Each season brings gifts and opportunities for growth as we journey through the year.
Autumn is a season of reflection, thanksgiving, completion, and letting go of what no longer serves you to enable you to fully embrace the new year.
I invite you to begin the process of bringing 2016 to a close by reflecting on your year relative to your goals. Celebrate what you have accomplished to date and make a plan, if you don’t already have one, to complete what needs to be completed by the end of the year.
Give thanks for your blessings as a part of this process. If you keep a gratitude journal, take time to review what you have captured over the course of the year and how your life has changed as a result of your blessings.
I also encourage you to set aside 15-20 minutes of silence each day in coming weeks to explore what you need to release in order to fully embrace the new year. Begin your quiet time by asking what is complete and in need of release. Expect that you will receive guidance. When you ask a question in the context of sacred time, it is no longer a simple question. It is an invocation for revelation. Capture your guidance in a notebook or journal and move into action with confidence that you are being guided to your highest good.
Autumn is a wonderful time to clear clutter on every level – physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually – in preparation for the new year. Set yourself up for an amazing new year by starting this process now.
Questions for reflection
- What have I accomplished this year?
- What didn’t I accomplish that I really wanted to? Why?
- Who or what has been my greatest blessing? Why?
- What is complete and in need of release so that I can embrace the next phase of my journey? How can I begin releasing it?
All the best,
