When 2018 began I had a great feeling about it. Dreamed up on my New Year's eve, choosing to stay in and feel into the vision I had for myself, I managed to visualise, tune in and create a 'map' of my year to come as if it had already happened. Much of it was realised, some of it not, but then I always make space for "this or something better" - trusting in all that wants to work through me.
This technique is one we use every year in our Dream Quest events, something I have run now for 8 years, in collaboration with my colleague, co-creator and dear friend Sarah Rose Bright, and it works! Every year we create a personal mantra to encapsulate our year and last year, mine was 'limitless potential' - I felt it, I uncovered it, and along the way, I walked through a fair few caves and fires in order to fully reveal it. Quantum leaping isn't a new technique, it's been around for millennia, and its' effect is really quite remarkable. We have seen our participants make huge life changing shifts in their world as a result of this work, and of course we have been applying it to ourselves too, to really up level our work and our lives.
This year, I'm excited to dream up the next level of my work; a process I have already started committing to more fully. So what does full commitment look like?
As a coach, I truly believe in the value of coaching! It may seem like an obvious thing to say, but far too many coaches and healers don't get their own coaching and healing. For me, this is the way I grow - I look to others who may be further on the path than I am, those I admire, respect and seek to emulate, and then I pay for their time and expertise. This is my investment in myself.
Remember the scene in Chicago where Velma tells Roxy she "just can't do it alone" - well think of it like that. With a strong vision for where I intend to take my work and my life, I need others to help me see what I can't see, to help me learn what I don't know, and to bring to awareness that which remains hidden.
So last year I manifested my dream job; a job I had been waiting to take up since the previous year in Bali, working alongside my beloved breathwork teacher and his wonderful school. Of course nothing is ever quite that simple though, and often times the greatest challenges we face are both unexpected, and extremely enlightening, yet when we choose to stay present to these life lessons we are gifted an opportunity to really come to know ourselves well and to move beyond expectation into truth and acceptance. Grace and ease: Let's meet there....
So for me, this year has been one of growth, travel, letting go and calling in. My work scaled up hugely, my last child left home, and I was free to explore the world without obligation and to re-connect with my own flow. In that flow, a great deal revealed itself.
There are probably a ton more, but for now, that's a great start.
So going forward, I take those lessons, every single one of them into 2019 as my teachers and my guiding light. I pledge to continue to look after my health, to listen to my body, trust my gut instinct, and value my heart as my true teacher. I will apply discernment, claim my authority, value my work, and share as much as I can that may light the pathway for another human being. I've worked hard to transform my own stories, I've gone from being a heroin addicted hooker to a fabulously funky teacher and coach and I love that these stories did not become me, they simply became my 'medicine' in this world.
I am starting a 21 day one juice a day challenge on Jan 1st 2019. It's not about fasting, or cleansing, it's about committing to yourself. It's about creating a healthy new habit routine, so if you would love to join us as we juice up the internet (!) come and sign up in my Facebook Group and have fun with others doing the same - no previous experience is necessary and you can do it with a juicer OR a blender, it's more important you just join in than find the reasons you can't.
Watch out for more amazing work and offerings in the coming year too; this is my year and I'm claiming it! Are you?
