I’ve just settled on my word of the year and I’m so excited!
It’s such a funny process. I never know what it’s going to be until it hits me.
A couple of years ago I chose it was “Inspiration”. (I would like to think I chose it, but really I think it chose me!). At that point I really wanted to be inspired but hadn’t thought a lot about what actually inspired me. So it became a wonderful reference for my entire year. As I hadn’t yet named my business, I even used “Inspiration” as the title of my webpage for a while. Every time I jumped on my website I was reminded of my word of the year!
One of the things I love about picking a word for the year is how it engages my intuition. I’m the kind of person who usually needs to look at all the options before I make a decision…and can get paralyzed as a result. But for me, picking a word of the year is all about paying attention to…well, my attention! What am I being drawn to? What synchronicities are happening that I need to tune in to? Where is my focus leaning for next year? What do I want to change in my life?
But in the end, it usually just feels like a 2 x 4 hitting me over the head, which is what happened on Thursday. I was preparing some food that I was bringing down to my sister’s for Thanksgiving, and thinking how excited I am about the upcoming “Goddess Approach to 2015” Retreat that I’m planning. I’ve really wanted to engage the ideas around feminine empowerment for a while.
It’s funny how these thoughts can be so subtle and quiet, yet have the weight of a ton of bricks. That’s what happened, a little side thought… “oh, maybe Divine Feminine could be my theme for 2015?”
Then I realized how powerful that felt, how exciting. Yippee! I got it! Divine Feminine. I started to feel like I was embarking on a quest – to explore, engage, and integrate into my life Divine Feminine. That’s it!
