Happy 2017 to all… from a numerology perspective it is a “1” year representing new beginnings. If you have followed my blogs over the years, you know that I create my Intention Words for each year instead of typical New Year’s resolutions. They inspire me to focus my thoughts and actions to create very real results.
I took time just before Christmas to go on a personal 2 day retreat at Grey Heron with Andrea Mathieson. The retreat allowed me to step away from my office and home activities and focus completely on what the energy of this New Year was calling me to step into. It was very insightful, nourishing and surprising.
Reviewing 2016 Words of Intention
My 2016 words were Explore, Plan and Create and as I review the year, they definitely showed up in so many ways.
Exploring brought me to the Simplicity Online Course, A Dundun workshop, joining a Course in Miracles group, meeting an amazing hang drum/flute musician and my husband and I co-owning a classic motor coach with another couple. A really big exploration was planned in 2016 and manifested the first week of 2017. Which was a first-ever family trip to a southern all-inclusive destination for my husband’s 60th birthday! Amazing!
Planning resulted in a fabulous year of Women’s Wellness Circles, a series of Enneagram workshops, a new organic mattress from Dormio Beds and finally a new office move in December.
I was able to Create a new Reiki Retreat with my reiki mastery initiate and use my creative juices to design the layout of my new office.
New Intention Words for 2017
The new expansive energy of 2017 is calling me to bring in Stillness, Recycle, Technology Flow and Fearless Living. Here is what comes up around these words currently, though I know they may manifest in completely different forms as the year unfolds.
I am realizing the value of stillness as I mature in my life. I have always been a person who wants to experience and be part of all that attracts me in life. This can result in having a very full schedule and even if it involves everything I love – too much is still too much! I intend to plan stillness into every day as well as 1-2 day get ways throughout the year.
This refers to preparing for renovations at our home. Room by room I would like to see what can move on to a new home and make room for new space and creative expression. Simple but BIG!
Oh my, I have dodged this one for many years. Just ask my sons who bought me an iPod many Christmas’s ago that is still in my drawer not being enjoyed as I had envisioned. I am going to solicit help to get comfortable with the capabilities of my iPod, iPhone, Pod Casts, digital photobooks, video etc. Who knows where this may lead. LOL!
Finally, Fearless Living!
This was really inspired by a book I read on my holiday on my brand new Kobo entitled “Dying to be Me” by Anita Moorjani. A true story of Anita’s near death experience and the message she is sharing with the world. It certainly spoke about so many things that I have heard, read and to a large degree, believe to be true, however it was the right synopsis and the right time that has really resonated deep within me. I do not know how this will manifest in the coming year and beyond however I do know I will keep open to exploring it in every way.
For those of you in this geographic area – Karen Strumos will be talking about the numerology of 2017 at this Thursday’s Women’s Wellness Circle in Sharon.
I have no doubt it will be a super amazing ride around the sun for 2017. So many of you shared this exercise last year and I hope you are moved to do the same this year. We are magnificent creators and we were made for these times.
What is calling you this year? I encourage you to share it.
It’s great to share and learn from each other. I would love to hear from you. You can connect with me by email or telephone, or click the contact tab at the bottom of the screen if you are reading this post on the website. Don’t forget to join in the conversation on Facebook too!
