New Beginnings: How to prepare for the New Year

1. Review 2021 - congratulate your wins and failures

Acknowledge the highs and lows of the year. Give yourself a pat on the back for what you have accomplished, big and small. 
But don’t just stop at your wins, you've got to celebrate your failures too! Why? Because failures and setbacks are valuable lessons towards your soul’s growth. As the saying goes, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger! It’s easy to wallow in self pity or be stuck in a victim mentality when things don’t go our way. But what separates the winners from the losers is how they think - a small mindset shift is all it takes to see the positive in any situation. Take failures and setbacks as learning opportunities and steps towards your success!

2. Spring clean your life (figuratively and literally)

It’s time to clear out things that no longer serve you (people, places, things). The only way to usher in new energy is to clear out the old. When you release and let go of old energies , you are making space for the new to come in. The Universe can only bring in your manifestations if you release what’s no longer for your highest good. This could be anything - clothes you know you’ll never wear, ex-lovers, friends to limiting beliefs. 

3. Journal & Visualise your dream life

Journaling and visualising are great manifestation tools. The act of writing down and imaging your dreams and desires sets the intention to the Universe that this is what you want. You want to write in present tense, like you already have it - because you do! When you visualise, say your dream home, you want to also feel those blissful emotions like you are living in your dream home. 

Don’t limit yourself to what you think you deserve, dream big and believe in the impossible.

4. Set goals & Take action

Now that you have planted the seeds with your thoughts, you want to set tangible goals on how you can achieve them. You can set weekly, monthly and even yearly goals. It can be pretty fulfilling when you look back on your journal when you've hit those milestones. It’s ok if you don’t hit those goals at the planned time, you can always adjust the timeline. What’s important is that you continue to work towards them. The Universe will transpire to assist you along your journey when what you are working for is aligned with your highest good.

5. Trust & Let go

Part of the manifestation journey is trusting that the universe will deliver. We’ve all been there, when we’ve worked so hard and for so long, but nothing seems to be happening. You get frustrated, upset and give up. Here’s the magic - The moment you relax and have COMPLETE trust and faith in the universe, that’s when your manifestations materialise.
