Cultivating a New Beginning

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2017: a year to cultivate a new beginning. 

From a numerological perspective, 2017 is a “one” year. (In short: 2+0+1+7 = 10 = 1+0 = 1.) Numerology looks at time in nine-year cycles, in which a “one” year begins a new nine-year cycle of creativity, learning and growth. It is a time of intentions and planning for the next phase. The intentions and foundations you build in 2017 can help shape the upcoming years.

A “one” year is the perfect time to set intentions and goals for yourself.  It’s an important year to take time for yourself and clarify the direction you want to travel.

At this time of focus and planning, I’d like to share two approaches that have been invaluable to me in my own intention-setting: silence and creative visualization.

Silence. As you set your plans, it is essential to give yourself the gift of silence to nurture these fledgling intentions. I recently wrote about The Gift of Silence at Thrive Global. This article focuses on the nourishment your brain is craving. I’d love to hear about your experiences with silence.

Creative Visualization. One of my favourite time-tested techniques is creative visualization. If you want help visualizing your goals for the new year (and the new nine-year cycle), try this visualization on goal-setting from This Way Up.  

Wishing you a bright and beautiful 2017—a time of new beginnings for us all. 

Unleashing Your Best Self

In this spirit of new beginnings, I’d like to share my new course on DailyOM: 8 Weeks to Your Best Self

Being the best version of yourself means loving yourself and loving your life. This course is dedicated to bringing you true happiness and abundance. In these eight weeks, I will gently lead you to overcome obstacles and do what it takes to transform your present life into the life you've been dreaming about. 

This course is offered through DailyOM with the option of selecting how much you want to pay. No matter how much you pay, you'll be getting the same course as everybody else. (And if you are not 100 percent satisfied, DailyOM will refund your money.) I hope you will join me—and women across the globe—in unleashing your best self this new year. 

Here is more information about the course and my approach to supporting your best self:

Plus: Have you been attending the 2017 Creative Life Summit? I was honored to participate as a presenter and share complimentary passes with my readers. If you are participating in the summit, you can see my presentation here. If not, check out my recent conversation with Creative Summit host James Taylor.

This Way Up is a story of healing for women who yearn to lead a fuller life, accompanied by a workbook to help readers work through personal challenges, discover new inspiration, and harness their creative power ...

Women spend so much of life nurturing and giving to others that when they find themselves alone—because of an empty nest, the end of a marriage, or the death of a partner—they often struggle with feeling purposeless. This Way Up provides a step-by-step way out of this sense of loss and into a life filled with enthusiasm, creativity, and joy.
