The Power of Reviewing 2012

Happy-New-Year-2013-HD-Wallpaper-2Happy New Year everyone!  We made it!

Clearly, 2013 is just the beginning of a massive shift in consciousness… I think the Mayans knew this very well, that 2012 marked the end of an old way of being and interacting – with ourselves and those around us – as well as the planet.

And as I watched the amazing NYE fireworks on the Thames two days ago, I felt excited and full of optimism for the year to come. The New Year is traditionally a time of resolution- and goal-setting. But this year I decided to celebrate a little differently.

Instead of setting goals – I’ve looked back over 2012 and did a ‘completion’ exercise on the whole year. This a great way to let your subconscious know you’re through with certain projects and can put them to bed. It’s a way of acknowledging your triumphs, your challenges and bringing to your awareness exactly what you’ve learnt the past year.
So I asked myself the following questions:

1. What have I created?

2. What have I learnt?

3. What is it true to let go of?

4. What would I love to create now?

You could do this ‘straight’ ie just ask the questions and receive the answers. Or you could do it more intuitively – so you’ll get answers from your subconscious (no avoiding the truth there!).

To tune in to your subconscious is very easy. Simply close your eyes, take a couple deep breaths and imagine you are surrounded by a circle of gold light.
Ask yourself the first question, ‘What have I created’ and allow the first image or symbol to appear. It could be anything – from a banana to a colour to a mountain… Don’t judge the image… just open your eyes and write it down. Then it’s time to interpret it.

What does this symbol or image mean to you? Just make it up. There is no right or wrong answer. Simply allow your subconscious to speak. Then using the same symbol, ask yourself,  “What have I learnt.”

Repeat the above for questions 3 and 4, getting a new symbol for each question.
You’ll probably find the answers quite illuminating as I did. By doing this exercise intuitively you are more likely to receive the ‘truth’ of your creations, your learning, your letting go and what your heart would love to create next.

Happy completing! And happy creating 🙂
