We made it through another year.
2013 has brought a lot of opportunity, and also a lot of change. Stepping into the new year has brought me a chance to align with deeper parts of my own journey. This is going to be a year of exploration, growth, and movement.
One thing that I have always wanted to do, but have for one reason or another have not gone all the way is shifting to eating raw. So, this is the year I plan on going all the way with it. Making the shift gives me better connection to the foods that are entering my body, my health, and my spiritual practice. I do feel that what we eat should be part of our spiritual practice.
I’m spending more time writing poetry this year. I got away from it for a while. Poetry brings us face to face with the raw elements of our life. Poetry is alive, it moves, it lasts mere moments–but echos deeply. So, my goal is going to be to write a poem a day. I’ll post some of them here. I am also going to work a bit harder to get some of my work published. I’ve wanted to do a chapbook for sometime, and now is the perfect year to make that a reality. So, stay tuned for that. I am also going to start attending open mics/slams again. There is something beautiful and sacred about sharing your work in the public space.
I am spending more time with sacred texts, writing my own commentaries, and will be posting some of that here as to open deeper dialogue. Too often we trust only the templates of others. It is important for us to explore our personal relationship with spirituality. 2013 was a year of exploration for me. I had the opportunity to dive into the study of paganism and witchcraft. I learned a lot about myself, got to attend and meet some wonderful teachers, and saw how the dynamics of magick play a role in the ever-changing landscape of life, but as with all things that change, those are no longer my avenues of study. I still practice personal forms of ritual, but I am moving those to the deeply personal, and no longer engaging the public sphere in that way. I closed up the Yogawitch.com blog site, but will leave it up as an archive of my journey into intersecting Magick and Yoga practice.
2014 is going to be my year of placing spirituality in action. I am diving deeper into soul specific work, working with intuition, and going back to my core spiritual work. Journaling daily helps to connect to my soul journey. My core practice has always been rooted in Christianity and the Eastern traditions. I have a wonderful bible journal that I use to do study, soul dialogue, and daily tune ins. Each day I take a moment to dialogue with my soul. Intuition always has a lot to say if we pause and listen deeply. The next step is capturing this dialogue, referring back to it, and trusting what is coming through.
I am going to start blogging with greater frequency. Last night at the New Years Eve Psychic Fair at Sacred Circle Books, I kept hearing that I need to finish my book (from other psychics, and a few of my clients). I am going to bring that through this year as well.
Diving deeper into my yoga practice (both professional and personal) is also on my list. I am going to be posting flow videos, technique study, and taking yoga on the road (big project in the works, stay tuned).
Travel is also on my agenda this year. I plan to take my life to the road a bit, to do a spiritual adventure of sorts. I am looking for places to visit, people to engage, and communities to share space with (place your suggestions below, or send them to me via email firstname.lastname@example.org)
So, this is going to be a very engaging year. This is the year of action, but also closure. My mantra is: I am READY.
What are you shifting into this year?
You are loved. You are Beautiful. You are Divine.
