity around your successes to grow the energy for new ones to add in new year)
Commit to envisioning what you would like 2015 to be for you. Your brain will carry the vision and become the message it will act upon. Your thinking mind can then integrate them into your day-to-day events. Don’t let the space of 2015 fill up with random events and experiences. Become the director!
Some clarifying questions to answer for your reflection :
- What did I learn? (skills, knowledge, awareness, etc.)
- What did I accomplish? A list of my wins and achievements.
- What would I have done differently? Why?
- What were my biggest challenges/roadblocks/difficulties?
- How do I want to be different in 2015?
- For what am I particularly grateful?
You can add what ever you wish to your 2014 remembering. If you write them out you your mind can let go of remembering them. It gives your mind more t freedom and release. (Not unlike the scene in Harry Potter when Dumbledore takes his wand and moves his current experience into the bowl of liquid holding his memories!)
