For 2011 I chose the word: Laughter. It helped me to focus on opening up. Sharing bits of myself and being vulnerable enough to feel again. It was a glorious year full of rapid changes. Yes laughter was there too. In wondrous spurts of joy I found my way to it through new friendships, retreats and being kinder to myself.
In working on choosing a word for this year I had a difficult time narrowing it down. I wanted multiple words. I wanted something that would encompass all that I am intending for this big year. I needed a big word. The word that kept nudging me was Voice. It is an umbrella of a word, covering many of the ascpects I want to focus on for 2011.
Inner Voice ~ I intend to start trusting my intuition more and listening deep within my soul for the answers. I will stop beating back my inner Wild Woman and allow her to flourish.
Outer Voice ~ I intend to express myself clearly when interacting with others and communicate my needs to the best of my ability. I will ask others what they need instead of trying to guess.
Expression ~ I intend to be courageous enough to speak my truth. I will speak up for myself and express my fears, joy and sorrow. To be open is to be alive.
Passion ~ I intend to continue to seek out all of my passions and live them fully. I will honor all artistic expressions and needs that rise within me. I will find my artistic voice without feeling the pressure to box myself into a particular medium.
Wheew! So that sounds like a lot I know but really it's fitting for the year to come. So much of my soul work and journey is only just beginning. Finding my voice will guide me right where I need to be.
What is your word?
