Its January 5, 2015, Monday, and a Full Moon.
I have been reflecting for weeks (since the Solstice) on the gifts and challenges that I was given in 2014.
In January last year I followed the 'Visioning Your Year' tutorial by Shiloh Sophia McCloud, and was hopeful and open to new experiences… I had made adventure and new friends a big priority, and I visioned a path that was REALLY different in reality than it was in my mind... I thought I was going to finish my novel and get published! BAHAHAHA!
What I imagined did not actually happen; And yet all of the FEELINGS that I was having during the dream WERE delivered, with so much MORE and with such intensity that Im being VERY careful about what I design for myself this year!
So this is the BIG lesson Im walking away with from 2014: FEELINGS are the true currency in life.
When I connected to how I wanted to feel and how I wanted to make others feel, I found innovative pathways to those feelings; Connecting to the sensory experience of my goals also helped attract NEW people into my life who felt good about what I was doing, and felt good about my Art.
And this was the key to progressing really fast: I spent time with people who made me feel good and followed people who made me feel GREAT. I reciprocated to the best of my ability… I asked myself, frequently, 'how can I help this person feel _________________?' (insert: loved, relief, cared for, protected, understood, focussed, able, and most important to me: NOT ALONE. )
Shiloh's Visioning Class last year was truly instrumental in isolating those feelings I wanted to have, regardless what they were connected to-- and SHES TEACHING IT AGAIN FOR FREE, on January 10, at the link below:
What did 2014 teach you?
I dont know what to hope for in 2015. Im opening the question and letting it rattle around the house with me until its ready to come forward.
If 2015 were embodied in a genie-like being for you to ask, what kinds of FEELINGS would you ask for?
