Happy New Year!

I hope you had a fantastic Christmas in company of all your loved ones, and created many memorable experiences to remember. As you recuperate from Christmas your mind may be wondering about New Years and the “closing” of the year.

New Year is one of my favorite holidays. It gives a huge space to reflect, create, let go off things and get ready to welcome the New Year. My family is big in traditions so every New Year we do the following traditions / rituals:

On the last 12 seconds of the year, we eat one grape per second counting down the year, giving thanks and asking for what we want. As you can imagine this can be quite challenging and fun at the same time.

After the grapes, we spend the next few minutes hugging, kissing, thanking and wishing all the best among all of us. – Probably my favorite part of the rituals-

Then, we all go to the front door where suitcases, brooms and coins are all ready to be used. Suite cases represent travels. People take the suitcases and walk towards the street and then back to the house. My entire family loves to travel so you can imagine the many times we go outside with the suitcases.  Once we finish with our travels, we sweep from the inside to the outside of the house. This helps to let go all the extra “baggage” you have been carrying during the past year. Finally, we throw coins from the outside to the inside of the house, to represent abundance in all aspects of your life. Finally, we proceed to play games, dance or sing.

No matter what traditions you have, I hope you take some time to celebrate all the successes you achieved on 2013 and start planning what you want for 2014. If you have the habit of creating a resolution list, try not creating a list of depravation – “I won’t eat chocolate, I will stop smoking, I will stop spending money on unnecessary things, etc.- Instead, focus on the satisfaction or the feeling that stopping all of those habits will bring to your life. For the example above you could write something like: “In 2014 I am living a healthier life that allows me to have more energy to do the things I love in company of the people I love.” Write it in the present tense as if it is already happening. I hope you try it and start seeing a difference in your life.

If you want to take it to the next step, and be bold, share your resolution list with us commit, and start manifesting your list. Remember I am also here to support you to have a successful 2014.  If you have not received my free series of “Unveil the Real YOU”, please make sure to do it at www.unveilyourpower.com
