If you have not heard yet, 2015 is going to be one amazing year. In Chinese astrology, it is the year of the sheep- a yin energy symbolizing peace, harmony and tranquility. This energy brings abundance when we are who we really are- in our full joy- aligned in mind, heart, body and spirit.
On New Year’s Eve, I attended a retreat at The One Center with a beautiful community of people gathered together to consciously let go of anything that may hold us back from all the joy and abundance this year brings. As I was meditating, dancing and celebrating with everyone, I noticed how quickly we had opened our hearts to each other and allowed full, authentic expression of our unique individuality. In that moment, I felt my entire being filled with love, happiness and gratitude. I thought to myself, “This is what life is about- no matter where we are, or what we are doing- to be who we are and allow others to be who they are.” Essentially, to hold the heart of every person we meet.
This begins with holding our own hearts. Seeing our heart. Listening to our heart. We have strong, powerful minds that often want to hold us back from full expression- from letting ourselves shine and stand in truth, joy and ultimately- connection. This year is all about connection. I invite you to begin this new year by sitting with your heart for 5-10 minutes upon waking. Place your hands on your heart and ask yourself- What does your heart want this year? This day? How can you allow more love and connection in your life? The Universe is here to carry your desires forward. Will you allow it?
