Forget the new year's resolutions! Tune in to your heart and let's get real about your inner truth and the year you just lived.
A strong suggestion - directive really - would be to develop the habit of centering yourself and connecting to your heart and highest Self before you do this kind of review and intention setting. To be free of the clutter that your mind accumulates that drives you into more egocentric and self-limiting places, this journaling is best done when you move beyond any confusion of the mind. You will create much more impassioned and exciting intentions and goals which you can truly put all of your energy into when your intentions come from intuition and higher sense of who you are and your potential.
This meditation will be useful for centering, grounding and connecting this way.
Grab your journal and pen and for this year’s review and next year in vision...
