As we close out 2015, it is a good time to be gentle with your sweet self and make some time for reflection. Knowing that you shared your openhearted vulnerability with the world, smiled at a stranger, gathered courage to face the world yet another day doing your best. These are all wonderful, magnificent gifts to have shared with the universe. Love and peace are most often found in the simplest things, and moments.
One of my favorite things to do at this time of year is to create a vision board for the New Year, envisioning what kind of mood and tone you would like to see for yourself in the New Year. This can be done in any number of ways, but my preferred way is to take any size blank canvas, find a pile of magazines, some Mod Podge glue and a tool to use it with . . . a foam brush works wonderful. Next step is to go through the magazines and start ripping out images that speak to you, make a pile of them, don’t sensor yourself. Do this for about 15 minutes or so, and then go through the pile choosing the images again that speak most to you and what you wish to envision for the coming year. Begin to arrange the images on your canvas. You can overlap, use word images, etc. Tear, rip, cut, and add some tissue paper let yourself go. Start by gluing them down by first applying some glue to the surface of the canvas and then to the back of the image. Let it set up for a while and then add more glue on top. Keep adding, layering, creating your vision for the New Year and what you want to manifest. When it dries it will be a wonderful collage of images that are personal to you and your growth. Hang this collage in a place where you will see it every day to remind yourself of what you wish to see happen, where you want to take yourself in the coming year.
Wishing you all many blessings on creating a year of peace in your own heart and in turn for our universe.
