I invite you to take a journey with me as we stand at the crossroads of past, present and future. January, named after the Goddess, Jana, who is seen with two faces looking backwards and forwards, refers to the doorway of the New Year. It is the perfect time to review the past, take stock of the present, and look ahead to the future.
I recently facilitated a Vision Board Playshop and I'm sharing the worksheet and guided journey with you here. As part of this meditation, you will review the year past, become aware of who and where you are now, and envision the New Year rolling out before you, including selection of a word of the year. I recommend printing out the PDF of the work sheet, which you can download here: WORKSHEET
Then listen to my guided meditation, designed to allow you to fill out your worksheet as you go. Click here to download MP3: GUIDED JOURNEY
Next, create a vision board, a poster collaged with images and words, based on your discoveries to set your intentions for the New Year.
Vision boards are easy to do. All you need is a collection of words and images culled from magazines, cards, and other ephemera that inspire or reflect you and your dreams, scissors, glue and poster board (I like foam core for its sturdiness). I think it's always good to include at least one photo of yourself since it is your vision. Any other fun embellishments you want to use like paint, glitter, and bling are fair game. I like to buy stick-on letters to form words I can't find and want to add to my board.
I hope your New Year's vision includes journeying with me and a group of magical women from around the world for my 2014 New Moon Goddess Mystery School (Note: this is now a self-study course that you can take anytime.) It is designed to be an enriching and inspiring e-course for women who want to learn more about the mysteries and lore of goddess archetypes and what they can teach us about our own feminine mind, body, soul and spirit. This course will be delivered to your email box four times a year and you can join in the conversation if you wish by joining our secret Facebook group (although this is not required).
We start our work with the Celtic Goddess Brigid on the Aquarius New Moon on January 30, 2014. Among other things, she is an oracular goddess who was able to intuit things to come. This is the ideal time to ask questions, draw oracle cards or use other divination tools, and seek answers. Who is your goddess guide of the year? What animal will be your ally this year? Discovering these guides and helpers is a great way to fortify yourself as you step through the doorway into the Unknown of the New Year.
Brigid has many surprises in store and is waiting for you to meet her. You can join us to learn about one goddess or all four goddesses as we circle around the Wheel of the Year, meeting a new goddess on a new moon in each of the four seasons.
