Welcoming 2020

Happy Holidays Everyone!

As we enter a new decade, I want to share with you a powerful exercise that I have done for many years that allows me to reflect with hope as well as provide insight for the coming year. If you read this after the start of the year, no problem, since this can be done any time of year. It just happens to be a new year’s ritual for me.

You can choose a deck of spiritual cards or another meditative tool.

(1) First, I find a quiet place to do this exercise alone.

(2) Second, I light a candle and listen to soft music, spending about 10 minutes quietly reflecting on the previous year. I ask that my actions from that year be blessed and purified to seed new actions in the coming year.

(3) Next, I focus on the coming year. Using a chart or written sheet with questions and spaces for answers (people have created neat ways to record), I ask the following questions and draw at least one card per question to see what the “energy” of that question might bring. I then record my answers. I am able throughout the new year to reflect on the questions and cards drawn that I drew in this exercise. Here are the questions I ask and maybe some of these may inspire you:

  • What overall energy best describes the teachings for me in 2019?
  • What overall energy will best help me in the New Year 2020?
  • If (when) faced with challenges for growth in 2020, what is the best energy for me to remember?
  • To balance my daily living for 2020, what do I need to remember (regarding doing/being)?
  • In order to manifest my heart’s desires for 2020, what energy would be helpful?
  • For each month (I list them out), what will give me insight into the energy of that month?
  • What energy best reflects the “mental” picture for 2020?
  • What energy best reflects the “emotional” picture for 2020?
  • What energy best reflects the “physical” picture for 2020?
  • What energy best reflects the “spiritual” picture for 2020?

(4) I post this sheet with the completed questions and comments on a bulletin board or back of a door simply to glance at it periodically throughout the year for reflection. (By the way, if you are in a relationship, you can also choose individual as well as joint cards for certain questions.)

I wish you the VERY BEST in 2020 and look forward to a powerful year together. Remember to subscribe to my blog for inspiration and insider information about Heartliving workshops and products.

Many blessings to you in 2020! –With gratitude, Cynthia

“What You Resist, Persists”

Something we all do from time to time is to fill up our life with activities so as not to feel our feelings. For example, when you are lonely and depressed, you may find yourself responding to this feeling by suppressing it. The suppression takes the form of diversions, such as activities that keep you from being really present with your feeling.

In seeking to avoid being depressed, you are actually rejecting the feeling, and in doing so, rejecting a part of yourself. In this way, you get rid of the loneliness temporarily, but may find yourself locked into a cycle of depression and diversion.

I believe that “the only way out is through” and this implies that the only way to work with and release the depression is by moving into it. In other words, you would allow yourself the opportunity to feel it, give it space, and thereby integrate it. While you may feel that experiencing the feeling of the depression would be overwhelming, you would survive the feeling and actually lessen the intensity of it as you stayed with it.

Another favorite saying is “What you resist persists.” We could apply that principle here since when you do not allow the feeling of depression to be felt, the depression persists.
